OK, it's old, but the essential stuff works, call it "funky". OK, there are a lot of different kinds of people, but they are usually nice people, if a little noisy sometimes. Choose this place only if you can deal with those factors. The prices are way less than the other beach-front motels, most rooms have microwaves and fridges, and there is a nice little heated pool. I had an excellent stay. The Pier area is just a block north. Not only do you have the miles long beach-front walking/biking/rollerblading/baby carriaging walkway right at the motel, but a few blocks east there is a great hiking trail along a former railroad bed.
