We stayed only one night because we were on our way home after travelling for a week. I wish we could have stayed longer. The location is perfect; right on the beach, walking distance to the public pier, downtown restaurants and bars and the walking path along the beach. We happened to be there when it finally decided to rain in CA, so we didn't do a lot of walking, but it would be so nice in the sunshine. The parking is free and the lot in large. The room was also very large (we did not spring for an ocean view) and clean with a counter and mirrored area outside of the bathroom, which is nice. There is a hot tub and a rooftop lounge area, each protected from the wind with plexiglass panels and heaters. So if you want to gaze at the ocean and cannot see it from your room, you only need to step across the hall. The breakfast (included) was plenty (hot/cold cereals, breads, hardboiled eggs, juices, tea/coffee) and the cookies were a treat when we checked in. There was also fruit, but the cookies were much more tempting after a 7 hour drive! I would definitely stay here again.
