I visited the Inn at East Beach on a trip through California last month. I chose it based on teh reviews on Tripadvisor and it did not disappoint.
The setting for the hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. The hotel is tastefully decorated. Breakfasting on the patio is is a delight.
The biggest asset that this hotel has is Frank. He is one of the most welcoming hosts that I have met. He is a mine of useful information about the area and a throughly charming man.
