This hotel is nice and staff is wonderful. The price is good compared to others nearby. But the real attraction is the location. I was concerned it was too close the pier. But it is actually the best spot. The beach nearby is great. Lots of volleyball courts and the gymnastics stuff (you have to see it to know what I mean) on the beach was so much fun to mess around in. It is real close to the best part of the 3rd Street Promenade. There are lots of places nearby to rent bikes - don't rent from the one on the pier, it is the most expensive.
