We wanted to stay within walking distance to the beach and Main St and this delivered both for a very good price. It's directly off the PCH (convenient) and a few blocks from great dining and shops on Main St (see other reviews). You could see some minor aging around the hotel but the room was modern, clean and comfortable with a mini-fridge, microwave, free wi-fi, free parking and a free continental breakfast that had all the regular items plus microwave breakfast burritos and toaster waffles. There is free Starbucks coffee avail 24/7 also. The pool/hot tub area is awesome; very private in the center of the hotel with an open air roof-top. It appears to be family owned and everyone I dealt with was very helpful and friendly. My only criticism with the room is that I wish the sink was separated from the shower/commode instead of all together in one space.
