Stayed over Christmas and had great service at Shark Pit downstairs (even sat in front of big tank) for breakfast. There are several stores and restaurants in walking distance (McDonalds, CVS, Walgreens across the street and Starbucks downstairs). Try the fro yo place!
The attached parking garage was very convenient, especially when you can park on the same floor as your room. The room on the third floor where we stayed had a neat view of the surf shop.
This is kind of random, but they have a decent hair dryer (opposed to one of the dinky ones attached to the wall).
I would definitely stay here again when I'm in town!!
