We just got back from staying at the Beach Bum Motel. We enjoyed our stay except for the very uncomfortable beds! If it weren't for that we would go back there again but that was the deal breaker for us. Other than that, everything else was great for the price....liked having a little kitchenette, there were no issues with parking, nice pool and only a couple of blocks from the beach. Can't beat it for the price - hope to hear they have made improvements to their beds and we would stay there again next year as we loved OC and are planning on going back next summer.
