Have done alot of reading and research on hotel choices.am a liitle overwhelmed with the options....even though I've read "being there" is all that matters....I need to narrow the choices down. Looks like 3 basic areas to choose from "north", "west", and "south" on 179.....I would like to be within walking distance to a good breakfast spot, an easy drive or walk to good restaurants and interesting shops. Would consider a balcony with great views essential...prefer a hotel over resort or B&B.....does not have to be "romantic"....nicer than a "roadside motel" but not as fancy as a full fledged resort. A Sat/Sun/Mon night stay in late August 2014-if that matters!
Any help with best location based on my parameters would be great---2 or 3 options to lookat would be even better.
