We have been to many many beach towns throughout CA, from Eureka to San Diego and this is the best. Obviously folks we have different criteria, but we stay here every year and can't wait to go back again next summer. They also have an AMAZING breakfast with wide variety and fresh fruit, without any actual cooking of food. And its included. Wonderful restaurants and shops in easy walking distance. We take the train up from San Diego and just walk a couple blocks to the Inn.
