After spending a few days at Mission Ranch we decided to move downtown and after a lot of research on TripAdvisor we chose the Normandy Inn. This is a very well located hotel with a nice brisk walk to the beach. We booked a deluxe with fireplace which was nice and not noisy even though it faced out onto Ocean Ave. The complimentary breakfast is very basic so once again we walked the five minutes to the Tuck Box on Dolores which conveniently opens at 07:30.
If you have a car to park then make sure you get there ~12:00 even though check in is at 15;00 as there only a handful of spaces and very very narrow, if you have a big SUV you may have an issue squeezing into one! All in all a very good choice.
