Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Del. First, if you do not like historic properties, save yourself a negative experience and stay in a newly constructed hotel. The Del does have some uneven stairs, but it has the charm and character that come with age. A stay on the 4th floor Victorian building yielded a clean, updated room with comfortable bedding and plush carpet. A large patio overlooked the beautifully landscaped courtyard. If you don't enjoy crowds, don't stay on the weekend. Make reservations in advance, and you will have no problem getting that outdoor table at sunset. We practically had the beach to ourselves. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The drinks are a bit pricey, but you are paying for scenery. I would avoid the Ocean Towers as they look generic and it seems they get the most complaints. The California Cabanas have a retro look, but seem awquardly located. Be very specific when booking where you want to stay. Would return again!
