We just had a whirlwind 3-night trip to California, staying in this hotel. It is very nice, though right off of a main street. We kept the fan on all night so were not disturbed by the traffic noise. The room was nice, with a partial ocean view. There are rooms on the third floor with better ocean views - I wish I had called to ask to get one of those rooms. The walk to the ocean takes about 5-10 minutes depending on how fast you walk. To the marina, it's more like 10-15 minutes walk. Not bad. I agree with other reviewers that there is not nearly enough seating for breakfast. Clearly, they need more tables! The free breakfast was excellent, though. There were eggs, potatoes and meat everyday, plus the usual muffins, toast, yogurt, etc. We would definitely stay again.
