We enjoyed our overnight stay here, digging on that 70s vibe! The staff at both the lodge and the restaurant were friendly and helpful, gregarious, and unpretentious (which was not the case at several other places we visited in the area). Jim the manager was helpful and knowledgeable. The drawback was skimpy amenities (a single small bar of soap for the sink and shower, too few towels, and a feeble bathmat that did not have a non-skid backing [hazardous!], and a hot tub not ready for guests yet). Room was very clean and comfortable, so they have done a nice job of renovating. Grounds are funny and quirky, with a pair of adult-sized swings, a slide, and a roadside sculpture featuring big driftwood skewered on something that looks like the Washington Monument. Fun! Right across the highway is the ocean, though we didn't see much of it through the fog.
We really enjoyed the restaurant food: well cooked salmon, deep fried squid steaks, and a good burger. Honest and unpretentious, with a really friendly server.
This place is a good value and fun, and we'd stay here again. (And next time, we're going to try to get one of the $69 rooms!)
