I agree with much of the comments by the "You can do Better" author earlier.
The area is very touristy, which doesn't interest me. However, the aquarium is less than 5 minutes away on foot and is uniformly excellent. A must -see.
Check in was OK. We faced the street which was noisy on Sat night. Ocean view probably quieter, but about $100 more per night.
The room was better than OK. Size is more than adequate. Fireplace is a nice touch. Bath is a bit dated, but size is OK. Windows need replacement.
Eat at the Sardine Factory. 5 minutes walk. Very good food and service. Not a tourist place, despite the name.
Parking is $16, with unlimited acccess.
On balance, a bit overpriced.
