My husband and I were on a weekend getaway. Stayed in a room on the second floor overlooking the water. Originally requested a third floor room. Never seem to get as requested? Rooms are small but comfortable. Read many reviews about the sea lions. We kept the doors closed at night. Didn't bother us. There isn't air conditioning. Room got a little stuffy at night. Had dinner at their restaurant, Baleens(sp?).
Made dinner reservations in advance. Requested a marina view table. Again, request not honored. Restaurant very busy with graduations & weddings. Our server kept apologizing. Despite all that, we enjoyed the meal. We enjoyed walking the boardwalk. Found the Pier area in desperate need of renovation
with new shops & restaurants.
Really enjoyed eating lunch at Joe's Crab Shack. Loved our server Jay (from Chicago). Had dinner at Kincaids. Restaurant was really warm. Servers were sweating. Customers kept complaining. Food was fine.
Drove over to Manhatten Beach. Enjoyed breakfast at the Kettle. Had a great table outside. All in all, we had a nice weekend away. Now, back to reality....
