The Hidden Villa Motel was a great TripAdvisor find, so I wanted to chime in as well. Despite the funny web site and name, it was an amazing place to stay. We called it "yuppie camping", since we did most of our own cooking in the kitchenette, but enjoyed eating on real plates and sleeping in a comfortable bed. At night we read or watched movies we had brought, since each cottage has a DVD player. It had the feel of a nicely appointed B&B, with nice sheets and towels, attractive furniture, and cute highly functional dishes in the kitchenette. Each cottage had a theme, but it was fun rather than hokey. We stayed in the sunflower cottage (#5) and loved it. It was a block and a half from the beach, but by being off the main drag (Hemlock St.) it was significantly quieter. We even got a great rate in late June. Linda, the owner, and her pets added a nice personal touch.
Get groceries at the Mariner Market - reasonably priced for a small market, but skip the Family Market. Or hit the Safeway 20 minutes up the road (or bring some groceries from home like we did).
It was the perfect place for a relaxing summer weekend and we are planning to go back next summer, and the summer after that, and the summer after that...
