Another review mentioned this too, and that is one of the major reasons we stayed here. In lieu of any grandkids, we took our dog to the beach, and she loved it as much as we did. We went in early October and really lucked out with beautiful weather. The beach is almost deserted this time of year, and the ease of just going outside your door, down some (yes a little rickety) stairs to the path out to the beach is such a plus. We had decided to eat all our meals out, but didn't realize we should have brought our own coffee. They provided a coffee pot, and filters, but no coffee pouches? I just thought coffee was pretty standard for a room to have... anyway, the local store had coffee so it wasn't really an issue. I would suggest getting a second story room for the superior views, but all rooms have a view. We ate at the Windjammer in Pacific Beach and the food was good, with decent prices, you could really share any meal between 2 people and have plenty to eat. We also went up to Lake Quinalt Lodge one morning for breakfast. All in all, we enjoyed our 3 day trip, which is just about the right length...The bathroom was cramped and Robert couldn't stand up in the shower, the bed was too soft and would have caused back ache after a couple more days, But on the plus side, there were nice towels, plenty of "dog" towels, the sheets and bedding were very nice, we had two glider chairs to sit in and read, while looking out onto the surf and the beautiful sunset. The managers are very nice, the other folks staying there were friendly too. I know there are plans to build a new motel next door, so I'm pretty sure that's why they aren't putting any money into the current rooms. I would come again, but I definitely look forward to newer, more modern rooms in the new place.
