We stayed here for five nights with a Road Scholar tour. The hotel is the tallest building in town having been grandfathered in before an ordinance forbid anything above 3 stories. It sits on the beach with all rooms having a view of the beach. Each room has a balcony with chairs to sit and look at the ocean, but I'm not sure it is ever warm enough to do that. The week we were there the high temperature hovered about 70 (August). Morning marine layer added to the cold. Still there were surfers our every morning. Don't know if the air conditioning worked, we never used it.
The room was pleasant with the only complaint being that the bath was small and all in one room with a single sink making for morning and evening congestion. Staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
Noise level from nearby rte 101 and the railroad is a problem if you want to leave the window open. You will not hear the surf. With the window closed, only the occasional train whistle was a problem.
