Fodor's Review

Location is the main appeal of this motel atop a waterfront bluff. All rooms have an ocean view and a vague mountains-meet-the-seaside look, and the boardwalk is just down the street. Standard rooms have a fireplace and a refrigerator, and there are three luxury king spa rooms with balconies and two family cottages with private hot tubs. Studios and suites have kitchenettes, and three rooms have whirlpool tubs.
