During Prohibition, Raul Vasquez made this place popular by smuggling in rum from Cuba; today its reputation is for having reasonably priced rooms within walking distance of the beach. Of course, the booze is legal now, and there's a bar in the lobby offering 240 brands of rum. Accommodations have microwaves, kitchen sinks, pastel-painted walls accented by bursts of color in rugs, pillows, and seat cushions. The rooms are basic, but some have nice touches like claw-foot
tubs. Room 1A has a balcony that's good for people-watching.
