Speakeasy Inn Review

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 daily happy hour so you can fully appreciate all 223 brands of rum served. Accommodations have microwaves, kitchen sinks, bright-white walls offset 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 deck that's good for people-watching.
