Fodor's Expert Review Cardiff by the Sea Lodge

142 Chesterfield Ave., Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California, 92007, USA

Opened in 1990, this quirky hotel oozes with character from its rooftop garden complete with fire pits and Jacuzzi to its uniquely themed rooms that range from Hawaiian paradise to French country. Considering the location is just feet from the beach, this place is a bargain. Rates include Wi-Fi, breakfast, beach amenities, and s'mores served on the rooftop terrace. Six of the rooms have ocean views, and the Sweetheart Suite—with a heart-shaped tub and ornate ceiling—is a mix of kitsch and romance.
