This older nicely maintained motel has great ocean views and steep stair access to a rocky beach. Parking is free and it is within walking distance of downtown shopping, restaurants and museums. The ground floor is pet-friendly with a small lawn area and picnic tables (upper floor rooms have balconies), also a communal BBQ (without utensils). The kitchenette units have a small fridge, sink, all dishes and a two burner stovetop, no oven or microwave. Housekeeping staff is the best I've seen, the rooms are spotless; and you can expect a nice welcome from the front desk staff. During our stay the phone system was on the fritz and we were unable to make outgoing calls from the room phone, although they were gracious about letting us use the front desk phone. Grounds are nicely landscaped and we picked enough blackberries from the stairs to make dessert. The view is the big draw and a lot of guest just sit and look out at the ocean most of their stay - very peaceful feel to the place. We would definitely stay there again.
