Don't come for the breakfast or the toiletries, but this is the place if you want to pay less than the competition for a beachfront stay and no two-night minimum. It had character but a few missing pieces, such as the toilet paper holder in the bathroom (really?) and the overhead light in the room. There was one slim bottle of shampoo and a bar of soap that felt like sandpaper. Breakfast was donuts and coffee. However, I was there on Summer Solstice Parade weekend and everything was packed -- all the other hotels charged $50 to $100+ more and required two nights. The service was pleasant and the location was fine. Be aware it's next to the Veteran's Memorial Hall so could have added activity if there is an event -- we had a wedding during our visit but they went home by 10:30 p.m. All in all, for the price + location + cheerful service, I would stay again.
