After reading some reasonable reviews we decided to book. We arrived very late as there were mudslides and it took us 5 hours to get there from San Francisco. We arrived to find the bathroom vanity in the main bedroom. Bit strange but anyway. We wouldn't consider ourselves big people but the toilet space was very small. Shower was also...

I have stayed in four of the hotels within this main strip and always return to the Edgewater Beach Motel because of the great location and facilities. This trip I traveled with four teenagers(who can be hard to please), and were the first to point out the three comfortable queen beds, Jacuzzi bath tub and great location. As a parent,...

What a great little seaside getaway! Staff was friendly, professional, and very helpful when needed. The room was beautiful, very clean, and spacious, with very comfortable beds. Loved the ocean breeze at night! We had a full sized kitchen with all the cooking and dishes needed for cooking and eating in. A very short walking distance to the beach and...

“larger rooms with kitchenettes, would have liked to have the extra room for the two of us. We stayed in a single with a king bed.”
  • This was a small single room with a King bed. Nice decor! Clean!
  • Kind of hard to take a shower in this tub. Fun to have the fireplace in the bathroom.
