This is an older motel, but it was clean and fun. There was a beautiful mural painted on the wall. Breakfast was included. You could hear the ocean when you were right outside the door; it was just a short walk to the beach.

This motel is a single floor, no inside corridors. We felt very safe there. We walked a few blocks to a water front restaurant day & night with no concerns. Large hotel chain right across the street, so lots of people around.
