Location, location, location....We have been staying at the OB Hotel for the past 10 years and enjoy each stay. The staff is available to respond to any request and the accomodations are perfect for being 20 steps from having your toes in the sand.We just stayed there last weekend and I can't wait to go back with our dogs.
