My husband and I booked this room for a weekend getaway (just happened that it was also Valentine's Day weekend, so the prices were a bit higher).

If you want a room, right on the sidewalk across from the beach, with a balcony (albeit small), two chairs and a small table, where you can hear the waves, this place is great. When we arrived the room smelled a bit musty, we opened up the door to the balcony to let some air flow through then called the... More

No complaints about the accommodations here. This place is right on the beach, which is fantastic, and it's also really close to lots of bars and restaurants (though not so close that it's obnoxious). You're also straddling Pacific and Mission Beaches, so you can experience either one easily on foot. The room was very comfortably sized (especially just for me!),... More
