This older hotel still is my favorite place to stay in town, as many of the rooms open up just steps from the beach. You can crack your window or patio door open at night and listen to the roaring waves as you fall asleep. The rooms with patios are ideal for feeding the rather brave seagulls who swoop down for snacks.
A number of the rooms are actually suites with kitchen areas and a dining table. I never prepare meals, however, as the restaurant located in the hotel complex, Mo's, is one of the best in the area. There is also a heated swimming pool and game area for the kids.
