          Loved waking up and opening the curtains to watch the ocean, and rain on a wonderful anniversary weekend. Very accommodating with parking, clean and great location. Located close to all places to eat and enjoy the area.

          We are staying here two nights next month on a road trip through California. I booked a queen room with a full ocean view, I was not sure which room to book... Also it says that there are bbq grills? Are these charcoal and is there a grocery store near by? Some reviews say there are coffee pots and fridges in the room and some say there are not, Does anyone know? And last but not least, is there anything around the area that I should go see other than the beautiful views of the mountains and beaches from the room! Thank you!
