First, if you are the Four Seasons type, this won't be your cup of tea. If, however, you are more interested in location, value, and cleanliness, you will be pleased.
The Atwater is just a short walk to the beach, and an even shorter walk to the timeless pizza joint across the street (delicious pizza by the slice!). Similarly, you will be close to all attractions, the pleasure pier, bars, and restaurants.
Of course, this is an older property (1920's vintage). You will have stairs to climb, but you can consider this the hotel's "workout facility". Be sure to pay a little extra for a room with air conditioning -- it is worth it!
Expect to pay LESS than half of what the "fancy-schmancy" places in town get. Use the savings for a nice dinner and an extra tour! The staff is quite friendly and helpful too.
All-in-all, Hotel Atwater is an exceptional value.
