Apparently they changed management about 3 months ago, but the new managers are great too! I was there over New Year's 2011 and they were fixing up one room. I get the feeling the whole place is getting an overhaul. Everything was scrupulously clean and the linens were really nice. I had booked for 2 nights but had to leave after one, and they were as helpful and understanding as could be. The rooms are actually attached cabins, each with a mini-kitchen; it would be a great place for a family. The kids could even have their own room with parents next door keeping an eye on things from afar. The location can't be beat - it was an easy 1/2 mile walk or 2 minute drive to the beach, and there was actually a choice of 2 beaches. The state park, which is free and accessible from the road, is a beautiful and very clean bay with a wide expanse of black (lava) sand. Walk in the other direction and there's a gorgeous beach where, for some reason, driftwood and washed-up stones collect. I found 5 kinds of agate in 5 minutes. The Ocean Ave. Inn is about 2 miles from the Westport "strip" - easy to drive to, but far enough away not to be bothersome. If you prefer to stay near base, there's a good Mexican restaurant across the road and a grocery 2 blocks away. I will be back!
