Luxury place I guess. Seems kind of soulless, though I understand the spa is nice to sneak into.

Seems like the place I’d like to stay of all the places nearby. But I live in a shitty little surfer crash pad.

Old school motel along Ocean Ave. Not much to look at from the outside, but close to everything, including the Rand Corporation.

Someone needs to get this place a shorter name. Shmancy place on Ocean.
From $310.00

I know an actor who, despite being out of work, would go for a run, finish at Shutters and swagger in sweaty, only to have attendants offer him a towel and bottled water. Good actor or good hotel?

At $420 a night Casa Del Mar is a tad rich for my blood—I’ve never been up to one of the rooms (though I’ll wager plenty of people who work the posh bar/restaurant have).

Hostel California on 013 2008

A former winery, one assumes the hostel to be cheap of friendly (’cause it sure ain’t much to look at). Young travelers do hang out lounging in the sun out back by the rental bikes, playing guitar and writing post cards.

Doesn’t look like much from the outside. On the other hand, hanging out inside a Holiday Inn for anything other than sleep while in SoCal doesn’t make a lot of sense.
