Corona Del Mar is an excellent apartment hotel on the beach within walking distance of everything. They have recently completely renovated the entire place and added several new rooms. Helen and Woody are great hosts and after living there for 25 years, Woody can be very informative about most everything. I and many of my friends have stayed there many times and enjoyed it every time. The only complaint people seem to have is the close proximity of the current barge landing. However, that never bothered any of us.
