    You have to walk down PCH a little bit to get to the pedestrian bridge or a signal down the opposite direction, south of the hotel, to cross over to the beach.

    I have a couple of questions regarding the hotel 1. We will have a minivan - can it fit in the parking spaces under the hotel? 2. We will be there in December - so we probably do not need it - but wanted to find out if there was air conditioning in the rooms? Thanks!
