The hotel was built in 1963 (not sure of the architect, although someone at the site confirmed that they still have the original blueprints). There were some updates in 1983, including the addition of a wing that now blocks the marina view from the pool area. Among other changes, the dining room onc...

For Sale

There are now 'For Sale' signs up on the Long Beach dealership. It would be such a shame for a developer to buy the property as a tear down. Anyone have several million dollars and a use for this building?
