I am wondering about safe, reasonably priced places to stay within walking distance (four or five blocks) of Captain Hooks? Hotels, motels, condos??? Also, are there restaurants within walking distance, and/or at least one decent grocery store? I'm aiming to visit in January or February, but I would rather not have to drive or worry about parking if it can be helped.
