I've never stayed in Long Beach. Which hotel has the best view of the ocean? They all seem to be way back from the water. We often go to Lincoln City, OR where we stay a few feet from the beach. We do have other reasons that bring us to Long Beach, but in doing so, I'd still like to be as close to the beach as possible. Or, 2nd choice would be a hillside location with a vast ocean view, but my understanding is that there isn't such a thing there. Thank you.
