    Is my interpretation correct?

    The hotel is located in California, making it a wonderful place for seagoers.
    Is this the same as "The hotel is located in California, which makes it a wonderful place for seagoers."?

    It means the same but it's a rather strange sentence. California is a very large state and quite a lot of it would not be remotely wonderful for seagoers! Talking of which, seagoers is rather a strange word - do you mean people who like travelling by boat?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "The hotel being located in California makes it a wonderful place for seagoers."
    Does it work?

    It's grammatical.

    So is my rewriting grammatical in the original post?

    Re: Is my interpretation correct?

    What is the source of your quotation, James?

    If it is your own sentence, you need to say 'sea lovers', but sea lovers booking into the hotel and discovering it was in Susanville, CA, 306 miles from the sea, would find it less than wonderful.
