Good location, Good value

Nice place, well maintained. Convenient location for Santa Monica. 1.5 miles to pier, beach and easy to get around LA. Parking included, next to IHOP, has small fitness room. Great value for the area.

Plenty of public parking near the 3rd st. Promenade, if you stay here and head there. Only a mile to walk or drive.

What I needed, but nothing special

The hotel and room was clean, and the staff decently friendly. The room was really cramped and the bathroom claustrophobic. I got two queen beds, but I feel like that there should have only been one queen or two single beds. While having a free continental breakfast would have been nice, especially for the price I paid for two nights, there was at least an iHop attached to the hotel where I could grab a quick bite before going on my way.

Comfortable and Clean

This is a good place to stay if you'll be traveling into LA. Close to the Santa Monica Pier as well.

It Works

Average hotel located about 2 miles from the Santa Monica Pier. Friendly staff with clean rooms. In room safe and small refridgerator. No shuttle available to pier during our stay. They suggest using public transportation.

Not a Santa Monica Experience

Really nice people at the front desk and working the building. But you are 20 blocks from the beach and to drive and park by the beach it is at least $12 per day. I would find a place closer to the beach and shopping for a little more and enjoy the real Santa Monica. The closest restaurant is an Ihop.

An okay place to sleep and not much more

An ordinary motel, with no special amenities or comfort.
