Great room, good location

The staff was very friendly and the room looked very clean each day. The lights on each side of the bed stopped working, but other than that it was a great stay.

Best Western Gateway Hotel Santa Monica

No problems at check-in/out. Staff were very courteous. Can't beat the free parking. Room was very clean, towels were soft. There was a slight musty smell in the room, but given the relative humidity from being next to the coast, it wasn't really surprising. Something they don't mention: the room had a refrigerator, which was a nice surprise.

Nothing really stood out ...

Nothing really stood out atbthis hotel. Since the hotel was renovated recently. It took us a while to locate it because of that fact. Its also not really walking distance to the Santa Monica pier (unless you're up for a 20 block walk). They did, however, provide a free shuttle ride to the beach and shopping areas.

Boys Road Trip

The hotel was comfortable and ok location, although a cab is needed to reach Santa Monica front. We had issues with our room keys on check in which involved us going back and forward from reception 3 times!!! Apart from that great value hotel.

comfortable stay

Friendly, carefree getaway. Convenient parking, public transit steps from front door and plenty of yummy places to eat several blocks away. Enjoyed the Bagels Nosh on 17th/Wilshire for a complete, affordable, leisurely way to start the day. My brother a newly legally blind person was able to navigate the area with white stick quite safely. The surrounding residential afraid lovely.

An okay place to sleep and not much more

An ordinary motel, with no special amenities or comfort.
