Good value for money hotel.

Hotel was in great position in Santa Monica. Near pier, 3rd St Promenade, Broadway shopping mall, etc. Nothing fancy but ticked all the necessary boxes... Staff friendly and helpful, room clean and comfortable. View not great though... Looked out over concrete area where cars parked. I was told it looked out over a courtyard and thought it would have been a bit prettier than what it was. All up though it was good value for money in an area that can be rather expensive for accommodation usually.

Only location.

Good location but... Our room was above restaurant/bar and they played music to 3am so loud that i could singalong. Hairdryer was missing, socket was broken and one towel missing. Hotel needs renovation and fast.

Basic, clean and location, location

Pleasant breezy hotel with lots of parking, currently. $20 overnight. Think my room card got zapped before check-out so a friendly staff member let me in. Ocean view rooms probably better for street noise on the upper levels, we were just above street level, which is fun if you like to people watch. The hotel is centered between the Pier and Wilshire Blvd. Most of Santa Monica shopping and restaurants are in walking distance. Our kids enjoyed the balcony and the grassy park areas above the beach. The beach is long and down some stairs and there's a handy foot bridge arching over PCH here. The hotel recommended a child friendly restaurant. Negatives were small beds and narrow hallways. And spotty wifi; in fact I could not get internet service Friday night. But the rooms didn't feel cramped at all, and often felt roomy.

3 nights in Santa Monica

although it was a local and not a name-brand hotel it was located in a great neighborhood to make walking to destinations perfect and safe easy to get to, right near the freeway, but on local street

Bad Bad!

The view was awful, i requested the view to look at the ocean, instead i got a view street with the noisy honking cars. The parking is awful and they charge extra. They asked me to move the garbage can in order to park my car. The room wasn't clean. I would not recommend this hotel.

Trip to Santa Monica

Excellent location, across the street from the ocean and the pier. The rooms are small, no special amenities, and no breakfast at the location.

Disappointing hotel on amazing location

I had high hopes and expectations for this hotel but was very disappointed. The rooms were far below average. The room doesn't even have a fridge. You would think the hotel would at least invest in a refrigerator so that their guests can have a cold drink after they spend hours out on the beach in the sun. They also have awful Internet connection. It's wifi network is extremely spotty. The connections are also unsecured so anyone on the street can connect to it and potentially steal your information. Finally, don't let the name of the hotel fool you. Only a limited number of rooms have actual ocean view and it's not even that great because the building is only four stories high.

Average hotel in a perfect location

Overall this hotel was exactly what we were looking for. Santa Monica is more expensive than some of the other beaches but it's a fabulous town, and it was great to be able to stay there. The hotel is clean, friendly staff, no complaints at all to mention. Tiny bit dated but you're right next to the beach and pier with great shops and bars on your doorstep.
