Rooms a remodeled!

I was so excited to get there and see all the remodeling they were doing to the rooms. They have me a really beautiful room with that was just remodeled and it was such an amazing stay. Close to the beach and near the Pramanad for shopping and outings, best part is everything is near our hotel that my girlfriend and I enjoyed a nice stay there to enjoy the best of Santa Monica. Again the rooms are amazing!! I will definitely come back!

Excellent location

The location of this hotel was excellent. Right next to the beach and the pier. We were not in the room much because of all the things to do. Walked to Malibu and back to Venice then to the 3rd street prominade. The best thing was that if we needed to put things in the room or grab something it did not waste any time at all. We would go back.

It was okay....

nothing spectacular about it but hey for the price and the location it wasn't bad. I don't know if I would stay there again but it wasn't horrible. Also the parking attendant is really SHADY. He tries to get extra parking money from you when you have already settled up with the hotel. Stay away from the parking attendant.

Excellent location with ocean and pier view.

This is an older hotel with limited amenities but has a very pleasant staff and very central location. The room and its bathroom were quite acceptable. We thought it was a good choice.

Be sure you dine at the JiRaffe Restaurant at Santa Monica and 5th. Unique food such as you have never had on your plate with the most marvelous flavors!

Good location

The hotel was clean and very well located, across from the Santa Monica Pier and beach, and just a couple of blocks from a nice shopping and dining area. The lobby of the hotel was spacious and the staff was friendly. The room was clean, with a comfortable desk at one end and a large bathroom at the other. Overall, the hotel felt cramped and oddly-shaped with zig-zag hallways and long, narrow rooms. The u-shape of the building meant most rooms looked into one another, and overlooked the parking area. No stairway access was available from the lobby to the rooms.

Ocean View is AWESOME

It was very nice. The only small problem I had was one lady at the front desk was not very patient. Other than that, I had a wonderful stay!

Good location

The location was perfect, but there was no pool or gym or anything else. You also had to pay to park your car even if you are staying there. $22 a night. The rooms were newly renovated, but you werent allowed to use the fridge. Rooms and balconys were small, but fine for only 2 people. We payed the extra for the ocean view thankfully, other rooms had views of the alley or another building next to us. overall, it was an okay experience, but i'm not sure it was really worth the money payed.
