COCKROACHES! Many in room 205. Only one in 202 , the room they moved us to.

Great place 2 blocks from Palisades Park.

Big and spacious. Very nice

When I arrived they upgraded me to a beautiful room which was basically an apartment.

Close to the beach great location nice pool. Helpful staff.

We loved the Cal Mar. Very convenient location, a friendly and helpful staff and the room was totally spotless when we arrived. I reserved a crib and it was in the room when we got there. The heated pool was very nice. Kid-friendly for sure... I stayed with a 10-month old and a 4 year old. Rooms are old-school but unique and large! I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone.

Spectacular location, room had a whole kitchen and living room! This hotels a classic, I dont think theyve change it in 50 years, right near the Santa Monica beach. Good bang for your buck.

Great location. Location location. Did I mention the location? Excellent! Humble rooms, and kinda vintage in some ways, but great space and we were almost never there so, perfect. NOT a place for a honeymoon type stay. Spot on for affordable beach access and almost ideal Santa Monica placement. You'll pay extra for parking on-site, which you'll need, and wifi, which is typical. Very nice staff.

Close to the beach and also close to UCLA Hospital where I was in for a few days for knee replacement surgery. Safe, good restaurants and shopping close by.

Everything was very nice, staff, facility and location

Very good. Friendly staff. Quiet and comfortable.

Prime location to the beach and attractions. Facilities are very old ,but kept fairly clean. Charge $34 a day for parking .
