Internet was useless. Location was great Staff was friendly and knowledgeable

The location was great. It was close to the Santa Monica pier, the beach, tons of restaurants and shopping. The hotel was clean with modern upgrades.

Stains on the carpet, bed, and. Pillows. Especially on the blue pillow.

Easy access to the Beach was great, but the water from the bathroom smelled horrible, And the front desk staff was not that friendly or informative.

We loved the location of the property. We disliked that the property did not have a pool, workout facility on site, the court yard balcony view was of the parking lot, the shower temperature was bipolar turning hot to cold on its own, and the police were called when we turned our music on and it was before 9pm.

Decent hotel for a decent price. 2nd stay here and it is convenient and easy.

THE WHOLE STAFF was friendly. Extremely welcoming. Even the maids were nice. The location IS EVERYTHING and this HOTEL is in the GOLDIE LOX ZONE. Not only A Panoramic ocean view. But also the beautiful lights of SANTA MONICA PIER SHINE LIKE TIME SQUARE

This hotel was nice but not for the price. Their courtyard view is a view of the parking lot, and the ocean view is very nice but there is a busy road right below you, so it gets loud. Also you have to pay $38.50 for parking, which i think is ridiculous for how much you pay per night for that hotel.

Clean hotel located across from the Santa Monica pier. However unless you have a room with a view there is no view. Our room looked at a courtyard over the driveway. the hotel is kind of pricey for no view at all. However, taking that into consideration, you are paying for the location. No fitness center. You get a pass to 24 hour fitness nearby.

Absolutely perfect location. Hotel staff was fabulous!

Had a bad experience with check in. They wrote down a nonexistant room number for us and it took a very long time to fix. Our tv did not work. The shower was strange. It only opened from the opposite side of the faucet so it was very cold. Elevators were broken so we had to use stairwell which let to an alley full of garbage and urine.

Beds and pillows offer no support. I’m sore from having slept in them for 4 nights. Also the no breakfast or room service is pretty inconvenient. For the price I won’t be returning.

This was a decent motel but nothing out of the ordinary. Paid over $300.00 Per night through orbitz. Total of over $700.00 for two nites to orbitz. Then to our surprise $38.95 per night to park, $11.00 per nite for location fee. Over 100.00 more to the hotel. No vending machines or breakfast. Drinks and snacks in the room, $4.00 for a 12 ounce coke. The ocean view was across the 4 lane road and walking a.day sitting area before the beach. Yes we could see the beach but all we could hear was cars passing by. Needless to stay we were very disappointed Ted and will not stay here again.

This ocean view room was nice. The balcony was tiny, but private, and a nice place to just hang out and people-watch. If you want a good sunset view, however, this isn't the place. The sun set behind the mountain, and behind some palm trees blocking our view. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed and bedding was very nice. The pillows were great! The wifi was ok. The staff was very pleasant. It does cost significantly to park at the hotel, so be aware. The location is excellent, walking distance to pier and promenade.

We enjoyed out time at Ocean View. There was not a pool as indicated by the photos associated with this hotel, but that did not deter our fun. The majority of the staff was accommodating with the exception of Carlos. He did not seem to care at all to check us in even though we paid for the room in advance. He treated us like we were a bother. I did not feel welcome. The hotel was great as far as location and general cleanliness, but I would not return and pay what we paid to be greeted in that way again. Hospitality has a meaning and it was not demonstrated in this hotel.

Great location, hotel is updated and very nice. Staff was helpful and professional. We had a great time.

Great location. Room decore is modern and clean. Comfortable and I imagine adding the ocean view which we did not have would be very nice.

The hotel is in a great location. Walking distance (few blocks) to the pier and promenade. If you go out of Santa Monica, easy and affordable uber ride. Hotel seems to be newly updated. Clean and staff is friendly. Would definitely recommend.

The hotel has an ideal location very close to beach, pier and promenade. Room was comfortable but not too fancy

Starting with the location and the ocean view, this place is great.
