Heat was not working. Hot water was lukewarm. We arrived late and it took a while to get someone to let us register

complaint was reported to Orbitz and result was a $25 credit from Orbitz that is essentially useless. Good way to lose a long-time customer.

Wonderful place-Very clean and comfortable motel easy walking to local attractions

As directed, we called ahead to advise we would need a late check in due to traffic related delays. Hotel told us they would leave room unlocked. When we arrived, we discovered the room was occupied and they had rented it to someone else. They finally found us a room-which had no hangers in the closet and a persistent musty smell. Avoid.

Staff was great. Place was cute and it felt like a typical American family vacation. No air is a bummer. I would not have reserved this place had I realized that. I was thankful that Santa zmonics was only in the 70’s while we were there since there was no air, I would consider this place again as long as it is not overly hot.

I liked that it was quiet, and friendly people stay there; almost family oriented. Loved the location, safe and close to where I needed to be each day. It was so unique, and not luxurious - which is wasted on me. So not necessary. And we had all that was necessary, plus the ambiance. And so the price was right as well. I'll stay again next year for sure. Nice manager too!

It was a nice little place and the guy was so nice even suggested some place to go look at. It was a nice quiet place the only think was the wifi wasn’t strong but other then that I really like it.

Close to everything we wanted to see walking distance

It felt like a little village escape inside Santa Monica. It was quaint, cozy and other worldly. We will definitely be staying here again.

The owner and management were very welcoming. Made sure to speak to us every day asking how everything was and making sure we were happy with our stay.

Nice hotel very cozy and close to the beach will stay there again

It’s a decent place, but it needs manteinance. I stayed at room 228. And pair is pelee get off at ceiling in the bedroom. Otherwise its a nice place.

Nice place for a few nights. Easy check in and easy check out.

A motel with a truly split personality: the exterior and grounds have a certain quaint charm with appreciated decorative quirks such as surfboards and various country flags painted throughout. The front desk attendant could not have been friendlier and personable - far more professional than one usually gets from these extreme budget places. And the other guests roaming about look like young creatives in town for work or normal families on a road trip. When I pulled in I thought I discovered a hidden secret. And then, the room - well, I can now say I know what a welfare hotel feels like, (albeit a clean one.) Blinding overhead lighting, no table lamps, walls thick with globs of paint jobs past and a mattress that must have been prison cot overstock. (No exaggeration- it was that hard and uncomfortable. And I can sleep on anything.) The room actually depressed me and made me anxious to leave, which fortunately I was able to first thing the next morning. It's too bad because with a little money and care spent, the rooms could be at least decent. But as is, I would only recommend this place if you are on an extremely tight budget and don't plan to spend anytime in the room. Even then, I'd urge you to save up a few more dollars and stay somewhere else.

Very quaint. Close to beach. Friendly staff. Little sitting areas outside rooms. Enjoyed it!
