As I approached the office, a man was smoking a cigarette and would not move aside. There were two people sitting in the common area drinking 40’s. The room smelled like cigarette smoke, the walls were dirty and plaster cracked, the curtains had black filth on them, and the paint was chipped off the doors. The size of the room was tiny- about 18 inches on either side of the bed. I immediately checked out and the staff refused to give me a refund.

Had roaches & what looked like dog hair all over the "clean sheets"

Bugs everywhere. Disgusting room. The toilet was covered in filth and hair on the toilet seat. Bathroom door didn’t shut. Stained covers and dirt all over bed. Lucky if I didn’t catch a disease.

all very dirty, hair everywhere. insects, dust and mildew on the window and bathroom curtains, the bed sheets were not changed, the old towels with holes, grimy, the pillows a disgusting, really all very bad,how could you stay in such a place? and they didn't repay me. Everything very bad.

The unit was gross tye bedding was old and smeld the walls and floors were dirty over all the place was disgusting I wouldn't recomend this place to anyone I stayed one night on top of the covers and paid to stay aomewhere else the 2nd night I'm very disappointed that orbitz would even have this kind of place on there site I think for my next trip I'll use a different site

This place was a dump. There was no deadbolt on the door and vagrants hanging around I didn’t feel safe being there so I did not stay there. I immodestly left the property and found another place to stay.

The motel has been the worst we have ever booked on Orbitz. It doesnt deserve a star.

a flee bag hotel with East Indians who are the worst house keeper in the world pretending to run a hotel

The mattress didn't have any bed bugs, but that was the only redeeming quality. I paid way too much/night and the hotel was by far the seediest I have ever stayed in, should be about cheapest out there/night. Paint peeling off the walls and doors, I could see through the bathroom wall into the parking lot, etc etc. Honestly it wasn't too bad, but at the end when I was trying to check out, I was putting some stuff in my car and the manager chased me down in the parking lot for his tv remote and key... I wasn't leaving yet. I guess they have issues with people stealing their cheap 1980's style remotes or something. The stay was alright, but that last thing just crossed the line for me and provoked me to write this lovely review.

This hotel was a mistake to stay there. It had mold, outlets did not work. walls fallingapart.

This place was a one room bug infested dump. The pictures must have been photo chopped.

Worst motel I've ever been in. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place. Not clean. Insects.

It's definitely the cheapest hotel that you can find near Santa Monica it's absolutely run down the handles are broken on the door to the closet there was no plugs absolutely no plugs except the one that plug the heater in the remote control only work for the channels the power button didn't work the volume button didn't work the bed was Old hard old room smell but then again most of the buildings there have that smell if you literally just need somewhere to sleep for the night it's a decent place to go to for the price you won't find anything else that cheap there but not somewhere where you can get ready or anything like that due to no blow dryer no plugs to use a blow dryer if you bring one or a flat iron I did like that the parking up front was available it's a very small hotel so I was able to park right in front of the office and my room is right across from office it was the second door down

Manager was stoned and did not open door when I asked for key. Locks on room door and windows seemed flimsy and easily opened. Small crowd of men (6 or 7) hanging around back corner of building. As a woman alone, I did not feel safe.

Before you read, do keep in mind thay we're really not picky when it comes to hotels. We don't spend time in the room during the day when we travel. If it's in a good location, and if it's better than sleeping in the car, it's good enough for us:) The location/price ratio for this place can't be beat. You simply can't get anything for this price in Santa Monica. Big Blue Bus stops a block away, so if you want to go to the beach, you can do so without driving in crazy LA traffic. The room... What can I tell you. It's small, and pretty shabby. The furniture looks like it was found on the side of the road. The TV was probably made in the 90's. The paint needs refreshing. The towels are threadbare. You get a tiny sliver of soap. The bathroom fixtures could use an overhaul. But the important things were there: the sheets and towels were clean. There were no bedbugs. The AC worked. The room did not smell. The shower worked. The toilet flushed. Nothing dripped or leaked. We did see one roach, but this is an old building in LA, so they're not that uncommon. The fact that there was only one doesn't suggest an infestation to me. The neighbourhood is fantastic -- a great park nearby. A strip mall with Starbucks and Subway and a froyo place. We'll stay there again provided the prices don't go up.

In santa monica area, just one night is ok. It is near santa monica beach, so it worth the money

I love this motel. EXCELLENT LOCATION TO THE BEACH! (5 minutes)And also great location to downtown Los angeles(15 minutes) Quiet little motel. Great value. This will definitely be where I stay when I am in Santa Monica. Highly recommend if you want affordable beach motel.

We stayed 2 nights, enjoyed it so much, that we wanted to stay 2 more nights, but could only stay for one more. Great time! Definitely will go back!

I was shocked how bad this place is...actually nice location however this little piece of low life was hidden...I had to see it to believe it. Right next to Santa Monica Community College a hop skip and half a jump from the beach and all the upscale shops of Santa Monica...I am still in disbelief. To give it one star is a step up!
