Palihouse Santa Monica

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

this is a nicely restored hotel in a great location. I just wish they had added soundproofing and gone for different carpet in the halls

This place is great. It is in an historic apartment building from the 1920's and it has a great feel to it.

Loved the atmosphere and decor, very friendly and accomodating staff. The only thing lacking for the price was no a/c, a standing shower for the classic room, and valet is not complimentary. The knob for the sink was sort of broken and the tiles on the floor of the shower needed some work.

Not sure why this is a three star...should be 4.5. Basically an renovated mansion turned into a B&B. My room was a fully furnished apartment ( living, Kitchen, dining, BR) with beautiful artwork and furniture. Huge door sized windows overlooked a beautiful front yard and garden. Free bicycles were also available. Two blocks from the beach, clubs, restaurants, and shopping. No liquor license at the time I stayed there FYI. HIGHLY RECOMMEND - VERY Romantic.

The hotel counter receptionist was very amiable and professional. They made us feel sincerely welcome and valued.

We loved everything except the parking for our car. We found it almost impossible to locate a parking spot close to the hotel. We received a $64 parking ticket the first day of our stay because we were told that we could park anywhere on the street with no penalties by using the tag they gave us open arrival.
