      very good location

      The bed occupied 70% of the room. No air condition but ceiling fan. Very simple furniture.

      Great location across from park and beach. Easy access to board walk and pier. 10-15 min walk to promenade and Santa Monica Plaza for great food & shopping. Located in quiet neighborhood and close to local eateries. No frills but beds are nice and rooms are clean.

      Front exterior of hotel is under renovation and construction is noisy during business hours. Did not get room I had reserved the first night and was not told up front. I noticed they had given a me a Queen building view instead of a King Garden View when signing check-in docs. Parking is limited, but free if you get a spot. Manager moved us to our promised room & got us a parking space the next day. Bathrooms need renovating. No toiletries and shower gel dispensers did not work in either room.

      The view

      We viewed a little T.V while we stayed and in the pictures it shows a nice big t.v but the room only had a small tube t.v that had a horrible picture

      Handy hotel right on the beach and easy walk to shopping and the pier. Bed was nice and comfy, essentially a basic hotel but for the price, it really had everything we needed. Decent sized bathroom and King Size bed was comfy. Spacious room and good cheap mini bar.

      Comfortable bed

      Could hear the person up stairs walking around as the floor creaked

      The location is excellent, and the rooms are adequate, although there is no air con which made the room hot. The ceiling fan is not enough during hot weather. bathroom ws ok although our shower did not operate at full power due to a faulty tap switch. The exterior is looking a bit tired and overall I would say that if they don't invest some money on the place it will not be long before it looks real shabby. A small investment now would do wonders for it ie: air conditioning, a lick of paint and fix the minor problems in the rooms. The location is superb and good enough if you are just passing through especially in the winter months.

      The lack of air-con was the biggest miss, and would certainly stop me from staying there during the summer - it would be too hot to bear.

      It has a good location to beach and Santa Monica. Fairly comfortable room, nice shower.

      Staff were disinterested or too busy. Overpriced but going rate.

      Free wifi is perfect. Bottle of water is ok, cleaning is cool, beds are very nice. Cheap car parking is good too.

      Too small room, no bath and very thin walls - you can hear everyting happen in closest rooms.

      very close to the beach and shopping and eating. No need for a car rental, could walk or take a quick bus. Very basic simple hotel clean.

      It is a great location and the recent remodeling is very tasteful. The beds are a huge upgrade and very, very comfortable. The new landscaping was very attractive.

      There was a birthday party going on next door to (room 204) on the evening of November 13th and the hotel staff didn't seem to do anything to get them to quiet down. The party and loud voices were outside our room.

      Great location for the beach in Santa Monica, literally across the road and down to the carpark. The other hotels nearer Santa Monica Boulevard are not as good for access to the beach due to the Pacific Coast Highway. Ideal for Surfers, lessons every day on the beach only about 100m away. Hotel felt safe and staff were great and very helpful, some of the room fittings are not brand new but it has been nicely renovated recently. Would stay here again.

      No breakfast facilities, but would be difficult to arrange as there is not a suitable area for guests. Plenty of cafes nearby though.

      The location was excellent for my purposes. I could walk easily to all the places I needed to be. And being so close to teh beach is a real plus.
