Editorial review:

This Santa Monica location is next to the beach. To get the best experience of the views of the Pacific, make sure you book an oceanfront room. The staff is helpful and you, and the rooms are nicely decorated but not unique. Venice Beach is close, and this offering is a great alternative to staying at the more expensive hotels at that location.

                    The location of the hotel with direct views of the ocean and the pier from the pool and restaurant were fantastic.

                    Being 'upgraded' to another room on arrival but we ended up with a balcony over looking a busy lane way and other peoples backyards.

                    The staff was excellent, they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was wonderful. Very helpful with directions and getting things for me that I had forgotten in my car.

                    Only downfall was the room itself, it was very small, not as luxurious as the rest of the hotel. Our room faced a brick wall so that wasn't pleasant. I don't know that I would stay here again just for that reason. The price I paid was not at all what I expected for the room.

                    Well run, great location, comfortable rooms, nice pool and jacuzzi, lovely outdoor seating for drinks/food with fire pits.

                    Having to pay to use the locker room/sauna/steam area. Breakfast buffet too expensive at $29.

                    The only good thing is their location.

                    The price is high and the room is small.The view is bad if you are not facing the ocean.

                    I would say that the incredible staff makes all the difference. The location was perfect for me - location, the beach, shopping, relaxing.

                    My initial room was noisy - but the staff were pleasant and helpful in getting a better room.

                    The Lowes Santa Monica is very pet friendly and treated my English Bulldog like a king. Would highly recommend this hotel to any pet lover.

                    Your concierge staff, bar - the people who make the hotel tick were brilliant. Checking out was no worse than any other hotel. One guy seemed to be completely all at sea. The general feeling of the hotel was top class though. I will be back again and will recommend it to others.

                    This hotel is absolutely beautiful. The pool area is very nice overlooking the Pier and the beach. Nice fireplace sittings all over for cooler nights. When we first checked in we were not happy with the location of hour room. When asked to be moved there was no hesitation. Very friendly staff everywhere on the property. We were a little surprised at the some of the addtional costs, parking was more per night than we expected and we had to pay to work out in the fitness center. That really surprised us !! We ate out at various restaurants in the area and realized that the entire area is expensive. So if your looking for a cheap holiday, its not here, but you definately enjoy the stay !!!!

                    The beach and close proximity to the Promenade.

                    There were never enough waiters or servers in the bar lounge where they served food nor in the restaurant, Ocean and Vine. Waited twenty minutes for server in the lounge so went to the bar myself to get drinks. Waited ten minutes for waiter,at Ocean and Vine, who was at another table and didn't acknowledge us, nor did he ever check back with us about how we were doing and how we liked our meals. Management should have had twice the number of staff working in this restaurant.

                    The pool has excellent views of the beach and a lovely atmosphere to chill out and watch the sun set. The chairs around the fire pit tables at night were lovely. Fantastic location for the beach, pier and shopping area of Santat Monica. Also a really good happy hour menu from 5 till 8pm every night

                    For the price the room we stayed in wasnt as nice as we'd expect, the beds were very small and it was a little bit shabby, very small bathroom also but overall a nice, relaxed hotel experience, we would go back.
