The hotel is perfectly located for the pier, restaurants and shops. The views from our room were lovely, we were 4 floors up and centred right in the middle - we could see the pier and the sea. The staff were very attentive and friendly - always welcoming you when you were entering or exiting the hotel. The communal areas...

Just finished a third stay. Solid 4 star choice in Santa Monica. Great location. Across from the pier and walkable to everything. I think they mostly succeed at what they are trying to be - casual beach house sort of vibe. Website photos accurate. Be careful with the partial ocean view rooms, some face the HVAC of the adjacent building...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
