This was an affordable option with enough beds for a family with teens. Short walk to the pier, beach, and shops / restaurants. Staff were helpful and friendly. You can hear the adjoining room conversations and street noise - but the location is the main...More

This hotel was very unscrupulous! The rate I was charged from my Expedia reservation for a cancellable room was double the amount being advertised the day I checked in. I was charged $435 for a super crappy room with old, uncomfortable mattresses (gross) I asked...More

It’s a motel that is overpriced because of its location. The beach, pier and restaurants are all at walking distance. Staff is few and far between and none available after evening. They “technically “ have an ocean view but the only view you get is...More

Neighbourhood
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.
