You cannot get a better location for walking to Santa Monica Pier and lots of great restaurants. But the hotel is very old and had a moldy smell. Blankets were from the sixties. Outlets were old and had trouble supporting phone charger. Difficult location to...More
This is a very basic hotel in need of redecoration, but our room was clean and comfortable and we spent very little time in it. There was a lot of noise from the air con/power system outside but it didn’t really keep us awake so...More

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
