room parking facilty
The use of carage was free.
Clean and efficient
Chose this hotel as it offered free underground parking as most others charge. Stayed here six years ago & the hotel has undergone recent upgrades. Beds are comfortable, there's a fridge & safe in room. My teenage son used the free gym. The iHop next door is handy for breakfast.
Could have done with a pool after a day out. Bin men / deliveries early morning are noisiest I've heard!
Location was very good and staff were very helpful.
The room was stuffy-AC didn't work that well and it had a musty odor. Should be checked for mold.
Hard floors instead of carpet. Comfy beds
Air conditioning seemed to work but only grudgingly.
Very pretty rooms. Very clean.
Walls are paper thin, no rubber under the door to block noise from outside. Could hear any time somebody was walking upstairs and below you. Not very peaceful night sleep with lots of noise from other rooms.
The room was very nice
Only having two towels in the bathroom for four guests.
Good location for public transport. WiFi available in the room was a bonus.
Close to LA and great hub to travel from for day trips with out paying high LA/ Hollywood prices.
nothing we didn't like
wifi get cut off when i m back at the hotel
The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The price is right and the location is great. AAA+++
IHOP restaurant. Location
clean close to hospital
loud music next door room smelled like smoke
Seems to have been recently renovated. (First floor is still under renovation.) Excellent amenities. Spacious room and comfortable bed. About a mile to Third Street Promenade and beach. Nice to have the IHOP right by the hotel.
A bit pricey. But given the location, can't really complain much.
Renovations to the hotel were partially completed (2 of 4 floors), but work was not disruptive to our stay. We were the first people to stay in the new room and it was extremely pleasant. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. We've stayed at this hotel before the renovations and we'll definitely be back!
Beautiful renovations. Stayed last two years and loved the updates. Free wi fi is a good ammenity.
Wish there was a coffee and water station in lobby.
Location is great to us since it's cross street to where we want to go. For general tourist, it's 5 mins drive from the beach and 3rd street shopping area.
AC in room is loud. Staff is kind of cold, not really saying much. They didn't mention any coupon for eating at IHOP as other comments mentioned. The room is a bit small.
We had a quiet room. Restaurant next door was ok.
Way to far from Santa Monica Beach for our liking. The hotel is in need of updating. The carpet was dirty and worn and the mattress old and lumpy. The lighting in the room was poor. Thought it was very overpriced for what we got.
Old, run down hotel; Rooms in need of renovation/rejuvenation; Too expensive. High room rate definitely not justified. As there are not that many hotels in the Santa Monica area, especially those not too far away from the Pier, beach and 3rd street promenade, this hotel can probably charge whatever they want since they know that people will pay and stay anyway which we did too
Very comfortable room and appreciated the pretty toiletries. Good location but a quieter area. Very easy to get to the beach + hub of the area but without the noise you usually get being right in the centre. The hotel shuttle was a real bonus. Loved handy IHOP restaurant next door - such tasty meals and reasonably priced
Can't think of anything I didn't like really.
Receptionist could not give driving directions to airport. No breakfast at all and Discount coupon provided for adjacent ihop, but good only for lunch or dinner - that is just wrong when the hotel itself does not offer any type of breakfast. Location - unattractive area and far from beachfront.
Friendly Staff from Front Desk to Maids as you leave your room!
Lack of lightness in the room during the day.
