It was in walking distant of the beach
- location - staff - pool
- nothing, should have stayed longer
Location, size of suite, cleanliness and available kitchen.
No elevator, excessive street noise, smoking by hotel guests on balconies.
Internet conecction is very bad.
Location was reasonable, car parking available but not free. Room was large but facilities quite poor. Staff were friendly but remote.
Parking fees. Kitchen was a reasonable size but had very few items as is a couple of plates, limited cutlery. Charging for WiFi is unreasonable as free WiFi is available in most places. Pool was not at all inviting.No air conditioning only floor and ceiling fans. Noisy from traffic and people
Good price for location. Staff was really nice and helpful.
Dump truck outside every morning even Sunday 730am
Very helpful staff. Provision of garden chairs outside the rooms.
Very noisy location, especially rooms backing on to the service road. Difficult to sleep after 6am due to noise from service vehicles.
This was a great place for shops, beach, food outlets. Great pool. Holly gave us a warm and informative welcome.We felt very welcomed after a long flight If only all receptionists could be this friendly!
Perhaps carpet due for replacement? My husband found water pressure in shower poor.
The price for size of unit and location was very good when compared with other facilities. We paid for the parking off-street...though costly for a traveler, it is normal for this area. This left us vehicle worry free and other than a trek outside the area for dinner one evening, we left the car parked and walked everywhere. It is close to the pier, to the Promenade, and Ocean Avenue, so we spent little time in our unit. We liked the size of the unit. Once we got past the initial impression, we settled into our stay quite well. The desk clerk was very quick to help locate a variety of venues for us by computer and map. Flowers, green plants and pool made entering and exiting a good experience.
The staff works very hard to maintain these rooms. But, the units are old (prior apartments), and the rug, furniture, and bedroom linens in our unit were old and dingy. They are beyond the staff's ability to keep the appearance of being adequately clean. Our stay would have been more relaxed if the furniture, bedroom linens and rug had been replaced. These units have tremendous potential, and the facility appears to be a work in progress.
Location (3 blocks from beach) is excellent. Nice neighborhood, close to many restaurants (3rd St. promenade) too. Huge suite/room, felt more like walking into an apartment than a hotel room. Very friendly, very nice staff. I would gladly stay again.
The one suggestion for improvement would be to add curtains (in addition to the slats) to darken the rooms for sleeping. The building is older, so the walls are a bit thin. (Nothing they can do about that, more of an observation than a negative.) If you're a light sleeper, you might want to bring earplugs.
Studio suite - lounge, dining area and kitchen Heated pool and towels provided
Lack of cooking utensils eg baking tray, dishes for use in oven
Location was okay.
The room backed onto an alley which had constant bin emptying (skips, bottle banks etc) from 6am. It felt like the trucks were basically in our heads. They say they have no control over the municipal services, but they could attempt to insulate the sound with decent windows. And if it was still bad, then they should not let those rooms out on those days, or offer a warning and a discount rate. To take people's money for a hotel room that it is literally impossible to sleep in is bordering on theft. I would recommend that everyone avoids this hotel.
nice people of personal, friendly
sleeping is impossible, when rubbishtransport from the neighbour hotel starts at 6 in the morning
Warm pool, great room size, parking (although fees apply), large kitchen, all good. Nice relaxed atmosphere in great location for Santa Monica.
Decor just needs updating, especially furniture and bathroom. Useable but pretty old now. Cracked tiles and grouting.
Location, big apt style room, front lady Hollie (?) very friendly
Infant crib was very old and not safe for baby. Bring your own.
This hotel has a great location and generally speaking is a great little hotel. However a few things really let it down
-Noise. The walls are paper thin. Earplugs are a must. I dont think I would have slept with out them. I could make out what next door were watching on TV, every step of someone walking around upstairs. - The hotel is very much in need of some money spending on it. The towels and sheets were very very worn. -$9 per device for wifi is extortion and was pretty slow and kept disconnecting.
The location The size of the living room Having a small kitchen is nice.
Too noisy early in the morning. Every morning garbage truck comes 1st thing. Impossible to sleep through. Needs new double pane windows to reduce noise from alley below. Lots of cigarette smoking outside and by the pool. Could use some nicer, larger towels.
Great location Close to everything Staff fantastic
location, atmosphere, staff
you could hear thru the walls...
The large rooms, the frienly staff, the great pool
Location Spaciousness of accommodation Nice kitchen Nice bedroom Good living room
Cramped bathroom Furniture a little dated and some of it tired The desk chair had torn covering to the seat of the chair
Location 1950 style building Pool Suites rather than rooms Friendly staff / warm vibe Fans rather than air conditioning
Carpets, bathroom tiles, cupboard doors and kitchen all a bit tired The fence around the pool
the beautiful view of the pool in the evening and the spaciousness of the suite.
Trash truck was relentless Monday morning.
The staff The apartment The Poolen Best location Easy parkering Everything
No wi-fi, 9 dollars per dag, that's bad
