Clean Central Nice Welcome
No change since more than 10 years Individual gaz heating No black out curtains Very small bath room ,not suitable for 4 peoples
Old, not luxurious - but the friendly and serving staff, cleanliness, very safe and convenient location makes it a great choice. The staff went the extra mile without being asked - obviously nongreedy people, and family friendly. All that and the great price for the area makes it easy to recommend.
It is a noisy location that old structure does not buffer well. Bring ear plugs and you will be fine.
Location, layout, coziness, friendly staff
The location. The balcony. The kitchen!
They should have a spa/ jacuzzi
staff Location Cleaning Beds Kitchen Old but is GOLD
wifi not free and very bad, every time should be to connect.
Perfect location; very close to beach and 3 rd street(restaurants,bars shopping area),Flat is big enough,for parking extra payment is necessary but very easy parking just under building.
Need renovation,bit dated and room smell,Bed room faced to service road and terrible noise coming from garbage truck at the very early morning. Slow wi-fi
Very spacious suites and helpful staff
WiFi wasn't free and was so intermittent when ordered as to we useless!
Fantastic location with easy parking.
The hotel allows smoking outside of the rooms - I wish they didn't allow it on the property at all.
no free WiFi
Fantastic location very close to the beach in the quiet neighborhood. Shops and coffee shops a block away. Bright nice rooms, nice pool
Friendly Clean Heart Warming
Love the location and size of the apartment. Very friendly comfortable place to stay.
Had a few problems with WiFi
We had a very good stay. The location was great and the staff were very helpful. Our daughter and her children also stayed here and found the pool wonderful. We had to extend our stay and there was no problems with that and moving to a more suitable room.
My only gripe was at the end of our stay. My husband unfortunately was taken ill and I asked for help with our luggage but was told that everyone had left so had to manage our bags ourselves with no help offered untill we had finished.
Beautiful setting with palms surroundung pool. Staff very personally committed to guest comfort, went out of their way to make stay a good one. It was only steps from the best shopping and leisure hangout area, and the original wooden oak floors were great. Staff was very honest. I left a tablet in my bed and cleaners turned it in right away. I defintely would recommend this place if not needing wifi and ac. it s a gem with loads of carm and convenence...like a trip back in time. Wonderful warm lit pool for evening swimming, too!
Wifi just was too wesk to get web page and as I was thee for medical reasons and had to uplad pruvae medical info ahead of visit, this did not work for me. There were some noisy children around pool right outside my room and no ac, which I needed. The staff was gracious about my need to move, let me use their computer, and took care of my bag while I had a tourist day. The poor wifi was the only real reason I had to move.
Although expensive, this is a decent alternative to ocean front. Dated but comfortable rooms. There are suites where you can cook. But few amenities, wifi that doesn't work, a small pool.
No working wifi. Small pool. Few amenities. No restaurant
Pool was great, nice and warm. Close (2 min) to shopping and restarurants. 10 min walk to the santa Monica pir, on the beach or on a nice path along the beach with beautiful view. Small hotel, had a nice apartment. Easy to park at the hotel.
Clean pool. So quiet that I awakened in A.M. to birds singing in the trees. Gorgeous bird songs. Safe parking. Close to Santa Monica walking Mall. Up Wilshire Blvd. six blocks to Izzy's restaurant. Location location location! Even the lilies were blooming and fragrant.
I only had one day to stay. Had to follow the helicopters.
Spacious unit in excellent location
Kitchen facilities very dated and lack of utensils. No free Wi-Fi.
Noise from the street and the pool area. No air conditioning, was there on a very hot weekend
Noise every morning when the garbage truck comes to collect garbage bins at the side alley. Bring your ear plugs. Reserve a room at the pool level, far from the alley.
Comfortable and situated in a great location beside the beach and near lots of nice restaurants.
The sticky carpet in the suite. It was a bit noisey in the morning but that's to be expected in an old single paned window apartment.
The location of the hotel is very good, it is very close to the center of Santa Monica and the Pier. It is also easy to drive to Malibu, which around 30 min away. The room was big and enough for 4 people. The kitchen had all the required utensils and very practical to use. The room was clean and comfortable. There was no A/C but the fan was enough in the first week of October.
The only negative thing was the lack of free WiFi. Even though there is free internet on the 3rd St which is in a few minutes walking distance, it was very slow.
Full equipped apartment with bedroom, living and dining rooms and a kitchen with all itens for those who like to cook. A lot of space! One block away from 3rd Promenade, 2 blocks from the Oceanside.
Payed wifi: expensive and the only area where one can make connection is in the outside, near the pool. Inconvenient. Noisy: Santa Monica has service roads in the middle of the blocks. Although our room was a "pool view", distant from the major streets, the bedroom faced the service road and the garbage trunk passed by every 7 o'clock in the morning. For those wanting to rest, avoid these laterals rooms!
Great location. Had baggage storage.
Had to pay for wifi. Bit dated with a strange smell inside.
It was in walking distant of the beach
