    Location of this hotel was excellent, the pier is 200 meters away n the opposite side of the road. 4th street is approx 5 min stroll away.

    Friendly and helpful staff. Location was close to perfect. Clean, comfortable beds. Loads of choice for eating places around.

    Room was rather small for five people although we were grateful to find somewhere at this price so near to the beach. Parking difficult. There was nowhere we could see when we arrived from LAX after a 18 hour trip but the staff found us a (tight) space on the property.

    I ve stayed there second time- the second floor rooms are sertainly better. Wifi was great and the bathroom nice with spa samples. The next door restaurant gave 15% discount for food. Its been a good stay , the park for kids is two minutes away, its really great.

    No one is there till 10:30, we couldnt drop the bags, had to ask next door 5 star hotel to keep luggage till the room is ready

    The location

    The Bedding was stained, carpet had staines on it, the fridge needed a good clean or replaced. The room had a musky smell to it.

    location $5/day parking only 5 mins walk away (much better than $20/day onsite) staff are friendly

    Terrible terrible value for money, definitely the lower end of the motel spectrum. Yes, Santa Monica is an expensive place to stay, but there are far better places in close proximity for the same money. No breakfast.

    The only thing I liked was the close location to the beach , which was just one block away.

    No air conditioning, hard to sleep with all the street noise. No coffee shop near by, only restaurant close is not very appealing for just a regular breakfast. Room very expensive considering lack of extras plus a fee of 20 dollars a day to park.

    Easy walking to any location and pier.

    Although the "2 room suite" had 3 beds it was much smaller than I expected and very dated. Parking was an issue for our van with a luggage carrier. Not enough clearance at off site parking and so few and tiny spaces at property. Lady at desk was very helpful and let us take up two spots at property. Overall not what I expected and I have to think you can find better for the money.

    I really can't give an adequate review for this hotel. I never checked in even though I was able to check out the room (not as expected due to Booking.com's limited options), but the room did appear to be clean. Parking was unavailable and never found a spot to park, so I was unable to actually stay. However, my reservation was refunded due to the hotel manager stepping up and acknowledging the parking issue (thanks to security cams - good thing to have). It would have been a short walk to the beach, which is what my intent was for the reservation, and the price much lower than others with that beach access.

    Parking issues, which is apparently a widespread issue in LA and beach areas. Be advised you will pay extra for parking even though this is not highlighted by all area hotels.

    5 minute walk to the beach and within walking distance of restaurants, shops and clubs. Rooms were quiet even though Ocean Ave. is busy. Staff were very helpful. Nice retro hotel.

    A side table and lamp on both sides - instead of just one side - of the bed would be helpful. A box of tissues would complete the bathroom amenities.

    The manager was very helpful when we wanted to leave after one night. She facilitated that.

    The room size seemed very small compared to the description on booking.com. The noise from the traffic was pretty bad. Poor value for money. Very meagre breakfast.
