Needs updating or redecorating
ideally located. Quaint and the most financially-reasonable option in the area

Wifi very slow constantly having to re activate. No fridge
Beautiful beds and overall "feel" about the hotel. Upgraded to family room when informed front desk that we had a lot of luggage as my daughter was coming home from college.

Wifi was pretty average on trying to get connection
We have stayed here several times with young kids and the location is hard to beat for the price. Rooms are clean and quite spacious. Breakfasts are basic, decor a little dated but we are all for the location. Other hotels in the area have become ridiculously priced.

Staff was completely incompetent about what to do around the hotel whether it be restaurants ... Biking... Activities.. Etc. Room is fine to be honest. Elevator smells like a dirty diaper. Great location but would appreciate kinder staff to bump this to a 3.5 1:30am they deactivated elevator for breakfast? It wasn't normal and they were not polite (let us know that they needed to get home) for a $250 a night situation. The staff on Saturday night (Sam the night auditor) was also extremely rude when we got in and again acted like we were the disturbance for needing the elevator. We also needed to request the wifi login information 3 times and waited for over half an hour for them to bring the paper with the login to our room (would not relay the info on the phone). They change the wifi everyday and do not bring you a new login daily but only upon request...would absolutely not recommend for business.
The location is about it.

Very bad wifi Mediocre breakfast Noisy
The hotel was in a very good location, it was right on second street and broadway, everything was near by, and the traffic wasnt bad going in and out. The majority of the staff were very friendly and courteous.

The breakfast was very poor, with no options, just coffee and a cake (that was all!), and only to tables in the lobby - that was the "breakfast". I'd book with no breakfast included.
The location is great, in the heart of Santa Monica, close to the pier and to the 3rd St Promenade.

Not much to offer as far as amenities....had to pay for parking.
Great location, has an interesting 1930's kind of feeling.

Breakfast isn't good, room is expensive
Great location with restaurants and bars, walking distance from the beach
March 29, 2015
Needs renovation and breakfast should be greatly improved. It results pricy considering you're paying location.
Location, location and friendly staff

The area was obviously rowdy at night. The night porter had to unlock the padlock on the door to let us back in and when we asked if that was necessary he nodded in the affirmative?
Clean and tidy, everything we needed, just a little "tired" rooms

for the money u pay in LA this is a great place. The guys at the front desk were very accomodating and welcoming. They were the morning crew. They even managed to check us in early and nothing was an issue. The location is spot on for Samta Monica. All staff we're friendly also. Is not 5 star but it's service is !

Bed was comfortable but chairs in room were spartan. No business center. If you like NYC boutique you will like this cute little Hotel.
Great location, friendly people.

There was a bad smell in the lounge, a fecal odor. It was more faint in the room. I could not wait to leave in the morning.
Location is great. It's probably better than the cheaper hotels in the area. There's probably not a better choice given that the 4-star hotels cost $350-$500/night.

Dated hotel and the bedframes are so dangerous for your knees. To be honest everything about this hotel is wrong. I suggest looking further.

Popcorn Ceilings....seriously? Feels like a renovated crack house.
Great location. Nordstrom is across the street and the hotel backs up to 3rd street promenade. Staff extremely helpful and very nice.

The location is excellent
February 22, 2015
very noisy hotel, wifi extremely slow, rooms need a facelift
good location as close to the beach and main shopping, bars and restaurants area.
February 17, 2015
The complimentary 'breakfast' was just muffins and juice.
the location is great.
February 17, 2015
We loved the style of hotel, and the convenient location so close to the beach. Would have loved to spend more time there.
February 15, 2015
no hair dryer, overall the hotel does not smell good and clean, parking is not free, rooms are dark, complimentary breakfest means just coffee and donuts, only just one table in breakfest place. Too expensive, does not worth to pay that much to stay.
It is in very good location, just next to 3rd street promonade and very close to Santa Monica Pier. Wifi was not looking free when we booked the hotel, but we were given a password for wifi for free during check-in.

Perfect location. Parking advantages..

Very stuffy and dusty rooms. No coffee maker in rooms no hair dryers,etc. very plain and small bathroom for the money.
Great location in the heart of the district

Was a little noisy. There was work on the corner and they did work later in the day
