The location is very well.
We slept at the back of the hotel, the garbage makes a lot of noice in the morning. One elevator
Location was excellent. 5 minute walk to Santa Monica Pier and the main shopping centre. Loads of nice restaurants within 5/10 min walk. The rooms were basic but clean. Wifi was ok. Would stay there again for the location. 30/40 min drive to Hollywood.
The breakfast was 'served' In the lobby. It consisted of a selection of muffins and pasteries. Don't pay extra for the breakfast when booking. You'll end up eating out anyway.
Staff very helpful. Location perfect.

For a couple/person who just wants a clean hotel room, comfy bed and a great location like us this hotel is great value for money
Excellent location. Even nicer than expected from photos. Coffee and pastries for breakfast, Paper devilered to room daily. Spacious room. Big comfy bed.
Everything was perfect.
Great service from friendly staff. Jermaine was fantastic - service with a smile!
Bathrooms were old and in need of a revamp.
Carmel was within a few minutes walk of the boardwalk and also near the bus lines into LA. We had a King size bed which was comfortable although the room was fairly small.
Breakfast was just coffee and a pastry and there were only a couple of tables. Had to pay $17 to park but everywhere in town required parking so it was great to have the option. We were even able to leave our car there for the day after we checked out. Thanks Carmel for being generous.
Frontage, valet parking, lobby are, staff, location
No hairdryer, no towel hooks, no coffee making facilities either in room or 24hrs in reception area. No in site restaurant for either breakfast or evening meal which was advertised when hotel booking made.
My wife warned me when she exited the bathtub/shower. When I stepped in the bottom of the tub started to gyrate like there was a hugh air bubble under the tub bottom. It was difficult to stand up straight and keep your balance. Totally unacceptable and VERY dangerous. I can't believe management didn't know about it.
The location was excellent and the beds were very comfortable. We were upgraded to a larger room which was great.
The breakfast was poor.
Close to attractions and reasonable
Had charm but is showing it's age
Location excellent Cheap public car park across the road. $14 per day
Musty smell in room. You could nearly smell the last persons that was in the room. Dated interior. Expensive valet
-Location -The staff was friendly ,,i lost my tablet and they found after 7 days but it's found so thanks,
No coffe maker or heater No baby bed!!
Free wifi , breakfast and newspapers which u do not get even in 5 or 6 star hotels, safe box , natural ingredients in toiletries . Helpfulness of staff . Excellent location for shopping , food and near the pier
Rooms were small, cleaning detergent a bit strong when u initially enter the room . Could do with a little makeover to give the room a brighter atmosphere

I had a great experience for my 1 night stay. I had been staying in Hollywood and decided to spend my last night in Santa Monica. I had to check out at 11am and head straight to Hotel Carmel Santa Monica. They kindly checked me in early so that was really helpful. The hotel location was FANTASTIC! Everything I needed was around me and is just a short walk to the pier. I was on the third floor and had no issues with noise. I had a very peaceful sleep. I had a 12pm check out and my flight was not until 11pm that evening. They held my bags whilst I enjoyed venice beach and a bit of light shopping. I headed back to the hotel to collect my bags and book an uber for the airport. I was having difficulties booking an uber on my app as it would not recognize my US number. One of the staff kindly booked one for me on his app as his "good deed for the day"! What a life saver! I could not rate this hotel high enough and thank you again to the guy that helped me get to the airport and to all the staff that contributed to my stay. :)
Location, even though a block in from the beach, not "on the beach" as mentioned.
Upon arrival, even though I booked two rooms, both having two adults and children, they said my reservation was for one queen bed in each room and charged me additional monies, per night, per room to get two queen beds. Never heard of a hotel having one queen bed, it is usually two queens or 1 king. Rooms were very dingy, no updates in years. Staff at desk, not friendly or very helpful.
The man that brought our luggage in was outstanding
Internet was rubbish , had to keep asking for a new code . Whoever it was that checked us in was rude and so we're most staff on reception
The location, the room size, the comfort of beds
I wished the ac had a thermostat
Price, location, helpful staff.
Smell in room, lining under the shower was loose, felt as though the floor was going to cave in.
no breakfast even thou the website indicated that there was.
