We couldn't ask for a better location!!! Just a few steps from shops, clubs, bars, restaurants, Pier, everything! !! Staff was very friendly and professional. Love this Hotel and definitely we will be staying here every time we visit santa Monica.
The staff were amazing, The location, the bed, steamy hot shower, access to my car
Street Noise made it really hard to sleep and relax... otherwise, it would have been a great stay
looking back it was a tad expensive.
Noise from outside plant. No hairdryer in the room Breakfast was very poor
The service was great and staff helpful. Beds were comfortable. Location was perfect for access to 3rd Street Promenade & Santa Monica Pier.
Price was a bit high and breakfast could have more options. Even just an option of toast and fruit would be great.
The staff was excellent and helpful and I loved the fact that I did not need a car to get anywhere. Everything was very convenient and the location was ideal!
There should be a vending and ice machine on every floor.
Location and comfort of room
Unpleasant odour in foyer and elevator
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!!
