Friendly Staff Great Location Nice Feel/Different to your Holiday Inn's etc. Plenty of Room
They probably need to improve the breakfasts-More Space perhaps and dedicated room for breakfast rather than front office. This change would it make a great place even better.
We loved the location of the hotel. The staff was very nice. Coffee was good. Fun décor.
The room was super tiny for a Jr. Suite. The 2nd bedroom was VERY small and only the bed fit in there. The window had no screen and it was soooo hot in that room you had to keep the window open and the light outside glared into the room and anyone who wanted to could climb right in. No rest here. They didn't have any cups to offer us other than paper coffee cups? The maids room was right next to us, and there were piles of trash outside the entire weekend. One of the maintenance guys sprayed down all the patio's and walk ways with a hose. No concern for our California drought. We booked two nights for $479 but we paid $657??
The walk path to the beach - Bed with the surfboard headboard and the guitar above the bed
TV didn't have HDM1 Cable so it was in-opp
Location is perfect, staff too, nice small room with wifi
Location is great
Small rooms, small and old bathrooms, update needed !! Small bed, hot room with no AACC and noisy during the night. Wifi is terrible. Parking in the hotel is 36 usd per night, hotel is overrated.
The poor wifi was the only problem.
Everything is within a walking distance. I did not move my car for 2 days. There is a nice bike rental just behind the hotel and you can rent it for a whole day. The staff are super friendly and helpful.
The WIFI was terrible, slow, and did not work most of the time. The breakfast is not always available.
I really loved this hotel. It just has a certain unquantifiable warmth and charm about it. In particular the staff were some of the loveliest and most accommodating that I've come across. The location is great and the room rate was the cheapest of its kind in the area. This is definitely my go-to LA hotel from now on.
The only thing I struggled with was the wifi. It works fine in the courtyard but can be patchy in some of the rooms.
The location is Prime for the price. So much to do just steps away from the Hotel. The hotel is shabby chic. Very old and awesome. I am sort of a hippy though...
I did not like paying for parking, however everywhere in the area you pay for parking, and its nice to know you can come and go and park at the hotel for a one day price of $34. It should be included in the hotel price and they do not tell you about it ahead of time. Also parking is limited at the hotel so your not gauranteed a spot.
Parking price Wi-fi Breakfast
Old fashioned but very clean Beach and Santa Monica pier 5 minute walk away
Breakfast very basic.
We enjoyed the quaintness of the hotel. You can't beat the location. The staff is very nice and more than helpful. I will diffenitatly come back. Aaron was a great help to us.
The WiFi was horrible and we really needed it.
Location and decor. Very topical with the surf boards etc
Two minute walk from the beach, 5 minute walk from the Santa Monica Pier, 10 minute walk from 3rd St Promenade shopping. Nice size, large comfy beds. Super friendly and helpful staff (especially Aaron and Katie). Good breakfast. We absolutely loved staying here.
The air con was really noisy so couldn't leave on at night. This didn't bother us too much as even though it was warm at night (we were there in September), it was still a pleasant enough temperature to sleep.
Excellent staff, good WiFi, fantastic location.
Bit noisy from road, but did not prevent sleep
Best location in Santa Monica, with excellent service from James and Aaron. If we are back in Santa Monica we will definitely be staying here.
Location was perfect. The suite would be perfected for a couple who wanted space but not three adults. It was a funky place and could be a great experience if we knew the layout in advance.
We were told the room was ready however when we went in it hadn't been cleaned at all and the bathroom was disgusting. While they did clean the room, things like the lamps and chains were filthy. Also to charge $37 additional for parking was crazy.
everything, we booked 5 nights and booked out after the first night. We had hairs in the bed, it was damp and filthy!.
Great location, very cool, relaxed place
We had a ground floor suite and the people above were very noisy having a domestic all night.
Staff were extremely helpful - Big thank you. Air conditioned apartment was great, very clean and comfortable. Central location to Santa Monica Pier.
Katie, Aaron and James were at the front desk during our stay. They were great. They ensured the coffee was fresh, had lots of helpful suggestions - and were fun and friendly.
The ceiling fan was a bit wobbly and noisy - but, considering the great mural painted on the ceiling who would notice or care? We really liked The Hotel California.
This is a cosy little hotel with perfect location. The breakfast is basic, but OK (good coffee), We enjoyed the hotel very much.
It's not easy to find a hotel with good wifi - and this is another one.
location cool as ..
