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 ..
Location Different from chains Staff
Parking Cleanliness Noise from road
Great staff (Aaron, James) Cool decor Super clean Close to tons of stuff
Fantastic area. Fantastic people.
Excellent position, right next to beach, pier, plenty restaurants. Most comfortable bed!! Young guy and girl on reception lovely!
Parking at hotel expensive! Guy at reception (jd I think) didn't tell us that parking over the road about a third of the price!
Great location very close to Santa Monica beach and Pier, very comfortable room (recently restored), breakfast included in the tarif, internal car park
Breakfast could be richer and more various
location friendly staff
old shower was tiny wifi is free but soooo slow... parking is limited and expensive
Super friendly and helpful staff (Aaron and James are stars!), perfect location. Definitely would choose it again. Not too far from LAX, next to beach.
Bathroom could have been a bit more modern.
The staff, they were so friendly and bent over backwards to help us. Made our short and hectic visit to LA/Santa Monica a very memorable one.
The location and proximity to the beach are great
Ridiculously small rooms. No dresser. No counter top in bathroom, tiny shower. No A/C. Drunken parties at night
We fell in love with this place but when we first checked in we were pretty upset about the room we were given considering I had booked it back in May. As my new credit card got lost in post I cancelled it therefore when hotel tried to process card it would not work which I was notified by booking.com. The same day I gave new credit card details so as our room was held but they had changed it to their worst room straight away. Luckily we had a lovely fellow named David who managed to give us a beautiful room 29A. We had a fantastic stay and staff were awesome and very helpful especially Katie. Aaron was awesome as well. :):)
Great location near the beach, cozy and pleasant rooms, best value for money in this area
Day staff (specially Katie and Aaron) was quite pleasant
Night staff namely JD was very unpolite and not helpful at all
Good location, very helpful staff
No pool, could be noisy at night. No air con. Wifi bit slow.
Location! Friendly staff! Awesomely comfortable beds! Fun and different Much better price than surrounding hotels
No air conditioning - summer travelers take note. A tad noisy at night if you are early-to-bed Breakfast is very rudimentary (but coffee is good!)
What a great location and friendly staff. I loved the quirky feel of the place and would definitely be back.
Nothing - overall fantastic experience.
Location was fantastic
Hardly any parking.
Loved the friendly atmosphere and great location. Staff seemed to genuinely want to help make our stay a great one. We were helped by Aaron, James and a very friendly Katie. Thanks.
Paying extra to park - were fully aware of fee when booking, but never good to have to pay extras! - though do understand parking prices are very high in the local area!
Parking limited and expensive. However a good and cheap civic parkade with plenty of spaces is available a couple of blocks away which if I had been told about at the start would have saved me first 2 nights valet parking charges at Loews hotel next door.
Excellent situation. Peacefull. So kindfull
Parking pretty expensive but So convenient.
The staff were excellent! Always helped in providing good advice on where to go, very helpful.
Unforunately our wifi wasn't always connecting, so it may of been just the room we were in.
No A/C in the room.
This cute boutique hotel is in a perfect location. You can walk to everything. Katie and the rest of the staff were awesome. Very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable.
I don't have any complaints.
The customer service was excellent!
Parking but then California parking in general is didficult
