great convenient location
wifi unreliable and had 3 small requests of staff but in each case staff failed to deliver
Great location. Along from Santa Monica Pier. Has very nice Mexican restaurant next door. Helpful staff.
Staff was amazing
It was a very interesting property with charm and great location. The people were really helpful.It was just fun.
Everything was great
Location and access to the beach
Staff attitude, cleanliness was very poor with hairs left in shower, poor facilities, poor breakfast. An expensive stay in a run down hotel and very poor value for money
- located steps away from the beach - 10 minute walk from great shopping, restaurants and bars -comfortable bed
- very poor noise proofing. I could hear my neighbours snoring in nearby rooms. -most of the towels had holes in them -questionable cleanliness. The floors were dirty.
Casual, friendly staff, roomy, a little bit rustic, but worth the trade-off for the space and price. Comfortable and very well located. Don't expect the shampoo to be better than what you have at home, but it's a great place to stay.
Since I grew up close by it was very nostalgic.
Would have liked a little larger bathroom facilities.
Funky vibe, great vintage buildings that are very well maintained, close to pier and 3rd St.Promenade.
Location great, building is 60 years old so expect noise from upstairs, creaky floorboards and very old fittings. If you stay here you need to know it is not a 5 star Hilton it is old so don't set your expectations too high. It is pretty good value and comfortable though and seemed to suit our last three days of a four week USA adventure. We tried to find better value in Santa Monica and I don't think we did too bad here in the end!
TV Remote was melted and they replaced it but couldn't get it tuned until next day! Breakfast is bagels and coffee/ hot chocolate but they seem reluctant to put new bagels out until you ask? Parking is $30 something a night out front if you can get a space but we got a park across the road for $14 a night.
Location, nice courtyard, cute boutique, very near beach
Breakfast was skimpy Wi-fi was spotty
The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on! Also AWESOME location... right opposite the pier and bus stops and cab ranks out in front.
Bathroom was small and pokey but I'm just being picky!
Location, morning staff very helpful and nice, showers very good. Coffee & tea in reception 24 hours
Rooms very tired and old fashioned needs an update. Bagels and coffee great but a toaster for the bagels would be beneficial. They don't take any cash this should be mentioned on booking.com
Location by the beach, surf inspired decor
pay US 36 for a overnight parking
Excellent location, close to everything: Santa Monica pier, the beach, public transportation, shopping etc. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!
The room was full of character and very comfortable. Great location and wonderful staff.
The wifi was not accessible from our room and the room was noisy backing on to a carpark/restaurant trash area.
Quirky room deco. Comfy bed
Noise from traffic at the front of the hotel loud.
Wake up call for our early flight didn't happen as was requested
location, staff and the overall value.
i thought the wifi could be better, and the bathroom was a bit old and dated.
We could not get any internet service in our room. We had to go outside to the courtyard, near the router to connect to the internet.
Comfy bed. Great art in room. Location to boardwalk/activites
cleanliness of studio
We enjoyed everything about the "Hotel California" and will return again soon. It's a fun, comfortable hotel near the beach.
