    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.

    Nothing whatsoever.

    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

    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!)

    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!

    Relaxed ambience

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great location, friendly staff

    Very poor wifi. Thin walls let sound travel: we could hear every conversation outside, every suitcase rolling. $36 parking and only space for a handful of cars - we ended up having to park 10 minutes walk away.

    Location, price, and the ambience of a 1940's Hotel. James, at the front desk, was especially helpful.Will definitely come back.

    Parking. Any chance of getting special permits to pay to park at night in the lots between hotel and beach. Staff was helpful in suggesting alternative parking, however.

    The location was key and the service was really good:)

    We stayed in a suite and only one room had a Ceiling fan, as well as no ac in the unit, which made it stuffy:(

    The most friendly and helpful staff I have had the pleasure to meet Katie couldn't do enough for us. The Hotel had that much character it was almost alive

    Location near to everything Santa Minica has to offer.

    Some road noise if your room is at the front and no elevator.
