Stayed here for three nights on a West Coast road trip. Brilliant location, good for beach and town. Service and facilities were very good. Free use of body boards, umbrellas and each equipment (from concierge) were a very nice touch, as were the bikes and beach chairs. (All first come, first served). The rooms were spacious and modern. Overall we...

Great location! We had a nice view of the beach/ocean. Friendly service, especially the poolside service. Nice and comfortable rooms, but the rooms and the hotel itself can use some updating. The A/C in our room did not work well during the day. I understand it is peak season and the hotel's prime location, just not sure if it was...

We stayed in Santa Monica in July as a part of a west coast road trip that we took to celebrate 10 years of marriage.

Location of the Hotel remains only true advantage, together with nice pool area. The rooms are outdated, old carpet, bathtubs and IKEA style furnishings. Pricing is far above quality. Same as Best Western at 2x price. Not for luxury traveler.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
