We stayed here as a family (two adults and a toddler) The location is fantastic as it is right on the beach and walking distance to the shops. It is also easy to drive around and you can hire a car at the hotel which makes everything easy. The food is good - especially the pancakes on the breakfast menu!...

We stayed here for a family vacation. Lobby is gorgeous, views are amazing!! Hotel so close to everything. Service was very good. Rooms were average, stained carpet, tired bedding, worn furniture. This pricy peak season hotel was great for location!

Our room was first class and large. The beds were comfy and big. We didn't have a balcony, but didn't expect one, as some people do. The food in the restaurant was very good and a reasonable price. Breakfast was great but beware you do get an awful lot of it. We had to share. The staff were very helpful,...

Short stay in an upgraded ocean view deluxe room with two doubles. Small room. Great view but the balcony was a joke it was probably 12 inches deep, cannot stand on the balcony. Easy access to the beach, bike rentals etc. great guitar player at the pool.

This was our second stay at the hotel, following a trip in September 2013.

Stayed at this property just last year and loved it. Had a completely opposite experience this time. Our room overlooked an alley filled with garbage and disgusting smells.

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.
