If you value your health, never stay in this hotel. It is dirty, the furniture is broken and there are some dangerous people that stay in this hotel. There are no safety features and you can't be sure your door locks completely, bed broke on contact...and the floor was filthy and there were freaking needles under the bed. Yes, this...

The First Problem was upon Arrival. the Stated price of $82 per Night was not adhered to they increased the rate to $300 for three Days. The Location was very Convenient as long as you have a Bicycle. They Don't Clean your Room Daily. The Night Manager did Wake me at 6:00 Promptly for a Required Appointment. A Great Deal...

OK, This place in short is a dive. The only reason I'm giving it a 3 is because it doesn't claim to be anything above its station. The owner and who I'm presuming to be his son are friendly and chatty. Decent proximity to the beach. Room was very basic and outdated. TV didn't work. Truthfully didn't really feel safe...

Absolutely disgusting! We went in to our room and there was no way we were staying there. We quickly booked another hotel elsewhere, despite having already paid for our 4 nights at the Pavilions. The room was filthy, old and not fit for anyone to stay there. We had read a few reviews beforehand but thought we would chance it...

I was in Santa Monica for one night and couldn't spend a lot, the next cheapest hotel was $100 more than this one so I took risk despite all the bad reviews. If you're okay with the absolute minimum, this place is okay. It's definitely run down, I could only get one channel on the TV and the wifi was...

We walked out after 4 minutes. They refused to refund our money. If you choose to book this room, be prepared for the most disgusting situation you've ever been in. There were cigarette burns on the 50 year old bedspread, an unidentifiable stench, there were bags of empty beer cans, and it has not been cleaned EVER. The used condom...

Worst experience ever! This place is just a mess the room is not even worth 20$ a night! Unbelievable how they are still open! Worst part is they lied about refunding my money!

This property should be taken off the Orbitz website and inventory list. The place is absolutely deplorable. Aside from it being rundown and ill kept, the rooms are the size of large closet—if that! I took some photos of the interior where I stayed just to show you how uninhabitable the room was. Where do I begin? The bathroom is...

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.
