Nice accommodations at reasonable pricePosted Apr 17, 2015
Room amenities were above par however location of hotel is not ideal to tourists wishing to be near the pier. Hotel provides shuttle service with the last one leaving at 8 pm.

The Taco Bell of HotelsPosted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: Central location.
Cons: Please clean mold from around bathroom sink top. Turn the radio in the hallways off at night.
Pictures of the room are spot on. Pictures of the grounds and area are misleading. Bathroom was well sized, but the door closes automatically. As a female who uses a blow dryer, it got awfully warm in there very quickly. Music is piped into the hallways 24-hours a day, take earplugs. Mattresses were uncomfortable. While the hotel is passable, especially if you are just sleeping there, you can do better.

Great location and excellent value.Posted Apr 15, 2015
Stayed at the Best Western Plus Gateway at the back end of our US trip. Very pleasantly surprised at just how close this was to the action at Santa Monica (around a 20 minute walk). This hotel was extremely clean, staff were pleasant and the room was spacious and reasonably modern. I would highly recommend this hotel if you don't need to be right in the action and are travelling on a budget.

Good valuePosted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: Next door there's an IHOP for breakfast. Clean, free covered parking, convenient.
Location: about 1 mile from Santa Monica Pier. We did not walk but we drove down to the pier.
We stayed one night while visiting Santa Monica, we were very pleased with the facilities, they had an elevator and the rooms were clean and spacious. they even offer an hourly shuttle service to the pier. Would stay here again.

Perfect hotel in the heart of Santa MonicaPosted Apr 12, 2015
Great hotel, nice rooms, fast check in and very helpful staff. We are a Family of 3 (2 adults and 1 child) and were on our first trip / vacation in USA visiting from NZ. This hotel exceeded our expectations. We loved staying here and would definitely return again. Highly recommended to all. IHOP right next door and free shuttle to the Pier.

Reasonably priced.Posted Apr 12, 2015
Pros: Staff and decor.
Cons: Bigger room.
Location: Good location to get down to beach by bus. $1 per trip per person
The hotel is a good value for the price. Hotel staff were very nice. Hotel was clean and attractive. No pool. No restaurant, except the IHOP next door. Good location to get the bus to town. Room was tight for our family of four - 2 teens. Beds were comfortable. No view.

Clean hotel. Free parking.Posted Apr 6, 2015
Clean room. Felt very sterile. Free parking a big plus but very loud outside due to proximity to hospitals.

Solid basic hotel in a great location.Posted Mar 28, 2015
If you're looking for a clean, quiet room in the heart of West LA this is a great choice. The staff is pleasant, there's plenty of underground self-parking, and the rooms are recently remodeled.

Nice enough, but not close enoughPosted Mar 28, 2015
Pros: The mattress.
Cons: The bed linen.
Location: Bus transport is nearby & IHOP is next door.
The hotel was chosen for price rather than convenience so if you don't have a car to get around then choose by convenience of location. The room was smallish, the bed linen was only fair but the mattress was excellent. Verandah sliding door was very stiff in need of maintenance.
