Good mid range hotel.

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Pros: The location and I had a nice room. They changed my room straight away when I thought the first one might be too noisy.
Cons: The breakfast. :(
Location: Good location. As a senior, $0.50 for the bus downtown Santa monica can't be beaten. Grocery stores and restaurants nearby.
The staff were great. Very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and cleaned every day. I loved the location. I really enjoyed the sundeck on the roof in the evening. I did not appreciate paper cups in the room for coffee and drinks. Costs could be cut by having real glasses or cups. Plus, the paper cups they used were individually wrapped - not good in today's environment.

Works if you only need a place to shower / sleep

Posted Mar 18, 2015
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful
Cons: Bathroom was very dated and worn looking. They need to call pest control more frequently.
I needed an affordable hotel in Santa Monica area at the last minute. It worked perfectly fine for just me, since I was only in the room to shower and sleep. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is older, and needs some updating in the bathrooms. I noticed ants on the bathroom floor on the last morning of my stay. If you are picky about hotels, this is not for you. If you just need a shower and moderately comfortable bed, it will work just fine.

Nice hotel in a great location

Posted Mar 16, 2015
Pros: It was not too big.
Cons: Vending machines on all floors and a continental breakfast with a bit more variety.
Location: All the tours offered in the area will pick up at this hotel.
This is a great small hotel that is close to the beach and to the city as well.

Nice hotel, great location.

Posted Mar 6, 2015
Room was spacious and clean. 4 people stayed there quite comfortably although I'd only booked for two so the receptionist gave me a small bit of a hard time when we asked for more towels but we talked our way out of extra charges. I would recommend this hotel to peeps who want to be close to the beach, Venice, west Hollywood etc but not pay extortionate prices.

This hotel is conveniently located on Santa Monica Blvd. in Santa Monica. It also offers free parking and free Wi-Fi. If you were staying there in the summertime it would be very hot as they do not have air conditioning. They also offer free breakfast which was satisfactory. We like to stay there because of its location.
