清潔感のあるホテルです

Posted Jan 30, 2015
設備は古く、冷蔵庫やドライヤーが部屋にありませんでした。ただ、気になる点はそこだけで掃除は行き届き、ビーチにも買い物にも大変便利で快適でした。朝ごはんは無料でついているし、すぐ隣のカフェのパンケーキもオススメです。また泊まりたいと思います。

Very old rooms but clean! Bathroom and showers are also old and small! No room fridge but ice bucket through room service! Plenty of clothes and bag storage in the closet!

立地は抜群です

Posted Jan 14, 2015
Pros: 立地です。とても良い場所でした。
Cons: ボイラーのような音がうるさかったです。あの音がなければ,絶対おすすめしたいホテルです。
Location: サンタモニカピアやビーチにのんびり歩いて行けます。12月でしたが日本ほど寒くないし,とても天気が良くて,最高の散歩になります。ショッピングのお店が開く前の朝の時間は,早く目が覚めたらビーチやピアへの散歩をおすすめします。
サンタモニカプレイスや3rdプロムナードに歩いて3分くらいなので,買い物や食事にはとても便利です。夜にビーチ近くのお店で食事をして,お酒を飲んでも,のんびり歩いて帰ってこられる距離でした。 サンタモニカピアやビーチへは歩いて15分くらいなので,散歩をするのにもちょうど良い近さでした。 朝食はサービスで,ロビーにマフィンやペストリーと,コーヒー・紅茶・オレンジジュースが置いてありました。マフィンがおいしかったです。 ホテルの建物自体は古い感じでしたが,お風呂の水圧もお湯も問題はありませんでした。ただ,中庭のボイラー(?)なのか,エアコンのような音がかなり大きくて,寝ていても時々起きるくらいの大きさの音でした。ビーチ近くのサンタモニカのホテルの値段が高いことを考えると,この立地でこの価格は魅力的です。でも,疲れていたにもかかわらず,音がうるさくて夜中に時々目が覚めたので,もし,自分が次もここに泊まるなら耳栓を持っていくかな,と思います。もしくは,多少値段が高くても,別のホテルを選ぶかもしれません。(音が気になる質なので・・・) 音が平気な人にはおすすめできますが,のんびりホテルで過ごしたい人や,寝るときの音が気になる人にはおすすめしません。

Very good location and big room

Posted Jan 5, 2015
Pros: staff, room, location
Cons: breakfast and wi-fi range
Location: right by the Santa Monica pier, couldn't be a better location!
went there for the new years eve... the hotel staff was very helpful and nice, being that was Dec 31st, 8pm - they were pretty joyful working. the hotel is a little dated in regards of furniture, but it has modern heating system, lights and fans. TV as well. And the bathroom is also excellent. bed was excellent, folding sofa bed, well, just like every other one. only issue I had was with the wi-fi, very intermittent and made me gave up using it. another comment that i would say is that they offer breakfast, but only sweet things. no savory... i think that for that price and the level of the hotel, a better breakfast could be served...

Nice Hotel, close to everything

Posted Dec 6, 2014
Pros: It's location
Cons: The ONLY criticism I have is that because of the age of the hotel it has a musty smell.
Location: The hotel is one street from Santa Monica Pier, 3rd Avenue, the beach, bus stops and the shopping market.
Hotel Carmel was as described, clean, tidy, friendly staff and close to everything, the beach, the pier, 3rd Ave and the market.

Great Location, Older Hotel

Posted Oct 31, 2014
Pros: Location is great!
Cons: Hotel could use some updates
Location: Hotel is right next to 3rd Street Promenade which has shopping, restaurants, street performers, nightlife. It's also 2 blocks from beach!
Santa Monica is not the cheapest place to visit! I chose this hotel because it was much less expensive than some of the others nearby - Marriott, Wyndham, etc. The location is great! It's right next to the 3rd Street Promenade and about 2 blocks from the beach access. You can't beat the location for this price. The room views weren't great but who stays in their room much while visiting Santa Monica?! It's too beautiful to sit in your room. The hotel is older, had a slight musky smell and could use some updates to be a bit more modern but I would stay here again and I would recommend it to a friend as a less expensive hotel option in Santa Monica. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The valets were excellent when I needed to get a cab back to the airport. They set me up with a driver who charged a flat fee back to LAX regardless of time/traffic.

Needs vacuuming ! It was filthy.

Posted Oct 29, 2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: Vacuum the carpets and tidy the peeling paintwork.
Location: Many bars and restaurants nearby. Definitely a fantastic location.
Great location and a hotel with character, but I could not believe the filthy carpets which had not been vacuumed for weeks. I had to ask them to come and vacuum my room !
