Not a bad place to stay.

Posted Oct 12, 2014
Cons: Air conditioning/ Wi-Fi signal's strength to back of motel complex.
Location: Motel is 20 mins walk from the beach, 5 mins by the No. 3 bus, lots of places to eat nearby too.
Me & my wife stayed here for a week. We found the motel with no problems at all, just get the free airport bus to the LAX tranportation hub & catch the Big Blue Bus No3 from stop 12 ($1 fare each) & just under an hour later get off at the corners of Pico & Lincoln Blvd's & you'll see the big white/blue motel sign. Check-in was no problem at all & the room was great, bed was good, tv had a lot of choice, bathroom/shower was really clean. Only downfall to room was the lack of air-con & the ceiling fan was good provided you had the window open. The window did have an insect cover, so should you need to open window, the little nasties could not get in. Wi-fi is ok, the closer your room is to the main office the better the signal, as our room was at the back of the complex, we had to use the courtyard outdoor table & chairs area to use the wi-fi. Beach is 20 mins walk from motel, simply exit the motel & turn left, walk to Pico & turn left & follow Pico all the way to beach, or catch Big Blue Bus No. 3 ($1 fare, 5-10 mins) If you want to goto Hollywood, you can walk (about 20 mins) left out of hotel & simply follow Lincoln Blvd to Santa Monica Blvd & catch bus 704, or catch bus No.3 to beach & catch bus 704 from beach & then get off at Vermont/Sunset to use subway to Hollywood & Highland, then you can see chinese theatre at the main exit. I suggest you buy a metro week pass ($25) which enables you to use metro buses & subway. All-in-all our stay in LA was fantastic.

Basic motel, 10-15min walk to beach, in noisy area

Posted Oct 1, 2014
Pros: Lady at the front desk very helpful, went out of her way in search of info for me.
I had an upstairs room with windows facing the gas station and street. You have to keep your windows open to cool the room off as it only has a fan, no A/C. Room was never uncomfortable temp, btw. Open windows (in september) were adequate ventilation. But if you are at all sensitive to noise, look elsewhere. There is a bar across the street, maybe 200-300 feet from my window, but there is very loud live music at night sometimes. Really good music too, i might add, but holy crap they had it cranked. Almost comical. Not sure if noise was waking me up at night or if loud events just coincided with my wee hours bathroom trips, but if drunks at the bar have a lovers quarrel, you will have a front row seat to every word. My wife slept thru everything every night, and as i am not particularly sensitive to noise, i only had to close the windows once in the dawn hours when traffic and large trucks continually rumbled past. Gas station next door, about 10 restaurants in striking distance (dennys, taco bell, jackinbox, donut king) and walgreens is less than 5 minutes walk away. But the amenities are adequate, staff was above average in my experience, other guests werent at all shady. Basic but adequate place. I would stay again

Pros: Clean and spacious
Cons: Air conditioning could be provided
We had chosen this hotel based on proximity to the beach and we were not disappointed. A short walk to the beach. Room was pretty spacious and check-in/check-out procedures were a breeze. The only downside was the fact that there was no air conditioning in the room we were allotted. So, the room got a little stuffy at night.

Very clean pleasant room.

Posted Aug 1, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness of room and price.
Cons: Air conditioning rather than just a ceiling fan as it was hot on return to room in evening.
Location: Ideal cycling distance down to the beach and an ok area,
Price reflects distance from beach but very happy with choice.

Pros: It was the least expensive hotel that I could find. Others were quite a bit more expensive--in the order of at least twice as expensive as the hotel.
Cons: Get a phone and a microwave. And, fix parking. So many people cannot park for beans, so would take up more than one space. Ticket those people.
Location: Not much to talk about. Not much to tell, but everything that Santa Monica has to offer is not far by auto.
It had no telephone, no ice, no microwave (but it did have a mini fridge), and nothing on which to put a suitcase. Minimal furnishings, but comfy enough. Nice flat-screen TV. On the last day, the woman who checked me out copied my boarding pass for no charge even though business was always done w/ the person on the outside speaking through the window to the person in charge of the desk. I was pleasantly surprised by that. There were codes for the user ID and password for the internet. Internet was free, which was nice, but the codes kept changing, so I would have to walk over to the person at the window to get new codes. Remember, no phone? Sure, I guess I could have called using my cell, but I didn't have their phone number handy.
