Great find

Posted Mar 13, 2015
Pros: Price, comfort and free parking.
Cons: Beds
Location: Very close to Santa Monica Pier and Place
We were skeptical about the location and the noise level, as well as the condition, given the price. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, quiet and condition of our room. What great value for money. The only thing we were disappointed with were the beds. They were very noisy whenever we moved in them. The lady at reception was kind enough to check us in, even though we arrived before check-in time.

An old hotel in need of attention

Posted Mar 12, 2015
Pros: The location.
Cons: Add amenities to the room such as AC and a fridge, buy more comfortable beds and add some Wifi repeaters for better wireless coverage.
Location: The fancy Santa Monica Promenade is not too far away, but I recommend visiting the local dive bar around the corner.
The Santa Monica hotel feels like it's an outdated place in dire need of some changes to make it worth staying at. First the good: The hotel is located not too far from the Santa Monica Promenade and the local college. The not so good: The beds are stiff, uncomfortable and make a lot of noise when you're simply shifting around. The bathrooms lack fans and instead have a window that opens to the street so anyone can happily stare at you, going about your business. The rooms don't have a refrigerator which seems like a huge oversight and if you plan to use WiFi to hop on the internet, check your mail, etc., then you have to be extremely patient since the WiFi at this hotel is weak and very slow. The controls for dimming the lights in the room and controlling the fan speed are very hard to press, the closet lacks a door I had hair from what I assume is the maid in my towels, bed sheets and pillow covers and the rooms come with what I would describe as the smallest soap bars ever made. Everything about this hotel screams budget. It's as if the owner is trying to purposely set the bar as low as possible so any change is seen as a massive improvement.

Last minute booking at Santa Monica

Posted Jan 14, 2015
Pros: It's location.
Cons: The rooms were nice, clean and bright. The hotel is looking a bit dated, but that's only on the outside.
Location: The pier. The shops. Bus stop out front. Take out across the road. Very convenient.
We had to change our hotel arrangements at the last minute and the Santa Monica Hotel was available at the time we needed. The hotel was in a convenient location. Our room was clean and light and even had a refrigerator. The hotel staff were always helpful.

It's okay

Posted Dec 31, 2014
Price met our budget. A bit scary and annoying when hearing someone outside was continuously yelling out in the midnight.

Surprised!

Posted Dec 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
Surprisingly it was a very nice, updated and clean hotel for such a good price! But for heavens sake please put some curtains or blinds on the window over the sink that shines directly into the bedroom, specifically right to the bed! We were woken and had to get up a few times just to cover the windows with towels to keep as much light out as we could.
