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.

Don't stay in this hot motel w/no air conditioner!Posted Jun 18, 2014
This hotel has no air conditioner for hot southern California. It is outrageous to pay $190/night for a room with no air conditioner and it's hot in the room with a ceiling fan that turns off when you turn off the lights! Also not even a glass for water. All for $190/night with no view of anything interesting. Never stay in this dump again!

Disappointing for the pricePosted Jun 16, 2014
Although the motel was clean, the room had recently been repainted it was quite basic. It did suit location wise (being on Lincoln Blvd). For the price I would have expected a glass / mug / paper cup and a bottle of water. The TV was wall mounted quite high up - there was no remote which made it difficult watching and changing channels lying on the bed. I probably would not stay again.

Young male speaking the truthPosted Jun 15, 2014
This is a motel so obviously if you are expecting some high quality service your in the wrong place. It's close to Santa Monica beach about a 5-10 minute drive with traffic. The place is okay, I hate that it had no a/c. But it was okay. They didn't have an iron in the room and room service comes really late. If your young trying to save money and are visiting it's worth it. Room is clean, tv had a lt of channels but the volume would only work on some channels.

No cups in the room, front desk clerk almost could not find our reservation despite my copy of Expedia reservation in hand, no A/C, didn't know if it was safe to leave open the windows at night

Blue hotelPosted May 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
The motel entrance is right in the corner so you need to be careful. Trying to exit is just as hard because the entrance is also the exit. Room was clean but there was no phone so couldn't call staff if had questions, needed toiletry, or call local business for food delivery.

fantastic stayPosted May 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stayed there for a night.. Big sized room with all the amenities and a cordial staff.. The best thing about the place is the location.. With just a 15 minute walk to the beach, you cannot go wrong!!! Will definitely come and stay here again..
