Santa Monica Stay

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: RECYCLING BIN, FREE PARKING, FREE bREAKFAST.... but the food was not great...coffee OK
Cons: Say it as it is! Email stating cost if courtyard room and not available if not available etc...COMMUNICATION!!!!
Location: Convenient location to restaurants etc...
I was really annoyed because we had emailed a request for a courtyard room and as we had had no reply before we left, we assumed that we had been given what we had requested. On arrival we found that it was not available and that we would have had to pay more ( we were not aware of this) We had to stay as we had arrived from out of state with no alternative. We were told " sorry but it was only a request" to placate us. If we had been emailed before we had left our home country we could had decided on a course of action based on knowing that a courtyard room was not available. Given this, the room was OK but could have done with a good dust! I did like the RECYCLING bin as we are ECO conscious. BUT why not have the same in the dining room??? And why not have some non sugary foods for breakfast.... come on...it is Santa Monica!!!!! D&A

Nice Hotel close to the beach!

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: The hotel staff is very polite and professional, they also serve breakfast untill 10:00 A.M.
Cons: If you have lots of bags or have a health issue get a ground floor room. There are no elevators that's why I gave them a 4 for facilities.
Location: The location is great close to the beach tons of restaurant's and bars near by. There are two great restaurant across the street walking distance.
We had a great time spent three nights in this hotel and had a great time. The rooms are well kept and very clean.

Good location for a quick stop-over

Posted Apr 7, 2015
We only state the night and I must say the staff are fantastic. The key issue I had with the facility was the advertising of a free High-Speed Wi/Fi service. That was not our experience. I did make a call to the service provider who after a few goes, we got an adequate service, with less dropouts than what we originally experienced.

Reasonably priced hotel, about 3 miles the beach

Posted Apr 6, 2015
We had a very short layover in LA between 2 long flights and this hotel was reasonably priced. There is nothing much around the hotel itself but it's only about 3-4 miles to the facilities and entertainment at Santa Monica and the beach (there is a bus that stops just near the hotel, $1 fare). We were also able to organise a pickup from there for a tour of LA, Hollywood, Rodeo Drive, etc.

FRIENDLY STAFF GOOD BREAKFAST SELECTION PROVIDED

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Pros: Staff was responsive when we advised that the shower curtain was missing. Room was clean and quiet. Plenty of free parking. Provided free breakfast.
Cons: Beds were a bit firm.
Location: Close to bus stop that drops off at the beach, close to fast food, although street is busy, could not hear traffic from the courtyard.
Staff was friendly, room was clean, only stayed one night, did not have a chance to enjoy the patio. They provided a good breakfast assortment and comfortable lounge to dine. Would recommend due to location. Close to bus station, a Trader Joes and a few fast food places. If in Santa Monica again, would choose them again due to price and level of service provided.

Nice but be aware of parking

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Hotel nicely updated. However the downfall was the shortage of onsite parking-fewer spaces than rooms. We were told later that we could have parked at "Trader Joes" which is just a little further down Pico if we came and got a different parking pass from management. IF ONLY they had written this info in welcome documents so we did not have to be searching at midnight-tired and frustrated! Hope they improve this aspect as the hotel was good otherwise including value.

Start to a coastal vacation

Posted Mar 29, 2015
Pros: location
We flew into LAX for a 10 day coastal vacation and decided to make reservation for our first night because we were getting in late. I usually don't stay at Travelodge hotels. The staff was extremely pleasant and the desk staff moved his vehicle so that we would have a close place to park. We loved Santa Monica and it was a great place to start our vacation.
