Very pleasant stay at a convenient location!

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: Helpful, polite staff, clean building and well-cared for rooms; comfy bed linens and towels. Located near a lot of fun shopping/eating places.
Cons: I was surprised that they only change the towels once every five days or so. Then I realized why -- Calif. is having a drought!
Location: Perfectly located: easy drive to LAX, Universal Studios, Griffith Park, Hollywood, Beverly Hills/Rodeo Drive, Hollywood, Malibu & other beach cities.
This Travelodge was great -- friendly, helpful staff; very clean and neat room; comfy bed. It's a quiet hotel in a quiet area with pancakes, bagels, toast, boiled eggs, and cereal for breakfast. It's very near the beach and the 3rd Street Promenade -- you can easily take the bus there if you prefer not to drive. The front desk staff give you an easy-to-read map of Santa Monica when you arrive, with local attractions showing, and tell you what bus to take to go to the main part of town (near the beach), and where to catch the bus. So helpful! If you're driving, there's plenty of city parking structures to use that are low-cost and convenient. The Pier and the Third Street Promenade are a lot of fun, and so is the beach. Even if you only stayed in Santa Monica the whole time, it would still be a really fun vacation. But there's a lot to do and see within a 30 minute drive. I would stay here again -- I definitely recommend it as a very nice place, especially as it's nowhere near as expensive as so many other hotels in the L.A./Santa Monica area.

good location and good value

Posted Jun 25, 2015
Pros: Location, price
Location: Not close to the beach
Just a brief overnight stay in the area. Economical, not luxurious but, it's Travelodge! Room was clean, parking on site (and no expensive valet), small kitchenette convenient and very adequate. Wouldn't spend a week there but a pleasant experience served our purposes well.

Basic hotel 5k from Santa Monica Beach

Posted Jun 21, 2015
This hotel is 5km from Santa Monica beach, so you need a car or can take the blue bus for $1. It is on a busy road, with limited restaurant facilities nearby, but a good food market next door. The hotel is dated, but has comfortable rooms and bathroom. The air conditioning is very noisy which is difficult when you need to keep it on all night. The breakfast is nice with bagels, toast, cereal and pancakes. Next time I would prefer to pay more and stay closer to Santa Monica.

Decent hotel close to UCLA and beach.

Room was clean, staff was pleasant, just a little dated. We were there for just one night. Would stay again for a quick overnight.

Excellent Value, Great Staff

4 miles from beach, but getting around is very easy with busses to beach or downtown every 15 minutes within one block of hotel. Hotel facilities very good.

Enjoyed our stay. Staff was overly polite and provided info on things to do in the area. Rooms were a little outdated, but comfortable. Good value!
