Fantastic Santa Monica Base

Posted Sep 4, 2014
Pros: The staff, the breakfast, the location.
Cons: Bigger rooms,
Location: Located really close to a bus stop which takes you directly to Santa Monica beach and pier.
We stayed here for 5 nights on our recent California road trip. Our room was slightly on the small side but was comfortable and cleaned thoroughly every day. The cost of the room includes a self service style breakfast with cereal, toast, porridge, eggs, pancakes, fruit, juice and coffee available, as very nice added extra. The staff at this establishment made the whole experience for us with their unwavering cheerfulness and willingness to help, nothing was too much trouble for them. We would highly recommend the Santa Monica Travelodge to anyone visiting this area.

Nice hotel - not disappointed

Posted Aug 20, 2014
We checked into this hotel and got a room in a locked gate area on the second floor. It was a very nice room and we were very happy with the room. Staff told us we could take the #7 bus to the pier, so we left our car in the parking lot and paid $1.00 to ride the big blue bus. This also allowed us both to have a drink on the pier and not worry about driving. The bus stop was close to the hotel too. We also enjoyed the breakfast offered at the hotel.

The staff was very friendly and helpful! Breakfast was good, just a little congested because the room was small. The parking lot we were in was terrible though. There was no where to turn around to pull into the street! Luckily, other cars had left when we checked out in he morning so we could turn around and leave. Other than the parking lot, everything was great!

Clean but average location. The price is good.

Pros: Price
Cons: Small, needs a face lift
Location: Beaches and Beverly Hills.
Was ok. Easy bus to beach and Beverly Hills. Stayed here because BH and beach were unaffordable.

Better than i expected

Posted Aug 10, 2014
This Travelodge was a lot better than the UK versions, plenty of accessories in the room, very clean, free continental breakfast, free wifi. Los Angeles is so big that the location is hard to say it's good for one place but bad for another. The bus stop to go downtown was a 10 minute walk, and i used a push bike to get to Santa Monica, about 15 minutes away.

Clean, slightly smelly and functional.

Posted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness of the room.
Cons: Reception on the TV
Location: 15 minutes from both of the Getty Museums and LAX. Beaches very nearby with a convenient, inexpensive bus line a block away from the hotel.
Our room fronted a busy street - which turned out not to be a problem with the air conditioner on. The walls are thin but, again, no problem as the people above always went to bed early and quit tromping around. My husband objected to the lack of extra space to relax and the poor reception on the TV. My only concern was the damp smell which, combined with the residual odor from cleaning products, smacked you in the face every time you entered the room. However, the king size bed was comfortable; the room was extremely clean, and the location ideal. The front desk staff were charming, friendly and helpful. We stayed three days at a very reasonable rate for that area of California. The continental breakfast featured white flour carbs, but there was fruit, cereal and yogurt to get you through to lunch. And the hotel was full of Europeans and young people - which I really liked!
