Good location with modern, quiet rooms

Posted Nov 27, 2016
Pros: Great location. Clean, quiet and comfortable rooms. Exceptionally friendly staff. Underground parking.
Cons: Could offer coffee in the lobby. Business center computer usage is restricted to 15 min. & you have to get a password from the front desk.
Location: Santa Monica Pier, 3rd St Promenade & Montana Blvd shopping. Short drive to Malibu.
Employees were very friendly. Rooms are modern with comfortable beds, Nothing exceptional. We were there on Thanksgiving and due to my wife not feeling well, did not vacate the room until after 2 PM. Although the housekeeping staff was in the hall, at the room next door when we left the room , they did not clean our room. When we got back late in the evening, I had to go down to the front desk to get clean towels. That was disappointing.

Hotel was nice and in a good location. A bit noisy but has good windows so if they are closed you cannot hear the busy street.

Very, very noisy - inside and out

If you stay here, which is not that bad to stay, Bring noise cancelling head phones (Bose recommended)

Good Buy for a Hotel in Santa Monica

Posted Oct 31, 2016
This hotel is easy to get to from the airport and has a IHOP next to it which can serve all three meals. It has free underground parking and you can walk to stores if desired. The bus across the street can take you to the Pier. I go to LA for business and pleasure (one of my sons lives in Santa Monica) and I always stay at this hotel. It has free internet in the room so I can work on the days I don't have meetings. Although I paid $250 per night, for Santa Monica this is half the standard rate at most other hotels in the area. Overall, I plan to always stay at the Best Western when I visit Santa Monica or LA.

Bon rapport qualité prix pour santa Monica

Troisième séjour ds cet hôtel, et rien a redire, tout est propre, bien organisé et le personnel très serviable. Le parking gratuit est un vrai plus, l'emplacement est pratique car proche du centre et proche de l'autoroute,.

Best value out there.

Posted Oct 24, 2016
The free underground parking alone is a big reason to stay here. Only a few miles from the pier, it offers very clean, contemporary rooms with faux hardwood flooring and a "beachy" decor. The hallways are a bit on the narrow side but the staff is courteous and the rooms are quiet and free of that musty odor prevalent in other value chains. We'll definitely be back here the next time we visit our relatives in Santa Monica.

Noisy and Expensive for what you get

Posted Oct 5, 2016
Location: Santa Monica area is nice with pier and shopping nearby.
Room itself was clean but noisy. Hotel was expensive for what you get. Not sure why it got high ratings on tripadvisor.
