Really nice place, room is bigger than an actual hotel room, staff are very helpful and close to everything. If you have a car, you always find parking, if it’s not inside, you can find outdoor. Definitely recommend this place

Overall this was an adequate place to stay while visiting the Santa Monica area. The vibe is similar to a hostel. Kudos for cleanliness of the room. Furnishings inside the room are spartan. Simple is good, but there were few places to store things like night tables or shelves. Wish the reservation and check in were serviced by people on the property in a more hands on way. Any questions I had about changing dates of our stay or amenities were answered by remote employees that I gather are not on the property. We had confusion about our reservation between Expedia and Sonder which had to be rectified on the day of our arrival. Being given a "check in code" via email to enter the building and for our room was ok, but a bit cumbersome to punch in a six digit code every time we entered the building. This property probably best for single people looking for a simple place to stay.

Stayed for two nights. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Room and bathroom looked clean, Ac worked, tv was good. Unfortunately, there were bed bugs and that is unacceptable for a $200 a night place such as this.

This hotel looks nice online, but it's not. The carpets were visibly stained, everything was dim so guests can't see how dirty it is, and it's incredibly loud. Very few amenities, and staff that's never at the front desk.
