Safe and clean property and costs less than most places in Santa Monica. The only thing a little odd is that in Nov 2022 when most hotels have moved on from the pandemic this one still has front desk staff wear face masks, and breakfast is in to-go baggies instead of in a breakfast room. FYI parking fees are $16/day.

Pros: Room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. It was about a 20 minute walk shopping and Santa Monica Pier. Cons: We didnt have a hair dryer in the room when we arrived. When we called down to front desk they argued about it being in the room and told usto look around. Eventually they got us a hair dryer later the next day. Also, they had a coffee maker in the room but you had to go down tothe lobby to get a very small cup of coffee. They only had the coffee between certain times. At check in i was told only one night would be charged to my card as a deposit and at checkout they can split the payment between myself and my mom's card. That didnt happen the full amount was charged and they didnt know if they could even do split payments.
