Glad we stayed here
Clean, basic hotel that offers a reasonably priced room. Close to all that Santa Monica has to offer without the crowds of the beachfront. Very accessible to SoCal sites. Hotel offered a bag breakfast. Restaraunt next door was crowded for dinner.

Best Value for Your Stay!
Booked this hotel hours before my stay. This was a random trip to Santa Monica. Booking this hotel was extremely easy through Hotels.com. The price for the room was the lowest stay I could find in the entire area. Just some heads up this isn’t a large high rise building, therefore you will not have an ocean view. Most views are “city view overlooking nearby buildings which isn’t bad either. I knew this before arriving. Checkin took five minutes, the lady working the desk was amazing! She showed me a map with nearby places to eat/drink/socialize and how far the pier was. (35 minute walk) The room itself was very clean, and nicely updated. The floors are modern hardwood style, white window wood shutters, cozy bed. Parking and WiFi was also free! They do have an attached bar/restaurant to the hotel however it’s closed Sundays and Mondays so unfortunately I wasn’t able to eat or drink there as it was closed. The entire process from start to end was a breeze, nice area, and overall you will get the best value for your stay at this hotel. I tried looking the entire area but their rates here cannot be beat!
