Excellent location

Posted Aug 25, 2015
Pros: Location, location, location
Cons: Some general maintenance needs done. Outlet covers, lights not working correctly, nothing major.
Location: 3rd St Promenade, Santa Monica Pier, Johnny Rockets, decent shopping.
3rd St Promenade and pier real close by. Nothing fancy about the room, but we weren't in it much anyway.

Great location and stay for the cost

Posted Aug 24, 2015
Location is amazing. Bed was comfortable. A few bugs on the floor. Bath/shower a nightmare - water wouldn't go down the drain. Great place if you want to be out and about. Cost is great for the location.

Pros: 立地
サンタモニカピアにはとてもアクセスしやすい場所でした。 立地優先で、価格を抑えたい方にはとても良いホテルだと思います。 しかし、ホテルは、とても古臭く、快適だとは言えません。4 サンタモニカの雰囲気はまったく感じられません。

The location was great!

Posted Jul 17, 2015
My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights to attend a wedding in LA. The room itself was ok. It was small and a little dingy, but clean. We had one king bed and it was pretty uncomfortable. It creaked every time you moved. The bathroom was nice and clean, but absolutely no counter space. The best part of this hotel is the location. It is about a block from the beach, a block from the 3rd Street Promenade and a 5 to 10 min walk to the pier. This is probably about the cheapest hotel you will find that is this close to everything. My one tip is to park your car and do not take it out again. The traffic is absolutely terrible and just not worth it. Just get Uber or Lyft to take you around Santa Monica. It is much less stressful that way

Altes Hotel in guter Lage

Posted Jul 13, 2015
Pros: Nur die Lage war super!
Cons: Verbesserungswürdig ist sicherlich der Lärmpegel im Zimmer, die Inneneinrichtung und der generelle Zustand.
Location: Das Hotel befindet sich in direkter Laufnähe zum Santa Monica Pier und zur Third Street Promenade. Top Lage für den Preis!
Für den Preis war es okay. Viel Personal, dass einem jemand die Tür öffnet erlebt man selten - passt aber irgendwie nicht zum Zustand des Hotels, vieles wirkt sehr alt und muffig. Das Zimmer wirkte auch nicht sonderlich modern (beispielsweise haben wir die Nachttischlampe anstecken müssen, weil der Schalter so kaputt war, dass sie nicht mehr auszuschalten war), man hatte Angst, die Steckdosen zu benutzen, die Klimaanlage haben wir nur kurz ein- und direkt wieder ausgeschaltet und uns entschieden den Deckenventilator zu nutzen. Größtes Manko: Wir hatten ein Zimmer zum Innenhof, wo sich ein Wärmetauscher o.Ä. befand - dieser war unglaublich laut, wir konnten über nacht nicht das Fenster offen lassen und selbst wenn es geschlossen war war es immer noch unverschämt laut! Es gab ein kleines Frühstück in der Hotellobby, bestand aus Kaffee und Hefegebäck. Ansonsten gibt's auf der Third Street Promenade genug Möglichkeiten Frühstück zu finden (allerdings alles sehr typisch Amerikanisch).

Slitet hotell med väldigt bra läge.

Posted Jul 11, 2015
Hotellet ligger väldigt bra till, mitt emellan strand och shopping. Kanske något dyrt om man ser till standarden men som sagt här är det läget man betalar för.

Great hotel for those on a budget.

Posted Jul 5, 2015
Pros: Value for money, location.
Cons: The blinds and windows were a bit dirty.
Location: Great bars, restaurants, the pier and, of course, the wonderful beach. All a five minute walk away.
We had two nights in the Carmel in June. We had a very pleasant stay, the beds were comfy, the facilities were good and the location is incredible. Papers delivered in the morning to your door and complimentary pastries and coffee are a nice touch. Some have said the décor looks dated but I thought it was very pleasant. The only issue we had was with the blinds. Once we opened them we were unable to lower them again, and they were very dusty. But it didn't affect our stay and the hotel is great value for money, especially if you are looking for a couple of nights stop over in the beautiful Santa Monica.
