I liked that this was very close to the Pier and the boardwalk area. I didn't like that it was more of a Motel than Hotel. Bathroom Window never really closes so all of the street noise come in, as does the wind on a cold evening.

Property was extremely old and in poor condition. Loud crowds cursing and yelling out behind rooms until 4am. Charged $33.00 to park on grounds. Very unfriendly staff that barely understood English. Could have easily stayed in much nicer property for less $$$ than this place. Advertising was very deceiving!!!

I will start off by saying that the walking proximity to the beach & pier is awesome and worth staying here for a more “budget friendly” option compared to other near by hotels. I would probably stay here again. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The girl that was handling check in/out was nice. Some of the downsides of this hotel: The AC unit in our hotel was leaking. Within it being on for 30 mins, it created a puddle on the floor between the bathroom & bed (which was a small space, big enough to just barely walk through). We brought this up to the front office and they only offered two extra towels & to turn off the AC when not needed/out of the room (mind you we were there during a heat wave). The towels soaked very easily & it was annoying to have to walk over a puddle every time we got out of bed or tried walking to the bathroom. The parking lot is extremely small. We had a SUV and so did the other few people who parked there. You have to pull in your space all the way forward or else other cars can’t go through the small driveway behind the parked cars. We barely had enough space to open our car doors. While on our last night, the car parked next to us actually got hit knocking off their tail light. There is a city parking lot right next door that you can use for half the price of the hotel. But one night, we heard two parties getting into an argument because one backed into the others car- so either way, parking is very tight.

The location is great. We stayed one night. It’s an older style hotel, but fun and less expensive than many other corporate hotels.

It looks more like a retro motel than the fancier properties in the area, but it had everything we needed at a much more reasonable price. The building was charming and clean. The staff were excellent and helpful. We even got a refund in price difference when we discovered that the on-day rate was cheaper than what we had paid when we booked with Expedia months ago. They held our bags after checkout until we were ready to collect them for the airport. Great location and service for a (comparatively) reasonable price!

The property was clean and close the Santa Monica Pier. The a/c was not really working and since we only stayed one night it was not noticeable until we came back into the room later.
