We stayed at the Palm for 7 days in November '22 to attend the AFM. We were warmly welcomed by the property owner, who took the time to provide a map and outline the routes and areas of interest. The area is very walkable and has access to great transportation routes. The place has a lot of charm, would definitely stay again and recommend to friends looking for a great place to stay on a budget in Santa Monica.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Amenities
I thought it was a cute set up reminded me of my country Greece. There are few items that need to be addressed one, the pillows were way to soft, there is no complimentary breakfast or any kind of food on the premises, you need to travel a bit of a distance by foot for food of any kind that is not from a gas station. This alone could be dangerous especially at night. For the price $150 a night there should be some kind of amenity. You can pay the same amount at a real hotel with more too offer outside of a scenic view. Otherwise it was not all that bad out of 1 to 10 I give it a 6.
