Close to the beach, food, gas, pharmacy and stores

Posted May 8, 2017
Pros: Was close to almost everything
Cons: Fixing the heaters and getting an AC Unit in the rooms
It was an ok hotel but very small especially the bathrooms.

Convenient but basic

Posted Mar 26, 2017
This is reasonably priced for Santa Monica and has the convenience of a classic motel i.e. free parking right outside your room. The area is safe and it's walkable to the beach and there's a frequent bus route along Lincoln Boulevard into town if you want to leave the car behind. The room was clean. However it is very basic - no fridge and no microwave (not even a communal one) and not even anywhere to hang your clothes (I just lived out of my suitcase for four days). The motel is on a main road so it is noisy - my room backed onto the main road and for a lot of people it would be unacceptably noisy so make sure you get a room away from the road if you're bothered about noise. I kind of liked hearing the live bands at the bar across the street but others might find that a problem! The area is safe though and I didn't hear a single crazy or addict the whole time. I was billed incorrectly but I emailed them when I got home and they corrected the mistake without any fuss.

Wonderful and Near Everything!

Posted Feb 20, 2017 on Hotels
I really liked this hotel over all and only have one complaint, really. The front desk was wonderful, the bed was comfortable for the awesomely low price, and the area itself was next to a lot of great stuff. The only negative things were that the cup for the coffee maker in the room had black stuff at the bottom and the towel had some stains on it. Seriously, it was so wonderful otherwise!
