I arrived at 8:00 to check in. The only available room was a small, hot room with wrinkled, dirty sheets. No air conditioning. I exclaimed to the surly receptionist that it was a terrible room and that I was a return customer. She basically told me tough, I could move in the morning. Having looked at the sheets and condition of the bed, I slept in my clothes. They did move me to a different room the next day that was marginally better. However, for the price - quality ratio was way out of sync, It was extremely expensive and not worth it. No AC, no coffee machines in the room; a ceiling fan, and cheap blanket made it an unpleasant stay. I could not recommend this motel. Santa Monica has a lot of nice hotels some for less less money, some for a little more, some for a lot more, but at least the sheets will be clean and all the staff friendly.
