No air conditioning, had to cut a 4 night stay to just 1 night, as we could not stick the heat.

Great little motel

Posted Jul 10, 2017 on Hotels
Nice hotel located within a short walk from all Santa Monica has to offer. Nothing too fancy, but everything you need for a couple days in the city. Rooms are clean and staff is friendly. Area is safe. Parking may be a bit tight when full on the weekends.

like a house

Posted Jul 9, 2017
This hotel likes a house, so I could be relax, comfortable. It's cheap, but the room was little small, so if you want to save money, you would stay here.

The hotel is nice and good location.

Posted Jul 9, 2017
Pros: Spacious, convenient with the use of microwave etc.
Cons: It would be nice if we could be staying on the second floor.
Location: Walking distance to the beach etc.
The overall experience is fine. Country feel and the office staff are friendly.

Santa Monica Motel was safe, clean and an easy walk to the beach. Reasonably priced for its location.

dreadful, worst stop of our 2 week trip

Posted May 30, 2017 on Hotels
Where to start, pretty dreadful! The guy had lost our reservation on check-in and took an age to eventually find it. then checked us into the worst located room on the whole site. the back wall of the tiny room was on the main road with trucks, bikes, cars rumbling past constantly, meters from the bed. no air con in the room and immediately opposite a noisy bar with music and drunks spilling out all night/morning. on this wall was where the only opening window was located (not that you would risk opening it onto the street). walls paper thin, could hear intimate details of our neighbors and how "messed up" they were planning to get that night. got pretty much zero sleep that night and counted our blessings it was only a single night stay. if the motel is full then good luck parking anything bigger than a mid-size as the paces are tiny. any redeeming features?.... the room was modern and clean and you could just about walk (30 minutes) to Santa Monica pier.
