We would go back!

Posted Jul 26, 2017
The staff was excellent. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I felt safe and walked 4.5 miles daily. I wish it was close to the beach then it would be perfect.

Free Parking and decent free breakfast along with location made this a great place to stay. The friendliness of the staff and the clean rooms made for a great stay in a place that is a little old and shabby. But well worth the value for the area. Very convenient for LA sightseeing areas as well as the beach and Santa Monica.

What to Expect at this Days Inn.

Posted Jul 5, 2017
The hotel could use an overall cleaning. It's an older hotel. Hallway carpets could be replaced. Room was the cleanest area of hotel. Breakfast was terrible every morning. It's a minimal breakfast not a hardy one. Plus there were fruit flys. And no hand soap at the sink. It's not required but it's a sink in a food preparing area. There should be soap. The bath towels were so old some were falling apart. The hotel needs a makeover. The staff were nice and helpful.

Better than a hostel for the price...

Posted Jun 5, 2017
...when you're on the go and you don't require the high end amenities and the bare minimum will do, then Days Inn at Santa Monica is perhaps the best choice, unless you're comfortable with the local hostel...

Beware of extra fees

Posted May 29, 2017
Overall nice place but lazy staff and has to pay $5 per baggage if you wanted them kept before your stay and after your stay. Big joke

Nothing special

Posted May 18, 2017
Average hotel, nothing special. Free parking. Very few tv channels and terrible internet, and hotel needs an update. As a creature of habit I like to stay at the same hotel when I go back to a place. I probably wouldn't stay at this hotel again.

Cute and Convenient Hotel

Posted May 16, 2017
Pros: Convenient underground parking, room windows can open, "sun deck" on the roof
Location: Easy drive to downtown LA. Close to Santa Monica pier.
I was very happy with this hotel. It has a sort of Art Deco style that makes it stand out among Days Inn hotels. It was comfortable, safe, and convenient located. There is traffic noise from Santa Monica Blvd, so if that sort of noise bothers you, you'll need to close the double windows (I left them open most of the time) or ask for a room not facing the street. The underground parking was very convenient, easily accessed, and never full during our 3-night stay.

Nice hotel but far from the activities

Posted Apr 25, 2017
Pros: The size of the room. The breakfast area and the choices offered.
Cons: Accommodate clients who arrive in advance with a restroom.
Location: The hotel is far from all the activities.
We appreciated the possibility to park the car before the registration time. But didn't appreciate the fact that there was not a restroom in the lobby, we were sent to the Macdonald two blocks away because our room was not ready. The room was large, clean and quiet. Enjoyed the breakfast area, clean and large space with tables to eat. The choices were very good. A special thanks to a very helpful clerk, which I forgot his name unfortunately, for valuable informations.
