Cons: Beds
The hotel was convenient, clean and people friendly. We only stayed one night on our travels. The only problem was lumpy beds

OKAY

Posted Aug 11, 2017
Pros: The staff was pleasant.
We were going to a wedding and it was fairly close to the venue. That's not bad. I thought it was way to expensive for the type of hotel it is. Any place else that hotel room would probably cost $50 instead of $177. Highway Robbery.

Nice Hotel Safe For Kids

Posted Aug 4, 2017
I took my 17 year old niece and we loved that we could walk to the beach or hop on a bus easily at any time of night. It was a 40 minute walk, or a 10 minute bus ride right from ,3rd Street Prom to our hotel. Staff was extremely friendly and rooms were very nice. Obviously right on the beach would have been better, but we were very happy with our choice!

Way better than expected based on other reviews.

Posted Aug 1, 2017
Pros: Staff, rooms, parking, breakfast
Cons: Hallways look worn.
Location: Near everything Santa Monica. Very convenient to everything.
Alex the front desk guy was so pleasant and helpful. He definitely gets 5 stars. Facilities on the worn side but the rooms themselves were very nice - I was pleasantly surprised with the whole stay. Convenient to everything in Santa Monica. Free garage parking was a plus. Others were 15 to 20 a night. Unless you are looking for something fancy, this place is a definite win.

Not like in the picture

Posted Jul 28, 2017
Pros: The staff were very friendly
Stayed 3 nights there for work. Not what it looks like in the pictures. Ants in the bathroom. It looks like a 13" t.v. on the wall. Very few channels. There is nothing but a shady bar within walking distance for food. But the biggest disappointment is the Wifi. They shouldn't even advertise that they have wifi based on what they provide. I will never go there again. I blame Expedia for not checking out their hotels they supply to customers and they should have seen what a crap hole this was...

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...
