I'm shocked at some of the positive reviews on trip advisor, I genuinely thought it had pretty on the nose reviews. But after coming here based on the reviews I read, I'm fairly pissed off. First of all this place is way too overpriced and this isn't just coming from my experience but also many other Americans we met that... More

This motel was just OK, but it was within our budget and seemed central enough for our quick two night stop over in LA. The location was good for us, less than 10 minutes drive to Venice Beach, 10-15 minutes to Santa Monica, 30 minutes to Hollywood (obviously depending on traffic). The bed was clean and comfortable and the bathroom... More

Stayed here while on a 2 night stopover from Europe to New Zealand. Clean room, comfortable bed, no poon on TV. Plenty of eating options near by and good whole food shop a short walk away. Enjoyed a walk on Venice beach. would happily stay here again.

The motel is 15 min walking from the ocean, but you can also take the bus which stops right in front of the motel entrance and it takes you to Venice and santamonica. You can park right in front of your room and the room was big and clean as the bed. The lady at the reception was very nice.

This place is very good for a short stay - I was here for three nights and it was very comfy and clean. I had a small bench area which had cupboard space, a bar fridge and a microwave - it wasn't a kitchenette though - so don't expect this. The room and bathroom was very spacious and comfy -... More

Rooms are good, especially for what you pay. Not cheap of course for LA prices is it good value. Location very good, walking distance to almost everything in Venice, even it's better to use car in LA. For longer stay than 3 nights some things are missing, for example you don't get hangers. And receptionist should be kinder, it doesn't... More

I own a condo in Santa Monica and I needed a place to spend a couple of nights while I had my floors refinished. To my surprise there is a wonderful place to stay very close to the million dollar landscape of Santa Monica. Very clean, comfortable , state of the art TV, all this for an incredible $85 a... More

My first impression (seriously) of the street view of the hotel was, "Oooh, what have I done?" But as you enter the gate of the hotel, the scene changes drastically. First, it's a cute place. The staff is very friendly in checking you in and can answer your questions about the area. You are about a 1-mile walk from Venice... More

Stayed here because everything closer to Venice Beach was 3- 4 times more money and or booked up. Big mistake. VERY VERY VERY dirty. I mentioned this to the owners when we left and told them in the politest way possible and they got angry. Argued that it was very clean. Yikes
