We stayed in Santa Monica Motel for 5 nights. It is 15min walk to the beach. We could not afford a place near the beach. This place is perfect. The room are new and refresh. During our stay, they changed the TV in the room to a brand new flat screen! I stayed in many motels in CA, and I... More

First, I must say that parking can be fairly tricky here. Spots are tight, and you may have to back out to the main street, since turning around may in fact be impossible. At night, we took to ordering a cab since moving the car would just have been too much of a hassle. The rooms are fairly clean, albeit... More

I stayed here for 2 reasons: it was close to the the places I wanted to visit and because of its relative price. I will never stay here again! Next time I will go to a hotel that is farther away and deal with the traffic! I don't even know where to begin with this place...It was the 3rd worst... More

Very clean, helpful staff would stay there again. Not very close to the peri but for $60-$70 a night the walk is worth it! We stayed there at very late notice and the staff were ready to help us check In late at night. There is a club across the road and it can be noisy but we didn't mind.

Loves this place!!! Small, easy to park and find your room. Our room was recently remodeled with big flat screen TVs and all. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Even the housekeeper Gina was wonderful. We are coming back for sure!!!

This motel was our first place to stay in the USA and it gave us exactly what we needed. It is calm and clean, just a step away from the beaches, great location if u are a runner or cyclist. The room was a bit cold and there were no additional blankets, but we managed. Many dining and shopping options... More

We stayed at the Santa Monica Motel when we went to see Totem, the Cirque Du Soleil show at the Santa Monica Pier. At $125 per night, it was the best option as all the other hotels in the area that we found were $289-$500 per night. The room was tiny and definitely no frills. No glasses, no ice machine,... More
