I've traveled for my company quite a bit and have had accomodations prescheduled through my office never knowing what to expect on arrival. I usually don't bother to take the time to share my experiences however I decided to make an exception for Santa Monica Motel. Upon arrival my very first visit I was greeted by as very friendly Staff... More

I knew this place would be a little old motel. It was! Nothing too quaint or cute about it. The room was sparse and pretty clean. No fridge, not a lot of outlets, smaller beds, dated furnishings... But - the staff was really sweet and helpful. The price was hard to beat in the area for a quick overnight with... More

STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS MOTEL! You are better off sleeping in your car. I received a phone call that my relative passed away the first night staying there. I spoke with the lady at the front desk about how we needed to leave tomorrow morning to drive back up to Seattle and that we won't be able to stay... More

It only had a ceiling fan, which just moved warm air around the room. None of the rooms have air conditioning so it was quite hard to sleep at night. It has only shampoo and soap, no cups, some towel had stained. Only stayed one night and moved to another hotel.

This place is terrible. Period. There are similarly priced places fairly close by that are better kept and quieter. We had a downstairs room. It was NOISY and HOT. The furniture was not well kept up - stained. Even the lobby chairs were so stained, I would not sit on them. There was a machine - maybe a washing machine... More

Stayed for 3 nights in September 2013. My girlfriend and I had a room each upstairs and opposite each other. Rooms where newly redecorated, very comfy, great shower, plenty of room for the shopping! We loved how convenient this Motel was to everything, we had a car. Not sure about the public transport. Loved Santa Monica, so glad we chose... More

The rooms were comfortable and clean. We had to get code for wifi every day. There are not that many places to eat nearby but the buses run frequently and are inexpensive. The person on reception in the day was more helpful than the night person.

This motel is situated in a good location and is reasonably priced. It's well withing walking distance of Venice beach and the pier so we left our car in the motel car park, after registering it at the reception. The room we stayed in was clean and tidy however it only had a ceiling fan, which just moved warm air... More

We stayed here one night. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for us. We were within walking distance to restaurants, bars, and the ocean/pier. The staff was friendly and helpful. We'd stay here again.
