The room was spotless clean and comfortable. The position even if it doesn't seem nice cause it's on a busy main road, is actually perfect to go to the beach or downtown Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and downtown L.A. are just a few miles away.

Good sized room, which felt clean. Location was great. Nice seating areas outside the rooms, where we chatted with the neighbors and relaxed in the shadow. Decent food options near by. It seemed a little expensive, but compared to other hotels in the area, it was cheap.

Very nice little place, very friendly person at the front desk (Janely). Got us a nice room with short notice...only complaint is that if you have a room near the road it can get a bit noisy. Also it gets a bit stuffy in the room with only the ceiling fan.

Stayed at Santa Monica Motel for four nights. Room was large and clean, and had new bathroom. Comfortable bed. Staff was extremely nice and helpful, location was central with short distances to beach. Free parking:) Very good value for the money!

Me & my wife stayed here for a week. We found the motel with no problems at all, just get the free airport bus to the LAX tranportation hub & catch the Big Blue Bus No3 from stop 12 ($1 fare each) & just under an hour later get off at the corners of Pico & Lincoln Blvd's & you'll... More

I give this property a high rating for the value, rather than the quality. I've stayed in Santa Monica a few times and always paid the high price to be near the beach. I went the cheaper option this time and stayed at the Santa Monica Motel. It's a 15 minute (easy) walk to the beach and probably another 10... More

We stayed one night at this motel in the summer of 2013. The room was clean and quite comfortable, although it was a bit small. We were sleeping 4 people in about 10m^2 in two double beds. Upside: Quite close to the beach, and the distance is walkable.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
