I checked in tonight and was excited at check-in when I was told I was upgraded to a room with an ocean view. Well, in order to see the ocean I need to look out over the construction area of the pool deck. And, the king bed I reserved is not available so I am in a tiny single bed.... More

I'm currently two nights in to a 5 night long stay at this property. When we called to book several weeks ago we were told by the reservation department that they would be cleaning and painting the pool and it would be out of service. No big deal as the beach is right there and it's not prime swimming season... More

Stayed here 10 years ago, and still not disappointed, Customer service was excellent. They sent wine and cheese to our room for the first night we arrived and a birthday cake on my husband's birthday at no charge. Room was very clean, view was breathtaking. One thing to keep in mind do not get a room next to the elevator... More

If you are looking for a nice and quiet place to spend the weekend....stay away!!! The pool area is currently on construction until February so you will be enjoying the noise of the jack hammer all day long. Terrible experience.

We have made arrangements during this time for all of our guests to utilize the pool facilities at the 4-Star hotel next door. In addition, we still have full direct beach access and will have additional beachside amenities available for... More

Very friendly service at front desk, we were able to check in early. Breakfast was really nice in the restaurant. Beautiful views over the beach and pier. Loved the complimentary Fiat 500 for 3 hours a day. Loads to do close-by during our 3 night stay. Only disappointment was the pool area, it was smaller than it looks in the... More

Its a great place, with an amazing pool and a great outside area. It's great to hang out at this hotel and I would always come back there. Also very close to the Beach in Santa Monica, so a perfect location.

We stayed there in September which is a fine time to be in LA. The pool is great and the beach is a short sandy walk away. On my first morning I grabbed a paper from the front desk, got croissant and coffee. The sun came up behind me as the waves rolled in. Couldn't have been more relaxing. They... More

Overall, very satisfied with this property. Very comfortable and well maintained guest rooms, on-site pool with great views, very close to nearby restaurants and attractions (including the bike and walking trail). Extremely satisfied with the service provided by the hotel staff. Highly recommend this property.
