Stayed here with Daughter for Spring Break. The hotel has a lot of good reviews from contributors that have only 1 review which is very suspicious. The bad: paper thin walls. Stayed on 6th floor with nice side view of pier. Could literally hear every conversation from adjoining room. Never mind crying baby. We were crying by Morning. Pillows/linens; was... More

we stayed for 3 nights in this hotel last weekend. Two adults and kids ages 14 and 11. Excellent location, right on the beach with wonderful views from the pool and common areas towards the beautiful Santa Monica beach, ocean and Pier. Kids had a wonderful time. The hotel is very nice yet not stuffy. Elegant, but definitely has a... More

My husband and I stayed here in July 2013 for 5 days. It is right on the beach and has great views of the Pier and ocean. The food in the hotel is fantastic. The rooms are in need of renovation, but the main areas of the hotel are nice and well decorated. You can't beat the location of the... More

We had 2 connecting ocean view rooms on the 6th floor. Views overlook pool and were nice. It was nice to have sliding glass doors to open to enjoy the fresh ocean air. The "balcony" is only about a foot deep - just barely enough room to stand on (you could not have a chair out there). There are some... More

This hotel is excellent. Great service and very helpful people working there. We only stayed one night. It is walking distance to the Santa Monica pier and is across the street from the beach. There is a small building in front of the hotel across the street which somewhat ruined the view from the waterfront balcony we had. But overall... More

Used some Southwest Rapid Rewards points to get a free night prior to the L.A. Marathon (wanted to be close to the shuttles leaving for Dodger stadium at Santa Monica Civic Center nearby).

The best part of staying at this hotel, were the friendly staff, manager Randy, and bell hops. That's it! My room, which cost over $1,400 for 3 nights, was dusty, old, paint and wall paper peeling off ceiling and walls. The closest door was stuck and I couldn't open it. The bed was horrible. The controls for the A/C didn't... More
