The hotel was in a great location and clean. I expected more for the money. The staff was friendly, but not very personal... no one really went out of their way to provide you with all available options and services.

Brilliant place to stay, rooms well appointed and clean. Great location. Expensive valet parking when there's a public parking lot just down the road, also water in the room is very expensive too. Breakfast is delicious and the staff give excellent service.

Overall pricey given quality of product and room location. No view from the "balcony" (a 3" ledge) except the hotel wall next door. Close to the beach. Expect to pay as much to park your car every night as it did to rent it. Nice lobby.

Stayed here for three nights on a West Coast road trip. Brilliant location, good for beach and town. Service and facilities were very good. Free use of body boards, umbrellas and each equipment (from concierge) were a very nice touch, as were the bikes and beach chairs. (All first come, first served). The rooms were spacious and modern. Overall we... More

Great location! We had a nice view of the beach/ocean. Friendly service, especially the poolside service. Nice and comfortable rooms, but the rooms and the hotel itself can use some updating. The A/C in our room did not work well during the day. I understand it is peak season and the hotel's prime location, just not sure if it was... More

We stayed in Santa Monica in July as a part of a west coast road trip that we took to celebrate 10 years of marriage.

We stayed at this hotel towards the end of our holiday in California. Other reviewers have indicated that this hotel is expensive but you have to understand that the location of the hotel on the beach means that prices are inevitably going to be high. the view from the hotel at Santa Monica is stunning.
