The rooms are adequate, the design of them is a little different. The kitchen area is a little grim, more of a design issue (dated feel). Considering we had a back room, noise was still an issue at times. But the room was clean and tidy. The price of the hotel is good considering the area. Free limited parking, WIFI... More

After driving past it, I wasn't to keen on the look of the place from the exterior, as it seemed small and cramped and retro, but I had pre-booked it due to is very low rate in comparison to some of the places in the surrounding area. But meeting the kind lady who was in the front room/office, and then... More

First night was terrible because of street noise and people leaving in a taxi at 5:00 am. Trucks! Screaming woman! All hard surfaces so the noise just seemed to bounce off our walls. No transom on bottom of our door so the light came in. Room 1is located right next to the office so lots of foot traffic. Nice shabby... More

It is clean and the beds and linen are comfortable and great quality so we had a great nights sleep. The facilities are great with a small kitchen with microwave and bar fridge. The... More

Pros: very very close to beach, accommodating, free wifi & parking! Cons: amenities-extreme basics-no shampoos, tissues, coffee maker - only provided 2 large musty & smoky smelling towels & 2 little bar soaps. If u decide to stay there because of the affordable price. You should bring lots of things to make yourself comfortable. The shower head is way too... More

Friendly and clean with a basic but nice standard, each room a little different from the other. Stayed for 8 nights, could easily have stayed longer. After two nights got a room with a kitchen so we could cook our own meals. Cutlery and pans existed but were sparse - we bought some that we brought home. Rosa and Jeff... More

Stayed for 1 night over the weekend. The room was clean. The front of house very helpful. The location is spot on. 5 minute walk to the pier and a load of nice restaurants in walking distance. There is complimentary off road parking on a first come first serve basis. $88.00 plus tax. How can you beat that.

Nice, friendly hotel near all of the attractions and the beach in Santa Monica. As others have said, this is not a 5 star, full service hotel, but you cannot beat the location. The rooms are clean, the bed is super comfy with fluffy pillows and a warm comforter. TV is flat screen. Our room had a kitchenette. Bring your... More

Me and a friend of mine stayed here in December and absolutely loved it! We got a great deal on their website, obviously the place isn't 5 star but for the price is great. It's clean and fairly modern. There's even a really cute deck up top which would be a nice area to sit (unfortunately we didn't get to... More
