We arrived early after a long haul flight and were thrilled our room was ready. Complete with home baked cookies. Very comfortable room, friendly staff and use of bikes was fun to ride along the pier. I was pleasantly surprised and would recommend for couples. We were in the ground floor room.

We expected so much and were sorely disappointed. We are happy to pay the fare but expect a certain level of service. It is obvious that the owners are not at the Inn. The baked goods are great but attentive service is preferable. Heather was the only Innkeeper who was trained in Customer Service. The air conditioning at the Inn... More

Channel Road Inn is just a wonderful stay in Santa Monica. Just a little bit off the beaten track you'll find this wonderful Inn. The staff is wonderful, the rooms beautiful and the amenities are just great. We have stayed here 3 times in 5 years and loved every time. It really is a home away from home.

This little hotel is situated a couple of miles from the center of Santa Monica. It's within walking distance to the waterfront and just down the road there is 3-4 good restaurant. The rooms are OK and the service is very friendly. You can enjoy wine and snacks every afternoon free of charge.

I preempt this by saying I travel 4 months of the year on business all around the world. I'm tired of the same old corporate soulless hotels. This was a breath of fresh air. A super person building. I wasn't on business but with the wife. Really good communication prior to visit. Really please with the look and very pleased... More

We stayed a couple of nights and it was comfortable but the room (#7) was a bit small really given we had 2 suitcases. These were heavy and I had a sweat up once I had carried these up to the 3rd floor.

We stayed one night in Santa Monica at the beginning of our trip up the Pacific Coast Hwy. I loved this inn, I felt like I was staying at someone's house! The staff was welcoming and the inn was so pretty and comfortable. They had complimentary wine and cheese in the evening and tea and coffee whenever needed. I wish... More

Staff very friendly, gave us a tour of the house. The cookies waiting for us were a nice surprise! Complimentary tea and coffee whenever we wanted as well as wine and snacks at 5pm was an added bonus. Rooms were very cosy and they had bikes to use free of charge whenever we wanted . Pretty much faultless, would come... More

I spend hours on trip advisor - so we're not disappointed when we arrive at our destination. You won't be disappointed! Difficult to fault- fantastic helpful staff, beautiful old house. We were in the cozy queen room and were very happy with it. This inn was a haven to come back to at the end of some busy days and... More

We stayed three nights after completing Route 66. Charming comfortable surroundings and our room was the garden room at the back and although compact was comfortable and had everything you would need. We were welcomed warmly and shown around. Complimentary cold drinks in a fridge for guests to help themselves and tea and hot water available. Complimentary wine and nibbles... More
