This is a nicely remodeled and updated find, right across from the SM Pier and maybe the best value on Ocean Ave... The place was spotless inside and out! The front desk managers where all helpful and most were warm and quite friendly. I will return and can recommend it, BUT... Our room had two beds, although very comfortable, made... More

This hotel is in an a great location, opposite the Santa Monica Pier. We had a room with a view of the beach, a little balcony to sit out and watch the sunset. Room was clean and modern.

Feels quite safe here & hotel is more than fine without being flash. Only picky suggestion is some of the staff could be more friendly & smile at you when you are smiling at... More

I stayed at this hotel on business as it was centrally located and less expensive than most of the other hotels in the area. I would equate the room and the hotel in many ways to A Loft style. My only two complaints were they were re-doing their parking lot so there was no on-site parking (which seemed limited anyway),... More

Great spot in Santa Monica opposite the pier and close to the shopping promenade, small hotel which has been tastefully renovated, staff were very helpful. A bit noisy due to construction work nearby. Good size rooms with comfy beds. Would recommend this one.

Stayed for 1 night on a Friday in September 2014. The price prior to arrival matched the price at checkout - there were no hidden fees, but I did pay the extra $33 for parking which was advertised online. The rooms looked exactly as they did on various websites including the hotel's site. Positives: -Newly remodeled rooms with fresh paint,... More
