Recently stayed here again. The remodel is really well done. Comfortable beds and the rain shower works well. Apparently valet parking service is scheduled soon which will remedy the tight parking situation. Location cannot be topped.

The only thing to consider is: they are finalizing the remodeling in the corridors, so there is... More

We chose this hotel because it was close to family and it was one of the least expensive right on the beach. I will qualify: it was expensive but less so than others in same vicinity and loction. Good location near the pier and boardwalk. The furnishings were comfy and the bath was nice/refurbished with a modern touch. Only two... More

Stayed two nights here. After decades of staying in Santa Monica south of the 10, we decided to stay near the 3rd St Promenade north of the 10. The rooms have been recently refurbished with new furniture, carpeting, bathrooms, etc. So recently that the mni-bars were not yet functional and the new room numbering scheme was in place using a...

We needed a hotel for 2 days in Santa Monica, we had already had a lovely stay at the Huntley but that was on a 3 for 2 deal, so were looking for something close but more reasonable. We decided on the Ocean View on the basis it was 40% less but the reviews were a bit hit and miss,... More

Yes the room was booked, but not an Ocean view. Back to Expedia who sorted it out. I then Emailed the Hotel asking for a fourth floor room if... More

This hotel is in a prime location!!! The room was brand new! The GM (Steve F.) was amazingly nice and helpful. Parking was cheap and close by. Internet was free! Only steps from the Pier and tons of great restaurants. This is the place to stay! We booked direct and paid $43 less than Expedia! Love it.

I have read some negative reviews about the hotel so we were weary in making reservation. When we arrived a little early, they told us our room was not quite ready. Took a walk down the street and came back and room was ready. We recieved one of the newly renovated ocean view king rooms. Very nice, comfortable room with... More
