Great to have free internet, coffee and tea.. I loved that Ocean... More

This place is great a hotel for many reasons. It's clean, the people who work here are really helpful but most of all it is the BEST location in Santa Monica. Beautiful view of the ocean and the beach is right across the street. Really great pricing as well, so reserve early. The service here is top notch, last visit... More

We stayed here after a long drive from Las Vegas, the start of our honeymoon and our grist stay as part of our toad trip! We stayed for two nights. We were greeted by a friendly valet (sorry I did not catch his name, but he was very helpful our whole stay). As we arrived in the lovely reception area... More

Pros: The hotel was recently renovated- new/clean hallways and rooms. We had the furthest room from the elevator, which has an uninspiring view of the interior valet parking lot (and little light), but it is a big room with a great bathroom with a sliding glass door to the room and 2 his/her Moen rain shower heads in the shower....

We had 3 nights in an ocean view room on an upper level to start our holiday in the USA. The room was well appointed and well presented and the staff cheerful and most helpful. The hotel is well situated across the road from the Santa Monica pier and beach, handy to bus routes including the hop on and off... More

A good hotel very close to the Santa Monica pier, but still a pretty quiet hotel with helpful staff and parking in the hotel for $33 per night. Good dining just along the street, a little pricey though, but everything seems more expensive in this area. We can really recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed three nights in an 'ocean view' room. A very fresh and tidy room, with a great balcony overlooking the Pacific. Happy hour on the balcony every night, watching the sun set, before venturing out for dinner. Lots of very good restaurants up and down the street. The hotel is close to lots of good shopping, including the Third... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
