Stayed at this hotel mid Aug and was very happy with our experience. The room was about 250.00 a night , but it is in a great location. Ihop next door is open 24 hrs and delivers to your room within 30 minutes. Public bus across the street takes you to Santa Monica and Venice Beaches for one dollar on... More

Everything was good at this facility. Good IHop next door with a 20% discount for one of the meals. Nice people and very helpful. Close to Los Angles and Hollywood. Saw the ghost of Clark Gable walking down Santa Monica blvd. All I want to do is have some fun, I know I am not the only one.

The rooms were clean, average of size (stayed in a family room with 2 double beds), mediocre. Pretty old from look. It was good but not more than that. It is 45 minutes walk from the pier. The hotel has a shuttle but mind that the chauffeur apparantly does not like his job. ;) No extra ammendities. Budget wise the... More

We flew into LAX and drove to this Santa Monica hotel (about 15 minutes from the airport). Hotels in general in this area were really pricey as was this Best Western. We found it really "basic" no frills, cheap furnishings, cheap bed linens. But it was clean and staff were really friendly and nice. Since we weren't in the hotel... More

Well located, although the walk to the beach is too long. They have a shuttle service from the hotel to the beach, but not very flexible. The rooms are small and with no charm. No breakfast facility, but the staff is professional and understand customers ( our room was very noisy but they accepted to change our room).

We've stayed here every year for the past 3 years but skipped last year because the hotel was rundown. This year decided to give it another chance. Wow!! The rooms are beautiful, upgraded, modern and clean. I had a room with a king size bed and it was spacious. The lavatory is in the room while the commode and tub/shower... More

Always nervous booking a hotel in a big city but we did it right when we booked this one. The place was spotless. The staff were very polite and super helpful when we kept asking our silly questions about buses and such like. Our room was large and well laid out and when we came back at night, it has... More
