Just stayed at this hotel for just over a week and were really impressed with the whole set up. The rooms were very modern and extremely clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. It may not be right on the sea front but is in a fantastic location to get around the whole of los angeles as all the... More

We chose this hotel because we have stayed at Best Westerns before and have never been let down yet. We originally wanted to stay by the beach, but couldn't justify the prices. We rented a car (they offer a garage with free parking) and the beach/pier was a short 5-minute drive away. They do not offer breakfast, but an IHOP... More

We stayed here in June fairly basic rooms clean. You can get a shuttle down town or to the beach area. Staff where very friendly and helpful. This is a great hotel for short stay overs as you won't be paying over the odds like most of the others closer to the beach.

Our family enjoyed our stay at this clean and reasonably priced hotel. The hotels on the beach had high costs and we found this hotel as a reasonable alternative. We liked the tile floors in the room instead of carpet which made it seem to be a cleaner room. There is an IHOP restaurant connected to the hotel which we... More

We stayed in this hotel in June. We found hotels in the area to be quite expensive, particularly hotels at the beach. We were only saying in the city for two nights so we didn't want to pay over the odds. This hotel was one of the more reasonable hotels price wise. The rooms were quite basic however, the hotel...

Nice hotel in tourist Santa Monica Ca., though there for family member's surgery. Hotel was clean, rooms exceedingly well kept, great staff VERY helpful and understanding. Small discount given for stay relating to family in nearby Saint John's Medical Center/John Wayne Cancer Center. Parking is at a premium in this area due to beach nearby, etc. Staff was courteous and... More

We loved our stay here - we slept in 7 different hotels in our 3 week trek across the West Coast and loved our stay in the Best Western Gateway Hotel. Pros - Great location, lovely rooms, free parking, complimentary shuttle to the shops/promenade area which also picks you up, by prior arrangement! The staff were really helpful and friendly... More

We were a little frustrated with the cost of rooms in Santa Monica, but since this had decent reviews and was more reasonably priced than anything nearer the beach, we decided on this hotel. We could not have been more pleased when we arrived. The desk clerk was very helpful--willing to check us in early and providing local maps and... More

We stayed 3 nights here as a base for our time in LA arriving from the UK. Santa Monica and Venice sea fronts are a short drive and the location is good for Beverley Hills, Downtown, the Getty, Hollywood and Malibu. The rooms are clean and quiet. Parking (and wifi) is free which is very important in LA. We enjoyed... More
