We stayed here as a family of 4. The room was large, spacious and a half reasonable view out towards the west. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They offered us freshly baked biscuits each afternoon we stayed.
The breakfast was simple but fresh in a nice courtyard with plenty of areas to sit. The hotel itself is about a 5 minutes walk to beach. The pier is at the end of the street along with bars and restaurants along the way. There was a bike rental place next door in which we rode to Santa Monica along the foreshore. There was also under cover parking right beneath the building and if this is full there are more car parks just outside. I would definitely stay there again and recommend to any families.
