First impression... Oh dear, but once you get greeted by the friendly owner you're put at ease. He has such passion in his hotel and the area. He wrote a map for us detailing the where abouts of everything. It's such a great location really. Santa Monica pier, 3rd st promenade, Venice. Everything. The rooms are very SOCAL and relaxed. Street noise can be a pain if you're not use to white noise however that isn't a problem for me. Decent sized rooms as this was my last stop before flying back to Melbourne I needed to unpack and repack and the floor space allowed for this to happen.
I love non chain hotels and this place for a family run business comes with charm, personality and some Santa Monica attitude. If you're open minded about the whole experience then you'll become great friends :)
