We chose this motel after reading the glowing reviews in Frommer's Los Angeles and here on Trip Advisor. What a great place to stay - would recommend it to friends, and would definitely stay again. We stayed for 5 nights in room 6. The room was tidy and spacious, the bed was comfortable, and we had everything we needed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They let us check in early, by about 3 hours, which was really nice.
The location is great - nicely sandwiched between Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade and Venice Beach, and 2 blocks from the beach. The motel is on Main Street - so there are plenty of neat independent restaurants and shops to check out on foot.
I will say however, this is a budget motel. Don't expect turndown service or any fluffy accoutrements you would get at a high end property. If you are looking for a comfortable room at a good price, this is the place for you. Also, parking is free - which was a treat (used to Seattle hotel parking - blech).
