This was one of the cheapest places to stay in Santa Monica and its location near the beach (just one street ) was excellent. Its also a short walk to the shops and restaurants.
The room itself was more like a small apartment set round a small courtyard which was quite pleasant.
Bedding was clean but the bathroom felt a bit grubby/dated as did the small kitchen which we didn't use. The walls/floors are also thin so you can hear people moving around/talking.
However, i am not saying don't stay here, its still a great location, and if the things that bugged me don't bother you it will be great.
Oh they offer free wifi too which is really helpful.
