We stayed at this hotel last weekend. There is nothing fancy about it but the rooms are nice, pretty clean (a couple of spots on the carpet but mostly seemed clean) and most of all, the location is great! It is right across the street from the pier and the beach, and very close to some great little restaurants and places to shop. One thing to be aware of: If you are a light sleeper, you don't want to get a beach-view room. The beach-view rooms are great during the day, but at night the clubs and bars nearby get a bit loud. We could definitely hear the music as we were trying to sleep, but I am a pretty hard sleeper so it didn't bother me that much. We even had 2 babies in the room with us and they slept just fine.
I always think it is ridiculous when hotels that you are already paying for charge for parking, and this hotel charges $20 per car to park, so that was a bit annoying. However, I would stay there again if we went to Santa Monica because it gave us what we needed for a reasonable price. I booked this room through a travel site and it would have actually been cheaper to just book directly through the hotel, so I recommend just calling to ask their rates before using a travel site to book.
