I feel liike $159 was a little high for a Best Western. But the Santa Monica is just an expensive area. The room was clean. The front desk staff were friendly. Parking and wi-fi were free. There is a safe in the room. I did have a concern with the back balcony. There is a sliding glass door at the back of the room. It is not an individual balcony, it wraps all the way around. It's a nice little area with lounge chairs and a table but anyone can walk through it. Unfortunately we had a room right by the elevators, vending machines and ice. It was so noisy and I had trouble sleeping. The bed was comfortable. Would have been a 5 except for the noise and back door. It is a 1.4 mile walk to the 3rd street promenade or the bus runs right by the hotel.
