“For the Most Comfortable Bed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We have stayed in this hotel for 6 nights and it was amazingly comfortable and customer friendly. The rooms are very clean, the bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on (I still miss it), room service is very helpful (even organizing the room which is very critical if you are a tourist and a bit messy :)), there is IHOP next door where you can have a quick breakfast and most important of all: The parking is free. The staff is very helpful, when we could not find a parking place since we arrive late; the let us leave our car by the front door. Moreover, there is free wifi and the connection is really good. We appreciate the service quality of Best Western. However the room charge is high, above the average.

Within walking distance (3 min) to the hospital and if you want a nice long walk - 20 blocks to the ocean and the pier in Santa Monica. Hotel was very clean and the staff extremely helpful. I would recommend this hotel. Walking distance to lots of restaurants.

Very convenient hotel, 15 minutes walk to the Santa Monica promenade, much more valued than other hotels; rooms are very clean, and parking and in-room wifi are free. Breakfast / lunch / diner are served at the IHOP restaurant next door, with a 20% off the diner for the hotel guests.

Stayed at this venue as it was close to a wedding we attended. Close to shopping and eating and very pleased with staff and overall accommodations. We especially liked the fact that we were able to park our vehicles on the property in a subterranean garage and that there was a restaurant attached to the property.

Clean, spacious room and friendly staff. Free parking and free wifi available.

Quite a long walk to the beach with not a lot nearby but a shuttle is available at certain times. Hard to use without a phone to organise pickup though. Seemed rather overpriced at $270 USD a night.

Wood floors make the rooms very noisy when the hotel puts you directly below a housekeeping room that is up moving around all night. No housekeeping services were done for 2 days until I called to get service after two days without new towels. Good pricing, but no sleep...too noisy.

This property is the perfect blend of value and quality. We attended a wedding in Pacific Palisades and stayed at this Best Western for one night. It was one of the most reasonably priced in the area and included free parking. Our room was clean, modern, and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
