“Great location Art deco hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights.
The exterior of the hotel is art deco and the lobby area is beautiful but the bedroom was very ordinary. Pipework shows this is an old hotel and we were a little disappointed with the decoration of our room.
However, the staff were very helpful and we enjoyed our breakfasts overlooking the beach and seafront. The location is good, just around the corner are shops and restaurants and the beach is on your doorstep.
We were hardly in our room so
I would recommend it as it offered a reasonably priced family room in a good location.

I was in town on a business trip so only stayed one night. From the time I pulled up to the hotel, the interaction I had with the staff couldn't have been better. Carlos was extremely helpful throughout my stay as was everyone.

I was early and my room wasn't ready yet, but I was able to sit in the lobby and work with great comfort. I had both a small late lunch and dinner on the Veranda. Both meals were good.

The location is great - walking distance to anything you might want to do in Santa Monica.

I had an Ocean Facing room with a Queen Bed. The room wasn't huge but was comfortable and very clean.

I would highly recommend this hotel and hope to stay in it next time I'm back.

We stayed here in early February. The hotel has charm and character. The room is a bit smaller than a "chain" property, but is beautifully appointed - and let's face it, little time is spent in the room!. Our ocean view room was on the second floor, however street noise was minimal. We did not hear a hint of noise from adjoining rooms. The staff could not be more friendly, polite and helpful. The location is perfect - easy walk to everything. Breakfast on the veranda is a must do (cocktails there at sunset not a bad idea either!). Highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: We had an ocean view room - which also faces the street. Higher floors would offer best view and be...

I have stayed and many hotels and by far this was the friendliest staff i have ever encountered. Its is old hotel with lots of charm and character. The location is perfect right on the water and easy walking to eateries and bars. The only down side would be since it is a older hotel there is not a lot of sound proofing. I am a light sleeper and noisy guest in the hall were annoying but in no way the hotels fault. We really loved this place and would recommend it anyone looking for a cool, funky, non-chain establishment type of stay.

We were a little skeptical to this old hotel before arrival - but there as no need for it. Had a very nice stay here. Only 2 nights, but had other places to visit. Booked a breakfast/parking option - and it worked very well. It was only January, but had one of breakfast outside at the patio. Quality on food was very good. Same with presentation and taste. No bad thing to say about rooms. The hotel is from the 1940ish, so have that in mind. But thats what makes it special. When you know this, its all cool. Not cheap rooms, but none hotel along the Santa Monica beach is.... No problem to book this hotel if I one day go back.

Room Tip: Room towards the beach a must

Dear Goofey74,

Mixing the 'old" with the "new", good food and a spectacular destination is a recipe that is sure to please. Taking advantage, as you did, of our Bed & Breakfast Package is a certain to add value to the experience.

We will remain hopeful that you will return one day.

Kind Regards,
