“Great place to stay for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Reasonably priced hotel for the location. Not within walking distance to the beach, but close enough - took about 5 minutes to drive and there is ample parking by the beach. We rented bikes and went to Venice Beach and checked out the entertainment then rode up through Santa Monica - nice easy ride. The hotel is clean and comfortable and has free parking! Staff is friendly and breakfast just enough to get you through the morning.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 3rd floor - no noise from the street or folks coming in and out of hotel

Would have given a five but it is still under renovation so some areas are not cleaned up yet.We took the advice of others and got a room at the back. Room 234 is at the very end of the walkway facing the parking lot. Very quiet. Staff was wonderful. A young man, who I think was there 24 hours a day, was so pleasant everytime we saw him. The kitchen attendant kept the place spotless and was always cheerful.The food was very good - waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal and other items. We were visiting a relative in nearby Westwood and this was a very easy location to travel to and from her home. Heavy traffic in the evening getting on I-405, but very clear after that interchange. It is a couple of miles to the pier, but that was not an issue. However parking downtown is very expensive. $2.00 for 15 minutes in lots. A little cheaper at meters.We ate at the Dragon Palace - recommended by the young man at the desk (I never got his name). It was very good. Right across the street with great service and great food. The one price special dinners were delicious.
Pool has a chair to assist disabled to enter it.

Room Tip: Room at the rear and end of the hall was great.

We booked this hotel for 2 nights because it was the best deal we could get for the quality ...but the Comfort Inn Near the Pier is a bit of a misleading misnomer....the hotel is actually around 26 blocks from the beach area....that said the room was good-sized & fine, linens clean & fresh & great sized bathroom. Good sized fridge. The staff were very helpful.
Breakfast was better than the average Choice Privileges hotels although the breakfast room was small there is a lovely little courtyard area outside to dine al fresco if you like.

Dear WishIWasSailing,
We appreciate your review of Comfort Inn Santa Monica! It is great to hear you found our staff to be helpful and the rooms clean. Our staff works very hard and takes pride in providing outstanding service to all hotel guests. I do apologize if our name was a bit misleading. We always try our best to explain that our hotel is located two miles from the Santa Monica Pier, and it is unfortunate that you were disappointed regarding this matter. We hope you found our location to be convenient and will return on your next trip to Santa Monica.

King regards,
Jennifer Calderon

Clean and comfortable to stay and convenient place to trip around Santa Monica, Getty Center, Villa, UCLA and beach. Fresh breeze from the Pacific Ocean, warm and beautiful, quite and kind! Wonderful breakfast and coffee. Friendly and kind staff. Stayed for 16 nights and fully satisfied. No doubt to stay again whenever comes to Santa Monica.

Room Tip: Rooms on 2nd has a yard to rest and talk, feel the fresh breeze from the Pacific Ocean. Rooms on 3rd...

We were there on December 28th, 2012. The building has an elevator, pool, lawn chair, breakfast room (small).
Continental breakfast includes: scramble eggs, bacon, sausage, 2 or 3 kinds of juce, milk, yougurt, toast, butter, jelly, fresh frut, waffles, hard boiled eggs, dounuts, overall an exelent breakfas. Rooms are clean, the internet was verry poor, front desk was unable to help on that matter, you have to call someone else to have it fixed. Beside that everything was good.
I will stay here again.

Went on vacation for New Years Eve and booked the room since the price was cheap. The room was super clean and had no odor whatsoever. Felt comfortable enough to walk on the carpet without shoes(rarely does that happen!). I usually bring my own pillows but they supplied plenty and the bed was super comfy!! Will DEFINITELY stay here again. Lots of places to eat and the pier was less than 10 mins away. Lots of closet space, nice bathroom, flat screen t.v. and there was a nice open area with covered tables, which would be nice to sit out during the summer.

Room Tip: Had a corner unit
