“Great location and comfortable Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I stayed at the Wyndham whilst on a business trip and its location next to the Pier and Beach would also be ideal for a family weekend etc.. the hotel has limited facilities but the rooms are comfortable and the wifi worked fine form me. I will use this hotel again if back in Santa Monica - Just a a side note they do not have a Lunch service - though the location next to the strip means there is lots of choice very nearby.

Room Tip: High up 6/7th floor and ask for ocean view - street noise did'nt bother me this high up

The service provided by the young man at the valet desk was awesome. We drove up and he looked after us right away. I lost my visa card and he went out of his way to help me find it, which he did not. I realized I threw it in the garbage in the hotel and Ahmed Saad went through the garbage in the basement for me and found my card. These 2 staff were awesome. The room was clean and comfortable and the location was excellent! 2 blocks from the Pier and about 3 blocks from 3rd Ave. Promenade where all the restaurants and shops are. Would absolutely recommend this hotel.

Horribly slow internet and very loud freeway noise! We got put into a 2nd floor room right on top of the freeway. The place seems like they just re-furnished an old hotel. The windows are still old and let in all the noise. Rooms are small. Yes, it's right in Santa Monica but that's all it has going for it. Not at all worth the price!! Valet is crazy expensive too.

Room Tip: Request a high floor at booking so you are stuck on #2. Also request away from the freeway.

Stayed here for three nights. The location is excellent, a short walk from the pier and third street promenade. The staff are really nice and we were greeted by name and with a smile every time we returned to the hotel. The rooms are fine but nothing special, large comfy bed, tea/coffee stuff, safe, iron etc. the aircon was a little noisy but the real noise was from PCH which runs right by the rear of the hotel. We were on the fifth floor and the traffic was still clearly audible at night. The traffic noise during the day made the pool an uncomfortable place to relax as well unfortunately. If you're heading to the pool to catch some rays, take some music or earplugs with you, lots of horn honking and engine noise which is amplified by the tunnel right next to the pool. The parking is valet only, and at $36 a night, was really overpriced. Firstly, the parking lot is on the hotel property, so valet only is not necessary. Secondly, the parking lot is a fairly standard sized lot, nothing awkward about it, so I'm perfectly capable of parking my own car. Thirdly, the lot was not full so to make extra cash the hotel had a board outside advertising valet parking to the public for $10-which is slap to the face of hotel guests spending $36 a day for the service. The valet guys were all pleasant and got their tips-I'm sure they don't see much of the $36 a day fee and I'm sure they don't set the pricing policy. A little money needs spent to triple glaze the rooms to insulate the road noise, and the parking prices and valet only policy maybe need reviewed. All told though, our stay was fine, and given the excellent location and great staff. We'd consider here again if the price was right.

Room Tip: A room at the front facing Colorado Boulevard will be quieter than one at the back facing PCH.

Stayed here in March this year. The location of the hotel is great, right across from the pier and only a few mins walk to the 3rd street promenade. Rooms were spacious enough for us and clean and tidy. Our room faced the McDonald's across the road and we also had views of the water etc. I'm a light sleeper and I could not hear any noise coming from outside at any time. We booked months in advance and got a really good deal, I think it's quite expensive otherwise. We had breakfast at the restaurant downstairs for the 3 nights we were there. They only have a buffet on the weekends and al carte on the other days. The staff I spoke with were friendly, esp the parking attendants out the front. Wi if was not real good in our room and had a fair bit of trouble with connection etc most of the time. Overall good experience and if the price was right would stay here again.

Stayed March 2014, traveled with friends
