“First-rate hotel in an interesting neighborhood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

We stayed at this property for four nights in mid-December and were elated at the generous value for the price paid. Room features we enjoyed: very comfortable firm mattresses, a well-lit desk, an HDTV, and a very clean atmosphere. We slept soundly every night. The staff is friendly and there is always hot coffee available in the lobby.

We walked the neighborhood and discovered a wealth of attractions: Trader Joes is a block away, the "Unurban Coffee House" is just across Pico Blvd. Venturing several blocks away we found an excellent breakfast-lunch restaurant, the "Crazy Daisy" on 23rd and Pico Blvd. Directly across Pico from this cafe is a good-size Saturday Farmers Market.

We strongly recommend this property. It offers better value than the much pricier beach hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building on the second floor.

I stayed here in December from a Monday to Friday and found it to be really clean, very comfortable with, in my opinion, excellent facilities for a basic hotel. The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. On request for a quiet room in the main building, I was given an ideal & well equipped ground floor room. The breakfast had a good selection and I loved the coffee machine with ground coffee provided in my room! I would certainly stay here again:)

Room Tip: Ground floor facing 31st was quite quiet - you still hear neighbouring traffic but the Blvd. is a m...

First of all, this review will be outrageously biased because we were upgraded to a huge 2 queen-size room at no extra charge for reasons I never understood. So, this is a GREAT hotel / motel. Pico is a busy road, and you are only 3 blocks from the I-10, but because the rooms are well built and, exceptionally for a motel, open onto central indoor corridors, there is no noise. The room was exceptionally comfortable, to the point where I regretted we only had one night. Breakfast was pleasant, although in a small room with limited tables (the upside is you get to share the table and chat with other travellers).
Staff are amazingly friendly.
The only downside is you are on 31st street, which means 28 blocks from the wonderful Santa Monica 3rd street area, but that is so little inconvenience given it's a dead straight line, and that parking is so plentiful and easy at 3rd street.
We paid $131 including 16$ city tax, mid-November rates. I'd come back in a heartbeat. Santa Barbara should hang it's head in shame.

We stayed two nights at Travelodge. We choose that hotel because of his price. 89$ per night in Santa Monica it is a good bargain. Room was small but very clean. Hotel manager and staff were very helphull and let us see the room beforme we made our decision to stay there. Free parking and Wi-Fi. 10 minutes drive to Samna Monica Pier and 15 minutes to Beverly Hills. Safe neighborhood. Few shops just block away. Would stay there agin. Complimentary breakfast was good.

We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in. The room was comfortable and clean. The location was great as you can catch the bus across the street for a couple of dollars to go down to the pier and drops you back right near the motel, the area is quite safe at night and it's on a main road (although we had no noise in room) The breakfast was really good and they even set up little tables outside as the breakfast room isn't very big. The staff were so friendly and helpful and you get free parking... bonus! Would stay again for sure!

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights the end of October and beginning of November. We found no fault with the hotel nor staff. The staff were excellent. The room very clean and comfortable and quiet. The hotel has a very good location for Santa Monica, Malibu and Marina Del Ray. Many choices for breakfast. They have two computers for guests so you can check your emails while away from home. We were there for Halloween and at reception they gave us a bag of treats!!! Good customer service.

Room Tip: We had room 118 in the main building and it was very quiet.
