“Budget Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We have stayed at the SM Travel Lodge on various occasions for the past 9 years - Says it all!!
This is a gem of a budget hotel
Great location - 2 excellent restaurants, a 50's diner, great coffee shop and Trader Joe's all within walking distance! Access to I-10 freeway a few blocks east. Several blocks west along Pico the best breakfast place in LA ;The Lazy Daisy
Rooms are well kept, clean, - Would recommend the gated area which has a pretty palm coutyard and barbecue pits for guests' use. FREE PARKING !!
Will use agina and again!

Room Tip: Choose a room in the gated area!

Location is great to both Santa Monica Pier and Los Angeles city centre or anywhere is this county. Good rooms, free parking, free Breakfast (try to seat outside very nice). And free Ice Machine!

Having tried different Travelodge's on the Californian West Coast, Santa Monica's was the best one. We stayed for a week and met people from noth US and Europe. There is a 'Traders Joe's' shop conveniently located just around the corner where you can stock up on groceries, drinks, etc.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff suggest activities and tours. This was our base to visit, Downtown LA, Hollywood studios, Disneyland and the Orange County.

Will revisit if possible

I stayed four nights at this travelodge and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Don't let it put you off that the hotel's a little out of town because they have an excellent bus service that runs to Santa Monica Pier (line 7) The reception staff were really helpful and very friendly, in fact they couldn't have done more to help! Breakfast is free but I can't comment on that as I didn't have it. The room was great, much better than a two star in my opinion and the house keeping was done to a very high standard every day. The only negative I have is that the walls/floors are very thin, you can hear everything in the rooms next door/above/below. The fridge and microwave were a welcome surprise too!

Great hotel. Will come back, Our only problem was that the air conditioning was right next to the bed and we seemed only able to choose between stuffy and freezing. Doubt that you can do much.

We lived on the west side of Los Angeles for 40 years and visited there after an absence of 13 years. We visited old friends and familiar places some of which had undergone changes or totally disappeared. We were very pleased with our accommodations at the Travelodge in Santa Monica. It was very good value for money and conveniently located. The staff were very accomodating, the rooms were clean and the breakfast adequate. Hopefully we will be back before too long and would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone visiting L.A.

This was a great hotel for the price and I would highly recommend it to others. We stayed in the suite and it was perfect for little kids!
