4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I booked this hotel because of the many good reviews on tripadvisor. To be very honest, when we first arrived, I was a little concerned about the neighborhood. Kelleen and Waheeda (who were very helpful for both days) assured me that the neighborhood was safe. We were in a king size bed room (#104) in the main building, and everything turned out to be very good. The whole place was very clean and the beds were comfortable. One day when returning from the pier, we walked up to Trader Joe's to check it out. It was packed. We then went across Peco Street to a small French bakery. The owner fixed us up with some pastries for the night. Very good. My wife and I both felt comfortable walking around in the neighborhood late in the afternoon. I would stay there again if ever back in Santa Monica.

All very positive. My room overlooked Pico and it was a tad loud but nothing you can do about that. I truly enjoyed the stay

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We stayed for two nights in March 2013. We chose this hotel after reading the tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed.

We booked a queen courtside room, but when we checked in they gave us a room with two queen beds, for no extra charge, which was good, because the room was larger. The room was very clean, the bathroom was clean. There was a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker, iron, hairdryer, free wifi and free breakfast.

For the location, this was the best value in Santa Monica. It wasn't near the beach, but on the main road so the Santa Monica Blue Bus stop was right across the street. The Hop On Hop Off bus also travelled Pico Boulevard.

The breakfast had good variety. I was pleased with the selection.

If I were ever to travel to Santa Monica again, I would stay at the Travelodge as it is good value.

Thank you for your kind words and we are pleased that our location was to your liking. The convenience of the Blue Bus and the Hop on Hop off is a big plus! for our hotel guests. We hope to see you again soon.
