Stayed 3 nights. We were in LA visiting family. Room 304 was perfect. We had a separate kitchen and decent sized bathroom. Room and facility were immaculately clean.
2 good and inexpensive restaurants across the street and down one block, Rae's and Lara's.
The neighborhood seemed safe.
There is basically no ambience at this property, but the value for Santa Monica is great. I'd get a room not on Pico.
We'd stay here again.
