“Wonderful Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Our family of four stayed at Le Merigot for 5 nights and had a wonderful stay. I can not say enough about the friendliness of the staff from the parking attendants to the concierge to the waitresses. We were greeted with bottled water upon our arrival and anytime I needed anything whether it was extra blankets or more coffee cups, the staff was there within minutes. We were given a room upgrade which I did not expect at all. This gave us more elbow room for 4 people on a 5 day stay. The only 2 things I could possibly mention if I had to really stretch for something was that the hallways were always very cold, and that the dresser in the room was a tad on the small side so we were in and out of suitcases most of the week...but I think that's to be expected on a 5 day stay.

The hotel is in a good location in Santa Monica. It is within walking distance to the pier, which is nice. Our room had a partial ocean view overlooking the pool area. The room itself was pretty standard. It was a decent sized room. No complaint. I think what makes a hotel stay a good stay is the staff. I thought everything else in the hotel was just average but the staff helped kicking it up a notch. The concierge was so helpful in helping us with our dining options. We took up his recommendation and had a very enjoyable dinner.

This is a great location and the hotel is very nice. It has a "quaint" feeling to it but has nice rooms and a very good restuarant. Sitting outside at night with a drink is great but sometimes it is hard to get service or is very slow.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony.

We stayed as a family of five and found the location great. We could walk to the beach and pier, which provided a lot of diversity. Plus, plenty of good restaurants in the area and an easy walk from the hotel. I don't think we took the car out of the garage for two days.
We did have a problem with one of our room, but the staff was very good at resolving the issue. Overall, the staff is exceptional and make every effort to make you feel and home and even lend beach chair. The pool is very small, so don't expect to spend too much time at it. If our kids were under 5 and still preferred the pool to the beach, that would have been a problem.

Enjoyed a three night weekend stay while visiting our son in LA. Had a standard street side room, which was surprisingly quiet. Good sized room with robes, higher end toiletries, embroidered linens etc. After reading reviews, we parked in a public garage a few blocks away, since we were not often driving. This halved our parking costs. Great location(although not directly ON beach - a short walk through the back of hotel and across a parking lot). Lovely to sit on the outside terrace in the morning with complimentary coffee and papers.

Short walk to many restaurants, shops, gyms and yoga studios for those so inclined. Visit Main Street or Montana Avenue to avoid tourist madness of Third Street Promenade. Special thanks to Front office manager Jessica M., who displayed the charm, professionalism and service oriented attitude of a much more luxe property! We will return.

My fiance and I had an excellent experience at this hotel in March 2013. We stayed the evening following my proposal to her and the staff could not have been more friendly and did everything they could to make our experience as special as possible. When we return to LA, we will definitely return to Le Merigot.

Solid 3.5 star hotel.

Pros: Excellent location, big rooms, consistently good and friendly staff.
Cons: Very dated hotel with odd design. As a Marriott Gold member, I expected an upgrade but they didn't have one available, which was very disappointing. My room was below average.
