We stayed here for 2 nights last week. We reserved a suite but had to switch to a different room after one night. The first suite with a balcony overlooking Main street was lovely. The second night we were moved to another suite in the back of the property which wasn't as nice but sufficient for our stay. The rooms... More

We stayed for 2 nights in mid June. Liked the location of this motel as the Santa Monica Beach is just a short walk in front. We were also delighted to find a nice shopping area near the pier, which is not too congested. To the left of the motel, we could walk to Venice beach which is full of... More

The rooms that are suites are great for families. The room we had slept 2 adults and one big child very comfortably. The bed room has two full beds and a smallish TV with a fan and a very large closet. The living room has a large sofa that can be pulled out into a bed or you can sleep... More

Given the price, we enjoyed our stay. Beds are firm, very firm. Floors are all-tile and sweeped daily if you request cleaning. Did not get a flat-screen tv but one of the old fat ones. The AC made so much noise that we had to turn it off at times just to relax, also the AC was not working very... More

Ok, this is my 5th time here and it is my favourite motel! Simple as that. It has a perfect location close to the beach and on the coolest part of Main Street with so many great pubs, restaurants and shopping opportunities. However, if you like it in the city centre, you have a 20 minutes walk over there. Buses... More

We loved this place and I would stay here again in a heartbeat - the price is right and the place is cozy and quaint. The people were very friendly and had great suggestions on where to eat and what to see! The room was generously sized. Loved the tile floor - no smelly, germy carpeting or musty smell! Cute...

Had the pleasure of staying here for four wonderful days. We stayed in one of the spacious suites a couple doors down, which was very clean and well appointed with a full kitchen, dining area, living room, private bedroom and a balcony overlooking Main St. It is a bit noisy for anyone sleeping in the living room and I'm sure...

Great Motel and parking facilities. Spacious and clean rooms. Staff are always happy to help and suggest the best places to visit. Five minute walk to Santa Monica beach. Local to the shopping Mall and not far from Venice beach.

This is an honest-to-goodness old fashioned motel with very reasonable prices. I recently had a business assignment in west L.A., and remembered over lodging here previously, so I gladly stayed two nights. It has plenty of charm and a great location, just a few blocks from the ocean, and only steps away from a number of decent dining options. The... More

We were in town for a long weekend in LA, but wanted to stay by the beach. The location of this motel was perfect since so many NICE restaurants and the beach were within a 15 minute walk (and we didn't have a rental car). We loved staying on the second floor with vaulted ceilings. Corner rooms have two walls... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
