Great place to stay! Clean, quiet, close to several restaurants and things to do. Matei offered phenomenal customer service. Definitely coming back! Came for a bday/ Anniversary weekend and having so much fun! There are several restaurants within walking distance and the beach is not that far!

Hotel's Favorite
Big and clean rooms. Very friendly staff ready to help you anytime with anything. Quiet and safe surroundings. On the other side of the road there are few fastfoods opened almost around the clock (pretty nice on jetlag). 15 minute walk from the beach. Would come here again for sure.

The owners have done a great job renovating and improving this place. It is very comfortable and clean. The day manager - Laura - was very helpful and accommodating. She made the decision to schedule another stay very easy to make. Looking forward to going back!

I haven't yet checked in, however MATEI has already made my day!!! He went over and beyond and saved my STAYCATION! I've been working Nonstop for a nice while now and today is actually my moms 60th birthday and I wasn't able to fly home due to the weather and I wanted to just get out of my own space and take a night away by the shore. A third party site completely MESSED UPPPP my reservation and MATEI, not needing to AT ALL ,.... I'm sure he had plenty of other duties " offered to call that third party on my behalf and U was able to just postpone my stay by 1 day! Regardless of anything else I AM PLEASED!!! Keep him near .... I may steal your employee S.M.H. ( Santa Monica Hotel ) lol lol

My husband and I arrived to this cute little hotel and was greeted by Alisha late in the evening. She helped us feel welcome, comfortable and provided us with outstanding service. At checkout Laura & Cherie showed us around the hotel for future potential stays with our kids. Both were very friendly and proud of the new look of this cute hotel! We let them know how great this experience has been and will returning again soon! Thank you ladies!<3

Great location, good value for the money. The hotel is a bit odd but the rooms were nice and everything worked. We would stay there again. It is centrally located to many things. We brought out bikes and biked to the Santa Monica pier and Venice beach.

After searching around for a room, we decided to book Santa Monica Hotel for our two night stay. It provided a great spot for exploring Santa Monica as well as an easy drive up to Universal for the day. We would stay here again if we make it back out to LA!
