Neighborhood
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.

Stayed here three nights. Positives: Clean, friendly staff, 1 mile walk to the beach. Quiet room and comfy bed. Negatives: It is a MOTEL, just so you know. NO air conditioner. Had ceiling fan and a box fan. Continental breakfast is very basic, not a lot to choose from. I would stay here again for the price.

The staff at the motel were lovely and friendly and helpful. We had Room 18 upstairs with a large double bed. There were toiletries, coffee making facilities, an iron and ironing board, a hairdryer and fan. We could park our car right by the room and in the mornings the motel offered complimentary coffee, muffins and fruit which was a nice touch.

We stayed 2 nights in Santa Monica Motel and would definitely stay here again. The price was reasonable compared to other hotels and the room was large, clean and comfortable. Complimentary water and coffee/tea and free parking was a plus. Walking distance to the beach and to city center. The only negative thing is that there is no air condition, but the fans (one in the ceiling and one on the floor) worked quite efficiently and kept the room cool.
