OK, bad things first - you DO NOT feel welcome here...at all. Staff wasn't friendly and you are served through a counter with a glass panel (like for example at the zoo), so you hardly see who you're talking to and it's difficult to understand what they say. Considering the relative low class of this place, prices are rather hefty... More

You feel like you're staying at an American family's house on a very nice street. The room and the beds are cosy. There's a small bar at the corner of the street. The location is good, close to tourist attractions and the hotel has free parking.

The room had two beds, one queen and one double. There was barely enough space for my 4 bags of luggage. Although it was very clean I had the feeling that since there wasn't that much space that wouldn't be hard to maintain. We stayed in room 110 which was a plus because it had an entrance right to the... More

As long as you don't expect a warm welcome, this place is OK for a budget offering conveniently located near Santa Monica and LAX, but you will pay a mid-range price for it. I'd recommend to check for availability elsewhere first. No A/C means you need to keep the windows open and people smoking outside the room (both front and... More

If you're looking for anything other than a bed to crash in while you are on a trip by yourself you may not want to stay here. It's kind of like staying in your friend's cabin at the lake but in Santa Monica and you have to drive to the lake but in this case the ocean.

We booked this motel because it was close to LAX. It served its purpose. Shares a parking lot with Jack in the Box which I'm sure on weekends it's quite noisy, at least coffee was only a few steps away. Room was unique as it had another room around the corner with double twin beds... As the person said at... More

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!! While the rooms were nice the service I received and the ATTITUDE I recived from them was horrendous. Tried to chuck me out after one nights stay due to unavoidable circumstances. Close to the beach was it's only benefit, no care for the people staying at all by owners/runners but rooms well maintained.

This motel was approx 20 minutes from LAX, and a 15 minute walk to Santa Monica Beach. Felt safe in the neighbourhood and Found it handy to have a Jack in the Box next door. Our room was behind a locked gate and well lit at night, so felt safe. It was also very quiet. The room itself was basic... More

Don't stop here for resting. It is dirty and very expensive. Me, my wife and my daughter stayed there for two nights in March 2016and we lived a bad experience. The room smelled moisture, we plugged in the two electrical heating bodies (so dirty that we were loathing to touch it) to warm up the room. During the night some... 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.
