Had such a great experience here. Room was big, bed was comfortable and staff was pleasant. Free undercover parking right next door to your room. Hotel was two miles away from beach. And it cost us like $89 per night. Such a good deal!!

We booked this hotel because we didn't want to spend $300-$700for a single night and the rooms at $200 were all booked up. My BF booked it from one of these sites. These guys only had 2 rooms left so we got it without looking(actually he did). So this place is about 10-15mins from Santa Monica pier and when we... More

This is a quirky place. The beds were comfortable and it was clean. There are no niceties such as ice or coffee in the room.It was quiet except for the drunk college students returning at 2a.m. Parking requires some skill. In another town I would have felt that I had overpaid however Santa Monica is very expensive.

This place is the epitome of "you get what you pay for". The decor is very bare bones which is okay because I go to the beach to go out not stay in but this place is really rundown (missing light bulbs, tv not working to name a few things). There is no air conditioning which is okay on the... More

Three of us guys leave the wives home and do a motorcycle road trip once or twice a year for a few days. We heard the Petersen Automotive Museum went through a $90 million renovation. We wanted to see it but didn't want to pay the room rates in the greater LA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills area and the Palm Motel... More

We were there for a night. The hotel room was clean and decent. Rooms are small and the cable not functioning. Beds were comfortable. Nothing fancy in the room such as a fridge or a microwave. Not even coffee. We saw a man outside the hotel room pacing left and right waiting for his coffee which they serve outside the... More

Bad service, dirty room, loud place. Pigeons everywhere and the parking space is really tight. It is more like apartments than a motel. Spend a little more to stay in a brand motel. Thr savings is not worth it

Palm Motel TOTALLY let me down and I wouldn't recommend staying at this place. Here's my story: Red Flag #1: I had made reservations via email a few weeks prior to my stay. My confirmation email came a few hours later from what looked like a personal email address, not the business one I sent the original booking request to.... More

We didn't pre-book, it was a last minute decision, we just turned up and got a room. This is good value for money and the man who checked us in was lovely and it felt very safe. For a cheap last minute room - we had a great night sleep, it was good. There is also free on site parking... More

Clean sheets, clean floors, very bare bones but it worked. I would stay here again, probably ask for a downstairs room although the breeze was wonderful at night on an upstairs level. The coffee maker was on the blink so there was nothing to heat up water in the morning, i would bring my own next time. Santa Monica hotels... 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.
