5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I really liked this hotel. The hotel was in a great location within walking distance to many great Santa Monica attractions. It was close to the Santa Monica Pier, 3rd Street Promenade, restaurants and shops. I had a ocean front room with a balcony and the balcony was definitely worth the money. This hotel was a great place to stay.

We left this hotel (room 201) tired and dirty after a 4 night stay. The ocean view rooms sit over a restaurant / night club with thumping music and screaming people until 2am every night. Our shower faucet (w/ low flow rain head) was installed incorrectly, so we had either scalding hot water or freezing cold water to choose between.... More

My only suggestion is to ask ahead where your room is and what your room is overlooking prior to booking. Our room was over the garage and it was loud, we were not able to sleep with the windows open.

We stayed for one night as a family. Pros': 1. Great location - view of the beach/water, looking down on Santa Monica Pier. Note that it's actually a deceptively long walk to the water! Only 2 blocks from outdoor shopping mall with lots of restaurants and cafes. 2. Nice room, modern bathroom (separate walk-in shower), comfy bed. 3. Staff were... More

If you're looking for a hotel in the heart of everything then this is it. It's clean and in a great location. However, don't expect much more out of it. The receptionists are not very helpful and at times can be quite rude. Do not expect to sleep late and relax as it can be very noisy, even when all... 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.
