Santa Monica beach travelodge. Nice or not? Have heard some bad things and reviews for this property and just wanted to get the truth. Any recommendations for $150

Definately stay away. I stayed there a year ago and the place was disgusting. It smelt and I felt unsafe. Definately spend a few extra dollars and stay somewhere else. There is a hotel a few doors down, I think it was a Best Western that looked a lot nicer.

There are a couple of Tavelodges. The one on Ocean Drive didn't look good, but the one on Pico, a little inland, had good write-ups.

The Best Western looked really nice on the outside, and had rooms with ocean views.
