This motel is extremely cosy, clean and well located. Only a 15 minute walk from the beach! The rooms are very clean. We had a very big bathroom area including a coffee maker. The staff are absolutely wonderful. They really go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home. They are more than happy to help with any questions you have and there is always fresh coffee in the lobby. Sean and Cherie were amazing in making our stay special. I hope to come back soon!

The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful with all of our needs. They let us store our bikes (in big boxes) before our evening flight, allowing us to enjoy our day in Santa Monica.

Rooms newly furnished and clean. Good place to stay.

We loved staying at Santa Monica Motel, it was everything we were looking for. It was a perfect walking distance to Santa Monica/ Venice for the price that we were paying. The rooms were clean and well accommodated.

I really wanted to compliment the staff on their excellent help, in particular Cherie who always makes the stay much more pleasant with her very helpful charming style. As usual my room was lovely and clean.

Room Tip: I would go for upstairs
