I was apprehensive about booking the Ocean Lodge, due to some of the reviews posted here, but as it was only for one night, I thought I'd bite the bullet.
I needn't have worried! The Ocean Lodge was excellent.
You can't ask for a better location in Santa Monica. It was spitting distance from the pier.
We arrived long before the advised check-in time and our room wasn't ready. The front desk clerk was very helpful, and got it turned around within an hour or so.
The room was clean and a nice size. It was much better than the motel-style exterior would indicate. The room was equipped with a fridge. And it had the best smelling soap!
The hotel didn't offer any breakfast, but complimentary hot beverages are available at times when the front desk is open. There is also a complimentary internet terminal located at the front desk which can be used during office hours. This is limited to a 15 session if someone is waiting.
I was very impressed with this hotel.More
