“disgusting ,mold infestation unhealthy”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

me and my husband and son stayed one night and it was the longest night in my entire life ,the clerk was so creepy and ignorant when we opened the room we were horrified of how disguting and dirty bathroom was full of mold and curtains too ,sticks in the windows to secure and the sheets never changed we went to ask for a refund and was told he couldnt give it back didnt have any choice than to stay for 84$ what a rip off this place should be closed down for mold and for false advertising .dont rent here run please run ......

Room Tip: run,run,run,not healthy mold,mold,everywhere

Unfortunately I paid for in advance from a non refundable internet site and still did not stay after inspecting the room. Mold and urine smell, Soiled mattress and bed covers, sink cabinet door hanging from one hinge, simply a very old, unkept, very small room not even worthy of half the advertised price.

My only piece of advice is DO NOT STAY HERE!! The place is disgusting, we were given a room that was so dirty we asked for another. We were given another that was equally as bad. The sheets on the bed were disgusting and didn't match. The room was painted yet there was one patch on the wall that was painted a completely different colour than the rest of the room! The door wouldn't lock properly! I went outside and my husband locked it from inside, I walked in without any trouble!

It's also not within walking distance of Santa Monica, you would have to get the bus. We didn't stay, ended up leaving and paying more for a place near the promenade! Didn't mind paying more to get away from this place despite being on a budget!

By chance found Pavillions, A small "motor motel" from back in the day. this place seems to have a reicent upgrade (Rm.12) small rooms and small bathrooms. All rooms are non smoking with a smoking court yard that is very pleaseant to sit in. Staff is super friendly too. Take #8 bus from Main st. just off the pier to Ocean Park Blvd. and 21st st and walk a half a block north. Clean and quiet. sweet dreams.

Pavilions Motel is NOTHING like the pictures! It is a rat hole that should not be open. I should have slept in my car. The dump wreaked from paint that may have caused me to inhale toxic lead poisons. The two postage stamp soaps in the tiny excuse for a bathroom sat next to a clump of hair on the sink. The furniture is falling apart and the place should be condemned. The only thing close may have been Auschvitz. It is disgusting!

The owner of this place, Sid, is a very nice guy, helped me out with maps, lots of fruit and is a genuine interested listener. The hotel feels like a warm family. I'll remember L.A. as a beautiful, nice place.

We stayed here for two nights as nothing else was available, the staff were nice enough but the motel badly needs repairs, fairly run down and very basic. Paint flaking off walls, doors that look like they have been kicked in a few times, very old fittings and small rooms. It is also up near 23rd street so it's quite far from the Promenade/Pier/beach. Staff let us check in early which was helpful but apart from that I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Very rundown and the towels provided were quite dirty.
