“Good location needs refurbishment”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Good location but needs refurbishment very old but clean and tidy, staff friendly and helpful, breakfast not bad for this type of hotel, cereals toast fresh fruit muffins pastries juice coffee tea, free parking, hire a bike at bike centre with cheap parking and cycle to Venice beach and onto other beaches.

Thank you so very much for your feedback. We are actively resolving the need to refurbish rooms, and appreciate the patience shown from our guests as normal operations have been disrupted lately. Our goal is to indeed remain the first choice for affordable lodging here at the Days Inn Santa Monica. We welcome you back soon to enjoy our improved guest experience.

Absolutely avoid this hotel. Ugly, old, moldy, rooms smell like smoke, spiders, yellow towels, and uncomfortable beds... Need I say more? I can't believe priceline sent me here thinking I got a "great deal"... Never again.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the first floor. They feel unsafe and reek of smoke.

Thank you so much for your feedback. As stated previously, the first floor is scheduled to be restored soon. The property is indeed designated 100% nonsmoking, and reporting odors helps us maintain the quality guests expect here. We apologize that your stay was unpleasant and hope we have the opportunity to make things right on your next visit to Santa Monica Beach.

Had much difficulty finding a room in Santa Monica for Medical Center appointment. I was very lucky that Days Inn had a cancellation. Location is excellent. Very low budget room, for the $210/ night. Room was at the lower level, just off the parking garage, which was very convenient, but I felt like I was in the basement, and heard noise from other guests getting from their car to the elevators. Room was clean if you didn't look real close. Lots of fuzz/dirt all along the walls that hadn't been vacuumed for quite a while. Decor old and dated. This is the place that I wanted to just sleep, and get out without looking further.
Beds were clean comfortable. There was a nice breakfast area with coffees, juice machine, donuts, cereals, etc. A styrofoam atmosphere. Hotel did offer free newspapers, etc. Management was nice.
Perhaps a room upstairs would have been a bit more pleasant.
This place is smack in the middle of it all, and it could be a great place with some new life in management - someone who can raise the standards a few notches and get this place cleaned up.

Room Tip: get a room upstairs - maybe these are better.

We are very sorry for your unfortunate experience here at the Days Inn Santa Monica. It is our goal to make everyone feel comfortable here, but the location in the building does indeed differ. The ground floor will be refurbished soon, but we invite you back to enjoy one of the balcony rooms when your next visit to Santa Monica affords you the time to take in the beautiful climate here. Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon.
