“What a find.”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Check in was quick, receptionist very helpful with places to eat, bus services and other touristy ideas.
Large rooms with plenty of space (had a double queen for 4 adults).
Had an underground car park - very large and free.
The hotel had a room area which is very comfortable and gets lots of evening sun which made the evening drink very enjoyable. They have a list of all the US presidents around the walls - interesting and novel.
Use the big blue bus network to get about - $1 flat rate - great to get to Venice and Santa Monica pier.
All staff were very pleasant.
Would definitely stop here again.
Only draw back was that the hotel was not on the front.

Room Tip: Have a room on the top floor as it gives direct access to the roof area

The hotel is well situated, being a short cab ride to the beach, shops and bars of Santa Monica.
Hollywood is also only a cab ride away, around 30 dollars.
The hotel staff where helpful on check in and throughout the stay. The were always available to order taxis and give advice on the local area.
The hotels decor is dated inside and out.
The room I stayed in was big enough, and had all the usual hotel room equipment. It was however dirty. Under the bed was terribly dusty and the room had a slightly unpleasant smell. There is just a lack of attention to detail from the cleaning staff. It's obvious the rooms are cleaned, just not to a good standard.
I stayed for two nights and both mornings I was woken up at 0800 by workmen in the room next door drilling and hammering. I called the reception on both occasions to complain and although the noise stopped for a few hours it was still an inconvenience.
The hotel is adequate for a bed to sleep in whilst on a short visit but there are a few bad points to bear in mind.

Room Tip: 106 to 108 are near the laundry room and therefore are quite noisy due to the maids.

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.
