Checked into this hotel as we need a room for 3 adults with separate beds. The sofa in the living room can be easily converted into a sofa bed.
The location is also close to the Santa Monica beach and 3rd Street Promenade, yet the pros basically ends there.
The rooms are in need of a full scale renovation. The 20 year old bathroom, all internal fixtures and furniture, and humming air-con (which I was told being "operating noise" that can't be fixed) contrast starkly with the young wall paper and ceiling paint which I guess had been done in a much more recent cosmetic renovation exercise. Bathroom amenities are very basic and limited. Swimming pool is tiny and deep enough for 10-year-old and under. My friend left a pair of flip flops there overnight and they were never found.
One last thing - don't use the valet. That was the mistake I made on the first night of stay when the hotel valet man told me that the huge, open parking lot right across the street charges $5-10 for each in and out whilst they charge $32 for overnight. That's not true. The parking lot is free for the first 30 minutes, $1 per hour and capped at $5 a day. I saved $27 each and every night thereafter by parking in the lot myself and walking 1 minute back to the hotel.
