my husband an I stayed here for two nights during our road trip in Oct/Nov this year. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. we arrived a little early but were able to access our room which was one of the ones in the courtyard area which was lovely. There were tables and chairs an BBQ's outside. The entrance was gated and made the room feel far away from the street.
The room was very big and the bed was huge. There was a separate area with a small table and chairs, a microwave and a fridge. The bathroom was quite big and had a bath.
The room was very clean and there was a safe. The hotel offers free off road parking and has washing machines and tumble dryers to use for a small fee.
The breakfast was very good, bagels, cereal, toast, fruit, tea, coffee and juice. It is kept well stocked but my only negative (a very minor one) was that if breakfast was busy seating was sometimes in short supply.
The hotel is about 35-40 mins walk to the beach but there is a bus which runs along the main road for those who don't have a car. We spent most of our time in the local area until we checked out and went on to visit Hollywood. We did drive into Santa Monica one night for dinner and found it easy to park the car.
I would stay here again due to the value. I do wish it was closer to the beach but I guess it would be a lot more expensive! It is however a great place to stay!!!

Stayed there with two friends for two nights. Although we arrived late around 11pm there was still enough place for parking. We had booked a courtyard room which was a bit more expensive than the "normal" rooms facing the street but it was well worth it, I had a pleasant sleep without getting disturbed by the noise from the streets, although it was central Santa Monica and close to the Interstate. The rooms were clean and comfortable, absolutely nothing to critisize here. We stayed there at Halloween and the room service had put a little Halloween treat in our room during the day. Very lovely gesture, esp. for someone who isn't a US citizen and not that much into that whole Halloween hype! :) Free wifi was available, had no problem to log in but it was quite slow.

Breakfast was included in the room rate, there was toast, bagels, fruits, cerials, jam, tea and coffee. Surely enough to start your day! Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.

You should be aware that the hotel isn't located within walking distance to the beach and downtown Santa Monica but by car or public transport it's only a very short ride.

If I ever travel to Santa Monica again (which will hopefully happen in the near future!) I'd stay there again.
