We stayed here for 4 nights in June whilst visiting Los Angeles. The accommodation is about 2 miles away from Santa Monica pier and beach, it's located on the main Pico Boulevard but our room was very very peaceful.

This accommodation is split into 3 buildings, building 1 is where reception is located and the guest rooms have internal entry doors, building 2 has external entry doors only and building 3 has a secure (gated) courtyard and the guest room entry doors are external but within the courtyard. We paid a little extra for a courtyard room and it was definitely worth it, the courtyard has room key operated gates and was very secure and peaceful. The courtyard also had outdoor seating and bbq's for guests to use. There is plenty of free car parking which is situated at building 1 and building 2 - the buildings are not far apart so you don't have far to take luggage.

We had a king room and it was much larger than we expected. The room, bedding and towels were spotlessly clean and the room smelt very clean and fresh upon entering. There was a separate dining area with a table, chairs, microwave and fridge - the in room safe is also located in this room and is large enough to secure laptops, cameras, lenses etc. The in room air con was very good and the free wifi was fast & reliable.

Our room was very peaceful, the bed very comfortable so we got some really good sleep.

The included breakfast is a bit basic, cereal, toast, bagels, cold hard boiled eggs, juice & coffee - this is available until 10am.

Guest laundry facilities are available and cost $2 to wash and $2 to dry. There are also vending machines and an ice machine.

The staff are friendly and very helpful with things to do and how to get to places. We had a car and drove to Beverly Hills, Universal Studios, Malibu Coast - everything by car is really accessible from this accommodation.

All in all we really enjoyed our stay, we felt very safe at the travelodge and would definitely stay again and recommend it.

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel during our short 2 day trip during memorial day long weekend. The staff was very helpful and friendly and allowed us to check-in at 2pm as we reached before the check-in time i.e.3pm...The room was in another building and the door had automated lock and looked like the area's not safe but it was all safe and well . The room was pretty nice, had a microwave, coffee maker ,dining table and a big bathroom. I wish we would have spent more time in the room which did not happen. The best thing about the hotel is that we get a 7 number bus for just $1 and drops at Santa Monica pier and the fun starts there. You can walk through Santa Monica to Venice beach and enjoy two most famous beaches in LA.As we had less time, the front desk staff Todd booked a city tour for us for just $75 which was good and they showed us all important places in LA which we would not have been able to do in a day with our own car. I am giving it 5 stars for the kind of services they provide. Thumbs Up!!

Wow! We can't thank you enough for the kind words. We are lucky to have the bus to the beach and the convenience of the tour company at our door step for guests. We strive everyday to provide our guest with clean comfortable rooms and exceptional service.

Hospitality at its best...
