    Palihouse has been my favorite place to stay in Santa Monica. They have exceeded my expectations every time with their service and the lovely charm of this place. The design of this building mixed with the calm atmosphere they provide makes it a perfect gem.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This is a very charming boutique hotel. There is no self parking and valet is currently closed (due to COVID), so we had to park overnight on the street which was a 10 minute walk away. We received a very nice upgrade, but since room was next to a well-used stairwell it was loud at nighttime. Kitchen has limited tools for cooking. Garden was very peaceful and relaxing. Staff was very nice. Location is a short walk to Palisades Park overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the walk bridge to Santa Monica beach boardwalk.

    Lovely old traditional hotel perfectly located for a quiet stay. It’s in a residential area so there are no bar facilities but the ambience more than makes up for that.

    Great location and price. Having bikes on site is a nice touch. Restroom in the hotel lobby not very clean but overall a good place to stay for a day or two

  • 6.0.Good

    Disorganized and old

    This is basically an old apartment building. The rooms are really large and nicely decorated but the interior (bathrooms/hallways) are OLD. We ended up going to a different hotel because they gave our room away to someone else who requested to extend their stay. Front desk was nice but didn't seem that knowledable about the bookings or pet fee (it's higher then what's listed on hotels.com). We were given the key to the room that was supposed to be ours, but when opened the door, the previous guests still had their luggage and personal items around. At least they weren't there when we walked in? Went back down to front desk to figure it out and then decided to just book a different hotel. When we complained and emailed about our experience and getting our stay refunded, the manager couldn't even bother to get back to us. Our new hotel was much MUCH nicer and was cheaper.

  • 2.0.Poor

    My car was broken into and I had items stolen. My old iPhone was one item. I’ve had to close accounts and deal with all the identity theft issues. I’m trying to call Expedia to get a receipt to be refunded by the hotel. I can’t get anyone on the phone. Can someone please ring me. I need the receipt ASAP.
