Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Good location close to downtown Santa Monica and the pier. Poor water pressure in our particular room but everything else was good!

6/10 Good

Good price for the area but a little sketch. Parking is really tight. I got back late and had to park out in the street. No AC but a little fan was provided. My favorite part was the shampoo and body wash they provide, smells amazing...
