    Lovely place

    The hotel is in excellent condition and beautiful. People should be aware that it is too far to walk to the beach, but the hotel provides bicycles. . . .

    Nice stay

    The hotel was upgraded. It is very clean. The front desk people are very friendly and helpful. Free wifi was fast speed. It is nice to see greens through the sliding door. Our room is located on the first floor. There is a cute small patio table and two chairs outside. Free bottleed water is available, which is quite nice. On site parking is convenient but we have to pay for parking.

    A Gem in the Santa Monica Neighborhood.

    The location was great. surrounded by a nice neighborhood, walkable distance to the shops, restaurants... and beach wasn't too far to drive... It was very comfortable for us, a family of 4 with two teen agers. Clean, nicely decorated and designed room. The hotel doesn't have lots of amenities but it is very charming as a small boutique hotel.

    Great hotel stay

    I really enjoyed this hotel. It’s clean and comfortable and in a great location. Tartine (bakery and restaurant) is right across the street! The hotel has a nightly happy hour and will make you a terrific coffee / espresso drink at any time. Self parking on property is easy. I’ll definitely go back.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The Ambrose was perfectly located central to the Santa Monica Pier, boardwalk, local restaurants and downtown strip. Private on-site parking was appreciated at $35 a day. Property was quite, clean and discreetly located. Suite view was not pretty; ours was a hospital and alley way. Also would have been nice if there was a pool and breakfast included. Would consider staying again but not as a first choice.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Excellent location, quiet, comfortable, luxurious feeling without the cost of Santa Monica luxury hotels (still a lot by nonresort-area standards). Unpretentious, friendly, easy to get to. Walk to all major medical facilities nearby. Bicycles available. Great bakery across the street (Tartine) The only reason I gave service four instead of five stars is that housekeeping did not come to my room during my two-night stay. But that may have been because I was inside working a good part of the time. Front desk staff and baristas were wonderful.
