Quick trip
The hotel staff was amazing. Very willing to to make the stay comfortable. Room was clean. Windows open in too. So you could get fresh air which was very nice. Close to beach and Santa Monica pier.

Clean hotel, a little noisy
We chose this hotel for its location to a place we were going. It was perfect on that front and was within walking distance to a lot of great coffee/restaurants etc. and only 10 min drive to the pier. The room was very clean and nicely updated. My only complaint was the walls were thin and it was a bit noisy. You could hear doors opening and closing. Sometimes other doors closing would cause the room to shake. We could hear the people above us walking around. Other than that, it was a great hotel and experience.

Exceptional 10.0
Our stay was awesome! Customer service was great, ladies at front desk were very welcoming. At first I was bummed because I felt like it was far away from beach but we walked right outside of the hotel lobby found some rental scooter and made it down to the beach in about 7 minutes, the whole trip was amazing and what made it so amazing was the stay at the hotel. Clean, great location, easy check in. Will be staying here again next time we come back.

Very good 8.0
The hotel is clean and parking is free. That’s a huge plus for Santa Monica, because no where is parking free. The rooms are not what I would call fabulous, but we were only there one night so it was fine. You also are given 2 complementary bottles of water which was nice.

Exceptional 10.0
This hotel was nice perfect for what we needed a little one night getaway a lil far to walk to the downtown area but it’s a cheap ride through scooter or Lyft there isn’t a lot of parking so I suggest coming early on before check in to find parking and either walk or Lyft everywhere.

Returning Here Soon
Perfect location for my medical appointments. Staff was friendly and the room very comfortable. Due to COVID, breakfast was a grab and go (no choice), which was appreciated. Parking is convenient. We will be back!

Overall great place
The room was clean and comfortable. Staff was attentive, friendly and very helpful. I felt safe. It is next to a hospital so there are some frequent sirens outside, and the walls are a little thin so if someone shuts a door in the hallway, you might feel it and/or hear it!

Very Happy!
Staff was very welcoming when we checked in. Also, they were very accommodating for our request for a room with a view. So we enjoyed a spectacular sunset from our balcony view. They were also very helpful for suggesting dinner options in the vicinity. We were very happy to stay here.
