We had a great stay - the son of the manager served us and showed us to our room and was so very sweet and helpful. Very homely feel, was nice and quiet, and close enough to walk to the main area of Santa Monica for drinks and food, etc.

They have rooms on the main street and rooms in the back yard. I took one in the back to have some good night sleep and stay away from the street noise. This room was a bit smaller. The bed was awful (like improvised) and I could hear everything from the next room really loud. The bathroom was a bit... More

Decent accommodation in the Santa Monica area. About 15 minutes walk to the pier. Clean and with nice staff. Outside parking on the premises. Downside: Drive-through Jack in the Box right in front with some shady visitors.

OK, bad things first - you DO NOT feel welcome here...at all. Staff wasn't friendly and you are served through a counter with a glass panel (like for example at the zoo), so you hardly see who you're talking to and it's difficult to understand what they say. Considering the relative low class of this place, prices are rather hefty... More

You feel like you're staying at an American family's house on a very nice street. The room and the beds are cosy. There's a small bar at the corner of the street. The location is good, close to tourist attractions and the hotel has free parking.

The room had two beds, one queen and one double. There was barely enough space for my 4 bags of luggage. Although it was very clean I had the feeling that since there wasn't that much space that wouldn't be hard to maintain. We stayed in room 110 which was a plus because it had an entrance right to the... More

As long as you don't expect a warm welcome, this place is OK for a budget offering conveniently located near Santa Monica and LAX, but you will pay a mid-range price for it. I'd recommend to check for availability elsewhere first. No A/C means you need to keep the windows open and people smoking outside the room (both front and... More

If you're looking for anything other than a bed to crash in while you are on a trip by yourself you may not want to stay here. It's kind of like staying in your friend's cabin at the lake but in Santa Monica and you have to drive to the lake but in this case the ocean.

We booked this motel because it was close to LAX. It served its purpose. Shares a parking lot with Jack in the Box which I'm sure on weekends it's quite noisy, at least coffee was only a few steps away. Room was unique as it had another room around the corner with double twin beds... As the person said at... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
