Clean room. Not noisy. Neighborhood seems okay but nothing of interest in walking distance. Generally a pretty decent place. Continental breakfast lacks eggs but otherwise is fine. Parking under building is tight but workable.More

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

Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
