“An oasis off of Santa Monica Blvd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

I saw the TripAdvisor logo on the front door of the hotel lobby and knew I picked the right place. We travel for business and have stayed at more "budget" hotel rooms in the LA area than I care to remember. The Azul Inn was a pleasant surprise. An oasis off busy Santa Monica Blvd. with the Mormon Temple across the street which is quite a site to behold. The Azul Inn is off a small frontage road which parallels Santa Monica Blvd. giving it a small buffer from the busy street. The room was clean. Nice array of pillows. Comfortable bed. Updated decor with a bathroom window that opened! The lobby front counter has maps of the local area attractions and restaurants. The clientele were friendly. There is an array of restaurants around the corner off of Westwood Blvd. which is a fairly short walk. I had the best wonton soup of my life at the Mandarin Kitchen off of Westwood Blvd. LA Metro has an app for your phone, so you can find your way around. Bus stops are near by. Only down spot was the Wi-fi was a little slow. I would defiantly stay here again. Kudos to the Azul Inn

Room Tip: Request a ground floor room if you travel heavy.

Thank you for your honest review and the kudos, We appreciate when a guest takes the time to report that they enjoyed their stay, I would like to say that since your stay we have installed a brand new state of the art WiFi system through out the entire property. I hope that should you again be in the area in need of refuge away from the norm, that you will again select our property and test out the new WiFi system.

Room is nicely equipped and well maintained, up to date bathroom equipment. Good bed though king is too large for the room. Queen would allow for a second chair. Continental breakfast includes clever pancake machine but be sure to stay with paper plate at the ready. No yogurt or hard boiled eggs, but 3 choices dry cereal and several mixes for hot cereal. Coffee ready all hours. Parking is free but limited. Do not stay out too late. We plan to return for next family gathering nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms 120-22 protected from traffic noise on Santa Monica Blvd.

I stayed here last December for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The location is perfect for UCLA and much cheaper than surrounding hotels if booked in advance. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive, especially Hector on reception. I reported that the Wifi was down and it was fixed within the hour. Housekeeper was rather persistent for her tip but that didn't detract from the stay and the room was very clean. The only downside was the noise from the traffic but this is Santa Monica Blvd so was expected. Would stay again.

No frills hotel, nice location, budget hotel. If you are looking for a hotel near Santa Monica, and close to LA main attractions this is the place. Is the cheapest decent place that you will find in santa Monica. The hotel has been renovated recently. Would stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the back street. They are quieter.

This is a take it or leave it motel. Don't think it's worth the price we paid which was $135 a night. It's clean and a place to put your head down but nothing else really. The pancake machine is the best part.

Fresh off a 6 night stay at The Azul Inn and I couldn't be happier! My room was very clean, housekeeping was excellent, quiet (considering its in downtown LA) and very reasonable for the area. The bed was very comfortable, TV was HD and had plenty of channels and parking was free! They could charge for parking but they don't!

The front desk staff isn't overly friendly but nobody in LA really is. They were polite and helpful with suggestions. The continental breakfast is more than adequate but setup in a cramped area so be prepared to be patient.

The value for the price is great! Especially considering the location. I plan on staying here for my next visit.

I stayed at the Azul Inn for 3 nights while visiting LA. While it looks a bit like a dingy motel from the outside, the rooms were great and spotless, cleaner than many 4 star hotels. There is nothing within walking distance but if you have a car it is the perfect place to stay: close to Santa Monica and Venice (and cheaper than any place you'd get there) and central to most of LA. Overall a good place to base yourself to tour the city.
One negative: the wifi was slow and only 2 devices are permitted (which is a problem when 2 people each have a phone with a limited data plan and a computer).
