“A modest affair”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

A mature lady handed us a map in a matter of fact manner. I thought facility useful for visitors. Santa Monica made a welcome change from the sprawl of LA

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2012

Unfortunately my experience was a negative one. I visited this centre over several times and most times it was closed despite it being its official opening times. On the occasion it was open I needed advice regarding the public transport and the representative was unhelpful. We were not able to purchase bus tickets from there and they were not interested in providing us with change. As a visitor in a new city you expect a little support and it is my understanding that a visitor centre should offer this.
