I am giving this motel four stars not because it is a four star hotel, because it plainly is not, but because of the price and location. It is a very plain and simple road-side type motel, but it is about one block from the beach, and one block from the Santa Monica pier, on Ocean Avenue. It is right in the center of things for Santa Monica, but the price is not much more than a motel at an interstate exit. I found it clean, and my brief interaction with the front desk was very pleasant. The office opens rather late, and is closed in the late evening (my keys were waiting for me when I arrived late at night). I have one very minor complaint - no cream for the in room coffee until the last day, and one more significant - the free in-room internet was so slow as to be almost useless.
