“A charming getaway in sunny Santa Monica”
Reviewed 18 March 2009

We had a wonderful time at this cute inn, which is a short drive from the famous Santa Monica pier (we did manage to walk it once, but it took longer than we'd thought). The staff were really friendly and helpful - one even offered to take my postcards to the post office - and our room was very cosy and homely. I liked the spa tub in the garden, too. The only tiny thing I missed was my cooked breakfast (being an eggs and bacon kind of girl), but that's just me being picky. We really did have a lovely time and I'd happily recommend this to friends and family.

My husband and I had a great little getaway at the Channel Road Inn. The hot tub was great, the Inn was very comfortable and relaxing, and the food was excellent. We were able to walk to the beach and enjoy a long stroll. I would highly recommend staying here.

This was our second stay at the Channel Rd Inn and, once again, the staff and surroundings were warm and inviting. After a long flight from Australia, it is only a brief 20 min drive from LAX to the Inn. As you enter the front door you are immediately greeted by the aromas of freshly baked cookies and cake. Heather, Dominique and Norma are welcoming hosts. They get you settled into the room promptly and will assist in recommending and reserving restaurants and a host of other activities. On a previous trip we arrived very early (7.30am!!) and, while our room was not available, they sat us down and insisted on us having a hearty breakfast before driving of to the Getty centre before returning at 1pm. The room we stayed in (room 12) is at the back of the inn on the third floor, which is private and quiet if the windows are closed. Channel road is fairly busy and the traffic noise might be a little intrusive for some, but we had no problems sleeping, even with the windows open. The room was spacious, airy and light with windows on three sides. The bed was fantastic - king size, fine sheets and plenty of pillows. The bathroom was clean and spacious. The location is great - there are several nice restaurants within a minutes walk, from family friendly tex-mex (try the margarita's at Marix) to upmarket italian (Delphini). Downtown Santa Monica is 1.5 miles to the south, the beach board walk is 200yards west and the Getty centre is within an easy 15minute drive. The neighbourhhood is safe at night and we had no qualms about walking around. Evening wine, cheese and canapes are a nice touch. There are free sodas in the self help fridge and lovely baked cookies and cakes are provided. We will definitely be back as this is a wonderful place to start your trip in LA.

Once passed the locked front door, everything was welcoming! We loved the charm of the manor and it was fun to poke our noses into each new room we encountered. Our guest room was just perfect for us having as it did a fireplace, sofa, and large balcony with furniture. The staff was always willing to assist without any hesitancy or hint of being put out. The staff prepares the goodies for the breakfast and the wine & snacks. Not only were they delicious, but the cooks were happy to share their receipes with us, and even how to upgrade and change them to better suit our loves. Staff also recommended restaurants that were within walking distance. Their suggestion was first rate; we had a wondersul meal of fish and seafood.

We enjoyed staying at Channel Road Inn. They serve a nice mini buffet breakfast which includes hard boil eggs, cereals, toast/english muffins, a special egg dish, fruit, and usually fresh baked muffins or breakfast pastry. They also have orange juice, coffee, & tea.
They have lovely sitting areas where you can find find the daily newspaper, a book shelf of books some Movies to watch, and a dish of candy kisses. Also available are sodas anytime.
In the early evening they serve a lovely wine and cheese plate, with a few other surprise.
The rooms are comfortable with fireplaces, televisions,
2 chocolate chip cookies, a little vase of flowers, a teddy bear on each bed and seems to have pottery-barn accents. The price is reasonable and after being here for 2 nights, we returned a few nights later for one more. I think that confirms we would return!!
There is one room in the back that has a queen bed that is very small and I would avoid that room, unless it is the only one left.
The Inn is located a few blocks from the Ocean and near the Getty Villa which is a lovely place to visit with free advance reservation($10.00 parking fee).

Great place just 1.8 miles north of the Santa Monica Pier nestled one block from the beach in Santa Monica Canyon. We first stayed here for New Years earlier this month with the house decorated really beautiful for the holidays. The main room and through out the house has detailed wood work and vintage accessories. The rooms we stayed in were plenty big and decorated really cool. There are a couple of porches, one in front and one on the second story were you can hang out and marinate. The afternoon at five comes out the wine and goodies, crackers, dips, cheese, etc., very good. The morning breakfast is between 7:30 and 10:00 which is good for coming in late at night and it has been both times really great. Dominique made an awesome lime coconut cake. All the people here are happy to see you and treated us extremely well. Easy access to Santa Monica above via the back way up Channel Road. We were pleased to make the second trip and look forward to return again. Look for specials on the Four Sisters Inn web site.

My husband and I recently returned from a three-night stay at the beautiful and relaxing Channel Road Inn in Santa Monica, which had been recommended by friends. The Inn was so lovely that it was hard to drag ourselves away to visit area attractions! This charming getaway is home to warm, courteous staff who will ensure that your stay is everything you'd like it to be. The Inn has also received architectural recognition and stands registered as an historic landmark. But a tranquil atmpsohere and superior service aren't the only reasons to indulge...scrumptious meals, which include a gourmet breakfast buffet and afternoon tea, wine and biscuits, will leave you wanting more...much more.
