This hotel is in a great location, just a short drive to 3rd Street Promenade and the beach, and there is even a free shuttle to take you there from the hotel. Rooms are clean and the hotel staff is friendly.

Taking our grandson to the Santa Monica Pier (Pacific Amusement Park), Palisades Park,was a wonderful experience made more enjoyable by having a local hotel that made a good nights sleep even better. We enjoyed our time with him and he enjoyed his days there!! A definite win for everyone!

I stayed two nights at Best Western Plus Gateway Hotel Santa Monica, CA. The room was nice , clean and quiet. A great place to relax after long meetings. The staff was super friendly and always went that extra mile for you. I would absolutely recommend staying at this hotel.

Hotel is conveniently located. Rooms were small but ok. I couldn't sleep due to very loud street noise. Parking space is narrow but manageable. Santa Monica beach is about 2 mile away and you should take your car.

We were here only for one night. We checked in late (around midnight) but were welcomed by cheerful staff and the check-in process was completed in a very prompt way.

Looks like this hotel is being renovated and we got the newly renovated rooms up on the fourth floor (we had three rooms). There was a stark difference in the condition of the elevator (probably still stuck with the old decor) and the actual room (with new furniture and decor).

The onsite IHOP helped as we didn't have to drive around looking for breakfast options.

I don't know if both places (the hotel and the ihop) are run by the same management, but if yes, I'd say you've got good people working for you.

The secure parking was a definite plus.

Couple things that need to be addressed though -
The elevator(s) - at least the flooring of the elevators
Luggage carts

Overall this was a good place.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room (especially the ones on the fourth floor are good) - as of Dec 2013
