The hotel is well situated, being a short cab ride to the beach, shops and bars of Santa Monica.
Hollywood is also only a cab ride away, around 30 dollars.
The hotel staff where helpful on check in and throughout the stay. The were always available to order taxis and give advice on the local area.
The hotels decor is dated inside and out.
The room I stayed in was big enough, and had all the usual hotel room equipment. It was however dirty. Under the bed was terribly dusty and the room had a slightly unpleasant smell. There is just a lack of attention to detail from the cleaning staff. It's obvious the rooms are cleaned, just not to a good standard.
I stayed for two nights and both mornings I was woken up at 0800 by workmen in the room next door drilling and hammering. I called the reception on both occasions to complain and although the noise stopped for a few hours it was still an inconvenience.
The hotel is adequate for a bed to sleep in whilst on a short visit but there are a few bad points to bear in mind.
