We were in the Santa Monica area visiting our son and his financee for the purpose of meeting his future in-laws.

We chose the Days Inn for it's location & it's price. We have no complaints about this; however, our room & the motel amenities were not acceptable. We could have been in a Motel 6 for that matter.

The room was very small with pidgeons outside our window. The hotel cleverly put up spikes to ward off the pidgeons on the outside ledge. They however, just found another location to rest.

The air-conditioner was noisy. The television picked up only 5 channels even though the amenities stated satalite tv.

There was an open closet for clothes underneath of which was a broken bathroom scale. The wallpaper was beginning to come off the wall. The ceiling had huge water stains.

As for their gym, it consisted of 4 stationary exercise equipment pieces siituated to the left of the elevator, off from the hallway. Certainly, not what we expected. Furthermore, if anyone were to use this equipment, they would have been right outside our door.

The bathroom, although it did appear renovated, lacked absorbant towels and wash clothes. The glasses were plastic.

Needless to say, we were glad we didn't have to spend too much time in our closet, and perhaps next time we will give up location for comfort and better amenities.

This was the only hotel with an available room for under $200 that we could find in the Santa Monica area. After reading all the reviews, we were very afraid. It was better than we expected. Fairly clean, non-smoking room and free parking. Place didn't smell. Continental breakfast was marginal but not less than we expected. Service was ok. All we did was sleep there. I would stay there again in a pinch.

After searching online for nice reasonably priced hotel in Santa Monica for a Labor Day weekend getaway, my companion and I chose this one. Mixed reviews on different sites, some of which concerned me, but overall happy with our choice. AAA discount came in handy. Good location, quiet, FREE PARKING (a biggie for me when traveling near L.A. area). Our room was decently spacious, clean, with a big bathroom and plenty of counter space, good water pressure and ample amount of clean towels. My companion complained of the uncomfortable bed and the pillows were pretty flat; we asked for fluffier ones and they arrived within 5 minutes. Continental breakfast was adequate. Dined out in some of the many fabulous restaurants nearby, sightseeing on the Promenade and the Santa Monica Pier. I agree with the comments of some the not-so-friendly front desk staff, however. Check-in person was very mechanical, barely looked at us; not mean or rude, just didn't seem very welcoming; did not smile at all, or say thank you for staying, or have any suggestions for anything (maybe he was mad that he had to work a holiday weekend?). Morning staff we had contact with and the check-out person were very attentive, cordial, asked how we enjoyed our stay and to come again. All in all, yes, I would stay here again.

I read some terrible reviews about this hotel and was worried what I would find when I arrived - but you know what ? It was fine!!

The room was clean,comfortable & quiet. The complimentary breakfast was okay and over all we didn't really have any complaints ( maybe the staff on reception could have been a bit friendlier and helpful).

For value for money and a place to stay in Santa Monica I would receommend it!

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It was great because it is across the street from a fun bar and has free covered parking. The area is a lot better than we saw and we felt very safe here. We are both 24 year old females from Scottsdale, AZ so that says a lot. If you want a nicer hotel than this then pay more and go to a fancy hotel, but for the price this was a great place. The only downside is it costs 35/per trip to go to the clubs in Hollywood. We met 2 other guests and shared the fare with them though, so it worked out. The front desk was helpful and gave us free food when we were wasted. I dont know who was helping the other people on here that are complaining.
