I landed another job interview, this time in Santa Monica. My travel budget wasn't very large, so I booked this hotel, based on price and it's high trip advisor score.
The main reason for the low cost is it's location. The hotel is about 20 minutes away from the Pier/Third Street concourse/ general tourist areas. It's quick and convenient to get to where you need to go, but don't expect to be right on the beach.
As previous reviewers had noted, the hotel was under construction, which made getting around the hotel difficult. I couldn't travel in the hotel proper - everything was accessible only from the outside. Fortunately, the weather was nice enough where this wasn't a concern.
So the location was only OK, and the construction made the stay inconvenient - not to mention the breakfast was only OK, and the wi-fi was a little spotty. So why did I give the hotel such a good score?
The room itself was great. It was just big enough for me to fit perfectly. The bed was extremely comfortable, and every night I slept well, and wasn't interrupted by outside noise. The hotel staff was very helpful, and I felt like the hotel was a great base for my trip.
It's not perfect, but this hotel was well worth the price that I payed.
