I was a bit worried when we arrived late at night. Did not look like a great neighborhood (looked better in daylight) and the hotel was undergoing major construction (the front desk was difficult to find and get to). The room was nicer than expected and clean. The courtyard area was quiet. A really neat coffeehouse and Trader Joe's nearby. The best economical option in Santa Monica. I would stay there again.
One negative: front desk staff was a little pushy about asking for positive reviews on Tripadvisor. It's OK to remind us that positive reviews would be appreciated, but they went a little too far in my opinion. They didn't ask if they warranted a positive review, they just said they get evaluated and paid based on positive reviews and asked me to give them one. I didn't care for that.More
