This hotel does everything well and is great value for the area. We had a car, however it's on a major bus route if you don't have one. The location is superb to get around Santa Monica and it's a couple of blocks from the motorway to go further afield. The rooms are big and clean with free wifi. The breakfast consists of pancakes from a machine, toast, bagels, cereal and fruit. I know that might not sound too great but we really enjoyed it. There is free tea and coffee in reception all the time with the occasional tray of cookies to enjoy in the late afternoon.
We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a great stay. It was very quiet. The rooms are big and we had a small kitchenette, too. The rooms are clean and I like that our room had 3 windows that we could open to get a nice breeze going through. The breakfast was nice. They have flavored creams for the coffee, which was a bonus. In the afternoon they have cookies out in the breakfast area, too. The bus stops one block from the hotel and will take you right down to the beach or the Promenade shopping area and it's only a dollar. The employees were always friendly and had a smile on their faces. We would definitely stay here again. The price was very reasonable.

I always stay there when in the Los Angeles area. Leo, Hilda, Amalia, and Esmeralda, go above and beyond, to make sure every visit is perfect. The rooms have a small kitchen, fridge, and microwave, and is one block from Trader Joe's. It is also just a 10 minute ride to the beach, and on "The Big Blue Bus line", which makes getting around without a car, easy. There are many places within walking distance,

And the best part which I saved for last, are the reasonable room rates.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of a Route 66 road trip. The staff were extremely attentive and helpful. We arrived at 11am and were advised that our room was ready and we were therefore able to check in early. We were given a number of leaflets and advised on which tours were available and it was also easy to book through the hotel. We did a starlight tour which collected from and dropped of at the hotel.

The breakfast was free and it was one of the better ones that we had during our trip. There was a large selection of food and enough seating. However, breakfast was not served until 7 am. On our second day we had to be at the airport for this time, so we were not able to stay for breakfast which was dissapointing. The other hotels that we had stayed in started serving breakfast at 6 am which would have suited us much better.

We were advised by a member of staff to get the bus to the pier and told of the nearest bus stop. However, we stood at this bus stop for about 45 minutes one evening and two buses drove past us. When we went back to the hotel to pick up our car we were told that this bus stop wasn't actually a stop and that we should have gone to a different one. I would advise checking with the staff which bus stops are working stops. We did get the bus one day and it cost a dollar to get to the Pier. I would recommend this if you ascertain which stops the buses actually use...

Our main complaint about this hotel was the noise of the air conditioning unit. We had stayed in a number of different hotels throughout our trip however this was the noisiest of them all. We were both woken up on occassion by the unit going on and off. As it was July we were not able to sleep without the air conditioning on, so had to put up with disrupted sleep.

My family have stayed here twice now on different visits over two years. We came back and were not disappointed. Very clean, well equipped rooms. Friendly helpful staff. So easy to get to the beach area - just get the no.7 bus for a dollar straight there. Great Mexican restaurant across the road and go to Rae's diner too.
