Pretty basic but I found the staff helpful and the price was very reasonable. However the location was the main attraction. 5min walk to pier, 3rd st promenade, directly opposite one of the tour bus companies if you are a tourist., public bus stop minutes away and anyone can find their way back to Santa Monica boulevard so you can't get lost! If you are after a luxury suite with big ensuite then look elsewhere. But I'm giving it five stars because it was exactly what I wanted - a reasonable room at a good price in an absolutely fantastic location.
