This is what is says on the box - a motel. Basic but clean. Staff were ok but don't expect any frills. The location is great for the Santa Monica Pier and for the beach. The areas not as nice as it used to be but still good fun.

I was welcomed early morning after my long flight from Australia and was thankful to be able to check in early. The motel is easy walking distance to the main attractions with an affordable price. Friendly staff.

I made the reservation well ahead of time on Booking.com. I reserved 6 rooms for 24 people (each room had 2 beds) but, upon arrival, that's not what I received. First, they couldn't find our reservation. And when they did, they gave me 6 rooms with only 1 bed each (only sleeps 12) so half of my group didn't have...

The location was great and great value for the price. Wifi wasn't working at the motel, it appeared to be that I was given the wrong password. Check in took awhile. Took about 20 minutes and I was the second person in line.

Room was clean, staff very friendly. Very silent location, I think we'd come back again, next time in santa monica. But this was the first time for me in a motel so I could not compare with other motels.

We stayed in this motel during the last Christmas vacation. It used to be a pretty dumpy place but what a change! The rooms are clean and nice, though they can use some updating with beds and carpets particularly. They are doing a lot of updating as well so this is likely to improvel. This hotel has a very convenient...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
