Overall a wonderful stay at the small boutique hotel. You can't beat the location and service. Having valet parking was a plus. Limited ocean view rooms so call to ask first. Don't forget to ask about the amenities.

During my stay, everyone was so welcoming. Brittany in the front desk was so helpful. She recommended some restaurants. We tried one of them and it was really good. It was a sushi place. The hotel room was very clean. Everything in the room was in good condition. You are steps from the beach. Overall, a great experience.

One of the best hotels in Santa Monica. We stayed there for six nights in August and enjoyed every day. The location is perfect, close to the beach and Santa Monica Pier. Hotel staff was very friendly. Special thanks to Joy from reception, who was really helpful. Room was clean, housekeeping was very efficient. We were so pleased with the hotel that we already booked our next trip in September (wish we could stay there the whole year...).

Gem of a hotel in an excellent location! Rooms are meet clean and today, beds comfy with crisp linen changed daily. Rooms def ices well and with great attention to detail (toothbrush kit/shaving kit/loofer/make up wipes/ear buds/flannels/decent shampoo condition and body wash. Nespresso machine and kettle (for proper tea!) as well as fridge. Hotel has no bar/restaurant etc hut in this location you don’t need it and that is why the price is so good! Staff (Joy on Reception). Free hikes are brilliant as is the discounted rate For the restaurant at the Shore sister hotel a minutes walk away. Breakfast there is excellent! We booked Seaview rooms with a balcony, small but perfect for a drink and to see the sunset…interconnected with our children (in a double double). Bathrooms small but modern, clean and lots of towels etc. There really is no downside to this gem of a hotel right on the beach! Would stay here every time over Loews or Shutters!!… oh and they also give you beach towels… just a brilliant little hotel!

The location is awesome and it really is just a short walk to the pier. The hotel valet parking was easy to access and valet personnel were helpful. Th lobby area was clean and the front desk staff were inviting and helpful as well. The balcony was a bit small but pretty true to the pictures and was a cozy sit for my husband and me. The only real "stain" on the stay was that our room was not sufficiently cleaned. But the front desk came right away, reviewed the room, and immediately gave us a comparable room that was clean.

Great location, safe and clean hotel. Accommodating staff, going above and beyond, from the front desk to the valet, they will keep you happy! Walking distance to everywhere and a great view of the pier from the balcony. A great place to experience Santa Monica!
