Simply put, It's in a great location right in front of the beautiful beach with not that bad room and services. The hotel room was relatively clean and modern, but not that good enough to be seen as great at all (smaller room than expected). I found my stay just ok for a business trip, but potentially too expensive for...

Good hotel, clean and right on beach front. Shame they didn't have a bar in the hotel but plenty a short walk away. We booked to stay for two nights but had to meet a friend a day early. We spoke to Joy who was extremely helpful and agreed to change the booking to just one night for no extra...

We loved this bright and airy hotel overlooking Santa Monica Beach and Pier. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. It was close to great eateries and shops and a free sunset was thrown in! Being en route from NYC to Australia it was a very relaxing stopover before the longhaul flight home. Would definitely stay here again.

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.
