Santa Monica, California24 contributions6 helpful votes
This place manages to break 3 City/County laws at once: 1. Starts loud gardening projects at 7AM. 2. Use illegal motorized blowers. 3. Workers do not wear masks. Manager's answer to these issues: "This is how it was always done..." So if you wish to get waken up at 7AM, get your car and yourself dusty with toxic pavement dust and maybe get an illness - this is your place! See picture...

This is a great place. Spacious apartments with all amenities. Yes, it is not new but that goes with the style. Excellent location for everything Santa Monica has to offer. It can be noisy and yes that early morning bottle and garbage collection is irritating - but only if you do not sleep through it. Designed in the historic SM style. I loved SM in the 60's/70's -so peaceful and laid back - but now everything we did then is banned or illegal. I hear you even have to pay for car parking now. When I get out I will come back and see if any of the old gang are still hanging out -and who took my Shelby 500.

Stayed here last month & would stay again. Had 2 teenagers so good to have plenty of space - living & kitchen. Although dated, I knew that from the photos but it was clean & maintained & felt safe. Great location & the staff were very friendly. Only negative for us was the shower water temperature was never quite hot enough no matter the time of day so no lingering there but maybe that is the reason.

I was on the third floor very difficult to carry suitcases up 3 staircases. Very dated unit, my biggest complaint was it was a cool week and I was there 6 nights, with not heat. Thermostate didn't work, plus the 50 year old stove in the kitchen leaked natural gas that you could smell everytime you went in the kitchen. I did not think it was reasonably priced since it is so old. The room itself was clean.
