Stayed for two nights, you cannot beat the location, nealy across the road from Santa Monica Pier.
They put us in 108 which is street side, very noisy and it's as if all the street traffic is in your room. We were lucky we were dead tired when we crashed but the noise did not let up.
The Staff are the best you will come across, they moved us the next day and were very helpful.
The Rooms are average at best and I believe for the money they are charging they should be better. Yes I know we are in Santa Monica but really it's a $50 room in any backwater motel in America.
The second room we were given had sticky carpet, really it desperately needs a steam clean, bathroom had black dirty silicon coming away from the floor(oouuh).
Bathrooms from the 1950's.
Luckily the room had a small fridge and air Cond.
I would be using this place for one or two nights max if you want to be close to everything Santa Monica has to offer including the street bums. If Staying longer cough up the extra cash and stay in a better pad!
Last Comment, it served us perfectly for what we needed, would I stay there again. No! If I was desperate? Maybee.
