    Good

    Ocean view not as great as i was expecting

  • 8.8
    Superb

    A clean hotel and better than I had expected with fantastic location and very helpful reception staff. No real facilities on the hotel i.e bar, restaurant, gym, pool etc, however the beach is across the road and there is a countless variety of restaurants very close (1-5 min walk) so not an issue at all. You do have a coffee machine in your room and reception happily gave you more if required. Hotel staff can organised trips/tours into LA which pick up and drop at hotel. Price is fair for the location but certainly not what I would say budget prices. We would certainly stay there again as it is the cheaper end of the hotels priced on the waterfront. Pay the little extra for an ocean view-well worth it.

    No complaints but be careful of the tax added to your bill as puts your quote up when you pay the bill.

    Very good

    The staff was friendly, competent, and altogether delightful.

    The coke machine in the corridor across from my room was extremely noisy, and I could not change room for the whole stay, in spite of asking for a change every day.

    Good

    The hotel is run down and tired and offers very few amenities. It relies on its location and undercutting the better hotels

    Rooms are tired and unclean. The air conditioning didnt work. The hotel is old but could be upgraded to a boutique quality qwithout alot of capital

    Fabulous

    The location of the hotel is really perfect, I usually select ocean view rooms. Although other hotels are new in same location but this one is excellent.

    I stayed 4 nights, so I need at least coin laundry in the hotel.

    Good

    Surly staff, poor parking. No breakfast available at all - will never do this again and I should have been warned about it - is this a new idea - what next? Lousy one cup coffee maker with rubbish coffee.

    Fabulous

    The location was good, just across the road from the beach and a nice part of Santa Monica

    I think it was quite expensive for what it was! We paid more to stay here than a sweet hotel room at Caesars Palace!

    Fabulous

    The hotel was especially convenient and quite comfortable for the price. A real value in a perfect location for our plans. We especially want to compliment Desk Manager Jose Lopez. He was very friendly and super helpful in recommending places to eat and transportation options for connections to the airport. Bravos to Jose!

    Exceptional

    Loved the nice, clean room close to beach and shopping for a great price!

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The staff was absolutely fantastic. Balconies were very nice and access to the pier and the beach were excellent

    Traffic was extremely noisy. No microwave in the room and coffee maker made one cup at a time, coffee was very weak and only one cup of coffee was provided.

    Fabulous

    We found the staff very friendly and welcoming after a long trip. Gave us ideas where to eat etc. the next day we noticed that Cirque de sole was across the street at the beach and I would have loved to have known that. Very pleasant stay. I would return Carol and Mike Canada

    Fabulous

    The Staff were lovely and the location is excellent.

    I had a courtyard view which was just looked out onto other balconies and a carpark. I guess I expected the outlook to be a little nicer. I wish I had of got the ocean vew room.
