The location was great and accessible to most everything. It was clean and the staff hospitable. It doesn’t have its own eat in restaurant but vouchers are available to use at a another nearby hotel to be used for breakfast . We took advantage of this since it was just a few steps away and the breakfast selection was very good . The food was delicious and the presentation was pleasing to the eye. I definitely recommend staying in this hotel.

So we were greeted nicely and given a room on time. The room had several things wrong. The window looking out to the ocean was dirty, the remote did not work, and the toilet paper holder was broken. The WORST thing was the toilet above us flooded and it pored down on me as I went to open my front door. Then the next morning my shower was backed up with a sewage. It smelled terrible and we were not able to take a shower. I told the staff the night it happened and the next morning and all they did was give me the convenience fee back of $50. I expected much more and I would not of complained. The manager stated he could not refund me because I went through travelocity. I expect more from a hotel in Santa Monica and the fact that they could not refund me at least one night is ridiculous.
