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.

Super staff, great location.

This hotel was as billed with a great location 5 minutes walk from the ocean or the 3rd street promenade shopping and restaurant area. The desk and valet staff was very helpful, especially during our last day. Check out was at 11 but our plane did not leave until 10:15 that night, however the hotel let us park in the garage and store our suitcases and also provided bottled water and beach towels for us to use during the day. Very convenient! The only complaint about our stay was that the wi-fi at night in the room was very poor most of the time when I imagine many people were trying to access it. If this were corrected it would get a 5 star rating from my family!

Hotel was nice with modern updates. Be aware you do have to pay for parking per night. And the view of the beach on the website is a little misleading. The beach is not as close as the website makes it look.
