We stayed in this motel during the last Christmas vacation. It used to be a pretty dumpy place but what a change! The rooms are clean and nice, though they can use some updating with beds and carpets particularly. They are doing a lot of updating as well so this is likely to improvel. This hotel has a very convenient...

A dirty run down motel with no luxury, no service at all, it's dirty, there are rats and bugs, the rooms and bathrooms are NOT clean and it's way too expensive. The parking is cramped and the neighbourhood is not welcoming. The only positive is that you only have to walk about 25 minutes to the beach or downtown. 580$...

The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful with all of our needs. They let us store our bikes (in big boxes) before our evening flight, allowing us to enjoy our day in Santa Monica. Rooms newly furnished and clean. Good place to stay.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
