We were three adults sharing a two double bedroom. And it was smaller than Australian double beds - more like a king single. Staff were very friendly and helpful however didn't compensate for noisy guest and outside traffic. Our room was located on the lift lobby and we struggled with noisy guest all night banging doors and talking loudly. Room...

Dear alimiamax, I apologize that you feel that the hotel staff wasn't able to compensate for the noise disruption you encountered during your stay . That is not the type of experience we try to offer. We know that being at the beach commands a high price and with that high expectations. Feedback like yours is helpful to know if...

We just returned from Santa Monica. We had a balcony facing the beach and we were very pleased with the hotel and staff. Our valet guys provided quick service. You can't go wrong with this hotel or the location. You can walk just about anywhere to shop or dine or walk on the beach.

After a 16 hour flight, I was pleased that I had emailed this hotel before arriving and requested early check in. Our room was ready at 11.30am. Position of the hotel was fantastic. No ocean view from our room, but as soon as you walked out the front door, the ocean was across the road. A short walk to Santa...

This hotel is right on the beach as the name suggests. The rooms are big enough and clean. If you want peace and quite this is not the hotel for you can hear everyone coming and going.

Not a bad hotel, great location right on the seafront and close to the shops. However, dont fall for paying more for a "private courtyard balcony". It wont be private, it will be looked over by pretty much all other balconies, and most importantly the courtyard is the parking lot. There are a few plants on the concrete overheads but...

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.
