“Good value hotel at a very accessible location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

I stayed three weeks at Travelodge during my biz trip in late Feb. Good value. Friendly staff.

It is very accessible and close to Santa Monica Business Park. One can take bus easily to go downtown or LA. There are some nice restaurants on Pico (Upper West) and Ocean Park Blvd (Miyako).

It is not a fancy hotel. No Ethernet connectivity. Wifi Internet access is good with some expected congestions at night. There is HDTV in guest room. I will bring my iPad, HDMI adaptor & cable next time staying at Travelodge:)

My friend and I planned a Santa Monica/LA trip and decided to have our "home base" in Santa Monica. We booked Travel Lodge via our Expedia pkg. The price was in our range,and it looked decent enough.

The place was clean, the staff was friendly. We were on the second floor facing a side street and honestly, it was pretty darn quiet for the city. Our bed was comfy and the amenities adequate for our needs and for the price.

We could also use the computer to print maps for our sightseeing (I think it was $1 per page or something). The maid broke my night light that I brought, but, oh well.

I'm not a city person and I felt safe here. And as we discovered...I think Pico goes from the beach to perhaps outer Siberia...it is for sure a main artery.

Some steep staircases. I'm not aware if they had an elevator, so if you have mobility issues, be sure to let them know so they put you on the main floor. I like the upper floor so I don't have to listen to people walk on my head. For an older building, I heard very little from any of our neighbors. I think we stayed there 4 or 5 nights.

The parking can be a little odd. There are two parking lots. One night we got back late and could not find a spot. Someone came out and helped us locate one...if you could call it that. Parking spaces in Cali or in LA are tiny.

Good neat hotel. Bus just down the road that takes you down to santa monica beach (not walking distance). Would need a car if staying at this hotel. Very attentive staff and great customer service. Were able to offer several places to eat within walking distance (we didn't have a car - which is a must have in LA apparently).

We stayed one night and went to the beach both days. The room was very clean and comfortable. The parking is kind of tight, but it is free so you can't complain. Short drive to the beach. Highly recommended for the money spent!

Room Tip: Trader Joe's is right next door and there is a .99 store a few blocks towards the Ocean. If you...
