The size of the suites was a very pleasant surprise. I was grateful I found the Cal Mar on your website. There were other members of my extended family who stayed there also and they were singing my praises for finding a place with so much room. The location was perfect for our purposes.
The bathroom had no counter space.
Excellent location for recovery from jetlag. 30 minutes by taxi from LAX, quiet, clean, close to good eateries, shops and the beach.
I really liked the location. It's just one block away from 3rd Street Promenade, so I could shop til the stores close. Plus, Santa Monica Pier is just about 10 min walk from the hotel. Also, the room has a kitchen with silverwares, plates, pans & a microwave. When I got tired of eating out, I got food from Farmer's Market & cooked.
One of the lights in the dining room was broken, which was not a big problem though.
Plenty of space, great location, pleasant staff, reasonable parking charges
No air-con, pool not open until 9am
Hotel has large rooms (I had pool view) and two TV sets. It is walking distance to the beach and very close to the shop street on 3rd avenue
It is quite noisy as outside walls are not sound proof. Kichen could also be better (it reminded me my grandma's kitchen)
