4.5 Mediocre
Pros:Staff was friendly and helpful. Proximity to the promenade and the beach was great. But hard to enjoy without sleep.
Cons:The place is run down. Old furniture and mattresses. And really felt like the furniture didn't really fit in the rooms. Why is there a footboard on the bed that sticks out 8 inches at chin height? And the NOISE. Downtown Santa Monica is loud. I expected some noise. They put us right above the alley backed up against a bar. So party until 2 am, then delivery trucks at 6 am. So only a 4-hour window for sleep. And the walls and windows are old and have not been updated, so they are thin and do nothing to block out noise. The pillows were also old and lumpy. And the bed was too small for the room.
8.0 Very good
Pros:This hotel was walking distance to the beach and restaurants. We didn't need the car once we parked it.
6.2 Okay
Pros:The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was great, not too far from the pier and very close to the Promenade.
Cons:For the price we paid for the room, the parking should have been included. The lobby was beautiful, but it seemed as though it was just a ruse as the rooms and the rest of the hotel was not upkept very well.
8.0 Very good
Pros:If you don't like to drive around much, this is your hotel. Just valet park your car ($20/night) and walk. Everything is nearby, movies, great choice of restaurants, the Santa Monica Pier and of course the beach.
Cons:Wifi leaves little to be desired. Cellular signal is 4G so you have to jockey around for a good enough signal. The hotel itself is dated but comfortable. Small TV's in the room but who cares.
5.7 Fair
Cons:Dated, dirty, cheap, stickey
2.0 Poor
Pros:The staff was nice.
Cons:They had no record of our reservation, and they were all booked up. I had ten teenagers with me, hundreds of miles from home, with no place to stay. They helped us find another hotel, but it was almost double the price. Very stressful.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Older man at front desk was rude upon my check in a just totally ruined my stay there.
Cons:Your staff..
6.2 Okay
Pros:Great location to get to the pier and the promenade. Good dining options within walking distance.
Cons:The first night we arrived was SO loud! There must have been a party at the hostel across the street but it felt like it was in our room. The music didn't stop until 3am.
