This hotel was walking distance to the beach and restaurants. We didn't need the car once we parked it.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was great, not too far from the pier and very close to the Promenade.
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.
Great for the Money
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.
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.
Not what you expect
Dated, dirty, cheap, stickey
Lost our reservations
The staff was nice.
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.
Horrible front desk service
Older man at front desk was rude upon my check in a just totally ruined my stay there.
Great location to get to the pier and the promenade. Good dining options within walking distance.
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.
A stay at Hotel Carmel places you in the heart of Santa Monica, steps from Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Place. Featured amenities include a computer station, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff.
