Can't beat the location. ”
Can't beat the location. One block from the beach, one block from 3rd Street promenade. Very walkable to all must seen locations of SM. We had our 15 month old daughter with us so this was an important factor for us. Its a nice kids friendly hotel. Very spacious apartment so our daughter had plenty of space to explore. Yes its old but clean. There is a pool which we didn't use, but lots of kids seemed to enjoy it. We were concerned about noise issues due to reviews we had read. Its an older building but we had no problems with noise, although some other guests might have heard our daughter crying at night (sorry!). It's a bit overpriced, but again its prime location SM, and in that area you cannot beat the price.

Bathroom a bit small. Seemed like an apartment that was converted into a hotel without hotel amenities.

Good location, spacious apartment but dated”
We booked our stay very last minute which meant prices were really expensive everywhere in Santa Monica. This place was no exception. Whilst we felt it was overpriced, I think everywhere was expensive. The apartments are really well located within a few minutes of the beach and just a block away from the main shopping/eating street which was good. The apartment was huge but very dated. I'm sure it was clean but because it was quite old it's one of those places which doesn't necessarily feel clean. The swimming pool was good and we could store our luggage and hang out by the pool after check out. Wifi was expensive and the woman on reception didn't like Agoda one bit. We had quite a few issues with our check in. The young guy on reception was really nice and helpful though.

overall is fine except i cant had good sleep ”
just 3 block to Santa Monica , could be in walking distance . Room is clean and carry all i need to have for cooking . Staff is nice
This hotel just 3 block to Santa Monica , could be in walking distance . 3 mins to 3rd Blk Shopping area. There is a Hip Off Bus stop too. Room is clean and carry all i need to have for cooking . BUt there is no supermarket nearby . Just a FoodMart , which closed at 10pm. Starbuck n Coffee Bean are right at the corner. Staff is nice and helpful. The Key point that I may not consider book again is ... the sound isolation is super poor !! My room is in G/F floor , ppl wake up and walk around at 6am, I could hear what they say clearly !! AND at night even horrible , I could hear next room snoring ! Which I wonder there is a GHOST !!!

Location, pool and room size
Great location room fantastic size but no air conditioning was a worry but good thing wasn't too hot. Rooms could do with a bit of a refresh in terms of 70's era vanity unit. However the rooms and ability to have a full working kitchen is great value

Large apartments in central santa monica”
Large rooms, kitchen facilities, close to santa monica attractions
Although an older style hotel Cal Mar offers everything you need when travelling to santa monica with a young family. Huge apartments with kitchen facilities, clean bathroom, very comfortable beds. The heated pool is a huge plus. We got a large balcony room overlooking california ave and were worried about noise but it was very quiet. We could hear our neighbours through the walls but it was manageable. Lovely friendly staff and so close to all the attractions we would stay there again when travelling through LA.

Hotel located very close to the beach and the shopping centre ( the 3rd promenade street). Friendly staff. Room is neat and tidy.
Hotel staff are very friendly and talkative. We asked airport shuttle when we go back, but they booked taxi somehow.. As we couldn't cancel, we needed to pay double for the transportation.. Other than that, everybody were helpful. Hotel is quite old but kept neat and tidy. There is no free wifi.

1) the ocean is just a couple of blocks away 2) It was clean and the least expensive in Santa Monica 3) The suite is equipped with a kitchen and living hall
Excellent location next to beach, pier and promenade. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. It has a full kitchen, dining room, living room, and bedroom. The bed is comfortable. Only drawback is that we have to pay extra for wifi. This is much disappointed because wifi is now like basic amenities!
