    a comfortable place to land”

    A much more affordable spot if you are willing to walk a bit or take an Uber or Lyft. You can still enjoy everything Santa Monica has to offer, as well as the rest of LA. Beds are very comfy and rooms/bathrooms are spacious and clean. Be sure to request the top floor. I switched rooms because the people above me kept me up most of the first night there--lots of stomping around. Staff was really nice and accomodating, however.

    A good choice for Santa Monica on a budget”

    The hotel room was clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. There are not a lot of amenities, but the free breakfast was nice. The location is about a 5 to 10 minute drive to Santa Monica Pier, but there isn’t much directly around the hotel itself. My only complaint is that when we turned on the AC, there was a strong mold smell. We opted for just keeping the window open and the smell went away fairly quickly.

    Comfortable stay with family”

    Spacious rooms, thanks for the breakfast cupons, friendly and helpful staff making the stay comfortable. The breakfast has variety even though it is the same selection daily. The front desk staff helped us to book a taxi to the airport. If travelling as a couple or family, it is good to use taxi service as it's more value for money than paying for airport shuttle. Bus stops nearby can bring you to downtown Santa Monica or other parts of Los Angeles.

    Suitable for our needs, free parking a +”

    We were in town to visit family so not spending a lot of time in our room. That made our stay perfectly fine. If you're looking for a top-notch aesthetic this is not the place for you, but it was clean, with all the amenities we needed. We weren't expecting continental breakfast but it was available so that was a value add, although not as extensive as some of the well-known chains might offer. Would we stay here again? Probably yes. We don't need a plush room overlooking the beach, and the convenience of easy access to main roads is a plus.

    Not big enough for a crib ”

    This review is solely for travellers with kids that need a crib. The room is simply not big enough to fit a crib comfortably. It ended being squished into a corner. The A/C is also very strong and makes almost half the room too cold to place a crib (even when the fan is on low.) The breakfast was also too sugar-heavy to feed anything to my 1-year-old. It could’ve used some eggs or cheese. If you have a kid that needs a crib, look elsewhere.
