Big room with everything we needed. Comfortable beds and pillows and a full kitchen with everything you could need. Thin walls so we could hear the neighbours like they were in the same room but it wasn’t a big problem. Parking was expensive but we found it was handy to have available as there wasn’t anything else available in the area. Great location for walking to the shopping and restaurants and a nice walk to the pier. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Good value, would return

Pros: Location and cleanliness.
Cons: Provide instructions on how to operate the coffee machine!
Location: Third Street promenade is a delight. Bike riding from Santa Monica to Venus beach on a Sunday afternoon was lots of fun. Sunset at the Pier gorgeous.
The room is old and dated as we expected but very clean and quite spacious. If you are a family of five you will need a roll out bed as the doubles are really only fit for one person. The staff were excellent and tried really hard to get us checked in early as we had arrived early from Australia. The location is excellent. We had some noisy neighbours and sound does seem to travel through the old building. Having a full kitchen is a bonus.

Great location and comfortable

Pros: Location, Location and the staff were great . Comfy , spacious rooms
Cons: Décor out-dated
Location: everything Santa Monica has to offer is within walking distance . Hop on Hop off bus stop is just around the corner, $30 Uber to Hollywood .
While a little dated ,we really enjoyed our stay. Super lovely staff, close to everything Santa Monica offers. comfy , spacious , just the décor is a bit 80's but really who cares . great value for money.
