Pleasantly surprised by this hotel!

Room and location were ok. However, very little water pressure in the shower, no coffee or tea in the room. The sign says to ask for it at the reception, but I was leaving at 5:30am and it was too early and no time to get it. The free bottle of wine that they advertised is a joke - 1 mini bottle of sutter home. Kind of absurd. Better not to mention it than advertise as some sort of special deal.

Excellent, friendly, accommodating staff. Spacious room. Great location. Convenient for public transportation in Santa Monica. Would return again.

Glad I found this place. Super clean and generally pleasant. I'll definitely return when I come bak to LA

Close to the pier

Nice staff. Affordable. Good location and plentiful parking. Right by Socalo restaurant. Good air conditioning. Beds were too soft, and sound from the floor above traveled into our room too easily. The guy upstairs constantly paced and thudded, startling us awake.

Place was great, however only 2 elevators and they lock all the stairwell doors without access card. Waste a bunch of time waiting to get upstairs.

The staff was very nice

As some of our services are still restricted due to the pandemic, we have to provide the amenities to our guests in the safest way possible. However, please be aware that we can always send the coffee supplies to your room at anytime even the night before so you can have it ready for the early morning.
