Parking was way too expensive

I liked the view and the location. Very nice people and property.

I liked the location. But the sheets were dirty, it was very noisy.

Good place to stay, I will definitely do it again!

We loved that it was a short walk across the street to the beach. This was incredibly convenient. However, it is a very loud hotel. Do not plan to sleep in here. You can hear every conversation in the hallway, every toddler whining in the hallway, and the housekeeping staff were quite loud hollering to each other at 8am in the hallway. We could also clearly hear complete conversations from the room adjoining ours. At 3:30am on two of our 5 nights there. The air conditioning is ancient and extremely loud as well.

I did not like waiting until 3pm to check into the room when I was told I could drop by bags and my room would be ready at 11am. I paid for a room with two beds and an ocean front view. I got a back room with one bed and a view of an alley over a noisy parking lot.

The only thing I did not like was that I wasn’t aware of the parking fee

Pros: -Location is an A . Right across the street from the Sta Monica Pier and walking distance to soooo many restaurants, and shops at Third St Promenade. You literally don’t need a car. -If you’re about the “little things” such as the bathroom amenities, they had 10oz toiletries (shamp/cond/bodywash etc) which was a pleasant surprise. -Rooms have a balcony -Modern esthetic Cons: -Our room was courtyard-facing so we basically overlooked the valet from our balcony; They were quite loud plus you can hear the cars. Even if your room is ocean-facing, it would still be loud as you’re not pushed back enough from the street. -Although i liked the shutter blinds in the room esthethically, if you’re a fan of sleeping in without being blinded by brightness, be prepared as there are no blackout curtains AT ALL. -No microwave in the room if thats a plus for you -Elevator is weird and always takes a long time

Excelent manager on site! Excelent services thank you for all! Francisco E 5109276118

Nice view & clean. All I need in the bathroom (makeup mirror, lotion, etc). Mattress need update little sunken for my bad back. After all, all wonderful.

Very pleasant atmosphere. Friendly staff and the location is great

Great ocean view!!! We were there trying to catch the bioluminescent but it was already farther south! No problem tho, we had a wonderful time!! Unfortunately there were a group of 15-20 people that started a partying at like 11pm. Until 3am. Aside from that we had a wonderful time!

The rooms were very clean… The staff was very nice… The view was amazing… Very nice hotel

Amazing! Everything was perfect! Would definitely stay here again !
