2/10 Terrible


The hotel’s accommodation system is an ABSOLUTE DISASTER. I have NEVER rated 2 out of 10 for a hotel, but I cannot let this one go. Talking to a front desk agent is never going to help, as the next front desk agent taking the next shift will know nothing about your request. The night before I checked out, I wished to extend the checkout time to 2pm. I asked a security staff, because there was no front desk staff there. She told me that she could submit a request for me and note that I stayed here for 7 days 6 nights here. The next morning, a staff knocked on my door at 11am, claiming that there was NO request for checkout extension on the system and NO payment submitted, so we must get out of the room before 12 for the “early check-in guests waiting for our room”. We were confused and mad but still started packing, but we were not able to finish packing by 12. Here comes the most ridiculous part. A staff knocked on our door loudly WITH A SECURITY STAFF, telling us there was no record of our request on the system and they would charge us for late checkouts. The “early check-in guests waiting for our room” miraculously disappeared and we could somehow extend our checkout times now. WOW. There was another annoying thing about accommodation during my stay, but I won’t expand on that. I’m never going to stay here again.

Staff was friendly and helpful. A cleaning staff member entered the room before checkout time without even knocking claiming that I had already checked out, but I had not. We requested late checkout and it was approved, then the next morning it was rescinded and the room was rented to someone else. They need to ge their processes fixed. Will not stay at another property with minimal staff and broken online processes.

Business trip to Santa Monica
Room was big and bed was very comfortable. It was very clean, staff was very friendly and helpful. I was very please with the accommodations. Only thing is I wish they would patrol the parking in the garage better. Some people were parked outside the lines actually into the next parking spot, making it impossible to park in some spots.

I found cockroach at the bathroom and the for 3 days the room was not cleaned they just change the towels. Also the parking entrance was higher on the left side, i was worried every time I had to leave the hotel that the rental car might be damage. plus they didn't care about my complaint for 2 weeks.

Really nice place, room is bigger than an actual hotel room, staff are very helpful and close to everything. If you have a car, you always find parking, if it’s not inside, you can find outdoor. Definitely recommend this place

Great stay!
Amazing property! Parking was tight & limited, but Nice common area with pool table & bar (but no liquor license so I guess you can call it a dry bar) that’s ok, there was a popular bar across the street called Mom’s Very enjoyable stay
