Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The properties location was spectacular. The staff was always present in the lobby and available for valet parking and suggestions of restaurants and other areas to see. The hotel was clean and the rooms were somewhat older but well taken care of. The beds were comfortable and towels and soaps were available as needed. I would certainly do another stay there in the future

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property was very outdated. The carpet in our room was stained and you could hear the neighbors talking through the vent in the bathroom. The location is the only bonus with this property. We had to Valet for $30 for one night. When I went to get my car in the morning I had to go get it myself because I drive a manual Mustang and the Valet guy didn't know how to drive it. Definitely not worth the $300 we paid for 1 night but that's what you get for spontaneously driving into Santa Monica on a Saturday and all the hotels are booked.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
The best part was that it was centrally located to the beach, dining and shops. It was disappointing that there was no mini fridge or microwave in the room. You had to go to the front desk for ice. My room was located off of the alley and every morning at 630, a noisy truck came through so there was no chance of sleeping past that time.
