What a beautiful place right near the Santa Monica Pier and on the beach. The motel staff are really friendly and the rooms etc very clean. The Restaurant gave us generous serves and it was absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend a stay here and if we were to return I would be booking this Hotel.

Great location, great view. Needs some polishing on finishes such as bathroom tile. One of the elevators was down on the main bank and seemed it had been, so not a new problem. Not acceptable when paying this level of rates. Service was spotty.

I'm sure that, like me, you'll enjoy this excellent hotel, close to the beach, restaurant and highway. Excellent place, service, personnel with large room and great breakfast and food. No risk with this choice.

I chose this hotel because Lowes has good benefits for kids and I have a 3 year old. This hotel will deliver some toys to your room for your child to "borrow" while at the hotel which I think is a great program. Also, they delivered a mini fridge to the room so we could purchase some groceries. The hotel...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
