Although $75 a night doesn't seem cheap, it's the lowest you can get in the Santa Monica/Venice Beach area, which is where all the fun and nightlife is (especially Abbot Kinney, a hipster bar/restaurant strip in Venice). Anything cheaper will be a 30 minute drive away on freeways in (more dangerous) South Central LA. The place is quite run down,...

This motel was terrible. The facilities were very basic (which is fine for the price), but the Bed Bugs were not fine. There were so many of them we could watch them walking around the bed at night time. I got 70 bites.

My experience was horrible. The man Sidd (orerater of motel)goes in guests room without their permission. If you leave you key in the door, he takes it, then makes you pay a key deposit again which by the way He preys on you forgetting to ask for your key deposit back so he can go get high with it.oh i...

Cozy Ma and Pops hotel. The simplicity of this place is a unique quality in itself. I wanted to be someone close enough to the beach to make the trip several times - sunrise, morning, mid-day, sunset. It is in the perfect location weather you are taking a bus or driving (my little brother skated to the beach in less...

Do not stay here under any circumstances. The place is absolutely disgusting so went and looked at another one of their properties. They offered us a "nicer" place at one of their apartments which they obviously use illegally as a hotel and things went missing. We found out afterward that the place is run by a known neighborhood criminal. You...

The room, the bed and sheets smell like a barn with filthy animals. This hotel should not be an option for any dog, let alone a human being. You are better off staying at the hostel than at this motel. It is terrible and the worst hotel experience in my entire life; and I have traveled the globe. Trip Advisor...

CONS After reading the initial reviews I came prepared. I bought towels, soap and own washcloth, tolietries and purchased at the local store clorox, paper towel, toliet paper (they did have some) and air freshners. To turn on the air conditioner, I had to jump on the bed and fiddle with it to jump start and it took a while...

I booked in by internet, but the owner did not know it. In the homepage you have to get an credit-card-No. But you can't bay by credit or debit. Only cache! The rooms are dirty and smelly. The toilet locked uncleaned at all! I got a no-smoking room, but it smelled like a smoker-room. Never, ever go there. After one...

This was my first experience in Santa Monica and I could have been more pleased about choosing this motel. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a great deal in a great location, this is the spot for you. I can not say enough about the staff. They were...

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.
