The staff at this location was very professional and helpful. Unfortunately, we had a room next to an alley and it was very noisy. Also, there is no carpeting on the floor and you could hear people walking around in the room above. Finally, the internet was intermittent.

Not only was the facility well run, spotless and up to date, but the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. I flew out of there early for my flight only to realize that my work ID card had slipped out of my pants that were hung in the closet. I called the hotel from the airport and by 9am the...

Stayed five nights for a business trip. I specifically asked repeatedly for a quiet room at check in asking for a higher floor and requesting away from noise. I did not sleep through a single night. due to noise from their "courtyard" such as loud laughing, employees rolling what sounded like tanks across the area, honking horns. When I complained...

This place is clean, safe and comfortable, and about a mile from the ocean. It has free parking and a very helpful staff. The I-Hop restaurant next to it is convenient if boring in its food. Most other places around are much more expensive or dives, so this is quite a find. I went for 6 days to the UCLA...

We stayed at this hotel from 25/10/14-29/10/14 and honestly couldn't fault it! Our room was spacious, clean and the bed was huge.. The reception staff were very helpful when we were deciding what activities to do and also with directions. The beach was a fair walk, but we did it everyday with no issues. There is a bus stop right...

The hotel was very clean and the staff were very attentive to our needs. This hotel is a Plus hotel, meaning it has been upgraded and the amenities are of higher quality. The location of the hotel to Saint John's Hospital was vey close and there is an IHOP restaurant right next door. We would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights after driving route 66 from Chicago. It was relatively easy to find and had an underground car park.

We stayed at the Best Western Gateway, Santa Monica, for one night after arriving at LAX on a Saturday afternoon. So pleased with our stay, we returned later in the week before departure.

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.
