    Quirky spot and amazing staff. Needs a little love and care, but loved the overall experience. So central and near the action. Great place to kick back and take in the overall vibe. Thanks James and JP!!

    I took my family on a trip down the California coast and this was the perfect place to finish our vacation. Easily the best hotel for us seeing that we were on a budget. The other hotels in the area were close to $200 more...More

    Great location on the beach of Santa Monica with lots of things to do for people of any age. Beaches are crowded. You can walk to lots of places from the hotel because it has a great location. Workers are very nice.

    OK, tough trade-offs going on here, bottom line: one of the cheaper non-dive hotels in a white-hot great location right next to hotels that are 75% more expensive (but THC charges $36 parking - cheaper public parking is almost never available). Ex: Loews Santa Monica...More

    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
