Ideally located near the Pier and the shops.
Big bedroom with a separated living room. The place is clean and cosy but quite dark (dark wood all over, colonial style). Good wifi in the room.
Can be a bit noisy at night, as our room...More

Thanks for being a guest at Hotel Carmel. We appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you during your visit to Santa Monica. We also appreciate your feedback and your suggestions from your stay with us. However, there is one important point of clarification...More
Location is fantastic for shopping & the pier. Hotel room was clean & comfortable. I probably wouldn't stay here again due to how noisy the room was. It is not the hotels fault and noise is expected in such a location, but the room I...More

Thank you for the four bubble review from your recent stay with us at Hotel Carmel. While I'm thrilled to read all of your positive feedback, I'm also concerned that we were not proactive in communicating with you regarding a mix-up with the keys and...More
We spent 2 nights here in late November. The location couldn't have been better with a short walk to pier/beach one way and a block the other way to the 3rd Street Promenade. The place is a little older/dated but very clean and beds very...More

I'm not one for flashy accommodation when on holiday I just want somewhere to sleep at night but I couldn't get that here. We had a room by the courtyard of air con units which were insanely noisy and when I rang reception to change...More

I'm very disappointed to read your review of our hotel. We strive for a much more favorable guest experience than you have described and I'm very sorry our team was not more focused on taking care of you. I'm also not sure who...More
Great location, very close to shops and beach but the room facilities are lacking. There is no bar fridge, but no tea/coffee making facilities either so the only time you can get a coffee is in the morning before 10.00am when there is coffee and...More

I'm very sorry we left you with a less than favorable impression of our amenity offerings. I completely understand your preference for coffee service in your guest room as well as a refrigerator. However, the historic nature of our building limits our capabilities...More
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.
