Gateway Hotel Santa Monica
Ranked #16 of 36 Hotels in Santa Monica
Reviewed 12 September 2017

we've used this hotel for business travel and it has been satisfactory for us. Clean, comfortable, and safe. It is not close to the pier as in the Google photos but a short Lyft or Uber will get you there in about 10 mins. It is expensive, but this is standard for Santa Monica and Coastal Southern CA in general. This is a hotel to rest in, not hang out in.

Room Tip: it is in a busy area in Santa Monica near a hospital not on the beach.

This hotel is a clean, comfortable and safe place to stay. Parking is FREE which is a plus. Venice beach and Santa Monica pier is a quick and cheap UBER drive away. LA Tours picks up and drops off right at the hotel.

The staff at Best Western in Santa Monica is always caring and accommodating to our needs. This is our fourth stay and we will be back again. The location is conveniently located to freeways, the beach, restaurants and shopping. Just a block from St. John's Hospital.

We booked last minute online and the price was right. Angie was extremely helpful and kind when registering. We arrived early and we were able to get an early check-in and adjoining rooms. Clean comfortable rooms and an overall pleasant experience.

The location is perfect, everything is close by, parking is free an easy to access and the rates are very reasonable for the area. I will stay here again. If you like to walk, you can walk to the beach, shopping districts and the fine restaurants in the area.
