We were lucky to stay in the new section, cleaner, bigger rooms. The old section is really old and the rooms are small and they were doing remodeling in some of the older rooms.the staff was very friendly and efficient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"breakfast a bonus."
Cleanliness was very good. Breakfast included was very good and a nice bounus. Location a little further out than we had expected but all in all quite good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"shabby Motel 6"
when one comes at 9:30 PM after a day of driving he/she would expect an advice where to get a dinner, right? The desk person told us there is none around?! Com'on! The hotel is more like a shabby Motel 6 on a highway than the Inn in Santa Monica. The pool is closed btw. 6PM and 10 AM.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Older property very well managed"
This is an inexpensive hotel (motel) on Santa Monica about 1.3 miles from the beach. My expectations were not high. What I found was an older property with rooms opening onto walkways overlooking an inner courtyard. Nothing fancy but a comfortable bed, nice TV, very clean and well kept with plenty of parking. Close to a lot of places but LA traffic […] can make 2 miles a 45 minute drive. My expectations were exceeded and will recommend this to my friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the hotel--just surprised that the person who talked to me initially gave me information that was completely the opposite which cost me time, money, and frayed the nerves of my parents. Next time, don't lie to potential patrons about the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were able to check in early. We had a room that faced Santa Monica Blvd and it was a little noisy during the day but settled down after dark. For the price it was perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Apartment Hunting in Santa Monica"
We were apartment hunting in Santa Monica and needed a hotel that was in the city, but not terrible expensive and on the beach. The hotel was a bit outdated, but still clean and comfortable. The location was also very convenient. My only complaint was that tt was a bit expensive for the overall quality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The comfort inn"
This hotel is only worth it for its proximity to other nearby areas - Santa Monica pier, Malibu, Hollywood, etc. as far as quality of the upkeep of the hotel, I would say it's not the best, and looks a little rundown. There is a free breakfast buffet, though!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

A big improvement on the "old" comfort inn. much cleaner and nicely decorated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Comfort Inn Near Santa Monica Pier"
The Comfort Inn was convenient to the Santa Monica Pier. We actually chose it because we felt it would be close to the UCLA campus. Mileage wise that's correct but still took 30-45 minutes to get their depending on the time of day. The hotel was clean and in good condition and the front desk was easy to work with. Breakfast buffet had a good selection […] and good quality. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good choice for the money."
Good and free continental breakfast. Nice staff and good location.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was conveniently located. I appeared that renovations were underway which was encouraging as it needed much maintenance inside the room and in the open spaces and stairs. Staff were friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Breakfast is good"
Coffe port is unclean. Wifi is unstable.Location is not bad. Breakfast is good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good, but noisy at night"
We were awakened around 5. People walking in their rooms, getting ready for an earlier check out. Get a room upstairs. Avoid also the rooms close to the St Monica Avenue. Buses start early and so does the noisy. Other than that it was ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were surprised to find how far the hotel was from the Santa Monica beach but that was our fault for not checking closely enough when we booked.There was a bus you could catch out the front that went down the 28 streets to get to the beach for only $1. We were even more surprised that the hotel did not have a luggage storage room for the day we left. […] I haven't come across a hotel or even hostel that doesn't have ths service. Neverthe less we were allowed to leave our bags in a corner in the loby . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Santa Monica Vacation"
The overall experience was good. Staff was professional, courteous and very helpful. The only disappointment that we found was that we would have preferred to be closer to the Santa Monica downtown area so that we could walk there. However, the hotel is located on a bus route and there was adequate downtown parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not business traveler friendly"
Not a place for a female traveling on their own. Rooms open up on to open air - no hallway and no real security. Breakfast was all starch. Unable to hold or store luggage for travelers. The staff was very courteous and there was computer access.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfort Inn, Santa Monica - not the Ritz but met m"
Other than someone's hair on my towel and the classic 'motel room smell', the room was fine. Noise was minimal, breakfast was plentiful, wish I had brought my swim suit..... The room was no smoking but you could tell that, over the years, smoke had drifted into the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient for the beach."
Booked this hotel because we had stayed in Comfort Inn properties before and found them clean and good value. Nice to have breakfast included even if it was only buffet continental. Bus stop right outside meant easy access to Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach. Staff were helpful when booking tours and cleanliness of room and public areas was good. […] Would recommend this hotel to couples of more mature years as there was no night life close by for younger people. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fine room, cheap, but very noisy"
The room was fine, the service was fine, the kids enjoyed the make-your-own waffles for breakfast. However, the hotel is on busy Santa Monica Boulevard. The street has heavy traffic round the clock, including buses. We had the second room in from the street, but the door was flimsy. It was very loud. The set up, where there are tables in a communal […] area right outside the room doors also meant noise in the room during the day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very Low Budget Hotel with Mid-budget price tag"
It was like walking into the set of My Name is Earl. It was rather pricey for what it was. Everything was extremely old and probably had been used for decades. I also watched the Hotel front desk employees scramble to reassign rooms because they had given someone keys to a room that was already occupied! Yikes!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean. Nothing special but good accommodations for overnight stay. Affordable. About 26 blocks from beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfort Inn Santa Monica"
I treated my two young nieces to five days in Santa Monica. The room was very spacious and had a king and queen bed in it which was perfect for sleeping the three of us. It was quiet too. The complimentry breakfast was fine as well. Lots of parking was a plus and it was just two blocks from a Starbucks and McDonalds. It worked out quite well for us […] .

"Old and Rundown"
For the money, I expected a much nicer property. The rooms were clean but old and rundown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"pretty good hotel"
the location is very good. It is close to the beach and the downtown of Santa Monica. You can take $1 bus to go to shopping or go to the beach. I guess because of location it is expensive but overall I had good experience. Oh, and the breakfast is very good!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"a great bargain for seaside fun"
I stayed here with my two little granddaughters for five nights and had a wonderful time. We did not want to leave on closing day. Santa Monica has its problems, and the hotel offered a good respite at the day's start and end. The hotel was safe, clean, and quiet - and conveniently close to all of the attractions of Los Angeles and the Santa Monica […] pier, beaches, Third Street, Montana Ave., and other sights. The staff was extremely helpful; the breakfast was delicious, and the pool was a great recreation for the kids after bus tours of the sights and days at the ocean. I heartily recommend the Comfort Inn and will be sure to return soon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Comfort Inn near Santa Monica"
I stayed in this hotel and I really liked it! The rooms are pretty nice, clean and comfortable. They are equipped with refridgerators, free wireless internet,... The employees are really nice and helpful! The breakfast is great and abudant. The pool is small but sufficient. If you want to go to the beach you can eighter take the "Big Blue Bus" (for […] 1$) or you can walk there (ca. 1/2h). The bech is beautiful and dependig on the weather (most of the time its not that hot, rather windy and fresh) swimming is feasible. All in all I would recomend this hotel and if I come back one time I would book it again, too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Please get new bedding and teach Asst. Manager some Customer Service skills!"
I chose this hotel mainly for the location as I had a job interview nearby. When I stepped into my assigned room, I got to smell that unpleasant cheap motel smell. Old comforters that had been mended, and probably an ancient carpet. A real downer, especially given that I had not paid a cheap rate. Pluses: the continental breakfast the next morning […] was decent. I did get a okay night's sleep-- the hotel was fairly quiet in the evening. Minuses: The biggest complaint was that when I was checking out, the asst. manager tried to tack on a small fee for the room safe, which I did not use. The charge is still on my bank acct., even though he assured me it wouldn't be. I also ordered a cab to my interview site, and instead he ordered a private airport shuttle van-- by the time it came it was too late to change it, and I'm sure I paid more than I would have had to for a regular cab. Finally, while I was waiting, he went on a loud rant against another hotel customer who was coming later and the medical facility who had referred her. Very unprofessional! I will not be staying at a Comfort Inn again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good location, adequate room"
Were in town scouting the area for our move there this summer. For this purpose and the price, the room was fine. Nothing luxurious, but good enough for what we needed. Pros: Good location. Easy access to beach and 3rd St by city bus (stops outside of hotel), car, or long walk. Easy access to 405 and 10 to get to other parts of the city. Comfortable […] bed & pillows. Room had microwave and mini fridge. Neutrals: Breakfast was average continental (apples, bananas, cold cereal, instant oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, toast, english muffins, doughnuts, cheese cubes) with added bonus of waffle maker. Room relatively clean (except downside of bathroom, see below). Cons: Had room by the breakfast area which meant hearing the timer go off on the waffle maker every 2-3 minutes from 6am to 10am. Plus some of the breakfast tables are outside in the little courtyard so you hear the noise from people/kids talking. Some water damage in the bathroom in the area around the shower (trim around the door by the floor and the side of the sink vanity by the tub was kind of rotting).

"Price & internet"
The internet is not wireless. We have 3 computers only one can connect. It is a bit pricy compare to the hotel we stay in San Diego.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Service was HORRIBLE"
This hotel has the worst service I have ever come across. The employees and particularly the Manager were extremely rude. I had questions regarding our stay and they yelled at me and told me there was absolutely nothing they could do. They had the nerve to tell me that it was my fault for not planning ahead for something that could not have been avoided. […] It was the worst hotel experience I have ever had regarding service.

"Nice, basic, clean, convienent hotel."
The hotel was right near the one of the bus stops for the Santa Monica buses, which was perfect for getting around without having to drive. I was initially concerned about having a first floor room, but the windows and doors faces a gated inner courtyard. We got plenty of light and the security that not anyone can come up to the door. The attendants […] at check in nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. This was a nice hotel for the short business trip that we needed it to be and would recommend it for that. We were not looking for a romantic hotel or a hotel that be a star player in our trip. We were interested in a hotel that was easy to get to, reasonably priced, and clean; and that is what we got.

Hotel is clean with a good selection of food at breakfast. The rooms are old fashioned but very spacious. My only problem was the shower, its very low down so for a tall person (I'm only 5'8"!) I was bent over to wash my hair! The location is good but atleast 3miles from the pier so a car or taxi is requiredGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Clean and tidy hotel with a good breakfast. Bad marks for "hidden extras" like use of safe overnight, and front desk man seemed to make up price for additional nights......when I looked on Hotels.com found price to be so much better.....even at other locationsGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Comfort inn good for the money"
I have stayed in this location several times. There is a Days Inn a a block or two away which is the same price but has no swimming pool. So - this hotel gets it for that even though the pool area is not the most attractive. Good value for money. Will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Brekkie was all anyone needs. Waffle maker was great. Internet was fantastic, very fast. We hired a car for our stay so getting into town was fine. Would definately stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Too far from Pier"
The breakfast room was very small and badly set out so it was a bit if a scramble to get any food. The food was basic but ok. I hated he paper plates and cups and plastic cutlery but understand why it is like that. Near the Pier is a joke it is about 15 minutes on the bus and too far to walk, it's about 2 1/2 miles. The buses run frequently from outside […] and cost $1 one way. Trips with Amazing LA Tours are very good and they are very professional. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Was a stop over for our drive down the coast. Overall a little disappointing, further from the pier than we anticipated.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel but not near the pier"
Hotel was great value, clean and breakfast included was very good. For our needs the room was ideal althought the description about being near the Pier is not accurate. It is easy to catch bus to and back from the Pier but not possible to walk. There are food outlets very nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
