"Great starting point for exploring LA ..."
Very warm welcome - great big room with comfy beds - very well equipped. Breakfast was super with toast, waffles, fruits, yoghurt etc. Pool is okay for a quick swim. It can be a bit loud due to the fact that all rooms face one central square. Location is handy - just grab the bus - either direction DownTown or direction Santa Monica.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"had a fine stay"
This hotel was fine. Friendly front desk staff. Big Blue Bus runs right down the street to the pier area for a dollar. Breakfast was full on eggs, sausage, waffles, in addition to toast and the normal cold stuff.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel for short stay"
Hotel is nice, not a walking distance to the beach but no so far also (2 mi), easy access and with a good parking lot in the back. The room is clean and relatively comfortable, just the air conditioner is quite inconvenient due to the position (bellow the window) because it blows the air straight in the direction of the bed, also, the bathroom with […] one of those bathtub curtain is not so nice. The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast with good variety and some amazing donuts! I would recommend for those who don´t mind to stay a little far from the beach and want to pay a fair price for LA. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Room was clean but a little small, exactly what i was expecting for the price. Staff was friendly. Theres alot of restaurants nearby and the beach is a short drive away. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel near Santa Monica"
This hotel was clean and the staff was nice and helpful. It is about 3 miles from the Santa Monica beach at about half the price of those hotels at the beach. Not a big deal for us since we had a car and were going to other areas also. Free parking. Breakfast area too crowded for the size of the hotel. Our room was spacious and the nicely cleaned e […] veryday. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to my meeting"
It was greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It gets the job done"
We decided to do a last minute trip to Santa Monica to meet some friends. Since it's summer in Southern California, it's "on" season which means hotel prices are outrageous. I always hate to pay a lot for a hotel room since, let's be honest, you're not really there to enjoy your room when you visit Southern California. I'd never stayed at a 2 star hotel […] so I was worried, but the reviews were decent. The room was as expected for a two star hotel. A lot of the complaints I read in reviews I wanted to respond with, "it's a two star hotel. Don't expect Holiday Inn or better amenities". Nothing spectacular but seemed to be pretty clean, which is honestly is all I cared about. The door to the bathroom had lots of dirty finger prints and the carpet in the room was older, but other than that, everything else seemed clean. I would say if you're looking for a decent place to sleep, this is fine. If you want more than that, stay somewhere else. It's older. The outside walkways are covered in that old people fake green grass type indoor/outdoor carpet. It's more like a motel in which all the rooms face an inner courtyard of tables and chairs. The breakfast buffet wasn't fabulous, but if you're just looking for some scrambled eggs and an maybe an English muffin and some coffee, it's fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"conveniently located for the price"
We combined a family wedding with a family vacation and wanted to stay in a fairly central area. The location of this hotel was ideal. only about 30 blocks from the beach so we were able to 'bop' down to the beach almost every day. It was also fairly close to both I-405 and Highway 10 and the airport. This is an older property but our room was always […] clean and well kept. Bathroom was small. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenience a big plus. Limited parking in the back so be sure to check in early. Hot breakfast. Pool closes at sunset. Accommodating with rollaway bed. Walls are paper thin and the hotel is definitely dated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location for Santa Monica sights"
Convenient spot for us and satisfied our lodging needs. Having breakfast spill over into the courtyard tables creates a little noise in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not that close to the beach"
The staff and accommodations were just what we needed but it's not that close to the beach, if that's what you're looking for. But all in all, a very good value considering our options were either a lot more expensive or less than desirable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
convenient location, fair serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location was great! Straight shot down Santa Monica blvd to 3rd st promenade and the pier. Room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. My kids liked the strawberry waffles and I enjoyed the scrambled eggs and sausage.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Centrally located in the city of Santa Monica"
Everything was great about my stay at the Comfort Inn in Santa Monica, CA; except for the fact that ... one of my room lights was not working at first ... and the bed pillows are way too small and too soft.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very nice staff......the only not good thing was our room was right by the street and we could hear traffic all nite.Genuine Expedia guest review
"More than a holiday"
The staff were always very helpful and also very local area knowledgable. The cleaning staff were very good, and also very amicable. The hotel was generally in good repair. The one downside was the size of the breakfast room, at busy times it could get a little crowded. But in general we had a very good stay. "Near Santa Monica Pier "is a little misleading […] as the hotel is past 26 Street up from Shoreline Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"In the heart of Santa Monica"
This hotel is a decent place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Santa Monica. Our room was clean and comfortable and it had a little fridge where we could keep our drinks cold overnight, which was appreciated since we were travelling. The lobby was a little mad when we checked in because there were non-guests blocking the driveway and using the […] computer (which is for registered guests only, but apparently not). Also paying $1.50 for use of the in-room safe was a little iffy to me, as I've never paid for an in-room safe. It's only two miles from the beach and close to restaurants and stores. It's an affordable place for somewhere as pricey as Santa Monica. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Few miles from Santa Monica Pier."
A few miles from Santa Monica Pier. Not as close as I thought it was going to be.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not your usual Comfort Inn"
Located in the middle of a city, it had close access (but not walking distance) to Santa Monica Pier, Marina Del Rey and Venice Beach. The hotel section that we stayed in had a unique room configuration allowing for an outdoor lounging area and some buffering from street noise from the front of the building. While not new or modern, the room was clean […] and comfortable. We were carrying a 20 foot kayak on top of a SUV which did not allow us to park in their garage, but they had an overflow open air lot which sufficed quite well.

"Great hotel for a great price!"
Great location, easy to find. Easy access to bus line. Restaurants nearby. CVS close as well...if you forget anything or need anything last minute! Parking was plentiful.

After a 12 hour drive from San Francisco this hotel was a real let down. The service was good, room was ok, but the the road noise was terrible. For the same cost or less we stayed in far better hotels around California.Genuine Expedia guest review
26 blocks from the ocean is very adequate for a quick over night stay. It was noisy at night as the new unit rooms face a courtyard and some folks were up much of the night with no regard to folks sleeping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Home in Santa Monica"
All staff was professional, courteous and helpful. The ONLY criticism would be that seating for the breakfast room should be larger. We had a wonderful stay and problems were resolved quickly (there were only some minor issues with late check-out and the WiFi).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Give a guest a chance to reply"
The place was cool and I would stay there again. Although, I do have one small complaint which is partially my fault since I forgot to put the Do Not Disturb sign on the door handle. The housekeeper simultaneously announced herself and opened the door. I will not go into detail, but she did get an eye full before I yelled for her to get out. I don't […] know who was more startled between me, my GF, or the housekeeper. I hope next time housekeeping enters a room she waits at the very least a full second to give a guest a chance to reply.

"Centrally located hotel w/ great breakfast"
It has a nice clean & warm pool with a wonderful court yards that the rooms face. For being on a busy street, it doesn't have much street noise. The continental breakfast was impressive. The mattress was comfortable & the room had a mini refrigerator, coffee maker along with a safe in the room. We were lucky not to have noisy neighbors & slept well […] .

I felt like I stayed at a motel 6 for the price of a 4 star hotel. They definitely take advantage of the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"comfort & dependable"
This hotel was just what we were looking for. It was clean & straight forward in its execution. Staff was friendly & helpful. Noise was not a factor our room was back off the main road. I would definitly stay there again. Breakfast was a nice touch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location, safe neighborhood."
What I liked: the lenient cacellation policy even through Expedia purchase (no penalty if cancelled by 6 pm); friendly staff; pleasant, safe neighborhood; very convenient location near beaches, Hollywood and airport; hotel has numerous recycling bins; free parking; rooms with fridge and microwave and HBO; breakfast with fresh donuts, waffles, scrambled […] eggs (I think they were powdered though) and sausage. I was impressed that the staff renewed a discount for us even when I didn't ask. Overall, this is a convenient and reasonably priced base, but not a resort where you would want to spend a lot of time, though the pool did look clean. It was just too cold for swimming during our visit. What was not so great: walls and ceilings are thin and sound travels through. One night the couple next door had tense, loud discussions all night. I couldn't make out the words, but it was loud enought to hear the unpleasant emotional tone. Santa Monica lodging can be expensive, but the neighborhoods generally feel safe. This is probably one of the best deals in a place you can feel comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and great price."
Great stay, friendly staff, great location and value! My father loved the complimentary breakfast. The only thing they could improve would be the back parking lot -- for safety, it could be better lit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful convenience & cleanliness nice facility"
Loved it actually. Overall I liked it a lot and thought it was a great deal. Very simple but clean and accommodating in all meaningful respects. Free wifi. Nice clean and comfortable bed. Only a couple of issues. One was that the heater kept blowing out the circuit breaker so that I didn't always have heat. In LA that is not such an issue but still […] would have been more comfortable not having to call down the office to get it fixed. They were very responsive but this should get fixed. Only other thing is the wet outdoor carpet on the outside of the rooms but that should be expected in light of the outdoor nature of the exterior of the rooms. Ask for a west facing room and you might even be able to see the ocean from the room. Great facility. Clean rooms. Nice amenities for the price. Hard to complain. Location convenient.

"close to all, and can even walking to every place"
It was very peacefulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
An ice machine's motor woke me up by loudly switching on and off during the night. At 3 am, I went to complain at the front desk. The suction suggested by the clerk was to switch rooms In the middle of the night rather than switching off the disturbing ice machine. The next night I was awakened by cigarette smoke in my no smoking room as smoke drifted […] into my room from someone smoking in the courtyard outside my room. This is not a good place to stay if you are sensitive to cigarette smoke, or have difficulty sleeping. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com 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
