Cozy Queen was a little too warm and stuffy the first night, but the staff took care of it in the morning when we notified them. Breakfast is awesome, staff is super friendly and helpful, and location couldn't be better....one block from the beach. We will definitely stay there again if in the area. 10 minutes from Getty Villa (go there!)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming and Cozy"
We stayed at the Channel Road Inn for one week and were pleased with our choice. The inn is charming, cozy, and comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding and there was something different served daily. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The many balconies allowed for reading, leisure, and enjoying the pleasant weather.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classic and Cozy"
Great small bed and breakfast with real cozy feel. Very compfortable rooms. Close to the beach. You should have a car to get around and into town. There is a lite breakfast of always fresh bake items and fresh fruit. Our room with a view in the rear was a great scene to awake to every day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Breakfast, Bikes, Battlestar Gallactica"
The food was delicious, the staff was very friendly and helpful, the bed was incredibly comfortable, and having a couch in the room was a very nice touch. Plus there was a nice surprise of free bikes (fixed gear)! We had a couple great rides along the beach, just a short ride from the pier and the iconic ferris wheel. The only drawback we had was that […] the room became very warm at night, until we opened the windows. Since it was October, the cool breeze from the ocean took care of the warmth issue and was just wonderful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great surprise"
An amazing boutique hotel in Santa Monica. You would never expect such a wonderful place to stay with the atmosphere of this hotel in this locationGenuine Expedia guest review
A perfectly relaxing getaway!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, but could stand some improvements"
Overall, it was very nice. But there are several things I would like to mention. The carpets throughout the hotel are in ridiculously bad condition and should be replaced. Also, I seriously recommend replacing all the single pane windows with dual pane. The traffic (and there was a lot) noise was VERY loud and could be mitigated (of course not eliminated) […] by changing those windows out. I don't know about the other rooms, but there were several tiles in the tub/shower area that had cracks in them. Grout was put in them, but they should have been replaced - it looked tacky and lacked class. Finally, the faucet for the bathroom sink was so short you could hardly rinse your hands off even. On a better note, Heather and Dominique were wonderful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Relaxing vacation getaway"
The inn and staff were great. The inn was older and a little worn in spots but very warm and pleasing. The staff could not have been better. The location is convenient but there was some construction at the end of the road by the beach which was noisy and dusty on the weekdays.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing experience- GREAT value!"
This B&B was spectacular. The value of the complimentary home made breakfast, bikes, coffee & tea, beach towels and most of all, the most kind and giving personnel made this experience amazing!!! Our room was very spacious with cute old style decor with modern touches. I would most certainly recommend this especially to couples. You will love it! Never […] staying in a four/five star hotel again that you have to pay for anything you touch! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Channel Road Inn is a delight!"
Two blocks from the beach, we enjoyed a relaxing stay -including complementary wine hour, with great snacks and beverages, and a wonderful breakfast. So many little touches made our experience top notch. From a warm welcome and tour and willingness to allow us to park our car in the lot before and after check in/out to the cozy bed and sitting room […] areas --we were so impressed and can't wait to return again soon. Two miles from Santa Monica's pier and promenade, Channel Road Inn offers bikes, maps and advice to help you get around easily. There are many other charming and convenient features to be found at the inn --beach towels, fresh-baked cookies, handwritten notes, etc. They've gone far beyond the basics (clean room, quality toiletries, friendly service) and succeed in pampering their guests in a relaxing, unfussy manner. I'm so happy we found this little gem. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Girlfriend Getaway"
It was fantastic right from th start. I was warmly welcomed,invited to a choice of beverages, taken into a beautiful living room, sunroom and other lovely rooms in the house. it felt like I was visinting a friend in their wonderful home. It just got better and better-our room was gorgeous, comfortable, with a sittin roomand large bathroom. The wine […] time and appetizers was great and the breakfast buffet was scrumptious, all homemade and chocolatechip cookies for a snack at night! My girlfriend and I LOVED this inn and can't wait to go back. The staff arranged a dinner reservation for us,were so friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Charming relaxation spot"
We received exceptional service and experienced relaxing comfort during our stay at the Channel Road Inn. The best perks about this Inn are the free parking and the excellent breakfast and afternoon snacks. The location is convenient, but be aware that the Inn is across the canyon from the main part of Santa Monica. The most direct route to town is […] along the beach path, which is a very short walk from the Inn. Although our room was small, it was the most cost-effective room and it was comfortable, with a jetted tub/shower, queen size bed, and adequate storage. The entrance was private and we only heard other Inn guests if they were directly in the room overhead. The common areas of the Inn are lovely and inviting. Staff is friendly and open to conversations, suggestions, and sharing information. Even if you don't normally stay at B&Bs, give this one a try. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Channel Road Inn, A Four Sisters Inn"
The location was perfect! Just far enough away from downtown to feel calm and peaceful (with clean beaches close by, to boot). The staff members were all very welcoming and helpful. They have bikes you can borrow with very little hassle! The room was nice and clean; I especially enjoyed the 3 different types of pillows they had. The breakfast was better […] than your average continental fare with homemade blueberry coffee cake and a tomato fritatta. I would recommend for anyone visiting the area if they want something slightly off the beaten path of beachfront, high-priced hotels. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This B & B is a great choice. The location is a short walk to the beach. There are a half dozen fine local restaurants also within walking distance. The staff at the inn is very pleasant. They serve a very fine breakfast buffet and a lovely "happy hour"- both are complimentary. The location of the inn is also good for seeing the wide range of other […] attractions in greater LA.

What a charming place. Nice beach just a a 5 minute walk. Close to the promenade. It was really charming and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wish we had stayed more than one night"
Comfy, sweet, and just lovely. We stayed here on Valentine's Day night after driving 6 hours from northern California and everything was perfect except that we couldn't stay longer. We opted to walk to the Santa Monica pier, and even though we missed the official afternoon cocktail hour they still poured us a couple glasses of wine when we got back. […] There's a jacuzzi, you can borrow bikes, and there were freshly baked cookies in our room. It was fantastic. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Channel Road - Charm by the Sea"
Very Welcoming Staff who upgraded us for no extra charge - to a better room simply because they felt it was more of what we were looking for. Charming fire in the lobby for wine and cheese was wonderful and the breakfast then next morning, while perhaps limited in choice, was none the less tasty and well presented. The restaurants nearby were all within […] walking distance and of an excellent standard. Free parking, free soda's all day and a helpful staff makes this a wonderful starting point for any visit to Santa Monica and the Palisades. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Channel Road Inn - fabulous customer service!"
I stayed in the Cozy Queen Guestroom at the Channel Road Inn in early December 2011. I arrived very late at night and it took a few bell rings before anyone answered the door, but the front of the place was so charming, I was almost happy to wait and have the chance to see it. The room is quite small, but comfortable. It is decorated in a very soothing, […] feminine way. I resolved to eat only one of the fresh cookies waiting for me in the room, but the first was so good, I finished all three. In the morning, I headed down to breakfast early and it was delicious. I had yogurt, fresh berries, and a hard boiled egg, since I'd splurged on the cookies, but the main entree looked divine, too. The cherry on the top of my visit was the pleasure of dealing with the innkeeper in the morning. I was concerned about finding parking for a meeting I had later and she offered to give me quarters for a meter. Drawbacks: The parking lot is cramped. If you have a larger vehicle, make sure you aren't the last to arrive. It isn't newly renovated. The room really is small. I wouldn't put more than one person in there unless you really want to be cozy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming Clean Comfort"
The first thing to mention is that the inn has a lovely staff who seem to keep guests' comforts as primary concern and they succeeded with my family to the maximum degree. Great food at breakfast, accomodating to gluten free concerns, nice appetizers accompanying evening wine reception, including raw veggies and hummus and 3 choices of wine while we […] stayed (one sparkling). The interior is well maintained. Typical comfy atmosphere with books, movies to borrow, games, nice bright views. The Inn is just 1 blk off a nice section of beach, easy on/off major driving routes; An abundance of nice restaurants in walking or easy driving distance. We had a wonderful 2-night stay (oh, forgot to mention, gorgeous bedding and wasn't at all bothered by "street noise" some have mentioned.) Would love to return and use the free loaner bikes and explore more of the town. The management should be very proud of their property and care of guests! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We were very satisfied with both the amenities, location and staff. Nothing could be faulted. We will stay there again on our next visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Expensive guest house"
Very disappointing experience. This guest house was presented as a hotel. It was at least 2 miles from the main drag and not made clear to the international visitor. They offered a very limited buffet breakfast (home bakes), and afternoon ourdrinks on the house, but this was not enough to allow for the prices they are charging which relate to main stream […] hotels with amenities to offer. Rooms are clean and quite well equipped in rather poetic fashion, but you can't sleep because of the noise from overhead guests - not their fault but no insulation at all for noise levels. Shocking value. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Last stop before LA"
The hotel staff were very helpful and the room was small but comfortable. As an overnight stop it fitted the requirement.Genuine Expedia guest review
We arrived here for the first leg of our road trip honeymoon. We didn't have to pay for parking either in the car park or out on the road nearby which was good as we soon found out that this is not the case for most other hotels in California. When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly and efficient member of staff. The foyer, the living room […] area and breakfast dining room were beautiful. We couldn't believe how quaint and pretty it all was (you know in a non-pukey over the top way). It was so nice. We walked in to the smell of baking (we had home baked cookies waiting for us in our room) and were made to feel welcome and relaxed immediately. Our room of perfect and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a really decent size too - bath included. In the morning breakfast was delicious (again home baked) and it varied each day. It's a stone's throw from the beach and is in a perfect location for getting into central Santa Monica. We were actually quite sad to move on to our next location and of all the hotels we stayed in, this was definitely our favourite. I would go there again. I didn't know about the Four Sisters Inns so we didn't book any others, but I would definitely do this next time if they are anything like this one. Thanks for a great start to our honeymoon!!!!

"Very Quaint, great staff, small room."
It is in a wonderful location, very quaint inn that has superb service. You wake up in the morning to the smell of coffee and bake goods. In the evening they have wine and snacks for the guests. The common area is very cozy. They have small grounds, however, real estate is at a premium so they have maximized their space. Staff are amazing, our room […] was very small and at the back of the house but private. Parking was included which was great. Overall I would recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach ideal as a stopover"

What an amazing B & B, it is beautiful inside and out, the location is perfect (2 min walk to beach) and the hotel offers complimentary wine and snacks through the afternoon as well as providing beach towels and even bikes to use for the day.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a cozy queen and were initially worried that it would not be big enough but was fine. very comfortable stay and the service was fantastic. A bit too far from the main area as we walk everywhere and at the end of a long busy day, walking back was a bit too far. First impressions were ' my mum would love this' Charming Inn with most guests a bit […] older than us, but we were well looked after with home baked cookies and nice breakfasts.

"Only spent one day and should have stayed a week"
Loved it, first night of our honey moon road trip and wished we had stayed longer. Everything was great, from the free parking to good wifi, right up to the amazing room, free cookies and wine and location. The staff were really helpful and the free bikes that we rode to Venice were great. Loved the whole experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Service with a smile"
A perfect stay, the whole place delivers five star service with a smile and without fuss. The location allows you to cruise down Malibu, walk onto the beach, or drive to most parts of LA. If you want to meet other guests, the late afternoon happy hour allows easy conversation, or, if you simply just want to relax in their secluded garden - it's a floral […] delight.

"Exceptional from start to finish!"
From the moment we arrived our experience was amazing. I had read the great reviews before booking, but this and other reviews cannot do it justice. We were greeted by Danielle, who throughout our entire stay could not do enough for us and the other guests. The cleanliness and comfort beats many five star hotels I have stayed in. If you want personal, […] this is personal in perfection. There are great restraunts within a 2 min walk which cater mostly for locals but warmly welcomed us. The hotel holds their menus so it is easy to make an informed choice. The wine and cheese was a perfect way to relax after a day about seeing the sights. Only one word describes this treasure and that's, perfection! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great B&B, stayed three nights for our stop over in LA! Beds were ultra comfy, just what was needed after the hustle and bustle of mooching round LA all day.

"A unique hotel in a peaceful part of Santa Monica"
Channel Road Inn is a little gem of a hotel. It is situated about 2 miles from Santa Monica pier and about 100 metres from the beach. The hotel is about a hundred years old but the facilities are excellent and the rooms are very comfortable with good en suite bathrooms. Our room had a little veranda with a chaise longue and a chair. Coffee and teas […] were available at all times, there were also freshly baked cookies. Breakfast was varied and delicious and there were drinks and canapes at 5p.m. The staff were all very kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

"Channel Road Santa Monica Gem."
An excellent little inn/B&B tucked away in a mainly residential area of Santa Monica about 3.5 km north of the Santa Monica Pier. It is about 300 metres from the beach and close to several very good restaurants. Crossing the rad can be a bit of a challenge during peak traffic periods. The rooms are nicely appointed and the staff are very friendly and […] helpful and would not accept any payment for two telephone calls I made to San Francisco. Some of the guests return to this inn every year. There are no lifts to the first and second floors. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A little pricey"
This B&B is very well maintained and the staff are very courteous and friendly , the room I stayed in was very clean and maintained but was a little too cramped for the money that was paid, then again this is Santa Monica and nothing comes on the cheap. All in all I would not stay here again. This B&B is located in a very quiet suburban area close to […] restaurants and small convenience stores; it's a good 45 min walk to the Pier and a 15 min drive to Venice beach. it is also off the pacific coast highway and a very busy street, the room I was in was at the back and very quiet but I believe the rooms at the front might get a bit if road noise If your after a quiet retreat away from the attractions this is the place for you, the beach is located on the the other side of an under pass and is about a 3 min walk away.
