"perfectly fine place to sleep and shower"
we were there for a family event. other family members were at much pricier hotels and complained about cleanliness and amenities. our accommodations were fine for the time we spent there. great central location for our various venues.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Newly renovated hotel. Convenient location"
Recently renovated. Everything was new and clean and worked well. We especially liked the convenient location to where we had to go. The iHop restaurant downstairs was a good place for breakfast. Parking in the basement was a real plus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"New and improved!"
I stayed at this location a few years back and was utterly underwhelmed at the time. The interior was worn out and the traffic noise a real problem. No more: the interior of the hotel was recently renovated and the traffic noise problem was addressed through extra glazing. Good job! This hotel has made it back onto my short list of reasonably priced […] hotels in Santa Monica. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really great stay! The hotel was just updated --"
Hotel updated recently.. Looks great! Staff was really helpful Great location - 1.6 miles to the beach!Genuine Expedia guest review
Lobby was under construction and we were sent down hallway to the managers office to check in, not a good first impression. All underground parking so you do not fit with overhead bike rack. Rooms new with tile floorsGenuine Expedia guest review
Room are very nice and very clean. Great location. Onsite,underground parking is nice and easy. Ideal for traveling and cost savings. Beds are very comfortable. Highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location, Good rooms"
We were wondering staying on the pier or staying nearby. We choose staying nearby. We dont regret our decision. This hotel is a great choice if you just want to be near Santa Monica but not IN the pier. It is very accesible from any were. We were often moving to the UCLA area. EXCELLENT!!!. Going to the Promenade !!! The hotel installations are going […] under remodelation, we got a renovated room that was very good!!. IHOP is next door that makes your breakfast easy. We will recommend this hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel very nice, clean, pleasant, quiet. We had to pay for an extra parking space (10$) which was my only complaint. Not a big deal. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for one night"
Stayed here with family one night before football camp. Great location and the hotel got what you need for a good short stay. Try Gilberto's restaurant at Pico Ave. Definetly the best restaurant in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Served its purpose. No bells or whistles."
I just needed a hot shower and a comfortable bed. The room was nicer than expected but the hotel hallways were dank and the carpet was very worn out and dirty. It was not any place I'd want to hang out in. Felt safe there so that was very important.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice & affordable"
It was a nice, close to everything, big rooms... also, IHOP has great breakfastsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel with brilliant serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointing for the price"
The hotel was in a good location, within walking distance to the fun attractions of Santa Monica. However, our room was on the first floor, just a few feet away from the lobby. We were in a non-smoking room, but during the night, smoke from an adjacent room entered our room through the adjoining door. Our clothes smelled like smoke, and the front desk […] attendant was unconcerned when we reported this upon leaving. We did appreciate the free parking and the proximity to the Santa Monica attractions, but the area around the hotel was not great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
very clean hotel, free parking in underground garage, quite rooms that have been recently updated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to All"
Our son just moved to Santa Monica so we wanted a hotel that was close to him and close to bus lines so we could get around while he worked. The Best Western has very nice rooms- surprisingly nice actually- and was very well located. They also have free wi-fi and a computer and printer for guest use.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was small and dark. Window on drive court, heard all talking. Bathroom, really dark, florescent lighting. Plastic classes and paper cups, yuck. As far as condition, they had just started a renovation, so that will be rectified.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stay was good but could have used the shuttle on the weekends!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is fine if you are focused on location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel, good value. cab ride to promenade area"
only stayed overnight but hotel was clean and staff courteous. We wanted to walk to dinner, but turns out the promenade area where all the food is was a cab ride away.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Three generations meet and enjoy their stay!"
friendliness of staff, convenient location with on-site parking; met our special needs requirements; very comfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beds were very comfortable. Shower head the size of a dinner plate - very nice! Clean all around. No restaurants in hotel. But an IHop across the street. Parking is underground, just don't park where employees park (which is not marked clearly) or they'll call you at 11pm to move your car. Not cool! Other than that I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good location for all of the beautiful Santa Monica sights....good location. Hotel great steal for the price...nothing fancy at all but worth it for the location, free parking and free wi fi. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've been staying periodically for past 4 yrs no frills but shabby and rooms quite dark. They have a captive audience for tourists being so close to santamonica beach have free wi fi and parking and close to get to route 10 Average accomm for business travelersGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"always enjoy my stay here"
I have stayed here many times. The room is exceptionally well taken care of. Enjoy the coffee in the morning and all the other amenities. The room was cleaned quickly and efficiently while we had breakfast. Everyone is more than accommodating. Nice shuttle to 3rd street promenade. Only down side.. near hospital...ambulances... need I say more. Obviously, […] if I have returned many times to this hotel I would recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Will definitely go backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Alright for one night, not much to there anyway. Did enjoy dinner at The Lobster!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice area hotel with easy access to beach/pier"
Hotel offers shuttle service to the Santa Monica Pier for free during the week but does stop running at 8:00 pm. We opted to drive to the pier and park so we could walk around, watch the sunset from the pier and not have to worry about what time it was to catch the hotel shuttle back. We knew we would not be ready to go back to the hotel so early. This […] hotel offers free parking which is a plus compared to other hotels that charge for parking on top of room cost.

"Nice, affordable hotel."
A very clean, affordable hotel. While not within easy walking distance to the Pier and the beach, there were frequent buses and shuttles to catch to both, in addition to nice shopping areas.Genuine Expedia guest review
Older hotel, a bit musty feeling but nice overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient. Nice. Clean."
Hotel was nice and clean, and centrally located to just about everything. We spent lots of time at the Santa Monica beach, the Third Street Promenade, and Venice Beach, with excursions to the Hollywood Hills, Universal Studios/Citywalk, Beverly Hills, Malibu, and Culver City. This hotel is nicely located in a place central to all of those locations […] - we didn't have to travel more than 20 minutes to ANY of those sites. Room itself was clean and simple, with a room safe and a refrigerator. No microwave here though, so don't plan on being able to heat anything up. We stayed in a double queen bed room and the mattress' were very creaky, so if you're a light sleeper, they may wake you up if you toss and turn. Used the fitness room, but there's only one exercise bike, one treadmill, one elliptical machine, and an all-in-one weight machine, so if you need any of those and they're occupied, you'll have to wait your turn. Parking was VERY convenient, as its under the hotel, and above all its FREE - good luck finding ANY place in L.A. that can make that claim - there aren't very many. Wifi signal was pretty good all throughout the building, even in the IHOP on the ground floor. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location !"
Good hotel, my only complain was that the pillows were not comfortable! I would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Bathroom was really small. Not within walking distance to anything. Shuttle only runs once an hour.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous location near everything vital"
Very comfortable and enjoyable to visit our grandchildren.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Drab hotel, far from beach, shops & restaurants"
Only hotel we found under $300/night for weekend we wanted, but you get what you pay for. Drab, dated hotel. Our friend's room smelled of urine - covered up with floral spray that wore off. Too far from beaches, shops & restaurants - except IHOP. Neighborhood is office & medical buildings. Staff was pleasant, but we should have paid more and stayed […] at a nicer place near beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
They couldn't accommodate my BMW with a UHaul trailer, and were pretty unhelpful with finding a solution. For the relatively high rate we paid on a weekday, I would expect a nicer room and stay overall. Not bad, but I just hoped for a better value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older hotel, friendly staff, good location"
The hotel's decor is a little dated but well maintained. Was happy that the tub drain actually worked - this is a problem even in 4-5 star hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value and close to attractions"
Was not expecting a lot, so was pleasantly surprised that the room was spacious, stylish, and the beds were big and comfortable. Not a lot in the immediate area, but within walking distance to a major outdoor shopping mall. A bit far from the beach, and the shuttle is only operational Monday through Friday. Overall, a good value.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to all needed locations"
Very nice, staff was accommodating and very pleasant. Hotel parking a definite plus. Was in town for my daughters wedding. Access to interstate and nearby locales where reception was held. IHOP on site is also a plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stay at Best Western whenever possible.We were disappointed that there was not a breakfast included with our room rate.That is one reason we like BW.There was an IHOP in the complex but we only got a discount coupon for lunch or dinner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old but well maintained place"

"The hotel is a bargain for the price and location"
My wife and i decided to stay at this hotel because it was close to the beach restaurants and shopping real nice hotel loved the location and service they have free parking!!!! and an ihop next doorGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for families on a budget."
We stayed for 8 days and have very few complaints. We received a great rate for a room with 2 beds. They let us check in at 11 am. The room was clean upon arrival. Beds are very comfortable. We had a room on the inside perimeter so our view was of rooms directly across from us. Not great if you are worried about your privacy. The bathroom had a few […] tiles that needed to be fixed and chips were coming up. Other than that the room was spotless and cleaned early like we preferred. Coffee and tea were always stocked. No pool but we knew that upon booking. You don't need a pool with Santa Monica Pier so close by. Great location. Free parking. Will stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for all"
The hotel staff was great from check in to getting extra creamer, to check out..The location was where I needed to be and not battle the highway traffic first thing in the morning..Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms looked a bit worn. Walls need repainting/rewallpapering. For the price, I expected a microwave along with the mini fridge. Lacked recycle trash can. Internet in room was spotty at times.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
