"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

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
"Good value and a great location"
The Santa Monica area has amazing nightlife and this was a good value for the location.Genuine Expedia guest review
very comfortable beds. Refrigerator nice feature. nice location in Santa Monica.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great standard hotel. Excellent location for walking the city! I'll go there again!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Very satisfied with all aspects of our stay there. Very comfortable bed. Adjacent IHOP with discount was a plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent place to stay if you are on a budget."
Its about a mile away from the beach, but its a decent location. A free underground parking lot which really helps. You are on Santa Monica Blvd so you get a lot of street noise. Our room was on the Blvd side and we had to keep the windows closed at night and the air conditioner sounded like a jet engine.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was exactly as described, 20 blocks from the beach. Rooms were clean, not noisy. The only thing we misread was that the hotel shuttle is only Monday through Friday. We had to spend more money to park by the Third St. Promenade and the beach. It is very dark at night and it was a little scary walking 4 blocks to our car on a Saturday night. […] I guess there was a bus, but we did not see it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet rooms on interior"
We stayed here just one night of our stay in Los Angeles in order to be fairly close to the airport and our friends in Santa Monica. We found it to be comfortable and adequate. The best features for me were the free parking and the fact that you can get a quiet room away from street noise that faces the interior driveway. There's no view in that case, […] but my preference is for solitude. Went to dinner at Hosteria del Piccolo on Broadway and 6th -- excellent! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to beach and Main Street."
Pleasant staff throughout our stay. We enjoyed walking to the beach each day and the shops along the esplanade. It was great having free parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very convenient location and good service."
I was staying with my mom for trip. The location was very convenient to go to beach or nice restaurants and free shuttle bus was really helpful. Representatives were relatively friendly. Free wifi and even free printing service was really good to me. I printed a map and vouchers for free. If I need to go LA, I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with value for money in Santa Monica"
Value for money hotel. Great location, free parking, good price, good room conditions.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK Place-Reasonable Price for Santa Monica"
I've stayed there before as it's an OK place at a fair price. I didn't need anything fancy as I was just on a family trip and spent very little time in the room. The room was good and not terribly noisy, but I have hearing loss so I'm sure I would have heard a little more from the traffic on Santa Monica Blvd. Free parking is a major plus, but the parking […] spots are tight and avoiding poles keeps you alert. The front desk and cleaning staff are quite accomodating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel to know LA"
Location is very good, Santa Monica is a very nice place. There is an IHOP next door, so you can have breakfast every day. Free amenities: Parking, Internet, Printing.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very average. OK if you just want a place to stay in Santa Monica. Limited hotel services. No breakfast. IHOP next store. Rugs in hallways need to be replaced. Dirty and worn. Bad first impression.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall Good Place to Stay"
Clean, quiet, secure. Overall a nice place to stay. The shuttle to and from the beach, which is 1.7 miles away, is convenient. The only issue is that it stops running at 7pm and ther is no weekend service.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a very pleasant experience. Good enough location. Friendly staff. Free parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"NICE PLACE TO COME BACK"
VERY CLEAN, PERFECT LOCATION, VERY CONFORTABLE ROOMS,Genuine Expedia guest review
"What You'd Expect"
Easy to get to area businesses (Yahoo, Red Bull, Crispin Porter, etc) if you're in for a meeting. Still close to Santa Monica entertainment and the beach. Gym is tiny. Parking is free and secure underground. IHOP next door makes breakfast easy. Lacks on overall amenities and extras, but what you'd expect for BW and the price. Staff at desk was plea […] sant.

"Good location BUT bring a noise cancelling headset"
The hotel location is a few blocks off Santa Monica beach and Promenade shopping center. Overall the room is nice, clean and comfortable BUT here's the ugly part when you get to sleep at night you'll hear upstairs floor squeeks when someone walks in their room. If they use their shower and sinks it even get worse it's like it is amplified. Our room […] was next to the elevator you can hear the conversation loud and clear it's like the room door is open.

"Very Comfortable Stay."
Great value, good location, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. I would definately recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The staff makes this hotel better than it is"
The first night the hotel was booked and we had a room on the road side with a lot of road noise. The staff was super helpful but unable to move us to another room. The next morning, they were able to move us to a room on the interior corridor, which was much better. The rooms were clean and the decor was pleasing for this type of hotel. The staff made […] this hotel experience a good one. Everyone was cordial, friendly and they went out of their way to make our stay a good one. The hotel is located near Santa Monica and has a free bus to that location. There is also an IHOP restaurant right next to the hotel. The only downside was the road noise.

"Good value, convenient location, courteous staff"
This is the second or third time I've stayed at this Best Western, which is conveniently located (I usually spend my time between UCLA and the beach), modestly priced, with exceptionally courteous and helpful staff. If you are looking for high-end amenities or luxury you should go elsewhere, but for what it is this hotel is terrific.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok but pricey"
The room I stayed in was ok But I feel like I payed too much for the room. The price didn't meet my expectationsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
