Nice hotel, have stayed there before. Basic, bed, 2 night tables and a dresser. Clean, reminds me of European hotels.

Very Good8.0
Not bad, but not great!
The hotel room was really small and the large king bed was comfortable, but the first night I got up and hit my knee on the corner of the bed because the wood stuck out that far and the room was so tight. I still have a bruise and cut on my knee. The floors creaked pretty bad so you could hear a lot going on in the hotel. We didn't hear any talking, but we had read the reviews and knew to ask for an inner room not facing the street and we were up on the 3rd floor. Of course our view at that point was the boiler system. The hotel could use some updating, but it was clean. The coffee was absolutely terrible, but there are breakfast places next door. You can walk to a lot of places from that hotel, but I did not like the busy streets and crowded area of Santa Monica. There were a ton of bums everywhere. There was a $25/day valet parking fee that we did not know about prior to checking in, but the valet service was very polite and quick. Overall the stay was fine, not bad, but not great.

Great Santa Monica Hotel!
Great location, around the corner from Third Street Promenade and just a 5 minute walk to Santa Monica Pier. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the hotel was very clean, as well. Great bang for your buck! Would highly recommend!
