Lovely older hotel that has been updated. A little worn around the edges, but mostly charming.

Great place!
Office staff was helpful and friendly. Location was great! It was a little difficult getting into because you cannot make a left turn into the parking lot or road next to the hotel. The room was small, but bright and airy. You can tell it is an old hotel as many areas in the room just looked painted over instead of fixed. The tub was definitely old with some backsplash tiles missing. The shower pressure was very weak. All of this can be overlooked because it was 2 minutes from the beach. The hotel and surrounding houses had their own walkway down to a small street that you’d cross and then you are right on the beach next to Santa Monica Pier! I visited with just my daughter and I. We felt safe and comfortable. We had a great weekend!
