Amazing location. As others have said, the walls are very thin, and you can definitely hear those above and beside you.

Fair 4.0
It wasn't the worst place you could stay.
First, and most significantly, the staff was wonderful! Those we met were very friendly, accommodating, and helpful. The amenities and general "comfort" of this motel were not, AT ALL, what we had expected. The parking was ridiculous. Vehicles were stacked and crammed into an incredibly small area. So, it was a good thing we didn't need our vehicle for the evening - there would have been no way to get it out. If you are a light sleeper, bring some "white noise." Otherwise, with all the street noise - all night long, you won't be able to sleep at all. Although it might sound petty... I actually wanted to sit in a "chair" while working on my computer. Nope... no chair in the room at all. End of this story... it's a good thing we had no plans to "hang out" at the motel, or in our room. As long as all you are looking for is a place to store your stuff while you are out, and a place to pass out (if you can) once your evening is through - and you don't need your car to get anywhere... then, this place should be just fine!

It was a excellent place to stay , the only thing on cleanliness was a oversight on leftovers in the fridge. The staff was amazing! The location was right where we wanted to be for walking distance. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to family and friends!

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!
