GREAT
the staff had energy, fun and kept the vibe positive throughout the entire experience. You can't beat the location either!

No Parking at Hotel California
The biggest problem was parking. There is nearly none. The front desk person said I could pay $14 to park across the street with no in and out privileges or down the street at another hotel for $38 with full in and out privileges. I investigated and found that I could pay for short term parking across the street or $14 for 24 hours. When I pointed that out to him the next day he said , "That is up to our guests to discover." He said his boss wouldn't allow him to tell guests about the short term parking. It was noisy at night but really it's all about location and the location was great.

Great hotel in EXCELLENT location
We stayed here prior to a cruise the next day. When we arrived at about 2p, our room was ready and waiting for us. Very comfortable room, with a surf board headboard, and movie posters on the wall. The Hotel California was located very clo0se to the Santa Monica Pier, which we enjoyed visiting. There was also a park across the street, which was very lovely and we visited on the day of our departure.

I WANTED TO LIKE IT
I was not optimistic when I booked this hotel. I did, indeed, read all of the reviews left by other guests. But, I was curious as to why so many of the reviews differed. I found out! It's a well kept, quaint hotel with a lot of character and color. The lobby was well staffed by two, courteous gentlemen and there was fresh coffee and tea available. The grounds are beautiful and it is near "everything" including the beach. But...It's a nightmare! I was booked into room 25 on the ground floor and I think a 400 lb sumo wrestler was practicing his art all night in the room directly above me. At least that's what it sounded like. Around 2 a.m., I heard a tapping at my window. It was a drunk! He was looking for his room and wanted MY assistance. The walkways and patios are very busy in the mornings so sleeping in is not on the agenda. I'm disappointed because I liked the room and the staff. I just don't think it's a restful, decent, hotel. Oh, yeah, forget parking your rental car anywhere near the hotel, the local taxi drivers have 'dibs' on the meager parking lot.
