Santa Monica Motel, Santa Monica
Friendly helpful staff, noisy location
Friendly staff was always available and helpful. Room was furnished well and clean. Onsite parking was convenient, although very tight spaces. Had ceiling fan, but no AC. Room got warm with the windows closed because its a very noisy area - traffic, horns, car alarms, sirens, people talking outside throughout the night.
Rose, us2 night trip
Santa Monica Motel, Santa Monica
As others have said, there is NO AC. I got a room at the street, so there was street light and noise all night long the receptionist lady wasn't the friendliest. I bought the room via and pre-paid it, they charged me again on another card as I did not have the original card with me? Never heard of such a policy. Also there was a HUGE dog (Great Dane?) in the office with the cleaning lady, it was friendly, but why animals... They say wifi and parking is free, but they actually add an extra charge for it ($12)
