We love this place...but probably not for everyone
Spent a few days with family in two separate suites. It used to be an apartment complex from the 50/60s, and is now a hotel. Location is awesome. Easy walk to the Promenade, beach and Pier. Lots of places to eat and things to do. They charge for parking and wifi. May be a little run-down by some people's standards, but it's clean and we like it. Staff is always awesome, and always helpful if you need something. Pool is clean and heated. We love this place!

Cal Mar Hotel Suites
The location was terrific! It was so close to everything in Santa Monica. We walked easily to the Pier, 3rd Avenue Promenade, restaurants, etc. The enclosed patio with the pool was great, exotic plants and a warm clean pool. Our room had very dated stained carpet, and the bathroom was also dated, small but clean. The service was great. If we made a request it was handled immediately. No free WiFi. I think they are trying to update one room at a time but the carpeting was off-putting. An older facility with some funk but I would stay there again.

1950s revisited
This hotel had such a cool 1950s vibe to it I felt like I was on a movie set. The court yard where the pool was located was nice. Very close to everything the beach the food the shopping.
