    5 minute walk to to the beach path! Amazing!
    Excellent service,staff was so professional,room was so cozy and clean. You come out the hotel turn left and 5 minutes later you're right into the beach path. Just amazing. Unfortunately I was not told about the $35.00 parking fee until I got there. Wasnt happy about it but didn't want it to ruin my stay. I'll stay there again.

    If you dont mind a 70s motiff it is a pretty good hotel rooms are huge (old apartments) one comment they dont mention of you want to park a car its another 34 bucks on top of the room charge so beware!

    Great location and very family-friendly
    We had a wonderful time at Cal Mar. Honestly, it was better than we expected. The kids loved the pool. The room is an apartment really, with full kitchen and dining table so it was like home away from home. The style is a little dated, but we liked it, it was clean, the location is super safe and family-friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

    Lovely, if antique, southern California villa type hotel with beautiful central heated pool. It's a boutique with only about 30 rooms, all suites. A bedroom door so mom an dad can have some alone time from the kids. usual creaky sofa bed in the living room. We saved a lot of money by doing breakfast in and a full kitchen with oven to reheat leftovers, no heavy cooking for mom this week. A few blocks from the beach and most of the bus routes. It's not on top of the Santa Monica Pier, but the walk is very doable in the sublime weather, 70-80's. Would recommend the :"Flower child" restaurant for avocado toast, it's 4 dollars less then other area options and very tasty.
