Ocean Lodge Santa Monica Beach Hotel, Santa Monica
Pretty loud
Location was fantastic to the pier. However it was on the main drag so traffic was super loud. We got a room next to the entrance gate and people would let the door slam so we were awoken constantly. There was black mold on the bathroom. Rooms were clean other then that

Fantastic deal in Santa Monica on the Beach!
Very nice hotel in the middle of Santa Monica - near the pier. Everything was clean and comfortable and the staff was amazing. We had an extra bedroom and walked right out to the beach - no crossing any streets to get there. The staff was so friendly and helpful with everything. All of this without paying ridiculously high prices to stay in the beautiful city of Santa Monica.

We drove from San Diego to see the pier and sightsee and we needed a place to stay! The room was clean, the staff was courteous and it was a pleasant stay! 10/10 would stay again and recommend!

Will not stay here again
No one in office when I wanted to check in. A note said be back at 1:30 but it was after 2:00 and still no there. I asked to leave my bag until shuttle arrived at 6:00 and was told that they would be gone by 5:00 and that service was only a courtesy not policy. Being on foot I had to transport my baggage several blocks away to another haven to stay at for my ride to airport.
