Poor 2.0
This hotel is an overpriced dive! They misrepresent their site and building. You should exclude them from your website! I cancelled upon arriving on site and the scumbags charged me the day before I even arrived!

Clean and Close
Our first trip to Santa Monica. The room was exactly what we were looking for, clean and close to the pier and beach. Reasonable 24 hour parking very close, however it was not come and go so we had to walk everywhere, therefore we were limited to the pier, the beach, and a park; or else we would lose the paid parking spot. That being said it was close to some restaurants that were kid friendly. There was no coffee pot in the room but coffee was available during office hours in the office. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and courteous. The room was very clean. The queen bed was more comfortable than the king, however that might be based on preference of mattress softness. Overall, given we had no idea about the area and how parking worked, it was a good hotel. Would stay there again but due to it’s location it would be better suited for a couple or a family with older children.
