              Hotel is located in a fantastic position and if my review was just about location then I would give it a 10/10. The noise from the hotel is dreadful and make sure you get a room on the road side as even though it's noisy it's no where near as bad as the sound from the generator that goes on all the time on the other side. We had to change rooms.

              The noise was dreadful from the generator to the bin men who seemed to live outside the hotel

            • Family with children
              6.0

              Comfy beds and friendly helpful staff. Great location for shopping and beach in Santa Monica

              Way too noisy, no in room facilities, no room service, bar or restaurant, no water in room, no tea/coffee facilities in room. Old and tired and a bit expensive for what it was

            • Single
              4.6

              Good position for the sea and Santa Monica promenade

              The hotel is very expensive (probebly for its good position) but inside rooms are not so good, I was in the room 330 and looked in the internal space and there was rumors for all the night. Internet connection was ecluded (an hotel so expensive must have internet included!). The breakfast was included but was not so good, only coffe (no milk or chocolate) and cakes, eating seated in small tables...fortunatly I stayed there for only one night.

            • Single
              4.6

              Morning staff were really sweet.

              Night time valet acted as though he had never seen someone try the service- check in staff was unhelpful (didnt explain parking or Internet charges). No hair dryer in room, no hair products in room-if I pay more than $150, I expect shampoo an conditioner at the least! Gross old hotel that needs an update and not worth the money.

            • Couple
              5.0

              Not much apart from the location.

              The rooms stank!! The room and hotel finishings were terrible. Everything was old and damaged.

            • Older travelers
              8.0

              No fridge/ amenities in room eg hairdryers etc cant order glass of milk, coffee etc Our room had noisy exhaust outside so could not open window, but a/c was relatively quiet. Only one small lift, long wait if checking out time to get downstairs. Hotel clean but a little tired, should have free wi fi for guests. Breakfast quite modest, not enough chairs/tables to cater for guests if you go down in peak time, plenty of cheap breakfasts available in Cafes nearby however.

            • Single
              6.4

              No Air Conditioning, window was out on to central mechanical area very hot and much noise,

            • Couple
              3.0

              We were "upgraded" to a suite not at our request. Maybe that's all they had left as we checked in late. The road noise was the least of the issues. Stained carpet, lumpy beds, broken furniture. If I could, I'd recommend this for one of the reality shows that shows up and shuts down roach motels like this.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The location was wonderful and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              Its position, and vallet parking.

              The hotel room was relativley small, we did metion it was our honeymoon and asked if we could have the larger/slightly more expensive room of the two rooms we booked, however the receptionist seemed to have her own agenda, and we ended up in the smaller room. Our friends room was definately more vaue for money than ours

            • Family with children
              8.8

              The people we had interactions with from the valet parking to the front desk was extremely friendly.

              The breakfast had a lot to be desired.

            • Family with children
              5.4

              Not much. Outside appeal and lobby were misleading. Once upstairs carpeting , artwork, lighting , decor and poor drainage in tub were off putting. Valet parking costs extra or park in garage a block away

            • Couple
              4.6

              Staff at the checkin desk were not very friendly or welcoming

            • Older travelers
              4.2

              Being close to beachside, entertainment and shopping.

              Poor facilities, basic room, view of air-conditioning unit as our room view, terrible service, bad attitude, unfriendly, poor value for money, cheap and nasty breakfast. Laundry no service on Saturday despite hat the instructions say, hair dryer blew up and no sympathy and slow motion reaction from hotel staff.

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              The location of the hotel was conducive to the area that we had time to visit.

              Lack of signage to indicate checkin parking and valet services. The exterior hvac noise levels in the room was excesive - probably around 60dbspl, or near normal conversation levels. For the price, the view from the room was less than optimal. Continental breakfast consisted of biscuits from (costco?). Definetly an older facility - the charm of over used surfaces was evident. Considering the amenities in addition to location and access, I would expect cost to be around or 1/3 to 1/2 less than I paid.
