Retirement celebration road trip
This place was amazing. It was so perfectly located and had a wonderfully helpful and friendly staff (night and day). The room was spotless and decorated so nicely... the perfect beach decor. We were so Happy that we found it. Would highly recommend it!
Morris, ca1 night trip with friends
Fair 4.0
Wouldn't stay again until it had a major overhaul.
Pros: Great location. Cons: Our room was not clean by any standard on arrival, room smelled as though it has been perfumed to mask other odours. No heat whatsoever available in any room. Shower featured luke warm water after about 5 minutes of running cold. So many things wrong here it's obvious owner couldn't care less. Could be an amazing little boutique Hotel in the perfect location, currently a dump.

Great location which is what you pay for, if you want to be a stone's throw from the pier at Santa Monica. Suitably kitschy surfing decor, such as surf board headboards and, generally, a 50s look and feel. No breakfast. Make sure you ask for a room that is not street side on Ocean Blvd. unless you are a sound sleeper.

The place was nice, the guy at the front desk was very nice too. But at night I couldn’t sleep because it was very loud. A lot going on at night there. But the hotel was nice

No parking
Everything was good except they said their parking lot was full which only could hold around 10-12 cars but had to walk three blocks away to park and costed $35 And when we woke up the next day there was five extra cars double parked in their lot would’ve been nice to know that before hand
