Our Commitment to Cleanliness

At the Santa Monica Motel, we are closely monitoring the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health agencies for the latest developments related to COVID-19 and following the guidance of government and public health officials. We want you to know that the safety of our guests is of the utmost importance. We have adopted a wide range of guidelines and additional housekeeping measures to ensure confidence in our operations. These efforts, in addition to our outdoor parking lots and corridors, make our outdoor facing motel an excellent option for a safe getaway.
