" Excellent management and great staff " My father stayed here for a over a week due to my mother being hospitalised whilst on or travels from Australia. The manager and all of their staff were very sympathetic to him and made the best out of a bad situation. They went above and beyond to help him out in any way possible. I can not recommend this place enough. The place is so clean and family friendly. Myself and my partner also stayed here a few nights and we were both treated above and beyond. Will for sure come back to this motel and recommend to all our Australian friends. Thank you again for everything you did for my father and my family. Great job guys!!
"Nice, friendly motel near all amenities and walking distance to beach.” We enjoyed this motel which was on a busy boulevard but it was quiet, close to a supermarket, chemist, restaurants and bus stop. We could walk to downtown Santa Monica and the beach. There was a cycle path and cycles for rent if you want to bike to Venice beach. Was convenient for us without the price of staying right on Santa Monica. The bathroom was clean and roomy, a coffee machine in the room and at reception, a fridge and a very comfortable bed.
“Amazing” Great location. Neat and tidy motel. Miss Chery (she works at the reception of this Motel) was really helpful and nice. She made my stay amazing. The room are big and with new furniture. The location is great, close to the beach, many restaurants(jappanese, musician, etc.) and a good irish pub.
Had a great time at this little gem. The place is cute and the rooms very clean and airy. It was nice and breezy no need for AC. The location is perfect, and the staff extremely friendly.
The location is great with Santa Monica Pier and Downtown Santa Monica within easy walking distance. Good price, free parking and free wifi. Good sized rooms and comfortable beds. We will book this motel again if we ever go back to the LA area.
It was walking distance to the Pier and its fun at the Pier. The motel was roomy, clean and comfortable. It was also quiet too. I asked for a room farthest from the street and they gave me just what I wanted. The staff was polite and warm. I really enjoyed my stay
