Positive Reviews

Ideal location

Santa Monica is the place to go for a bit of beach fun, and this motel is just a very short drive from the sands of Venice and Santa Monica Beaches. It’s right on the main road so getting to and from everywhere is convenient enough.

Quaint and full of character

The building is brightly decorated, and guests feel that it really does stand out from the crowd. Sure, it’s not a luxury motel, but it does have its own individuality that makes it a memorable place to stay.

Great price for the area

This motel is not far from the best areas of Santa Monica and considering how close it is to the beaches the rates they charge are very reasonable. If you’re on a budget but still want to be near all the action, then this is the place for you.

Negative Reviews

Strange smells

There is an odd odour around this motel that guests find rather unpleasant. It smells like the place hasn’t been cleaned properly, and indeed guests have found that the rooms were a bit dirty. Very basic housekeeping.

Basic in the extreme

You don’t get much at this motel where there’s no hairdryer, no toiletries, and no tea/coffee in the room. All you get is a bed, bathroom, and a TV. And even then, the TV doesn’t always work but apparently they are planning to upgrade to cable TV.

In real need of a refurb

This motel has seen better days, and the guests that have stayed here are less than impressed with the condition of everything on the property. From the beds to the bathrooms and even the public areas, everything should be ripped out and refitted.
