              Position, position, position. Very helpful staff. Comfortable bed.

              Needed water and tea making facilities in room. Ironing board was broken.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Location to the shops and restaurants etc in Santa Monica.

              Reception is small and dinghy. Furnishings need to be revamped as it looks dated.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              friendly staff,comfortable room,view,balcony attached to room

              continental breakfast advertised but not available

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              Location was great.

              The carpet in our room was all torn. the windows were dirty. For 200+ dollars a nite it was a true dissapointment

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The location was opposite the beach with amazing sunsets from the balcony in our room. Close to shops and restaurants (and the pier and beach walks of course). Comfortable beds and helpful Laura behind the front desk.

              Location

              Definitely not a 4-star property, you pay for the location but the rest is not worth the money, poor facilites, poor breakfast...But the shopping street is jsut around the corner and the beach is just across the street

            • Single
              6.2

              It was close to the beach and the Promenade.

              Very noisy and staff were not friendly and did not know information of local restaurants and sites.

            • Group of friends
              5.4

              Not worth the money we pay for the room.No restaurant /cafeteria only a slot machine for cold drinks.Did not expect this when you pay 300 per night

            • Couple
              4.6

              Not much to like. Staff were miserable. Room was basic at best. Located next to very noisy club.

              Too much to list.

            • Couple
              5.4

              Location only

              Room was dark, safe not working, hair dryer not working, didn't seem clean, generally the room was very disappointing I would not recommend the hotel to friends

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              Proxcimity to beach & pier, right across the street. Lots of restaurants, cafes &shops, all within walking distance. Beds very comfortable, great views of the beach & pier from our room. The room & bathroom were both good size. Good security.

              The only thing I didnt like about the room was there was no fan in the bathroom, so it got all steamed up during showers.

            • Couple
              5.0

              Extremely helpful receptionist when we arrived during the evening, equally responsive daytime receptionist when we actually checked in the next day. Location was very convenient. The Manager was very courteous and polite when dealing with issues on the final day of the stay.

              Room quality was poor, especially as it was sold as a deluxe room (later told by hotel staff that there are no deluxe rooms in the hotel). Stains on the curtains and carpet. Embellishment of facilities in the description: "private balcony" actually shares the view into at least 40% of the hotel rooms. "Courtyard" means car park/parking lot. Smell of feces in the corridor that was prevalent for 3 days of the stay, even when staff were notified.

            • Single
              5.4

              The. Man who worked there was helpful

              Old tv with broken remote. The girls who worked there were rude and unhelpful

            • Couple
              7.0

              We really liked the location of the hotel, close to transport, the promenade and the ocean. The rooms were clean and tidy also.

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              conveniently situated

              Said it was steps from beach, but you had to cross a very busy main road. Poor standard of hotel for the price. Free continental breakfast but not worth getting out of bed for. We paid for upgrade for a balcony which so small it was beyond a joke!
