      This place should be condemned! There were roaches. The room was stained and falling apart. No A/C. Three locks on the door, only one worked, and it was obviously broken into in the past. The furniture was horrid. The beds were disgusting. The room smelled of feces. We were afraid to go to sleep, and we left at 7am! DO NOT stay here.

      It was the dirtiest place I've ever stopped ,one night was enough so we moved 2 the seaview motel which was very very good and was cheeper!! Ps we even saw a drug deal taking place in the car park and the staff didn't even care , my advice would look elsewhere .

      it´s pretty near the beach. Wifi free at the room.

      Bad furnitures. No safe box, No closet for clothes, small windows.

      Nothing, don't go there this place is just a creepy and very dirty place, not worth the money cause it's not even that cheap

      Don't go there, rooms are not clean at all, I found used condom in the bathroom, the shower was sticky and not clean either, the place is creepy, poor is not enough to describe the staff, they wouldn't even give me a reduction for finding discusting used condom in my room and almost didn't apologize. So my advice is do not stay there !!! this kind of places should not even figure on Booked.net I think

      The location was very nice . The motel located in a very convenient place.

      I didn't collect any info from about other room conditions, but, room 12 was very bad. I've never stayed in such worst conditions and cleanness room number. The bed blankets were dirty, there were not any chairs to sit and work in laptop.

      I had a decent experience at the motel. It is an older motel so it was as expected but for the price it was not a bad experience. We had everything we needed and the room was clean. I think for some people it is hard to realize the place is clean when it is older. I would stay there again.

      7 blocks to the beach, everything you need close by.

      The rooms can use some updating, in need of new curtains and carpet.

    • Family with children

      Room was quiet and clean.

      Property is rather run down. No extra pillows available, no screens on windows so they could not be left open, no remote for tv, no towel bar in bathroom, no electrical outlet in bathroom and only one in entire room. Two chairs in room; one was broken.

    • Older travelers

      The bed was hard and uncomfortable The decor was ancient, dull, unwelcoming and misery inducing The price was ridiculously high for the poor standard of accommodation ( though I appreciate that that is Santa Monica for you) Our door had only one paltry Yale lock making us feel vulnerable Overall I would say that you are far better off spending a few extra dollars and stopping elsewhere. The only way I would stop here again is if someone had a gun to my head.

      Observe rat in the room at midnight the staff offer to change but all the kids asleep window have no screen that why the rat came in

      Location, price

      Dirty room. One lamp didn't work, the tap was broken, tv didn't work. The staff was not helpful- we wanted to change to a bigger room but even if there were rooms available it was not possible "because we already had made a reservation for the small one".

      The location was good

      The 1st room we checked into was disgusting! It smelt of severe dampness and the bathroom smelt like all the sewage was backing up the pipes ! but the 2nd room we were moved into was much better , basic but ok however through no fault of the motels we were kept awake one night by a mexican drilling the pants off his girlfriend for 5 hours! I wish I could last that long !!!!

    • Older travelers

      It reminded me of places I stayed at as a child. An old-fashoined motel.

      You didn't check in at the lobby, but through a glass window with speaker hole . It made me feel like the area it was in wasn't safe. But the area seemed peaceful at night, not dangerous.

    • Group of friends

      There where cockroaches in our room, it was not possible to change the room.

      Everything about the hotel was good overall, the room was very clean. Staff was ok. Beach is about 12 min within walking distance. But power went out about 10pm and didn't come back till 5am which sucked cuz we had plans of watching tv, charging our electronics and sleeping with ac on since it was a bit hot for us.
