                      Located in residential area, yet very close to city business, shopping and the beach. Parking indoors is included. Great continental breakfast.

                      7.4

                      Breakfast selection was great - coffee fabulous

                      toilets were a little loud... carpet's a touch worn...

                      Location Free wifi Quiet Clean Staff helpful

                      Needed fridge Not enough seating breakfast - needed more variety New carpet in rooms needed

                    • Older travelers
                      10.0

                      Good value, good location.

                      Walls not adequately soundproofed. Noise from elevator and from neighbors.

                    • Couple
                      6.6

                      The hotel is very nice. We really appreciate the free shuttle bus to Santa Monica. Room is big, clean, silent. Staff is helpful and nice.

                      The location is good if you need to stay in Santa Monica, but if you want to visit Los Angeles, it is better to book an hotel where you want to visit, as the distance are very long (it took 1 hour and half to go to Universal Studios for example).

                    • Single
                      10.0

                      Wonderful staff. Great value. Close to shopping and the beach. Romantic--would definitely go back for a couples trip...

                      Loved it all!!!

                    • Couple
                      7.4

                      Very nice staff, large rooms, we were lucky to have a litlle patio

                      No coffee machine in room but not big deal

                      The staff was kind and knowledgable and room was very clean and spacious.

                      I wish they had a pool.

                      Garden with small water feature area was very nice and peaceful, room adequate, although I would not describe it as a 'deluxe' king which was what I paid for. Breakfast was excellent but served in a room not exactly suited for this use. Seating in public area was limited during breakfast time. Car to take you to beach is a nice touch. There are good bars and restaurants around the locale of the hotel, all within walking distance.

                      Nice ambience, however hotel is somewhat tired. The decor is dark wood and showing signs of age. Staff were helpful when asked for assistance, however did not go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I would say they were merely perfunctory in carrying out their duties. I expect something better than 'ordinary' when staying in a hotel that purports to be a 'boutique' hotel.

                      I liked the decor, the peacefulness of the location, the cleanliness and the comfort. I would recommend to others.
