We paid for an ocean view room and felt it was money well spent. We did not have an issues with noise (although it was a Sunday, which may be a quiet time). Very conveniently located to the beach and our favorite restaurant, Ye Olde Kings Head.

So overall this is a nice property and the beds are comfortable. Unfortunately there are a couple of things that made our stay horrible and I will try to avoid this hotel in the future. The insulation between rooms is apparently lacking. We had a folks next door to our room that played rap music all night long. And we could also hear them talking. Above us they tromped around like a herd of elephants. Although the hotel is on a busy street we didn't notice excessive street noise, maybe because the other guests were so loud we couldn't hear it. Also, the shower lacks something to be desired it is a rain shower but you actually have to get in it to turn it on, not really good when the water is ice cold to start. All in all, we will look for a better hotel in the same area next time.

The hotel itself is OK. I asked for an ocean view but did not get it nor would they move me as they claimed a sold out weekend. Instead I got the parking lot with a loud air conditioner beneath our balcony and a ton of trash falling around the trash cans in our view. The city around this hotel is the real problem. Across the street at the park around the pier middle of the afternoon I counted over 20 homeless sleeping/passed out/shouting/scrounging thru trash cans/peeing in public.... all within just 20 yards from the front of the hotel. The pier is super crowded and not pretty. The first morning I went down to the street to find coffee and muffins. The amount of trash on the sidewalks right outside the hotel door was astounding. There are no cute little Mom Pop shops to shop in....they're all chain stores. We made a Footlocker purchase and went on our way out of Santa Monica. We won't be back to that city.

thank you for taking the time to leave us this review. We apologize that there were no ocean view rooms available during your stay here with us during a sold out weekend. The ocean view rooms are the first rooms to be reserved and we must honor those reservations. We also do our best to provide a clean and comfortable stay for our guests, we cannot do anything about the city or surrounding area.
