Location Location Location Feb 3 2019 Upon checkin we were greeted by pleasant staff answered all our questions and made us welcome. The hotel room was spotless and comfortable and quiet. The best part we felt was the location. You care close to ships and restaurants in Santa Monica and a block from the pier. We rented bikes from across the street once we figured out how to set up the app to rent them. We cycled on a very windy and wet day to Venice Beach which was not far but would have been more enjoyable if it was a calm day. We also went to an awesome Mexican restaurant turn left out of hotel Casa Martin it was reasonable and food was awesome. We will definitely stay here again and recommend to family and friends.
