    Very good

    The staff is very friendly. Good location. Clean rooms.

    Lacking normal breakfast and free wi-fi. I had a room with two queen beds, it was very small for such bed arrangement. One queen would be just fine. The services are basic - not a great value for the price.

    Superb

    The location of the hotel to Santa Monica beach was the best part of the hotel.

    The so called "breakfast" was not worth getting up for and was awkwardly located in the hotel lobby

    Fabulous

    I like that Sam, the night desk man, lent us his umbrella when I told him that my son had an audition at USC that morning and we had quite a bit of walking to do. Everybody was very friendly. They even printed out my boarding passes for me.

    The continental breakfast could have been better.

    The locaion

    The hotel itself looks a lot different from the pictures online. It is a lot older than it looks in the pictures.

    Hotel is located in a fantastic position and if my review was just about location then I would give it a 10/10. The noise from the hotel is dreadful and make sure you get a room on the road side as even though it's noisy it's no where near as bad as the sound from the generator that goes on all the time on the other side. We had to change rooms.

    The noise was dreadful from the generator to the bin men who seemed to live outside the hotel
