    Paper thin walls, noises through most of the night.

    Superb

    The closeness of Ihop and Bistro up the road was recommended by staff and proved to be beautiful food and a great evening.....shuttle service dropping off at Nordstroms....very very clean room and obliging lovely housekeeping ladies.

    A choice of pillows would be appreciated ......they seem to be all one thickness and we like pillows a little more softer.

    This hotel was very clean, comfortable, accommodating and convenient for vacationing in Santa Monica and the surrounding area. We would stay there again when we are in the area. It is a nice plan to have an I-Hop connected for a good breakfast.

    Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable room about 1.5 mile from pier. Safe neighborhood with a handful of dining options nearby. Best dining options are by vehicle. Offers hourly shuttle to Promenade with drop off/pick up at 4th and Colorado on the hour until 10pm. Otherwise parking at hotel and downtown is a breeze. Downtown pubic parking all day cost me $6.

    Superb

    Location based on visiting family in West L.A. and parking.Had handicapped access room which was very roomy and good for a longer stay of five nights.,

    Difficult to get connected to their wireless system for husband's computer.

    Superb

    We chose this hotel because it was the best value for a Santa Monica hotel, we had free parking, free child place and the hotel room was clean with a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities.

    It is a long walk to the beach (about half an hour) but there is a free bus service (at certain times) and the regular bus is only a dollar each trip.

    Exceptional

    I enjoyed my stay in the best western the staff were very good in all requests, the bed is probably the most comfortable bed I have ever stayed in really was amazing. The free wifi and parking was such a main reason why we stayed there considering the other hotels charging the money for those facilities but the best western has the right idea. Having the ihop next door with discount for residents is also very handy indeed

    There is only one bad thing about my stay was the walls, the walls are thin so if someone has there aircon or bathroom light on you can hear it, there was times where me and my wife couldn't sleep due to this buzzing noise. I'm not sure what the hotel can do to stop this but it won't really stop me from staying there again the positives do outweigh the negatives

    The room was spotless, very clean with really comfortable beds. Fresh paint and a good sized bathroom perfect for the two of us. We also had friends visit us one night and there was plenty of room for the 8 of us to hang out.

    The only downfall was the paper thin walls! U can hear the person next doors conversations and them walking around. If u have friends in your room to have a chat n laugh u get people complaining so I don't recommend you associate in your room!

    Very nice and helpful staff. Very clean rooms and just a great place to stay.

    Really the only thing I would say is that it would have been helpful to have free breakfast but having ihop there made it very easy.
