    The place was FULL of drunks and druggies screaming and fighting both nights..there was a van that came every morning to take temps and interview all these people that obviously live there so it must be some DES place that rents for homeless people..whatever it is it was absolutely HORRIBLE..$320 for 2 nights at the worst place ive EVER stayed..the check in guy was a nice guy, other than that id stay as far away as possible..some dude beat his girl the 1st night then 2nd night the guy 2 doors down was drunk and constantly cocking a gun, then got in a big fight with his girl and we woke up to bloody towles in front of their door odk what happened but this place shouldnt even be in business as a motel. No phone or AC in room and tv didnt even work. We were worried the whole time wed be robbed or something and the guy coking the gun all night didnt help.....I NEED MY MONEY BACK!!!

    No A/C. I wish that was advertised. We had a fan in the room. I was like well we can open the windows. Well it was 11pm and we had to shut them bc i couldn't sleep with just a screen. Well i went to shut them. And the one window wouldnt lock. It was late. So my friend and i took turns staying awakee to watch the door. It seemed like it was in a safe place but still. We both have anxiety. I dont own a gun. But after this i will go take a conceal to carry class and have protection with me so i wont ever run into this issue again.

    Exactly what we expected. Great stay! If you are looking for 4-star hotel then you won’t be happy but if you are wanting a good place to stay with A/C then this will work. Just open the windows and let the Santa Monica breeze keep you cool.
