    Parking and Shower is not good.

    Pros: Location to the beach is perfect!! Very walkable area. Close to a great coffee shop and the pier. The sleeping area of the room was really cute and beach themed!! Very friendly and helpful staff. Cons: The parking! The lot only has space for 12 cars or so. If you can’t find a spot in the lot, you’ll have to find street parking or park up the road in a parking garage. If you have an Uber, then this is no big deal. But if you have your own vehicle and plan on using it to sight see, you may not have a parking space to come back to. The bathroom is nothing like what is on line. Small! The shower is old and the shower head is low. I am 5’, and I needed to squat down to wash my hair. The walls are super thin and since you are on the main road, you can hear the traffic all night. If there is someway they can fix the parking and the shower situation, I would stay here again. The location is perfect!! But until they do, I will look elsewhere.

    Would not stay here again

    Our room had a very strong odor of weed when we checked in. Overpowering. Bathroom was very small and in bad shape. It looked like mold was on the shower ceiling. Definitely would not stay here again. Staff was friendly though and it was a very close distance to the pier. maybe 5-10 minute walk at the most.

    Great if your a walk up customer

    Hotel was nice. But the parking is a joke… there is none. You have to park two blocks away towards the free way and walk by a bunch of homeless… very scary at night going to your car…

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Parking was a little tricky but expected since it is located on beach. 2 blocks from pier and amusement park. Pack some walking shoes as it's easier to walk then try to find somewhere to park. Expect to see a lot of trash scattered everywhere and homeless people. Not at hotel. It was very well kept but around town. Typical for any big city in any state these days I guess. Bet it was beautiful back in the day.

    Small charming room. Walking distance to the beach and pier. Off site parking, also walking distance. Lots of restaurants nearby to eat.

    Bare bones motel.

    At check in time, at 4 pm instead of calling me to know if I was coming in they call me to tell thet they tried to charge me and my card didn't work. Then the room didn't even had a bottle of water or a cup to drink rinse our teeth. No phone to call... of all the places we've been this vacation Sea Blue was the most expensive and the on with less service...No coffee, no breakfast. Also photos show as a private access to the beach which really doesn't exist.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Loved the location of this Santa Monica hotel. Not all amenities that we are used to (no coffee maker in room, no microwave, no breakfast), but I think this is pretty normal for the area. Parking is onsite for $36/night and beds are pretty comfortable. Allows pets.

    Over priced fir what you get

    This place is cute and well decorated but Wayover priced and too small no coffee or waters in the room and I asked for a ground level due to my age and I got top floor can’t see or hear the ocean on the air conditioners running windows don’t open all the way very loud people next-door disruptive.
