This motel is nice and clean and about 4.6 kms from Santa Monica pier. It was rather busy when we stayed so the breakfast queue was packed. It’s ok value for money, I guess when you are in Los Angeles / Santa Monica the prices do reflect the location. It was the most expensive place we stayed on our Route 66 trip, as above I accept this as being where it is.
There’s the usual fast food joints close by and a great Irish pub a couple of streets away. I would stay here again, you just have to accept that the cost that goes with it.
