Lonely Planet
Surf-inspired decor, hardwood floors, luxury mattresses, super friendly staff and free email ensure a great stay, except in cheaper rooms that face the busy street.
Frommer's
On enviable real estate along Ocean Avenue... this welcoming hacienda-style beachfront motel embodies the surfer/sun-worshiper ambience you'd expect from Santa Monica lodging.
Be sure to check the website for specials.
Time Out
This jaunty motel offers its guests a different type of Californian experience. Surfboards hanging from the façade underline the location; surfers even get a 10% discount if they turn up with board.
