Hotel California Hotel Review

: For travelers seeking a more laidback vibe than Santa Monica's other massive beachfront hotels offer, this small, recently-renovated motel, which is named after the Eagles' hit song, provides 26 guest rooms with original ceiling murals, mini-refrigerators, leather sofas, satellite TV and a cozy, homey feel. Suites offer sitting rooms, kitchenettes, private Jacuzzis and polished hardwood floors. The hotel is set just minutes from the beach, pier and bicycle path along a private gated walkway, and what it lacks in amenities (pool, room service, restaurant, fitness room), it makes up for in location. After all, your pool is the Pacific, superb restaurants are mere steps away and there are plenty of exercise options right on the beach.
