Guest Comments

““Location, Location, Location”
The location of this hotel, in Santa Monica, near shopping restaurants and the beach make it the perfect place to stay if you are visiting or doing business in the area. Newly updated rooms are clean and nice. Refrigerators are a nice extra. Free parking and WiFi make this place extra special. Most hotels in SM charge for parking and WiFi. There is also an IHop right next door. You can catch the bus going down to the beach and 3rd Street Promenade, a bustling shopping and eating area with no traffic on the streets.“

““Pleasant & Off the Beaten Path”
While the hotel was 20 blocks from the ocean, it offered a more relaxing atmosphere away from the crowds. The walk to the beach and 3rd Street Promenade was doable and a good way to get exercise for the day. The hotel is on a bus line for those that do not want to walk and of course there were taxis available. The hotel rooms were airy and clean. I particularly liked the imitation wood floor and the shutters on the windows. This gave the room a more coastal feeling.“

“Compliment Employees
There are three things that happened that were extraordinary. On the first day I drank two cups of decaf coffee. The next day, without asking, the housekeeper left me two extra decaf coffee pods. Second, I have a cold. At night I used a tissue and left it on the side of the bed. The next day, the housekeeper left an extra box of tissue on the bedside table. Rather than leaving me one little bottle of shampoo, they left me two. I travel for a living. These small acts are truly extraordinary. Please recognize and reward them on my behalf.“

““Best Hotel Bed!”
This is a nice centrally located hotel. There is free parking available below the hotel.
The staff is great!
The rooms are simple and clean, with both a mini fridge and a safe. The bathroom is pretty big. The best thing about this hotel is the bed! I have slept on countless hotel/motel beds; this bed is by far one of the best! This bed rivals the bed in the luxury suit in Castle Mandawa, Rajasthan, India (best hotel bed ever!) The bed in the Best Western Plus Gateway Hotel Santa Monica raises this hotel from a 4 to a 5.
I recommend this hotel - sweet dreams.“

““Hotel Review”
Excellent proximity to UCLA Santa Monica medical hospitals and doctors. Clean rooms and very nice staff. No additional fees for parking. Only 30 minutes away from UCLA and their main campus and medical facilities in Westwood, CA“
