"Great location and like most Holiday Inns" Holiday Inn Santa Monica Beach At The Pier Tip by catchpm

Holiday Inn Santa Monica Beach At The Pier, Santa Monica: 453 reviews and 5 photos


Once you've stayed in one Holiday Inn, you've stayed in them all in my experience. A very middle of the ground hotel. Not up to Radisson or Hilton/Doubletree level, but well above Travelodge type of hotel.

The Santa Monica one was no different. What it did offer however was a great location within Santa Monica, which is a great place in itself. Easy access to Beverly Hills and Hollywood, and pretty close to the airport (LAX). Freeways close by, so you could get anywhere easily (obviously need a car).

Rooms were adequate with (in my case) 2 double beds and a normal bathroom. View was on to Colorado Ave and wasn't overly noisy (although cars around day and night). Valet parking was a bargain $13 per day.

Would recommend for a nice hotel in a nice location.
