Hotel California

The atmosphere at Hotel California is exactly what people come to LA hoping for. They have surf boards in front and it's only a few yards away from the beach.

A hip Los Angeles beach hotel that captures the casual, laid back California lifestyle. – The Scene
For travelers seeking a more funky, laid back 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 guestrooms with original ceiling murals, mini-refrigerators, leather sofas, satellite TV and a cozy, homey feel.

The Details
Suites offer sitting rooms, kitchenettes, private Jacuzzis and polished hardwood floors. Just minutes from the beach, pier and beach path along a private gated walk street, what the hotel 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 pull-up bars on the beach.

Lies, Lies, Lies – If you look at the website for the Hotel California it will tell you it is "beach front". There is a public parking lot between the hotel and the beach. Unfortunately, this public parking lot will not get you a space overnight though. If you cant find a space in front of the hotel (which is usually never available) then you are stuck parking somewhere else for another $10!! True, the rooms are redone and do look nice, however there is no air conditioning (only a fan) and VERY SMALL showers with no water pressure. The lowest price for this hotel was $168!! You can definitely get a better price if you stick with a Motel 6 if all you are looking for is a place to sleep. Learn from my mistake, don't check into the Hotel California.
