      Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Santa Monica At The Pier

      Great location and service!

      from

      I just got back from a long week-end at the Santa Monica Holiday Inn.

      We had free champagne upon arrival, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a large size room overlooking the ocean (which was a block away). You can't beat the location of the hotel--- it's across the street from the pier, and a few short blocks from the Promenade and Santa Monica Place Mall. The staff was very helpful with getting our sightseeing trips booked, and giving us tips on things to do in the city. I would definitley stay here again!

      Not bad

      from

      stayed at holiday inn at santa monica pier, very nice not as noisey as first thought. Staff great main draw back the swimming pool next to the freeway & with access through the carpark.location brilliant for santa monica sightseeing.

      Good location, Nice Staff, Average hotel

      from

      I just got back from several nights at the Holiday Inn in Santa Monica.

      Most of my comments echo previous posters.

      The good: Friendly, helpful staff. Free champagne on arrival. Great proximity to the pier, the beach, Third Street promenade, and the highway.

      The not-so-good: It is loud on the highway side. While the noise didn't keep me awake, it did interfere with my conference calls. Also, I've really come to rely on in-room high-speed internet access, which is not available at this Holiday Inn. Additionally, they only have one phone line, so you have to pick - dial-in to the Internet or talk on the phone.

      The average: Average room, average restaurant (ate there for two breakfasts).

      Great Service all round

      from

      I thought that the service in this hotel far outweighed any noise coming from the roads around it. As a woman travelling on my own I was made to feel very welcome and felt comofrtable sitting in the bar on my own with their friendly staff. The location of the hotel is also excellent, minutes from the beach, the main shopping area and the freeway make this an excellent choice for both business and holiday travllers in my view. The rooms were large and comfortable. Compared to other Holiday Inns, this was a good experience.

      Pleasant enough

      from

      Not as bad as some other reviewers have said. Sure it is a liitle noisy and the pool is virtually on the freeway but the staff were efficient, the rooms good and the breakfast excellent. And the location is very convenient. The free champagne on arrival was a nice touch.

      The good, the bad & the ugly

      from

      THE SANTA MONICA BEACH HOLIDAY INN ON THE PIER was nice when we got there. When we got to the to the restaurant that was a different story. the waters are all very rude and you can actually hear them complaing about the tourist behind the kitchen doors. the supervisor felt so bad that she credited us for a few meals. I felt so bad hearing how unhappy how they felt on their jobs like I should'nt have a nice vacation myself with my family. how they can't stand waiting on their customers. WHEN THE MANAGER SENT US UP BREAKFAST FOR THEIR MIS TREATMENT, I WAS SCARED TO EAT IT! THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE ON THE STREET ARE ALL HANGING OUT SIDE THE MCDONALDS DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM THE HOTEL. THE PIER IS NICE AND IS RIGHT NEXT TO THE HOTEL. I WOULD NEVER STAY HEAR AGAIN. I WOULD GO UP A WAYS TO MALIBU...;)

      Excellent

      from

      I always stay at the Holiday Inn in Santa Monica. Even though people complain about the nosie level it's still the best location and price wise. The key is to ask for a room on the freeway side of the hotel - less noise. The employees are WONDERFUL!

      Holiday Inn Santa Monica Beach Great

      from

      I have stayed at this hotel three times in the last year always had friendly service, Close to 3rd St Promanade, Santa Monica Place Mall, Montana Ave and the Beach. I will be staying here again on my next visit

      The good, bad and ugly about Santa Monica Holiday Inn

      from

      The Santa Monica Holiday Inn is close toSanta Monica Pier, The Promenade, the malland the extemely loud and busy freeway!To get to the pool you must pass throughthe length of the hotel parking garage. Thepool butts up against the freeway. Incredibly noisy. The hotel staff isvery courteous, helpful and friendly. Iwould not stay again just because ofthe 24 hr racket.

      The noisiest hotel ever!

      from

      The Holiday Inn is located close to the Santa Monica Pier, which is nice, but it is also at a very busy intersection with noisy traffic, including idling buses and trucks which ran until 3 am. We were unable to get any sleep, since our room faced the traffic. Although booked for several nights, we left after the first night. I would never ever stay there again. I travel frequently but have never stayed in a hotel on such a noisy street again--it was like sleeping at a truck stop!

      ... see. I think the show I liked best, can't believe I am saying this - was the "Transformers". It was a 3D show & it's just felt like you were right there. The Water World Show was absolutely amazing with the pyro technics and special effects. This was a big day left home at 8.30 & got back to our hotel at 6.30. The Universal Studio tour was on Good Friday, I didn't realise that when we booked it months ago and we were really surprised ...

      There wasn't too much open so early in Little Rock airport but we managed to find a breakfast roll with egg, not too appetizing but at least it filled the hole in my tummy! This leg from Little Rock to LA has 2 stops, one in Dallas where we had to change planes but as I'd checked in really early online we had A boarding for both legs so managed to get good seats.

But the best bit of all was when we had to put on these 3d glasses they gave us and we drove through the King Kong area. I have never been so scared in my life. It was just so real. All these dinosaurs fighting and sticking their heads inside our carriages, well that's what it felt like anyway. It was just so clever.
