Gateway Hotel Santa Monica
Ranked #16 of 36 Hotels in Santa Monica
Reviewed 27 January 2015

This is a great option in Santa Monica. Though it is a little far from Ocean Avenue, you can take the free hotel shuttle service. Unfortunately the hotel shuttle service was not available during our stay (after Christmas), and it only became available again after New Year's Eve. You can take the car and park at many public parking options for a single dollar close to 4th St though. The free underground parking was a nice perk, and the IHOP downstairs was a great breakfast option. Staff was super friendly. Room was spacious and clean. Overall, great option. Definitely recommend.

Stayed 3 nights. Nicely updated room. IHOP attached to the hotel. Easy, free parking underground. Very close to Santa Monica attractions and Malibu. Very comfy bed, large TV with HBO and great picture. Would definitely stay here again.

The room was like a room in a mental Hospital you would see on TV, There are no carpets and it was noisy and cold! I would never recommend this hotel again as their remodel was a deconstruction and should have been $29.99 not $199.99.

Spent five nights here on vacation with my daughter.
Easy to find. Not opulently appointed but very familiar and comfortable everywhere. Large rooms, two impossibly comfortable beds, perfect maid service daily. All staff smilng and efficient.
IHOP is an amazing on-site restaurant. Walking distance to ocean and, well, everywhere.

Close to a great many small local restaurants and other attractions. Free Parking.

If you want to stay in west LA, stay here. Great value, and very comfortable.

Room Tip: They're all great as I could tell.
