Partner Reviews: Pacific Sands Motel
The Pacific Sands Motel's location was excellent, across from the beach and pier, and one block from the Third Street Promenade and shopping mall. The rooms were clean and nice, despite other reviews I have read. And its the cheapest place to stay on the beach in this area. Great value for the price. I would definitely stay again.
My girlfriend and I were visiting some friends who live in Santa Monica when we decided to just get a hotel instead of driving home so late. For some reason all the hotels were booked on Ocean. So we drove down Ocean and saw this decent looking motel. We pulled in and got a room. It was $100 which was pretty high for this place but we took it anyway. The room we were given was dirty and smelled horrible. We asked for another room and was given one. This one was a little better but the toilet was broken and had no towels in the room. Anyway, we just went to bed and tried to forget about it. But we were woken up at about 5am when all the seagulls seem to flock outside this hotel and raid the dumpsters. Yeah, seagulls fighting at 5am for trash isn't to fun. We checked out at 6am. We paid $100 for a room for about 4 hours. Take my advice and just stay on the beach for free like the bums do. I wish we would have.
