This place is a dumpy and I expected more for the price. Only giving two stars because of it’s awesome location by the pier. The windows were so dirty you barely make out the view. When I mentioned it to front desk, they kinda just shrugged it off. Also, as you can see in the photos, it’s a bit grimy. This is the bathroom floor, definitely in need… Read more
This place is a dumpy and I expected more for the price. Only giving two stars because of it’s awesome location by the pier. The windows were so dirty you barely make out the view. When I mentioned it to front desk, they kinda just shrugged it off. Also, as you can see in the photos, it’s a bit grimy. This is the bathroom floor, definitely in need of some TLC. Beds totally need to be thrown out and replaced as they sink in the middle and are not comfortable at all. Read less

This hotel is right across from the pier, although it would seem sketchy, 100% was not. Staff was VERY informative and welcoming and had a nice sense of humor. Rooms and Elevators were clean. Downfall is being next to the freeway but its actually really quiet, their windows and curtains block a GOOD majority of the sound. Parking was very easy,… Read more

Downfall is being next to the freeway but its actually really quiet, their windows and curtains block a GOOD majority of the sound. Parking was very easy, pricey but what isn't in California. Loved that it was right in the center of everything. Good food too! (see Blue Taco about a block down!) Read less

You book a room for $200 which seems fair. Then you end up with a total bill of $400 because of parking and other undisclosed fees. You get to the room and the beds are tiny and very uncomfortable. Definitely not worth the stay

My husband and I took a detour to Santa Monica from our Phx to Sac trip. We stayed at the Wyndham at the Pier. Greeted by very nice parking attendant. After we checked in, he Guided us to the elevator and provided tutorial on how to access our floor with our card key. We were greeted in 4th floor room with no entry light. Not good considering we checked in at night. Come to find out the thermostat didn't work but the control panel on cooler by window worked. Sheets on the bed but no blanket. We slept with our clothes on all night bc it got to be a little cold. Woke up to no shampoo and extra conditioner when we showered and no iron to press our clothes. Fairwell greeting with an invoice under the door to be charged $38+tx twice for one night parking. We inquired with Yoselin M. at the front desk and advised her of our trials...she was very apologetic and credit the duplicate parking chg. I appreciated her assertive action to recognize the issues I brought to her attention and she immediately offered to credit the parking charge altogether. She seemed genuine for our concern and wanted to make sure we left satisfied. I was not looking for any credit or charge back, but only for the staff to know of the deficiencies so that some can give it the attention needed for the next guest. I appreciated her and I want mgmt to know that she was aggressive, assertive and expressed no reservation to take action to help remediate my concerns. Yoselin M. demonstrated excellent people skills, customer satisfaction with kindness and grace. Thank you Yoselin! Read less

I stayed here April 1 - April 2. The automated date calendar selected two weeks from my original booking but I meant to have it for the exact day and time I needed it. The girl working the front desk helped me realize my problem and worked with me to get some resting considering I was coming off a 9 hour shift (trucker). She got me a room, thank god, and figured out the situation in an amazing way. Thanks. But right after I walked away and waited for an elevator, the male security guard working the night shift shouted out “that wasn’t an accident, he wanted it for free”. It took me a while to actually figure out that he was gossiping and being a loud mouth trouble maker. While up in my room I thought of walking down and demanding my money back as well as contacting the higher ups of the hotel. For the rude ‘help’ that was mouthing off. I grabbed a pic of him and his name tag FYI. Thank goodness I fell asleep in the night but I awoke very upset about being made fun of when I paid $260 for a room. Unacceptable. I will NEVER stay at the Wyndham Santa Monica again. I work hard for my money and I don’t deserve to be made fun of by a security guard that had no business eavesdropping on my transaction. Good day. I’ve learned my lesson. Read less
