This motel is a sham. They make you pay in full up front and when you look at the rooms which are so disgusting that you turn around and check out immediately to find that they will only refund you a portion of your money. It is dangerous both inside of the rooms and outside. It is a health hazard. This is basically a flophouse and is a blithe on Santa Monica. The people that own it and run it are in it for nothing more than trying to bilk as much money out of unassuming vacationers as possible. There is no attempt at being a professional Motel. DO NOT STAY HERE. DANGEROUS TO CHILDREN AND A TRUE HEALTH RISK TO ANYONE.
No fan stuffy room. Bed poked ribs and the other guests were up till 3 am. No bath moldy shower stall. The motel was overly priced for the quality and a major let down being it's right by the beach. I'm not picky either if I was I would'nt have stayed there in the first place by the look of the place.
Disliked iT, STUNK LIKE MILDEW,WE KILLED 2 ROACHES IT WAS EXTREMELY NOISEY ALL NIGHT DID NOT SLEEP. DONT EVER STAY IN RM 109 ITS NEXT TO WHERE THEY KEEP THE HOUSEKEEPING CARTS THEY AWAKE YOU AROUND 7.30 AM
The best thing I liked about this hotel was the location. It was right across the Santa Monica Pier. Walking distance. The one thing I did not like About this place was the bathroom it was to small actually the bathroom stall was. Other than that it was great!!!
We checked in for $135 a night and when we saw how dirty and smelly it was, we tried to get refund. Would not do it, so we endured the night only to find bed bugs in the morning. This place needs to be shut down!
This is a disgrace. Filthy. There must be at least 100 different health violations. Some other guest threw up and my daughter slipped in it. Told the night clerk, he took a pitcher of water to clean it up. THe next day it was still there. The clerk said he doesnt clean up messes. I said it is your property, his comment was he wasn't going to argue. Mold, bed bug bites, and wear your shoes. Santa Monica should be ashamed that this place is in operation. Gross. Pool was green. This is an American Pie place to visit, ran by forieners who do not take pride in themselves or the beauty of nature. Note to owner Sell to someone who cares enough to attract and satify customers.
Terrible service, rooms are very dirty, sheet are dirty with stains, restrooms are fealty with broken windows and rooms do not have any air condition, it seems like they have never made a renovation in decades. I urge you if you have any kids please do not stay at Pacific Sands Motel at 1515 Ocean Blvd, Santa Monica CA 90401, it is very unsafe and dirty.
After reading all of the other reviews I totally agree with all of them. If I can find at least one good thing about it is that if you need a fan they have standard box fans at the front desk and they don't even charge for the use of them. All you have to do is ask. One disheartening thing that I heard from a local is that during the winter months the hotel is used as temporary housing for vagrants and the homeless. As thoughtful and uncharacteristically nice it is of the hotel to do that they should, at the very least, clean the rooms after that season is over! Floors very dirty! Don't walk around the room without some shoes or flipflops on. Had I known that there was a Holiday Inn just a half a block away before I booked at PS, believe me, I would have gladly paid the $100 more for it.
We made reservations here in Sept. 06 for the beginning of Oct. After reading some of the reviews we decided to immediately cancel our reservations. On Dec. 14 06 the hotel charged our credit card $256. Our reservations were for Oct. The manager is rude. I have been told unless I have a cancellation number they will not refund my money. Who keeps a cancellation number for 3 months after the initial reservation? If they would have charged me in October I would have had the number. Also, under the Better Business Bureau this hotel understandably has an F. I wonder when they are going to decide to charge my card again. I had to cancel it. Dont Stay Here.
My husband and I stayed at the Pacific Sands Motel and were subsequently covered from neck to toe with mite bites. We were in such bad shape that we needed the medical attention of a dermatologist. Mite bites are no laughing matter; mites are really difficult to get rid of once you have them. The rooms are filthy and smell as if they have been bombed with insecticides (they seem to know about the problem!), but even that can't hide the smell of just plain old dirt. Other guests were yelling in the middle of the night. The so called heated pool was full of dirt floating all over the surface of the water. The managment is not helpful and friendly, certainly not customer oriented. When asked about the sign in front of the building which states that the place will be torn down soon, the boss made inappropriate jokes about tearing the place down and building something new when he finally gets his money released from the Hisbollahs in Lebanon. Folks, this is just a hideous place, don't go, even if it is the cheapest place around the area. Investing a few dollars more is in this case a must and wise decision.
