    This hotel is 20 blocks from the beach area but does have a free shuttle to the beach. The local bus service also stops right outside the hotel and only costs $1. The IHOP next door to the hotel does an excellent breakfast.

    The hotel is on the junction of two busy roads and we did hear a lot of traffic noise. Our room was next to the lifts and the vending machines which made droning noises all night, so a poor nights sleep. The hotel is 20 blocks from the beach but still charges a lot of $ for the location. Not good value for money in my opinion.

    Parking and access to freeway

    A little high on price. Error on bill for 2nd room was not appreciated.

    The staff were amazing could not do enough for you. Location was good and Hotel provided a shuttle on the hour for drop off and pick up. Ihop next store was excellent value for food, the pancakes were awesome!!!. There is a bus service which provides a service all night aprox every 2 mins, at the low cost of $1 per trip, even less for seniors as well as day passes. The Hop on Hop off busses are great value, just remember to keep an eye on the timetable.

    The Gateway's shuttle service made the hotel easily accessible to Santa Monica Pier, Third St Promenade and to the Red Hop On Hop Off sightseeing bus. Also the rapid bus service stop to Beverly Hills around the corner and the crosstown bus stop outside the door.

    Staff where very helpful and free shuttle bus to beach.

    Rooms need renovating, very old carpets and almost a stale smell in our room. Quite a long walk from beach and night life if thats what you're going to Santa Monica for but bus service is outside and very good.

    Loved the balcony with table and chairs as well as lounge chairs for relaxing. Great place to enjoy drinks and food with family/ friends staying with us. It was so convenient having IHop restaurant on site also!! Shuttle bus access to shopping and beach is a nice feature.
