Overall, my experience staying at Joe's was just okay. I checked in at 8:30am and as Joe was not home he had left a key for me. Someone had rented the room the night before and had not left yet, but I was able to drop off my suitcase which was great. When I returned around 4pm in the afternoon, the room was still not ready and there was no toilet paper. I left again and while I was gone I got a message from Joe that the bed sheets were in the dryer in the basement of the building and that I would have to make up the bed as he would not be home until 10pm or so. I made up the bed however the sheets did not smell fresh. There was no shower towel put out but toilet paper appeared as I had told Joe there was none. The bedroom and the apartment were tidy enough, but not very clean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean enough. I would probably not stay again due the cleanliness and unreliability of having the room ready and basic needs like toilet paper, but I was happy to have a last minute, safe place to stay in a great location.
Joe was wonderful! I contacted him late in the afternoon, the same day as my arrival to Santa Monica and he replied quickly and accepted our booking request directly. His place is really close to the main places in Santa Monica, if you want a good location at a really reasonable price, this is a great place to stay. Comfortable bed for two, big enough room. Thanks Joe!
Very thankful that Joe could have us even with only some hours notice. Great location with walking distance to the beach and 3rd street promenade!
The location is great and the apartment is pretty good for one night. However, if planning to stay longer, I may recommend a different place.
The location was fantastic—just a few blocks away from Whole Foods, the amazing 3rd Street Promenade, and the beach. Joe was friendly and responsive to all of my needs. The bed was very comfortable and the Internet was rock-solid and fast.
Great location, was happy to spend a night here and Joe was good to chat to.
Joe is a very host. He waited for us when we arrived late ftom the airport.
He is very helpful when we need information.
His place is a very good location close from everything.
Joe's place is definitely in a good location, and he was nice but not around much when I was there. We had a bit of a problem with the arranged check-in, but there is a cafe very nearby where I was able to wait until he got home. Amenities like toilet paper and clean towels were not at hand and had to be requested, but I had a great visit in Santa Monica anyway! Megan
Loved the location of the place, close to the beach, close to the shopping area. The room was spacious enough for two, you could probably squeeze in one or two more friends in there. The bed was comfy, just that the place was a little dusty. Other than that all was great. Joe is more than accommodating, given that we booked the place one day before checking in. I'll definitely book this place again!
