The room is as described and with full of sunshine of California. Location is perfect for the beach and shopping center. I'm happy spending two nights here.
I stayed I Joe's for a week as I was attending a conference. The location is fantastic; close walking distance to everything in Santa Monica. Joe was quick to respond and was available if I had needed anything. The room was as described.
Joe is very quick to respond to my last min reservation for a one night stay to catch an early morning flight the next day. Great location, couple blocks to beach and restaurants. Also free parking with permit. Apt was quiet and safe. The bathroom was adequate with good water pressure but had no lock, although I felt totally safe. Joe is accomdating and courteous with directions and recommendations. However, although the room/apt appeared tidy it was not very clean. Carpets desperately needed a vacuum and shampoo. Sheets did not appear to be fresh. But towel provided was clean. In a pinch, for the one night and the price it was fine because of the great location/fast respond.
A good location, however I would not stay again or recommend it to someone else. The space was not clean and the bathroom door does not lock or completely close for comfortable privacy.
I was not aware the bathroom door lock was broken - being fixed today.
I always clean the room before a guest arrives - in this case 3 guests.
Awesome location! Excellent host! Flexible hours!
A fantastic location for what I needed John was most accommodating. The room was basic and suited the price.
Ottima posizione rispetto alla 3rd street promenade, raggiungibile a piedi in 5 minuti. Non c'è un parcheggio privato, ma grazie al parking pass lasciato da Joe abbiamo potuto parcheggiare lungo la strada senza dover pagare il parcheggio.
Per quanto riguarda l'appartamento, la camera è spaziosa ed il bagno è privato, ma la pulizia lascia un po' a desiderare... tuttavia per un breve soggiorno ci si può adattare.
Great location, close to everything, but still a nice quiet place to end your day
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!
