A modest motel just steps from lively Santa Monica Boulevard.. The Scene This small motel's best asset is its prime location just down the hill from Sunset Strip and mere steps from the slightly less self-conscious action of lively Santa Monica Boulevard. Expect clean and comfortable accommodations with few bells and whistles. Basic rooms offer a modest sense of style, and some even have kitchenettes. Each morning, pastries and coffee are served to on-the-go guests, and evening entertainment is on the doorstep at the walking distance clubs and restaurants of Sunset.
