    Lovely architectural design with a café and garden in the center. Very friendly, patient and helpful librarians, pages and employees. An excellent variety of literatures along with access to wifi and computers. I also recommend observing all the grandeur of art displayed.

    Helpful, friendly staff who walk with you to show you what you are looking for. A smallish selection yet adequate for a small branch as they can order what you need. Easy free parking and reasonable hours.

Where to stay in Santa Monica

Santa Monica's hotels range from luxury to boutique, offering more than 3,500 rooms located at or near the waterfront. Staying at a beachfront resort can cost a bundle, so if you have a limited budget in mind, consider accommodations away from the water. Hotels just a few blocks from the ocean offer comfortable rooms with free Wi-Fi and cable TV at a fraction of the cost charged by their beachfront equivalents. For an even more affordable stay, consider one of the city's inns or motels.
