Channel Road Inn – Santa Monica

leave a comment »

Channel Road Inn, Santa Monica

Strongly recommend this small cozy 15-room b&b inn if look for accomodation in Santa Monica, though must admit that it is a little bit far away from the Santa Monica downdown area – 3rd street promenade with around US12 taxi cost for each ride.

The hotels in Santa Monica are quite expensive.  With our limited budget, there isn’t much choice for us given we would need some place clean & tidy (i still remember 10 years ago my friends & I got scabies (very terrible) when we were in florida and so…clean & tidy is on  no. 1 agenda).. but luckily that we found Channel Road Inn on web and they really don’t let us down…I love it and i’ll stay there again if i come to santa monica next time..

A fun day with Iris (my high school buddy! wow…her photos are real great! i wish i can shoot professionally like her!)
The Disney Center Concert Hall – a building made of steel , a very beautiful building in LA
To me, it’s not merely a consert hall, it itself is a ART….it’s amazing to see such a great building. see more
