Verified Reviews of The Pierside Santa Monica

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I called your hotel for a reservation and was connected to a third party. This third party charged $30 more than the clerk at desk said it cost. The reservation person said parking was included, however the hotel charged me an additional $40 more. I was told room was ocean front, hotel sits sideways and has no ocean front. The clerks were horrible at front desk. No ownership and kept saying our fault for going through third party?which we did not! Principle is the thing, $30 extra plus parking they charged is a problem but clerks snotty attitude was the worst. Bait and switch comes to mind. Hotel was clean and location nice, I didn't like being upcharged.
