We eventually did not make it as we had to cancel due to Covid-19. But HI Santa-Monica DID NOT return the $15 deposit money and were unresponsive to my escalations throwing policy at us and not being sensitive about our need to preserve our lives and health during this global epidemic.

Hello Deepak, Sorry for any confusion regarding the return of your deposit after canceling your reservation, you should have been advised to contact the website in which you made the reservation. HI Santa Monica is not in possession of your $15.00 deposit.
