    The busiest Costco in the USA I've been told, and I don't doubt it. That said, it is clean, orderly, and well stocked nonetheless. One of the best wine selections of any Costco I have ever seen.

    Not in Santa Monica, but near enough to include on a Santa Monica list. Surprising vegan-friendly. Great prices on nuts, produce, non-dairy milks, snacks, paper goods, rice, beans, cereal, and more.

    This Costco parking lot (like most) is a challenge to negotiate on weekends. HOWEVER, in spite of thousands of daily customers, the staff here is awesome and very service oriented.

    Has really best selection of all the Costco's I go to. No wonder they are so busy! Try going weekdays, Mon-Thurs. And if you have to go Fri-Sun earlier is best.

    Call ahead to check stock. If not in stock and you leave your prescription there, keep calling to bug them because they don't call to let you know it's ready to be picked up.

    The building next door to the MDR-Culver City is being torn down. Costco's enlarging their own structure & parking area. Result : more congestion.

    Make a quick left when you enter...avoid the main crowded aisles and make your way around the perimeter. This is a fast lane- avoid if you plan to saunter along!

    Photo center is horrific. If you're having prints made make sure you have proof that you own the negatives. It's CA law but Costco does very little to educate the customer. Use someone else.
