Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.

This was an affordable option with enough beds for a family with teens. Short walk to the pier, beach, and shops / restaurants. Staff were helpful and friendly.
You can hear the adjoining room conversations and street noise - but the location is the main focus.

This hotel was very unscrupulous! The rate I was charged from my Expedia reservation for a cancellable room was double the amount being advertised the day I checked in. I was charged $435 for a super crappy room with old, uncomfortable mattresses (gross) I asked to cancel the room and rebook at the day’s rate, which $200 less and they told me the best they could do was take $50 off. What a huge disappointment to the end of a fantastic vacation. Do not stay at this hotel unless you like to be screwed over and over charged to stay in a icky room (on a nice street).

Thanks for your recent feedback. Cancelable reservations are able to be refunded as long as its not within 48 hours of the check in date. We apologize for the misunderstanding. I will go ahead and look further into this issue, we highly value our guests concerns so we can go above and beyond your expectations. We always keep our rooms up to date in our retro beach hotel. We're happy to be located two minutes from the pier, and next to some of Santa Monica's best restaurants. We hope you do come back and we're able to accomodate your needs.

Great location and clean rooms. Spent the 4th of July here in a 2 bedroom top floor with a view of Ocean Ave and all the people enjoying their day. A few steps away from the pier, entertainment and restaraunts. We highly Recommend the Ocean Lodge! AAA

It reminded me of the 50's. Yet, it is featured in the current Amazon series "Goliath". Had everything necessary including plenty of towels and coffee in the room. WiFi quite good. Parking is a hassle. Best bet is to arrive early and pay the fee for one of the four on-site spaces. Adjacent parking is half the price but with no in and out allowed. Front desk staff varies widely. Woman was very helpful. Guy offered no help when some mangy cur took part of our expensive parking place. Chez Jay right next door is a big plus. Great location.
