Reviewed yesterday NEW

great location and superb front desk staff. everything we wanted to see and visit was within walking distance. not too big a place so had the feeling of a boutique hotel. the room was fantastic, with a direct view of the famous pier, and little balcony to take it all in.

Excellent location a mere 5 min stroll to the pier. Hotel itself has been beautifully decorated although i do question the open walkways to the rooms when it rains? Reception staff extremely helpful including assisting in finding transport for the following morning and printing boarding cards. Thank you for getting us to Vegas! One downside is the rooms are slightly...

The hotel itself is lovely, staff were so friendly and the location is perfect. However, I have never experienced a more noisy hotel than this. The windows are literally paper thin, or just very very badly insulated. You can hear everything. 4am both mornings we were awake, you could hear the street cleaners, people getting out of cars, talking and...

My family stayed at the Ocean View during a weekend filled with sunshine. The hotel is located right in the heart of the happenings of Santa Monica with an unbeatable view. We remarked to ourselves about what seemed like an inordinate number of ambulance sirens into the wee hours of the night - we assume multiple hours of sun and...

My wife and I travelled from Florida for a weekend getaway/concert and stayed at the Ocean View hotel. We stayed two nights and had an amazing time. The hotel felt safe and was very comfortable. The staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. The garden view rooms are on the smaller side without any type of view. But we didn't spend...

My wife and I stayed here for vacation in Santa Monica. The location was perfect to take a walk around the beach and Third Street Promenade as well. And the scenery from ocean view room was so nice. After leaving the hotel to San Diego, I noticed that I forgot my cell phone in the hotel, and contacted customer service....

Exceptional location across from Santa Monica Pier. Only 20 minutes (in good traffic) to LA. Friendly staff with large room and large bathroom. We were pleasantly surprised by everything about this hotel. We've traveled from San Francisco down the coast and stayed at different hotels and this one has been the best bang for the buck. Highly recommended, only downside...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
