Room was clean and well kept with everything at hand, including an iron and board. One thing that really puzzled me was...

We checked into this fantastic location near the Santa Monica pier but we're bummed that the room had no drawers to put our clothes in. We are staying here for 7 days so living out of our suitcase is a bit much

It was my first time to be at Oceanview Hotel and I must say, they are one of the best remodelled hotel near the harbour. Short walk to the Harbor, restaurants, shopping places, theatre, beach, etc. You don't have to worry about where to go because this hotel is very accessible to everything. Hotel rooms and common area like the...

Was here just one night for business. My second time here. Very nicely updated older hotel. Nicely priced, great friendly service, perfect location right near the Santa Monica Pier. Room was like what you would Find in a luxury hotel. Large double shower head glass Doored bathroom. Modern clean decor. And was very inexpensive.

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.
