This is one of those hotels that you either love or hate. It is situated very close to everything in Santa Monica, so close it is untrue. It is however a throwback to the 1950's style motels, it could be a well preserved museum piece. It has withstood the pressures of modern developments and stands proud as a symbol of...

This is a great motel, nice prices for Santa Monica. You have the beach a block away, a cool dive bar across the car park called Chez Jay. Downtown SM is close by too, about a 5 minute walk along Ocran Avenue. Shutters on the beach is not far away, the breakfast served there is great, a real treat when...

This hotel has a very good location close to the Santa Monica Pier and beautiful Santa Monica beach. It takes only a few minutes to walk down to the Pier. The hotel is quite cheap, so it is a very good choice if you`re on a budget. The hotel rooms are very clean and tidy. There is a lot of...

The Ocean Lodge is a decent place to stay if your looking for budget accommodation. Good location and in walking distance of shopping precinct, Santa Monica Beach & Pier. Room was comfortable. Only downside was arriving off an early flight at 7.30am and the office did not open until 9.30 so were pretty much hanging around for 2 hours until...

Very clean and very convenient. That's it. It's not quaint or cute in any way, and there are no views of any sort. However, if you want a good location from which to enjoy Santa Monica, it'll do the trick. There is limited onsite parking, but the garage that they offer for just $5.00 a day is a safe and...

Very good location near the Santa Monica Pier and the Pomegranate st. The rooms are simple with no great features, but nice. Just a little smelly of humidity but we thought it could be because it is close to beach. Just 20 min drive from atractions like Universal Studios.

This is basic lodging, but the rooms are clean, and 1 block from the Pier, and Great Restaurants within a short walk. You can hear almost every street noise in our unit #217, which was a 2 BR Suite (?). For the price of $250 per nite w/parking a little disappointing. However, Other hotels in the area are $450 per...

If you want upmarket & luxury this hotel is not for you. If you want clean, affordable in the heart of Santa Monica than this hotel is for you. Travelling with 2 teenage boys is hard in the US especially with bedding - its very hard to find twin beds so when I saw a room that had 2 double...

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.
