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...

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...

We travelled here from Ireland to get married on Santa Monica beach. We were staying in an ocean view room and the view was amazing! Well worth the upgrade. The hotel and rooms were spotless!

I've stayed in this hotel three times already. I travel to Sta Monica for work, and the location of the Ocean View Hotel is unbeatable!

We stayed here for one night. At check in requested an ocean view room and were thankful they had availability. Staff was super helpful. Rooms were nice and clean and I am a clean freak on hotel rooms. Hotel was in a very good location to walk to many places. Definitely recommend this hotel if staying in the area.

We loved our stay here. The staff could not be more helpful. Located on the seafront and 10 minutes from Santa Monica pier. Perfect setting. Try and get a room with a balcony so you can dry your wet swimming gear. Staff kindly tumble dried ours for us.

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.
