This is a lovely spot. Close to the beach and great food and shopping. Room was very nice. We didn't need the view so we had an interior room. Everyone was friendly. Would stay again for sure. Only thing I would suggest would be to have bottled water at no fee to guests in room for the coffee maker. Other...

We stayed in early December with 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 11, 8 and 3). We had an oceanfront balcony room which was nicely appointed. Rooms were somewhat small for the price, but you are right across the street from the Santa Monica pier and beach. Amazing views from the rooms and multiple great restaurants nearby. We would definitely...

My family, friends, and myself stayed at the Ocean View hotel for my wedding at the end of September 2016. Everyone truly enjoyed their stay! You can't beat the location either! I was nervous about the club next door, but we did not hear any noise and no one else in our group complained. Most guests stayed Fri-Mon. The staff...

Just spent another week at Ocean View over the Thanksgiving Holiday. I'm from the Midwest so I like to be able to view the ocean when I wake up in the morning.

We were treated royally with every request fulfilled in a timely fashion. Our room had a splendid view of the Santa Monica Pier and the ocean and the hotel was withing a block of the pier, two blocks of the promenade and within walking distance of so many great restaurants. We can't wait to go back.

The ocean view rooms are worth it. Reasonably priced in comparison to neighboring hotels, you get a great view of the Santa Monica Beach and the Pier, which lit up at night is a great sight to see. The windows were well insulated as we were not at all bothered by street noise during the night. The hotel is only...

Modern and clean hotel on great location. Across road from Santa Monica Beach, one block down from pier and two blocks off 3rd St shopping precinct. Bars and restaurants all around from fine dining to take out/family restaurants. Hotel only about 5 levels up, so very casual hotel, not a huddle bustle hotel.

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.
