Great place, awesome view from window, kind and helpful stuff - on our first day we were upgraded for free, this is why we came back to that place on our last day in CA. I hope we will be able to visit that place again!!!!

The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The rest of the furnishings need replaced. The outside of the hotel looks a little run down and could use a paint job. The table and chairs on the balcony and lower level outside of each room are nice. Coffeemaker in the room is nice. Location is the reason to stay here....

Good location in Santa Monica however service leaves a lot to be desired. A group of 6 of us were travelling throughout CA in late September 2016 and stayed 3 nights at the Bayside Hotel. Rooms were satisfactory but following our return to Australia - during the next 10 days, each of us who used our credit cards to pay...

We stayed at Bayside for the final leg of our California holiday from the UK. This hotel is clean, tidy and well run but the room only rate is a real shock as this is not plush accommodation. The room was comparable to our basic $65 Quality Inn stay in Orlando years back, but I guess that's all down to...

Very nice place, so close to the beach! Nice, well equipped and tidy rooms. Friendly staff, ready to help 24/7. The only drawback is very expensive parking. 32$ is way too much. You can park on a street (if you are lucky) for much less.

Spent three nights at the Bayside after flying in from Australia. Great location, right on the beach, with views across the water from some rooms. Reasonably priced, it is a clean, neat hotel with comfortable beds, the bare necessities in the room and friendly 24hr reception. We had one night of noisy neighbours above us - the walls are a...

The location was great. A close walk to the beach. The first room they put me in had mold on the ceiling in the shower stall. The door had a big gap on the bottom so the light shined from outside was visible from the inside. They moved me to another room. The door had the same problem, but no...

This place is good for the price. I did not realize how close it was to the beach which was great. However, it is also very close to the street, and did not feel like it had the best security The rooms were clean but had a lot of wear and tear. Cha Cha Chicken is across the street and...

We loved this hotel. The hotel has a good atmosphere, rooms were nice and clean, with great beds. We woke up and rented the bikes in the hotel and rode on the Santa Monica beach. I wish we stayed longer.

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.
