I have to stay in Santa Monica periodically for work (not reimbursed)...and found this place. It's a fine little spot for a reasonable cost in one of the most expensive areas of So Cal...the rooms are nice and clean and ample; the staff is nice; there's complimentary coffee in the morning and it is a great location. Free parking, too.... More

Nice mattress, cute little courtyard, of course it's all a bit crammed (especially the tiny parking lot) and maintained on a shoestring but with love. We were granted a much-appreciated late checkout w/o a hitch, and a permission to keep the car on the property after we checked out and went to the beach one more time (yes it's no... More

I stayed at the Ocean Park Inn this weekend and there were definitely bed bugs thriving in our room. We left as soon as we discovered this, informed the manager at the front desk, he claimed he had never heard this complaint. Clearly not true after reading more of the reviews this morning. I physically saw multiple living bed bugs... More

If we have infestation then we should get at least 20 complaints a day and more important we could not be in business by now. The bed bug is... More

We are seven blocks from the beach and there is no hotel or a motel between us and the Ocean Avenue and the hotels on that Avenue are three times higher in price. They are luxury hotels and we do recommend if someone likes to pay that much then it is advisable to book a room there. Thank you More

Located on a busy road, this is a very noisy hotel. We had trouble sleeping due to traffic noise. Room is clean but very basic. Reasonably priced. Unless on a tight budget, stay elsewhere.

We appreciate any honest review. Our front units are close to traffic and during the day we have some noise. The back units are recommended for people who are very sensitive with noise. Thank you. More

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.
