Unfortunately we only had one night in LA, but so glad we decided to spend the time in Santa Monica beach. This hotel is small but very accommodating. The rooms are tidy and clean. Very spacious bedroom with huge mirrors on wardrobes. Super comfy large bed. Bathroom is quite small but sufficient. Shower was good. There is also a kitchenette...

Great location, cute setting. Bad customer service. No lock on glass sliding door, microwave didn't plug in, no hot water, dirty cups. No safe in room or iron or ironing board. Room small when traveling with children and many suitcases.

We were in town for a wedding, that was at Shutters on the Beach. The Seaview is only a block away from Shutters and the beach. Definitely an old school type of place,loads of character. Our room had a kitchenette which was very nice. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the tv was a good size, large closet....

Room had microwave but socket was out of reach when we tried to use it. Not very clean . Parking was difficult for our rented minivan. Not good value at 336 dollars for 2 nights. Traffic noise from street

This place is hard, if not impossible, to beat for price and position. It is quaint, sort of old world. Sixties written all over it. It has an atmosphere that is kind of natural. I found the staff to be helpful and friendly. A better room than last time, and in fact a very nice one. I am sure I...

Stayed here for 4 nights late march for my daughters 16th bday trip. I can't say enough about the place. Great beds, glass shower, fridge in room, two sinks, big space, beach 1min walk away. The roof top deck area was an amazing place to chill, meet people and warm in the sun. Rosa was cutest host, proud of her...

I tried contacting the hotel a couple times by email. I wanted to inquire about renting a room, when they responded they were rude, unhelpful and really didn't care. The website indicated for me to call to inquire about availability, when I emailed them they said go to the website. Just bad business people

Flimsy curtains on the windows did not keep light out.Free parking,but tight spaces at best. The room was clean. If you need a place for a night to...

I had a trip planned to stay with friends but at late notice could not stay with them. This hotel was within walking distance of their house and just about within my budget. Booking a room proved difficult as there were so few available for the dates I needed but following emails we made it (by moving rooms after a...

Seaview Motel has an excellent situation for a reasonable price. It is very close to the Santa Monica beach and walking distance to the pier. Room is nice and big enough. The bathroom and small kitchen are situated at the back and would need some upgrade even though everything is cleaned. Since the windows in these rooms are not recent,...

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.
