Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were on the third floor in a room on the front that had a small balcony with a couple of chairs to sit out and enjoy the view of the pier and beach. It was great to just relax and people watch in the late afternoon with a bottle of wine! As soon as we asked they emptied the...

We stayed at the top floor with a great view overlooking the beach. No noise at all and the room was nice and modern, so was the bathroom. Paid extra for the view with balcony, it was a balcony that in Sweden would be called "a french balcony", meaning that you hardly could sit there, so tiny. Don't pay this...

Great service, great rooms. You can tell management puts a lot of thought into constantly improving their operations to make the guest experience better. They could easily rely on the location to rent rooms but my take away was that they insist on creating a great guest experience.

I stay at this hotel on every trip to Santa Monica. After trying a number of hotels I've found my "home". Location is excellent, right on Ocean, facing the ocean. Easy access to the beach. Friendly and accommodating staff. Comfy beds. Great restaurants within 1 block.

We stayed here while visiting friends in April. The parking is a bit expensive at 38.00 for Valet but it is Santa Monica. Easy walk to the Pier and go visit the Camera Obscura across the street, built in late 1800's. It is pretty cool, and free. The hotel is great, room is a bit small with 2 queens and...

Perfect location, 5 minute walk to the pier and the beach, as well as the mall. No restaurant but good food options within close walking distance. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. However, it is very noisy, as the sound proofing/insulation was insufficient. We could hear everyone coming and going in the corridor or in the car park. Also, could...

I traveled to Los Angeles with my husband and parents April 9-12 for vacation. After researching and reading reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to stay in Santa Monica at the Ocean View Hotel.

We loved the location of this hotel - right on Ocean Blvd half-a-block north of the Santa Monica Pier. We only stayed one night, but the room was nicely upscale: luxurious bedding, nice bathroom (though not a fan of the rain-shower head on the ceiling), pretty décor. We had a small balcony that didn't have view, though I'm not sure...

Hotel location is excellent, overlooking the Pacific and near Santa Monica Pier and the 3rd Street Promenade. The rooms are fairly spacious.

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.
