It was perfectly located to 3rd St Prom & beach. The rooms were super clean & quiet. Liz was so helpful and Sergio and cleaners were very friendly and accomodating. I have already recommended it to my family and friends.

My wife and I spend 8 total nights at the Ocean View during stays of 5 and 3 nights over the past two weeks. Originally, we were going to stay at another Santa Monica establishment for the final three days, but because we enjoyed the Ocean View so much, we cancelled our other reservation and returned to the Ocean View....

Newly refurbished, with clean, tidy rooms and professional reception staff, this is a good option. The ocean front room had a slim, covered balcony. The hotel has a smart new and modern reception and the rooms have been redecorated too in a more traditional hotel standard style. They opted for cold-white bulbs in the bedroom lights which provides a morgue...

Ocean View has a prime location near Santa Monica pier and 3rd Ave promenade. That is what you are paying a premium for. Hotel itself it's just ok.

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.
