We travelled here from Ireland to get married on Santa Monica beach. We were staying in an ocean view room and the view was amazing! Well worth the upgrade. The hotel and rooms were spotless! The location to everything was perfect. A few steps and you were on the beach. Behind us was a huge shopping promenade. The streets were...

I've stayed in this hotel three times already. I travel to Sta Monica for work, and the location of the Ocean View Hotel is unbeatable! Right in front of the beach, surrounded by shops, cafes and restaurants, and walking distance from Venice Beach. The rooms are clean, modern and spacious, and the staff is very friendly.

We stayed here for one night. At check in requested an ocean view room and were thankful they had availability. Staff was super helpful. Rooms were nice and clean and I am a clean freak on hotel rooms. Hotel was in a very good location to walk to many places. Definitely recommend this hotel if staying in the area.

We loved our stay here. The staff could not be more helpful. Located on the seafront and 10 minutes from Santa Monica pier. Perfect setting. Try and get a room with a balcony so you can dry your wet swimming gear. Staff kindly tumble dried ours for us.

Great location across the road from the beach and round the corner from plenty of shops and pubs. This is its best asset. Rooms ok and only basic facilities. Watch out for those resort fees as well. Overall recommend (mainly based on location).

Location is fabulous. The place was clean and the staff was attentive. Then why only a 3? While it does have the obligatory bath robes and we did have a top floor king room with full ocean view, the room itself was rather small (as was the balcony). The road noise was excessive...so much so,that it didn't matter whether we...

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...

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.
