Travelling on business in LA, we always stay in Santa Monica (the sun, the food!). A frequent guest at the Wyndham, my colleague and I were more than pleasantly surprised by Ocean View Hotel. First off, it was cheaper (always a plus), location was better (not speaking as a film scout here) with a morning view to the Pacific Ocean,...

Very overpriced (we paid almost $1000 for 3 nights) but you are paying for the best location merely moments walk from the Santa Monica Pier with great ocean views. Ask for the top floor front room to get the best views. Also there is no free water… for hotel guests or Wi-Fi when we went in January 2015. We were...

The location, accommodations are fine and convenient , the rooms are a little small, and if you book a back room you will hear the trash truck come by early every morning to empty the mass amount of bottles left from the bar next door..

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.
