The Bayside is right across the street from a park and the ocean. It is within easy walking distance of restaurants and stores. The rooms are large, beds are comfortable. The tub needs to be reglazed or replaced; the shower head definitely needs to be replaced & the front desk staff were notified of that. Paying a few extra dollars...

Well located only a few metres from the beach. About a fifteen minute walk from the bars and restaurants at Santa Monica and the Pier. We stayed in a room with two double beds. Clean and fresh rooms overlooking a small courtyard with sun loungers (not that we needed them in Jan). Safe in room and all rooms are in...

What you see is what you get there wasn't any hidden nasties. Just as the photos show it's exactly how the room is. Santa Monica is not the flashiest of places so $200 a night is pretty pricey in opinion. You're basically paying for the location here as you can walk to the pier. I would recommend staying the other...

This hotel may not look like the 4 to 5 star hotels in the Santa Monica area, but it's truly a diamond in the rough. The staff is friendly and they price matched a lower rate. The rooms are very clean and have all the ammentities including a wet bar, snack bar and Keurig coffee machine. The beds are large...

Checked in around 8:30 pm. Registration clerk was very nice. Very helpful with dining, shopping and bargain hunting suggestions. He was very accommodating. Different clerk the next day at check out was equally helpful and kind. Our room was super cute and the bathroom was huge! Everything was clean and there was a cute little kitchenette. We stayed in room...

The guys at this hotel were awesome. They were so helpful and the accommodation was great, simple, clean and very comfortable. The location is great also, handy to the beach and short walk to shops and cafes.

Great place, awesome view from window, kind and helpful stuff - on our first day we were upgraded for free, this is why we came back to that place on our last day in CA. I hope we will be able to visit that place again!!!!

The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The rest of the furnishings need replaced. The outside of the hotel looks a little run down and could use a paint job. The table and chairs on the balcony and lower level outside of each room are nice. Coffeemaker in the room is nice. Location is the reason to stay here....

Good location in Santa Monica however service leaves a lot to be desired. A group of 6 of us were travelling throughout CA in late September 2016 and stayed 3 nights at the Bayside Hotel.

We stayed at Bayside for the final leg of our California holiday from the UK. This hotel is clean, tidy and well run but the room only rate is a real shock as this is not plush accommodation. The room was comparable to our basic $65 Quality Inn stay in Orlando years back, but I guess that's all down to...

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.
