We stayed here for the last 2 nights of a 2 week trip. The man who checked us in was fairly vague apart from when he tried to get us to upgrade to an ocean view room. Our room was overlooking the car park at the rear but was large with a nice big bed and clean white bed linen.... More

We arrived to find the ocean view room we'd booked was not available and we'd been given a rear room, on the busy road, but were being charged the same (high) rate because it had a kitchen. When I pointed out we didn't actually want a kitchen and why was the room I'd booked not available, I just got a... More

Love it here - we only stayed one night, but for the price, the location was fantastic. This hotel is positioned right across the road from the beach. It's an older style place, but the rooms have been recently renovated with a fresh, beachy theme - quite contemporary and very clean. The hotel has a little garden area in the... More

On our last three visits to Santa Monica, we've always stay at the Bayside Hotel. However this last stay really gave us the downside of this motel (not hotel). First: our reservation for an ocean front view room (made 6 months in advance) had mysteriously disappeared from their database. We had a confirmation number but they claim they had a... More

We were on a tight budget and so for us this was a 'splash out' last night before flying home, even though we stayed in one of the cheapest rooms. We didn't regret it, mainly because the location was fantastic - we walked across the road for a swim on the nearly empty beach on our last morning, without having... More

My daughter booked me into the Bayside Hotel for three nights. It has recently been renovated and is owned by the upscale Casa Del Mar a block away.. This was originally an apartment complex. The rooms are not fancy but they are very clean and the staff keeps the entire premises clean. The beach location is excellent and you are... More

Just steps of the beach and 400 meters of boardwalk to the Santa Monica Pier! Nice bed, but nothing extra. Cozy and clean :) Walking distance to both happening mainstreet and the fantastic 3rd street promenade!

The place was clean and well kept and staff at reception were welcoming. The location couldnt be much better , just across from the beach in what seemed a pretty nice area. We stayed in a ocean view room the first night with a king bed which was all that was available and although the accomodation was basic it was... More

We picked this hotel for the location alone as we have stayed in SM previously and were apparox 19 blocks away from the beachfront. However the hotel web-site informed us that it had been renovated but we think we must have got the only room that had not! It was cleaned every day, the bed was huge and very comfortable... More

Stayed there on 5/9/09 for one night of first visit to Santa Monica. It's located in a quiet neighborhood, very close to beach and famous pier. Upscale hotels nearby. The hotel room was recently completely refurbished- spotlessly clean. Beds were firm and comfortable;staff friendly and very accoommodating. Decent sized rooms for the money. TV was a basic older model.

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.
