I stayed here about 11 or 12 years ago and I loved it. As a matter of fact, I took pictures and they remain in a photo album I have to this day! Needless to say I was excited to stay here again when I had the opportunity. Since my stay over a decade ago, I believe there is new... More

My family stayed here at the recommendation of a friend for three nights. The hotel is perfectly located towards the north end of the beach - out of the hustle and bustle next to the pier but still within walking distance of everything we wanted to stay. Rooms were very big and very clean.

We booked a 4 night stay in the Oceana as part of out 20 day Californian road trip. What a delight and utter peaceful haven this hotel was. We arrived in Santa Monica after a long drive down PCH from Monterey. The hotel is located on Ocean Drive just a mile or so from Santa Monica Pier and facing the... More

Spent seven nights at this hotel, two rooms costing us $1,000 per night in total for my wife and two teenagers. The hotel itself is clean and bright, the rooms large and spacious (although noisy, I think we had Shrek in the room above us!), good bathrooms, the staff at the front desk and the valet team quite excellent -...

A colossal disappointment. The Ocean Beach Club hotel promised to be a hip, premium alternative to Los Angeles’ many better hotel offerings. At first blush it looked pretty good. The rooms were big and relatively well laid out. The establishment, however, is a renovation of a very tired apartment complex and the hip burnish can’t hide old bones. Bathrooms were... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon trip. The service at the front desk is lovely, and they organised a complimentary hike and surf lesson for us as. As we were on honeymoon, they also sent a gift of sparkling wine to our room. The room was very, very large but the decor was terribly... More

This was our first trip to the Oceana and we will be back. A great hotel, with a central courtyard and pool. Our room, on the 1st floor was huge, very comfortable and clean. The restaurant was good, with the breakfast buffet offering wide choice of fresh, good quality food. The hotel staff were excellent, especially Lenny at valet parking.

Oceana had an absolutely amazing location, being located across the street from Santa Monica Beach. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants in the promenade. If you like to run/jog, there is a trail right across the street that runs down past the Santa Monica Pier. The hotel itself is very quaint. It has an old... More

Just finished a trip to Oceana and was quite impressed. Very smooth and professional check in. Excellent one bedroom suite with kitchen with a nice sitting area outside. We chose a first floor room facing in on the courtyard/pool area and could just step right out to the pool. Great for our two boys. Food service poolside was great and... More

A great little central courtyard and pool area. Rooms are clean and large. Restaurant food is pretty good but expensive. 30$ for breakfast buffet? This was my first stay, and I'd come again. Great staff.
