Just imagine how disappointing it would be staying in a hotel where the ladies in receiption are neither friendly nor helpful. Our advice is you read carefully their confirmation, room details were not on it in our case. We booked ocean view upgrade option but by check-in we were told they are sold out.

It feels just like home with a very spacious room. It is situated near to the beach with walking distance of Santa Monica Pier and shops The staff are so polite and friendly. Delicious breakfast but it is a bit pricey. Highly recommend to everyone and will definitely go back there again. The only thing to mention is that the... More

The Oceana is a traditional Santa Monica establishment, wide windows to the sidewalk, four-square balconied rooms around a central pool, bright, modern decor and furnishings and all perfectly lovely. The welcome one receives at the reception desk seems genuinely warm and friendly as indeed are all the staff. During my visit I was given very helpful office type support in... More

Stayed here with my partner and my daughter in a one bedroomed kitchenette suite overlooking the courtyard swimming pool. We found this a very comfortable room, extremely large and well equipped. It was a lovely atmosphere around the pool and a great place in the evening, very tranquil. The food in the restaurant in the evening was extremely nice and... More

We staid at the Oceana for four nights in a corner suite with a very large living room area. The decor is laid back with homely touches and all rooms open out onto the nice central pool which gives the place a classic motel vibe in a good way. Pros The location is excellent for Santa Monica shops and restaurants... More

This wasnt our first time at the Oceana and it certainly wont be our last. The bedrooms are perfection and feel like a home from home. The toiletries are from C Bigelow and are amazing. The bed is by far one of the comfiest I have slept in and is HUGE. We try to always stay in the rooms with... More

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 -...
