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 -...

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.
