We just recently stayed at the Ocean Lodge Hotel for Spring Break. Overall it was just okay. We stayed in the Deluxe Junior Suite With Three Beds. While pretty small, it fit all of us. Storage is a huge problem. There is one dresser with 3 small drawers. Not enough for five people for a week long stay. There is... More

I have just spent 7 days at the Ocean Lodge and it was everything I needed for my stay. That is to say, a clean room, comfortable bed and easy reach of all that West LA has to offer on your doorstep. I have stayed in much more expensive hotels in Santa Monica and, whilst they are pretty cool, I... More

I am giving this motel four stars not because it is a four star hotel, because it plainly is not, but because of the price and location. It is a very plain and simple road-side type motel, but it is about one block from the beach, and one block from the Santa Monica pier, on Ocean Avenue. It is right... More

I stayed for a second time at the Ocean lodge and my stay was as nice as the first time. Very nice location, onsite parking and a very nice restaurant within 50 ft of the hotel. The staff was professional and helpful when I needed directions to a business meeting. My next visit from Seattle will include a stop of... More

Because of the nature of my work, which involves a lot of traveling, I have had the opportunity to stay in hotels of all ranges, from 5-star ones to inexpensive motels. However, I can say with all my experience that the Ocean Lodge Hotel is by far the worst one I have had the misfortune of staying in. Did you... More

We couldn't have picked a better hotel and it was significantly less expensive than most in the area (and most of them were much further from the Pier). It's an old motel, but they are renovating all the rooms. Ours was spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable (and not sagging) and the linens were good -- looked fairly new. My... More

I was going to LAX to pick my niece and a friend up for a cruise over Christmas and decided since their plane was not getting in until late that we would just stay in a hotel and drive back to Capistrano Beach the next day to go on our Christmas cruise on the NCL Star. This hotel is right... More

I had a very nice stay and loved the location. Room was nice in size, very clean and even had a decent wifi connection. I loved the park next door and how close it was to the Santa Monica Pier. I will stay there the next time I am in town

Took my 8 yr old granddaughter to Disneyland this summer and wanted to share 3rd Street Promenade with her as she is a bit of a singer and entertainer so I thought this would be entertainers heaven. Made no reservations and drove around the area we wanted to be until we saw this hotel had a vacancy. I was very... More

This hotel is ideally located right in the centre of Santa Monica. Initially it seems quite expensive, but is a bargain compared to the other nearby hotels. Our room was relatively basic but clean, and in good condition. The reception staff were polite, friendly and very helpful. Has Wifi. Better to park in the car park between the hotel and... More
