Given the price we paid in advance for our stay, we weren't expecting very much at all. How wrong we were! The room was spacious,very clean and modern, and looked newly furnished. Had two sinks, a fridge, hair dryer, and towels (which were changed daily). The best part about this place has to be the location. A two minute stroll... More

I never even ended up staying at this hotel because the staff was so incredibly rude. I called them because I needed to change my reservation to add a couple of days. Seemed easy enough. As I tried to explain to the woman on the phone what I needed she kept sighing as if I was annoying her. She then... More

Hotel is in a great location and is a cheaper option to neighbouring hotels. Rooms are a little unusual but beds are comfortable. Nonetheless, when checking in my girlfriend and I were not made to feel welcome by the hotel staff and we were quite relieved to check out.

The Seaview Hotel is kind of like the old style hotel that your parents used to take you to on school holidays! It's surrounded by newer stylish hotels but I don't think we would have wanted to stay anywhere else. The location is absolutely spot on! About three minutes walk to the beach and pier, and about five minutes to... More

This place was great! Clean spacious rooms, great location and super nice folks running the place. We enjoyed being in walking distance to the beach and local restaurants. The hotel is also just a few blocks from the Pier. Id stay here again for certain. Perfect SoCal beach getaway!

Impressed by this motel. Fabulous location, close to buses and a short walk to muscle beach and the main shops/dining. Decent sized rooms with plenty of space (two queen beds). Helpful staff who gave us great tips for Santa Monica dining.

Seaview hotel doesn't look so much on the outside but you should never judge the book by the cover! The location is great and there is a small, well managed courtyard with a terrace facing the beach. The lady in charge is very professional and kind and there is a man that runs all the practical things in a great... More

The Seaview Hotel's fantastic location, coupled with it's very low price, made up for an awful lot of problems. Our room was located right on Ocean Blvd. so the noise was deafening (I get the feeling even rooms away from the street will still suffer as badly), the air conditioning packed up sometime in the mid-50s (I would guess), the...
