My son and I recently spent 10 days at the Seaview Hotel. The hotel/motel is very close to the beach and the Santa Monica pier. The rooms are basic. We stayed in room 10 which was on the 2nd floor, front of the property on ocean avenue. We had a king bed, 2 small sitting chairs, a small kitchenette. The... More

My friends and I, three of us total, booked a trip to California for 6 days last year and chose to stay here at the Seaview. Our experience was only positive. Jeff greeted us at the office and gave us an exhaustive rundown of the food and shopping in the neighborhood that we could take advantage of during out stay.... More

Hotel was in a great spot with only 5 min walk to Santa Monica Pier. The guy that ran the hotel was fantastic, providing us with places to eat and see. The room was nice however the bathroom was quite old and needs a bit of work and the walls were quite thin so we could hear the foot steps... More

We will stay here again. It's clean and charming, small but not too small. We love the close proximity to Santa Monica Pier. And Cora’s Coffee Shoppe, right next door, has wonderful food. I loved the long counter with the second sink: it's like they understand travelers! Some reviews mentioned the bathroom window opening to the street, and we got... More

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at the Seaview Hotel. The location couldn't have been better - right near the beach, Santa Monica pier, and just a short walk to the 3rd St Promenade. While the rooms are pretty basic they have everything you need, including reliable free WiFi, TV, hairdryer, a small kitchenette and a very comfortable... More

I was in Santa Monica on my own for 4 days and was feeling quite nervous about staying at Seaview.....BUT I could not have had a better experience. Location & affordability were my key priorities.....and it certainly delivered with 'Muscle Beach' & Santa Monica pier being my 'backyard', easy 5min walk to restaurants, third st promenade. Bonus was my comfy... More

I stayed here for one night while on a road trip northwards. I mainly chose it as it was one of the cheaper places in Santa Monica but still close to many places. I'm glad I did. The motel check in guy was really friendly. The room was large and the bed extremely comfy. It also had a fridge which... More

We enjoyed our stay here. It’s all about location and you can’t beat that for the price here. Rooms are clean but lack some things that would make life easier – not enough hanging space in our room, or shelving in the bathroom. All rooms are different though, so you may have better luck, and if you’re only there for... More

Clean rooms, friendly, helpful staff. Perfect location to explore and discover Santa Monica. All within walking distance. If you want luxury with luxury prices this is not the place for you. My daughter and I stayed here 4 nights and loved this place. Cozy and comfortable place to rest up and refresh after sightseeing. Will definitely return to this hotel.... More

Stayed here for a night last week and it was really excellent. Rooms are spotlessly clean. Very close to beach, pier and 3rd ave. Staff were extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again if the opportunity arises.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
