I mistakenly made the reservation for Seaview instead of the Seashore Motel and will not make that mistake again. It has location going for it and that's about it. You can walk to the beach and it's the SM pier. Our 2nd floor room had a large window that a) didn't lock and b) looked out to the walkway. Instead... More

The location is amazing, it is located just a couple of blocks from the pier. Great value. The room is really good, you have a kitchen (without kitchenware) and a private balcony. No breakfast included. Wifi included. There is not AC, no issue at all about that for October stay.

For around 100 bucks a night, you cant beat it. Friendly service, clean and large updated rooms and short walking distance to the beach and pier. Parking in the alley was tight and hard to find a space but manager was very helpful in finding us a spot. I cant wait to go back!

It's a basic place that could do with a bit of TLC. Fine for a couple of nights stay but wouldn't recommend much longer than that. Good location, only a walk into the centre of SM and the pier. No AC which was okay for an October stay but in full summer might be a problem! Check-in isn't the greatest... More

For $144 for a night, we were 5 seconds from the beach. Ideally located between Venice and Santa Monica beaches makes both walking distance. The hotel room is very clean. Very comfortable bed. Nice flat screen tv. Great wifi. If you're after a great location and aren't too fussed about a fancy room, this is highly recommended :)

Stayed here for 2 nights, the room was clean and had everything I needed, although the bath was more of a shower tray and the shower head came out of the wall at shoulder height (I am 5'7). The location is amazing, just a few minutes walk to the beach and a few more to the pier, muscle beach or... More

For the first time my Trip Advisor friends led me astray. I have no idea what place others are reviewing, but their descriptions do not reflect our experience at Seaview Hotel. My first indication that something was not quite right was when we couldn't enter the office because the door was locked and once the lady inside opened the door... More

Excellent little motel situated about a minutes walk from the beach and about 5mins to Santa Monica pier! The motel was clean and tidy and the room was spacious! The room didn't have an A/C but because of the spaciousness of the room it wasn't needed! Fantastic little place will definitely be going back

Seaview Hotel is a cute hotel, in a traditional building of old California architecture, where it is possible to feel the relax atmosphere of Santa Monica. Excellent located on the main avenue, at 5 minutes walking from the beach and less than 10 minutes walking from the famous Santa Monica Pier.

It is an interesting place but very, very noisy. If they had air conditioning it would help with the noise. Close to beach. Needs a bit of updating and repairs. Due to the heat we had the patio open but no screen so you didn't know if you would be broke into or end up with a creature in your... More
