This is now my 4th business trip here within a month, so I must like the Ocean View! The rooms - newly refurbished in cool blues and white - are immaculate, beds and bedding are of high quality and very comfortable. The staff (especially a warm, extremely helpful receptionist named Joy) is friendly and gracious. The location is central to... More

It's nice to know that when you leave home to go on vacation where you stay will still give you that warm feeling, just like being at home does. And that's exactly what you get with the Ocean View Hotel. This is not my first stay here, but is my first vacation stay here and I am glad I made... More

This is a great little hotel, with a wonderful location within a stone's throw of the Santa Monica Peer and the beach. The rooms are very well situated, with lots of space in between and lots of privacy on entry and exit. Note that double beds are truly double, not queen size, but the room was spacious enough for 3... More

Very nice trendy boutique hotel in an excellent location. Across the street from the pier. Next to the promenade. Staff friendly and helpful. Beds extremely comfortable. And for Santa Monica, reasonably priced. Would stay again and already recommended to a friend.

The hotel is immaculate and has been completely refurbished recently. Not all rooms have ocean views and I had one that faced a parking structure. The location is very close to the pier and many restaurants. While the hotel is very clean and new I didn't think it was a good value. No real amenities and the front desk staff's... More

My rating is based on a advanced-purchase special offer, which was a considerable saving on the current rack rate. At current rates, it would get 3-stars only, as it seems over-priced. Hotel has been refurbished recently and the room was clean and comfortable with free Wi-Fi and good bathroom facilities. I had a (cheaper) room at the back of the... More

There are many smallish hotels in Santa Monica on Ocean Avenue. How to choose? Ocean View is not as expensive as some, but it's attractive, with a wonderful & dedicated staff. It's near everything - beach on one side, 3rd St. Mall on other. It has Aveda products. I got a small balcony, overlooking the parking area - but plantings... More

Joy and Elizabeth at the front desk were awesome. They were very accommodating to my needs. I am from Boston and this was my first stay.

We got this hotel at the last minute with the help of a travel agent. She said the hotel had been remodeled. It looked very updated and had great pillows, bed linens, and a wonderful shower. The front desk lady was nice and advised us on a wonderful restaurant. They had a bowl of green apples on the reception bar,... More

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.
