Not all of the rooms have an ocean view and the price is somewhat higher for a room with an ocean view. It is really nice to have your own balcony with chairs and a small table to take in the sights. You are a short walk to the beach and the pier from the hotel. Hotel, Ocean Ave. and... More

This was my second time staying at this hotel and it was another great experience. The staff is very kind and attentive. Elizabeth at the front desk was very helpful with my accommodations. The rooms and premises are all very clean. I will be staying there again.

We enjoyed a lovely, replacing few days in Santa Monica. This hotel is located almost opposite the pier on Ocean Avenue. Varied bars and restaurants are very close by as are lots of big brand shops on 3rd Avenue. We stayed in room 437. It is a quiet, end of corridor room with no views. It was quiet but the... More

Last minute reservation and I was happy the hotel could accommodate me. Great view from my room, very cozy bed and quite. I was impressed how quite it was for being so close to the road. You will enjoy the rooms and staff. Kudos to housekeeping staff as they were so friendly and everyone greeted you. From the valet, front... More

Clean tidy hotel with adequate sized rooms. Disappointed not to have complimentary tea and coffee in the room especially as what was on offer was over priced and as there is no restaurant on site the hotel have a captive customer. Staff were friendly and helpful with advice on how to get about and where to go. We only stayed... More

The room is beautiful, the hotel is beautiful. We checked in a few minutes early and they valet your car for you....for $33. I knew that ahead of time so it wasn't a shock, but still, it is outrageous. I suppose it makes sense for the area though. For $300 a night in winter, I was disappointed to get a... More

We stayed here four nights in an ocean view room. There was nothing to complain about during our stay. The room was spacious for the three of us and very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. The location is perfect with numerous restaurants, bars, stores, and tourist attractions within easy walking distance. The front desk people we dealt with are... More

Stayed 3 nights enroute to OZ and it's very convenient for bars, restaurants, shops and beach. Easy cycle to Venice Beach and bus to Getty Centre, stunning! Spacious comfy room with balcony and view of Sant Monica pier. Only downside is the windows haven't been refurbed along with the hotel and there is a road between it and the beach.... More

We had a fabulous stay at this hotel. The receptionist (Joy) was exceptionally helpful and did everything she could to make our check in experience as straightforward as possible. The rooms were beautifully appointed, clean, modern and very comfortable. Fabulous beds and great quality sheets, we slept really well. The bathroom was immaculately clean and the shower was powerful and... More

Stayed at this hotel this past weekend and had a great time. From check-in to check-out, the experience was flawless. Friendly front desk team, the person who checked us in (forgot his name, Greg?) was efficient and very friendly. Our room on the 4th floor didn't have a view of the ocean (we did not book that type of room)... 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.
