Have stayed here many times previously, have since been to their beautiful sister property The Shore. This time we decided to return to The Ocean View and were very happy we did. Obviously it is not as expensive as The Shore, but the whole place has had a nice makeover and we were very impressed. The location is unbeatable in... More

Very overpriced (we paid almost $1000 for 3 nights) but you are paying for the best location merely moments walk from the Santa Monica Pier with great ocean views. Ask for the top floor front room to get the best views. Also there is no free water… for hotel guests or Wi-Fi when we went in January 2015. We were... More

Good hotel, close to everything, the pier is 2 minutes walk, Promenade one block away and plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. A clean and comfortable hotel at a good price. Joy on reception is wonderful and extremely helpful.

The location, accommodations are fine and convenient , the rooms are a little small, and if you book a back room you will hear the trash truck come by early every morning to empty the mass amount of bottles left from the bar next door.. Valet parking is expensive 30.00 dollars a day! My room was not made up one... More

This is my 14th stay here over the last year. My first was before the remodel, and everyone since has been after. I come here for many reasons, but most of all its my new home away from home. From the moment I walk in I am made to feel welcomed and have never once had an issue. Forget the... More

My husband surprised me with a romantic one night get away for my birthday. I have to say that everything was perfect. The staff welcomed us with a warm & friendly welcome. The valet person right away asked us if we needed help with our luggage. The room opened up to a balcony with a gorgeous view of the beach.... More

We spent two nights at the Ocean View Hotel. The front desk staff was pleasant and welcoming. The lobby is very pretty and recently remodeled. We had a "courtyard view" room which was nicely decorated, had a tiny private terrace and didn't have much of a view at all. I'm sure the ocean view rooms were much more enjoyable. That... More

I come to Santa Monica every year to visit a client. I picked the Ocean View this year 'cause the daily room price was cheaper than where I normally stay and it is closer to my clients office. I arrived earlier than I should have on Sunday morning, but Joy did a good job checking me in and getting my... More

The location for my work duties 2nd week November 2014, this was simply perfect! When we booked there was only Ocean View left:-), a bit expensive but worth it. Room and bath clean and well equipped. Staff friendly and responsive. Out of hotel nothing what we needed was more that 10 min walk away. Santa Monica Pier across the street,... 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.
