The only great feature of this hotel is the location, its right near the action which is awesome. Everything else was really disappointing - the hotel was going through construction when we arrived and we had workmen yelling and playing music on our balcony a few mornings, which isn't great when you are on a holiday. We also couldn't check... More

My wife and I stayed here on the labour day weekend this year. We chose the hotel for the price and location both of wich were excellant in my opinon. You will be walking distance to all the waterfront has to offer not to mention all the shops and ammenties of 3rd ave. When we arrived we were greeted by... More

I was there in the midst of renovations. The rooms were done and nice--smallish but nice....but the doors opened out into the corridor (and didn't close automatically) so that was weird. The lobby was small and had nothing. No bar, no coffee service, no papers. Nothing. The parking staff was VERY nice and helpful. Front desk staff were uniformly cold... More

Based upon reviews that must have been written before this hotel's recent renovation, I was hesitant to stay here. However, the OLD reviews are not worth reading. This hotel has been completely renovated including new carpeting, furniture, wall coverings, Samsung flatscreens, etc. Ditto for the bathrooms with ceramic tile, new vanities, overhead rain showers with glass enclosures. The hotel truly... More

Very nice, clean hotel in a great area of Santa Monica. Staff was very nice & helpful. Has off street public parking which is a must in this area with NO parking available. Room was clean & beds were comfortable. Pillows too! Reception area is still undergoing renovation.

What I like mosty was the view and hotel location. Lack of restaurant doesn't support the stay, but there are many options around the hotel. Rooms are convenient with reasonable size of balcony. Helpful front desk.

Stayed for two nights. paid extra for Ocean View rooms, which had a great view - worth it... Reception was being updated at the time (probably finished by now) but didn't really matter as only recently slept in hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful Location is best bit - steps to Santa Monica Pier, bus trolley stops and 3rd... More

Great small hotel. Stayed in a refurbished room, and was absolutely gorgeous. Recommend an Ocean View room to take in the views of the water & Santa Monica Pier. Hotel's location is very close to the Pier, and an easy walk around town, (close toThird Street Promenade).

The Ocean View Hotel is in a fantastic location. 5 minutes walk to Santa Monica Pier and the sandy beach. 5 minutes walk to the restaurants and shops of third street promenade. Clean rooms, serviced daily with friendly staff. Public busses and tourist busses are right around the corner. Great location. I would stay here again.
