My husband and I travel to Santa Monica, CA about once a year for the last 5 years. We have never stayed in the same hotel twice. I'm always looking for the best bang for my buck in the best location and I've been refining my process every year. This year we stayed at the newly renovated Ocean View Hotel... More

I came here for a mini get away a few days after my birthday with my significant other. The hotel location is excellent. Right on the beach. Our room was on the 3rd floor and had an excellent ocean view. The hotel staff and manager, Michael were all very nice. They even provided us early check in since we drove... More

We stayed for 3 nights recently and found the place to be very comfortable, well maintained with staff who were very helpful and polite, they had good knowledge of the area and locations to go and see. Only drawback was the empty bottles being poured into bins late at night from the bar next door.

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.

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.
