The oceanview hotel appears to be recently renovated. It's very nicely done but there are some things they need to work on. There are nice new showers but nobody's cleaning the grout. Housekeeping made my bed but didn't put the decorative pillows back on, there are no towel bars, there's a coffee maker but it's not near an outlet, and... More

The hotel is fairly basic, but modern/renovated with a flair, and appreciated the rooms, very comfortable beds, clean, open spaces including corridors with open air and bamboo flooring. Immediate access to the bluff and beach was a plus, although somewhat noisy on the week end.

Stayed for 3 nights in late October. The hotel has obviously recently been renovated, and it was spotless. The greeting from the staff of the reception desk was brilliant, and they really did all they could to help during my stay. It is in a great location, with fantastic views out to sea and across the Pier. Good value for... More

Great location, clean and modern. The staff at Ocean view could not do enough to make our stay more comfortable, they were more than willing to assist with any queries and went out of their way to help. I would definitely recommend this hotel. I would also not hesitate to stay there again when visiting Santa Monica.

We stayed here for one night in October. We had the room with 2 double beds (ie. they were tiny!). There was not much space but for night it was fine. Great location, clean, modern bathroom. However the doors and windows need soundproofing as it was quite loud which made it difficult to get a good night's sleep. Onsite parking... More

This is a nicely remodeled and updated find, right across from the SM Pier and maybe the best value on Ocean Ave... The place was spotless inside and out!

Clean, well serviced Hotel right on Ocean Ave nearly directly opposite Santa Monica Pier. Also only 2 blocks west of the awesome shopping & restaurant district.
