4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a great stay at the Ocean View Hotel. We spent 3 nights in the corner room (319) which was on the 3rd floor with an awesome view of beautiful Santa Monica. The location cannot be beat. We used the valet service for our car and never needed it until the day we checked out. The rooms are small,... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

perfect location to the beach: just cross the street. Rooms are big enough, but could be a bit bigger. Garage could be in a better shape and there is no restaurant. Which even might be a good thing, as you might try various options of excellent restaurants nearby...

The room (#317) was perfectly appointed, amazing ocean front views, balcony with chairs and table. It was clean and quiet (except for the street noise) which I heard because I kept my window and balcony door open. Small hotel with only four floors. Hardly saw anyone. The staff were there if you needed them otherwise kept to themselves. A very... More

Nice hotel, Nice location, Good valet parking. Very nice reception. Unfortunately there is no breakfast available in the hotel but you do have a coffee and tea maker and there are plenty of nice restaurants in the area.

The location could not be better: This hotel is right on Ocean Avenue between Broadway and Santa Monica Blvd, only steps from the 3rd Street shopping area, the new Santa Monica Mall and Santa Monica Pier. Another advantage is the close proximity to the public parking garages on 2nd street which offer plenty of affordable parking at any time. Also,... 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.
