    Lovely ocean facing rooms right opposite the Santa Monica pier. Street was bit noisy but we were there for the 4th July. The price was reasonable. The staff were friendly and the location was great, near restaurants, shopping and the beach

    My husband and I stayed at the Ocean View Hotel for four nights. The location can't be beat - a few minutes walk from the Promenade and Pier. The service was great. We especially enjoyed the valet staff who were attentive and funny. We took our bikes with us and the valet staff patiently stored our bikes in and took... More

    My daughter and I spent two nights here on our way home from Europe to Auckland. The hotel is in an excellent location, 5 minutes walk from Santa Monica pier. It is a $40 cab ride from LAX so a great option for a stopover . The hotel staff were exceptional, going out of their way to make us welcome.... More

    Skip the third party vendors and book directly with the hotel. Expedia totally screwed up my reservation, but Ed at the front desk was terrific. Very nice as I explained the situation, and was quick to assure me I did indeed have a room. Quickly took care of getting us checked in, and followed up later on to see if... More

    Beautiful hotel just steps away from the pier. Quiet hotel, parking is easy. Easy walk to many restaurants, beach and 3rd st promenade. Had a problem with checking in and the staff were very helpful and friendly! Rooms were very nice, even the not "ocean view" side!

    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.
