Great spot in Santa Monica opposite the pier and close to the shopping promenade, small hotel which has been tastefully renovated, staff were very helpful. A bit noisy due to construction work nearby. Good size rooms with comfy beds. Would recommend this one.

Stayed for 1 night on a Friday in September 2014. The price prior to arrival matched the price at checkout - there were no hidden fees, but I did pay the extra $33 for parking which was advertised online. The rooms looked exactly as they did on various websites including the hotel's site. Positives: -Newly remodeled rooms with fresh paint,... More

I've been attempting to make contact with this hotel over a period of a few weeks without response. We are a group of 16 people wishing to stay in Santa Monica next July and this hotel does not respond to emails, phone calls or direct contact through their website. The manager Pablo Sanchez who I believe is in charge of... More

In order to be a GREAT hotel, you must have extrodnary employees, and Ocean view has MANY ! There are four EXPERTS at Reception, Ed, Lenny,... More

If you are looking at the Ocean View because its rates compare favorably to other nearby hotels, then rest assured that the better price does not mean your taking a major step down in quality or amenities. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable to be in. The bathroom and shower were large, modern and clean. The location is outstanding.... More

This was our third stay at the hotel and our prior stays were perfectly satisfactory, however, on arrival back home (in New Zealand) this time, we discovered extra charges from the hotel on our credit card and despite two emails to them they never bothered to respond and we have had to involve our bank before they sent any information...

Our room was nice, however when we arrived the front desk staff had attitude right from the beginning. They were aloof and rude. The hotel was being painted outside and they covered our windows up and took away our deck furniture. We complained and they had to come up and see it for themselves. Only then did they say they...
