This was our second visit to the Ocean View Hotel. The first trip was during their remodel so this time the place definitely looked and felt a lot nicer and cleaner. We showed up early and put our name in for an early check-in. The woman at the desk said she would call us as soon as our room was... More

We checked into this fantastic location near the Santa Monica pier but we're bummed that the room had no drawers to put our clothes in. We are staying here for 7 days so living out of our suitcase is a bit much

It was my first time to be at Oceanview Hotel and I must say, they are one of the best remodelled hotel near the harbour. Short walk to the Harbor, restaurants, shopping places, theatre, beach, etc. You don't have to worry about where to go because this hotel is very accessible to everything. Hotel rooms and common area like the... More

Was here just one night for business. My second time here. Very nicely updated older hotel. Nicely priced, great friendly service, perfect location right near the Santa Monica Pier. Room was like what you would Find in a luxury hotel. Large double shower head glass Doored bathroom. Modern clean decor. And was very inexpensive.

We stayed for two nights recently after a conference at the Hilton Anaheim. Service was great. Speedy check in, friendly staff, really comfortable beds, large shower and bathroom. Room was basic, but exceptionally clean and quiet. Coffee was US style and not flash, but cannot fault accomodation otherwise. Across the road from beach and Santa Monica pier, really nice restaurants,... More

The hotel was exceptionally clean, the parking access was great, Lobby easy to get around in. The staff were very friendly and the room was very comfortable. Two minute walk to the Santa Monica Pier, plenty of places to eat within a block. Definitely a place I'll remember for my next trip to LA

This hotel is situated in a prime location right in front of Santa Monica pier. Clean, tidy and well presented rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. It's a shame they don't have dining services but there is plenty nearby to satisfy any needs. Great stay in Santa Monica!

We enjoyed the bright, inviting and modern facility at Ocean View Hotel. The staff was attentive and friendly. Easy access to the Pier and the Santa Monica Mall. The location can't be beat! We expect to return.

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.
