Alright here is the thing, this is probably my favourite Hotel "motel" style i have been in southern california, overall the rooms are renovated and offer basically everything, from spacious restroom and docking station. Very nice frigobar and a\c system. The room\garden patio is full of space and chairs to lounge and relax. The position is perfect right in front... More

Basically the same as you get at a Super 8 (sans the free parking), slightly worse than some, but as I say, little bargains to be had in Santa Monica and this place is clean and right on the beach. Service leaves a little to be desired and rooms dated.

You dont stay here for the GLAMOUR. You stay because of the beautiful Santa Monica Beach. Close to 'The Pier' and only $35 for the 20 minuteTaxi ride from the LAX airport straight down Lincoln. Great prices on the rooms ($100 and up) for a Double. More if you have The Beach View. Rooms are simply furnished, but hey -... More

After doing some research, I found this hotel to be one of the best options in the overly expensive Santa Monica. The location is fantastic. It's right across from the beach and there's a convenient store and a good breakfast / coffee shop like a minute away. It is also quite close to the SM Pier and pretty close to... More

Hotel is no better than ok, you are paying for the location, about 10 minute walk into Santa Monica and just up the hill from the beach. Bed was comfy, aircon noisy and maid service almost non existent(bed sheets pulled up) parking is a further $22 per night. Not really worth the money!!

Ok, so Santa Monica is cool and affluent. This probably explains the ridiculously over-priced accommodation in the area. I took way too long researching where to stay in SM and ultimately opted for the Bayside. Main reason for this was that it's located pretty much right on the beach, 10 mins walk from the Pier, 15 mins to 3rd St... More

We were due to stay at another hotel, but at the end of our trip it just seemed so pricey, so we did the quickest hotel search ever and found Bayside. Got check in, took around 20 mins, and we could go into our room straight away! (It was 11.30am). Room was lovely, clean, bright exactly what you could want... More

The Bayside hotel is a cool old-school-style beach hotel. Retro vibe. Nothing fancy, but everything I needed. Very comfortable.The location is hard to beat! I was planning to stay 4 nites & then stay a couple more nites at an old friend's house, but I decided to stay all 6 nites at the Bayside. The California Beach vibe of the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights as a family in one room. We were on the ground floor by the inside courtyard which functioned as an extra living space for us. Felt like a cool retro place to stay... 2 storeys and so close to the beach.... a one minute walk down the hill and you're there. Bathrooms could do... More
