Ocean View Hotel or Wyndham Santa Monica at the Pier

Hello,

Myself and three other adults will be traveling to Santa Monica for 2 nights in October and are trying to get a hotel booked.. Based on our budget I have narrowed it down to Ocean View Hotel or Santa Monica at the Pier. We are looking to be a short walking distance from the Pier and some nice restaraunts. Can someone advise me which of these hotels are nicer? better location? or maybe a different hotel in the same price range of about 200- 250 per night?

Thanks so much for any help!

The Wyndham recently took over the Holiday Inn and no renovations yet, but are planned. Ocean View Hotel is not ideal, but the location is great. Did you read all the recent reviews? Also look into the Palihouse which is offering great rates in October and opens in June. Look into The Shore Hotel, too.

It is something to book now, however, because October gets very busy with various conventions.

Be advised that the previous post is self-promotion - in an earlier post this person identified themselves as working for the Ocean View hotel, so take their recommendation with a grain of salt.

I happen to be staying at the Wyndham now and can tell you that the location can't be beat. They've upgraded a little, but not a lot, but it is still a far better hotel than ocean view. Try to get a room away from the freeway.

The Shore Hotel is sometimes offered on Hotwire.com at a discount. Look for the unnamed 4-star hotel in Santa Monica-Marina del Rey-Venice with the following amenities:

Oceanfront Property

Pool(s)

High-Speed Internet Access

Golf Nearby

Tennis Nearby

Good luck!
