This motel isnt the bees knees, but it is the best value for how much your paying. Its the only hotel around 60$ a night thats actually anywhere near walking distance to a beach. I stayed at 2 other hotels while in los angelas and this one was by far the best deal considering your only 5 minute hop skip and a jump from seal beach/ long beach area. If your looking for something nicer than pay more money and go else where, but if your looking to be close to the surf and decent shops this place is great. Little disapointed that they accused us before we even checked in for being rowdy young people... my boyfriend had to work at 4 am every morning so we were far from being the partying type. plus they over charged me each night i stayed longer but when i told them that they said they would refund me. Im staying another night so hopefully they stand by that. looks like they work hard and do a pretty good job. could use a little better customer service but there was an obvious language barrier so i cant really complain they are trying hard and thats what counts especially for how cheap it is.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Granted, we were staying on a Saturday night, in August, so the price was more than I would have liked to pay, but I have to say I was quite disappointed with the trip. I blame Expedia for not letting me know that there is only one bed (queen or king) in the room, ESPECIALLY after telling the agent we were bringing our 5-yr-old grandson. We did not find out until arrival about the sleeping arrangements.

Kudos are given to the staff member who tried very hard to help us out, and although we agreed to it then, it was not truly acceptable. We had arrived early, our king-sized room was not ready. We asked if there was someplace to change so we could head to the beach, and then come back later for the room. There was no place to do that, but she could give us a queen-sized at that time. When asked where would the little one sleep, she said she could arrange for extra blankets to make a bed on the floor (they had no roller-beds). While we didn't like that idea, our grandson thought of it as an adventure, so we went with it.

Our microwave was sitting on a chair in the corner, making it difficult to use as there was no space on the dresser to put it - there was already a TV and fridge on it. The room was small, and a "handicap" one as well, so the bathroom door opened outwards, making the space even smaller. The door needed to be propped open as it kept closing on us.

There was no breakfast, which we had noted when booking, but even the coffee didn't have all the condiments needed (I do not drink mine black). Also, no pool, but that was okay with us.....we wanted the beach.

The Pros: close enough to beach to walk, great restaurant just down a few blocks (Don the Beachcomber).

Not sure if I'd stay there again - - maybe if a lower price, for a room upstairs (ours was first floor, by the elevators, and flies were swarming around, coming into the room whenever the door opened). Oh, and the guy next door asked to use our bathroom as his was not working. Thank goodness we were ready to check out at the time, as was he!

What's not to like-very nice staff and owners, clean room, comfy bed, fabuous shower, micro wave and fridge.... but most important! less then 5 min walk to beautiful beach... 2 doors down from Don The Beachcomber for 'Reggae For A Reason Sunday's', minutes from Harbor House Cafe for great, cheap and healthy eats and lot's of other dining choices,beach sky light and some view, quiet at night...but for us it was all about the beach, The Beachcomber, the great rates, not having to drive during stay and feeling safe and comfortable while enjoying. We'll be back.

A bit noisy from the heavy road traffic but that settles down later in the evening when you want to sleep. The beds were super comfortable and the room was really clean.

OceanView motel is my new favorite motel. Its nestled in a very cool beach community and is run by a very nice family. Like BD said its surounded by all kinds of great resturants. you can walk 10 mins to the harbor for kayaking or stand up paddle surfing, or just walk across the street to lounge and play in the sand. the rooms were very comfortable and they all have flat screen tv's,microwaves and a mini fridge. Id be hard pressed to find a hotel as nice and for such great value.
