The Seaview is a great little place. Each room has its own character and furnishings. Some rooms have a kitchenette which could really save a lot of money over a longer Santa Monica stay. The place is less than half most of the other hotels along Ocean Ave and is only 1 block from the beach, not far from Santa Monica Pier, etc. Friendly front desk, great service, clean. NOISY, with lots of urban noise from Ocean Ave especially (and, currently, an epic construction project going on right across the street) so if you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs. Also, if you like in-room coffee, bring your own coffee pot. Other amenities missing: drinking cups, shampoo, soap (there is soap, but it wasn't very good). The outside deck is a great place to sit and hang out. Enjoy the amazing savings of this place, surrounded by hotels with rooms for $450 and up. If you are going to Santa Monica to get out to the beach, walk around the town, drive into LA and generally be active, this is a great place to stay.
