“If that what you need”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Got to St. Monica with no reservation, looked around for a moderate priced hotel, we found it.
Location is perfect just on the shore, we loved the all white room. And provided us wifi service. The staff was friendly and the check out was easy. parking space available for a fee.

Perfectly located, clean and comfortable. Yes some things could use improvement like updating the bathrooms but if you are satisfied with a clean comfortable place at a good price...this is it! The beds are super comfy and have duvets. There is a fridge stocked with drinks at a cost and a basket filled with snacks also at a cost. Coffee maker, I home dock alarm clock and flat screen tv. No pool but a nice little area to catch some rays on a lounge.

We stayed for a single evening at the Bayside Hotel in April 2013. The hotel is located very close to the beach however the majority of the rooms actually face inwards to the back of an apartment block so you do not get a chance to take advantage of the view from your room.

The rooms themselves were very and serviceable if not a little cramped feeling.

We did feel that the pricing for this hotel was a little expensive for what you got in the room, however i suspect you are paying for being so close to the beach front.

I would highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Santa Monica. The staff is helpful. They took care of you car and parking lot. The room was really pretty, on the second floor with sea view. You have frozen pizza in the fridge in case you are starving from you filght when you arrive :)
You can rent bike. The surf beach is just in front of the hotel.
Dolphins are swimming in front of the surfeurs!
You can find lost of places for breakfast, lunch and diner. Main street has great cafes.
We went to Blueplate and Oysterette restaurant for diner. Osyters and fishes were really good, we were seating next to Gwyneth Paltrow!
Try the parfait or the lemon tart.
Overall great stay.

We had a great stay. The hotel in located in front of Santa Monica Beach and walking distance to the Promenade and various cafés and design stores at Main St.
The service is basic, there is no breakfast, and the reception is basic too, but the room is comfortable and clean.

If you are looking for a hotel under USD 150, this is a great choice. Just expect a comfortable and clean room and a nice location, Santa Monica will do the rest!

This hotel was just up re hill from the beach (min walk) amazing views .. Walking distance to the shops and night life (about a 7-10 min walk ish) perfectly fine in the day light a little sketchy at night but the actual hotel is not sketchy at all. One thing to mention is the shower head is extremely low so if your above 5'2" you'll probably be a little uncomfortable, I'm 5'1" so I was just fine. Also parking was $17 per day which I thought was a little pricy but could very well be the norm in this area. Lastly cell phone service is almost non existent in the rooms. All in all satisfied with the place!

We spent the last night night of a 3 week US holiday at the Bayside. We loved the hotel and certainly had no intention of paying the exorbitant rates on most of the other Santa Monica beachside hotels. Sure the hotel is of an older style but being just one street back from the beach is a major plus and the ocean view rooms all have great views. The rooms were clean, light and very comfortable. Service from reception was very helpful and friendly. We'd have no hesitation in staying here again.
