From the moment we rolled up to this beautiful boutique hotel on Ocean Ave, RIGHT ACROSS from the beach, we were treated like royalty. Jaime greeted us, and cheerfully brought us to the front desk to meet Melody. Melody made sure we were happy with our room: WE WERE! It was fabulous, clean, modern, spacious and roomy. After slipping into our swimsuits we headed down to the pool, where we met Frankie. He was amazing as well. Sitting in a stunning heated pool sipping cocktails was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Later Jessica and Melody hosted us on the Sunset Terrance with cocktails (do you see a pattern?!) and an amazing lounge-y playlist. Watching the beach scene from that lovely space was perfection. Food and drinks from room service sitting in our gorgeous room, with the doors open and the cool breeze floating was one of our nights. In a nutshell, I can’t rave about this amazing hotel enough. Jaime, Melody, Frankie and Jessica (and all the rest of the amazing staff), made our stay 110% perfection. We will DEFINITELY be back again. Thank you Team!!

Overall this hotel is GOOD, and probably one of the best choices in Santa Monica. This is a boutique hotel and feels it in every part of the way (good and bad). PROS + Location is about 10 minute walk from restaurant/shopping area and 10 min to get to the beach boardwalk. Both just close yet far enough from the action. Santa Monica is homeless haven - so expect that as soon as you cross the street and around majority of the neighborhood. + Property and Rooms and fully remodeled with great/quality upgrades. Rooms are spacious and kept very clean. Decor gets a 10/10 + Staff is outstanding. It appears that a lot of staff do a lot of jobs and step in wherever necessary. Very welcoming / friendly all around. + Heated pool on site CONS - For all the space that the rooms have, the space is not used very well. Large furniture takes up most the living space. There are no kitchenettes aside from the largest of rooms on the properties. There is no in room coffee maker. The only mini fridge in the room is very small, and only holds the beverages you can buy (no room for personal stuff). Coffeemaker is available upon request. With a little bit more though, the rooms could of been more travel-friendly - There are party-ers passing through this hotel on the weekend so if you are lucky enough to be in a room next to them, dont' count on too much sleep - Just be aware that there is a resort fee here ($50/night) and valet fee ($50/night) - The 1 restaurant on site is so - so with a very limited menu both breakfast / dinner. Luckily there are some of the top/most trending restaurants short walk or doordash away, so you wont go hungry. I would overall recommend staying here if you are considering the santa monica area.

Dear Goxplore999, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I'm so glad you enjoyed the service, however I'm very sorry to hear that you were bothered by noise during your stay. I do believe you were here when we had a few large groups in house. We are of course a very family and group friendly hotel, but you were here during an especially hectic time. It is my sincere hope that you will consider returning to the hotel so we can show you a better experience. Sincerely, Avante A, Hotel Assistant Manager

Needed a change of scenery and Oceana was a perfect staycation break. Great service, incredibly clean, and location was perfect — far enough from the busyness or the pier and promenade, but close enough to walk to it. Understandably, food service was closed by 1:30p due to restricted capacity, but can easily order things for delivery. Would definitely stay there again.

Dear DreiPaul, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our location. I like to think we are in the sweet spot of Santa Monica. Far enough away from the noise of the pier, but close enough for some fun on a whim. We hope you will come back and visit us soon. Warm regards, Avante A, Hotel Assistant Manager

We had a corner, ocean view room. The staff was very helpful and always very courteous. We love this hotel and it is the best location right opposite from Palisades Park. It's quiet, good access to the beach, great for walking and running. Walking distance to Montana Ave shopping and the 3rd St. mall.
