The is a old style motor lodge but it has been remodeled inside. I find the location wonderful if staying in Santa Monica. Perfect location close to... More

We booked 2 nights at the Ocean Lodge Hotel and on the date of our arrival were informed that they were canceling our booking because we planned to arrive after 10 pm. Even though we had already paid for the room and were on our way there for the weekend, the woman told me they were canceling it so someone... More

Although the location is great, we didn't sleep a wink. We were in room 107 basically on the road. The doors are only thin (basically internal doors) and the walls paper thin. We were constantly woken by traffic and people screaming on the street, the people above us walking around and flushing their toilet, with the floor creaking and the... More

The location is great. The room is tiny and basic, but expensive. Is really a motel. Stairs only to second floor. We got the two bedroom and basically was just enough room for the beds. Felt claustrophobic. Limited parking, very tight and charge $22 a night. No amenities. Only a bed, tv and small fridge.

I did not like this hotel, we stayed one night and left! the air conditioner was loud and the condensation leaked water all over the floor and dripped loudly at night, no ac in bedroom #2. They tried to charge more money, scammed us twice. The woman in the office sent my daughter back to fill out paperwork and then... More

It was a quick walk to the boardwalk, pier, and beach. Parking is very tight at the hotel, but there is a more spacious paid parking spot directly adjacent. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Beds were comfortable.

I stayed here Once. Good location as its across the street from the Pier/ beach which I liked. I enjoyed my first stay so months later decided to book another room. Turns out they only have one nicer looking room which I was surprised to find out. They have a limited number of parking spaces

If there were a minus button, that's what this place would receive. Therefore, I will give it the lowest possible rating. I am not a high maintenance person but when you spend close to $500 for two nights, certain amenities are expected. I checked in at 3:00 pm on 04/30/2016, at the advertised time. Their lobby was approximately 6'x12'. Off... More

Great location to Santa Monica Pier and shopping promenade etc., can walk to all areas easily with plenty of restaurants nearby. Rooms typical to age of property, very clean and staff very helpful with any requests we had during our stay of 3 nights.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
