Rooms are nice, modern and clean. The location of this place is amazing. The owner was so helpful with a wealth of knowledge about the area he really helped us out with recommendations of where to eat with the kids. Will go back and stay here again

We'd arrived on a morning flight into LA from Australia. We were looking for a cheap hotel to stay the night at Venice Beach or Santa Monica. We walked the boulevard and dropped into a few places. The prices were blowing me away a bit. We stumbled on this place. Cheapest in the area. Was clean and did the job....

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay at the Seaview. Our room was very clean and service was friendly. The weather was terrible and we arrived much later than planned. When I called from the airport, we were given a helpful alternative to the interstate and avoided worse traffic. We had a lot of dining options within walking distance and...

I'd like to start out by saying the rooms are fine, large and even have small kitchens (which was a surprise), however the service and appearance of the front office is absolutely appalling. When I first arrived, nobody was in the office to check me in. A while later a woman runs up from behind me and lets me in....

After reading the widely diverging reviews of this place on here I decided that if it was as bad as some made it out to be it would have been out of business years ago. It wasn't. The welcome from Rosa was warm and friendly and my room (number 4) was spacious, clean and well equipped with refrigerator, flat screen...

Yes, I read the reviews about the unfriendly staff and the limited parking, but the price was so good I couldn't pass it up. I was determined to "make nice" with the woman behind that messy desk, and it worked. She was full of funny conversation and good tips about the area. Limited parking? We didn't have any issues at...

The location is fantastic 1 block from the beach.... 1.5 blocks from the pier. Right near the shopping mall. The exterior is a little dated and the rooms have clearly been reno'd (on a budget) recently to spruce them up. The bed is comfy, the rooms are all laid out different mine had a little bathroom, kitchen bench with a...

The room and sheets are clean but this hotel lacks many basics. They only provide you with 2 small bath towels. No hand towel or face towels. The shower floor is very old and stained. I decided to wear thongs (flip flops) while I showered as I couldn't decide if it was just old or dirty. There is no drinking...

In contrary to the previous review the woman behind the desk was extremely friendly & extremely helpful during our stay 14th -16th November, rooms are nice modern with a good selection of tv channels and on the the plus side a decent fridge.

Check in was quick however the women was incredibly unfriendly. It is a motel style with doors on the outside and no lift. The door didn't lock properly which worried us, but we propped our cases against it when we were inside at night. Now for the real review. The room seemed OK on first glance. However, the VERY thin...

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.
