Cute little 70-80's style beach side motel. Awesome value for money. LOCATION.LOCATION.LOCATION, ten minute walk each way to catch the hop on hop off bus. Staff friendly, welcoming and helpful. No security. The window next to our door didn't lock and didn't have a broom handle to lock it like I noticed other rooms had as I walked past. The... More

Travelling solo I really wanted to have a place close to everything with a great casual beachy vibe, Seaview was perfect! Walking distance to the beach, pier, third street promenade, Santa Monica Place, everything you could want. Really easy walk in to Venice beach too which is a must. I stayed in an upgraded room which was awesome, great big... More

Really enjoyed my stay at the Seaview Hotel. The price and location are excellent. The room was nice, I really liked that it had tiles and not carpet and the bed was comfortable. Everyone there was very welcoming and helpfull. Perfect for a stay by the beach on a budget.

The hotel is clean and rooms are large with a kitchenette, one bar of soap , no shampoo, and two small towels. It is in a great location, walking distance to the pier and Santa Monica restaurants, but very loud, it is right on Ocean Ave. and there is lots of car and foot traffic right outside the window.

I agonized over the choice of LA hotel about 10x more than usual. The prices are insane, and the reviews of the cheaper hotels often read like excerpts from a horror novel. I have stayed in LA before, near LAX, and near Hollywood. But this time I really wanted to be by the beach, and since we don't have a... More

Located just steps from the beach- comfy bed, large tv. Kitchenette in room- we didn't use. Beautiful courtyard! Short walking distance to Santa Monica Pier- coffee house next door and 4 star restaurants less than a block away. Great jerk chicken just down the a few door down. Couldn't have been happier with our entire stay! Other reviews commented that... More

First and foremost the location of this hotel is outstanding. Not even a block from the beach front and Santa Monica Pier, a short walk from 3rd St Promenade and close to various shops & restaurants. The rooms are basic - a bed, dressers, closet space, a bathroom and kitchen area. The bedroom is spacious nevertheless. Considering the location of... More

Travelling with a family of 4 (two kids 9,11) I always look to be walking distance from all the hot spots, I want to be safe and I want my room to be clean and somewhere I want to come back to after a big day. Sometime this is hard on a budget but WOW!! I found this little gem.... More

We stayed here in summer and found it to be very hot. Noisy hotel can here the outside traffic and people. Very small bathroom. Room was clean and comfortable bed. But the no air conditioning was a killer for me. I would not recommend this hotel

Five star recommendation for sure! It was a blessing that we found this cute little hotel. My favorite part was the vegetation and flowers everywhere. It was so quaint and pretty. It is steps away from the beach and Santa Monica Pier, as well as the main street to walk down. Lots of restaurants to choose from and stores. The... More

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.
