I was unsure about booking this hotel - we had decided to stay in Santa Monica but there were other options away from the front that were considerably less expensive. Im glad my heart overruled my wallet as I honestly couldnt fault it. All of the staff without exception were extremely friendly and welcoming, the hotel is very clean and... More

Most of the hotels in this price range or higher are a good location to everything. However, Ocean View, Georgian and Shores hotels are the closest to 3rd St shopping and the better restaurants while still overlooking the water. The other 2 hotels mentioned have bars that you can grab a drink and take to your room, Ocean View does... More

Beautiful clean rooms, very modern. Walking distance to all Santa Monica attractions. Would choose sea view room if we returned. Courtyard rooms overlook parking lot and strong smell of car fumes on balcony. Staff very helpful and lots of restaurants nearby.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a courtyard view. This meant we looked down onto the valet parking, or into the guest rooms across the courtyard from us, in essence no view. However, the rooms were clean and the bathroom was a good size. No luxuries in room, unless you count a Keurig coffee maker as one. Included... More

This hotel is located right across the street from the Santa Monica Pier and is close to the 3rd Street Promenade so has a fabulous location with world class shopping, dining and tourism. The hotel is nicely decorated and has a boutique feel to the lobby area. The parking attendant was incredibly helpful and nice! Our room was not ready... More

We stayed in an Ocean View Room w Balcony on the top floor, had an amazing view, literally right across from the Santa Monica Beach & Pier. We stayed during a busy weekend, & could hardly hear outside noise, even with the shutters left open. The front desk & valet are very friendly. Our room was clean, spacious, & cute.... More

We loved the lobby...the rooms Valet parking works great here and reasonable. The King/balcony/view room is a must for all couples. This is not unique to this hotel but Ocean Ave. can be noisy. 1st night the power was cut so the windows were open. 2nd night the concert on the peer ended so it was noisy. None of this... More

A warm and friendly welcome on arrival and every other time we passed reception. Recently refurbished room very comfortable and clean. Had a good night's sleep in the bed - although pillows a bit too soft for me. Appreciated the walk in shower. A bit noisy in the morning from the cleaning staff in the corridor and a bit of... More

We had an ocean view room and balcony for 4 nights in June. It was fabulous, yes a bit noisy but worth it for the view and atmosphere of the area. Superb spot for walking to third street, the pier and Venice beach. The room was spotless, the service from the staff was great, everyone was very helpful and friendly,... 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.
