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.

My friend and I booked this hotel last min. We got a nice room but not overlooking the ocean. Gerald at the front desk was very kind and gave us an ocean view the next day for out second night. The location is perfect. The rooms were very clean and everyone was very nice and helpful at the hotel especially Gerald and Jay. I would stay here agin.

I am sorry to hear what happened. That said, under COVID-19, housekeeping no longer provides service to in house rooms, only upon check out or by special request. Our employees regularly turn in smart phones, jewelry, shoes, electronics, etc... Do you recall who you spoke to at front desk or security? You can reach me at bryanlara@oceanviewsantamonica.com

Thank you Ocean View Hotel for employees as Gerald. Originally we were going to Ventura County, but we thought maybe it's better to go to Santa Monica. We call several places we were on hold or their attitudes were horrible, until we called you and Gerald answered. He was really busy but he was not only professional, friendly, knowledgeable but made us feel home so we booked your hotel. It was super clean, that was great. Thank you so much for employees as him, for sure others feel the same. Joy was nice too, she helped us to purchased one of your jewelry. Happy Memorial to you all! See you soon.

Our Memorial Day weekend getaway started off with a smooth check in with Sonny. He was very helpful and treated us with the upmost respect. He was very helpful with any questions we had. He was amazing and courteous. I will definitely be back with the impression Sonny left. I hope all Ocean View Hotel staff is as wonderful as he was. Very happy customers, The Fowlers.
