After having a stressful pick up from super shuttle lax, we were greeted by Ryan who was just lovely, all the staff are so polite, friendly and helpful. We stayed in a king courtyard room (225), it was amazing the bathroom was nearly as big as the room itself with a double rain shower and great amenities. Great location straight... More

The location was superb, as I was travelling with my 9yr old daughter this suited us well. I wasn't keen to walk around Santa monica after dark because of the homeless people issue they have there. so this hotel was ideal. There is no pool but the sea is a short walk away and my daughter loved this. I would... More

We stayed at the Ocean View Hotel for 1 night (19th Aug) as part of a Californian road trip from Vegas. We travelled from uk for our son's 21st birthday. We arrived late afternoon and although we hadn't pre-booked parking at the hotel we had no trouble, the valet was very pleasant and efficient. Check in was easy and our... More

Joy was amazing, she helped me rent a car. They dropped it off at an event I was attending and then picked it up at the hotel. The entire thing was seamless. Rooms were very nice, lobby was nice and the location was perfect. Thanks

Look, before I go on I want to start by saying the staff were friendly and the location was great but that's where the nice stuff ends. My wife and I paid AU$500 a night for this room.and it just didn't live up to the hype. Our room had no view, no balcony and a 5 star view of the... More

Only had one night here but loved the location - easy walking to the pier and local restaurants. Sadly the night was not restful due to the loud group of guests holding court on the balcony above us from 3a.m. Mentioned at reception on check out but no apology - given the poor soundproofing between rooms the management may want...

This was our first hotel when we first arrived in America, to go on a road trip. The first night we stayed in this hotel in Santa Monica. Great location, the hotel is near everything, the sea front and pier is just across the road, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants one/two/three blocks up. The only issue is... 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.
