We had a very relaxing weekend, perfect for short getaway. The ocean view from our balcony was amazing. I will return here any time we are looking for a quite get away for romance. Once the COVID restrictions are over.

From the moment we checked in, we enjoyed our stay. Very friendly staff. Help accommodating parking my truck. Lots of great recommendations. Location is excellent. It is on the main road so there is noise at night but it's worth it to upgrade to an ocean front room. The view of the pier is spectacular.

The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star is because I booked a room with an ocean view and got a room with a court yard view. The wifi was not working and there wasn't a microwave in the room. We traveled with little ones so we were heavily looking forward to spending some quality time at the end of the night with my partner. However the staff was amazing, the hotel was clean and we'll kept, and the location was great! We traveled with toddlers and felt welcomed and helped! I recommend booking directly instead of using a 3rd party.

How my second visit to the Oceanview Hotel could be better than my first - - well, the staff certainly are outdoing themselves. I have had the most pleasant stay, in all respects: Comfort of room, cleanliness, world-class amenities, speedy service, adherence to a litany of COVID-19 guidelines. What a team! I can't name them all, but it starts at the front desk (Joy, Gerald, David, Cesar), then includes attentive housekeeping staff and so much more. If you plan to visit the greater Los Angeles area, do yourself a huge favor, and treat yourself to a stay at the Ocean View Hotel.

Overall, great stay, friendly staff (David), limited Ocean View rooms so make sure you ask before you book. Its a nice place to stay when you want to relax when being so close to the beach. Only thing that bothered me were a lot transients outside in the neighborhood.
