Had read reviews so just expected the worst but I was pleasantly surprised :) staff were extremely helpful and friendly! Showing us a map of the area on arrival and they kept our suitcases all day on the last day so we could stay and enjoy our last day riding on the bikes through santa monica and Venice beach (got...

We paid extra for an ocean view and it was well worth it. The second floor (top floor) had bistro tables outside each room so you had a private place to relax. Only problem was ice maker did not work and fridge kept leaking so it was hard to keep our food cold. We went store and bought a cooler... More

Location is everything! The room was average, and the room was a bit overpriced, but thats to be expected considering its location. Had an amazing view of the beach, also within walking distance of the beach.

I was pleasantly surprised to walk into a modern looking room. Not sure how long ago it was refurbished, but the room was clean, simple but well styled. It was spacious (and I was in a party of 3 female adults sharing 2 double beds!) and well laid out. The bathroom was large, though a bench around the basin would... More

Last week I spent three nights at the Bayside Hotel. I was in room 122 which is on a side walkway in between the back parking lot and the front office. I found the location to be very quiet, which is very important to me. The rooms in the front have ocean views but are also on a the street... More

Room was pretty standard--2 full sized beds, nothing special. It actually reminded me of an economy motel in terms of size and layout. That said, it's right across the street from a giant beach and close to santa monica pier. One strategy would be to stay here to save money (but not much) and eat and drink at Shutters close...

Stayed here June 5 thru 7th. Then went to another hotel because the past reviews were not so great. I was pleasantly surprised. They have free bikes, umbrellas, folding chairs, and beach towel with beach bag. Also, we could see the ocean from our room. The room was very basic with full size bed which was very comfortable. The staff... More

Nice basic hotel near the beach. The hotel has private parking and there is metered public parking near by as well. It's an easy walk to the beach, the pier, restaurants, and other fun attractions. If you can't walk there... Left/ Uber and cheap options as well.

Hotel is an easy walk to Venice Beach and only a few mins walk to Santa Monica Pier. Hotel doesn't look much from the outside (old too) but the rooms are lovely (roomy, big comfortable bed and tastefully decorated with a beachside holiday house feel). Rates are good too. We enjoyed our brief stay and will def stay there again.

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.
