“A Staycation to remember”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We live inland and wanted to getaway to the beach for a weekend. The Oceana exceeded expectations! We had a huge guestroom with the most amazing bed we have ever slept in and a bathroom with soft oversized towels, then add in the warm and friendly service - we felt like we were really someone special...

While sitting out by the pool, we were surprised with a nice ceramic spoonful of sorbet served to our lounge chair. Our stay was full of these types of surprises!

My wife and I took advantage of the complimentary beach cruisers and rode our bikes around the area, stopping on Montana for some window shopping along the way.

We had dinner in Tower 8, and the service and food were amazing! I highly recommend this experience to all.

On our second day we took to the stairs (about 1/2 block down Ocean to Montana) down to the beach. It was only about 10 minutes door to shore, and it helped us work off our dinner and dessert from the night before.

All in all, I can't think of any other time that my wife and I have spent on staycation where we had a better time. I highly recommend Oceana to all. I hope you have as wonderful and memorable time as we did!

The Oceana Beach Club is a good hotel. It is all about large rooms and decent service.

The downside of this hotel is it's location: you are far off from everything. - Even though it is "oceanfront" you walk 10 minutes to the beach. And you walk 10 minutes to downtown Santa Monica.

If you consider Santa Monica as being your hub for your trip to Los Angeles think about it twice. You are always driving at least 45 minutes to wherever you go at any time of the day - with compliments of LA traffic.

We thought we would try a different hotel for this trip to Santa Monica and selected Viceroy based on the positive reviews. We however were very disappointed with its location and the room provided so checked out after one night after having agreed with Oceana Beach that they could accommodate us at very short notice. We were treated like royalty by the staff but we think they do that to everyone. Room was great, pool area so restful, restaurant excellent, why we ever thought of trying anywhere else was a big mistake. Big thanks to all at the hotel and look forward to visiting again soon

Room Tip: They have a range of rooms - talk to reception for advice

We stayed here for a couple of weeks while our apartment was being renovated. What a pleasure.
It really was like staying with wealthy and generous relatives. The suites are huge, and very well equipped. Furniture a bit like grandma's attic, but we kind of liked it. Views of the ocean come with the noise of the main road, but if you can live with that, totally worth it.
The swimming pool area again is small but so very welcoming; a few tables are set around the pool where one can have lunch or dinner; the restaurant is also small but eating here is like having someone cook just for you.
The place is quiet; one has to walk a few blocks to get to the congestion that is 3rd St. Promenade. We found this to be a plus. Also a few blocks to the much more civilized area of Montana with a few nice restaurants and shops.
Located just across the Palisades Park.
Great for families.

Room Tip: If you like quiet rooms, the ocean front ones are not for you.

We recently stayed at the Oceana at the suggestion of our son, who recently moved to Los Angeles. From the moment we were delivered to this fine boutique hotel on Ocean Avenue to the moment we left 3 days later, we felt welcomed and cared for in a warm but unobsequious manner. Its young staff engaged us at checkin with a glass of prosecco, gave us walking directions to the best local breakfast eateries, helped us get familiar with using Uber on our smartphone and ensured that our accommodations were terrific. The Oceana will be our LA home for future visits.

We loved his place! We were just on a stop over in LA and it was definitely worth the trip! The room (Ocean View King) was impeccably furnished, the location is great and all of the staff were amazing - and very chilled. We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely be back to enjoy the great pool and bar! Definitely worth upgrading and worth he can fare from LAX.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Ocean view!
