Nice hotel lovely staff... Bit of a way out from everything but bus outside takes u there for a dollar. Lovely cafe along side it the op cafe amazing food!!! Rooms were nice very comfy bed but found it hard to sleep because of the heat.. Ther was a fan on the ceiling but didn't do much in terms of cooling down. Would recommend it for value for money 8 out of 10

Good place, though a bit in the middle of nowhere. 25 minutes away from downtown (by foot). The place is clean, and pretty comfortable. The service was helpful, but the WiFi didn't work as well as it should.

I was impressed by the rooms for the cost. Simple, clean and modern. Its located close to great food and the OP Cafe was great! I was a little worried about the shared restrooms, but it was clean and easy to access. I'm coming back in a couple months to see my son in college and I'm staying here. Thanks for a great stay.

Staff were very nice and helpful. Stayed here the first five nights when we arrived from Ireland. Santa monica was gorgeous and couldnt have asked for more suitable place. Only bad thing was shared bathrooms but they wer verry clean and had cubicle showers and toilets so was grand

Arrived in Santa Monica and stayed here for 3 days. The rooms are fairly small, but a very comfortable bed and great comforter. A small flat screen TV, microwave and a sink in the room. As mentioned the bathrooms are shared, but I found it a small inconvenience for the great price and great room that this Ocean Park Hotel offers. You can walk to the beach (Santa Monica Pier) in about 45 minutes if you're somewhat speedy, or a $1 on the city bus will bring you down there. Fairly quiet neighborhood, and the check in process was quite easy and the employees are very friendly and are happy to answer all your questions. Besides the carpet being a tad bit dated, the hotel is kept very clean! So to a previous post who reported bed bugs, I believe he would be mistaken or it would be from another guest somehow, but it is definitely not from the hotel being Unclean.

I rated 3 stars, because of the lacking of amenities as you would find in a regular hotel, but it is a great value, very comfortable, convenient and clean!

Room Tip: Breakfast next door is great

Stayed here for 4 nights in April. One of the cheapest prices for double rooms we could find. The rooms are basic, but really clean with comfy beds. Shared bathroom facilities were clean, and the girls toilets had an extra key so that no one else could access them. Excellent location, right next to the bus stop - only $1 into the centre of Santa Monica! Also closer to LAX than most other areas of LA, so cheaper airport cabs (around $30).
No bedbugs in sight during our stay, and showers were great! (We are quite fussy people, so would definitely have realised if things weren't up to scratch).
Great if you want a budget double room, in a convenient location.
