The Ocean Lodge is too expensive for what it is. I paid over 200USD for a cheap motel-room. The "hotel" has very little to offer but it's great location. Here are the reasons:
- Strong traffic noise
- Carpet with big stains

Average hotel with a great location near Santa Monica Pier. Parking is available but it is very tight; I had difficulty maneuvering through the narrow parking lot. It was also very loud, as the room was right near a major street.
This hotel is in a great spot, as it is close to the beach. But the doors, windows, and insulation leave a lot to be desired to keep out the noise in such a busy area! And the AC unit in my room was so...More

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.
