Very nice trendy boutique hotel in an excellent location. Across the street from the pier. Next to the promenade. Staff friendly and helpful. Beds extremely comfortable. And for Santa Monica, reasonably priced. Would stay again and already recommended to a friend.

The hotel is immaculate and has been completely refurbished recently. Not all rooms have ocean views and I had one that faced a parking structure. The location is very close to the pier and many restaurants. While the hotel is very clean and new I didn't think it was a good value. No real amenities and the front desk staff's...

My rating is based on a advanced-purchase special offer, which was a considerable saving on the current rack rate. At current rates, it would get 3-stars only, as it seems over-priced. Hotel has been refurbished recently and the room was clean and comfortable with free Wi-Fi and good bathroom facilities. I had a (cheaper) room at the back of the...

There are many smallish hotels in Santa Monica on Ocean Avenue. How to choose? Ocean View is not as expensive as some, but it's attractive, with a wonderful & dedicated staff. It's near everything - beach on one side, 3rd St. Mall on other. It has Aveda products. I got a small balcony, overlooking the parking area - but plantings...

We got this hotel at the last minute with the help of a travel agent. She said the hotel had been remodeled. It looked very updated and had great pillows, bed linens, and a wonderful shower.

Whatever you do DON'T stay in room 113.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
