Glenview, Illinois
Reviewed 7 April 2015

The Ocean View Hotel was an ideal place for our recent family vacation in Los Angeles. Just steps from the Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade and numerous dining and shopping options. The hotel staff was incredibly helpful and the hotel was clean, comfortable and quiet.

A small modern clean hotel in the very heart of Santa Monica. The beach and the 3rd Street are only a few steps away and so are all the restaurants, cafes and other luxury hotels.

Right across from the beach and a short stroll to the great shopping on 3rd Street Promenade. Our first hotel choices were booked out but that was lucky for us because we discovered a great little hotel for a good deal less money than we had anticipated spending. Room was clean, comfortable and decorated to suit the locale. Staff were...

We were staying in an apartment that required an early check-out with a very late flight. Tourist information suggested Ocean View as a hotel that would do luggage storage for a small fee. We stopped by to organise this and ended up booking a single room. The reception staff were exceptionally helpful and lovely. There were 3 of us and...

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.
