The ocean view rooms are worth it. Reasonably priced in comparison to neighboring hotels, you get a great view of the Santa Monica Beach and the Pier, which lit up at night is a great sight to see. The windows were well insulated as we were not at all bothered by street noise during the night. The hotel is only...

Modern and clean hotel on great location. Across road from Santa Monica Beach, one block down from pier and two blocks off 3rd St shopping precinct. Bars and restaurants all around from fine dining to take out/family restaurants. Hotel only about 5 levels up, so very casual hotel, not a huddle bustle hotel. Our balcony room on level 2 overlooking...

I stayed at another hotel up the street and didnt like that they were away from all of the action. The staff here were friendly. The rooms were new and clean. Going back for sure. We stayed on the 4th floor and enjoyed our Ocean View

This was my first time staying at this hotel for business, while I wasn't impressed with my initial dealings with certain reservation staff before landing, I have to make special mention of the staff on the ground, who were amazing.

We asked for a room with an ocean view, but upon arrival it turned out they were having some sort of technical problem with the electronic key, so we had to spend the first night in a different room (overlooking the parking lot). The next morning, we had to wait until after 10 am to move to our ocean view...

Amazing Location. Was only there for one night so didn't really use any facilities. Room was clean and good base for Santa Monica as pier right accross the rd. Was pretty pricey but that is expected for the area.

Took a mini vacation to Santa Monica to treat my daughter to some ocean views. This hotel was perfect for what we were looking for. The views were breathtaking. The room was average but nice. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The parking attendants were very courteous and the lobby was spotless and smelled so clean. I'd...

Stayed for one night during a road trip around CA. Room was clean and recently remodeled with private balcony. Valet parking was a plus. Beach access is across the street and of course there were a million restaurants to choose from.

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.
