“Perfect family stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

This is a beautiful relaxing and low key hotel. Our suite was perfect for our family of 5, large and with lovelt touches .The food and atmosphere was really good. The location was great for trips in and around LA and there was always bikes available for rides alone the coast.

They Hotel is extremely well appointed and the rooms are a very generous size. I would like to thank Nicole, Ryan and Courtney for making out stay very enjoyable. I have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel. We will definitely be staying again.

What a wonderful experience!. From the arrival at the newly refurbished lobby, to the beautifully appointed suite, this small hotel is worth every penny. All the rooms open to the open courtyard overlooking the pool. The cozy restaurant and lounge offers fabulous food. The service is great. The staff is nice and, good looking. Room service is delivered on time. Overall five stars for this great property. We will come back.

Dear Arie-Mordejai,

Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent experience at the Oceana Beach Club Hotel.

I am very pleased to learn that you have truly enjoyed our hotel and were able to experience our home as it was intended to be; a beach front home that gives you a true feeling of the essence of Santa Monica with a beach feel, personalized service and locally inspired food fresh from the farmers market.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Oceana in the very near future.

Warmest regards,

Christoph Moje

We recently returned to the Oceana for a family weekend. The staff could not have been nicer! Our room was huge, every request was answered quickly and with a big smile. We have stayed at Shutters many times and we much prefer the Oceana. It is not on the beach, but it is across the street and the walk along Ocean avenue is very pleasant. We didn't have an ocean view room this time, but if that is important I would request one on the second or third floor.
We definitely look forward to staying there again soon!

Room Tip: We prefer the second floor for a better view of the water

location great, staff great, management ...absent..
Paid for a suite with SeaView... a lot of money.
but when arrived, having driven all the way from San Francisco, we got assigned..a suite with.. streetview.. basically, it was street level and the only view was the very large avenue between the hotel and the seafront. This Suite, should never be assigned as a suite with Seaview.
Fair enough, the next day, we were given the same on 3rd floor, and that was good.
But since we were staying 3 nights....this was a shame..Considering its more expensive than for example Shutters.. disappointing.. I was told many people made the same comment about that street level suite.. with .. street view..

Dear nabil c,

Thank you for taking the time tor review your most recent experience at the Oceana Beach Club Hotel.
While I realize that your initial impression of the Suite was less than stellar I do appreciate your candid feedback as it allows us to revisit our service offerings. But I am happy to learn that you enjoyed the remaining time at our hotel with your family.

Please feel free to contact me directly next time you are planning to visit the Santa Monica area as I would be happy to assist you personally in assigning your accommodations at the hotel that will fit your needs.

Thank you again for your feedback and I am looking forward to welcoming you back to our home in the very near future.

Recently spent two nights there. Meticulously renovated property away from the hustle and bustle of the Santa Monica pier. Can't say enough about the friendly engaging staff--- from the parking valet to the bellhop to the front desk staff. Rooms are large and clean and beautifully decorated. Suitable for families. Don't miss the buffet breakfast!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that opens out to the pool.

A really gorgeous boutique hotel with good food and great friendly staff - nothing was too much trouble.

The decor of the rooms, restaurant and other areas was really tasteful and everything has been done with great attention to detail. I think they have just recently refurbished so that could be why but none the less, it was very clean and well kept. I particularly liked the pool area which doubled up as an outside bar in the evening complete with comfy sofas and log fires - if needed. Great, relaxed ambience.

Good mix of guests - families and couples of all ages.

Fantastic location for the beach, bars, restaurants and shops without being right in the middle of it all.

Room Tip: We had a great room overlooking the ocean on the top floor. Not sure what the views were like if yo...

Dear HMTW1,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your most recent stay at the Oceana Beach Club Hotel.
I am truly excited that you enjoyed our home as we like to call the Oceana. Indeed we have just recently completed a renovation of all our public areas and have re-launched our restaurant Tower 8 with Josiah Citrin as our 2 star Michelin Chef.
We take a lot of pride in every little detail from room amenities to warm and personalized service from our team members. I am glad you were able to experience just that in our relaxed setting.
Again, I am extremely grateful for your feedback and hope to welcome you back to the Oceana in the very near future.
