“Really fun!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

The Oceana Hotel is fabulous. The rooms are large. The rooms are HUGE!! We stayed at the Fairmont several times, which is lovely, but the Oceana feels like home. I wish the walls were a bit more soundproof...my only complaint. Oh yeah! Forgot to mention the restaurant....deeeelicious!

Room Tip: Try to book an ocean view room.

Dear Iwarren 1,

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

I am excited to learn that you truly enjoyed all what our hotel has to offer from the oversized rooms to our new restaurant Tower 8 with its farm to table California Coastal cuisine by Josiah Citrin.

We are looking very much forward to welcoming you back in the very near future for another "really fun" experience at our home.

Warmest regards,

This hotel is in a perfect location right across from the beach and a few blocks away from restaurants and shops. The room and bathroom were very spacious and lovely. The staff was so
warm and friendly from the first time you step into the lobby. Outstanding service from Courtney at the checkin and Matt at the restaurant. Would recommend t his hotel for anyone looking for a perfect little oasis in santa monica.

My husband and I stopped in Santa Monica for the night and stayed at this little jewel. Great location near the 3rd Street Promenade, the Pier and beach. Fantastic staff, wonderful room and nice restaurant/bar by the pool. Sat by the poolside fire in cushy chairs under the stars and had cocktails with my hubby. Would be happy to stay here every time I hang my hat in Santa Monica.

I am glad you discovered our home while spending the night in Santa Monica. Hopefully we can have many more getaways at our hotel when you want to hang your hat in our small and intimate hotel to simply relax with your husband.

All best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2014.

Two years ago we stayed at Oceana for Christmas. It was so relaxing, well located, and comfortable, that we just had to go back for Christmas 2013. The room is nice size for our family of 3. The beds are comfy. With ocean, sunset view, and open windows the setting is perfect for lazy reading and people watching. The proximity to the Santa Monica pier is great for first time visitors. Easy access for shopping and exploring make the location ideal. The atmosphere at Oceana is relaxed and friendly. The food in the restaurant is great, especially breakfast buffet and made to order dishes. If we went back a second time, you know it had to great. Check it out!

Location is the best thing about this property -- on the residential side of Santa Monica, but short walking distance to everything.

Climb down to the beach is steep, but it is just across the street.

Splurge on the ocean-facing rooms.

Great alternative to upscale chain hotel. The 1950's cabana feel in a luxury hotel. Huge rooms, would be great for family travel. Very nice staff who actually talk with you, not to you, and make you feel right at home. You won't find a gift shop or sundries or other chain hotel icons here. Not the usual upscale Santa Monica ocean front hotel. Great food (one restaurant and a kitchen in your suite), room to spread out, a calm space, especially for a longer stay. Enjoyed the Oceana.

Room Tip: 1st floor is pool level, if you want to hang out at pool, or at the bar, that's great.
