Trip to Santa Monica

Excellent location, across the street from the ocean and the pier. The rooms are small, no special amenities, and no breakfast at the location.

Disappointing hotel on amazing location

I had high hopes and expectations for this hotel but was very disappointed. The rooms were far below average. The room doesn't even have a fridge. You would think the hotel would at least invest in a refrigerator so that their guests can have a cold drink after they spend hours out on the beach in the sun. They also have awful Internet connection. It's wifi network is extremely spotty. The connections are also unsecured so anyone on the street can connect to it and potentially steal your information. Finally, don't let the name of the hotel fool you. Only a limited number of rooms have actual ocean view and it's not even that great because the building is only four stories high.

Average hotel in a perfect location

Overall this hotel was exactly what we were looking for. Santa Monica is more expensive than some of the other beaches but it's a fabulous town, and it was great to be able to stay there. The hotel is clean, friendly staff, no complaints at all to mention. Tiny bit dated but you're right next to the beach and pier with great shops and bars on your doorstep.

It was okay....

nothing spectacular about it but hey for the price and the location it wasn't bad. I don't know if I would stay there again but it wasn't horrible. Also the parking attendant is really SHADY. He tries to get extra parking money from you when you have already settled up with the hotel. Stay away from the parking attendant.

Excellent location

The location of this hotel was excellent. Right next to the beach and the pier. We were not in the room much because of all the things to do. Walked to Malibu and back to Venice then to the 3rd street prominade. The best thing was that if we needed to put things in the room or grab something it did not waste any time at all. We would go back.

Great location

Room is average - not bad for the price. The parking charge is $20/day and this is not indicated anywhere nor do they tell you. The location is great and the staff was very courteous. The location couldn't be better for Santa Monica.

Very Satisfactory

The staff at the Ocaen View were as great as the view from our room. They were helpful, informative and courteous. The room and amenities were not out of this world but acceptable by any standard.

Great location, Nice staff. Would have been nice to have a mini fridge in room. Right near all the nightlife of santa monica. Great times were had.

Awesome location

Definitely get the ocean side room. The view is fantastic. Do not get the city side unless you don't mind a view of the water heater. We were able to walk easily to the 3rd street promenade, the Santa Monica pier, the beach, Palisades Park and Venice. This hotel is so close to so much that we didn't mind there was no continental breakfast. We would definitely go back.
