To expensive for what they offer

The hotel sits right across the beach from Santa Monica and has a spectacular view of the pier and the park. Rooms are small, TV's are old, A/C is substandard, no noise cancellation from rooms, you can hear everything the guest on the next room are doing. No bell boy service or room service (they bring you food but it's from local restaurants), TV controller was not working, bathtub was also having problems with not holding water and at 6pm maintenance had gone home for the day . The room in itself it's old and hasn't been kept up to date. To be honest, for the price they charge, they need to do a lot of improvement, just because your right across the coast doesn't mean they get to charge premium pricing for the room and not offer a premium room for it. I will not be staying again there and would not recommend it.

Location is great, passable everything else.

Everything in Santa Monica is crazily expensive, so in that context this hotel isn't bad. Without the location, though, it would be similar to a "meh" Super 8.

Not as it seems

I was hoping this would be a great hotel to the end of our trip. Was I wrong - key machine not working - couldn't get in and out of room or elevator without going to get help. No drink machine or food on premises. Major construction day we were there and our car was filthy and very loud and dirty. When I asked for discount - was told flat out no refunds!!! Very displeased. Staff not helpful with help on room keys etc had to ask several times.

Construction Troubles

It was a very expensive hotel for the low comfort. It was being remodeled and there was no true lobby, only one way to get in (that was mostly unsafe - where the cars came in), you had to pay to park (I hate when hotels do that!), and the room SMELLED. It was because it was newly remolded, but the new chemical smell was so strong that my eyes cried. Also, when I used the toilet it was not screwed into the ground - when I reached for the toilet paper I almost fell (lol)! They gave me a new room (with attitude - I don't know what that was about, I was nice about it), however this one smelled, too. Finally, there was horrible construction noise for most of the day (it was summer time so lots of daylight hours). I was underwhelmed.

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

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.

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.
