Family trip

Would not recommend Fri, Sep 18, 2015
The hotel was in an excellent location,close to everything and right across from the pier. The hotel was clean, comfortable and very nice BUT extremely noisy. Doors and walls weren't well insulated and we could hear EVERY conversation that took place in the hallway. We were awakened multiple times by loud music, yelling and drunk partiers....not the place to stay if you want quiet and relaxing.

Extended holiday weekend

Would recommend Wed, Sep 9, 2015
The Ocean View Hotel is located right along Santa Monica beach and near the pier and Promenade. The location could not be any better for the money. Also, staff are extremely nice and are very respectful and friendly. I did not give a 5-star rating on its amenities because as far as I am concerned, there aren't many amenities available at this hotel. If you're looking for a hotel with a pool, spa, tennis courts, etc, you should probably look elsewhere. They have on site valet parking for $30 overnight. You can come in and out as you like so that is very nice. I also did not rate them 5 stars for room comfort only because right around midnight, other visitors started yelling and screaming at the atrium, which echoed into my room and was impossible to fall back asleep. This was probably out of their control and not their fault, but it annoyed me so I wanted to comment. The noise stopped after 5 minutes, which felt like 15. But overall, I highly recommed this hotel. I would stay here again on my next trip to Santa Monica!
