Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Overall, I rated this hotel 10 out of 10. The room was super clean. They gave me a complimentary gifts for our 3 weeks baby.

The Loews hotel is a very clean modern hotel that has been well maintained. Most of the rooms have very good views. The llobby is on the 4th floor. Request being on the 5th floor or above. The hotel is across the street from the beach which is public so there isnt a reserved area for hotel guests or even beach service available (chair and umbrella). The area is safe and is walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the famous Santa Monica Pier.

Stay away I would never recommend this hot hotel it’s not that’s all cracked up to be

Okay, so it’s a great location hotel, right next to the Santa Monica Pier. Lots of activities on the beach. That is a pre-curser to the nightlight that inhabits the areas for the evening. Transients like this location, and with the hotel being renovated and looking great inside, the building is not sound proof by any means. You can hear them all night long. But, the views are great if you like to spend time in the room, day or night. Construction on the road at 7am, and the early hussel and bussel is sure to wake you by 7:30am. Our next stay will be in a cheaper room with some noise barriers between our room and the beach scene.

Excellent hotel. Located close to beach, Santa Monica pier, shopping and restaurants. Bike rental close by and a path along the beach to bike on.

Terrific Hotel but slightly noisy. built around pool which is fine but encourages lots of kids to attend with family. Not much noise from pool but kids in Hallways are wild which makes noise. Hotel creaks when temperature changes

Hotel staff was awesome very attentive and babe tel location next to beach and all the action was perfect

They will charge you $30.0 Extra on top of the room rates, and you won't know about that until you checking out. They call it Spa fees. Even if you never step a feet in their Pool. I think that's not fair. And if they planning to charge you something they should let you know in advance.

Awesome hotel. Beds were very comfortable. Had a hard time connecting to the wifi, but everything else was great.

OverAll had a nice experience but wouldn't stay there again. feels like there is no Security in the hotel and a lot of people who aren't guests of the hotel seem to just wander in. Pool area was super noisy and crowded from early Morning till way into the night. Hard to get a lounge chair by the pool was completely full. Family friendly aspect I did like. Staff was nice and helpful. Room was pretty but hate when bathroom doors don't have locks on them and when the sinks are open and the shower and toilet are in one closed off area.

When choosing a hotel I wanted one that was on the beach with a pool. The pictures that showed this hotel led me to believe it was actually on the beach- it was not. The pictures of the fire pits with some rooms look so great- but don't pay the extra 100 for them- they are on ground floor right in front of the road. The pool looks huge in the pictures- it is not. The rooms were ok. For the cost of them I would have expected higher quality bedding, and larger rooms. We did arrive early and they got us in immediately which we really appreciated.

awesome location and awesome staff, definitely would stay there again

The staffs were great! Called the front desk and requested a late check out so I could enjoy my view while having lunch was awesome!

We loved the outdoor swimming pool, spa and the fireplaces

Very pleased with our stay. We showed up early to drop off our luggage and the front desk was very accommodating. Within a few minutes they secured a suite for us and we were able to check-in and drop off our luggage. The suite appeared to be recently remodeled and was beautiful. We had a great view of the beach and the Santa Monica pier from our room.

This is our second time, we loved our room with private balcony and fire pit, staff are very kind and friendly, very clean. Good was my favorite the kids pizza, breakfast and snacks. One thing I found frustrating the privacy sign... The hole that insets into the handle was too big, hence every time you walked in or out it kept falling down, I think 1 point someone was walking past and put clean room, we were only in an hour.

Such nice people all through the hotel. Makes me want to move to Southern CA.

The hotel was very nice and the location was incredible - right on the beach and took long morning walks on the beach. It was very relaxing time - just wanted I personally needed.

Great spot in Santa Monica, but bring a big, fat wallet. A very small amount of chairs around the pool. Half the staff was far too snooty for their own good. At such a high price, I expected better treatment.

You cannot find a better location! At the beach, near the pier and Promenade, with pool sight to the ocean! Everybody very nice!
