We stayed 4 nights at the Ocean view hotel and what a great hotel. Joy gave us a early check in and Jose gave us an upgrade to a higher floor after 2 nights which was also greatly appreciated. The hotel location is awesome as its located across from the pier. Modern rooms, great staff and a holiday we wont forget in a while. Thanks also to Elizabeth for helping us with directions. We will be back. From Peter and Julie

If your goal is to be close to the Pier, shopping, etc., it is hard to beat the location of the Ocean View. The room was very small, but comfortable. We did have to switch rooms after we originally checked in. There were some stains on the comforter that were a bit concerning, but they did switch us to a new room...which was fine.

We were so looking forward to staying here for a couple of days. The website made the hotel seem amazing. For 2 nights with parking our bill was over 800.00. We were expecting a fabulous stay for this price. Let me just say it has a great location and view and that's about it. The hotel walks were thin so you heard everything above, below, and in the hallways. We had to ask 4 different times for a rollaway bed and the same for pillows.

We were staying at another local hotel and were bitterly dissappointed. As soon as I walked into reception Elizabeth greeted me warmly and then absolutely went out of her way to find us an appropriate room, then go on to help ensure that we were not charged by our initial hotel for the remainder of days we had booked. The complete opposite from where we had been staying and we were so grateful for her help.

My husband and I stayed at the Ocean View hotel for a long weekend. The staff was amazing- unfortunately I don't remember his name, but the gentleman from Luxembourg was so helpful in giving us recommendations and going out of his way to make sure we were having a nice stay. The room was clean and perfect size for the weekend. The bed was so comfortable- we wish we could bring it home! Overall the hotel exceeded our expectations, and was a great price.

The staff and management at the Ocean View are fabulous and the amenities are wonderful. The room was beautiful, comfortable and squeaky clean. The location is great, within walking distance to great shopping, restaurants and the beach and pier are right across the street. In the evening we sat on our balcony with a bottle of wine and people watched. We had a wonderful stay and we plan on returning in the near future.

If you want the best location in Santa Monica, this is it. Any closer to the pier is too crowded and any further is extra walking.

Hotel was a great time, very nice property, modern look, not too big. Awesome location not too far at all from Santa Monica pier (hyper touristy), dinning, bars, and Venice beach experience (interesting). Blue daisy is a pricey but awesome breakfast spot nearby.

This is my second time staying at this hotel and it was better then the first! I was able to get another Ocean View room (really worth the extra $$) and couldn't ask for more. I got a top floor room and the view of the beach and pier were stunning! Parking is reasonable at $33 a night and the attendants are all very friendly. The staff were super friendly once again- especially Oscar and Jose at the front desk! Can't wait for my next visit!

We had a room with a beach view wit balcony. Yes we saw the beach and Santa Monica pier from the room but the balcony wasn't good for anything.

If you're looking for a hotel in the heart of everything then this is it. It's clean and in a great location. However, don't expect much more out of it.

This was our first hotel when we first arrived in America, to go on a road trip. The first night we stayed in this hotel in Santa Monica. Great location, the hotel is near everything, the sea front and pier is just across the road, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants one/two/three blocks up. The only issue is that you can hear other people talking outside of the hotel bedroom and it is quite loud, but a pleasant sleep was still able. Lovely rooms and the lobby is really beautiful.

Only had one night here but loved the location - easy walking to the pier and local restaurants. Sadly the night was not restful due to the loud group of guests holding court on the balcony above us from 3a.m. Mentioned at reception on check out but no apology - given the poor soundproofing between rooms the management may want to take a more proactive approach to late night noise.

There is no pool but the sea is a short walk away and my daughter loved this. I would return here.

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights with family in 3 rooms. Location is great and the room size is not bad. if you want to book this hotel only book ocean view the other rooms are not worth it at all. The staff were ok but i forget my flat iron in my room and i called the same day i left and they didn't help me get it back.

After having a stressful pick up from super shuttle lax, we were greeted by Ryan who was just lovely, all the staff are so polite, friendly and helpful. We stayed in a king courtyard room (225), it was amazing the bathroom was nearly as big as the room itself with a double rain shower and great amenities. Great location straight across the road is the Santa Monica pier.
