Clean, comfy, and moments from...
This hotel was perfect. Great access to the beach and the pier, clean, beds are comfy.
No continental breakfast or business center and the parking in their lot is too tight. They need to get rid of s few spaces in my opinion.

Nice hotel.
Central location.
Central location in between Main street and 3rd street promenade if your looking for shopping. Straight across the way from the beach, the rooms came equipped with a beach bag anbd 2 beach towels a nice touch even though it was freezing when i stayed. A little bit expenive as there was no breakfast included but there were plenty of places to eat around. Overall a lovely clean hotel would recommend.

Great Location and friendly, helpful staff
Fantastic Location
Stayed 2 nights, wonderful comfy bed and bedding. Was flying out late the 3rd day, the office looked after my baggage while I spent the afternoon visiting a few more places in Santa Monica, and ordered me a cab when I arrived back late in the afternoon to catch my flight. Very helpful.

Very bad
All was poor. I never seen an ugly hotel like this one. The room smelling cigarette, noisy, unfriendly staff, towels was not clean, the sheets was disgusting... I will never come back!!!

Feel like a surfer in Santa Monica beach
Sea view, clean, sober, good spot
I stayed 9 days at Bayside hotel and is an amazing place to sleep neighboring Venice, the sea and Santa Monica. Quiet, sober and clean.

Just ok
Location not too far from pier or Main Street.
Room small, sink didn't drain, no top sheet, they say they change duvet cover. Last stop on 2week trip, very little value for the cost compared to rest of trip. No view from room, stuck in room, ...

Great hotel, but bring your ear plugs.
Huge rooms, Kitchenette and proximity to the beach
overall the hotel was excellent; great location, huge rooms and a bonus kitchenette, however there were some problems with excessive noise. this was solely due to inconsiderate neighbours and not the hotel location or staff. when we reported the loud party downstairs, security did intervene after an hour. the walls are thin, so expect to hear the tv and conversations of your fellow hotel guests.

Cute hotel in a quiet and convenient location
location is convenient; room is quiet, bed is good
We were in Santa monica for just one night, this hotel provided very sweet and nice rest place for us. Walking distance to the beach and shopping/dining area. Hotel is not big but with everything and quite sophiscated and sweet, room with confortable beds and pillows. Highly recommend to stay here with a early morning biking by the beach, hotel also provides bikes rental service.

Great location in Santa Monica,...
The location really makes this place. Was super close to the beach and Santa Monica Pier. The room was clean plus the complex was quite. I would book early to get the ocean view rooms. Our unit looked...
The room felt tight even for just two people. The parking rate is crazy $32 to park in their lot. I would've parked off site if it wasn't a holiday weekend and parking was already crazy.

Fabulous location, rooms small but cute, clean.
location, quaint clean rooms
This is my second time staying at the Bayside. The location is fabulous: right across from the quieter end of Santa Monica Beach, in between Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach and a stone`s throw away from the 3rd St. Promenade. The staff are kind and attentive. The rooms are very clean, but small. Standard amenities are provided, as well as beach towels. Well worth the money especially seeing as the location is perfect!

Super goedgelegen hotel met het hoogst nodige
goedgelegen,netjes,behulpzame medewerkers,....
dit hotel is super gelegen voor allerlei doeleinden! ideaal vertrekpunt om te sporten, winkelen, bezoeken,...dicht bij strand, pier, bushalte, stad, restaurants,... hotel is netjes onderhouden en heeft alles wat je nodig hebt. zelf strijkijzer & strijkplank waren aanwezig, evenals een speciale strandtas + strandhanddoeken om te gebruiken als je naar het strand gaat!!! dit zijn toch wel leuke details die het verblijf aangenaam maken! leuk ook dat er fietsenverhuur aanwezig is in het hotel, en gratis gebruik van hun pc & internet! 't was in orde!
