Really enjoyed our stay at the Ocean View Hotel. The location is great if you are planning on spending time around Santa Monica and Venice. If you plan on going all around LA be prepared to endure some heavy traffic during the day and peak periods. The staff at the hotel are great and very accomodating. Our only regret was not getting a room with an ocean view. I’d definitely go back if I return to Santa Monica.
Friendly Staff and Excellent location”
I was on a business trip to a couple of other locations in Califonia and stayed at Ocean View hotel for one night on the way back to LAX. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and very comfortable. I had the perfect view of the ocean that it was hard to leave our room. Joy, Agustin Prudy was very helpful and kind. When I am ready to go back to Santa Monica, The Ocean View will be my first choice. Nat G - Canada
View on Point”
The view is definitely the drawcard at the property. There’s nothing more relaxing than looking at the ocean. Staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Rooms were well appointed, excellent separate shower. Close to third st promenade. Provided cookies in the afternoon were appreciated. Free water in the lobby too. Cons: valet parking is the only option and costs USD $38.50pn. No restaurant onsite, which isn’t that problematic considering you’re right next to the promenade. The beds were very uncomfortable- way too soft. There’s also no pool. However, compared to the property we usually stay at in Santa Monica, the Ocean View is far superior in all aspects. Will definitely stay again!
Amazing view, great quality of rooms, friendly helpful staff!”
The Ocean View is aptly named - the rooms actually overlook Santa Monica Beach! Location is also handy for lots of restaurants and the Pier. The rooms are lovely - great quality finishes, great bathroom, super comfy bed. And the staff are SO nice and SO helpful!
Hello Belinda: Thank you for your recent stay and for sharing your experience. Our location and Ocean View rooms of the Pacific Ocean are one to see. We hope to see you soon. Daniel Villegas Rooms Manager DanielVillegas@oceanviewsantamonica.com
We only had time for 1 night at the Oceanview but thoroughly enjoyed our time at this ‘hidden gem’ of a hotel. Wonderful location overlooking Santa Monica, beach, super clean generous size rooms, lovely ‘coastal decor’ and extremely helpful staff. This hotel is by far the best hotel I’ve stayed in for value, facilities, location and staff for many travelling years. Highly recommend!
Excellent location, service and facilities ”
The room was spacious, exceptionally clean and had all the amenities and more for a pleasant stay. It was diagnal from Santa Monica pier. 5 minute walk to 3rd street promenade and the train station. There was a supermarket within a 15 minute walk and there were other smaller convenience stores closer. Would highly recommend for anyone travelling to Santa Monica
Fantastic Location ”
No complaints about the hotel. It was clean, well-maintained and right in the heart of Santa Monica. A big thank you to Gerald (reception staff) for taking the time and initiative to help a friend and I with all of our travel needs. Great place to stay in Santa Monica!
2 blocks from the 3rd Promenade district right across the road from the Santa Monica pier and beach absolutely stunning. Hotel smells wonderful and you are grated by friendly staff members one in particular Joy who was extremely helpful. Room was clean and spacious. Bed and pillows comfortable. Highly recommend
Location, location, location”
The location of this hotel is perfect. Close to shops, restaurants and the famous Santa Monica Pier. I spent more time in the room (then out exploring) as I would of liked after falling ill. The staff were compassionate and went the extra mile to make me feel like it was my home away from home. Thank you
Great stay! ”
We booked this hotel because it’s so close to Santa Monica pier and right in the center of the restaurants. I loved how accommodating they are, they have fresh coffee and cookies and lollipops which my kids loved! Great location 10/10 would recommend!
great hotel and location”
right across the road from the beach and bustling Santa Monica Pier. easy walking to many restaurants and bars or a stroll along the beach. Great friendly staff who were always willing to help. Clean and tidy, well appointed rooms and complimentary wifi, would stay here again
Hello Dennis: Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are thrilled you had a fantastic stay. Daniel Villegas Rooms Manager DanielVillegas@oceanviewsantamonica.com
It may not be 4 or 5 stars but the staff go out of their way to make you feel like it is! Thank you Daniel and Joy for accommodating our needs, my friends and I did not want to leave. The room was comfortable and clean and the lotions and washes were good quality. The location is steps away from the Pier, restaurants and 3rd Street Promenade and everything else is a quick bus or Uber ride away. The only draw back was that the walls are thin, however the hotel was quite quiet so it was only heavy doors shutting that were an issue. I would 100% stay at the Ocean View again and look forward to coming back next time I'm in town!

Great Boutique hotel on Ocean Ave”
Great boutique hotel with amazing views of Santa Monica beach and pier Friendly staff great room and perks Will be back
Nice hotel great location”
Our stay was short but the hotel is in a great location and nice and clean. Room we were in was a bit noisy as at end of veranda and anyone outside their rooms talking was amplified to our room. It was always noisy and was good price and worth a look if your going to Santa Monica. Parking very expensive when staying as a guest
Best for tourist”
Good location, right across Santa Monica Pier. Great views too!
Was best place to stay in LA. Close to Santa Monica Piers and excellent place for walking around Santa Monica. Good for families to stay and enjoy.

Smacked in front of the beach, and walking distance to Santa Monica promenade. The area is less complicated as compared to Venice area, safe for solo travellers to walk around in the middle of the night. Great food easily accessible too.
Stayed for a long weekend with a girlfriend”
The hotel location is unbeatable and the value for the money is fantastic. The front desk staff and general service are slightly subpar (the Valet staff - however- were fantastic). You can walk to the beach, the pier, 3rd street promenade, etc. There is no pool or rooftop deck/view but the price was cheaper than other beachside hotels.
Location was great”
The location to Santa Monica city centre was really great. Really close to all the eating places & shopping. Would recommend for its location and cleanliness.
Myself and my family stayed at the Ocean View Hotel for one night whilst visiting Santa Monica. On arrival I was shocked to learn we had to pay $44 to park our car overnight. We had opted for a Deluxe Room with Courtyard View. The courtyard is actually the car park so not a nice view at all.
