Nice hotel/motel on Ocean, just across the road from Santa Monica pier and the beach. Rooms clean and reasonably priced considering the location. Also, handily placed for restaurants and bars in the 3rd & 4th Street areas. Those on Main Street are a little further away but easily walkable.

Great little hotel in a suburb location, just a few minutes walk from Santa Monica Pier. Agree with previous reviewers comments, you will either love or hate this place. Rooms are a good size, we had 2 double beds, comfortable with good pillows. A nice big walk in wardrobe area with a huge mirror, bench and small fridge. Bathroom looks...

This is one of those hotels that you either love or hate. It is situated very close to everything in Santa Monica, so close it is untrue. It is however a throwback to the 1950's style motels, it could be a well preserved museum piece. It has withstood the pressures of modern developments and stands proud as a symbol of...

This is a great motel, nice prices for Santa Monica. You have the beach a block away, a cool dive bar across the car park called Chez Jay. Downtown SM is close by too, about a 5 minute walk along Ocran Avenue. Shutters on the beach is not far away, the breakfast served there is great, a real treat when...

This hotel has a very good location close to the Santa Monica Pier and beautiful Santa Monica beach. It takes only a few minutes to walk down to the Pier. The hotel is quite cheap, so it is a very good choice if you`re on a budget. The hotel rooms are very clean and tidy. There is a lot of...

The Ocean Lodge is a decent place to stay if your looking for budget accommodation. Good location and in walking distance of shopping precinct, Santa Monica Beach & Pier. Room was comfortable. Only downside was arriving off an early flight at 7.30am and the office did not open until 9.30 so were pretty much hanging around for 2 hours until...

Very clean and very convenient. That's it. It's not quaint or cute in any way, and there are no views of any sort. However, if you want a good location from which to enjoy Santa Monica, it'll do the trick. There is limited onsite parking, but the garage that they offer for just $5.00 a day is a safe and...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
