I stayed in an inside balcony room on business. Check in was a breeze and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel has a beautiful lobby overlooking Ocean avenue. The room is well appointed, clean and everything I expected at this price point. I also like the location - across from the pier and close to shopping. Everything... More

Carlos at the front desk was beyond helpful and friendly. It's a very nice hotel just a short walk to the pier or to the shops. The room we stayed in was a little dated but still nice. If you get an ocean view remember that it's off of busy ocean ave. I forgot this little detail when we book... More

What a marvellous hotel! Perfectly located on Ocean Avenue next door to restaurants and directly opposite Santa Monica Pier! Very modern hotel! Loved the color palette of the inside reception area; beach colors. The beautiful wall water feature was so calming and relaxing while we were waiting for our ride to the airport. Staff were incredibly friendly and more than... More

This hotel is in a great location on Ocean Avenue, and our ocean view king room looked straight out to the ocean and pier, though the balcony was very noisy and smelt of pee! The room layout was not perfect, with the armchair and footstool fouling the balcony door shutters, and the desk fouling the window shutters, so you couldn’t... More

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.
