The over all experience was outstanding. Everyone from the valet employee to the night shift front desk employee was so polite, friendly and helpful. Everything in our room was clean and all the electrical devices worked properly. Now I will only stay at Ocean View Hotel when I am staying in Santa Monica.

Stayed for 2 nights in February 2015. The room was clean and comfortable, but the "garden view" room was actually a view of the parking lot that was decorated with a few flowers. Friendly staff, especially nice valet guys. However, there is a $30/day charge for valet. It would be nice if they added a bar....

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.
