What a great place to stay! Perfect location and friendly accommodating staff! Loved having the bike rentals readily available to cruise the strand. Conveniently located within walking distance to many restaurants. We walked to Dogtown Coffee every morning for breakfast.

I have just stayed at Bayside for three nights and absolutely loved our time there. This is a small hotel right on the beach which offers something a little bit different from some of the larger, more upmarket chain hotels within the area. We had a garden View room with kitchen which looked out onto the small lawn with sun...

Good location with easy access to beach and waterfront walkway. Room had a cozy beachy vibe and was clean when we arrived - although housekeeping apparently did not include sweeping the floor of sand during our 2-night stay. Cost probably related more to location than to the finer details of the hotel. Staff was pleasant and helpful.

3 of us stayed in separate rooms in this hotel on the night of 16th April. It is the only place we all jointly used our cards and we have all experienced attempted credit card fraud for the sum of thousands at stores and hotels in Dubai. I have tried to report this to the hotel before posting this but...

Nicely appointed room with a slight beach vibe. Bed was comfy and the rooms on the first floor have a private patio. The check-in guys were helpful and friendly. They even offered to FedEx some items home for me. Bike rentals are available and the beach is within view from the front desk. Great restaurants are within a 1-2 block...

This was a nice place to land after hiking in the desert. It is comfortable and clean. The rooms are really bright with the way they are decorated which is really nice. Felt like the sun was coming in and it made it look cleaner instead of dingy like some hotels. Very comfy beds. We did have a bit of...

We paid around USD300 a night and was definitely not worth it! The weather was cold on our trip to Santa Monica and the room was not equipped for it. The seal around the door had come away so we could see the outside. The curtains were old shabby things that hardly covered the window so people walking past our...

Stayed here for one night, was in a great location right by the beach 15 minute walk to the Pier. The man who checked us in (didn't catch his name, but he was an Aussie) was super friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here whilst touring the west coast and throughly enjoyed it, the bath was a little on the small side but I'm not a bath person so it didn't bother me, perfect position the rooms were clean and had everything you'd want. Would definitely recommend and stay again,

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.
