Neighborhood
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.

Firstly it has to be said the hotel location near the beach is perfect and it is impeccably clean. However it has no facilities. No bar and not even possible to have breakfast there. At £250 a night I find it incredible that there is no provision for breakfast . Wouldn’t stay

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry that the amenities that we provide were not up to the level that was expected. We are a boutique hotel and have limited facilities at the hotel, but have worked out partnerships with local businesses for discounted options for our guests. The rates that we charge are reflective of our limited on-site options, but we try our best to provide service and meet the standards that are expected of us.

I apologize for the negative experience that you had. We always strive to provide our guests with 5 star service when they stay with us. While there are people that we must also answer to, we do always try our best to work with our guests and provide fair solutions where we are able. Again I am sorry that the experience was such a nightmare and we hope that should you give us a chance in the future you would enjoy all that the Ocean View Hotel has to offer.

On the website it mentions a gym nearby. Can you advise how far and what are the costs associated with using it?
I believe there is an equinox but it’s super expensive for a day pass. There’s several studios near by like Soul Cycle, Exhale, Orange Theory, you can go on MINDBODY a s see what other workout studios are near by.

Yes the hotel does have an area for you to hold bags at the beginning or end of stay. I am not sure they do bike hire but turn left out of the hotel then turn first right and a bike hire shop is about 50m on your left. I think it was 30 $ but not sure but it was not expensive.

"Pay the extra for one of the balcony rooms. The view is amazing!"
"Go somewhere else !"
"It is definitely worth the extra $ to get an Ocean/Pier View."
"Our ocean view balcony was so tiny that my wife and I could barely sit down."
"avoid street-facing room if you desire quiet"
