The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and roomy. My only complaint was that they were under construction and my room was right in the middle of the construction zone. I had plastic on my windows and no view and it felt weird. I would stay there again when they are done with the construction.

Under MAJOR construction with NO warning when booking-Dishonest Management I was booking this hotel for an employee from out of town. I know the area and from the outside this looked to be a great treat for her. However it is far from that. Outside all looks great- inside is scaffolding and blankets, jackhammers, no pool entirely under construction- everything!- it gets worse- my employee was handicapped and was not offered an upgrade in fact was given a room that still required stairs (after elevator ride) to get too! Unfortunately I was not aware of this until I picked her up for dinner. I was shocked- would never has checked in personally. The arrogance and lack of honesty of the staff to state their situation before paying- then to ignore her clear handicapp and give her the room in back of hotel with stairs needed to get there! Well Oceana you have permanently lost a client and any future employees will stay at any of your many competitors. Errors are one thing- this is total dishonesty and pure arrogance. Shame on you for this. DATE OF STAY NOV 26 2012 .

I love this hotel and the staff is amazing....HOWEVER if you are going between now (Thanksgiving) and January you should be warned that the hotel is under a massive renovation. We were dealing with half of the courtyard under a tarp with construction workers walking around. The "restaurant" is in a converted suite on the ground floor. Overall this place is great, but I would wait until the renovation is done....

Parking fee charge me 50 dollars! That's ridiculous. And also I think the room Is ok, not like awesome, maybe I will choose another hotel next time, the hotel is kind small, but I do recommend this hotel for the people who wanna really private vacation no one interrupt and really quite, because its kind of small hotel and do not have many people live in, the pool is beautiful!

My husband & I enjoyed 3 nights at Hotel Oceana. The hotel rooms are very attractive with very comfortable beds. Our room had a great view of the beachfront. The reception staff were helpful and welcoming.On arrival we were offered a glass of prosecco and escorted to our room by one of the reception staff who pointed out the features of the hotel. We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel was a little further from the centre ( 20 mins walk to pier) than we had anticipated. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay and recommend the hotel.

Our room was immaculate, decorated in a very comfortable and cozy style, the linens are wonderful! I would recommend this hotel to individuals and families.

The Oceana is in an older, quieter part of this attractive, southern California coastal community. It's a converted time-share building on Ocean Ave in Santa Monica, California. While there are interesting upgrades to the overall quality of the beach club hotel, there are vintage touches of its former footprint. A couple of downsides affected my overall impression of the experience - the low-grade hum of the HVAC compressor was disagreeably loud in our suite, and the underground valet parking reverts to tandem parking when the number of guest cars exceeds the allotted number of places. Any delay shouldn't be attributed to the valet attendants, as they're hustling to re-park rows of cars down below. It might lead to the occasional ding however, and guests should be mindful of this. Since it's virtually impossible to find street parking without being cited for parking permit violation or street cleaning violations in Santa Monica now, guests really have little alternative than to opt for the 39 dollar per night total during their stay.

Excellent service from the friendly hotel staff for a number of special requests. We had a lanai suite which has a very large sitting area with french doors opening to the pool and outside seating area. This set-up was ideal for our toddler. The bathroom was also large. The hotel is walkable distance to Montana street and 3rd street. It is 10-15 minutes to the beach. The restaurant is delicious, though quite pricey. We will stay here again primarily because of the spacious rooms and the hotel set-up where our suite was right next to an outside sitting area, eating area, and heated pool. Family friendly, yet quiet. 20- minutes walk to the pier. Walk across the street to the park for a sunset view.

This hotel supersedes any other hotel that aims to make the traveler feel right at home. Their service, hospitality, location and hotel ambiance is one that can never be duplicated- trust me! I travel a lot to so many different hotels reviewing them and this one is lacking their 5th star due to certain things that qualify them for that star, but believe me- they are a 5 Star Resort. My stay was perfect. Can't be easily matched by any hotel. Thank you Oceana Beach Club Hotel & Staff. You've set the bar pretty high.

Great location, professional and friendly staff. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. It's quiet and peaceful, but easy walk to beach, downtown and other sights. Only thing that I would change would be breakfast. It's a fixed $25 buffet which isn't worth it if you just want a cup of coffee and some oatmeal. No option for a la carte.

After spending 10 days travelling from San Francisco to LA, we ended our holiday with 4 nights at the Oceana as it appeared to be a relaxing destination with pool and great restaurant. Neither disappointed us. We stayed in room 205 which had the most amazing views of the ocean and beach, just across the road. Although we wanted to do some sightseeing and shopping, we were torn with doing so and leaving this lovely location. In the end, we managed to do all but would not have been disappointed if we had stayed at the hotel only. Service was brilliant, all members of staff, from reception, valet, restaurant and housekeeping appeared to work to making our stay a memorable one, it worked! The pool was slightly smaller than we had expected but didn't cause us a problem, I expect all city hotels are probably the same. Santa Monica restaurants and shops were a leisurely ten minute walk away.

Loved this hotel from the minute l walked in ! beautiful colour schemes, happy , the sort of place where you feel home.. the only trouble is you don't want to go and explore L.A, as its so perfect. lot of 30 year old, some with young children. Every staff member makes you feel welcome, the restaurant is really excellent(2 michelin stars, normal size portions!) great breakfast buffet. Great music played not too loud, l kept our door open to enjoy the view on the pool and the building. our room was really a suite, huge sitting room, desk corner, wonderful bed and sheets..(room 208) the one across from us had more sun, but they also have a kitchenette and are more expensive. l would go back like a shot!

I must say that this was one of the most pretty and neat hotel that we ever have stayed at. And the staff was wonderful in every aspect. Very helpful, showed deep and genuine interest in your questions and problems and not to forget; was also very goodlooking ;-) The negative things I can think of is that the pool closed at 6 pm every day, much too early in my opinion, because when you come home from town it would have been nice to be able to relax a moment in the pool before dinner. And the price level is perhaps a bit high if you want to stay for more than just one or a couple of nights.

ホテルの3階、プールのあるパティオに入り口、裏通りにベットサイドの窓がありました。もちろん眺めは望むべくもありません。レンターカーでLAを回っていたので目的には充分足りました。夜中に機械の音(ゴーッと云う音)が響きましたが、疲れて爆睡していました。従業員はフレンドリー、コンシアージの女性は綺麗です。サンタモニカの繁華街からは5ブロックほど離れていますが、散歩の距離でしょう。

サンタモニカですが、いわゆる3rd ストリートプロムナードなどへはかなりの距離があります。ホテルで自転車を借りた方がいいでしょう。逆に言えば、観光客などが周りをうろうろしているわけではないです。3階の角部屋でしたが、webに載っている部屋そのものでした。シャワーの水圧が少し弱かったです。リノベーションして数年のようです。バレットパーキングは高額ですが、とてもフレンドリーなスタッフがキビキビと働いています。食事もおいしかったです。ウィルシャーよりも南にあるホテルを選んだ方が、観光地としてのサンタモニカらしい場所で過ごすには楽かも。車を借りることをお勧めします。

Diskret mindre hotel med rigtigt god beliggenhed i Santa Monica. Service var fantastisk, medarbejderne meget opmærksomme og værelserne med en charmerende indretning. I modsætning til så mange andre hoteller i Californien bliver man ikke plukket så snart man vil bruge nogle af hotellets faciliteter. Eksempelvis lånte vi cykler gratis, Wi-fi fungerede også på værelserne - uden betaling og vi fik undervisning i surfing arrangeret af hotellet uden betaling. Alt i alt kan vi kun anbefale Oceana.
