"this is a decently priced hotel close to the beach"
be warned check in time isn't until 4 p.m.. The staff was nice and the room was mostly clean. My wife made note of some sand still present on the floor but with it being right next to the beach one can't complain. The water was hot in the shower which was nice and the view from second floor was excellent. If you are to stay at this hotel request a second […] floor room Oceanside in advance. It cost a bit more or one of those rooms but its well worth the cost.I read another review hey user posted about being charged for the complementary soaps located in the bathroom.we chose not to use the soaps and photographs and videos the room upon entry and leaving the hotel as a safety. I am Not sure if they would charge for the soaps however I felt it was best not to use them. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to the breach but bad conditions"
I liked the hotel location; however room conditions were bad. For example we preferred no to use the air conditioned because it was very noisy and furniture was a little bit defective as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth checking out"
Hotel was as expected. Not much of a view or anything fancy, but certainly a place we would stay again. Room was clean and comfortable and had a small kitchenette. Great location: Accross the street from the beach and a short walk to the pier. Liquor store and mini-mart around the corner. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking for us was […] cheaper to just "feed" the meter on the street in front of the hotel rather than pay the flat rate to park in the back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cozy clean and great location"
Room is smaller than some places but it's like a bedroom, cozy, really comfy bed. Loved that there was a mini bar, and the nice beach bag with two beach towels convinced me to walk down the the beach (literally across the street) for sunset. I wanted a balcony and the description said there was one, however it was really just a chair outside the door, […] but the ocean breeze was great anyway and that's what I wanted. Be advised no rooms have private balconies, but the rooms that face the ocean on the second floor cost a lot more than the ones that face the side, but regardless I really liked staying here, and FREE internet was great, and parking was $20/day which is fine with me, it would be that much anywhere in Santa Monica!

"right across from the beach"
great location to stay. room was very clean but could use a paint job in the room. ability to rent bikes was a plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would come back"
Kinda more like a motel but really can't complain - staff was nice, room was clean, and perfect location in Santa Monica, right next to the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable. I was only staying for 1 night, but it was very close to the beach and the Santa Monica pier. I will return next time in Santa Monica.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good experience for me and my boyfriend. Great hotel. Would go backGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cute, nice view"
We had the top corner room facing the ocean, it was very nice. I really liked that every room had a little outside table and chairs to enjoy the beautiful weather.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach"
I only stayed one day .beds was hard I could here other people in their roomsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place - good price."
Everything was as advertised and a good bargain.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good for a short stay"
Just stop by for a day, the hotel is in a good location and good for a quick stay. No for business travellerGenuine Expedia guest review
The problem we had with the stay was that the mattress was unbearably lumpy...definitely need to replace this mattress. And the pillows were way too thick. What has happen to normal pillows?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Located close to beach and other points of interes"
I would not recommend this hotel. Our room was very outdated with a busy road right behind the hotel. However the room was clean and the bed was comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Super cute hotel right across from the water. Definitely a little old, but nice beachy charm and a great price. Staff was awesome, very accommodating!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Short term trip"
Excellent crew disposition and kindness. Convinient location, specially for a short trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good overnight stay"
Great price for hotel so close to the beach, close to the pier, close to many restaurants. Ate at Stella Rosa's pizzeria-delicious! Very clean and comfortable room. The room even had beach towels and a beach bag to use. Obvious not a luxurious hotel, but for the price and just to sleep-was just fine! Cute little courtyard in the center.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Run, don't walk, away from this hotel"
I've never paid so much to be so disappointed. I simply do not have the time to present the complete list of "wrong" here. Just trust me - spend your hard earned dollars elsewhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean but noisy"
There are not many options for inexpensive hotels close to the beach, so this fit the bill. The proximity to the beach and Santa Monica pier was great but the back side rooms border a very busy, loud street. Our room was pretty small for 3 people but clean and fine for just sleeping there. Not a great place to hang out though. No elevator.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location near the beach and within walking distance to the pier and the promenade. Everything was clean and the hotelstaff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and cozy! I would definitely go back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location close to the beach!"
Great, small hotel, close to the beach. Clean and cozy room. Would stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for One night"
Stayed there for one night. If you need a room near the beach then this should be your 1st choice. Got all you need for a short stay 1-2 days max. Hotel staff were vey helpful and kind.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location but don't expect great facilities"
The location is fantastic and very central (5 minutes walk to the beach). But it appears that there are 3 tiers of rooms and the bottom tier is given to web based reservations. The hotel was not fully occupied and we had a fairly outdated room. Also as far as comfort of the room, don't set your expectations high.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Clean and Comfy Rooms"
First off, the location is great. Walk twenty yards and you are in the sand, about an 8-10 minute walk to the pier. The price was great for the location and the room was very clean and the bed quite comfortable. Was not expecting much from the outside but was pleasantly surprised with the room. The staff was very friendly as well. Will be coming ba […] ck. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"not worth my money"
MISLEADING! WHAT U SEE IS NOT WHAT U GET... online pics are not what it looks like at all... rooms are very old... need a bit of a remodel... walls are paper thin! not a place for relaxation... way too expensive for nothing! NO MICROWAVE OR FRIDGE! staff couldn't care less about your stay... not welcoming nor helpful... I could go on but I rather not... […] on a positive note though (not that it makes it ok to pay so much but...) the beds were clean and comfy (im 5'1". I had to hop a tiny bit to get on them) only new yhing in there was the furniture. basic white furniture from ikea. anyway... stay at the travel lodge instead. wish I had. HAPPY TRAILS!

A great place to enjoy the ocean and relax. Peaceful, quaint, a lovely place to be! We'll be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple and very clean."
We enjoyed our stay. The room was great for our one night but, for us, it would not work for a long stay. It was too small to spread out in. It was near the pier and had a nice view of the beach. We liked the cute 50s feel and the cleanliness.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great getaway location"
Our room was clean with a very small kitchen, didn't get the ocean view room, but overall is good and would recommend it if you are looking for a quiet place, walking distance to the beach for the weekend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the location of the hotel is unbeatable compare with any other 3 stars hotel. but the room is smaller then i expected, at least it's pretty clean. Staff are nice people there. Also the security around the hotel area shouldn't be an problem, it is right on ocean ave, walking distance to Santa Monica Pier, i would recommend my friend to stay there.Genuine Expedia guest review
A cute beach bungalow style hotel with comfortable rooms (mine was a single with no view), soft comfy bed (my fave) and the location is stellar! You're paying for an awesome location across the street from the beach and right by Santa Monica Pier. Get a west facing room and enjoy the views and sunset on your balcony. Dogtown Coffee on the corner a block […] away the other direction has good coffee and eats too. The limited parking is extra $, but probably worth the $ in ease in headache...especially during busy season. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location, close to the beach."
Awesome location close to the beach, and friendly staff at registration. Parking was horrible thow.

"Close to everything"
At first I was upset as I had read there was a balcony for every room but the hotel associate went out of his way to ma, e the stay special. The proximity to the Santa Monica Pier as well as Venice Beach was so convenient. There are different types of rooms so make sure you get what you are looking for and you will enjoy your stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, very noisy"
I knew more or less what to expect since I had seen the hotel many times before. This is an old motel that's been sold as a hotel. Which is fine, except as an old motel, the walls are thin and a lot of the rooms are close to a very busy road, so my stay was marred by noise. It was hard to sleep at times. The rooms facing the beach are probably quieter […] (and a lot pricier). The staff were somewhere between cold and perfunctory. Not very welcoming, and not very professional either. The room itself was small as expected, but it was very clean and the shower seemed to have been recently remodeled (no soap dish) . There was no bath - unlike the room in the pictures here. The rest of the bathroom was showing it's motel roots. Wifi was OK, DVR was quirky. If you need a launch pad to the beach, the pier, Main Street, 3rd street this location is ideal if you can stand the noise. I won't be going back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
fantastic location, quiet yet very near the ocean (you can hear the surf) and walking distance to downtown santa monica and pier. room decor was very updated, fun/ hip, and several rooms have kitchenettes (with a gas stove). staff was nice and helpful. our bed was king size and comfortable. nice new large flat screen tv. hotel has a "beachy" feel to […] it very fitting to the location and ambience. i would go back there again.

"Nice informality at the Bayside"
The Bayside staff was very nice and accommodating. We didn't have a decent reading lamp in our room and, when I complained, a good lamp was provided immediately. Other guests and the staff were all very friendly -- the vibes were good. And we were very close to the beach. We loved staying here, and hope to return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy access to the beach!"
Was a great place to stay for a long weekend. Easy access to the beach, Pier, and food! I would stay there again in a heart beat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"GEM in Santa Monica"
Amazing find!! The rooms are cute and convinient. The location the best! The staff allowed to check out at 2 PM no charge. From now on that is my spot in Santa Monica!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"With a bit of paint and repair this place is great"
Great location! Nice hotel but needs a fresh coat of paint. This 50's style hotel has comfortable beds and pillows but paper thin walls, so if noise from other rooms and street noise is a problem then this is not the hotel for you. The staff is very friendly and our rooms (we had 2) were cleaned and we were given fresh towels daily. The bathrooms have […] some updating needed, there was rust in the sinks and leaks in the shower, also peeling paint on the ceilings and baseboards. Because the hotel is on the beach and priced right I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice and Quaint"
I thought the boutique style sea side hotel was nice, clean and cute!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect location. We visited in December and the room was on the cool side. The room was very clean and modern looking.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed two nights mid-week at the Bayside Hotel. Even with the room at the back on the interior garden, we had a view of the ocean. The room was large enough, and the bathroom was very clean. Parking was available for $17 a day (well worth it). The staff was courteous and helpful. Most highly recommend!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fine motel by the beach"
I just stayed overnight, on a business trip. right across the street from the beach and the price was right. Would recommend it if you're planning on being outdoors most of the time. The room was small, so not a resort style by any means. Apparently that's a confusion point for a few people here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great affordable location in Santa Monica"
Cute decor! Right near the beach. I'd certainly stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"More like a Motel than a Hotel"
Arrived two hours before check in time, the room was ready for us, that was great. Motel atmosphere, not Hotel. If you needed to go the the office and another person is checking in, there is nowhere to wait but outside in the environment on the Motel walkway. This is next to the sidewalk. That will work in the summer months, but it was raining when […] we where there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Simple clean accommodation near beach."
Simple accommodation with nice touches. Staff were very helpful. Cose to beach without being overly expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean and comfortable"
It is not bad to stay there....but of course is better in another places. All depends how much $ you want to spend. The room was clean and even the towels and bad covers. Not smell around. if you just need the room this is a good place. Should be cheaper . I paid 140/night....To much for ...even if is santa monica. If I compare with Hotel Loews it is […] big differences.. but there I paid more. Like I said ...if you need some meeting in your room...hotel ..this is not a place to stay...but if you just need a room to sleep, with good and clean bed....it is not problem. ...and even the noise was not bed like I heard on some review. They charge $12 /parking space...In November was some spots available...I am not sure in august. If I want to go again there?????? I will check the price around......maybe with this price I can take better hotel...(this is between motel and hotel...but again....you are OK there.....it is not some to worry...except the comfort.
