Ocean View Hotel, Santa Monica
Very Good8.0
A bit noisy, but wonderful
As Angelenos, we needed to get away for a quick Friday night, and we didn't want to fight traffic to get out of town. The hotel was wonderful. I asked for an ocean view, and we definitely got it, but we also got all the noise from the traffic along Ocean Avenue. So, great hotel, great people, great location. Nice walk to the farmers market on Saturday morning. But noisy with the windows open, which the hotel cannot control.

We've styed there before. Staff is great, location couldn't be better and the hotel is well run.

For the amount I spend for two nights I was expecting ocean view and what I got is a small view to the Parking Lot. Really disappointed on service. My total spend was almost $1000 dlls for a parking view? Next time they suggested to make my reservation directly with the hotel to get a better deal.

Not worth it
Small, smelly and noisy room. Not worth the price.

Good value for the area
The rooms have thin walls. While I was on the street the noise from the other rooms was more of a distraction.
