Too Much Excitement
I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The owners have done a very nice job renovating the rooms and the outside, however, upon checking in, there were 7 policeman at the unit on the ground floor below me who had to kick open the door to bring out a crack addict who was in "transitional" housing with her boyfriend. On the better side, the hotel is across the street from a lovely park and the ocean. I would be sure there aren't any issue with who might be staying there before I returned

Bayside Hotel
The advertised price for the hotel was $212 a night. With all the taxes and parking, the total for the two nights was $600. I cannot recommend this hotel. In reality it's a remodeled 50s beach property and other than bicycles there are no amenities!

Overpriced beachfront hotel
This is a small hotel with a great location, right in front of Santa Monica Beach. However, in my opinion is overpriced. The rooms are tiny, the bed is tiny, they didn't pit sheets on it, only the comforter...which nobody guarantees you that is washed after each use. On the other hand, we stayed in the first floor rooms and the hotel access didn't have any security. You were literally sleeping right next to the street and with homeless living across the street. Other issue that we had was the noise. Since the hotel was open (like a motel concept) you could hear everyone walking through outside you door at any time. Also, you could hear loud noises from the room upstairs.

Perfect location!
This was my second time staying here and loved it just as much. Just wish they would offer complimentary or lower fee for parking as $36 per day is steep.
