Bayside Hotel, Santa Monica
Not a pleasant stay.
Santa Monica was amazing as expected. The hotel was overpriced. I understand the excellent location at the beach dictated the price, but my room had cockroaches!!! The hotel did move me to another room and give a very slight discount, but not enough! The room was clean, but bugs are not acceptable, EVER!

Beautiful hotel, amazing value.
Stay here!! For the price, this hotel can not be beat. The rooms look like beautiful beach apartments, the staff is very accommodating, and the location can’t be beat.

Great stay Overall
I stayed here for a month so got a good feel for Bayside. The location - perfect. Just far away from Santa Monica main drag but 100 metres and your to the beach. Outside rooms small and average and inside the courtyard rooms great. The only issue I had was that you get people staying the one night partying inside the courtyard to early morning and management don’t control it.
