Bayside Hotel, Santa Monica
Two days in Santa Monica
The location could not have been better! The rooms are small and the ventilation poor despite a ceiling fan and AC. The AC was noisy. We could not open our window as the guests next door to us were smoking outside.

Very poor
Not happy. I paid $70 for tax and amenities. Don’t know what the amenities were. Parking was $32 per day. There were only 18 parking spots. The second night I had to park on the street. The room was cramped and the bathroom had no counter to put my shaving kit. The bars of soap were the size of a fifty cent piece. I’ve stayed at a lot of hotels, but this hotel was definitely NOT a $250.00 a night room. I’m not very happy and will never use again.

Older building but very very nice. Very comfortable sleep. Great location right across the street from the beach

Bayside Hotel, Santa Monica
I loved everything about the Bayside Hotel! Plenty of fun things to do and beautiful things to see within walking distance such as the beach, bike riding, scooter, walking, jogging, Santa Monica Pier, very talented entertainment along the walk way, plenty of places to eat. Like Arnold Schwarzenegger says: "I'll Be Back!"
