The service was faultless, with them giving me free toothpaste mouthwash, biscuits and magazines. Everything was spotless with cute shell-shaped toiletries. We had an unexpected large tv. Plus its 5mins walk fron the beach and santa monica strip. At £50 a night its not cheap for a motel, but due to the location I'd definitely come back

No its not the Ritz, but this motel is clean, comfortable and in the best location you could ask for in Santa Monica. Literally 2 minute walk to the pier, 5 mins from Santa Monica Boulevard. A group of us stayed in a 3 bed family room which was perfect for one night. Loved Santa Monica and loved this hotel....

We had a family of 5 and the room was perfect - separate room for the adults and room with TV and beds for 3 kids. The parking was extra, but it was so nice to just WALK to everything we wanted to do near the Pier. We stayed two nights and it was just perfect for us. The staff...

I Stayed at the Ocean Lodge for 2 nights. It was a perfectly functional motel. The room was reasonably sized, everything including the bathroom was spotless and there was free wifi with reasonable speed. The staff were lovely, quite helpful with organizing taxis etc. This is not somewhere you go to hang out ; but it is an inexpensive place...

We just recently stayed at the Ocean Lodge Hotel for Spring Break. Overall it was just okay. We stayed in the Deluxe Junior Suite With Three Beds. While pretty small, it fit all of us. Storage is a huge problem. There is one dresser with 3 small drawers. Not enough for five people for a week long stay. There is...

I have just spent 7 days at the Ocean Lodge and it was everything I needed for my stay. That is to say, a clean room, comfortable bed and easy reach of all that West LA has to offer on your doorstep. I have stayed in much more expensive hotels in Santa Monica and, whilst they are pretty cool, I...

I am giving this motel four stars not because it is a four star hotel, because it plainly is not, but because of the price and location. It is a very plain and simple road-side type motel, but it is about one block from the beach, and one block from the Santa Monica pier, on Ocean Avenue. It is right...

I stayed for a second time at the Ocean lodge and my stay was as nice as the first time. Very nice location, onsite parking and a very nice restaurant within 50 ft of the hotel.

Because of the nature of my work, which involves a lot of traveling, I have had the opportunity to stay in hotels of all ranges, from 5-star ones to inexpensive motels. However, I can say with all my experience that the Ocean Lodge Hotel is by far the worst one I have had the misfortune of staying in. Did you...

We couldn't have picked a better hotel and it was significantly less expensive than most in the area (and most of them were much further from the Pier). It's an old motel, but they are renovating all the rooms. Ours was spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable (and not sagging) and the linens were good -- looked fairly new. My...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
