First of all, the Bayside Hotel is infact a motel. Despite being named Bayside Hotel, it infact has the layout of a Super 8/Motel 6. Good points first: The hotel provided adequate free parking, which was useful as the parking elsewhere wasnt too cheap. The rooms were clean, reasonably sized and had a seperate bathroom (small to medium in size,...

The Bayside Hotel is just about what its website says it is: across the street from the beach, competitive in price, walking distance to the main, upscale shopping and restaurant district of Santa Monica, just south of the Pier. There is also a great bike and running/walking path along the beach for miles in each direction. It really is an...

Reviewed 3 November 2008

I was disappointed when I checked in to this hotel as the rooms were in serious need of an update. It felt like a shabby motel with peeling walls and a worn carpet. On the surface the room and bathroom appeared relatively clean, but I didn't feel particularly comfortable sleeping there nor taking a shower. I also note previous review...

We stayed at Bayside for 3 nights in Septmeber 2008 and we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very close to the beach and pier, but if I were to go to Santa Monica again I think I would prefer to stay nearer to the 3rd Street Promenade for the restaurants and atmosphere at night - the walk over to...

Balcony Views are wonderful & is close to the Beach & Santa Monica Pier. Needs a remodel badly, although cleaning crew does a great job. To cool off at night, windows have to be open - these are the old crank out 50's style, I didn't feel secure. Parking is terrible- A GEM car is almost too big for their...

Dear longljl, I am glad you enjoyed our views and the Santa Monica beaches.

This place really needs an upgrade and it is overpriced. We had a double room in the garden for two nights. One side of the room was facing the backyard parking and a very noisy street.

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.
