The only good thing about this hotel is it’s location. It’s .5 mi from Santa Monica pier. Otherwise, really nothing special and we won’t be staying again. If you want to park at the hotel you’re staying at, this ISNT the place for you. The parking spots (there are only MAYBE 10 at the hotel) and sizes for extreme COMPACT CARS ONLY. We tried to park our rental van and ended up damaging our car trying to park. We had three small kids and our only other option was to park down the road in a parking structure (?!?!?!) ... honestly that’s ridiculous for how much we paid. Parking is also an additional $25/night... if they have room and IF your car fits. Don’t try to push it and end up having to pay your $500 insurance deductible. It was $280 for the room for the night. We had a “suite”. It was two queen beds and one single bed. The room(s) were tiny and there honestly were no “amenities”. This is WAY too much for what we ended up with. Santa Monica is beautiful... but stay somewhere else if you have kids. The only way I see this place working is if you drive a miata or something similar in size, and you have no kids. It overpriced for what you get.

Just flew into town for a quick business trip, Checkin at the property, very nice room, the Wi-Fi solid and fast, made my work easy. There’s a great little bar restaurant Chez Jay‘s on property so the meal was excellent, had a good night sleep in a comfortable bed. Checked out the next morning staff was great they held my bags all day while I went to my meeting came back the end of the day flew back home. Next time I’m in town I’ll be back again. Thank you Ocean Lodge

Pros: 2 bedrooms
Cons: Everything
Location: Close to Santa Monica pier
This is an old hotel with very old and dirty carpet, old comforters/blankets, felt like old flat pillows and hadn't been dusted in years. The room had no window to close in the bathroom, just a screen and a levered glass slats so it was extremely noisy. I liked that there were 2 bedrooms but that's all I liked. The bathroom itself was 'fairly' clean. For $300/night, it is was Horrible.

Fair zero-service option near beach

Pros: Location.
Cons: Detailed above: the service is utterly ramshackle.
Location: As a beer lover I would always recommend Father's Office, Library Alehouse and Daily Pint, though none is quite walking distance.
This is a ramshackle operation at a great location. The hours that the staff is in attendance seem purely whimsical - so they'll remind you at checkin of coffee/pastries every morning in the office, but good luck getting in there. (Fortunately, there is a coffee machine in your room - oh, but wait, they didn't remember to provide the coffee!) For the first time, on this trip I was burdened with a car and the night manager offered me a plan for stowing it economically nearby for a day and a half - except, that as I found out when I checked out, the plan didn't work at all and I ended up in a mad scramble that made me later for my meetings. Bottom line: as long as your needs are utterly basic, the place is fine. That was my experience prior visit. But if there is any complication whatsoever -- good luck with that! And you're blessed to be able to stroll across the street to the Loews Hotel for your coffee, great wifi and gorgeous ocean view.

It was a convenient location for me.

Pros: The staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was clean, the linens were in good condition, and the bed comfortable.
Cons: I can't think of anything. It suited me perfectly.
Location: I live in Los Angeles. The only reason I had a hotel overnight was because of evening meetings and early morning meetings.
Everything worked well for me. It was very close to where I had meetings.

Great Location

Pros: Location
Cons: TV guide
Location: Beach across the street. Promenade within walking distance. Restaurants , bars galore nearby
Wanted a hotel in Santa Monica area, close to the action as I was visiting my son for the weekend who had recently relocated.... This fit the bill. Since little time was spent in the room, I needed location convenience with little need for amenities or frills. Nice clean place to stay....WITH PARKING.
