    Historical Traveler Reviews Bayside Hotel Santa Monica

    Fantastic

    from

    Great staff,very helpful.Clean rooms and wonderful staff ,did I already say that?Location,location, location!Price affordable for single mum from oz during autumn.One step from glorious Pacific Ocean sunsets!

    Great Hotel!

    from

    The Bayside is in a perfect location to walk to the beach, pier, and other Santa Monica attractions. We were also able to walk to the nearby busline, which brought us to Venice Beach within minutes. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable. No frills, but otherwise very nice. The view from the front deck is breathtaking! If you get a room with a patio, I suggest requesting one up front or else you're basically in an alleyway. :( The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful...I would definitely stay here again. :)

    Great View, Great Location

    from

    We stayed just one night (would have stayed more) and our expierience at Bayside Hotel in Santa Monica CA left us feeling very satisfied, you definetly get your money's worth. Granted Bayside is not a luxurious hotel, but for young or old travelers looking for a budget room you can't go wrong with Bayside. Without frills, but with a great location (Santa Monica pier, downtown shopping, 3rd st. promenade etc. all short walks away) and an old 50's look (very clean) bayside is where it's at. I would reccomend this hotel to my traveling friends and family any day.

    Great Location, Cute Room, Good Experience

    from

    All in all this was a great stay. The room was clean, comfortable and we had plenty of room. The ocean view from our picture window was worth the extra money. Outside our room were umbrella tables where we spent time drinking coffee and planning the day. We waked to Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, Third Street Promenade, dining and more. We would definitely stay here again. (Be sure to have breakfast at the Omlette Parlor!)

    Now that's what I call vacation

    from

    Rent a ocean view room with kitchen and you have one of the most pleasant hotel rooms in Santa Monica, relax in front of your room an watch the Pacific, get a glass of California wine or ice cold beer and just relax. Not for everyone, no restaurant or bar, but if you like to prepare oyur own food, dtive to the next Von's or bette to an helath food supermarket at Broadway and habe your daily feast with ocean view. Will always come back

    Disappointing

    from

    I, along with two friends, stayed at the Bayside Hotel for Spring Break. To start off, the web site is very misleading. Our room was plain and simply discusting. The room was dirty and old. Our door did not have a dead bolt, only a regular door lock, so at night we would jam a chair in the door. The windows were old, and one was painted shut. The walls were dirty with fingerprints on them. No air-conditioning, just a old fan that I thought was going to fall on us at night. The bathroom, however, was actually ok. The hotel is close to the ocean, but there is nothing going on in that area. It was very cheap, so I guess you get what you pay for. I would never stay at this hotel again.

    Good service, great area

    from

    Rooms are clean, staff is friendly. Great thing about this hotel is that parking is included with the room, unusual in the Santa Monica area that you don't have to pay for parking. Close to the beach and only a five minute drive (if not less) to the pier and the promanade.

    Staff is wonderful in making sure you have what you need when you need it. Rates are a little high but the rooms are clean and in good order.

    I stay here every time I come to Santa Monica which is once a month.

    Dire - only one mark for staff!

    from

    Arrived June 2003 for three nights. Stayed only one and one too many.

    Not cheap - to be fair far from expensive either but was expecting something like their inviting images shown on their website, only to be bitterly dissapointed. Rooms were jaded and need a thorough overhaul.

    Staff were only plus point as they were considerate - save your money and go to a motel where you will find higher standards.

    Stay here

    from

    The people in reception were really friendly and helpfull we liked it so much we stayed an extra night. The room was nice and clean the toilet didn't work but as soon as we reported it they fixed it straight away.

    It was in a really nice area and had a good car park.

    Would definitely stay there again.

    No Parking

    from

    My experience of Bayside,

    Only One key

    No Air Conditioning in my room

    Shampoo and conditioner combination very cheap

    More room than parking places, so many people

    had to park on the street.

    Checkin 3:00 pm checkout 11:00 am, so if you come

    early you cannot check in!!

    I am not returning.

    Close to beach

    A Challenging Day just Travelling

    Warning, no photos today, it's more of a rant and do not read any further if you don't want to hear about what can go wrong when travelling.

We went down Rodeo Drive where the rich & famous purchase their clothing and was featured in the movie Pretty Woman. We walked down the 'Walk of Fame' on Hollywood Boulevard where all the old and new movie stars have their names engraved in stars in the side walk. Billy Graham was also one of those.

    Our next dilemma was a double booking with our hire car which we didn't realise was the same day. Anyway that was ...
