    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

    Slept in until 3pm!! What?!? Everyone was so tired from the flight.. Taxi to WB VIP tour in Burbank. Excellent.. Saw fake town sets - currently dressing the town for show called Hart of Dixie. Big Bang Theory were filming at the time! But no stars were seen, just flash cars parked out front of studio. Chuck Lorre had his own massive block ...

    The Wynn casino was already buzzing at this time. Not sure whether this was people from the night before or just early-rising addicts, but there were players on the blackjack, roulette, ***** and poker tables and some of them seemed to be winning already by the sounds of the whoops and cheers coming from one of the tables. The whole city operates a policy of having ...

    I woke up nice and early to the sound of birdsong (a crow cawing actually). It took me a while to identify my alarm clock because their pitch here is a couple of tones higher. Jas and Charlie had taken off to their festival in Vegas around 5am to avoid the LA morning freeway gridlock leaving me to wander around their beautiful condo scantily attired. In order to wake myself up I did about half an hour's yoga that helped work out a few kinks and tight spots left over from the ...

    ... unhelpful and unpleasant American at the information counter (never has the term 'information counter' been less appropriate!) Understandably, it was sweet relief to arrive at our hostel that was located in the heart of Santa Monica. Determined to conquer our jet lag, Han and I were up and out wanting to explore our new surroundings. We saw swanky shops, flash cars, indulgent purchasing and an abundance of bars and restaurants that sell the largest portions known to man. That ...

    We were up and about early the next day and caught the train to the "Downtown" area before taking a shuttle bus to a shopping outlet centre. Our plan was to do some shopping in the morning before heading to a nearby hotel that was hosting the final of the worlds strongest man 2014! However much to our disappointment the day we chose to go the ...
