Historical Traveler Reviews Bayside Hotel Santa Monica
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!
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
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
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
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
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
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!
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.
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.
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

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.
Woke up at 5:30 am to catch the 6:40 am train to Fallowfield near Ottawa. Little did we know the hassles that lay ahead. VIA Rail's 18 Kg limit was going to be a challenge for Daisy but she managed to get …
When Tim and I woke up this morning at 4 a.m, I didn't have my mind set on leaving the hotel room at all today. But what's the fun in that? In the 3 weeks I have been here in Sunny California I have spent maybe a total of 2 hours a day, ( besides sleeping and waiting for Tim), at the hotel. I'm usually here before 4 to take a shower and get dinner ready. Tim walked out the door and I put on Facebook "not doing anything today, too sore". Then my coffee kicked in. I ...
... without scaring everybody else off. Our first hand example is of seeing a guy just casually toking on his crack pipe a couple of feet away from us in broad daylight when we were sat on some bleachers. Rather than stop smoking crack when he noticed us watching (god forbid), he just slowly pulled his t-shirt up and over his head to create his very own one man crack den which he then emerged from a few minutes later when done. Stealthy. Our fun evening was somewhat ...
... about four hundred passengers, blocked the aisles. Rows 70 and 71 were our homes for the next thirteen hours. Back this far you are in the tail section so the seating goes 2-5-2 rather than 3-5-3 and we are in the pairs. There is a space next to the window. Very nice but we couldn't all get together so the kids are on the left and Rosie and Angus the right of the plane.
... L After spending an hour watching 2-5 tonne male elephant seals launch themselves at each other gnashing and bellowing before collapsing exhausted 10 seconds later (it was mating season, thank god I’m not a female sea lion…) and feeling nostalgic for the Galapagos, we decided to drive to the furthest stop we could, (who thankfully had petrol as realised halfway there our light was flashing!) before turning back to the main highway. After chatting to some locals ...
