After a quick visit this morning to Outlets in Orange (return some purchases, make some purchases) we grabbed a taxi and said 'Hasta la vista' to Anaheim and Disneyland and its too hot weather, and 'hello lovely' to Santa Monica and her cool people, lovely ocean views and best of all REAL COFFEE!!! We couldn't find decent coffee anywhere in Anaheim …

... right path to where ever I am going, its where all of my passions and dreams
are amplified.

I met Ann’s beautiful Momma at the arrival hall and we walked out to catch a cab, to the
right of me a police car and some policemen. All I could think of was super troopers
and running up to them to say meow, nimbly bimbly and doing a cartwheel… but I
contained my excitement and imagined it instead, boring I know. After absorbing my surroundings ...

... country; it's large or large! Bellies sufficiently stuffed we turned in for the night. Hannah: The following day we played the typical tourists - even down to our outfit selections. We proudly donned American tops whilst seeing the Hollywood sights with a 'Los Angeles Sightseeing' tour. Our first stop was rather stalker-like as we spent the morning driving down Sunset Strip and Westwood Village keeping our eyes peeled for celebrities. Unfortunately, 9am on a Saturday morning ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Oceana Beach Club Hotel Santa Monica

    Very nice experience!

    from

    My husband and I spent 4 nights here last week on our first trip to Santa Monica. We found the staff to be helpful, friendly, and accommodating. We booked an oceanview suite, which we were happy with. On the 2nd day we had a bad "bug invasion" and management moved and upgraded us to an oceanview suite with balcony and jacuzzi tub for no additional charge. This was a great location - not too far from 3rd Street Promenade and the Pier. In agreement with other reviews, the soundproofing between walls and floors could be better. Overall - we were very satisfied with our experience at this hotel and would not only stay here again but recommend it to others.

    Don't go for ocean view

    from

    We just arrived from Santa Barbara, and we first book to the OCEANA hotel with ocean view for $300. When we arrived, we were extremaly desapointed, our Ocean view room was hidden by a big fountain in the main patio. The room was very nice, but we were expecting a real ocean view + some privacy, which is not really possible with thin walls (very noisy could hear people speaking) ....

    the ocean view is ... the harbor or the pier, but not a dream hotel..

    Relaxing refuge in Santa Monica

    from

    We stayed here for three nights over the July 4 weekend and were very pleased for the most part. We had an ocean view suite with a porch and were very pleased with the room and the amenities. We always prefer to stay in inns and small hotels, and most of the higher end places in Santa Monica are pretty big. The beach is a 5 minute walk away; there is a bridge across the Pacific Coast Highway right across the street from the hotel.

    Avoid Unless You Have Clout

    from

    When we arrived we were informed that our reservations had been cancelled by someone I had never heard of before. When pressed, the arrogant desk person reluctantly told me that I had been bumped because someone famous decided they wanted our room but that they would give us their "hold one in reserve" room if we wanted it.

    LOVED IT

    from

    My boyfriend and I stayed here from May 15th until May 18th of 2004. This hotel is the best! Extremely CLEAN and COMFORTABLE! The beds are like being at home, and the hotel is in a great residential location that has a beautiful view of the ocean and quick access to it. I can't say anymore about it, everything about this hotel is great! It's in a nice quiet area, but yet only minutes from rodeo drive and hollywood, it's an awesome get away and I will ONLY stay here when I travel to L.A. from now on!!!!

    Lovely Cannes type hotel

    from

    I visit Santa Monica often and always wind up switching hotels to stay here when I try a new hotel. The notion of a viable suite where you can cook in and eat in occasionally, is well understood here and the appointments are bright and very French...the colors are great and the Inn is stylish. It is no more than 1/4 miles to the pier and has wonderful access to the ocean promenade. The linens have always been perfect. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. It is like coming home to stay here. Yes, the pool is small but for what you get, so is the price for the area. You can park on the street easily and save the valet price too. My only honest gripe is the noise from the floor above.. esp if they have kids..stay on the top floor if you can, and get an ocean view. The pool view rooms are a bit dark. Still, to me, this is a great place for longer stays and total comfort...and very lovely too. As a seasoned traveler, you can't beat this for Santa Monica.

    Would stay here again!

    from

    After spending 3 nights at the Del Coronado in San Diego, the Oceana was a welcome relief! The staff is friendly and very helpful, the suite very spacious, clean and comfortable. Valet parking was terrific even when we needed our vehicle at 4:30 AM to drive to the Tournament of Roses Parade. Located in a quiet, residential neighborhood across from the beach and within walking distance to Montana St. shops and the Third St. Promenade. Would definitely stay here again!

    Don't go for a nights sleep!!

    Perfect for family trip

    from

    Great linens, aveda products, nice kitchenette... perfect studio size.

    Only drawback, small pool and too far to walk to Santa Monica Pier.

    Great location otherwise; near Montana Ave...highly recommend it, and I am picky!

    Wonderful Stay

    from

    We had a wonderful stay. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds were heaven! Great location, close to the beach and downtown. The first room we stayed in was a bright red color, and I hate red, but the front desk agents found a room that was perfect for me! It was like they knew me and exactly what i wanted! Would definitely recommend. What else can i say??? The BEDS were like sleeping on a cloud!
