Lovely Cannes type hotel A review of Oceana Beach Club Hotel
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.
