Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It must be on the list as the most vibrant and joyful street in Santa Monica. Summer is amazing there and it was the best weather ever in Los Angeles. The beach, the restaurants, the pictures, and the vibes are exquisite.

Its beautiful I have to agree but there is tons of homeless people now sleeping on the grass at the best spots. Well I don't blame them. Theres 60000 bums in LA and that's one of the best places to crash so why not hey? Why is that? Unaffordable housing, no centers for people with mental issues, tons of drug abuse...Things are gonna get worse before they get better. So don't be surprised if you're a little shocked when you get there.

We rented electric bikes from LYFT, and rode down along the ocean from Santa Monica, to Venice Beach. Definitely reccomended

Whether taking Uber or driving or walking, traveling along Ocean is easy. There are so many things to see and do along here.

This place was a ghost town on a Thursday evening at 10pm - restaurants were virtually all closed and no pedestrians in sight aside from countless homeless people.

Was it like this before COVID?

Such a prime located and beautiful area that could be much better utilized for pedestrians who seek that “walkability” missing from most of LA.

Our hotel was on Ocean Ave. We walked to the beach, had a couple nights of great dinners. Lots of people walking around day and night.

The selection of restaurants and shops is amazing. You really don’t have to leave the area to enjoy your trip it has it all. Only thing is homelessness is a problem here.

The views of the ocean are great! A nice gentle walk above the ocean. Beware of dogs and homeless people sleep sleeping on the grass.

Stroll along the Pacific Palisades and gaze at the open top convertible automobiles as they drive past. Or better still, drive your own car along one of the most iconic roads in the world.

This is a lovely place to walk. The ocean view extends to the horizon and sunsets are amazing. Just watch out for dog do on the grass. Many people walk their dogs here and some are not responsible enough to pick up after their pet.
