The hotel was great and I do not have any complaints. The hotel has a great ocean view and was pretty clean. I would recommend staying at this hotel again but it is a little expensive but so is everything else in Santa Monica.

Spent a couple days here during Thanksgiving week and it was perfect. Great restaurants nearby and the pier is directly across the street. Got amazing ocean pictures from the balcony. The balcony is small and required a bit of moving around to get in and out the door, but was fine once you are settled. Highly recommend.

Perfect spot, only a few minute walk to the Pier, beach and restaurants. We got a ocean view room, watching a beautiful sunset from the the balcony was cool. Staff was amazing and very quick to get us anything we needed.

I booked a reservation through Hotels.com for a weekend in November 2021 with Ocean View Hotel. A month before my reservation dates I canceled the trip (well within the cancelation policy). Come to find out Ocean View Hotel charged me for a one-night stay. Inquiring about the charge I reached out to Hotels.com and Ocean View Hotel to ask for a refund and make them aware of the mistake. Ocean View Hotel said they didn't charge me anything and Hotels.com backed the story and said nothing was being refunded (even with proof). Ocean View Hotel even sent me an email with an invoice for the dates of the reservation showing me they charged $0. I sent emails to both Ocean View Hotel and Hotels.com with proof of being charged $424.23 on my bank statements. It has now been over 7 days without a response from either Hotels.com or Ocean View Hotel. Poor experience from both companies and won't be utilizing either of these companies going forward.

No access to the fridge, no microwave in the room, and the room phone did not work to call down to the front desk. Plenty of overpriced snacks on display directly in the room. Not the family friendly place we were looking for.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review. We apologize for the shortcomings that you experienced during your stay here with us. We do have a microwave in the lobby and minifridge in the rooms that can be used by our guests as the items for sell can be removed and placed to the side. We offer snacks and drinks in the rooms as a convenience for our guests, but those items can be removed upon request. We apologize again that this was not the stay that you were looking for as we strive to accommodate all of our guests.
