    Families will appreciate the hotel's beachside location and family-friendly amenities like the heated outdoor wading pool and complimentary beach cruiser bikes, guided hikes and surf lessons. The 70-room Oceana Beach Club Hotel only has two adjoining room options, so if you know you'll need more space for your brood, notify the hotel upon booking.

    The Ambrose
    Santa Monica, CA
    3.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1440 reviewsTripAdvisor (1440)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Situated in a quiet, serene area of Santa Monica, California, The Ambrose charms guests with an updated and eco-friendly atmosphere. Guests looking for some relaxation, the hotel’s elegant rooms come equipped with luxury linens, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access. Start your day with complimentary continental breakfast before working up a sweat at the fitness center. Alternatively, catch up on emails at the business center (both are open 24/7). If you’re looking to explore, jump on one of the house bicycles (first come, first served) or take the house electric car service to attractions within a 3-mile radius of the property, including downtown Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Pier. Upon return, wind down at the on-site bar and lounge serving drinks and snacks. Recent guests applaud the ease of on-site parking (albeit for a fee), but they note that the rooms along the alley can be a little noisy because of commercial traffic.
