Best oceanfront hotel in Santa Monica

Feb 24th, 2020

The Bayside Hotel is an absolute gem. The staff led by General Manager Robert Bargas is friendly, attentive, courteous and first class. The rooms are spotless with a casual beach simplicity. The location cannot be beat. Especially if you love the beach.I return and will continue to return to this gem of a property. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Location.

Dec 17th, 2019

This Hotel is close proximity to the beach boardwalk only a block away and 10 minute walk to Santa Monica Pier, but for the prices and the amenities it's pretty average. We had a room with a small kitchen on the parking lot side, There were a few issues/complaints that we had. Loud! Walls are paper thin and can hear everything, especially people yelling from roadway and the traffic as well. The stains on the window coverings were gross, The bathroom fixtures were in need of some repair and maintenance. The first night we tried to have a shower and couldnt get any warm water! It worked the other 2 days on our stay. No microwave in the kitchen was kind of a disappointment with having the kitchen. Also no clocks in the room. Our family would not stay here again. Nor recommend this hotel unless the cleanliness improved and maintenance was completed. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Nice Spot

Dec 2nd, 2019

Nice room in a good position but overpriced for what it is IMO. 4pm check in was a bit hard as well. Very clean room and well set out. Really impressed with the staff outside. Blocked the toilet in the first 5 minutes there and the handyman was a legend. Santa Monica is a great spot if you want to walk but a long way out of the city. Hop on Hop off bus comes past but not worth the price IMO. I enjoyed the area though. Homeless issue down on the beach is sad but not once did I feel threatened or scared. It was cold when I was there and the beaches empty. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

A Gem of a Motel

Nov 24th, 2019

Great place. Great location. Great people. This is Route 66 revisited with an updated motel that is a great value and within sight distance of the ocean. Near the Santa Monica Pier and a short walk to Venice Beach. I’ll be back as soon as I can! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

great location

Nov 23rd, 2019

The location cannot be beat. I think this is the "best value" hotel for the location. However, it is motel-style with very bright lights right outside the windows that have no blackout curtains. The lights are on all night for security reasons so I could not sleep at all. The walls are thin and it's definitely a 2-star, not a 3. It was fairly clean but the mirror could have been cleaner, there were some crumbs in the ice bucket, and the bathroom fan was VERY loud (but at least it had one). I would stay there again if they upgrade the curtains. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
