One word- tranquil. The minute you walk in, you're met with a bright blue wall fountain and pops of turquoise are scattered throughout. The lobby is comprised of glass paned windows that let in a lot of natural light and take advantage of the spectacular ocean view. There are tall stalks of bamboo when you exit the elevator to your room and the decor is contemporary and chic, there's no pool but let's face it you're right by the ocean. Besides for the ocean, you're within walking distance to the pier, the third street promenade and the newly renovated Tongva Park.

The Ocean View always had one of the best locations on the Westside and now after a recent remodel, it has the looks to compete with the trendier boutiques in the area. The three-star hotel went through a top-to-bottom makeover worthy of a home improvement reality show. The rooms are still standard in size, but the blue and white accented decor looks modern and feels fresh. There are no amenities (uh, the beach is across the street) outside of parking (worth as much as gold in this area), so the $22 valet charge is more gift than curse. The breath-taking views have not changed so splurge the extra on an ocean-side room. The prime location has something for everyone within a block: Santa Monica Pier for the kids. Santa Monica Place for the shoppers. Ma’Kai (next door) for clubbers and Red O for foodies.

The Ocean View Hotel has upped it's game. How could it not? It's sister hotel is the really nice Shores Hotel just up the street on Ocean Avenue. The Ocean View has gone through a complete remodel. The lobby is now super inviting with great loungy chairs & a water fountain wall. Locationwise it doesn't get any better. Your front door takes you right on Ocean Avenue with the Pacific Ocean directly out front. There's a community center across the street. You're on the same block as some amazing new restaurants..my fave Watergrill just down the street. Great shopping is nearby. Santa Monica Place is 2 blocks away which has a Nordstroms & Bloomingdales. The Third Street Promenade is also 2 blocks away, as is the famed Santa Monica Pier. The rooms are completely redone & modern with nice beds & nice updated bathrooms. It's a complete overhaul of what it used to be, to now rival any fine Ocean Avenue hotel. Directly next door is MaKai restaurant. You can enjoy your stay without ever having to rent a car. Rent a bike at the beach, go for a run or a long walk. Venice is just a 20 minute walk away.

The rooms & amenities are not great but the location is awesome: the Pier, the Promenade, and the Santa Monica Place are all within walking distance of the hotel.
