I stay here whenever I come to LA and it never disappoints. This most recent time I stayed for three nights. They were remodeling the lounge and other common areas, but they gave me a free upgrade so I really can’t complain. The rooms are exquisite and huge. They are done in a beach decor but it’s very luxurious and intimate at the same time. The real reason I always stay here and will continue coming back is the service. They know returning guests by name and greet everyone like they are a VIP guest. I look forward to coming back after they finish the remodeling to see how it turns out!

I travel to LA about a half dozen or so times a year but usually stay in Beverly Hills’ or downtown so I decided to try staying in Santa Monica for a change of scenery. Oceana came recommended by my agent and even though it was much more expensive than staying at one of my old haunts I loved the stay. If you have never been there before you wouldn’t necessarily know its hotel and it’s surrounded by small apartment buildings and blends in – the only giveaway is the valet stand outside. Inside is lovely, although they were finishing up a renovation when I was there. The girls at the front desk were very friendly and efficient. Rooms: big with lots of color. Well decorated and large rooms make you feel at home. Bathroom: clean and modern. The hotel itself (or what wasn’t under construction) is gorgeous. Really different but the small size also makes gives it a private touch. Very quiet area and safe. Staff is excellent all around. Only thing that bothered me was the weather. It rained almost the entire time I was there – not the hotels fault obviously – but sucked that I couldn’t enjoy the location as much. I would recommend this hotel highly if you can afford paying a little extra to stay here.

What a find! Great hotel just opposite the cliffs of the incline and Pacific Ocean and about a 10 minute walk to downtown Santa Monica. From the outside it looks more like a fancy apartment complex and sits among others just where the commercial area ends. At first I thought it was far away from the town but in fact its close enough to walk or bike (they let guests take them for free to cruise around) but you don’t have to listen to it when you are trying to rest. That said, they are in the middle of construction on the hotel so we tried to make sure we were out of the hotel during the day when it was going on and noisy. Stephanie at guest services was extremely helpful with reservations and left the sweetest note waiting for us in our room thanking us for staying there despite the construction and letting us know we could go to her with any issues. That was just one example of the brilliant service at the Oceana. All of the staff presented honest friendliness and were very helpful. Top notch across the board. Special touch was when the valet brought my cell phone that I had left charging in the car before I even asked. If after the renovations are complete the hotel looks as beautiful as the service is exceptional, this may just be my new favorite hotel.

Came here with the kids, wife and in laws for a family event happing in Santa Monica. The girl, who made our reservation, Lea, was so helpful and got us a kitchen suite with a pullout to accommodate for our week long stay with two kids fewer than 10. Very thoughtful and it ended up being the right call. It’s a very good hotel for families because of the big rooms and small facility and safe area meant it was easy to keep track of them and we felt very secure. There is a courtyard and pool right in the middle of the hotel and a small lounge restaurant as well. While we were there they had ongoing renovations going on so it was a little less than perfect but it didn’t end up affecting us much except for the lack of a pool which was a disappointment for the kids. Can’t say I felt the same but it would be nice not to have to look at a construction site going on. The great customer service continued beyond the booking through the entire vacation. One of the servers suggested we go walk down Montana St. for a more upscale shopping and less crowds than the promenade on third street. Good tip. Also suggested a good sushi restaurant about 15 minutes down the street for our night without the kids. Great tip. Very personalized and service-oriented. Not only did my wife and I get a personal apology about the in-progress condition of the pool and hotel during the construction from one of the women in management, but they gave us a few freebies to make up for it, including breakfasts and a discount on our next stay. In the end, the service we experienced more than compensated for any negative impacts the construction had.

This was my first time staying at this hotel and I was there for just a one night stay. The hotel was under construction at the time, something I wasn’t told when I booked the room, however it ended up being no big deal. The pool area was a little disconcerting as it was the most unfinished area but the service more than makes up for the ongoing renovations. Caroline at the desk was very welcoming and friendly, the server at breakfast was also wonderful. The breakfast at the hotel is really good, 100 percent worth it. It’s a small buffet but everything is fresh with very high food quality. Really good scrambled eggs and fresh pressed juice. The rooms are amazing! They are big and well designed. It’s pretty much the size of a one bedroom apartment with a sitting area and large bathroom. Beds are comfy and other than the construction going on the rest of the hotel was very clean. No issues other than the work, so I would definitely stay here again.

My husband kids and I stayed here from the 20th through the 22nd while in LA and everything was wonderful from the service to the accommodations. It’s a small hotel right on Ocean Avenue so it’s overlooking the beach and coastline. Really gorgeous spot and it’s not a long walk over to the local attractions: promenade, downtown Santa Monica, beach. It’s a little further if you want to go to the pier or Venice beach but still easily reached on a bike or a 15-20 minute walk. Service was excellent the entire time. When we arrived the management left champagne for us and cookies for the kids – very sweet – along with a handwritten welcome note. Valet stand employees including Brice were very helpful and sweet with our kids when we were getting outfitted with the hotels complimentary bikes. I love the decor in the rooms. Bright, cheery and very appropriate for the beachside location. Also loved the toiletries and wonderful towels. Luxury all the way but still kid friendly hotel. Can’t wait to come back on our next trip.
