Close to all activities The lobby and 1st floor have been renovated but the rooms could use some love. The bathrooms are small and have been updated but the bedroom area is just ok. Don’t bother paying for the partial ocean view as you are then just right on the highway. I had a hard time sleeping with the vintage ac unit ...

Spacious 'apartment-like' room in a great locationWe stayed here and we were pleasantly surprised at how large the rooms are. This room felt like an apartment it was so large. The wood floors probably helped there too. We had a full kitchen (they included glasses, bowls, full fridge, stove top, etc). The room could sleep 6 people (There's one sofa ...

Good value in a very expensive areaI picked this hotel because of price. Hotels closer to the beach are so expensive. It ended up being very good. It was clean. Public areas were nice.

You know the familiar melody of the beach: seagulls soaring overhead, the "slurp" of your nicely chilled drink, and the sound of the surf splashing on the shore. Yes, many people have dreams of weekends near the shore. There is something for everyone near the ocean, whether you want to walk the boardwalk in search of saltwater taffy or enjoy the sun on the soft sand. As an extra perk, you'll get to know many other day-trippers to trade tales with in Santa Monica.

We have what you're in search of. It's easy to see why Santa Monica was one of the world's most visited beach bookings last year. You'll find numerous Santa Monica beach hotels on our site, and you can be assured you'll certainly find top-notch extras like blankets and bath products to rinse away the sea salt.

Get Your Ideal Santa Monica Beach Hotel

Wondering where you can see the coolest birds, or which Santa Monica hotel has a superb balcony? (Because sometimes, you just can't make yourself go even a few minutes to the beach!) Well lucky you. Santa Monica welcomed thousands of adventurers during the last twelve months, and you can note Expedia customers' information on hotels near the beach in our review section.

We should tell you: Beach hotels in Santa Monica offer everything you could wish for to create the best beach vacation you've ever known. It’s no surprise they were granted a spectacular overall rating, and you'll find the hotel's setting about as beautiful as the shore. There can be adventures that go well beyond suntans and sandy toes, too, in such a populous town.

Now Is the Best Time to Book

Can you think of anything that will loosen you up more than sun-filled fun? Expedia is here for you with the best deals for Santa Monica beach hotels. It's one region that has seen slightly less enthusiasm during the last 12 months—it's a great moment to book. Then prepare to pay a visit to The Dogtown. It's been expecting you.
