Top tips for finding the perfect Santa Monica hotel

Downtown Santa Monica contains many of the city’s main attractions, such as the Santa Monica Pier, so consider booking a hotel near this area to be centrally located.
A short walk from the restaurants and amusement park rides situated on the Santa Monica Pier, The Sea Blue Hotel is an excellent hotel in this area.
Much of Santa Monica is located on a bluff overlooking the ocean, so hotels here are usually either situated directly on the beach or offer ocean views.
Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel offers upscale accommodations two blocks from the beach, while the more affordable Bayside Hotel offers views of the ocean.
Visitors seeking a budget hotel should look at least a mile from the beach. The Santa Monica Motel is an affordable choice that provides guests with free parking.
If you’re interested in doing a bit of shopping during your stay, book a hotel located near Montana Avenue, such as the 4-star Palihouse Santa Monica.
To stay near public transportation, consider a hotel along the Expo Line light-rail route, which runs between Santa Monica and downtown Los Angeles. Wyndham Santa Monica At The Pier is a good option along this line.
