Take a peek and read what previous guests had to say about our beachfront Santa Monica hotel.
We have been to Santa Monica pier several times, so I was familiar with this hotel, as we passed by it on many of our visits. It's my 6 year anniversary and I wanted to make it special by staying near the beach and The Sea Blue Hotel came to mind. I called to see if they had any availability and spoke with Mari. She was very accommodating and went the extra mile to make our stay a memorable one. The rooms are cute and surfer themed, which is very appropriate for the area. We enjoyed a short walk to the beach and to the pier, the complimentary coffee and breakfast bars in the lobby were a nice touch. Both the staff that checked us in and out of the hotel wished my husband and I a happy anniversary. The location of the property will get you there, the customer service will bring you back! ~ Guest
Location is great with only 5min walk to Pier and 10mins to Third St Promenade. Venice is about 20min walk along beach. Have stayed many times, previously under the brand name Hotel California. Rooms renovated and a lot fresher looking but still has maintained the surfing theme. This is a 3star hotel so don/t expect 5star on 3star pricing. Staff great and we will stay again ~ Guest
