This is an older property but they did a pretty good job on the remodel. Room had current decor and was very clean but very Small -including the bathroom. Pedistal sink and no counter space for toiletries. Great access to walk ways and the beach! Was disappointed about hidden fees, tacked on that were not mentioned in the reservation, especially the parking fee which you are stuck with unless you want to go put money in a parking meter every 5 hours. Over all very nice but be prepared for higher cost.

Beautiful hotel. Close to everything.

Bayside hotel was a smart choice.. located in front of a park that is just steps away from the beach. Great location.!! The rooms are beautiful, very comfortable. The only thing was that the person checking us in was pretty rude and inpatient. But besides that, I had a great experience at the hotel.

What a great location!

Pros: The location and front desk staff.
Cons: The walls were quite thin. Sounds from outside and other rooms were loud.
Location: Walking distance to the Santa Monica Pier and 3rd St. Promenade (lots of shopping) and restaurants. Rode bikes to Venice Beach and Marina Del Rey.
This hotel was a pleasant surprise! They allowed my daughter and I to check in a little early. This room was very cute and clean. The front desk staff was helpful in recommending things to do in the area and provided us with everything we needed. Parking was tight, but there seemed to plenty of it. We rented bikes from the hotel. They were in good shape and we were provided a lock. A beach with lifeguards was right out the front door.

pretty old

Had ocean view room which have no air-cond. Dbl. bed w/hardly any room to move around; stained chair & asked for another, they never brought one; 19"" tv. We stayed at 4 hotels along the coast, this was the most expensive & smallest w/least facilities. Only hotel where you pay 4/ice. GOOD - free parking in back; most have to pay 4/parking at other hotels & nice view, was clean.

Wonderful little place

Quaint and clean, I really liked this motel. We walked everywhere, to the Pier, great nearby restaurants and stores. We felt safe at night. A comfortable room and nice service. We would rather stay here than at Lowes if you can believe that. The price was perfect for our budget and we had an ocean view room. We were smiling the whole time we were there. I hope you have a great experience too. The only thing we didn't like was having to leave.
