The Ocean Lodge Hotel: 
Stellar Location & Rates


It's hard to beat the Ocean Lodge Hotel when it comes to reasonably priced Santa Monica accommodations within walking distance of top Santa Monica attractions. 

This low-rise, 1950s-era hotel just a block from the beach offers bargain rates, a prime location, and clean, comfy guest rooms. 

That's not an easy feat in usually spendy Santa Monica, but the Ocean Lodge Hotel pulls it off to perfection.

The Ocean Lodge sits boldly among the newer luxury hotels on Ocean Avenue, a testament to just how much Santa Monica has changed over the past half-century.

It is just a two-minute stroll from the Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica Aquarium, and the beach. 



It's also a short walk from the popular Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Place outdoor shopping centers, where you'll find some of the best shopping, entertainment, and restaurants in Santa Monica.

Which provides another opportunity to save money: Once you arrive, you won't need a rental car to get around.

The Ocean Lodge is also adjacent to the Tongva Park, the city's newest park that is home to a bubbling fountain, state-of-the-art playground, and a picture-perfect overlook of Santa Monica beach framed by a towering steel art sculpture.

The laid-back, California-beach-style hotel has been operated by the same family - the Gregorys - for three generations.

The recently renovated, air-conditioned rooms and two-bedroom suites (for 1 to 5 guests) include refrigerators, televisions, and en suite bathrooms.

Some rooms offer ocean views. There are free WiFi and complimentary coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. There's also a computer in the lobby for e-mail or browsing.
