Close to the beach, good walk to pier and shops. Reminded me of a quaint 1960s motel which I liked. Santa Monica is considerably more expensive to other places we have been but probably to be expected. Slightly noisy but we had come from regional areas.

The property was pleasant and well maintained. It overlooks the beach, and it is a short walk to Santa Monica pier, eateries and shopping. The negative things for me where that shampoo was provided but not hair conditioner. Also the refrigerator was so full of drink cans and bottles I had to empty it out to make room for me to use the fridge.

We initially had a problem with the room we were assigned but the staff quickly moved us to another room without any hassle whatsoever. The hotel is in a great spot within a nice walk to Santa Monica pier. Breakfast at Cora's Coffee on the way is a must. The room we had was spacious and comfortable. We could occasionally hear our neighbours but it wasn't anything too bad. We only stayed for one night but I reckon this would be a good spot to locate yourself for exploring Santa Monica and greater LA.

Nice budget hotel really close to the beach

Pros: Great location
Cons: The rooms need updating again, chipped paint and marks all over the walls make it feel unclean when it isn't.
Location: About a 5-10 minute walk from the Pier and the main area. Lots of great restaurants.
We stayed at the Bayside for 6 nights. Santa Monica was by far the best choice of location for our LA stay. The room was OK. It had the basics and looked as though it had been cheaply re-done about 10 years ago. We had a room on the 2nd floor which was nice. The bed was horrible. It was squeaky and lumpy, pillows needed to be replaced. Bathroom was small but fine. Again towels need replacing as they were grey and a couple of them had marks. Good location, about a 5-10 minute walk into the Santa Monica pier which was great.
