When it comes to vacation spots in Southern California, it's hard to beat Santa Monica, a vibrant west coast neighborhood of Los Angeles. With great shopping, gorgeous beaches, trendy restaurants and bars, tree-lined walking paths and the famous amusement park fun that is found at the Santa Monica Pier, it's a great place to spend a week's vacation or a weekend getaway. Lucky for travelers, Santa Monica also has an excellent assortment of hotels to stay in while visiting. Beach lovers will enjoy staying at one of the beachfront resorts that have pools, beach activities and a plethora of ocean views from the property. Those looking to dive into Santa Monica's more eclectic side can find an enjoyable stay at one of Santa Monica's boutique hotels located just a short walk off the beach. Luxury bed and breakfast accommodations are also a great option while in Santa Monica. Though you'll be hard pressed to find accommodation that's a steal, there is still a wide range of prices for hotel stays and you can find a good deal without breaking the bank if you're on a budget or you can go all out and splurge for a top of the line stay if you're looking for a luxurious vacation.
