    This Mall is in the heart of Santa Monica, pedestrian zone 3rd street and a short walk from the Pier. Well worth a trip, there are fashion designer shops, eating places, stores, and turns easily. There's nothing quaint and not posh though we walk nicely. The prices are average. I suggest the Walt Disney Store, we found some good bargains, and the Cheesecake Factory, you can not try it.

    Amazon will eliminate it sooner or later, but for now Louis Vuitton is still present here. Overall cool, movie theater is really great, stores are semi-empty, food is limited and overpriced, restrooms...  more »

    The atmosphere is perfect. You'll find everything and all prices, a relaxed urban atmosphere. There are shops, care for the body and hair. Fun sweets, so stores. You have to give a return. At night they sing independent artists with his guitar and complete the atmosphere.

    Newly remodeled and overhauled and now open air! I still miss the old mall though... used to have some small, mom-and-pop stores that were more affordable. This mall competes with high end sellers in Beverly Hills and draws in the tourist trade. Higher end eateries as well.

    Santa Monica pier is a lovely beach, there's lots of room for people to branch out, but it's still very crowded. Parking was astoundingly hard to find and the city traffic is hectic. If you don't want a wildly busy beach, or don't want to spend an hour or a lot of money on parking, this is not the beach for you. The Pier does pose lots of entertainment from the street performers to the amusement rides, but please, be mindful of the location of all of your family members, including children.

    This mall has a great open air layout. At the same time it is well shaded if you need to escape the heat of 3rd Street Promenade. There’s a food court on the top level, that’s nothing spectacular. There are however some good sit down restaurants here. There are a good collection of quality stores here. There are not a lot of stores, but combine it with 3rd Street and you should be covered.

    Nice outdoor shopping mall. We enjoyed this a lot more than the pier area, which seemed to be 100% for the tourists. Mostly clothes stores and not enough places to grab a bit.

    The mall is great. Absolutely no complaints. Great location as well

Where to stay in Santa Monica

Santa Monica's hotels range from luxury to boutique, offering more than 3,500 rooms located at or near the waterfront. Staying at a beachfront resort can cost a bundle, so if you have a limited budget in mind, consider accommodations away from the water. Hotels just a few blocks from the ocean offer comfortable rooms with free Wi-Fi and cable TV at a fraction of the cost charged by their beachfront equivalents. For an even more affordable stay, consider one of the city's inns or motels.
