Hi Gang, this is my second review of the Sea Shore. This time 4 of us shared a suite during 4 days in October including Halloween. We had a suite at the front of the building and I was a little hesitant because of the street noise and the bar across the street. We didn't find it overly noisy considering... More

This motel is very well located. It is close to the beach and the pier. You can easily walk around and reach the 3rd street promenade. The Main Street itself offers a lot of possibilities for shopping, eating and taking coffee. The service at the motel is very nice and the personnel is always ready to help you, organize a... More

Spacious and clean rooms, only a couple of blocks to the beach, several good restaurants nearby, they even have a nice second floor deck where you can lounge and read. The management is extremely helpful in providing suggestions and maps. Family run, it is a really pleasant diversion from large hotels and chain motels.

The location and price could not be better, especially if you do not have a car. A two block walk to the beach, and within a mile radius, awesome restaurants, pubs and shopping. I arrived later than I planned due to a late arriving flight; but the management waited for me to arrive. WiFi worked great. And was free! My... More

Stayed here Feb 14-17 with a group spread out over half a dozen rooms. The rooms are clean and decent sized. The neighborhood is great, lots of cafes, restaurants and bars nearby. The beach is an easy 2 block walk. The only negative is that it's noisy at night, especially Friday and Saturday when it's too loud to sleep until... More

Good option for a hotel with good rooms, comfy beds and decent amenities. Near to the beach. You can park near your room, it's in a motel style. We met family here and went to a good steak restaurant nearby.

I booked this hotel only going by the recommendations from tripadvisor and I was very pleased with the accommodations. King size bed and bedding was excellent, most comfortable bed we have had in a hotel. Room came with a mini fridge and I also requested and received a microwave and coffee maker. Coffee and creamers were even supplied! Free parking,... More

We spent a weekend in Santa Monica helping our son relocate to a new apartment. We decided to book a suite (43) for the three nights and we are glad we did. Our son's bed wasn't delivered until Sunday so he stayed on the comfortable pull out sofa bed. We all had plenty of room and the suite was well... More

The Main Street location of this motel is superb. Mere steps from great boutiques, cafes and restaurants on beautiful Main St. Walking distance to Venice and the pier and downtown Santa Monica. A couple of blocks from the beach. The motel itself is a simple motel. We had a standard room with two double beds, good TV and clean spacious... More
