Great location one block from the beach, walking distance to Venice boardwalk. Shopping and restaurants at the doorstep. Fresh produce market across the road on a Sunday morning was a bonus. We stayed on the 2nd floor generous size though average rooms we did have noise issues with the room next door but management deal with this very quickly. Location... More

I stayed 10 nights in the Junior Suite in the back of the complex. The suite is large with a full kitchen, living room and bedroom. The location of the suite guarantees a good night's sleep as there's no noice from the Main Street. Minor minuses: the AC unit in the bedroom is so noisy and outdated I had to... More

Chose this after reading Trip Advisor reviews, Of course, being there puts everything into perspective. Tile floors means those staying on the first floor can be very noisy (sounded like furniture was being dragged around upstairs). While the weather could have meant sleeping with windows open, the noise of the nearby street meant closing the windows and using the AC... More

A fabulous family run motel with a great crew. Chris and his wife and staff are friendly and helpful, and every request I made was carried out with great speed and courtesy. A great location very near the beach promenade. The room was excellent, spotless, and extremely comfortable.

This is our second stay and we will simply never stay some place else when in S M due to price, friendly staff and LOCATION. It is a motel, retro in style: hot pink building on Main street. The staff are really friendly and genuinely interested in their customers. Gotta love it. Will be back ✌️☀️

We stayed at the Sea Shore Motel for a week. We spent three days in one of the suites (6 people in two queen beds and a sofa bed) and then three days in one of the motel room. The suite is actually an apartment with a kitchen, dining area, and a lot of space. The room is a two... More

Hotels in Santa Monica are costly especially in the summer. Did a lot of research on the net before deciding on this motel. It was nearly full when I booked nearly 3 months ago and decided to take the 1 bedroom kitchen suite. Check in was a breeze and we were allotted suite 42 which is in the annexe, recently... More

I think it was quite expensive compared to what it is. The reason must be that it is so close to the water, but for me who isn't into laying on the beach all the time i could have preferred a bit cheaper and then more away from the beach, but that's not how it was, but doesn't matter now... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this property for the first time in September 2011, and again this May. The motel has so much charm that I can't help but enjoy my time there. The location, the front desk staff, the rooms themselves, the whole process is just perfect. The bed was so spacious it felt like my partner... More

This is a nice motel but difficult to find a vacancy during the summer months. It is only a few blocks from the beach and located along a very quaint shopping area, Main Street. I found the motel to be clean, well appointed and free parking is included with the room. I paid $200.00 per night for a weekly suite... More
