This was our second stay at the Seashore and it didnt disappoint. Lovely clean, spacious rooms with AC, TV and little fridge. All the staff were lovely, and full of local knowledge. Its a short walk tothe beach but we love walking so that was not a problem, the area had a great vibe about it, with boutique style shops... More

We stayed at the Sea Shore Motel in late June this year. It's in a great location, roughly mid-way between Santa Monica and Venice Beach, a bit of a walk to each. But it's only three blocks from the beach, so it really doesn't matter. Free parking on site, which was great given that you are in LA. Lots of... More

Great place to stay; true value for money. Nice rooms, AC, TV, fridge, free parking. Very friendly staff. Location is SUPER! Right on Main Street, so close to the beach and all the fun stores. And for my fellow countrymen: they have a weak spot for the Dutch...

My family (and lately me alone) has been staying at the Sea Shore for six years now and have never had a bad experience. We love the rooms (spacious and clean), the location (can't be beat) and the service (always helpful and always with a smile). So I am puzzled when I read about someone being unhappy. Our beds have... More

Is it swanky? No. Is it clean? Yes! Tile floors throughout mean no gross carpets. Bathrooms all have nice, clean tiles throughout. Comfy beds with different pillows means you have choices. New windows block a lot of sound. We stayed in a downstairs unit but either the upstairs folk weighed less than 100 pounds or the place was built when... More

I booked this hotel for my daughter and her friends, sight unseen, based on Tripadvisor. They wanted a place close to the beach and with plenty of room. The free parking was a plus, the only negative was that I thought the rooms were pricey for a dated hotel. Overall they were very happy and said they would stay there... More

The full suites are wonderful facilities, the location couldn't be better, staff very helpful and friendly. Right on Main Street (the old original centre of lovely Santa Monica), by lots of restaurants, cafés beauty places and shops, a couple of blocks from the beautiful beach, and a shortish walk to the Pier and Third Street Promenade and all that stuff....

As everyone has said previously, the location of the Sea Shore Motel is terrific. The free on-site parking is also terrific.The room, however, left a lot to be desired. Upon entering the room I was blown away by the smell, which I eventually decided was a combination of that mildewy smell you often get in cheap beach motels mixed with... More

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
