My husband and I had 6 nights at Shore Hotel and we really enjoyed our modern room, but we were above a restaurant which would have cleaners in around 1 am to 3 am and they would make so much noise it was hard to sleep listening to chairs scrapping on the concrete… after 3 nights of this we complained...

We had a quick stay in Santa Monica and were looking for an option near the pier. Shore Hotel stood out on trip advisor ratings. Our experience was very positive, from the friendly and helpful desk staff to the clean and comfortable room. The location is outstanding, providing easy walking access to all of the key Santa Monica attractions. Wi-Fi... More

Great stay with the family - a great thumbs up for the front of house staff in particular Alex who were fabulous . We left our child seat in the transfer shuttle - no problem for the team at the desk coordinating the return of the seat!! Would be great if they sort their new planned kitchen for breakfast but...

The Shore Hotel is in a great location facing the sea and close to the Pier, the restaurants and the shops. Valet parking and reception was quick and efficient. We booked a room with 2 double beds but found both the room and the beds pretty small. It had a small balcony overlooking the pool and a view of the... More

We only stayed one night but this was my impression: Clean, new and modern, but almost to a fault. In the elevator and corridors, it had a slight hospital feel to it. Rooms are clean with a great shower, but nothing special. A perfectly nice accommodation but not luxurious. You are definitely paying for the location. Right across from pier... More

We stayed for just one night. We arrived rafter a day of travelling and it was a lovely oasis of calm friendliness. We had a horrible grumpy yellow cab driver from the airport so were a bit frazzled when we arrived, but the checkin process was seamless and we were offered a glass of bubbles which was very much appreciated....

for boutique hotels. LOW. Minimalist deign is nice but minimal amenities are not . In all my years of foreign and domestic travel, I have never seem a $5 charge for bedroom slippers. A new standard! The air conditioning seemed to cut off at night even though we set the thermostat to 69 degrees. I'm sure the hotel would "claim... More

The hotel is very well located in Santa Monica. Overlooks the beach, and in an area with many restaurants and shops. Staff is friendly and quite helpful. The facilities benefit from the hotel being very recent, rooms are comfortable. Room size could be somewhat bigger. In terms of price, at 700$ per night in a double bed was pricey!
