Just finished a third stay. Solid 4 star choice in Santa Monica. Great location. Across from the pier and walkable to everything. I think they mostly succeed at what they are trying to be - casual beach house sort of vibe. Website photos accurate. Be careful with the partial ocean view rooms, some face the HVAC of the adjacent building... More

This is a lovely modern hotel, very modern, purpose built. It is in the heart of everything, 2 mins to the pier one way and 2 mins to restaurants the other. There was a issue with being given a non sea view one bed suite when we had booked one with a view, the hotel reduced the fee for each... More

we stayed at the shore hotel for 4 nights and it was wonderful. The service they provide is perfect and the staff is very helpful. The rooms are decorated in a modern way and the bathrooms are great. We had a room on the ground level - which is great you can hop in the pool in front of your... More

We were very pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Shore! We found the room to be extra large, super clean and comfy! Staff helpful and friendly! Pool area lovely.. Kids enjoyed swimming! Lots of shopping and dining options nearby. We were sad to leave!

We saved our best hotel for last. It was definitely the best hotel we have ever stayed at. All the staff are so nice and helpful. The rooms were very fancy, clean and the beds were very comfortable. When we first checked in Tony helped us and took our bags up to our room and told us a few things... More

This was a great location for us to get ready for our wedding at a nearby park. Staff was really courteous and polite. Make sure you double check the room you are getting. There was an online mixed up with our reservation and our room unfortunately was not the one we reserved. A slight disappointment, since it was our wedding... More

I previously stayed at the Shore Hotel in February and for the most part really enjoyed it. As a result when another hotel gave our over a month old reservation away and had to put us up in another hotel I immediately suggested The Shore. I am very thankful that they were willing and able to accommodate us, even though... More

My wife and I stayed here 3 nights. Very modern and newer hotel right in front of the beach. We walked to beach, pier, shopping, and great restaurants in the immediate area. The only thing missing at this hotel is a restaurant. We did not find the breakfast area very appealing, so we went elsewhere. Would definitely stay here again... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
