I wanted to express my sincere thanks to Mr. Carlos who works at the front desk who after various attempted requests, Carlos stepped up and took it upon himself to help us make our experience in Santa Monica an extraordinaire one. Carlos went far and beyond to make us feel like home and worth the stay at Shore Hotel. The... More

The Shore Hotel is very conveniently located across from the pier and the beach and walking distance to shopping. Nice contemporary rooms. Too cool to try out the pool and beach. The service is terrific. We especially appreciate Mike's service at breakfast - very friendly and professional.

I love this place because of it's chic, modern boutique style and best location for Santa Monica. You have access to Santa Monica Pier - right across the street - and all of the fun up to Venice. Best of all, the luxuries of a 5-star without the price tag. No surprise that this is a four diamond resort. Attentive... More

You can't beat the location of this hotel. It's current too, not in need of a facelift. The hotel is clean and fresh. We were greeted with a glass of champagne which was really nice. Even though we were just visiting our daughter at school, staying only one night and only a 2 hour drive from home, getting handed a... More

We had a great experience with the Shore hotel. They were able to accommodate our request for an early check-in, which we appreciated very much. We were offered our choice of a complimentary welcome glass of champagne or apple cider. The lobby is airy and modern. Our room was on the 3rd floor (American count), facing the beach. We had...

I travel to Southern California 6+ times per year for work. Every time I stay in Santa Monica in recent years, I've stayed at the Shore Hotel. I love the location and proximity to the beach and the 10 Freeway. The rates are reasonable for Downtown Santa Monica and fit within my company's travel guidelines. I have also have enjoyed... More

Dear GLIMRDownNow, Thank you for your mention of Raul! As soon as the weather gets better he will be back outside by the pool. Lucky for us Santa Monica gets about 300 days of sunshine every year. We will see you on your next trip. Kind Regards, Aaron Peaslee Director of Guest Services More

Had a great time here, the service, room, and hot tub were spectacular. The room was very comfortable and first class all the way. The room was also very clean and the views of the ocean were great. I would definitely stay here again.

Dear G841lUjasonh, Thank you for the five star review. We are glad that you enjoyed your visit. A fun little fact about the hotel is that the Pool and Jacuzzi are heated by solar panels that are on the hotel roof.

Gorgeous contemporary hotel right across the street from Santa Monica Pier. Tons of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Crazy bathroom showers that are completely surrounded by clear glass and open to the bedroom. Wierd and cool at the same time. But there is a button for the privacy curtain if preferred. Recommend staying on the 3rd floor or higher... More

Returning for another stay. This time with our 15 month old. Staff were accommodating, professional and attentive. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. Parking was easy and it was easy to navigate a stroller. A comfortable, friendly and safe environment. Thank you so much for a wonderful time--we didn't want to leave. Alex and family.

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.
