I like the Shore because it is environmentally friendly, modern and uncomplicated in design and practices! And of course is merely a stroll from the Santa Monica pier and beach! It is surrounded by numerous coffee shops and restaurants and their night room service is great! I had delicious pastries around 10 pm! The balcony gave us a beautiful view... More

3 sleepless nights. I felt like I was in an echo chamber listening to doors slamming, luggage rolling, and people talking most of the time. I was on the ground floor and the acoustics were terrible. AC went out the first day because the Inncom thermostat locked up. Maintenance did come reboot the thermostat and AC worked after that but... More

One reviewer complained of the distance to the Beach! The hotel is a pedestrian crossing away from the pier, the boardwalk and the beach. Stunning location. Good pool and bubbly pool open 7am to 11pm. Continental breakfast available, but excellent local breakfast options (Jinky's, Blue Daisy). I think the staff really make the place though. Plenty of them, always knowledgable... More

Spent 5 nights here with the family in August. The hotel is located opposite Santa Monica pier so the area was extremely busy but you are right in the heart of everything, restaurants, shops, beach. The hotel is very modern, valet parking is $35 ($33 self park) a day, they have very swish lounge downstairs whilst you wait for your... More

We spent one week in the hotel. Employees are nice, offering a good level of service. The rooms are average in terms of size for a family, but the design is really unique. Swimming pool is not so big but the hotel either so definitively not an issue. Location is just perfect

Friendly and wonderful service/staff. Beautiful rooms (a bit smaller than we would have liked but comfortable. We had our 2 teenage kids with us). Small but pretty pool area. Quite... More

Loved it here. Perfect location across from the beach and pier. In the midst of restaurants galore. Swimming pool was great. Room was large and spotless. Best rooms are sea or pool view. The parking was invaluable. All the staff were helpful and friendly. I was really sorry to leave.

My friend was staying at the hotel for a few days on holiday so we traveled to see her for a few hours. Our plan was to have lunch and drinks by the pool while the kids swam. This turned out to be an almost impossible task. There were only scattered single seats available so my friend and I had... More
