We stayed in Santa Monica two years ago and thought the Shore Hotel looked really interesting. This time we stayed four nights at the hotel, and it was a great experience. Shore Hotel has a perfect situation just across the street from Santa Monica's beach and the Pier. It is also just around the corner from the shops and restaurants,... More

Our experience at the shore hotel was nothing short of perfect. Right across from the Santa monica beach within walking distance to so many stores and restaurants. The concierge Jen Besserman is so upbeat and accommodating - going beyond to ensure that we had an incredible stay. The room was very clean with relaxing colors and we could hear the... More

This hotel was built in 2011 and is in almost new condition. Rooms are excellent - very modern and interesting bathroom design with a glass 'wall' onto the main room (a privacy screen is available!) and the room had the most comfortable beds of our trip. Staff went out of their way to show us the room, facilities, help with... More

This hotel cost us $375 per night. If it had been $240 per night it would have been fair value and I would have given it a better review as a result. On the plus side, the location is good, the room was clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly (as other reviewers have said). On the negative side it's... More

Quick trip with spouse and one child. All in the same room. While the room was not overly big, it was everything we needed. Fantastic view, quiet, perfect. Well located for doing all the "touristy" stuff of Santa Monica. The staff was above the call of duty--each one of them. They made a big deal of daughter's birthday, brought up... More

This has an ideal location for exploring Santa Monica - just across the road from the beach and Pier and 1 block to the main shopping precinct. We had booked direct and wanted interconnecting rooms but at time of booking they were not available. Luckily after check-in they were able to accommodate us and facilitated the move seamlessly.

I went for a few days of sun to run on beach and escape minus 35 degree temperatures in our Canadian winters and was not disappointed. The hotel is 1 min walk from beach and lots to see and do all around. The hotel itself is gorgeous and reasonably priced.

Fantastic Hotel. Tremendous location, beautiful room, and the very best staff. However, I did not get the best price over the phone as I found out when someone walked in, shopping area hotels, and received a better deal. The staff responded to my concern beautifully and found us a great deal, but I would like to believe that those who... 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.
