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

We chose the Shore to bookend a long, road trip around the West and stayed here for two nights at the beginning of August and for two more a fortnight later, at the end of our tour. Our overall experience was excellent. The rooms were stylish, well-equipped and extremely comfortable while the sea and sunset views were exceptional. The Shore... More

We stayed at the Shore Hotel for three nights during a recent family vacation. We wanted to stay outside of LA and we have 2 teenage boys. We all loved it! The hotel is great, conveniently located across the street from Santa Monica pier. Lots of great restaurants, shopping, attractions. You can't go wrong with the Shore Hotel!
