Pros: Great location! Directly across the road from Santa Monica Pier. Ample restaurants and shops nearby. The double glazed windows worked very well and it wasn’t noisy at all at night considering the location. Staffs were friendly and our room was well laid out with everything we needed for our one-night stay. Cons: Note check in is 4pm and check... More

Stayed 2 nights during a family vacation. Had 2 rooms, a King and 2 Queen partial ocean view which were very quiet with small but adequate balcony overlooking pool. I was a little disappointed that the hotels are located on a busy street far from entrance to the beach. You have to go across a busy street and an overpass... More

We stayed here for one night before heading to Palm Springs and then for another couple of nights afterwards. On the first night we stayed in a room overlooking the street behind the hotel and on the second occasion we chose an ocean view room. The hotel itself has a fantastic location on Ocean Avenue, close to the Santa Monica... More

This hotel is located at the center of the beech. The room is pretty clean and beautiful. On the way back to the airport, door- to door service with a nice car and gentle driver was available ($47), which made me very comfortable.

We "met" the Shore Hotel through a medical facility nearby that we came to for treatment. They set up our reservation. We were thoroughly delighted with the staff who came across as truly caring and responsive. And I mean they were fast with their service.

It is a nice hotel with a great staff, and a fantastic location from the beach to one of the best shopping anywhere. Rooms are smallish, with just a small shower (but it is a fantastic shower experience!) It is a bit noisy since you're right above the throng but it's fine. The price can be high because of the...

Shore Hotel is a fantastic location, but extremely disappointing overall. Their "suite" is just one room and they gave our family nearly zero flexibility on a late check-out (11:30 AM versus 11 AM). They offered us access to the pool/gym where we could shower/change-- but beware, the gym has 1 bathroom/shower and if someone is in there you will end... More

A+ location and really: "photogenic", "eco-sensitive" and all the jargon, towels, slippers and robes and premier packaged trendy branded $10 roasted minibar nuts in place - I found there was something flat about the entire experience - it's not romantic, cozy, nor truly bench mark hip...

This hotel is perfectly situated in Santa Monica. The beach and the famous pier is right across the street. The look is modern and it is an "eco" building. We had a room on the 3rd floor at the base of the "U" shape of the building, looking over the pool. My wife is extremely sensitive to noise and the... More

We just rented 5 rooms for two nights. The lowest rate was $355/night, plus $34/day for parking. Oh, it was $10/day extra if you wanted your room cleaned! Coffee in the lobby in the morning was #3.00/cup, if you could find someone to pour it. Don't ask for a roll! It was $5.00. There was almost no space to sit... 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.
