Location is right across the the Santa Monica Pier and has a very easy to find entrance to the valet parking. The room itself had a very hip, modern I am in LA feel to it and loved the view of the beach and the mountains above Malibu. Bed was very comfy and the glass doors were like the most... More

Cannot recommend this hotel enough! Clean, spacious room (2 Queen beds and a pullout sofa) right across from the pier. Staff were all friendly and helpful, directing us to activities & restaurants within walking distance and easy access to the highways (PCH and 10). We will always stay here when visitng LA.

We selected The Shore Hotel for its location and were not disappointed. Across the street from Santa Monica Pier and the Pacific Ocean, many restaurants nearby, near shopping and local pubs, and tour bus stops. The staff was super friendly and courteous. The hotel is just the right size - not too big and not too small. We enjoyed our... More

We followed Trip Advisor for our selection.... and Shore Hotel was one of my favourite in California! This hotel has a pool but it is just in front of the beach so you can choose between two great options. I really liked their little garden which has light and outdoor heating at night.

Amazing hotel with exceptional rooms and the best customer service experience I have ever received. They make you feel special and though more expensive it is well worth it. The location is perfect within a couple of blinks of 3rd St promenade and views of the Santa Monica pier. Its evironmentally friendly as well.

I recently stayed at The Shore for 3 nights and it exceeded my expectations in almost every way. The location is awesome - (you are steps from the beach, 3rd street…etc) - and being on Ocean Drive is really fun! The rooms are large and everything is immaculate. But if you go, get an Ocean View or Pool View room…my... 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.
