Just returned from a spring break trip with our family of 4 - boys ages 9 and 15. Hotel was very modern, clean with friendly staff. Great location in front of the Santa Monica Pier, which is around a 5 minute walk using the overpass walkway. The beach is also right across the street, but is separated by a highway... More

Stayed in Santa Monica for the final night of our holidays. We had a room at the back of the hotel on the ground floor, which due to the hotel covering two blocks meant it was two separate elevator trips and quite a walk to get to our room. Room was small/average with a good bathroom. Close to beach and... More

Found this hotel through trip advisor and was not disappointed. From the moment we stepped in, folks at the front desk (like Tyrone , Charlie ) accommodated us in whatever way they could, from allowing us to check in early to making sure we knew where to go. The concierge, Jen, was super helpful before the trip in giving me... More

I stayed at the Shore Hotel while visiting my daughter in Santa Monica. The location is terrific for beach access and if you want to be in the middle of things. The hotel itself is very nice, quiet, and GREEN. They have done a great job of incorporating technology that permits water and electrical conservation in a way that doesn't... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights here thanks to his boss. The hotel is close to the Santa Monica pierre and lots of restaurants and shops. It was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond to accommodate us. I would stay there again next time I am in Santa Monica.

our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location, friendly and attentive staff who went above and beyond! Exceeded our expectations on several occasions during our stay. When we told them of our evening flight, they accommodated a 3pm check out without hassle (we asked nicely, of course). They even delivered and loaded our car to the garage. We... More

After reading great reviews on your site, we decided to stay at the Shore for 2 nights last week. We were really disappointed. The service was not as professional nor friendly as one would expect (from the reviews). The prices for the average quality room/service/hotel were not justified ( 400$ a room a night). You have the impression you are... More

Dear Asing, I apologize that you feel that the hotel was very average. That is not the type of experience we try to offer. We know that being at the beach commands a high price and with that high expectations. Feedback like yours is helpful to know if we are hitting that mark. Again I apologize that your experience was... More

The not so good. • Rooms are on the smaller side • Bath and shower can be completely exposed, or divided by a shade that is controlled by the “viewer” and not the one showering! So if you share a room, unless you are an exhibitionist, make sure you trust your roommate not to peak. • Parking is expensive. Cheaper... 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.
