All the spaces in this hotel are beautifully designed, but the rooms are quite small and the staff quite inept. The bellhop tripped over and dropped a case; then complained about how heavy the next case was, and even that there was nowhere to put it. Young kid so OK. On our second night, the room wasn't made up. We... More

If you are planning tp visit Santa Monica this is the best place to be. It is a great location, with many things to do in the surroundings. The hotel is brand new with a very different design. The hotel has a nice, but small pool and during the night they have some good drinks in the pool area.

Have just retruned from a great stay at the Shore Hotel in Santa Monica, we stayed 7 nights and had an ocean view room which had great views of the pier and the sea. The location of the hotel is excellent close to great restaurants and a short walk to the pier and the beach. The staff are also excellent... More

We've just moved from Santa Monica to Portland, OR after living 13 years in Santa Monica and for our last night before hitting the road we thought to stay at the Shore having seen it being built and after reading the good reviews on tripadvisor. Unfortunately I cannot say it lives up to the hype. Our experience started off badly... More

Take the ocean view room. Loved the shower with double-sided glas walls. Very friendly staff and hip. Have breakfast at Jinky's in 2nd street around the corner and don't miss 3rd street. Lot's of nice stores and restaurants. If you're in for diving, check the Ventura Harbor. Take the Pacific Coast High through Malibu. Would definetely come back to this... More

It is probably one of the more modern hotels in SM. The pool could be bigger but who really needs one, when you are right across from the beach. Beware of the valet! The sign is deceiving, it is advertised for less than what they billed us (because that is the self parking price). I think it was 40 a... More

We had originally booked our 5 night stay in another hotel on Ocean Ave. This particular hotel, (without mentioning names) was also in a very good location and received very good reviews on Tripadvisor. However, it is an older hotel and was not to our liking. So, after one night of staying there, we checked out and walked two blocks... More

Nice hotel close to everything, Rooms are nice, with a large bathroom. The pool is fun. If you want to be close to nice restaurants, shopping and access to the pier and boardwalk this is the place to stay. The room pricing is just right if you compare to other hotels in LA.

Our first trip to LA was brilliant staying in this clean and comfortable hotel. We had booked in at Lowes up the road which was very very average. We switched hotels to Shores and were exceptionally welcomed by Jen and her reception team. Great location great staff great hotel. We will be back.

We spent a week at the Shore hotel and I cant really point out anything bad. Santa Monicas best location with the pier just 1minute away. Everything was super clean and the staff super friendly. People might think it's pricy but trust me, it's well worth the money. We will pic this hotel again the next time we visit Santa... More
