My daughter and I booked this hotel last minute on Expedia. The hotel is small and modern. It is centrally located on Ocean Avenue and a short walk to the pier. The room was small but well layed out. We were on the third floor and had an amazing ocean view.

The staff is incredibly friendly. Aside from that and the great location ... My room smelled like the restaurant below had stored their garbage in there until a few moments before I checked in. I asked to switch rooms and the new room smelled ten times worse. I was exhausted and simply went back to the first room. Because of... More

Another mini vacation w/ my husband and 8 year old. Researched hotels for a month and finally decided on Shore Hotel because when I called I was told I would have an ocean view room and request for early checkin and since the hotel doesn't have it's own restaurant I was told we could order from any nearby restaurant and...

Stayed several nights recently in an ocean facing room in this modern hotel, just across from the Santa Monica pier. Room was compact, but comfortable with less noise than expected from the street below. Furnishings and décor were contemporary and attractive. Especially liked the well-lit bathroom mirror. Bathroom and shower floors were a bit slippery, though they do provide slippers... More

This hotel was fabulous! The location is ideal, literally right across the street from the Santa Monica Pier. The rooms were very nice with an eco-friendly feel, but also cool, modern yet comfortable! The staff was very helpful and friendly. We loved it and plan to go back!

Very swish hotel, easy access to Santa Monica pier over the road and 3rd street promenade. Room very modern with great toiletries and design, slightly small but would expect that given the location. gym good and nice welcome of free champagne on check in.parking expensive $35 but easiest option. Recommended.

First and foremost, the location is great! Step out the front door straight onto ocean avenue directly at the Santa Monica pier! The check in was friendly but the room was not ready until exactly 4 pm. Our room was in the attached building which meant a very annoying journey - up one floor in the elevator, cross the bridge,...

Don't let the location and fanciness of this hotel detour you! We came straight from a Dodgers game, less than fresh in our matching jerseys. Myself, my niece, her husband and my two kids. As we drove by this hotel, we actually made a joke about what their reaction might be if we walked in looking for a room. Between... More
