Location is amazing, but the customer service is not. We arrived at the hotel around 4 pm, but were told our room was not ready and they did not know when it would be ready, but they would let us know. We were really looking forward to checking in, changing into some comfortable clothes, and spending some time on the... More

Beautiful hotel, prime location. Room was spotless and refreshing. Checkout experience was horrible. The front desk girls were chatting amongst themselves and did not acknowledge I was even standing there. A bellman approached the desk and he was greeted before I was! I certainly expected better service.

Our family of four stayed at the Shore Hotel for a week this April. The hotel is clean, beautiful, and so perfectly located. The staff was very helpful, eager, and friendly. Additionally, the staff was so helpful with getting us a driver, renting a car, selecting nearby restaurants, etc. We really were so pleased with our visit. Selecting a hotel... More

The Shore hotel is in the perfect location, right by the pier, across the street from Palisades Park, and only a few blocks from the Promenade. The hotel is very contemporary and stylish from the lobby to the heated outdoor pool and courtyard to the rooms. They also have a very nice gym area. We had a "partial ocean view"... More

Location is very good. The rooms are fine. Look for a room to the ocean side. The lobby and the design is refreshing and modern. Especially during the night the lighting looks very cool. Santa Monica and the Hotel is a very good escape from the Academy Week Specials.

I realize that this is my 3rd time reviewing the hotel but this place is outstanding! Mary at the front desk is a rock star. She not only helped me with my rental car reservation but also helped with my upgrade. I can't say enough about the Shore. Keep up the great work!

My checkin and checkout was a breeze and the staff were very helpfull with any questions I needed... More

Shore Hotel made for the perfect spot during our 2 day stay in LA. It is excellently located close to the beach (which my partner loved running along in the mornings) and pier in Santa Monica and the hotel itself reflects the relaxed, stylish and clean ambience of this shore-side location. The hotel staff was friendly and welcoming throughout. The... More
