Stayed here for one night whilst travelling from Las Vegas. Room was nice and clean and we paid extra for a sea view although this was mainly obstructed by the palm trees. Really happy there was a blind in front of the glass shower and toilet as I would have not liked this room at all if it was not... More

This hotel has it all - location, beautifully appointed, outstanding service. Jen checked is in and could not have been more professional and helpful. Alex checked us out and was equally fabulous. I would never stay elsewhere in Santa Monica.

Just stayed at the Shore Hotel and had a great experience. Fantastic location and we had a room overlooking the Santa Monica pier - can't get much better when pulling up the curtains in the morning. The staff was the best we've experienced so far, everyone from the bellboys and reception staff were just so friendly and helpful that it... More

This hotel is nice and staff is wonderful. The price is good compared to others nearby. But the real attraction is the location. I was concerned it was too close the pier. But it is actually the best spot. The beach nearby is great. Lots of volleyball courts and the gymnastics stuff (you have to see it to know what... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Shore hotel and always find the staff really friendly and helpful. Alex on reception and TC the porter were really good to us the last time we stayed. Water pressure in rooms needs to be addressed though. We stayed on the 3rd floor and it trickled out. Apart from that... More

My most recent travel was for work that required me to travel from North Carolina to California. My week in Santa Monica was absolutely booked to the hilt so, any glitch in transport or accommodations had the potential to derail the visit. Alex greeted me every morning in the lobby and was ready to assist me in any way he... More

Great location in Santa Monica, funky rooms. They are on the small side but honestly I'd expect no different for this location. The bathrooms are funky, the shower head comes out of the ceiling and to make the room look a little bigger the shower has a glass wall to the rest of the room, very artsy look to it.... More

Yes I know that LA and especially Santa Monica is NOT A CHEAP PLACE but the htel is definitely not worth its price the only advantage is convenient location. Rooms are very simple (cheap pseudo-modern plastic chic), you have to pay extra for bathrobe and slippers!!!! The interior was made by people loving concrete very much. For me - ugly.... More

Upon arrival, my husband and I had an issue with our reservation (we had booked through a 3rd party reservation site) but the front desk staff was extremely courteous and patient while we got the issue resolved. They offered us a class of sparkling wine to take to our room, which had a beautiful ocean view and balcony. The room... More
