Roberto, David, and Mellisa were very accommodating and ensured that I had everything I needed to celebrate my engagement. They were very attentive, welcoming, and gave me solid recommendations for food. I will definitely be visiting this establishment once again due to their top tier service.

Hotel's Favorite
We enjoyed our time at the Santa Monica Shore hotel so much. I can’t think of anything they could have done better. From the start, we felt very welcome. I wish I knew the name of the young man who checked us in, but it was on Aug 10 at about 5:00, so maybe you can check to see who it was working that day (if a manager happens to see this) because he deserves kudos! We have 2 small children and sometimes when we travel with them in big cities, it seems like kids are not very welcome, but that couldn’t have been further from how we were treated by the front desk associate. He gave the children little fancy glasses of apple cider, and that act of kindness meant everything to them! In consideration of the current pandemic, I felt really safe during our stay. The entire property was very clean, and every staff member was wearing a mask. I observed staff regularly cleaning the pool area and other common areas. Parking was easy and safe. We were close to everything we wanted, so we never even used our car during our stay. We ate fish tacos and carne asada tacos at Blue Plate Taco down stairs and it was delicious. Definitely a must have. The room is really nicely decorated and we had an amazing view. It was described as a “partial ocean view” but that is a modest description because we enjoyed a gorgeous view of the pier and pool. We can’t wait to return! Thank you so much for making our time away from home so memorable!

Quiet clean rooms and very spacious. Enjoyed a 5 night stay right in front of Santa Monica Pier. Jogging path and free bike rentals to ride to Venice and local shopping. I must also add that the shower had the best water pressure I have ever felt. Excellent staff and every need was meet quickly. Will definitely stay again in the near future.

I stayed 5 mights and the hotel personnel were able to helped me out with a bad experience that happened outside the hotel facilities so I'm so thankful for that. I booked a bike in the hotel a morning to go to the point where my surf lesson was taking place. After two hour of surfing, I found out that the hotel's bike was stolen. Even thought I locked the bike as indicated at the hotel, in a very visible spot on the beach where lot of people walk around that was not enough. I felt so bad about it. I explained the situation to the hotel manager and team and they were able to manage the case showing caring for their guests. So Much appreciated. On top of this, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel.
