Wonderful stay. The staff were all helpful and extremely friendly. A great value all around. The Shore will be a definite stay again. Extremely convenient location, walking distance from many local attractions. Security is exceptional. A great overall family experience.

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!

My husband and I stayed here last week as a getaway and once we checked in they gave us a glass of champagne each which was nice. However when we got to our room our card/key didn’t work for the room. We went back down to the front desk and they said they fixed the key and it worked. We stayed in the ocean premier room the view is spectacular the room comes with a private balcony as well. It’s noisy on ocean ave but once you close the sliding window you can’t hear anything. We went downstairs the next morning for breakfast but the service was slow and once we actually had the waiter come to us he said that although we were going to eat in the outdoor Terrance we would still be charged a room service fee. We decided to eat elsewhere. When we got back later in the evening we went up to the room and the key didn’t work again this time we called the front desk from our cell phone and they sent someone up and who told us the battery needed to be replaced and called a tech to come fix it which was fairly quickly. However it’s the inconvenience of the matter. After that we were able to come and go as we pleased with no more problems. I absolutely love the location we would come back again.

Excellent location, beautiful exterior, and very modern interior. We stayed with our grandson, and truly had a wonderful time. They made his first visit to the beach a very memorable one, including a special welcome drink. Thank you to all of the staff for your kind service. The room was clean, pool was clear, and the restaurants next door superb.
