Just returned from a 4 nite stay. We had a partial ocean view room. The room was very modern, clean and comfortable. We had a small balcony which we enjoyed very much. The hotel staff was very customer conscious and quite helpful. I would definitely stay here again. It seemed to be the best location. Right across from the ocean and pier. We took the breakfast plan and I must say the food was excellent. The French toast, coated in special K was amazing. The restaurant staff, Jesus, NormaAnd James were so helpful. No need to look elsewhere for a hotel in Santa Monica. This hotel is the best!

The Shore Hotel was a wonderful property in a fantastic location. It is right on Ocean Ave in Santa Monica right across the street from the Santa Monica Pier and beach. There are so many restaurants and shopping (3rd Street Promenade) all within walking distance, which is great and you can leave your car in the underground parking garage. Also the PCH is right there too to take a drive up the coast to beautiful Malibu. The hotel staff were all very helpful and welcoming (we even were welcomed with a glass of champagne!). We had breakfast by the pool one morning and the staff were so polite, attentive and personable. The room was wonderful as well. We had an ocean view room with a balcony right on Ocean Ave. it was so pretty looking at the ocean and seeing all the lights from the pier at night. The bed was comfy, the shower had excellent water pressure, etc. We even loved that each floor had a place to fill water bottles. We enjoyed staying at the Shore Hotel and will for sure be back in the future. We cannot say enough wonderful things!

My husband and I stayed at the Shore Hotel at the end of our Route 66 holiday. Our stay was amazing it’s a great hotel and location. Ramon at reception checked us in and spent time giving us all the information and places of interest. He was so friendly and approachable. Ramon is a credit to the hotel.

Booked a King size bed w/ view, and was given a queen size bed. When I tried to get the proper room w/ bed, I was told room 306 has a "Hotel King" we only have "Hotel Kings". I looked in a open two queen size bedroom (which shows how safe your room is here as I saw no cleaning staff and could have walked right in) the beds were the same size as mine. A queen. I'm 6 ft tall/ 72inches total, & my feet were a foot off the bed... Room wasn't cleaned for days? Asked for our room to be clean at 12 walking out and by 4pm it wasn't clean. The entire place just has an incredible cheap, dirty, motel feel on Ocean Ave. Wifi sucks, hotel fridge filled with overpriced water stuff, Peep hole in privacy screen to the glass shower (Creepy) Rain shower but no water pressure. Had an early flight out of LAX and we literally were thrilled to be at an airport Hyatt after this stay.

We stayed here for ten days as a base to see LA and we were not disappointed. We were well looked after by the welcoming staff and they couldn’t do enough for us with a special mention to Jesse. The pool is lovely and open until 10pm. There is just a tinted glass wall between you and the sea. If we return to LA we will definitely be coming back to Shore Hotel.

Stayed here for two nights after a trip up the coast. The hotel is centrally located with easy access to the pier and 3rd St Promenade. Beach access is also handy, but be aware, the hotel is well above the beach which can be a strenuous climb for some. Still not bad and direct beach access like Shutters and Casa del Mar come at a price. That said, the location is in a very busy area if you are looking for a peaceful beach hotel. The hotel is very clean and staff was friendly and helpful. Loved the free bicycles and made good use of them. All in all a very nice place to stay.

The shore hotel was AMAZING! Great service, the staff was always there to help when you needed them, or even offer things you didn’t know you needed! Jesus, Norma, Jaimes, Dany provided great service poolside & during breakfast. Cynthia came to clean our room mid trip & made it look fabulous all over again. Tony was also amazing, helpful, & friendly by the front desk. From the very beginning at check in, we felt very welcomed & at home, everyone was so kind & happy to help. 100% will stay here again on my next California trip!

Even though we just stayed overnight we had a wonderful time in this beautiful hotel. Ramon from the front desk was very helpful in checking us in and giving us great advice on where to eat. The room is beautiful and clean. I just wish they provide complementary water in the room.
