Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.

Dear Sam2417, Thank you so much for the review of your stay with us. Great to hear you found the front desk team friendly and accommodating and the ocean view room excellent. Our location makes it easy to visit the Pier a block away in one direction and the shopping, movie theaters and restaurants a block or two away within Santa Monica Place and the Third Street Promenade. We look forward to your return, Tom R.

The Shore Hotel looks from the front to be a cool and high spec place to stay on Ocean Drive. Sadly it fell a little short for me. The initial greeting wasn’t warm and friendly, the lobby was cold and not terribly comfortable, there is no well established bar or restaurant and

Dear bethst50, Thank you for staying at the Shore Hotel. I apologize our Food and Beverage is limited after breakfast and not what you expected. We appreciate your review and suggestions. We continue to improve every day and your feedback is key in directing our efforts. We have new menu items rolling out soon as well. Great to hear Tyrone and Brittney were especially helpful. Our bar is usually outside adjacent to the pool but in the colder winter months and with the rain as of late we have it indoors. Sincerely, Tom R.

Nicely appointed, modern style rooms right in the middle of everything! I enjoyed my stay and slept well in a comfortable bed. The hotel is within walking distance of mall shopping, eats of all types, and the famous Santa Monica Pier!

The Garden View rooms would be the most quiet as they are removed from the avenue and face a courtyard.

Dear lisaanne08, Thank you for contacting Shore Hotel! Although we do not guarantee early check-in, we can definitely add a request to your reservation for an early check-in. Depending on the availability from the night before we can then be able to check you in early. The only way to guarantee an early check-in would be to book the night before to ensure there will be a room ready by your arrival. Please contact Shore Hotel at (310) 458-1515 and ask to speak to Roberto so that I can add your early check-in request. Warmest Regards, Roberto G.

Dear boothyrebecca15, There are a number of city tours that are fun and easy ways to familiarize yourself with the city. LA is a very large city so tours start at 2 ½ to 4 hours and go longer from there depending on how much you’d like to see. Tours prices start out at $49 per person for a self-guided Hop On Hop Off tour and go up to $595 per person for a Helicopter tour. For a cost example, Surf City Tours 5 ½ hour Beverly Hills/Hollywood tour is $85 per person. You could also opt for the shorter hour Movie Stars Homes tour at $55 a person, so prices vary. The TMZ celebrity gossip tour might be fun if you have teens. Please contact Shore Hotel at (310) 458-1515 and ask to speak to the concierge and Mika will be able to assist you! Warmest Regards, Roberto G.

"Make sure you get a room with a balcony that faces the water!"
"request a quiet room on booking"
"Go for the ocean view! It’s worth it!"
"ocean view is worth it, rooms away from the elevator at the end are quieter"
"Make sure to ask for rooms without any obstructions by the windows, otherwise don't bother with rooms with a so-called view."
