We were in LA for a wedding, and we took an extra night in town at the Shore Hotel to treat ourselves. They offered my nurse partner a HEROS discount which made it affordable to stay near the pier. Our whole stay has been a dream. While the facility is tremendous, the staff really are the ones who shine the brightest. James, Jesus, and Rafael served us at the hotel restaurant and made sure we were happy and full :) we could not recommend their kindness and professionalism more highly. We will be back!

The Shore Hotel is my favorite place to stay in the Santa Monica area! Beautiful views of the beach, always clean, and accommodating staff! My favorite thing is having table service breakfast by the pool! JAMES is the best waiter! He remembered me every morning, and had my order memorized by the second day! Knew exactly how I like my coffee and everything! This kind of service is what brings me back!

This location is great! Just a 3 minute walk to the pier and tons of shopping, dining and entertainment near by. The staff were incredible. Everything was clean and the staff was very helpful. Shout out to our server James during breakfast, he was great!! :)

Myself and my husband stayed for 6 nights at the end of our east coast road trip, this was our first time in Santa Monica, and our first time back in the United States following the pandemic. We were very happy with the Covid precautions that were evident at the hotel and felt safe throughout our stay. From check in Robert made us feel very welcome, making sure we had the full greeting experience, unfortunately the first room we were allocated was very noisy as there was a small dog in the room next door that was barking non stop, but we were very grateful that Edgar relocated us to a room that was lovely and quiet all whole stay, we found Edgar very friendly and welcoming at each interaction and he was always smiling. We had further good interactions with Madison who was able to accommodate a later checkout for us and aided in getting our passenger locator forms printed for our return to the UK. All in all if we return to the East coast I would be very happy to stay at the Shore hotel and would thoroughly recommend it to other travellers.
