First time staying here and I gotta say it was beyond amazing! I would give this hotel and staff a 10 star rating if possible. I came here for the weekend to propose to my now Fiance and I'm glad I chose such a high end boutique hotel for my special occasion. I had the best views from their location... More

Booked garden view rooms.Very small 2 bedroomed room. Small beds and no space for everyones luggage. Arrived late at night. Opened the curtain in the morning and had view of a back alley with homeless people urinating. Very noisy due to deliveries being made to the back of the restaurants. Booked 2 nights left after one.

First the good: this hotel is a modern, well-appointed hotel with a beautiful view in a good location (assuming you are not in the back section). It directly faces the ocean and Santa Monica pier and beach are just steps away. Now the other side: for a hotel that is on the expensive side (yes, I know it is close... More

we stayed at Shore Hotel for the third time. We like the modern and clean room and the perfect location, near to the beach and the promenade. Room is not too spacious but sufficient for our family of five. Service was excellent, and we appreciated the breakfast opportunity at the pool area.

My waitress (Cheyenne) was very kind hearted and empathetic. She returned my medication to me. I'm very great-full people like her exist. We had breakfast very early and I would had been waiting...

We enjoyed our stay here. Rooms are good - we had a room overlooking the pool and the beach (just). If you want a full ocean view check this when you book - we thought we had booked this and it was definitely a partial ocean view. Not that this mattered in the end. Pool is a nice place to... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
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.
