The Shore Hotel is wonderful. Location is great. Right on Ocean Ave. a very short walk to the Santa Monica pier and the beach.
We arrived early and there was no problem checking in. The staff is friendly and efficient.
The Hotel is beautiful, from the public areas to the room. The room is on the smaller size but it was very comfortable and again, beautiful. We had a full on ocean view which was great. The beds are very comfortable. The bathroom was large and well supplied. The glass bathroom and shower are really nice. If I had any complaint it would be a few more outlets for charging all of the electronics, but thats a really minor concern. Television is large with a nice selection of channels, but with the beach steps away who really cares about T.V. ? Nice balconey. Although we had a room that was on the Ocean avenue side at night it was very vey quiet. The pool area is also very nice, with a large whirlpool spa. There is a complete exercise room where you can get a full workout. Nice business center as well. Free, fast wifi throughout the property is a real plus. The entire hotel is kept spotless, no, really spotless.
There really is nothing to complain about. Maybe a coffee option in the mornings in the lobby so you could enjoy the wonderful pool area while family sleeps in, but I'm seaching for any downside and its hard. Location, Location, Location. Beautiful design. Very comfortable. Attentive staff. Very clean. And a great value. I would return to this hotel anytime I could.
