I enjoyed my stay in Santa Monica at the Shore Hotel, especially for its proximity to beach and shops. I was more than pleased with my Garden View room and was pleasantly surprised with a distant ocean view from the balcony as well as a seperate bathroom. I doubt all rooms in this category have as good a situation so perhaps I was lucky. I did experience external noise interruptions from the corridor one night however thankfully the rest of the stay was pretty quiet. Service standards were good and in fact I had exemplary assistance from the front of house staff when the airline lost a piece of my luggage but this is not a five star establishment with concierge services and room service so you need to be mindful of this when booking. It's a good choice for a few nights if you know what you want to do in the Santa Monica area
