Our experience was a short one but we loved it. The location is great the staff very helpful and the bed very comfy. Cant wait to go back again, have had very negative views of LA but much to my surprise Santa Monica is amazing.

We stayed at Shore because of the reviews and location and it lived up to all our expectations and more! The front desk staff were beyond the call helpful and the room was immaculate and modern, We overlooked the pool facing the beach so the view was paradise. Has to be seen to be believed!

Room Tip: Try and get the sea view, it will blow you away!

thanks to danielle for making our check in process, (which was fairly complicated because we were traveling with a senior and had some special needs) a breeze. this is my first stay at the shore, but so far I love it. The rooms are well designed and very comfortable to be in. Wifi is free, a plus at any hotel these days. the location is spectacular and can't be beat. a perfect spot to explore santa monica and venice from!

Thanks Shore team for another great experience! Mary at the front desk was awesome! She went out of her way to ensure I enjoyed my stay. It's the people like Mary that make the Shore hotel the best place to stay in Santa Monica!

Looking forward to coming back in early January!

We really liked our brief visit at The Shore Hotel. A contemporary 1970s feel with current and very interesting amenities. Very pretty, very clean. A boutique hotel that is worth the visit. And, just a wonderful location.

Room Tip: Ocean facing rooms are not too different than partial-ocean views. The difference is that you have to turn your chair at an angle a bit, and you miss a little bit. But not a big difference if you are suffering about downgrading to save on cost.
