In choosing a hotel to kick off our California Wine Country bike tours, we wanted a place with first-class accommodations and easy access to Santa Monica's waterfront & shopping district . The Shore turned out to be perfect in both respects. The rooms are very modern and ultra-clean, and the location can't be beat, situated between the Pier and the 3rd Street Promenade. Both of our tours started and ended at the Shore (with a trip to the Santa Barbara wine country in between), and all of our guests commented on how much they loved the hotel. Less than half an hour from LAX, the Shore was the perfect place to welcome our guests to California!

We've just returned from a 3 night stay with 2 little boys under 5. The location is brilliant! Our boys were able to play on the beach, and swings etc, exactly what we wanted after a hectic 2 weeks at Disneyland and San Diego. We were a stones throw from the 3rd street promenade shops and fabulous restaurants. Rooms were very clean, and the pool was just what our boys needed. Thanks for a wonderful staff and Thankyou to the staff for being so lovely.

Stayed here for one night whilst travelling from Las Vegas.
Room was nice and clean and we paid extra for a sea view although this was mainly obstructed by the palm trees. Really happy there was a blind in front of the glass shower and toilet as I would have not liked this room at all if it was not for that. I really don't understand why you would want to be exposed to the person your travelling with whilst on the toilet ????
The hotel is close to the beach and pier as well as some lovely bars and shops. As we were only here for one night it made getting around much easier!
We chose Valet parking at $35 but there is self park for $15.
The reception staff and everyone else that we spoke to were friendly and helpful.
The only thing I didn't like was that their was loads if stuff for sake in your room. Slippers if you wore them consider then purchased, towels, beach towels, mini bar, bathrobes. To much I'm my opinion but other than that great room and location.

Georgie T,

Thank you for choosing Shore Hotel during your quick trip to Santa Monica. We appreciate your kind words regarding our wonderful team. The $15 self-parking option is for day use only and doesn’t allow for overnight use. For our hotel guests the best and most cost efficient parking option would be to opt for overnight parking at $35 which allows in and out privileges during your stay. Thank you again for visiting us and please join Shore Hotel again soon.

This hotel has it all - location, beautifully appointed, outstanding service. Jen checked is in and could not have been more professional and helpful. Alex checked us out and was equally fabulous. I would never stay elsewhere in Santa Monica.

Just stayed at the Shore Hotel and had a great experience. Fantastic location and we had a room overlooking the Santa Monica pier - can't get much better when pulling up the curtains in the morning. The staff was the best we've experienced so far, everyone from the bellboys and reception staff were just so friendly and helpful that it felt like getting to someones home. All other staff we met also had a very genuine and friendly approach. Would definitley stay there again.

Room Tip: Make sure to pay this little extra to get a room with ocean view.
