We specifically chose Shore Hotel for its location right on the beach at Santa Monica and not too far from LAX - we came in on an early morning flight from Oz and had an early morning connection to JFK after a brief stay here; because of the early arrival (7am) I tried to get our room early, in the...

The breakfast was great and my waitresses (Marilyn and Astrid) were good to us all week. Rooms were awesome and we had a great view. Hot tubs and pools are heated so you can look at the beach late at night.

I stayed 3 nights and the hotel itself is in a lovely place and the rooms are well appointed. However I hired a motorcycle locally that I needed to park over night. Every single thing that the Shore can charge for they add on to the bill. The service for a hotel of this standard was poor, very pushy staff...

After 18 hours of flying our room wasn't ready late in the afternoon when we arrived. My wife spoke with the manager Aaron and we were told it would be another hour wait with 3 tired young ones. We asked for some discount and were told no which was very unsettling since the contract guarantees the check in time. Once...

We stayed six days in May as a family get away. Hotel has good amenities and a location that opens up endless food and shopping as well. No doubt that the staff at this hotel has been carefully selected and trained ... They provided outstanding personal service to us all week. Whether it be Randall in the lobby or Marilyn...

while talking with the manager AARON, DIRECTOR OF GUEST SERVICE. Hope I 'm not mixed up his name. It’s not true+misleading+accuse is very rude! My issue is I think I was not clearly told that the parking fee is not covered by my company. When I try to clarify it, the manager ask me "CAN YOU READ ENGLISH?" if not,...

Dear cwwmoment, Thank you for staying with us this week. I apologize for the confusion regarding how to bill your valet parking charges. We fixed it as you requested.

My mom and I stayed here in a partial ocean view room with two double beds. It was such a nice place and relaxing. Freezing while we were there so we didn't sit out at the pool, but I totally would have if it were warmer. I don't have a "beach bod," but the people staying there seemed quite normal,...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
