My kids wanted to stay as close to the Santa Monica Pier, as possible, and this worked! The staff was very friendly, although sometimes, they didn't provide all the info. For example, the didn't have room service, but didn't tell us we could get coffee & a bagel in the lobby (?). We would stay there again 😃

One of the best hotels that I have ever stayed at. The service was fantastic, the room was gorgeous, clean and comfortable. Amazing location, across the street from the beach, blocks to shopping and so many good places to eat. Can't recommend this place enough.

This hotel is beautifully appointed and is in a great location, right across from the Santa Monica Pier. The rooms are really comfortable and the staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. Will definitely be staying here again, the next time I visit the United States. The only difference will be that I will stay longer than I did this time.

Loved, loved, loved the Shore Hotel! It is a small, boutique style hotel with lots of amenities and flair. The staff is world class. Room was luxurious. Location was perfect and it even had a view of the Santa Monica Pier! A real ocean view! I will go back to the Shore!

Get the beach views! Good internet across the hotel. A bit confusing to navigate around with the two buildings. The bathroom has a glass screen through the shower with views on the ocean which are amazing. The Santa Monica Pier is literally across the street.

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.
