An older motel but for the price & location in Santa Monica it was fantastic. Short walk to restaurants & the beach. Bed was comfortable, front desk staff were really friendly & helpful. If you are on a budget and don't care for 5 star, this is a great little place!

We stayed here for a week on a recent trip to Santa Monica. Staff were super friendly and helpful. They have a great deck which was lovely to sit and have a drink after a day of sight seeing. The onsite coffee shop has excellent coffee. Rooms are really large and they have a car park. Great location with plenty of great restaurants and bars along Main St. I will definitely come back here.

Room was very nice, a bit dated, but cleanliness was superb. Overall experience was very good, staff was friendly. Motel is close enough to Santa Monica Downtown, but far enough to be in nice peace and quietness.

Stopped in totally by chance when looking for a last minute place in Venice/Santa Monica. They had a great room with 2 full size beds. I was with my son so we were happy for 2 beds. It was clean and comfortable. Price was good. No extra charges for parking or other dumb things that hotels usually charge. Location was perfect, 2 blocks from the beach. Also, even though it was on Main Street, it was very quite. I was very glad I pulled in. Staff was very friendly too.

For context - accomodation in Santa Monica and Venice within striking distance of the beach is expensive. And quite often - awful. Sea Shore was an amazing little find. Old school friendly service that puts a smile on your face, simple but clean rooms, and parking on site. Plus - great coffee out front! Some very thoughtful extras for the beach are available also. Really funky part of Santa Monica I hadn’t previously discovered also. Safe, nice food joints and lots of boutiques. I’ll be back and recommending.

Every time I come to Santa Monica I try and bag a room here. Unfortunately they are usually sold out or I’m only staying a night which understandably they don’t allow. I checked out earlier after staying here again for 4 nights and everything was brilliant as usual. Lovely clean spacious rooms, amazing staff and so friendly, all in an amazing location. Thank you Seashore once again - no doubt I’ll be back soon!

Nice motel with free parking. Centrally located with easy access to beach, Venice beach and Pier. Good sized rooms. Clean although a little tired looking. There's a cafe next door for breakfast or walk down Main Street and you'll find plenty of eating places.

One-BR suite was huge for 4 people, with mod kitchen and comfy furniture, walk to beach. Deck overlooks Main St, so you hear a little traffic until evening but also great soloists from bar across the street while sipping wine. Not remotely "noisy." Helpful and pleasant staff/mgmt, tons of beach gear available, clean, etc etc. Amazing deal. Perfect LA. Hope to return.

Very confortable motel, big room, great service (we asked if we could leave our car at their parking for a few hours after checkout and they graciuosly agreed). Walking distance from the beach (5 min), the Pier (15 min) and Venice Beach.

The best location in Santa Monica! Main Street is full of wonderful cafes and restaurants. It’s a 20 minute walk to downtown and the Pier and to Venice and the fun scene on Abott Finney. A three minute walk to the beautiful beach - this spot was perfect. Spacious and clean rooms with a helpful and friendly staff. Make sure you eat at Amelia’s next door! I stayed here in 2003 and in 2018 and I can’t wait to stay there again!
