The main thing is that it is just a couple blocks from the beach. That means you can just wander down there to eat your breakfast or watch the sun go down. But, it's an old motel. The walls are not terribly thick and it's a popular area so you'll hear revelers sometimes. But they truly have gotten the nearby bar to quiet down the music, even on a Friday, past 10. If staying at a big corporate hotel chain is staying with your upper middle class friends, Sea Shore is your regular middle class friends. It's not perfect. The faucet could be replaced but it's not broken so why fix it? But the people are nice. They'll lend you a couple of colorful beach towels and the shower is hot.

Staff were very helpful. Room was clean and well maintained. Great location.

Its cuter in person ! The photos dont do this place justice! Was stressing because my girls thought it was a bit rinky dinky but its above that. Its not the best motel but its better than others for sure. My girls and I went for a weekend and we had a blast. Clean room, No bed bugs. Affordable and only a few blocks from the beach ! Lots of places to eat and shop nearby. Give this place a 9.5/10.

Great place! So convenient to beach access, shopping and restaurants. Would definitely stay there again!

The staff was amazeballs, the room was clean, it's quaint and pleasant. I would definitely stay again!

The location is great and parking was easy and included in the price. One thing to note though is that there appears to be a night club across the street and it is very loud until late on weekend night

We stayed there a night and it was great place

This is an older motel, but the location is amazing and the staff were wonderful. If you are looking for a friendly home base while you spend your days at the beach, this is the place!

We have stayed here many times. We are usually in the one bedroom apartments, which are better. The bed and the single room was incredibly uncomfortable

We loved our stay there. The staff was amazing and the location is perfect. Definitely would stay there again.

Walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and shops. I felt very safe here. Great value!!

Close to the beach and dining.

We love the 1BR suite rooms. Since they aren't cleaning now, it would have been nice to have extra towels & wash cloths. Especially since one of the wash cloths was slightly brown when we arrived.

Very clean, older style motel. Great location, short walk to the beach and restaurants, short drive to fast food. Mostly quiet.

Nice place, great location. Needs a few maintenance repairs. Owners are great and pleasant. We would return.

It was great being so close to the beach at a more than reasonable rate! The only complaint I had at all was, being on a roadside room it was pretty noisy. Overall, great place and people, would reccomend and stay again!

Best feature of the Sea Shore is its location. Main Street is away from the crowds around the Pier and downtown Santa Monica, Shops and restaurants cater lo "locals" and are more interesting and less expensive. It's still an easy walk to the beach.

Didn't like the noise of the guests on the 2nd floor

Main St. Santa Monica CA

Hi Christopher,Thank you for your feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes, we are an older motel but we try to keep it fresh and clean to have some nostalgia of how it used to be back in the 60’s. Please come again!

Thank you for your feedback. Strange though, all the beds were bought at the same time. We will have to investigate further. Thank you for your stay.
