Shore Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Hotel was close to the pier and hop-on hop-off bus stop. Rooms were amazing!

Nice hotel with a great location. 2 minute walk to the pier. Hotel pool was a nice break from fighting the waves with the kids.

Very pleased- excellent service by everyone at the hotel- all staff were genuinely caring and customer focused. Clean and modern hotel across the street from the beach and pier. Stayed 4 nights and enjoyed some of the many restaurants in walking distance.

The location was great but the pool was EXTREMELY small (occupancy limit 9 I think), rooms were very small but clean, one tiny shampoo and conditioner for two people....not what I have seen with other hotels at 1/2 price. Parking was extremely expensive but I think that is normal for the area. Nice modern hotel but extremely overpriced in my opinion.

The hotel was great. Very trendy and clean will dedinately be returning.

Within walking distance of our favorite hangouts. Room decor was nice. Outdoor view could have been better. We had view of garden and alley.

Could not ask for a better location. On the water, a block from the Santa Monica pier, and walking distance to down town Santa Monica. The hotel was a bit above what we would normally spend for a room, but the proximity to the water made was worth it. room was clean and well appointed. We liked the ability to save $10 by not having towels and sheets replaced. Good for the environment and us. Win, win. Staff were very helpful. Parking is a bit of an issue in the area. Rather than spend $35 for hotel parking, I parked in a public lot behind the hotel for $14 a night. I was not able to figure out if there was overnight street parking. I'd certainly recommend the Shore Hotel. Get up, get out of bed and go for a run along the LA beach, priceless.

Very nice friendly and service minded staff. The Shore is located close to the pier in Santa Monica and close to the shopping malls , good location. Our room was facing the ocean, but the street outside was pretty busy and noicy. The room was clean but rather small. No restaurant at the hotel was solved by a nearby collaboration which worked out well even at the very late arrival of hungry guests.

Comfortable room allowed me to relax while working.

The staff was great and I really appreciated the personal connections that staff members try to make... by being friendly, true and sincere ... I will gladly come back hopefully next year. ...

From the moment you drive in- nothing but CLASS! Great Customer service

For the second time, it took three calls to get a crib sent to the room (this happened on our first stay as well). No one seemed to know what was going on when I asked if the car service to the airport had been arranged. Also, the rooms are TINY. I could barely move around the bed and had to put my stroller on the balcony. If you have kids, this hotel is NOT for you.

Bit of a glamorized Motel. Cramped into a small site and completely lacking atmosphere. We were drawn to its central location but would not return.

Stayed here one night after 3 nights at ritz-Carlton marina del ray for conference. No comparison. Shore was just so much better in every way. Perfect location, modern, friendly staff. Didn't try the restaurant but it was packed and other reviewers loved it. Pool is small and hard to get a chair, but beach is literally across the street. Wish the conference would have been here!

This hotel was extremely nice for me and my family. Amazingly modern layout for the room itself, with plenty of room for 4 people and a great minibar selection. Fabulous pool and jacuzzi just downstairs, and the perfect location right next to the shore and plenty of stores for shopping. Overall a great stay!

The Shore is a hip, LEED hotel in Santa Monica. The rooms are clean and the location is great- right across from the beach and Santa Monica pier. We definitely took advantage of the valet parking and the pool area. I would stay here again if I'm back in the area.

very clean , we can see the beautiful sunset in our room clearly . very good!

nice location n atmosphere, medium comfy bed, very friendly stuff . hotel is really clean but make sure u get the ocean view rooms

Across the street from 3rd st. Promenade, the pier and the ocean. Rooms are really nice. The hotel looks new. Staff very friendly. The only thing is that the valet parking is extremely expensive,$35 per night. Would definetly stay here again

We chose this hotel first and foremost for location, second for luxury. Ours was a rare few days away from the kids. With no real agenda, this was a great central location for whatever we might decide to do in the he LA area, and a wonderful vicinity for morning or evening walks and abundant restaurants and the like. The staff was very courteous, the facilities well maintained and the hotel small enough that it felt cozy and boutiquey. It was more than we usually pay for a hotel, especially when you throw in parking and. Of sided there is no type of breakfast provided. But we considered it worth it for an indulgent few days and didn't regret our decision.
