Tony helped me bring all my luggage up and kindly greeted me each morning in the lobby. Weather it was answering all my question and concerns or giving me excellent suggestions the... More

Friendly and helpful staff throughout. 2 stand out. A young man who was working security on my arrival late November 30 was exceptionally pleasant. In house keeping Rosangel was extremely helpful, pleasant and went out of her way to greet me as she was working. I love good customer service.

I had 2 terrible experiences when I was last at this hotel. First, I requested a wake up call at 4:15 a.m. to participate in an extremely important conference call with the East Coast. I never received the call and when I spoke to the staff their excuse was that I asked the manager to arrange the wake up call... More

This was the final hotel number 7 out of 7 we stayed in on our driving holiday on the California pacific highway. We had stayed in the Shangri -La before going onto San Diego for 2 days and this was our final night before flying home via LAX. It was the location close to the airport rather than wanting to...

I was in Santa Monica for one night and enjoyed my stay at the Shore Hotel. The room was clean and cozy. The room attendant, Rosangel Gomez, made sure I had nothing to worry about once I got to my room. I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to LA/Santa Monica.

We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is beautiful and nicely run. Favorite parts for us is the perfect location-out one door is right across the street from the beach and the pier, and out the other door is the shopping, etc. and the staff - everyone was wonderfully friendly, helpful and efficient front the front desk all the way...

Stayed 2 nights. Overall impression is that the hotel is very good. The room and facilities are reasonably new and are comfortable, though I would say the room was slightly smaller than what I expected. The room I had was the "side/off ocean view" room (or name of that nature) but I wouldn't say I was able to see the... More

Very nice hotel that is right across the street from Santa Monica pier, close to many restaurants and points of interest. The Shore Hotel is a great pick for business or pleasure.

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.
