Recently stayed at the Shore while visiting the area while my wife was on a work trip. Overall this is a nice hotel located in a great area. The hotel is a block or 2 from the Santa Monica pier and right across the road from the awesome beach. The staff at the hotel was great. Everyone was polite and...

The Shore is a great place to stay in Santa Monica. It is close to many shops and great restaurants with a wonderful view of the beach. The staff is very accommodating, particularly Luz Castro, who brought me my food each morning and exhibited a wonderful attitude and obviously cared greatly about providing excellent customer service. I looked forward to...

We loved the time we spent in Santa Monica at the Shore where we were welcomed like family and had nothing but 5star service the whole time we were there. Another hotel is not an option next time we're in Santa Monica. We were treated to a beautiful view of the park and the ocean in the morning with fabulous...

Luz Castro did a superb job delivering our breakfast. Everyone here is polite and very helpful. A great visit. We brought our dog and were very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were clean and glamorous. The location is perfect, across from the ocean so we watched a glorious sunset!

The Shore is a great place to stay in Santa Monica. The location is excellent - right on the front and a couple of minutes walk from shops, restaurants and bars. You pay for the privilege and like everything in the area its relatively expensive. For the price, I would say the rooms are a little small but they are...

(2/6/2016) They're seemingly in the middle of a labor dispute, as there were protestors when I arrived at 5pm Friday and at 7:30am on Saturday, so make sure you get a room facing *away* from the shore until resolved (if you want to sleep past 7:30am on weekends).

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.
