The Shore hotel is a great place to stay if you want to be in the Santa Monica centre, on the beach. The service was fine, and the room was adequate if not special. To be honest, I had hoped for more, but maybe it was just the room I was in. The prices are quite high. The pool was...

Therefore, they had to repack to move...

The Shore Hotel in Santa Monica has a great location! It's across the street from the beach, a block away from shopping and in the middle of a ton of restaurants. The hotel is newer, and modern.

We stayed here for one night - we had an ocean room which was nice but you are on a main road so noisy if you want to sit on balcony or have French doors open. Useful as there is a car hire company in basement (sixt) so very convenient way to start holiday when hiring car.

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.
