The Shore Hotel is a very good hotel in a great location. In the restaurant Marilyn was excellent and very courteous. Santa Monica is an exciting area and we recommend it. We will be back soon. Handy to LAX and right on the beach.

We stayed one night here to enjoy Santa Monica and the beautiful ocean views from the beach before taking the extremely easy and convenient light rail to USC for Trojan Family Weekend. The Shore Hotel met our expectations for quality and service as a top tier Eco Boutique for the price.

We unexpectedly needed to be in SCal for a couple weeks and ended up at the Shore. Great hotel. Small boutique feel but great service, amenities, and really fast room service. The food was good and satisfactory. We had a corner room facing the ocean. Great views, especially some sunsets and fun watching the street scene. Will be back.

We chose this hotel as we had never been to Santa Monica Pier or Venice Beach, this was a perfect choice for the last night in the USA, centrally located, rooms are modern and funky, was a great stay! Highly recommended for anyone wanting a change from the average hotel stay!

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.
