The hotel is perfectly situated across the road from the beach, The Pier and close to restaurants and shopping. Could not fault the staff - all were very helpful and pleasant. Ocean View rooms are the way to go - great views of the beach, sunsets etc. Garden view rooms are a no-go at the back of the hotel and...

Dear Ponatahi, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience. I am very happy to read that you were able to enjoy the Ocean view rooms, our service and our location. It is true that we don't have a proper restaurant yet. We offer dining to our guests, around the pool, in room, and also sometimes...

From the welcoming during check-in, room service and the great ocean view from the balcony this four day get-away with my wife set the tone for a perfect mini vacation. This was the perfect location for dining, shopping, renting bikes and of course the Santa Monica pier and the best beaches in the USA. You have to pay good money...

The bell hop 2 year veteran the best thing this hotel has to offer. For real.

Partial ocean view was sold as Ocean View. No...

The bed was comfy, the room was clean but the view from the shower was unbelievable! The valet was "Johnny on the spot" with my car and it had a great locale for a walk in the morning for coffee and the boardwalk!

We stayed here with two kids and it was the perfect base to relax and explore LA. The larger room was plenty of room for four and it was a lovely combination of eco friendly and luxury. The location is ideal for wandering to the pier, shopping and fantastic food. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

When we stayed here I was so sick (ended up having pneumonia). The front desk staff was so concerned for me they put us in a bigger room with a closed in shower so I could have my own little private steam room.

The Shore richly deserves its #1 ranking on Trip Advisor for Santa Monica. We just completed a most enjoyable weekend away and know we will return. We have stayed at other places in the area and The Shore by far is the best. Outstanding location on Ocean Blvd. facing the Pacific Ocean steps from the world famous Santa Monica Pier....

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.
