Great location in Santa monica

Would recommend great location close to beach and shops. Clean tidy hotel modern with resteraunts just out the door. Parking for car available at $40 per day a little pricey.

Great location

Clean rooms, pleasant stay. Great location , shops ,beach and restaurants! Only downside is paying $20 a day using amenities , fee should be elimated, you pay so much to stay at the hotel that it should be all inclusive. No offer from front desk attendant for assistance to take our lugage to our room.

Nice hotel, great location!

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Shore Hotel. Excellent Front Office staff who let us checked in early, gave us complimentary room upgrade to Ocen View room and also welcoming champagne on arrival. Would definitely stay here again. Great hotel, great staff. Excellent location, closes to everything. Bonus Point: FlyAway shuttle bus to/from LAX Airport is right behind the hotel, super convenient.

Great location opposite beach and pier

Modern clean and comfortable hotel opposite beach and pier. 2 minute walk to 3rd st shopping promenade and LA hop on hop off bus stop was out the front of the hotel. Heated pool and hot tub made life here very comfortable. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. We had an ocean view room which had an excellent view of the Santa Monica pier and beach.

Great hotel with beautiful view near the beach

Pros: Location, Nice Room, Cleanliness.
Cons: After service
Location: Sightseeing, Theme Park, Shopping, and Restaurants
Enjoy my stay at the hotel. Great location, great room, and very clean. The hotel is walking distance to the beach and the main shopping area in Santa Monica. Definitely will come back. I did have a small incident where I went for early check out before my flight in the evening so I can go out for sight seeing and left my luggage at the hotel. Upon check out reception advised I have some clothing left in the room closet and I've unlocked my luggage and requested to have them put into the luggage before I went out and about. Didn't happen and it took me just over a week to finally get the right person to help and response. The worst thing is, it cost me a lot to get it back.

Well located hotel close to beach and local attrac

Pros: Modern feel, great staff service, clean and comfortable
Cons: The A/C is noisy for overnight sleeping.
Location: Ideal location for Santa Monica retail therapy and restaurants, beach 5 minutes walk and promenade across street.
A very warm welcome and staff were excellent throughout. Hotel is modern and rooms well laid out and spacious. Ocean views are worth the extra and solid sliding doors to balcony keep out street noise. Pool is small so only good for cooling off and similarly gym is useful back up if wet outside. Only complaint is the noisy A/C as needed ear plugs to sleep when it was required on warm nights.

Everything about this hotel was of a very high standard. Very professional, friendly & helpful staff who accommodated our request for an early check in, beautiful clean, modern rooms, great pool area with attentive staff, right down to fresh apples on the front desk. Prime location right over the road from the Santa Monica Pier. We had our 2 children with us & would definitely choose to stay here again.
