This hotel is conveniently located between the beach-Pier and Promenade. You can easily walk to everything. Great restaurants abound. I stayed for 3 nights for a mix of sightseeing, beach biking and a business meeting. I would definitely come back to this hotel. It is very clean and the staff were friendly and knowledgable about the area.

Shore Hotel is perfectly located, the right size, attractive and comfortable. All of those things are valuable, but what really stood out was the attentiveness of the front desk staff. I travel a great deal so I can compare those folks to their counterparts in many places around the world - they're at the top of the list. A single...

The Shore Hotel is a very nice, modern hotel which overlooks the beach and Boardwalk. Stayed here for two nights on a recent trip driving up the Pacific Coast Highway. We had booked an Ocean View room with a balcony right at the front of the hotel. The views were brilliant and watching the sunset from our balcony was lovely....

Dear Zorrofishy, We were happy that you enjoyed the modern design and the views from your balcony. I understand that you found the room a bit small. Most of our rooms range from 310 to 370 square feet. We do have a few suites closer to 500 square feet. Feel free to contact us at the hotel on your next...

Really enjoyed the location of the hotel, near beach, shopping, great restaurants and bars. Property was very clean. Staff was friendly, outgoing and helpful. Bell hop had great suggestions for restaurants. Loved being in a "hip" atmosphere. Perfect accommodations for a girlfriends getaway.

Drive down from Santa Barbara and this place is easy to find off Route 1. Sea view room is a prerequisite here albeit the rooms on the side can see in your room! Toilets and showers only for couples who know each other well and I'm assuming the adjacent rooms will also know your toilet habits too! Nice rooms and...

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.
