"Great stay on the beach"
Room was very nice and comfortable. Even though it is on a busy street you could not hear a sound inside the room. Location is perfect, right across the street from the beach and within walking distance to great restaurants and the Pier.

"Good location, average hotel."
The beds are tiny/short. Amenities are few: a small coffee court on site and a make-shift bar. While a nice re-build, the hotel is still a motel with hotel pricing.

The Shore Hotel is a great boutique hotel in a fantastic location. We had a great stay. The rooms are comfortable, and trendy. If you want to see the beautiful shoreline, and have easy access to everything it is a great place to stay.

"Very nice modern hotel."
Our travel plans changed last minute and the staff so accommodating and helped us very quickly. I don't think I have ever had such an easy time with last minute changes. Check in was a breeze and the environment was lovely. Location is great. Only drawback was housekeeping didn't arrive until after we had been out all day so we didn't get our room cleaned the first day. Overall a really great place to stay. Loved our view of the pool, main lobby and ocean.

We loved our stay at Shore hotel! The staff was amazing and super nice, and really made everyone feel special. The hotel was really nice and new as well environmental friendly. The rooms were big and clean and we could not have had any better location. It was right next to the pier, beach and all shopping. I will return to Shore hotel next time I visit Santa Monica.

"Good, not great."
It was just OK. I expected more from this hotel, given its sleek designed exterior. The room was of average size and nothing to rave about. Amenities were great. There's also only a pop up bar in the evenings, which converts to a "breakfast station" in the mornings. All in all, just average and below expectations.

"Excellent respite"
I needed a retreat by the sea and wanted a place where I could park the car and just walk to interesting sites and botanical gardens. Shore Hotel, although less than 40 miles from my inland home, was just perfect. Everyone gave excellent service and was cordial, and the location let me walk on the peer, on the bluffs of Santa Monica, and to a nearby botanical garden. I loved it.

The consist smiles and friendliness of ALL staff impressed me the most. Everyone smiled and offered to help, ALL THE TIME. Room was unbelievable and the kids loved the see-through shower from the main room (there is an optional divider). The pool is heated and you can see the ferris wheel and pier in the distance. Highly recommend!

Dear L, Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. We are aware of the issue with AT&T service in Santa Monica.

"vive la Shore!"
I love the Shore. Yes, it is more costly than many of the other alternatives in the area however when I am there I always feel like it is a value still. I walk to the things I want do and places I like to eat and the views are outstanding. The staff are lovely and will do backflips to accommodate you. The only thing that they do not actually do is unroll a long red carpet when you arrive and do their rendition of "See Our Best", but it's close to that. Besides.. that song is played out anyway...

Great hotel. While it wasn't the most luxuriant hotel we've ever stayed at, it added up to the best. We had an oceanfront room which was a little more expensive but worth the extra money. The staff, from the top on down, was outstanding. Randall, our bellhop, gave us exceptional service. Thank you Shore Hotel!

"Great Location, Odd Shower. A bit Pricey"
The hotel has a great location but was a bit pricey, even with the discount, for what you got. Especially with the added $35 parking charge. The bathrooms were a bit odd in that the wall of the shower was glass and facing the bedroom. There was a privacy shade you could pull down but still made you self conscious.

"Hotel in excellent location."
Hotel is new but I would not consider it 4 star quality. I would compare it to a European budget hotel chain like Ibis. Minimum personal products supplied and extremely poor quality hair dryer. Lack of a bathtub a huge issue for us. There is no toehold or seat in the shower to enable ladies to shave. Also the soap/shampoo tray located under the shower head and makes a big mess. Both these design issues make bathing very inconvenient. Not enough electrical outlets near bed for proper efficiency. We travel with laptops and telephones. No real bar amenities available in house. Bed, bedding, towels and drapery were of good quality. Pull out drawers were very nice and accomodated all our packed clothes. Soundproofing was of good quality. Television was a nice size and user friendly. Coffee supplied was of poor quality. No real creamers available or mugs in room either nor was there a latte source down in the lobby. The location and our view was the best part. Accomodations did not provide a luxury experience for the experienced business traveler (we were attending a seminar at USC). It would be a wonderful destination hotel for young college spring-breakers and single travelers. Rooms are too small for families and no provision for such in the public area. We would not return to this hotel in the future.

"New, modern, and romantic"
Humble, in terms of the size of the lobby, but their staff (Adam) was great. Very helpful, professional, and yet not holding onto you in front of the lobby for a long time. The hotel as a whole is very clean and modern, and the room is pretty nice. The only thing was the parking (pretty pricey) and also the rooms are quite small. I supposed the above is due to the great location.

"Expensive..."
The hotel was in a nice location in regard to the Santa Monica Pier. However when we arrived at the 4 pm check in time they told us our room wasn't ready. It wasn't until 5:30 pm when we were brought up to our room, which was supposed to be a full ocean view room. They stuck us in a corner room with no view. After contacting the desk, we were eventually moved and they admitted that they had overbooked. Parking was also valet only and was another $35 a night. The whole experience was not worth the cost of the room. Won't be staying there again.

Fantastic location. The reception staff were great, very friendly & accommodating. We had a sea view balcony which made things perfect. The hotel pool & exterior look good and inside does not disappoint. Parking in Santa Monica is expensive if you want to be near the beach so hotel parking at 35 dollars a day is expensive but the price you have to pay for convenience.
