"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice stay. Great location. Room was very nice with excellent view of the ocean. Walked everywhere. Pool was quiet and relaxing. Really liked it here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Modern Vibe. Best location. Friendly staff!"
Shore Hotel is super clean. Right by Santa Monica Pier and walking distance to Venice Beach, 3rd St. Promenade, Montana St. shopping district, and plenty of restaurants all around the area. The pool is cool with a view of Ocean Avenue. The staff was very friendly!Genuine Expedia guest review
The location of the hotel was PERFECT--close to eateries, things to do, steps away from an amazing beach, gorgeous views of sunset and beach from the ocean side balconies. Exceptional, friendly service, perfect pool and spa tub with great music playing, fabulous linens! No recommendations for improvement!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night stay"
Nice and clean, very friendly staff and good service. We liked the location and on a sunday night it wasn't noisy either. For the price, the facilities and approach of the staff lived up to it. The double room wasn't very big but really nice. The only thing missing was breakfast at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet in a the city"
We stayed in Santa Monica to visit family and it was a great location for shopping, biking, good restaurants and the beach is across the street.Genuine Expedia guest review
A bit pricey but location, location, location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quite the Gem!"
Was not sure what to expect, but this little gem at the end of Route 66 right on the beach (well, as close as you can get in Santa Monica) was a super find for us. Everyone was extremely friendly, it was all clean and new and there was plenty of great restaurants real close by...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved proximity of beach park restaurants and prom anode overall a 10Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I love the Shore Hotel. I was there for business and it met every expectation one could need except for a few spots:1) Wi-Fi was very inconsistent (Had a garden view room) 2) Weather was unseasonably warm but the room and the lobby were not accomodative to this as A/C was off in both (no reason to not have your guests comofrtable at all times rather […] than play chicken with the weather).Small complaints for a great hotel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This is a great hotel"
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.

"What a great stay"
Everything were almost perfect , nice location and very friendly staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent all around"
nice sleek clean hotel in a great spot.. friendly service.. wifi was rather weak on my phone.. but other than that very nice place. We had a city view which is much cheaper than the Ocean View.. and while not as good maybe it still provided a nice view of the shops across the street and was excellent for people watching.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great boutique hotel"
Good experience , only issue was they cut bike locks after putting on railing after asking staff where to park. Also overnight guest should not have to pay double parking after 3pm. I was charged parking twice and I hate thatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Shore Hotel is an outstanding place to stay. It surpassed my expectations in all ways, but most outstanding was the staff. Everyone there treated me so well, that I could not help but think they were all expecting tips. However, it turns out they are just the most customer service oriented group of people I have ever met. They make everyone feel […] like a VIP. Even though my room type was fully booked on both my check-in and check-out dates, they gladly arranged an early check-in for me at about noon and a late check-out of 2 P. M. for no additional charge. When picking up my car from the valet, I was offered free bottled water. The room was awesome. I just love this place and will definitely return the next time I am blessed enough to visit Santa Monica. The location is awesome too. Right across the street from the Pier with beach and ocean views. The blue plate Taco has excellent food. I recommend the lobster tacos and all the other tacos. The beans and rice is outstanding. The location of the hotel is awesome. Bike rentals just a short stroll away. Lots of nice restaurants and good shopping surround The Shore as well. In fact, if it were not for the drive to Malibu, I would have had no reason to rent a car. Book this hotel and be assured you will enjoy your stay. Oh, as for the prices, I booked a Premier Oceanfront King Room. I looked at practically every other hotel in Santa Monica and it is the least expensive of any Oceanfront room if found. Enjoy your stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"My favorite hotel on this trip!"
This hotel is in a perfect location... Close to shopping, restaurants, bars, and of course, it's right across the street from the pier. The staff was amazing and the room was very nice and comfortable. We stayed in four different hotels during this trip to So Cal and the Shore Hotel is by far our favorite.Genuine Expedia guest review
You really cant beat the location, the beach is across the street! Close to restaurants and shops. The staff was great and had one of the best drinks ever at the bar. Ill be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Will be staying here time and time again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful hotel on the beach"
A bit expensive, but for the area, you can not complain at all. Immaculate service, amazing rooms, and a can't beat it location. Would stay again in a heartbeat!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Hotel with Excellent Surroundings"
Everything convenient and nice. Pleasant staff and lovely to lounge at the pool. Sorry I was only there for one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best in Santa Monica!"
The Shore Hotel was a great stay, And the staff was awesome. Alex graciously greeted us at the main desk and from there on the stay was perfect. Plus a glass of champagne during registration! The hotel was perfectly located on Ocean Ave, with walking of everything. The hotel itself was laid out well and was very convenient. We'll be back!Genuine Expedia guest review
Very very nice spot and lovely, helpful staff ! Room was clean. shore hotel is one of my favorites now !Genuine Expedia guest review
I was disappointed that movies were not availa.ble on the tv. It would be nice if there was some good coffee available. I have stayed in much less expensive hotels that had both.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The view of the pier was lovely. Despite the crowds on the busy street, our room was soundproofed to silence. The pool was a nice temperature. There were plenty of parking spaces available in the local city garages, so no need to park AT the hotel, unless you do not want to cart your luggage through the masses of tourists on the streets.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location Location Location!"
Perfect location. Ideal for entire family or just couples. Unless you have plans to visit far places, you don't even need a rental car.Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved the hotel, loved the room, loved the location. Will most definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice room but not the room I reserved"
The overall stay was nice, however I paid extra when I reserved the room back in March for July stay, to have an ocean view room, when we arrived it took abt 45min for them to get the room for us and then it was not an ocean view but only a pool view.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel there"
Everything was great minus the out dated brochures they gave for tours with incorrect pricesGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything about my very brief stay which was a business trip was excellent. Next time I will make sure to include a day for pleasure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great, modern hotel close to the pier"

Great location, excellent service, & really nice hotel! Highly recommended!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great, so close to shopping, beach and Santa Monica Pier. Be careful of the incidentals - they charge you for EVERYTHING! Friendly staff, clean room and modern feel in a downtown hotel settingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel and great staff!"
We had a wonderful stay at the Shore hotel. The staff was wonderful, the hotel was clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were relaxing. Great location too!! Close to Santa Monica Pier, lots of bus transportation, restaurants and shopping.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Pier"
My family (2 adults & 2 teens) spent one night at the Shore Hotel. We wanted close to the beach & pier, clean & safe. It met all of our requirements. Staff was friendly, although we asked for more towels and never received them. The hotel is very cool, pool area is nice and the rooms are great. We chose this hotel having never been in the area and wanted […] to make sure we were getting the best in the area (safe and clean being our biggest priority while traveling.) It is pretty expensive, but we were only there for one night, so we decided to splurge. Now having seen the area, all of the hotels in a couple block radius would have been fine. We really just slept and went to the beach & pier. I would definitely go back to the Shore, especially if you are spending more time at the hotel, it was a very nice place to stay.

A superb hotel with an incredible staff. Very service minded and nice. Perfect location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location if you like noise and traffic"
lots of traffic and noisy on a week end, otherwise quiet. Stuff was very nice when I checked in, gave me a bottle of American champagne whatever that is, stayed there for 5 nights, paid a lot for a very small room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Modern and hip location steps from the beach"
The location was perfect and the service was amazing! Champagne greeting, modern clean rooms and service oriented staff. I will stay at the Shore Hotel next time I am in Santa Monica!Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice. Walk to great restaurants and pier. Shopping too!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location. Bad service."
Awesome location but pretty horrible staff management. Staff was pretty rude. We checked in pretty late and asked for late check out granted 12:30. We call in the morning trying to extend another day and they lie to us and say that they are fully booked and we cannot extend another day. I go online to reserve a room and see that they have plenty of […] rooms available that day. They send up housekeeping banging on the door (we had the privacy please sign up) trying to wake us up in the morning when we were ready to check out by 12:30. On our way out I notice housekeeping banging on other doors yelling out different things like mini bar or housekeeping to make sure guests are up and ready to leave. There is no self-parking and valet is a pretty steep $40-$50. My first complaint online about anything ever! Overall was pretty annoyed at staff so we moved hotels in santa monica and was uberly satisfied. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, great location, great stay!"
We loved this hotel. It's very sleek and modern and right on the beach. Great location...you can easily walk to the pier, shopping, restaurants, liquor store, etc. We received complementary drinks and snacks at check in and even though we arrived early & they couldn't accomodate us with a room right away, they provided us access to the gym and pool […] area, which worked out great. I would have given a higher score on cleanliess & comfort but the room had full view of the bathroom. A privacy screen was available, but still felt a bit awkward as a family from a privacy standpoint. Having said that, the shower was AMAZING and they provide Aveda products which I loved. On the cleanliess, we did not receive a housekeeping visit after the 1st night but the hotel MORE than made it up to us and were very accomodating with all our requests.We had our 7 year old daughter with us and she was able to find other kids to play with in the pool. Overall a great family experience, would highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Shore Hotel staff was friendly and efficient. The rooms were nice and you couldn't beat the location. However they seemed to nickel and dime you! The amount of the rooms - $450 - $800/night when I stayed, they should have included some of the small stuff. We paid $35/night plus tip for Valet parking which I thought was a bit much. However the one […] thing that sent me over the edge was the continental breakfast - it was served out by the pool and they were charging $2.25/coffee, $4.00/pastry and $5/juice. Seriously??? This should have been included with the price of the room. They also have a "green program" where you get $10 off the price of your room if they don't clean it. I understand not changing the towels, but how is it green not to empty your trash or make you made for you! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice modern hotel close to everything"
Great long weekend stay, only issue is no direct restaurants in the hotel but so many choices in close proximity. Great time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance from pier"
We did a last minute ride to Cali we were just going to drive by the beach but decided to stay the night. We were looking for hotels and there was one room opened literally right across from the pier. We had to take it. We have never done anything like this, we called some hotels up but they were the most accommodating and the price was ok for one night […] 400 for a last minute hotel room. for things to be last minute they were really helpful and friendly.

"Clean, modern, hip hotel in a great location"
Wife and I stayed here only 1 weekend night before flying back to NYC. Hotel staff was very helpful, room was very clean, comfortable, balcony was great with furniture. Pool and jacuzzi were great and outdoors with a neat view of Ocean Ave. Location is right on Ocean Ave with easy access to the beach, boardwalk, short walk to 3rd Street Promenade too. […] Costly, but got a deal so tried it and it was worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"CONFUSING POLICY ON SELF PARKING"
I DON'T LIKE TO VALET. IS SELF PARKED. I GO DOCKED USD 60 PER NIGHT VERSUS THE 35 FOR VALET. THIS IS NOT CLEAR AND UNFAIR. ANOTHER POINT I HAVE IS THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE SLEEP FACE DOWN. THEY LACK LOW PROFILE PILLOWS.Genuine Expedia guest review
