My daughter and I were vacationing from MI for her 18th bday. Had a wonderful night's stay. I want to point out some staff that went out of their way to take care of us in outside dining, even though it was an extremely busy evening. As it was Sun 2-14-21. Shout out to all the attentive, pleasant, and extremely polite staff: Lena, Manager went above & beyond for us that evening. Also, Megan, our server.. Danny who was helping out with food running, (waiter) even though he said he was the bellman. Koodos to him for helping out staff where needed. He was friendly, jokingly and excellent, prime service! Veronica was awesome as well... and Randall, our check out bellman, was so accommodating, as we ran late checking out. He was very pleasant, funny & we liked his great attitude to be an employee of Shore Motel, for many years now. The immunities were great, even while going thru this pandemic. Was a bit saddened that pool & hot tub were closed. But regardless of that, we had a nice stay. Excellent service was, indeed, rewarded with excellent tips. Thanks to all I've mentioned above. You ALL deserve a raise & 1 extra vacay day. 🙂 Thank you again! Cheryl Ricci

Hotel's Favourite
We enjoyed our time at the Santa Monica Shore hotel so much. I can’t think of anything they could have done better. From the start, we felt very welcome. I wish I knew the name of the young man who checked us in, but it was on Aug 10 at about 5:00, so maybe you can check to see who it was working that day (if a manager happens to see this) because he deserves kudos! We have 2 small children and sometimes when we travel with them in big cities, it seems like kids are not very welcome, but that couldn’t have been further from how we were treated by the front desk associate. He gave the children little fancy glasses of apple cider, and that act of kindness meant everything to them! In consideration of the current pandemic, I felt really safe during our stay. The entire property was very clean, and every staff member was wearing a mask. I observed staff regularly cleaning the pool area and other common areas. Parking was easy and safe. We were close to everything we wanted, so we never even used our car during our stay. We ate fish tacos and carne asada tacos at Blue Plate Taco down stairs and it was delicious. Definitely a must have. The room is really nicely decorated and we had an amazing view. It was described as a “partial ocean view” but that is a modest description because we enjoyed a gorgeous view of the pier and pool. We can’t wait to return! Thank you so much for making our time away from home so memorable!

The Shore Hotel is centrally located. We walked, rode bikes and drove around to various areas and found that the location was among the best we could have chosen for our stay. From our room we could see the pool, ocean and pier, absolutely beautiful! Randall was particularly helpful and service oriented while we inquired about places to have brunch as we were getting our bikes (free of charge). Our stay lasted 3 full days and we loved every minute of it. Thank you all!

I like this place. The rooms are nice. The views of the ocean are great. I have stayed there twice in the past year. This hotel is in a great spot. The balconies are nice to sit on and enjoy the sunset and fresh air.
