We stayed at Shore hotel for 3 nights. It is in the close proximity of Santa Monia beach. They have a lovely heated pool and jacuzzi. However, go for this hotel only if you want to enjoy the beach as it is little far from LA downtown. We did not think of this and had to travel a lot for...

Great location, very good customer service. Rooms very modern only fault is balconies are small. Balconies overlooking sea are also overlooking the road which is busy. Lots of restaurants close by and close to the shops. Everything is in walking distance and the open top bus for LA stops outside which is great. Overall excellent hotel and good value for...

The staff was incredibly helpful, especially the front desk staff who gave us packing tape (at 6 am!) for the box of wine we had bought in Napa and needed to secure for our plane ride home. The pool bartender was great too, when they didn't have the port I usually drink after dinner, he was kind enough to take...

It's hard to beat the location of the Shore Hotel. Out the front door is the Santa Monica Pier and some fine restaurants and views and out the back door you have even more restaurants and shopping. The room we were offered was a bit small with 2 double beds, but we were told it would be more peaceful than...

Shore Hotel is the third Santa Monica hotel my husband and I have stayed in, and it is by far the best.

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.
