1 night in Santa Monica at the Shore. Nice accomodations. Trendy spot. A bit pricy, but convenient location right by the pier, beach, promenade. Next time we may choose to stay a couple blocks from the beach if discounted.

A great location on Ocean across from the Santa Monica Pier and near the 3rd Street Promenade. It has a lovely (but small) pool and hot tub. There is a poolside bar and kitchen. They also have room service and breakfast. There is valet parking. We loved our terrace. When we noted upon checkout that the first floor room was a bit loud, the hotel provided an apology and a small rebate without asking - great service. Would definitely go back (but wouldn't choose room 102).

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise

Dear LBSanFran,

Thank you for taking the time to write about Shore Hotel. We are so glad you enjoyed the pool. A fun fact about the pool is that it is kept at 82 degrees year round by solar panels located on the hotel roof. So no need to wait until next summer to visit again.

Kind Regards,

Aaron Peaslee
Director of Guest Services

We just spent our final night of a three week trip through the US at the Shore. It is simply beautiful: great location (right opposite Santa Monica pier & a few minutes walk from the plaza shopping Centre). The pool area is lovely; the decor is lovely & the rooms are spacious. The best part of our stay was the staff: they could not have been more helpful. Particularly Randall who could not have been more helpful on both days of our stay. Marvin on reception was exceedingly friendly & gave us an excellent recommendation for a restaurant that would suit our fussy tween.
There is one issue, though: at 530pm when we went to enjoy the pool, there were six very loud protesters shouting at the hotel (apparently a union dispute). We left the pool area as it was not pleasant & our daughter was scared. We had booked an ocean view room as a special treat but unfortunately the protesters were back & woke us up with their yelling at 730am (which did cease by 8). We mentioned this to several staff members who all seemed uncomfortable & embarrassed. My understanding is that this issue has been going on since at least May: it is poor of management not to nip it in the bud sooner & leave the poor staff to deal with the noise & complaints. It's also selfish of the protesters to think it's ok to ruin people's holidays every day for months on end. As I said, this was a last night treat for us so that alone was disappointing given everything else about this hotel is fantastic.

Excellent hotel and service... Also couldn't ask for a better location. Marilyn was super friendly when we had our breakfast at the poolside. Rooms were excellent and everyone was really helpful. Would definitely recommend and go back :) I want to go back now!

We visited for 5 nights in July, having chosen it for its location. We had a. Very nice seaview room, but it is right on the main ocean avenue road that runs along the seafront, so is extremely noisy. The rooms are nice if not fantastic, the hotel does lack a decent place to have a pre dinner drink, the only option is by the pool, which is situated facing the main road and therefore very noisy. The pool is very small and claustrophobic, we love sitting by a pool whilst away, but we spent very little time by it.

As with everything in Santa Monica, I think it is over priced, we paid nearly £400 a night, clearly the current exchange rate doesn't help, but at $500 a night I could stay in the savoy in London for not much more. This is not the savoy, but then you can't see the ocean from the Savoy either.

The only meal we can comment on was breakfast, the service is hit and miss and again I considered it expensive.

All in all we had a great 4 days in Santa Monica, but won't be rushing back. Off to Las Vegas now, hotels half the price and 10 times better.
