Upon arriving at the hotel, we knew we were going to have an amazing stay. We were offered water and treated very well. The rooms are simple and beautiful and the location can’t be beat. So close to the Santa Monica pier and many conveniences. Special to shout out to the valet crew (Rick) and cleaning crew (Gaby)!!! Will definitely stay there again! As a side note, the salsa at blue plate taco nearby is so good.

Dear Megan B,

Great note about Blue Plate Taco! If you like to hang around outside I think there is no better place than our pool or their patio. We look forward to having you back soon.

Kind Regards,

Firstly Merlin at the front desk is a magician! When we checked in we connected with her, built a relationship and she was our go to person when interacting with the desk. She is a sweetie! Got us in early and a free room upgrade, loved talking with her during our stay and the additional care and attention she provided. Merlin made the hotel experience and is a gem!

The hotel is nicely located near the pier and there are many things to do and eat within walking distance. I am glad we did not have a car as did not need it and the parking fees in the area are very high. The property is nicely built and appointed and other than the daily resort or destination fee all amenities are included. They gave welcome drinks and had apples at the counter and awesome cookies later in the day. The room was well appointed and comfortable. The pool area is compact though nice. Also have a free computer/business center and nice gym. Pricey hotel though nice location if really of value to be near the Santa Monica pier or area. Would highly recommend the hotel if the right fit for your travel plans.

Room Tip: Work with the front desk staff for your wishes.

First ever stay in Santa Monica and Shore Hotel. I loved the location, next to all the shopping and restaurants and right across the street from Santa Monica Pier. Hotel was modern, funky and very clean. Rooms were spacious and bathroom big enough for 3 girls to get ready in. Beds were quite comfortable and view of the pool and ocean was amazing! $42 valet overnight parking, with unlimited in and out privileges was worth every penny. Staff was very attentive and extremely friendly. Absolutely LOVE this hotel. Coming back very soon!

Room Tip: Partial ocean and pool view worth every penny!

The perfect location for Santa Monica, only a few minutes walk to the pier, beach, restaurant and shops. The hotel is very modern with well appointed suites. The kids loved the bathroom! Not huge but certainly enough space for our family of 4. (Kids age 12 & 16) We were lucky enough to have oceanview room with a balcony which overlooked the pool and Santa Monica beach. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Check in we were offered champagne, cider or juice. The kids enjoyed the free cookies in the afternoons. The pool and spa were both great, lots of outdoor furniture and towels available. Great location, great hotel, would definitely stay again and recommend to others!

Fantastic location! 3 min walk to the pier and carnival and restaurants all around. 10min to go shopping at the promenade. The water pressure was low as it’s a green hotel. However the view of the ocean and room design was wonderful. Complimentary water and apples or cookies in the lobby and a great pool and bar to relax during the day.
