Located across the street from the beach, the Shore Hotel provides ocean views and easy access to Santa Monica’s famed pier. A boutique hotel, it features 164 rooms and 20 suites with balconies. Suites feature a partial divider wall with a separate living area with a sofa. Rooms are drenched in turquoise blue with pops of orange, with unobstructed views from glass-enclosed showers to the glass balcony doors. The hotel features a pool and onsite dining at Blue Plate Taco, which is open Sunday through Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

This hotel and its staff compliment one another. From the moment we walked in; clean, courteous, and warm. I had a special request in order to ship a package home. Staff member, Brandon, went above and beyond to ensure I had the necessary materials to get the task done.
I highly recommend The Shore.

Fantastic hotel. Great location opposite the beach and a v.short walk straight to the pier. Johnas on reception was brilliant, down to earth, helpful and professional. Take that 'training' badge off. There isn't a need for it.
All staff equally friendly and helpful.
Top tip...Book a room with view of beach
Downside - cost of parking and resort fee (though it does give you benefits e.g. Free use of bikes)
