Reviewed 7 January 2014

This motel is clean, comfortable and well-priced. Beds are comfortable. Bathroom nicely updated. Motel is right on Main Street and close to numerous restaurants and shops. Beach is a block away. Parking is free.

Awesome place! We stay here every time we go to LA.

Room Tip: The street outside can be noisy on weekends. A room upstairs will help if you are a light sleeper.

My wife, niece and I stayed at the Sea Shore in Oct for 10 days. 5 of those days I had to travel for work leaving my wife and niece there alone. Tom, the manager was awesome. He checked on the girls every day making sure they were enjoying themselves, giving ideas and tips on what to do, generally looking after them. Although this motel is basic the position is perfect, the service is excellent. There are numerous places to eat nearby, the beach is two blocks away and you find yourself pretty much half way between muscle beach and santa monica pier.

This motel is conveniently located within walking distance to both Venice Beach & The Pier. Close to very restaurants. A little noisy at night, but not unbearable...Would stay here again. The staff are very friendly and accomodating.

I recently spent 7 nights at the Santa Monica Motel and was very impressed. It is situated a few minutes walk from the beach in a street full of cafes and restaurants - there is also a cafe next door which sells delectable breakfasts. The motel is beautifully kept. The room was large, the cleaners are regular and thorough and there is a terrace on the second floor where one can sit and relax. The comfort of guests has top priority: they will be putting in quadruple glazing to cut out the noise of a restaurant across the street [which incidentally didn't disturb me]. I will be going back there, no question.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the 1st floor with easy access to the terrace.

Low key, beachy "motel" one block or so from the beach in a nice area of Santa Monica. Rooms are large and comfortable, nothing fancy. Nightly room rate was very reasonable. Parking was available for no charge. If we go to Santa Monica again, we would definitely consider staying here again.

I hate to write a negative review....so here are the positives. Very nice staff, helpful, gave recommendations for restaurants and good directions. Parking in rear of motel which was secure. Cute room with table and chairs, fridge, tile floors, wood shutters. Now for the negatives...We had a top floor room, king bed (old sheets and pillows, very hard mattress, did not look all that clean). Very, very noisy (woman vomiting next door around 2 a.m., people laughing and yelling at 4 and 5 a.m., going up and down the stairwell. No night time clerk on duty after 8-9 p.m. Did not feel all that safe and did not get much sleep! Room rate high but understand Santa Monica is expensive place to stay. Should have drove down the coast a little further and found something better. Last night of our trip and unfortunately the worst place we stayed all week.
