My family (and lately me alone) has been staying at the Sea Shore for six years now and have never had a bad experience. We love the rooms (spacious and clean), the location (can't be beat) and the service (always helpful and always with a smile). So I am puzzled when I read about someone being unhappy. Our beds have always been comfortable, never noticed an unpleasant room odor (maybe we ALL have allergies?) don't ever remember having the air-conditioner behind the toilet (we've stayed in many different rooms) and for such a low price don't really care if there is no place but the raised shower threshold to keep our toiletries. In addition there are three great places nearby for morning coffee, one being the wonderful "Amelia's" attached to the motel (plus Starbucks and Peet's Coffee), a laundromat right next door, a short walk to the beach, a short ride to the Pacific Coast Highway (to Malibu and points beyond), and all the fun vibe of Santa Monica at your doorstep. I actually hesitate to write this review because it might jeopardize my chances for a vacancy next year! (Tip: Book early) But felt I had to speak up for my favorite place in L.A.
