Great suite. Old building like most on the strand. Old school elevator. Clean and plenty of room. I brought ear plugs and was glad. Like most on the boardwalk and flanked by alleys, the early am noise level can be loud. Good location and they get 10% off bike/chair etc rentals a couple doors down.

Excellent location, beautiful room, very, very clean and comfortable bed. Staff very nice and helpful. Wifi Works perfectly and there is even TV on demand. For the negative side: parking is far away from the hotel (although at least they offer a solution) and it costs 10 USD a night. For baggage drop off you can park the car for... More

Nice and clean rooms. For couples and families it is very good place also its too near the sea. By walking you can go to santa monica, it takes 35-40 minutes with good sea sight. Aroun there are so many homeless but its not create a problem they are just sleeping or try to sell something.

We are glad you like our rooms on our beachfront property here in Venice Beach. The homeless here are living more of a bohemian lifestyle on the beach unlike that of a homeless person in a bad neighborhood and are mostly very friendly. We look forward to your stay with us again in beautiful Venice Beach. More

The front door opens onto the boardwalk, on the northern (less full on) end of Venice Beach. Our room was clean, modern and comfortable. The roof terrace is amazing. With cooking facilities and a laundry, it is hard to think of a better family option to get the best out of a stay in LA.

Great location at the north end of the boulevard. We had a 1 bedroom suite for our family of 4. The 'pullout couch' was actually an Ikea sectional that converts to a bed and is MUCH MUCH more comfortable than the normal hide-a-bed couches in hotels. It was well equipped and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful before and... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
