Great location and friendly staff. The hotel was in the middle of being rennovated, surpisingly that did not affect our stay. The rennovated rooms were of a high standard, with plasma tellies, fridges and hair dryers. The staff had great knowledge of the attractions etc in the area and were on hand to help 24 7. It is situated just... More

Fab location, right on venice beach. Many restuarants within walking distance. Staff are very helpful. Parking available as well. The rooms have just been renovated, so they are lovely: new plasma tvs, high spec. bathrooms. If you are not looking to back pack but go to LA in style at a fab location, this is the place. It is reasonably... More

I have stayed there twice, and my brother stayed there once. I thought it was a fun place to stay for 20 somethings. I liked the room, and I loved being next to the beach. It was a short, but dangerous walk to many restaurants and cafes in Santa Monica. If you love the raw, bohemian atmosphere of Venice beach,... More

Because they are in the middle of a renovation, the rates for the Cadillac are quite reasonable considering the location. We stayed on the newly renovated 4th floor. Our room was small, but nicely appointed..but then we looked closely. Our room long, skinny room had 2 queen beds, an ocean view, a large, wall mounted, flat screen TV, and a... More

This place is a DUMP! We stayed this summer for one night and checked out early! We actually thought the room was a joke when we walked in... The smell from the room just about knocked us over, there was no telephone, the TV didn't work and the bed were disgusting. We decided to 'tough' it out so we could... More

This is the kind of hotel where guests are just an annoying inconvenience. The evening reception guy just threw some forms in our direction to be completed. When we took a moment to discuss which of us would pay the $10 a day parking fee. he told us to hurry up. The refurbished rooms on the 4th floor are nicely... More

Looking for a place on the beach for Labor Day weekend. Happened upon quite by accident looking through Trip Advisor for places near Long Beach. The Cadillac was fantastic from the beginning. From the friendliness of the desk staff (even calling in to make reservations the person on the phone made every effort to describe the location and the sites... More

This place is really, really nasty. It was so run down and depressing. The mattresses were old and saggy...I can't think of one redeeming quality except it is on the beach. We stayed on the third floor and spent $169, including parking. The walls are paper thin, the furnishings--gross. Lots of street noise. In general: disgusting. My opinion, Venice is... More

After a two month long road trip and almost no money left, Cadillac Hotel saved our holiday when Venice Beach Hostel let us down! We had booked the stay in LA early since we knew that the area around Santa Monica and Venice Beach is rather expensive. You can imagine the feeling when we arrived and was told that they... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
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.
