Rooms are good, especially for what you pay. Not cheap of course for LA prices is it good value. Location very good, walking distance to almost everything in Venice, even it's better to use car in LA. For longer stay than 3 nights some things are missing, for example you don't get hangers. And receptionist should be kinder, it doesn't... More

I own a condo in Santa Monica and I needed a place to spend a couple of nights while I had my floors refinished. To my surprise there is a wonderful place to stay very close to the million dollar landscape of Santa Monica. Very clean, comfortable , state of the art TV, all this for an incredible $85 a... More

My first impression (seriously) of the street view of the hotel was, "Oooh, what have I done?" But as you enter the gate of the hotel, the scene changes drastically. First, it's a cute place. The staff is very friendly in checking you in and can answer your questions about the area. You are about a 1-mile walk from Venice... More

Stayed here because everything closer to Venice Beach was 3- 4 times more money and or booked up. Big mistake. VERY VERY VERY dirty. I mentioned this to the owners when we left and told them in the politest way possible and they got angry. Argued that it was very clean. Yikes

We slept like babies, this bed is... More

This motel is fine for a night or two in the area. Reception staff very friendly, lots of nice touches such as bottle of water in fridge, tube of toothpaste etc. Probably wouldn't have stayed there if we were going by appearance but its a good value for money option in a reasonable location

We stayed here for 4 nights! Quick check-inn, across Starbucks, Costco, In-N-Out Burger, free and quickly wi-fi. There's a bus stop at the street, $1,- bus to Venice beach, which takes 10 minutes! Next time I would choose this motel again... Only Porn comes on immediately when you put the TV on!

After discovering porn on every channel I requested and was, supposedly, granted a refund in the amount of $102.60. I immediately booked a room at the Ramada Inn down the road at a cheaper price. Recently, I checked my credit card statement and noticed that the refund never went through and that, essentially, I was issued a fake refund. The... More

This place is very affordable and in a decent location, with free parking, free WiFi, and a Starbucks, Costco, In-N-Out Burger within easy walking distance. The beach is a short drive (or a long walk) from here. Room is pretty clean, but not attractive. There's a nice big Vizio HDTV which we didn't use, but the WiFi worked well, so... More

We had read about the porn problem this motel has and thought it was a bit of a joke. Then we arrived. We put on the TV and it goes straight to a porn channel. We then saw that there are instructions on how to use the TV beside the bed. IF YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS you do not get... More
