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

This motel was in a really great location, close to the beach/starbucks/costco/everything else you could need. Room was very clean and the a/c worked well. The staff were super friendly, they saw that we were going to the beach and offered us complimentary beach towels to use. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay close to the...
