Very happy with this sweet little hotel on the beach. If you're staying in Venice would definitely recommend this place. Building is quite old obviously but the room had been recently renovated and was very nice. Pretty spacious with everything you need right on the beach. Service was 10/10, a great little welcome to the states

Stayed here a few times in 2006 and 2007, loved it then, loved it now. Matt and company make everything as chilled out and relaxed as possible. When arriving pull up in back, they help you with your luggage and direct you where to park on the local streets - all good. The available beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach accessories... More

When i first got to Venice i thought this was not the part of town for me, or to bring my family on vacation. We'd heard that Venice was good for "people watching" so we tried Venice Beach Suites & Hotel. The parking was tight, but close and nearby. It's a busy part of LA with a lot of local... More

Great service when arriving long past midnight due to delayed flight from Europe. Room was great without any view but hotel is close to Venice Beach that you´re on the walk as soon as you leave Venice Beach Hotel.

This is an incredibly important review, detailing our office hours and late arrival procedure... While we have a live-in night clerk who is available to assist with planned after-hours check-ins, we highly advise guests to arrive during our daily office hours of 9am to 9pm so we can greet you warmly and in person, giving you the proper welcome to...

We had a great time. Awesome location, nice staff and cozy nice rooms. It was great being right on the beach. Easy and enjoyable walk to Santa Monica pier or bike along the beach. Close to everything and good options for food and drink. I would recommend this spot!

We stayed for 2 nights in May after arriving in the States. We wished it could have been for longer. Getting here was super easy on the Super Shuttle from LAX and we were greeted by very friendly staff - check in was quick and we were soon in our great Studio Room with views straight up the beach.

We're so pleased you stayed here, too! And that you took the time to share your experiences shuttling from LAX and taking the local buses around. We're very close to LAX (just 7mi/11km) so getting here from there is a snap! If you don't want to deal with the hassle of parking, skip renting a car... take a taxi or... More

Maybe Im getting old, but on a Sunday evening being surrounded by lots of faded hippies smacked out of their trees on medicalised marijuana, has lost most of its charm, and Venice Beach has minimal charm once youve walked it once or twice. There are only so many times you can find the tired cliched anti capitalism statements interesting when... More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts! After considering all that you expressed, what stuck out for me was that you stayed with us on a Sunday.

Ok, the hotel is a little worn around the ages, but I believe it's over a hundred years old, complete with antique old fashioned lift. It's a little piece of history right slap bang on Venice beach. Amazing location, you couldn't be nearer the beach, bars, shops, restaurants and of course Venice beach's eccentric locals. The studio rooms provide everything... More

Hotel is well located right on Venice Beach so had nice view. We often just walked down the hallway and opened the large French doors and people watched with a drink. The Hotel itself was fine; the bathroom was very clean but small. There are some transients outside the hotel (most hotels actually) but we never felt unsafe. I would... More

Bob from B.C. makes some great points here and I want to expand on one to help illustrate what our hotel is and what it isn't... Hotels are classified from one star up to five based on size, services, amenities and facilities; ours is comfortably perched in the two star range. No valet parking, no fresh flowers, no bar serving... More

Very charming place in the middle of Venice at a great rate. We stayed here for two nights in the middle of the week with our 1-year-old son. Matt the manager was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We booked a standard queen room. It was on the second floor all the way at the end of the hall. The room... More
