We had a really enjoyable few days after a long road trip from New Orleans to LA. Arrived on a busy Sunday evening with virtually no parking, but did manage to find a spot at the affiliated parking lot just down the road (at the back, not the front of the hotel). Matt and the rest of the staff were... More

We had a short stay at the end of our US holiday . Loved the old style of building and great self contained room. Easy acces to beach for people watching and bike ride. We enjoyed a day riding our hire bikes down to the Santa Monica pier . Also had great photo opportunity of sunsets 😊😊

My good friend and I came to California for the Eminem& Rihanna concert in Passadena, but decided to stay in Venice Beach for the duration of the stay. Great location! Literally step out of the hotel onto the beach. Only a 30-45min walk to Santa Monica which flies by with all there is to see on the boardwalk. Matt provided... More

You and your friend were a delight to have as our guests and we admire your adventurousness! What didn't you do when you stayed here?! You proved - without a doubt - that covering the great distances in and around Los Angeles is possible and inexpensive (albeit time-consuming) with public transportation. Kudos! We hope to see you again! More

Venice Beach Suites is ideally situated if you want to be immersed in the Venice Beach scene. It is literally located in the epicenter. But if you want more peace and quiet and a little less craziness, I would advise staying elsewhere. The rooms were quite tired and the plumbing looks like it is original from the 1930s. The staff...

Our hotel is as this guest described… a 101 year-old building in the heart of Venice Beach. So if you want to experience a slice of history and be smack-dab in the middle of the action and excitement of one of the most popular tourist attractions in Los Angeles then you should give our hotel a try!

We stayed here only one night. They were helpful, the area at night time is a bit dodgy, so not recommended for single girls. The location is right on the esplanade and close to everything. Car parking about 2 blocks down. Overall rooms a bit tired but good size and clean. Bed was comfy. nothing flash, good views. A little... More

Great hotel right on Venice beach thus excellent location. The area itself is interesting at night (but safe) but transforms during the day with lots of people, stalls and activities. We only stayed one night but took advantage of the free bike hire to go over to Santa Monica pier (about 20 mins cycle) for lunch. The hotel itself is... More

I caught the shuttle bus from LAX which drops you off at the back alleyway entrance as the front entrance is the beach front walk in. Check in was a breeze, Andy was very helpful. As soon as he heard me come through the doors he rushed to help me with my bags and sat me down and answered all... More

While not an ideally-titled review there is a lot to work with here... I'm going to assume that "ugly on the outside" refers to the area around our Speedway entrance, which, being off of an alleyway, is indeed not pretty. But, the only time spent there is during drop off or pick up, so we can move on! Now, the... More

Venice Beach is one interesting and strange place. Quite unique in fact. Certainly worth seeing once. Not sure about spending more than a day there though. Lots of eccentric locals. Unfortunately, lots of homeless individuals who try to survive on that stretch of the beach. There's America for you. I have to say however that we never felt in danger.... More

I think this review should be required reading for anyone contemplating a vacation with us here in Venice... it's thorough, honest and insightful. While I wish we could have gotten a four or five point rating rather than three it feels like that might have had to do with our rates which while seemingly high in July & August are... More

This hotel is wonderful. Perfect location, fair price, great staff. Beautiful, clean rooms. Kitchenette in room, washer/dryer on site. Beach gear for guest use located in the office. Excellent holiday. Ask the staff about bike rentals. They're affiliated with a rental place and it'll save you money. Also the staff recommends the Fig tree cafe up the boardwalk. Foods amazing...
