VBS&Hotel was the perfect hotel in the perfect location for me. Right on the beach? check. Great little room with a view of the beach? check. Fantastic staff service despite a rainy day and construction? check. Great value for money? check. Cannot recommend this hotel enough or its location. Easy options for inexpensive bus transportation to take to downtown, santa... More

How or where can I begin? This hotel is right in the heart of Venice beach... in sunny California! Now I know why the beach boys wrote cool songs that about this place(and the girls there)...or the late tupac(and many others) kept rapping about it(overall California that is)! The beach is right in front of this hotel...everyday....every night...with it's colorful... More

This is a great primer for what to expect from our historic beach-front hotel, with cool pics attached as well. The only point I would counter with is that our housekeepers are top-notch and have all been with us for years; they're trust-worthy, dependable and kind. Everything else is good advice! More

First thing I'll say about this place is that we arrived at around 9.30am after 16 hours on a plane, and they checked us in to a room straight away. Legends. Initially I was a bit put off by the homeless people in the area (note I'd never been to LA before) so I was a bit dubious, but truth... More

I have to say, I was a bit hesitant to stay right on the boardwalk on Venice Beach,because of the hub bub and things you hear about the homeless... but it was a perfect stay and we had a lot of fun. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights before going on a cruise out of Long Beach with... More

The property is located right on the beach,so expect noise at night from people coming out of the bars. The room itself is clean & tidy if a little small. I perhaps would not stay right on the beach next time I visit Venice beach.

Very important points here regarding our location... If you want a peaceful & quiet place to stay when you visit L.A., our hotel might not be the best fit; the Boardwalk environment with its lively store-fronts and performers can be boisterous to say the least, especially on summer weekends. However, if you want unparalleled access to the Boardwalk and beach,... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in July 2013. We loved the hotel's character and quirkiness, and everyone we bumped into seemed to be enjoying themselves (as we did). Venice provides a wonderful contrast to Santa Monica, and we're really glad we got to experience a slice of the city's unique life and colour. It was lovely meeting the... More

As the manager of a family-owned and operated hotel on the eclectic Venice Beach Boardwalk, I consider "character, charm and quirkiness" as high praise! We're so glad you got the "vibe" of Venice! Cheers to you! More

Our hotel experience is quite good! The hotel is not luxurious and doesnt have (all) of the amenities like the other hotels do. This minor issue will be forgotten when you exit the front entrance, because then you suddenly stand in the middle of Venice Beach! The hotel room is small, but charming! It seems like a scene from "friends"... More

great location in heart of Venice beach with delightful front desk team and really charming characterful rooms. Hotel going through some renovations which will make it even better with a roof deck. Just check work finished when you book as otherwise can be noisy but overall great value hotel. Will be back.

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
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.
