Very friendly owner, gives a lot of explanation of the area. Great room, had room 403 with partial ocean view. Very decent, clean rooms with small kitchenette and bathroom. Free wifi, good showers, very cool old lift to get upstairs. Rooms could use curtains, to keep it darker in the morning, but it didn't really bother. Location is amazing, right... More

We were in 308 third floor at the back of this small property with 4 floors. Ancient small lift. Views to the boardwalk, beach and amazing sunset. Excellent location centrally located between Santa Monica pier to the right and Venice beach pier, Muscle Beach and Venice canals to the left. Homeless across the street beachside from hotel, near the public... More

We really loved our stay here. This hotel is right on the beach, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, offering us advice on eating areas and transportation. The room was bright and clean, with partial view of ocean as advertised. Quiet and relaxing with good facilities. Would definitely recommend this for your stay at Venice Beach and would stay... More

If you want to stay at Venice Beach- Stay here! We when arrived at Venice beach, we were petrified! But when we walked into the hotel and the reception we felt instantly at ease. The guy at reception filled us in on a bit of Venice beach history and gave us suggestions of restaurants and bars in the nearby area.... More

This is wonderful; such good material here... Venice Beach is a special place. Love it or hate it, at least it spurs a reaction in people. The residents (both housed and unhoused) all add something to the identity; the flavor. We've had guests that loved staying here so much that they have moved into the neighborhood. We've also had guests... More

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
