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

We checked into room 401 Nov 1st 2014. It was older looking but charming. A little difficult to locate at first due to it being under construction and covered in blue tarps. Front manger was very nice as was the maid when she delivered additional blankets to our room for the roll away. We were away from the room most... More

First, I am VERY sorry for the unfortunate encounter you had. I can assure you that upon your reporting we took immediate action by taking the room out of service until the problem had been resolved. We did not put the room back in service until we are absolutely confident that the problem had been resolved. I am glad 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.

No facilities. You can get similar price in the area with a pool. Its well located for Venice beach but too far from the other tourist areas. Would also be great if they mentioned its under construction.

This review might be short but there’s a lot of information here to help paint the portrait of what our hotel is, what it isn’t and the general experience of visiting Los Angeles… I constantly scour our online listings to make sure our hotel is accurately portrayed as a 25-room, two-star hotel with limited services and facilities. The true value... More

You're very kind; I'll be sure to share this with Jude & Jasper. Also, I appreciate you mentioning the fact that you checked-in late, which illustrates our limited office hours (9am to 9pm daily). For those guests that plan to arrive late, we request that they let us know when that might be so we can do our absolute best... More

It was great to be right on Venice beach because after being out all day on the pier it is nice to be close. We met Jasper and Jude who gave us tips on Restaurants and the area. The room was very nice although we did not have a great view, we were very comfortable. I will say that all... More

I visited The Venice Beach Suites & Hotel between Oct 4th-11th. This was my second visit to Venice and first to this hotel. Venice is a very interesting place. As a Canadian I found it to be a whole different lifestyle, these people don’t hibernate 8 months out of the year. They are very active. Every morning I would see... More

This review makes me happy. I'll be sure to pass it along to Jude and Jasper... they'll be smiling just like I am.

There may be no one better suited than our good friend Dan to share a bit of perspective on how this historic property has evolved over the last 10 or 15 years... and adding a rooftop deck and restoring the facade of the front of the hotel will be a welcome sight.
