We are on a SOCAL college tour. Wanted to give my daughter the LA experience so a trip to Venice Beach was our first stop. Parking is hard to find and the side streets are super narrow. We lucked out and found free parking about 1.5 blocks from the hotel. Venice Beach's reputation is apt...but we never once felt unsafe.... More

Venice Beach is disgusting so, to be fair, this hotel is an oasis in the middle of all that crap. It's clean but there's no air conditioning. Awful. It's also so small there is barely enough room to move. The office people were friendly so that's a plus too. And they have laundry facilities, beach stuff you can borrow and... More

It has taken me a few days to figure out how to respond to this review. I don't want to debate because that would be rude and, to be quite honest, a few people do find Venice to be a little disgusting, dirty, dumpy, et al. Read the reviews of the Venice Beach Boardwalk itself to see. At the very... More

The hotel is located on the Board Walk at Venice Beach our room 403 had great views of the beach, it was clean, ample storage - double mirrored wardrobe, draws and shelves a comfy bed, kitchenette and 3 big windows that allowed loads of light and fresh air in.

You have to come to Venice Beach with the right attitude and know that most anything goes..... given that perspective this hotel is perfect for a visit. We were on the 3rd floor with a side view of the beaxh. They also have a rooftop deck with chairs. The room had a kitchen. Bathroom was on drawback - small with... More

Great advice here! Always good for prospective guests to know that Venice can be weird & wild (and thus, not suitable for everyone...) And I do appreciate you mentioning the bathroom, as well; we're never going to win an award for "spacious and luxurious" bathrooms! Have a great summer! More

The location is an interesting one being right on the boardwalk of Venice Beach. This makes for interesting walks and interesting people (many rather sad and unfortunate mind you). The actual sea is a long way away (the beach very wide) and we never got close.The hotel meets one's basic needs without being too humble. Some renovations on the go... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences, Brian. One of the best points that I felt you made was that while we are a beach-front hotel, the ocean is a good 100 yards/100 meters away, which can feel kind of far. Not far enough though, that guests can't see it from most of our rooms and our... More

The hotel looks newly renovated. My room was great, with clean paint, good furnishings, and no smell. There was a kitchenette fwiw. The location - in the middle of the Venice boardwalk - can't be beat. I called ahead to let the staff know I wouldn't arrive until after their 9pm close and they were very accommodating.

This hotel is in the heart of Venice! If you are going for the atmosphere and proximity to the beach, you really can't get any better than this location!

Thank you for giving our hotel a try! Considering our size & location, the information on our online listings and review sites like TripAdvisor, the parking situation here should not be a total surprise. At least now, when you next visit someplace like Venice or Santa Monica, you'll know and can plan accordingly. More

Loved our stay here. We had a beachfront room looking straight out at the beach, ocean and passing crowd of characters. Matt was most accommodating with a late checkout. Room (401) was big and had a real beach feel to it with lots of windows, natural light, raw brick walls and a convenient kitchenette. I hope we stay here again.... More

I stayed at this hotel Thanksgiving week. The room was cute and clean but it seems that the hotel is a place where LA locals get a room to sleep for the night so they can party in Venice. There was a party going on a few doors down and it was soooo noisy. I went to complain to the... More

This review is an excellent example of how valuable TripAdvisor can be in planning a getaway. Anybody who reads any of the reviews of the Venice Beach area in general and our hotel in specific will make note of the frequent mentions of the transients that camp in the Park and intermingle and work with the Boardwalk vendors. This should... More

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.
