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

Loved our stay at Venice beach, our hotel had a lot to do with it. You step outiside, and you are on the very colorful Venice beach walk and the beach is right there. What more could we ask for? The very friendly personnel had a lot to do with our pleasant experience. Very glad we picked this hotel, located... More

Did a lot of homework to find the perfect Venice beach experience and that homework payed off. The hotel is in the best location on the beach. It was not too hard to find, GPS and a quick call to the front desk. Parking is on street if you can find it but the hotel does work with a parking... More

I can't thank you enough for sharing the details of your experience here - directions, vibe, location - you really spelled it out. And I was happy to upgrade you; it felt right, you were nice! Is that something that we can do everyday? No. We have just 24 rooms and often sell-out in advance. But my clerks and I... More

I can't say enough about how exciting it is to find yourself right on the boardwalk on Venice Beach. If you appreciate historic buildings, incredible customer service and probably some of the best people watching opportunities on the planet, Venice Beach Suites and Hotels is definitely the place to stay. The hotel itself is a glimpse back in history with... More

With some guests it can feel like a simple transaction: this is your room number, here are your keys; make sure to close both the door and gate of our old-fashioned lift. And I'm not saying that's bad; that's just fine sometimes. But with others - a select, special few - it becomes something different, something grand; a moment when... More

This hotel is just wonderful. It's in a perfect location, you can walk in either direction from the front of the hotel and find restaurants and bars and shops. The rooms were extremely clean and had everything you need whether you are staying for one night like us or for a week. I would highly recommend this hotel. I wish... More

Recently my wife and I decide to take a break from our hectic Las Vegas life, so we headed to Venice beach, Ca. We stayed at Venice Beach Suite & Hotel for 2 nights, loved it so much, my wife and I both called in sick to work and stayed another night. The room reminded me of a cozy NYC... More

We stayed here for 6 nights. At all times management was so informative and helpful. The cost was very reasonable. Our room was a partial Oceano view on the 4th floor. We had a good sized bedroom plus kitchenette plus bathroom, plenty of storage space and the location was fantastic. We arrived late at night after nearly 24 hours travel,... More

GREAT boutique hotel right on the beach. Very clean and charming, perfect for one or two nights on the boardwalk. Jasper was very welcoming and very informative about area restaurants. Elevator broken when checking out but no problem they sent someone up immediately to carry our bags down 4 flights of stairs! Stay here for the fun of it!!!!

We arrived at night and it was quite hard to find.. After finding it with the help of a police officer, who just happened to be on duty strolling the beach.

Thanks for sharing your experience, Jessica! Finding our hotel can be difficult for first-time visitors... there are a lot of alleyways and one-way streets to navigate in Venice. For any prospective guests reading this, feel free to give us call or email us if you would like more detailed arrival instructions. Exploring new places is exciting! More

Awesome location, great staff and cute rooms. Really cool 100 year old elevator. Large homeless/vendor population camps out right outside, presumably to get the good spots to set up shop the next day to sell their wares. Never felt uncomfortable or concerned for our safety though.

Jesse, you nailed it! There are campers out as early as 5 to 6am that set up carts, chairs or cones to "claim" a spot for the day, either for themselves or for a vendor that shows up around 9am. It is all part of the informal vending economy of the beach-side of the Boardwalk. Can it be unsettling for... 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.
