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. We were welcomed by a nice young guy who checked us in quickly and showed us to our rooms. The rooms are clean and well designed. The bathroom could... 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.

My husband stayed here our last night in California the view was breathe taking but the surrounding areas were terrible. You have to pay to park everywhere around here so be prepared. As soon as we got out of our car there was bums everywhere asking for money and cigarettes. Inside it was very quant. Nice hardwood floors and has... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts Julie Marie, especially regarding parking, which is at a premium here at the beach-front of L.A.! The atmosphere of the Venice Beach Boardwalk can be a bit intimidating for a first-time visitor, with panhandlers, homeless folks and skater punks hanging out amongst the Boardwalk vendors, vacationers and residents. It's hard to... More

Especially in this day-and-age of home sharing and owner rentals, I wanted to take the opportunity to remind travelers that one of the primary benefits of staying at a hotel is the access to the staff. We're here to serve you! If you need something - anything - just ask! More

I agree with all positive reviews immediately below. The facilities are good, especially the freedom to self-cater and reliable wifi. Having the kitchen facilities also gave you more space so you could spread out. You need to take a minute to figure out the shower. I had a partial beach view which gave me a boost every time I looked... More

Came here to spend a night here in Venice Beach and this hotel is in a perfect location! A very cute botique-like coffee shop with excellent coffee drink and pastries right next door.

We really enjoyed our stay at this funky hotel situated right on the Venice boardwalk. The rooms are nicely refurbished and retain a 70s style atmosphere. WiFi is good. Showers take a while to heat up but this presented no problem. What set this hotel apart for us was the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they provided invaluable... 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.
