Way over priced, dirty, bathroom had issues, charged for parking and no place to park. Poor management, I'm never been more disappointed in my life. Wasted money! This room should be 1.5 star with a price of 65.00 a night. not 300.00 don't let the website fool you.

Wonderful facility, excellent restaurant. I recommend the happy hour (right off the beach with excellent views) with great beers, fun drinks for the young, and healthful contemporary appetizers. Rent the pebble boards on the hotel's beach (also nice breeze, great for kite flying.) The beach was clean and fine sand. Try the hot tub off the beach next to the... More

More for the mature crowd. Open and airy bar overlooking the water. A bit small so get there early as it always fills! Ask Lantz for his special margarita! (Muddled jalapeños & raspberries) Excellent bar food - try the fish tacos! Friendly patrons, attentive staff, great food & beverage in a mellow setting.

We had one night in LA where we wanted to be close to the airport yet close to Venice beach and Santa Monica pier. This location was ideal. It was a cute place, tiny pool, but a fabulous restaurant with a great happy hour from 330-7. Yum! Seriously. We took a cab to Santa Monica pier one day, but u... More

Kayak racing party on beach all weekend, hundreds of people, loud, around the clock, people passed out from drinking too much, sleeping on beach. (no romantic... More

I think this hotel is overpriced. It is fairly old. The air freshener smell in the lobby immediately gave me a runny nose. Allergy sufferers would not do well here. Had to sleep with the windows open. Balcony overlooking marina is pleasant. 15 min. walk to Venice Beach. Did not like having to pay $16/night for parking.

I have stayed at this hotel for a short and long term visit. The location is wonderful, you can go out to the marina and dine by the water at sunset. There is access to a marina beach for swimming or water sports. Room service is a bit expensive but plenty of places locally to eat. The beach is only... More

Love love love this place! I chose the JMI as the spot to house my Swiss friends, family and Chicago and LA peeps over Easter weekend and as the venue for my 40th birthday party! Everyone was extremely satisfied. The rooms are great, love the modern south Pacific style, the pool is warm and clean. The reception and ballet staff... More
