Found it on Priceline but the rooms were sold out at the advertised price. I called, they honored the price for me directly! Sweet family owned place! Nice pool! Clean room with coffee maker (and coffee) mid size ref, microwave, sink, dishes etc! It is an older hotel but painted and clean! Tile floors so you KNOW it 's clean!

Sunshine motel is a cheap place to stay for a beach based vacation. The rooms are super clean,the room had everything we needed. This is not a chain hotel but a small mom and pop motel so don't expect the amenities to be the same. We had a small fridge,microwave, coffee maker, hot water pitcher, it was also equipped with...

Rooms were super clean! Staff is excellent!!! For travel on a budget, you can't beat this place. It is really conveniently located and only 10 minutes drive from Venice beaches. I would definitely stay here again and again!

This was definitely a budget hotel experience. No ice machine, they will hand you a baggie of ice if you ask. Need more towels, must trade in the used ones first. Had to pay $50 deposit for a second key. The pool hours are posted, but the pool was still locked up the morning I wanted to swim during posted... More

Very clean, very friendly staff and the family room was perfect! Little touches like a proper kettle for us non-coffee drinkers, lollipops on the beds and the two reclining armchairs made this an excellent stop on or mini road trip. There is a heated pool, although the wet weather stopped us from using it... It isn't in the most picturesque... More

This is a very good place to stay if you're looking for a bargain. VERY CLEAN -- even the parking lot was swept and hosed! -- and excellent service from the owner and family who live onsite. The room we had was a little cramped. (They could have taken out a table or two and freed up some space.) The... More

It was clean and the staff were friendly. It felt safe. The price was good compared to other places in the area. My one complaint was that it was way too hot! When we went in the air conditioner was turned off and even after turning it on it wasn’t much better than a fan. If you don’t like the... More

Had to stay somewhere for two days while there was some work being done to my home. After doing some internet searching for a clean affordable motel we decided on this motel because of its reviews. We asked and were shown the two available rooms and decided on the smaller one of the two. Its an older style motel but... More

While the Sunshine Motel is the older style, single story motel wrapped around a nice pool, it was extremely clean and nice. The rooms were a little on the small size, but being able to back the car up to unload it made up for that. The management was very friendly and helpful. Nice place to style and it was... More
