We've stayed here for 3 consecutive years. This hotel could use some work on the outside, but is "quaint" as my boyfriend puts it and is very close to the race staging area and the beach. Recently remodeled rooms are cleaner and nicer as well. The hotel bistro has excellent food and service. The only negative we have is that... More

The place has been renovated and we stayed in one that was recently done. The general manager was very pleasant. The lobby has a computer for guests. PROS; The floors were spotless and so nice and shiny, NO ugly carpets here. Our room was very clean. Wonderful bed, small fridge & micro. New TV. They kept the old tiles and... More

Was disappointed with the exterior, needed paint and maintenance. Parking lot was small and hard to drive through. The room had no carpeting, just a vinyl type tile.The highlight was the very nice courtyard that the french doors opened onto. The worst part was how noisy it was. We could hear the couple in the next room who stayed up... More

This Motel is a great little place close to Venice Beach. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and have just been updated. They are still finishing the remodeling in part of the hotel, but you would never even have known any construction was going on. The pool area is great and the pool is... More

Don't let the reviews scare you. I was taking a rather long, leisurely trip down the Tamiami Trail going to 'old Florida' motels sightseeing. Booked 3 nights online, liked it so much ended up staying eight days. Great rates, great room, pool, location etc. After checking in, I drove around the building to room. When I first pulled up, it... More

Room size was average and this one could have used some updating, but it was clean and the bed was nice. However - the bathroom window wouldn't completely close (opened to a semi-creepy back parking area), the sink drained very slowly, and in the morning (thank goodness) the toilet leaked, flooding the bathroom. This probably doesn't happen with every room,... More

We were disappointed when we arrived and considered changing our plans. There was trash outside our entry door. The hotel is slightly outdated and the carpet is in need of replacement. Not a comfortable night sleep. We enjoyed the pool area and the location was close to Venice Beach which was nice. We stayed in three different places on this... More

The cons: No bathroom fan, toilet was very low, which makes it hard for older folks with bad knees, the entry door via the parking lot was really dirty...but only on the outside... no problem on the inside. These were really not big issues but worth mentioning. The pros: Very clean (a priority for me) great location, each room has... More

We blocked off 11 rooms at a special discount rate, but I think they said the minimum for the discount was only 8 rooms. We had family come in town for my wedding (See Kelly Austin's review). This hotel is being renovated, so more of the refreshed rooms will be available soon. The rooms and bathrooms are on the small... More

My daughter's wedding was in Venice, and we had a lot of family coming from out of town. The motel allowed me to block off 11 rooms, at a special rate. The kids were able to enjoy the heated pool, and it was very convenient to have us all together in the same place. It is an older property, the... More
