Have stayed here a couple times. Always clean and conveniently located. Pool area is awesome. Staff is very friendly. AC was a little annoying at night, rather noisy but cooled well. Look forward to next visit.

We stayed for two weeks with family at this charming motel. At various times we had up to four rooms. All the rooms have been refurbished and are very clean and comfortable. The beds are all new and all the rooms had new flat screen TVs. One of the rooms had a complete kitchen we could use for the whole... More

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

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 The hotel is slightly outdated and the carpet is in need of replacement.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
