When we travel to Maui from the UK to visit our so we like to stop off for a night or two in LA. After using the big hotels, and grumbling at the cost, we went on a recommendation from my ex to try this beautiful old house now turned into a small hotel. It's right near Venice Beach Pier, so only 15-20 mins from the airport. It is a Heritage site hotel and kept gloriously clean! All the furniture fits the period of the house, beds are blissfully comfortable, rooms of an excellent size and even if you don't have a room with an ensuite you will not be put-off by the shared bathrooms - they are excellent. A Continental breakfast is available but you are literally minutes from restaurants of varying prices - and of course the chance to check out everything offered along the esplanade!
