“Great little beach side accomm in hippy land”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Nice little hotel about 200 metres from the beach and marina.
A short walk or bus will get you to Venice beach. 15 dollar cab or $3 bus to Santa Monica.
We stayed here for 3 nights. As the other reviews say, nothing fancy but the beds are comfortable, loads of cable channels, rooms are plenty big, breakfast was small but quick and easy,NO FATTY BACON, service was friendly and very helpful. .
Good mexican restaurant next door. If you plan on staying around the area for a few days whilst travelling around california at a good price, i recommond Inn at Venice Beach.

Room Tip: free parking downstairs.

Close to beach and walking distance to muscle beach and strip. Continental breakfast included and parking available was helpful. Away from mainstream Santa Monica but still easily accessible for everything

Nothing fancy about this unpretentious boutique hotel right in the middle of everything great in Venice/Marina Del Rey. But it was great. Clean comfortable rooms, great restaurants nearby, right next to the Venice Canals, and the Venice Beach. We went for our anniversary and had a great 4 day weekend. Rode bikes along the beach to the Santa Monica Pier, ate at sang at C&O Trattoria, went to the Disney Concert Hall for Mozart, ate at the Water Grill, and saw the Getty Museum at Malibu.

But here's the thing....the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. These were really great people to stay with. We will be back.

This is a nice, little hotel with some Venice Beach funkiness about it -- a good alternative to the big Marriott. It's a few blocks up Washington St. so you're not in the middle of the beach hub-bub, though the Mexican restaurant across the street can get a little raucous at times. Our room was large, fairly newly redecorated in a fun style, and it had a very large t.v. The bathroom was small and the floor was cold so take your slippers. Breakfast was fine, if not elaborate, and there's a cute courtyard to eat in when the weather is nice. Service was friendly and helpful. There's a market practically next door that sells liquor and all essentials. The rooms have refrigerators. All in all, this is a good choice if you're looking for a low key, convenient, friendly place to stay.

Room Tip: For a quiet room, request something off the streets.

This is a terrific location ... two minute walk from the beach, surfers, music, touristy shops, dancing ... tons going on .... right beneath the hotel is a bike and rollerblade rental shop (much cheaper than on the beach rentals - I paid $18/day instead of closer to $27. Also the owner let me do half a day rollerblading and return them and get a bike for the other half all for $18. And in the end he charged me only $16 because I'd run out of change and his credit card machine was playing up. Parking at $7.70 a day is not worth it because there's plenty of street parking right outside the hotel.

Hotel rooms are clean and spacious. The central court is a lovely feature. Breakfast is simple but adequate. And there's coffee just across the road but don't stop at Starbucks, however tempting, you have to try Cow's End Cafe for really refreshing tea, pastries, friendly service and tables outside. I got a great oolong and walked down to the beach to watch a pod of dolphins having their breakfast and playing, I guess that's what Venice Beach is about - playing.

Staff were very friendly at the hotel especially Rasha on the front desk who was able to recommend a great restaurant and provide directions. One trick Rasha told me was not to use the Venice Beach address for your gps use 327 Washington Blvd, Marina Del Ray. For some reason on my Hertz Never Lost I got lost because there was no Washing Bld in Venice.

Complimentary WiFi always worked and was fast, Easy to LAX. I enjoyed my ride to Thousand Oaks up the Pacific Coastal Highway and specially Malibu Canyon Road.

Oh, and you have to walk around Venice Canals just out of the hotel and to the left for one block on the right ... early in the morning it is so pretty.

That kind of trip makes business a pleasure.

Room Tip: I was in 331 it's OK. Overlooking courtyard. Very quiet.

This hotel was lovely. It was in a great position. On arrival we were offered a bigger room for $25 per night. This loft room was fantastic. We had three teenagers and two adults and had enough room. I didn't hear any traffic or noise at all and we were overlooking a Mexican restaurant. Martin was fantastic and helpful. Parking was easy and only $7 per night.

I would stay at this hotel again

Im not reviewing the hotel, its amenities and location, despite all being outstanding, but more so the superb customer service offered to me by reception desk attendant Rascha. She is a wonderful person and employee who helped me immensely at a very frustrating time I had to endure upon my arrival (for personal reasons, nothing hotel related). She was kind, attentive and offered me quick solutions, all of which made my frustration and anger subdue and turn into positives. Thank you Rascha for your amazing customer service and people skills. And to all Rascha's managers: good on ya for having such a gem behind your reception desk. She is simply amazing, and made a huge difference to my life that night. Thank you once again.
