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.
