“Modern escape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Everybody was so welcoming, the room was so modern & I loved that it was close by the beach to go on a romantic walk. My husband and I wanted to get away for one night & it exceed our expectations! Definitely coming back.

The hotel is comfortable and in a good location just far enough out of Venice to avoid any madness. Cab ride to Santa Monica is $12-3 and 10 mins. We loved the location with plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The beach is a few hundred metres away. If you get chance, go for afternoon cocktails at the Shangrala in Santa Monica, the happy hour has a great selection and is perfect to watch the sunset. The front office and management staff were exceptional, nothing was too much hassle and they even refused a tip. I would stay again and recommend to all.

Room Tip: All the king rooms face the road which can be loud

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your review! I’m glad you had a comfortable stay with us and enjoyed our location. We are very fortunate to be so close to everything that Venice has to offer (Restaurants, the beach, the Venice Canals, and the famous Venice Beach Boardwalk). I’m glad you had an opportunity to explore Santa Monica which is within a close proximity as well. Thank you for your recommendation! We hope to see you at the Inn at Venice Beach soon!

Till next time!

We stayed just one night at Inn at Venice Beach and were very happy. The rooms are very cool and funky in deco, spacious and beds are really comfortable. Very friendly staff on reception always offering recommendations for places around the area. Breakfast was a 'help yourself' affair which I really liked, no pressure to rush and finish your food or eyes watching if you wanted to go back for more!

Room Tip: Try and stay away from a room near the road, can be a little noisy

We stayed here with our two children, 5 and 3, and had a lovely experience. We could walk to the beach, shops and cafes.
The staff were excellent and very helpful offering great advice.
The rooms were very spacious, clean with a lovely fresh retro decor. They also offered free wifi, and the complementary breakfast was a lovely addition, as not many places in the US offer complimentary breakfast. There was something all four of us were happy with.
Add Inn at Venice Beach to your short list when deciding on a place to stay.

Stayed 3 nights at the Inn. We had a room facing the beach and were surprised at how modern and funky the room was (in a good way). Orange and white are not typical room colors but it work well. The picture hanging over the bed of 50s(?) era beach acrobats was pure classic. There are many good restaurants and bars nearby and of course the beach promenade is something you have to check out. If you're a a runner, the run from the hotel to the Santa Monica pier and back along the beach is 10km and makes for great sightseeing. Other things to check out while there: Santa Monica 3rd st. promenade, the trendy restaurants and shops along Abbot Kinney Blvd, Getty Museum, drive the PCH

We stayed for two nights at the end of July, we had a mezzanine room with a sofa bed downstairs and asked for a fold away bed as we have a teenage boy & girl who don't like to share. All the beds in the room made it tight but the rooms themselves are nice & the staff eager to help.The breakfasts were fine but the location made the hotel perfect. close to venice beach but far enough along the boardwalk to feel safe ( Venice at night can be a bit dodgy). There are some nice bars & restaurants really close by, we ate at the Mexican next door which was excellent & a burger restaurant opposite which although a chain was also very good ( my husband said it was the best burger he had ever had - a jalapeno one!)

We came to the Inn at Venice Beach very last minute! The Malibu Beach house we had rented for the week had a problem with the septic system and we were not able to stay there. We just had two days to find another place to stay for 4 adults - and we found a gem!

The Inn at Venice Beach was just fantastic! The location was perfect close to the beach and beautiful Venice canals - but just far enough away from the wilder area of town.

The hotel is spotless, the staff very accommodating, and the complimentary continental breakfast was a great way to start the day.

Extremely well priced, we were able to get two rooms (one being a loft suite with great gathering space) for waaaaay less than what we would have paid for the house rental.

Things really worked out for the best, and we are so glad we found this hotel. I think we have found our go to hotel for our trips to Los Angeles and the Southern California area!!!

Room Tip: Breakfast room is on the first floor, so these rooms have a bit more traffic in the morning.
