“MadMen goes to Venice Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is a great little place to stay. The decor is super hip '60's right out of Mad Men. Our room was large, very clean, and had fun photographs on the walls. Breakfast was included and was perfect. The staff is very helpful. Location cannot be beat as it is a very short walk to the beach and you are surrounded by some very good restaurants. There is a bicycle rental shop in the ground level which is the best way to see the area. There is a great bike path on the beach and you can easily ride to the Santa Monica pier which makes for a fun, interesting and unique experience.

I stayed at the Inn at Venice Beach in September 2013. I found the room spacious and the décor was great. It was very close walk to the pier and restaurants. Although I didn't have any problems I found the staff very helpful and welcoming. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted a clean and centrally located place to stay.

The one-night stay was pleasant. Alfonso was a great host and he make sure that we were comfortable. He checked is in a little early since we were tired from our flight. He also took the initiative to book us a LA tour for the next morning.

If you get an inside room in the courtyard beware. It's worse than being in a jail. Imagine your terrace looks out to nothing but doors of other rooms. No light like a dead alley. The reception area desk is dirty. You can tell this is not run like a normal hotel. Its like a MOM and POP operation. Its actually not exactly Venice Beach since it is the last block of the so called border.The room decor is cheap..the place is clean..it can get noisy since you hear all the other guests going in and out of the other rooms all day and night.
You can do better in price and in comfort by searching the web. I cannot ope my curtain since anyone can look into the room. For $200 a night its not worth $50.00 to me. The other rooms face the noisy street below.

Room Tip: I dont think they have any good rooms.

Dear Valued Guest,

I’m so sorry to hear that we fell short of meeting your expectations. I am a bit surprised to know that you disliked our inner courtyard rooms. If you notice our guest feedback, these are the most requested rooms because they are the quietest and have a nice view into our cobblestone courtyard. I do appreciate you noting that our rooms are clean and thank you for taking the time to comment.

Sincerely,

Maggie Oliva
General Manager

Wow! The hotel was great; only exceeded by the awesome customer-focused staff. Everyone was super attentive from the front desk to the housekeeping staff to the breakfast team to maintenance !!! Loved the loft suite we had and hotel is only three blocks from the beach!

My wife and I just stayed here for 6 nights. To a person the staff was extremely professional and inviting. The new room designs are fantastic. And of course the location couldn't be better. Another benefit is hotel parking which is very much needed for this location.

Us, two Aussie girls stayed here, we enjoyed our stay, we liked Santa Monica which was 15 min away as Venice beach was way too dirty, busy, commercialised for me.

The receptionist was lovely,very helpful and friendly thx Rasha.
