This is one of the oldest hotels in LA, and was where many movie stars looking for a beach vacation back in the 1920s stayed. Obviously Venice has changed a lot since then. The scene on the beach outside the hotel can get pretty wild, but that is part of the Venice ambience of today.To me the biggest problem is that the stores underneath the hotel have open fronts and blare loud music all day, so if you're in a room at that end of the hotel you are not going to get much peace. And these are the rooms that have the best ocean and sunset view, so if not for the beach crowds and especially the music, these would be the best rooms in the house.
The issue of noise also applies to several small hotel properties along the promenade. So if you really want to stay along this part of Venice Beach I'd say to stil go for The Cadillac, because no other place has this kind of history.And maybe if you're out all day the noise won't be an issue.
My other caveat is that the hotel has gone through a room updating since the last time I stayed there. It used to be good value to be right on the beach, but I'm not sure if that's still true. If the rates have shut up it might be worth considering one of the more upscale beach front hotels slightly to the north, in the Ocean Park area of Santa Monica.
