“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for an overnight stop and woke up to the best views of Venice beach. Hotel is pretty basic but a nice room and bathroom. Everything was good about our stay however we were not advised about the charge for wireless until we checked out! If I had known I would have made use of it!! Anyway we didn't let this affect a nice stay in a good hotel in a great location.

Stayed September 2012, traveled as a couple

We stayed at the Cadillac for 3 nights for part of our honeymoon. When we arrived (early before check in) they let us store our luggage there and when we did check in they let us pick from two different rooms. The room we ended up picking was on the front side of the hotel with two double beds. The room was great very nicely decorated well cleaned, and the cleaning lady's were very nice and did a great job everyday on our room. The carpeting could be replaced but hey most people who stay here are on vacation and its the beach! When we first got to our room there was no fridge but we let the front desk guy know and they sent one up right away. The hotel lobby was awesome and they had computers and a printer in there and a pool table! Also the roof had a great view of the area but could use more chairs but was definatly preferable to a noisy overpriced rooftop bar!! Everyday we were there the front desk people were extremely helpful and knew the surrounding areas very well. We couldn't have been happier and would love to go back again!

I loved staying in The Cadillac Hotel in Venice Beach California. The hotel is historic so it may not be pristine BUT it is in a great, safe location, its clean, the staff is FABULOUS! They will do everything possible to help you get wherever you want to go, tell you the best places to eat & sightsee, & do everything they can to make you comfortable. The Cadillac Hotel is the ONLY place I'll stay in the Venice Beach/Santa Monica area. The roof-top deck is incredible & the best place to view the sunset without getting sand between your toes. For the record - the locals that some have spoken negatively about keep the area clean & safe, they didn't ask for anything & they don't bother anyone. Many gifted artist reside in the area. I enjoyed the hotel & the locals. I look forward to seeing them again.

I have just stayed at this hotel - nice enough but far from special. The worst thing is no car parking, and the guy on reception was not the most helpful in finding me somewhere. The lift was too small and difficult to use for the one luggage cart. I couldn't find any breakfast. Then the bill. I was charged $3 for the internet - you will be charged if you use or not. The final insult was when I asked if we could stay in the room for an extra hour before leaving for the airport. $50 for an hour! I felt that I was being treated like dirt. There are a lot of hotels out there, and I would avoid this one like the plague. The real bonus were the down-and-outs who live outside the front. They were great people to talk to, and it was fascinating to see them all gather when the free food and clothes hand-outs arrived. Great people. Sad for the girl who got beaten up the night of our stay. The Police sorted it out pretty quickly! Finally - the roof terrace (advertised). Great view, nothing up there but a few tatty chairs.

Room Tip: Front is great for the view, but the noise from the revellers is obviously more.

Stayed here for one night. Had room 402. Faces ocean. Amazing views. Clean room. Good size. At night it's a little sketchy outside but it's not too bad. Great location right in the middle of all Venice beach entertaining characters.

I stayed here for 2 nights and it was ok. During the day is great because is just in the middle of Venice sidewalk, where all the artisans are and just in front of Venice beach. At night is creepy as hell, a lot of homeless people, really solitaire, dark area. The cost was reasonable thinking that is just ocean front but it was ok. Our room was the corner room in the 3rd floor and our view was great.

This is the best location if you want to stay right on the beach. It is in the center of Venice beach and Santa Monica Peir. The rooms are average but comfortable and clean. The roof top is defiantly nothing flash but it's nice up there at night to catch your breath. I felt safe inside the hotel but outside on the side streets are where shady people hanging around. I saw a couple of drug deals and heard a bit of fighting during the nights but I would stay here again.
