“Feels like your staying at a friend's beach house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This hotel is in a great location right on Venice Beach. Our hotel room was right off the back lane parking lot so we didn't have much of a veiw from our room but that was fine as we only used it for sleeping and showering. The bed was very comfortable. They have cute vintage surfer art hanging on the walls. My only complaints about the rooms are that the bathroom is too small and the walls were paper thin. We were next to the stairs and heard people stomping up and down all the time.

The continental breakfast was the best I've ever had! There was good quality cereal, bagels, toast, fruit, juice and coffee. The rooftop eating area was great. It was a lovely experience to sit up there in the morning sun, watching the joggers go by as you ate breakfast. There were a limited amount of chairs up there so my only suggestion for improvement is to add more chairs.

The guy at the front desk was great. I don't remember his name but he was very friendly and always happy to recomend a resturant or give directions.

I actually didn't care much for the Venice Beach area. It seemed a little passed it's prime, but if I ever return I would stay at this hotel again.

This is a very quaint, comfortable Hotel. The bed was super soft and the ocean view room was well worth the price. Nice outdoor shared patio to relax on or an upstairs deck as well. The manager Greg very nice and helpful. Next time I am in L.A. I will stay here again!!

My sister n law and I stayed here for a week and it was fantastic. Greg made us feel welcome from when we first arrived. His hotel is located right next on the Water Front by the Pier, it was peaceful, the maid service is excellent, continental breakfast every morning. All the shops are right there. Muscle Beach and Santa Monica Pier are in walking distance as well as the famous Venice Canals. We were able to shop, eat and relax in peace. While there we were able to see the Whales migrating, dolphins and seal lions. Greg your the best!! Thank you and I highly recommend your Hotel to everyone!! We are back in Alaska now and believe me, we wish we were still right there in Room 14!

Room Tip: Our room was located in the middle of the top floor but there is a top balcony that is always open t...

I flew in from London and stayed at the Hotel this Christmas for about ten nights with my Son.
It has lots of things going for it and I honestly can't think of any draw backs, I have listed the best features below;

Great location, right on the beach, you can hear the surf pounding at night- Perfectly placed for walks along the Venice Beach Boardwalk, lots of good local restaurants. It was quiet enough to sleep yet close enough to the bars and shops that you had lots of palces to visit
Friendly knowledgable and helpful Greg (Manager)
Excellent Buffet Breakfast (Bagels, Cheese, Jams,Cereals, Fresh Fruit, Teas, Coffee)
Roof Top Terrace for lounging and people watching
Modern In room flat screen Television and Satellite System that was easy to operate
In room fridge sink/wet bar area and microwave (Not sure they all have this)
Good, thourough maid service every day
Free computer in reception for use and free Wi-Fi
Lending Library of Books and Magazines
Quality bedding and pillows!

Mail me if you have a question!


Free Parking

This place is good if you can get a good desk on it. It's right on the beach, minutes to 30 restaurants and has free parking so has a lot going for it.

We wanted to be near the airport and its only a 15min drive so perfect.

Only bad things are room size is really small and there is no furniture, so nowhere to sit and nowhere to put anything on like a cup of coffee!
Breakfast there's nowhere to eat (I think) we are in the room but its tricky without furniture. I'm sure in summer you could eat on the upstairs deck or downstairs patio. Both great spots.

All in all pretty good if you can get a good price oh and the beds are soon comfy!

A fantastic little hotel right on the beach. Greg, the manager met us and knew our names as we walked in the door as we had a few travel issues and had emailed ahead to let him know we would be in a day late. Personal service++. He showed us our room and the facilities and assisted us with transport and attractions. We had a fridge and microwave in our room, which seems to be rare in the US, we are used to at least a fridge in standard Aussie hotel rooms. The room was quaint and clean, great value and a good continental breakfast. Highly recommended.

This isn't a luxury hotel and the room was a bit rough but totally minor points compared to all the plus points. Right on the beach with an amazing rooftop deck, felt like we were in heaven watching the sunset over the ocean. The help yourself brekkie was a nice touch and convenient. The hotel is right in the middle of the action, close to a few fantastic restaurants and the eclectic Venice beach. Plus to get free parking was a huge bonus. This place has a cool laid back feel and really added a lot to our first experience of LA, am really glad we choose it.
