4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The rooms have been renovated in recent months and are generally clean and well-kept. Flat screen TVs, new bathrooms, microwaves, mini-fridges all make for a comfortable stay. The staff has been professional and friendly and responsive to requests. Even the housekeeping staff make it a point to say good morning—something I have not found in other local hotels much.

There are plenty of restaurants within walking and/or delivery distance. The discounted rates are better than most local hotels. Covered parking is also a plus.

Room Tip: Washington is a busy street so if you want quiet ask for a room toward the back.

Good location, about 1 mile from venice beach. Just walk down the main road and you hit the crowds. Even though it was only 11.30 am the very friendly manager let us check in and even provided us with an upgrade. Quiet, big rooms, clean. Parking garage included in room rate, only about 20 min drive from the airport.
Nice courtyard with sofas to sit and relax.

Room Tip: We had the rooms to the back side and to the courtyard, both were very quiet.

The hotel is very nice and clean. The service was very good. The Suite we stayed had two rooms. A siitting room and a bedroom. The breakfast was excellent both in quality and service. There are many nice restaurtants nearby. It is a short walk to the beach. The pool was small but the water was warm.

The Best Western was a very convenient and nice place to stay. We were kindly upgraded because we arrived early, and they had availability. The room was generous in size, clean and nice. The complimentary breakfast was delicious in a friendly breakfast room. The second floor hot tub was warm and looked inviting.

The queen bed was a bit soft for our taste, but servicable. The Hotel is near the Marvin Braude Bike Path and the Marina, and the staff on duty kindly made us a reservation for dinner at the nearby Chart House. I would recommend this hotel, and stay there again.

You can tell how much effort has been put into this hotel. The staff are very pleasant and the accommodations are top notch. Extremely clean would be my top descriptor. Look forward to coming back for a beach trip in the summer.

My adult daughter and I shared a very comfortable and clean large double queen room with the usual ensuite facilities and including a microwave, a fridge ( no mini-bar but a liquor shop next door to the hotel ) and a selection of various teas plus fresh (!) coffee and coffee maker. Along by the outdoor lounge area there is an ice machine ( ice-bucket in room) and an automatic snack and cold drink vending machine. We were very pleasantly surprised at the all round high standard of what is very much a traveller's hotel. Perfectly adequate buffet breakfast - with American and continental style options and plentiful supply of hot and cold food, drinks, juices etc, included in the price. Very pleasant and helpful staff, good free parking, free wi-fi throughout the hotel and two laptops available in the tiny but modern reception lounge area. Even a small swimming pool with a hot tub section and outdoor lounge seating areas on the first floor. No restaurant but a "Room Service" menu that is basically a takeaway service provided by several different local eateries - if you just want to eat in rather than enjoy the huge range of restaurants in the area.

We needed to be near the marina for a wedding and it was ideally situated for all our needs. Very easy to walk around the locality to visit the charming independent shops and restaurants along Abbot Kinney Boulevard, the famous Venice Beach, and the beautiful canals. For shopping we drove ( hired car may be cheaper booked from the UK!) to Santa Monica where there is a really smart modern shopping open air mall with all the big names including Bloomingdales and Nordstrom department stores ( with friendly and helpful assistants in all the shops) as well as Tiffany's, Chanel etc. The mall faces a huge pedestrian area with more familiar names like GAP as well as other USA brands.

We did get a deal on the price but I would definitely book this hotel again.

Room Tip: The Ist floor (this is the 'second' floor in USA) is handy for the vending machines, the po...
