“Great stay near LAX!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We drove down from the Bay Area to meet our daughter/husband coming in from Australia and wanted an accomodation for a night near LAX but in a nicer area! We booked the One bedroom Suite with Queen bed (rm. #211) which worked perfectly for our needs. The area is just off Lincoln Blvd but close enough to the Marina and Venice beach to afford interesting tourist visits/excursions. Parking is inside which is definitely a bonus. The pool is small but this was a winter visit so it was great as a dip after the warm hot tub. Breakfast was very adequate and very popular. Staff could not have been nicer.

Room Tip: We had an inside room as the street rooms could be noisy...lovely outdoor courtyard on 2nd level nea...

The hotel rooms are spacious and updated. Free garage parking. Breakfast buffet was adequate for you to start your day. Good value for the area. Staff are friendly and helpful. Midafternoon cookies were wonderful as was the flavored water available throughout the day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the street--the street noise woke us during the night.

This smallish boutique hotel was great value for money, comfortable and conveniently located close to Venice Beach and Santa Monica. The rooms and decor were modern, very clean and inviting with 2 flat-panel televisions and a small kitchenette area. Parking was ample and free and there is a small pool and jacuzzi area as well as a fire pit to relax by. The staff were super friendly and the continental breakfast was ample-with waffles, scrambled eggs, fruit, cereal and sausages all a cut above the usual coffee and donut fare.

Room Tip: Booked with the hotel directly after a search on Kayak. Gave us a corner room on the third floor-wes...

This is a motel with some boutique style modern furniture in the lobby and decent toiletries in the bathrooms. The rooms are basically cheap pine furniture in classic motel style, although everything is relatively new and quite clean. The walls are like paper - I was kept up all night by someone talking on the phone next door to me. The building itself is quite old and has really poor insulation so I had to keep the heater on all night (very loud and intermittent at best). Internet kept turning off so I had to keep reregistering. Breakfast was free and plentiful if not the best quality food - I've had nicer at the Hampton Inn. The breakfast room also has terrible heat/cooling problems. It was like an oven in there even when the outside temperature was only in the mid-50s. Staff are super nice and competent so do hope that the owners choose to invest in more than cosmetic upgrades and turn this into a true boutique. Location is very good. They should look at the Joie de Vivre chain and the Kimpton chain for ideas. Those boutiques are my go-to choices when travelling.

Room Tip: This is a three story motel so not much choice. The walls are very thin and the windows are single p...

I was skeptical when I booked here but was definitely surprised. The staff was very friendly and the room was spacious and very clean. I had no trouble with noise as other reviewers had. The breakfast wasn't wonderful but that would not dissuade me from returning. The price was great compared to others in the area.

Best price in the area! Newly renovated (formerly a Best Western). Free hot breakfast, free SLOW Internet & free parking. Rooms & bathes are small, but very nice since it's newly renovated. This is a small boutique hotel. Ask for a quite room in rear off the main street. Very positive stay! Paid for a queen, but they upgraded us to a king when we arrived.

Room Tip: You can upgrade from a queen to king once you're there if available free of charge. Ask for roo...
