At the time we stayed here they were building across the road and will be for another 6 months which meant we were woken up at 7am everyday with banging and drilling. It kinda didn’t matter to me as we wanted to be up and out visiting everything we needed to do. The beach is within spitting distance and the pier a short walk. The people that run this place are great, very friendly and will always give you help and guidance for the surrounding areas. The rooms are basic but always very clean and made up every day. There isn’t a local store to this place but that doesn’t really matter as there are plenty of places nearby if you have a car. Parking is scarce and it’s a first come first serve, but saying that we didn’t have any trouble parking. There is a person working 24/7, so if you need help someone is always around. Hollywood is only 15 miles up the road and very easy to get to as is Venice beach which is only 2 miles up the road. Plenty to do and see and no matter what the noise was I would go back again.
