This is a great place close to Venice Beach. The rooms are clean, large enough and modern. There is parking and free wifi. Though on the Washington boulevard, no disturbances or unwelcomed guests. I felt safe and the numerous food chains and restaurants on the same street made it even better. We walked to Venice Beach back and forth. It's... More

Located in a very nice & quiet area close to the beach, a clean & tidy motel well taken care of. Our large room included a king bed, writing desk & chair, a kitchen area with sink, fridge, microwave, even iron & board. Of course, a/c, 42'' TV and free Wi-Fi. Parking on site. Overall, a good value.

I had a really good experience. The room was spacious and clean as well as a clean bathroom with a giant screen TV with directv and only 2 miles from Venice beach. The staff was nice and polite. I didn't have any complaints. I will definitely be returning

Great, tidy and big rooms with a big bed for two. Nice and quiet location on a walking distance from the Venice beach and from great restaurants. The owner was really friendly and welcoming. Highly recommending the Encore motel!

Encore Motel has small rooms but it is on a good spot if you arrive from LAX and want to see Marina, Venice and the coast up to Frisco. Comfy bed, working shower with hot water. A small kitchen make it possible to make your own food but there are plenty of reastaurants around for a quick dinner or to... More

We have visited this motel multiple times and have always been satisified. However, we were just there and although the room looked brand new, the bathroom seemed rather dirty on the door frame, walls and ceiling. The toilet, sink and shower are very clean, but it is in need of a good paint job. How they got hair on the... More

I'm shocked at some of the positive reviews on trip advisor, I genuinely thought it had pretty on the nose reviews. But after coming here based on the reviews I read, I'm fairly pissed off. First of all this place is way too overpriced and this isn't just coming from my experience but also many other Americans we met that... More

This motel was just OK, but it was within our budget and seemed central enough for our quick two night stop over in LA. The location was good for us, less than 10 minutes drive to Venice Beach, 10-15 minutes to Santa Monica, 30 minutes to Hollywood (obviously depending on traffic). The bed was clean and comfortable and the bathroom... More

Stayed here while on a 2 night stopover from Europe to New Zealand. Clean room, comfortable bed, no poon on TV. Plenty of eating options near by and good whole food shop a short walk away. Enjoyed a walk on Venice beach. would happily stay here again.

The motel is 15 min walking from the ocean, but you can also take the bus which stops right in front of the motel entrance and it takes you to Venice and santamonica. You can park right in front of your room and the room was big and clean as the bed. The lady at the reception was very nice.
