So far so good in this first day at this Venice-centric location. Right on the beach. Literally, there is no street on front for cars; it's a boardwalk and it's for bicycles, skateboards and all non-car transportation methods. You might think you're paying above average but you have to admit that you're 'in' Venice beach.

Love this place so much! Our second time back and wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Venice Beach. The rooms are clean with everything you need. Staff are the best, so accommodating! Best position with the best views. The rooftop deck is a great place for people watching, sunset drinks and for meeting other travelers. They have an elevator that... More

Thank you, Toni, not only for the succinct yet detailed summary of your stay but for sharing those excellent photos! Talk about a visual tour; our hotel, Betsy (our birdcage-style elevator!), the roofdeck, beer on a balcony, even Venice Boardwalk roller-blading guitar icon Harry Perry... what a showcase! More

One of the distinct pleasures in managing a hotel is welcoming guests back on a return visit. When you see the familiar face or hear the distinctive voice or laugh of someone that has walked your halls in the past, it's a enjoyable moment. We have deep appreciation for being your go-to place in Venice Beach. More

This hotel is very comfortable with a perfect location right on the beach. I happened to celebrate my birthday here when the deck opened. Stunning views and very comfortable. The staff is wonderful. The best part is walking out the front door right onto the beach with everything and anything you want or desire within walking distance. Love this place

We did our research so we knew we were staying in a historic hotel with lots of character, and were not disappointed. Love the elevator and the beautiful beach views!

Context is everything! From that you have to understand Venice Beach, with all its flavorings - from a great location on the beach, with a colorful boardwalk, filled with even more colorful people, it is its own entity and needs to be judged accordingly - so too, this hotel. It is nothing fancy (not like the Loews up the beach... More

You nailed it, Mark, context is everything! If you want a 4-to-5 star resort-level experience, stay along Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. It will cost you, but you'll be treated like royalty. If you want an authentic, 2.5 star historic hotel experience where you step right out onto a tourist Boardwalk that also happens to be a residential community; where... More

We had an ocean front suite on the fourth floor. The room was great-cross ventilation and views from multiple windows. The roof top deck was great- pizza and drinks served free on certain nights and a fire to warm up by at night. There is parking around the corner and the rates are negotiable - so bargain.

Central location if you want to be in the middle of Venice beach action. It was okay but not great for the price, the staff was nice and helpful. The area is ok, except for all those homeless people in front of the hotel.

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
