“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2011

The rooms are cozy and clean, everything you need for a short or long stay is provided. The hotel has a very welcoming and home-like atmosphere. Great location, conveniently situated by the beach and not far from Santa Monica shopping streets and downtown. Very nice roof terrace to enjoy your cup of coffee while overlooking the beach and ocean or just to lay in sun. There is no doubt in my mind that a lot of this hotels pleasant style and atmosphere has to do with the hotels manager, who treats every guest as a friend. I enjoyed my nearly 3 months stay there and will be back!

Room Tip: ask for ocean up front, oceaview or any rooms on 3d and 4th floor - you´ll get a lot of light, possi...

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I lived in an ocean front unit for six months myself and enjoyed it. I designed the units for extended stay confort with the convenience of short term stays. Please come back soon. Carl

I just recently stayed at the Venice Suites for the weekend with my wife and 2 year old, and it was everything we hoped for. What else can you ask for nearby restuarants, LOTS of attractions, not to mention a friendly little corner store to purchase almost anything you need to fill up the fridge in the room. Over all the best thing about the whole experience was that we were right across from a wide open beach. The rooms were very well kept and comfortable for the 3 of us. There were many convenient amenities that i didnt think were included for instance towels, plates and silver ware, believe me Ive seen some place were towels were an addtional service. Overall it was a great experience and the friendly staff made it worth it.

Stayed at Venice Suites on 2 separate occasions for a month each and coming back in July. I am very particular about the places i stay, but never want to leave Venice Suites. I could not recommend it more. Great value for money, lovely apartments, gorgeous rooftop for lounging on a sunny
afternoon, the manager could not be more helpful and always tries to accommodate requests. Venice is an eclectic, interesting and vibrant part of LA and it is easy to walk to all the best Venice eating spots from the Suites, including an amazing Wholefoods Market.

Bad zone (far from Venice center): at night it's very dangerous because of the presence of lots of bad people in the streets.
Full of homeless who harass you asking for money, coins, cigarettes...
The "breeze of the ocean" is the stink of garbage that comes up from the street that people leave around.
Parking is 15 minutes walking form the hotel, and I ensure you: you won't walk around there when it's dark. It's really scary.
Rooms are very expensive compared to what you can find in a common motel, and badly cleaned (found hairs in the bed sheets).

Venice beach is an eclectic collection of artists, vendors, performers and people from all walks of life. That is what makes Venice, Venice. We have numerous families visit and return. We are on the quiet end of the Boardwalk near Santa Monica and within a 10 minute stroll to the center of Venice.

We imagined we were going to get a good deal. An affordable place on the ocean. But it was not that way. The parking is a hoax. The place is VERY worn down.

I think “juchegoes” has made an error in their review posting. There is another hotel here at Venice Beach which has a very similar sounding name and many people get us confused. Some of their guests erroneously come to check into our property and are disappointed to learn that they are staying down the boardwalk.
We keep our building and apartments in top notch shape and are continuously upgrading. We provide a gated covered parking garage a few minutes walk to the property.
I have verified our guest’s roster for the month of March and all of our New York City visitors are happy satisfied repeat guests.
The Juchegoes should consider “Venice Suites” on a future visit.

I'm in California for an extended business trip and stayed in Venice Suites this weekend. I thought they were perfect for what we were after:

-All the facilities you need, from excellent internet connectivity to a full kitchen
-Stylish historic building, tastefully and sympathetically modernised
-And, most importantly, an unbeatable location right on the seafront of one of the most vibrant resorts on the Pacific

I'm looking forward to setting up my next stay!

We are from Germany and made the classic Highway 1 tour from San Francisco to LA. We were looking for a reasonable priced, modern Hotel with oceanview, if possible with interesting restaurants and bars nearby. All this we found at Venice Suites. Clean, comfortable rooms, great view of the beach and ocean, awesome rooftop deck, internet and cable TV, parking space just several blocks away, always great service and assistance by the manager Randy. We will return for sure on our next trip to Southern Cal.
