I got to spend two nights at this funky boutique hotel just a couple blocks from the beach, shops and awesome restaurants. The things that made this five stars for me - the off street parking (only $7/nt), the free breakfast in the private courtyard, the bright orange color scheme in the rooms, the free internet usage in the lobby, the comfy beds, the cool vintage Venice beach artwork in the rooms, the location and the awesome service.
A 15 minute walk has you to the heart of Venice beach with all the colorful character, interesting artists and vendors and funky shops. Tons of things to do - rent a bike, go parasailing, get a henna tattoo - and many shops and eateries that offer more people watching.
Then go back to the Inn to rest and relax - it was a hard place to leave!More
