Inn at Venice Beach
Ranked #9 of 352 Hotels in Los Angeles
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 7, 2009

We decided to stay at this hotel due to its proximity to the beach (although we never made it to Venice Beach as we were only at this hotel for two nights). First looking into it, it is fairly small hotel right off a fairly busy street; we were used to staying in bigger name hotels with tons of rooms, so we were a little weary at first.

I must say, this had to be the best hotel we stayed at on our trip. It was a nice relaxing place, and very clean. The only real problem we had was our hair dryer broke- but we had a maintenance guy there with a new one in hand in under 5 minutes, we were very pleased.

Pro's:
-Very clean rooms
-Beautiful center courtyard open to sun (many rooms overlook it)
-Free breakfast (small, but it had a lot of choices, and was the only free breakfast we had out of any of the hotels we stayed at)
-A couple of the front desk people are extremely helpful (the others are friendly, just not as knowledgeable)
-Quite a few local restaurants in close walking distance

Con's:
-Parking was kindof tricky, their covered parking is only like 8-10 normal spots + a couple handicap; they do have an extra open lot next to it though, and there always seemed to be plenty of parking
-Looking at the room, it seemed a pinch smaller than normal- maybe it was just the layout?

Great location just between Venice and Marina del Rey. Easy parking. A hotel with a personal touch, eg. cozy courtyard. You don't feel you stay at a bland brand hotel.

Stayed here 5 nights in early May 2009 and really enjoyed this place. Great location - walk to beach and restaurants and very easy access to LAX, too. Parking was easy and hotel staff was friendly - hot chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon were a treat. A car is definitely recommended if you are visiting Los Angeles for the first time - lots of driving to get to different neighborhoods, towns, areas.

Rooms were colorful and clean , beds were very comfortable, and courtyard in the middle was a nice spot to grab breakfast (continental breakfast included in room price). This was my first trip to L.A., and while the city is not my cup of tea, this hotel was a nice place to come back to after a day of sightseeing. Being near the water and the beach is definitely a way to recapture your sanity in crazy southern California! I would stay at this hotel again in a hearbeat were I to return to L.A. - a great choice!

We really enjoyed the location both from an accessibility to the beach and good restaurants and a convenient place from which to get around. Front desk was very helpful and friendly. Only complaint was inadequate drainage from bath/shower. This was reported twice but not attended to.
Parking in the reserved spaces was convenient and very reasonable. Rooms were clean and reasonably sized. Breakfast , although not cooked, was rather more than the advertised continental and was excellent .

This is our second visit to the hotel and it was every bit as good as our first stay!

I love the location - a block from the quieter end of Venice Beach, good size rooms, balcony, air conditioning (individual), and a complementary breakfast.

All the staff we dealt with were really friendly and helped out with recommendations of things to see / do...nothing was too much trouble!

I would def recommened this hotel to others

This is a lovely and comfortable hotel. The place is walking distance (3-4 min.) to Venice Beach and there are several restaurants near by. We found the staff to be incredibly welcoming and helpful. 2 caveats though i) if you are looking for a romantic gateway, Venice Beach might not be the best venue overall. Although it is walking distance (30 min) to Santa Monica, it is not as hip and romantic. It is more geared towards street-ball, tattoo shops and street vendors. A very eclectic area but not a romantic gateway. ii) throughout our stay, there has been weird noises coming from our sink. not horrible, but can wake you up at night.

Thank you for taking the time to share such great feedback about your recent stay in May. We appreciate your recommendations to others! We definitely take pride in the service we provide our guests and enjoy making everyone feel at home! I will agree that there is no place like Venice, and that is why it is one of the most popular beach destinations in Southern California. Venice is unique and it's individuality draws people from all over the world. Thank you for the opportunity to serve your lodging needs! We will be sure to address the noise issue with our team members.
