I have stayed there twice, and my brother stayed there once. I thought it was a fun place to stay for 20 somethings. I liked the room, and I loved being next to the beach. It was a short, but dangerous walk to many restaurants and cafes in Santa Monica. If you love the raw, bohemian atmosphere of Venice beach, it can be a nice experience.
The room was simplistic and functional. In the bathroom, there was a sign in ten languages, "please jiggle the handle if the toilet continues to fill". (Why not just fix the toilet???)
I found the hotel quaint and nostalgic. Others found it loud and run-down. They are renovating, so it will be much nicer soon. Venice beach will always be loud and dirty, that cannot be fixed. If you're a hippie, stay here. You will love it. If you want a five star experience, run like hell from this place.
