Oakwood Apartments Marina Del Rey
Reviewed June 5, 2012

We wanted to be near the beach but couldn't stand to spend $200 plus per night for a room and that was on the cheap side! We saw a special and stayed in a one bedroom suite. We arrived late at night and were met by a security guard. He was very helpful and informative in getting us to our room and the area. The lobby area is nice and so is the pool. We spent a whole evening out by the pool and everyone we encountered was friendly and nice. People were hanging out in pool other's were BBQ'ing which gave it a home feel if you were staying as a guest. The room itself could use some updating. There was a very strong smell in the room that took awhile to get used to. Perhaps some deap steam cleaning could help. The bathroom's are not the best as they are a little dated and seemed a little dirty. The location is great. Right by great restaurants and bars and close to Highways. It is worth it to upgrade to a one bedroom. We did this and had friends over one night and it was great having all the extra room for just $20 dollars more a night. They could be in the main area and not around our suitcases and personal items. Overall other than the smell, we enjoyed our stay and would probably stay at Oakwood apartments again in the future!

Room Tip: Ask for room near the pool.

My husband and I moved in Oct and are nothing but pleased with this building. The building is always kept clean, quite and friendly staff. If we have any issues with the apartment, it is fixed within 24 hours. We expected them to lack in some of these areas due to the amount of units, but we have never been let down. The location is great, 2 blocks from the beach, restaurants and bars. My only complaint is the 3 quest max at the huge hall they have, it would be nice if they allowed people to rent it for parties. Other than that, we would recommend this place to anyone.

Don't stay here. The service is disgusting. Though I paid for housekeeping, they didn't do it for 2 weeks unless I called them again to do it in a regular basis. The sewage in the kitchen got blocked. The sink got flooded with waters and they didn't even send somebody to clean it. The rooms are dated and it stinks.

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment for Thanksgiving week. We loved the tennis courts, gym and bike trails. The apartment also was comfortable. The people who helped me make my reservations, including Sophia and Mike, were great. They went out of their way to make sure we had a nice stay. Sophia particularly went over and above to make sure all went well for us.

Room Tip: If a quiet room is important, make sure to ask for inner courtyard away from pool and courts.

Good place to stay for a single guy - lots of young, beautiful girls in the summer that stay there, that eager to talk to you after you talk to them in hot tub.. Also Sunday BBQ cookouts by long time residents are great. Managenet allows you to drink by the pool and hot tub - which is great for entertaining girls.. Very close to the beach and bars- cant ask for more!

I spent 2 weeks in LA on business & stayed at this Oakwood. If you are in town for more than afew days it is well worth staying - very secure, great facilities, rooms are clean and spacious, car parking, clean laundries, business centre with free internet, etc. Plus I think they are reasonably priced. There are many very good restaurants within walking distance, and the beach is about 300 yards away. There is an Enterprise Rental Car area in the front lobby that is useful.

The Oakwood Apartment chain caters to people who need to stay more than a few nights, thus wanting a hotel, and those who must stay for considerable length of time, thus requiring an apartment. We have been at this Oakwood for three months and may be here for several months longer as my wife undergoes medical treatment. Oakwood has treated us well and, while there are clearly problems, it is good place to stay under such circumstances.

I would never considering staying at Oakwood for a week. Get a hotel room if that is what you want. Oakwood is much more like an apartment or condominium complex. There are 500 units in about a dozen buildings. There is a "clubhouse" with a small store, exercise room, and conference facilities. The pool is adequate on weekdays but over taxed on weekends as is the relatively nice jacuzzi.

Apartments come in studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom configurations and can be rented fully- partially- (everything but the pots, pans, and linens), or unfurnished. Parking is convenient and the grounds are well maintained. Each unit has a balcony that varies with the size of the unit. As with any apartment, your neighbors' behavior determines, in large measure, how much you enjoy your unit.

We pay rent on a month-to-month basis and thus are not subject to the hotel tax. Oakwood did not ask us to pay first-and-last months rent nor did they ask for a security deposit. They gave us a second parking place at no extra charge (unheard of in the beach area) and have been very responsive to maintenance requests. The complex is three blocks from the Venice Beach pier and provides easy access to the freeway, should you need it.

If you are willing to sign a lease, I would suggest an apartment elsewhere. If you only plan a short stay, get a hotel room. But for those of us in the middle, the Oakwood Apartments provide an excellent alternative.
