we (2 adults and our 15yr old daughter) stayed for three nights in a one bed suite. It was better than we expected we were in room 320 it was very peaceful and there was a nice breeze we had the windows open in the day it was lovely. The first thing we noticed was how immaculate the hotel was everywhere was spotless. We used the two computers and there was no charge for using the printers which we did for coupons for restaurants. My daughter slept on the sofa which she said was comfortable not sure for 2 adults. The bathroom was small but that didn't bother us the water was always hot and the sink was outside the room which is where us girls spend longer!
The coffee/tea maker, fridge and microwave all came in handy and you could have local restaurants to deliver to the hotel.

It is about a 15min walk to the beach which for anyone from England no distance and there were bars/cafes and restaurants there. Many little restaurants near the hotel.

Francisco and Jason (hope names are right or nearly) were on reception and they were brilliant every time we passed them they asked if we had any questions or advice needed they were great. My daughter was ill the last night and they gave us a late check out and showed concern this was much appreciated and needed thank you guys.

The breakfast room was small but breakfast was good lovely waffle maker, bagels cereals, yoghurts every thing you needed and we like taking it back up to our room or outside on to the patio to eat but we found the tables cleared quickly they have done the best with what they have.

The pool was small but most people went to the beach a nice little Jacuzzi too and patio chairs to sit on was nice.

It was very convenient to get to the beaches venice, santa monica we had no problems parking at these beaches. It was very windy though and the water was cold this was not Florida that's for sure.

It was not hard to get to Hollywood (we hated it). we would definitely stay here again if we come this way first class hotel chilled out by the beach must finally say all the staff were friendly and courteous well managed hotel.

The rooms are comfortable and clean. Service is great. Note that the hotel is a bit (half a mile more or less) off the Marina del Rey itself. The hotel is quite close to Venice Beach. We stayed there for 4 nights.

Couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at the hotel. Spent 4 nights and had absolutely no problems or complaints. The hotel was spotless, the staff courteous and helpful, the experience makes me wish I was still there. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Pool was small but adequate. Nice outdoor commons area to enjoy coffee in morning or relax at night. Easy walk to beach. Bikes to rent if you so desire. Breakfast included eggs, sausage or bacon, lots of pastries, cereal and juices included in your room cost. Plus parking was easy and included. Will definitely stay here on my next visit. For what this hotel offers, price was a bargain.

Room Tip: We were on the side opposite the main road and never heard anything. I don't know if rooms on m...

We stayed at the Inn at Marina del Rey for one night. I had originally tried to find a place closer to Venice Beach, but am very glad we ended up here. The hotel is about a mile from the beach/boardwalk so it is close for spending the day at the beach, but far enough from a lot of the noise and craziness of Venice Beach at night. Although the exterior is not especially exciting, the room was very clean and the hotel offered amenities such as hot and cold breakfast, a pool and jacuzzi, a fire pit with plenty of comfortable seating, laundry facilities, bicycles, and parking. The only downsides were that the towels were on the thin side, there wasn't quite enough seating in the breakfast area, and the immediate neighborhood is a bit run down.

The hotel is quite simple but has a good standard and nice and clean rooms. It is about 1,5 miles to Venice beach pier so it is easy to walk or rent a bike at the hotel to get there. It is also nice to have a bike ride from Venice beach pier to Santa Monica Beach pier. It is about 30 min ride in each direction. You are also close to Abbot Kinney Boulevard which is a nice street with shops and restaurants. The hotel lies next to a quite big street. It was not very disturbing but you should not expect any nice views from the hotel. The price was quite good for a hotel in this area compared to its standard.

It was a pleasure visiting recently during our California vacation. From checkin until checkout with Francisco, every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful. Everyone seemed extremely committed to our having a pleasant stay. Thank you. The breakfast was excellent and included hot and cold offerings and the myriad of services were appreciated, including a laundry room, pool and spa, and comfortable outdoor seating with a fire table.
