“Loved Venice....and Inn on the Beach was perfect”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

We were thrilled with our small suite in this lovely spot near the beach. The room is airy, bright and really comfortable. We loved the sitting area and although we did not cook the small kitchen was well appointed and we saw the potential for really settling in. The units was very clean. The staff were great with lots of friendly advice on restaurants and the local area. We walked across the street to the beach and could easily walk to the more trendy restauant area in Venice. We also manage to spend some time around the pool and it was very pleasant. Breakfast was included and very nicely done. Fairly standard continental breakfast but everything seemed better - fresher; better displayed etc than some other offerings. We would be more than happy to have the time to return sometime.

Great location, right across from beach. Comfy, clean rooms and cozy bedding. Looks like it has had a fairly recent refurb. Pastel colors, lots of light and privacy. I had a bench right outside my door- perfect for morning meditations and coffee. Pool and Jacuzzi crystal clear and heated. They had a folding beach chair for me to use and that really makes a difference at the beach instead of just taking a towel to lay on. I stayed for one night the first week of November. I was traveling solo but these are perfect accommodations for an anniversary style getaway. Lots of good restaurants in the area also. Friendly staff. My rate was very affordable given the proximity to the beach and time of year. No problems with anything and my internet was super fast. I download 'The Eastenders' 4 nights a week from the BBC so I should know.

Don't tell potential guests you have wireless Internet when it only works in some but not all rooms. That was a real bummer.

Third visit to this little inn. It is WONDERFUL! Rooms are always spotless! Continental breakfast with great pastries; then, water and snacks are available all day. Just across the street from the beach. Beautiful landscaping/courtyard area. Completely remodeled pool (completed in Sept 2011) and wonderful hot tub! Staff very friendly and helpful. This inn is also very accessible to the wonderful shopping and dining on Venice Avenue as well as just a short ride to Caspersen Beach if you are into serious searching for sharkteeth! We make repeat vacation visits to Venice as my husband is really into the search for sharkteeth and we would never even consider staying anywhere else! With all the great things about this place, it is also VERY affordable.

This hotel has an outstanding location, beautiful linens, and a great office staff that is friendly and offers free bottled water and snacks throughout the day, in addition to a free light breakfast. Our only complaint was that we clearly were given the worst room, even though the hotel was not full. It was small with a tiny bathroom and right next to the laundry room. However, we liked the location enough to stay another day if we could get a better room. The staff upgraded us to a room that was 2-3 times the size of the previous one, with its own private courtyard and a small kitchen for the same price. They were a bit embarrassed about the room we had been given and confided that we should never book online but rather call them directly. We appreciated the upgrade but in this online world the idea of providing the worst room just because it was booked via the internet seems antiquated. With that said, I would return. It is a step above most places.

Room Tip: Avoid room 125; it's next to the laundry room.

We came here by chance and were only going to stay 1 night but ended staying 4 nights as we enjoyed the hotel so much. The staff are extremely friendly and the inn is immaculate. The location is great with Venice beach on the footstep or the amazing caspersian beach down the road. Loads of sharks teeth to be found. I will come back
