Loved the access to the beach.

Posted 20-Feb-2015
Pros: Access to the beach.
Cons: Can't wait to see the renovations that were undergoing! The rooftop patio will be spectacular.
Location: The beach - rent some bikes from Jay's Rentals a few blocks down and ride all the way to Malibu! Rent a surf board from Jay's and surf all day!
The hotel was undergoing some construction but was still comfortable and clean. The parking was not the greatest but nothing too bad.

Thanks for bearing with us during our exciting upgrades; the roof-top deck will be remarkable and our front balconies will be opening at the end of February. Great point about parking; it can be a challenge in Venice, especially when staying at the historic properties like ours that weren't built with on-site parking in mind. Hope to see you again!

Very nice right on the beach

Venice is beautiful by day. Not so much at night. Take that into consideration.

Very good point, Alberto. The beach and Boardwalk virtually empty out after sunset which can make for a stark contrast in experiences between day and night. The good part about that is the area is often quite quiet at night which can help where getting some rest is concerned. Thanks for staying with us!

We're glad you enjoyed your Venice Beach experience and we appreciate that you mentioned parking, which can be difficult in our busy beach-town... There is free street parking available in our neighborhood and paid parking lots a few blocks from our hotel.

Exactly what we were looking for.

Posted 3-Jan-2015
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was charming and clean. It's located right in the middle of the beach action. Parking is available nearby. We really enjoyed our stay. Can't wait to see how the facade restoration turns out!

Thank you for your kind words, Jesse! Hope to see you again (...once the new common-area balconies and roof-deck are done!)

New year get away with kids and service dogs.

Posted 2-Jan-2015
We had a lovely experience, the hotel is exactly as described. We love old architecture and we love history, so this place was perfect for us. The staff at this hotel were helpful and kind. We arrived with two PTSD service dogs and we were facilitated with no problems. My husband and I are both Combat Veterans with various types of handicaps, we were treated very well and had no problem while we were there. We loved spending time walking on the beach and walking on the board walk. We were happy to find a lot of vegetarian food options from various restaurants near by. We loved it so much there we intend to go back some day soon.

Very friendly and helpful staff. We were delayed and stuck in Chicago they call me on the cellphone to make sure that we get in as we arived late. The location is perfect and my 11 year old daughter liked it for that but not so much for the akomodation. I new what to expect and that Wat we got.

Consistently great for solo getaway adventure

Posted 20-Dec-2014 on Hotels.com
I couldn't ask for better service from the entire staff. Always gracious accommodating. I love coming to venice beach as a solo getaway to clear my head, get out of arizona heat or just relax. Walking out the front door directly onto the boardwalk is priceless to me. The energy and vibe are undeniably unique and always an adventure. The ideal weather, a few really good reataurants, integrating services and shops all just a few steps from My room. Yes, there are some homeless around, but I've never felt threatened. Police are present and patrol often. They are very nice and keep a sense of peace and calm ( not militant at all).The rooms have exposed brick walls and kitchenette. Comfortable. There are upgrades being made to add balconies which is nice. It's a nice little adventure getaway I fly over from AZ frequently to enjoy. Thanks Matt and the gang for your genuinely exceptional service skills and consistency

Amazing place

Posted 18-Dec-2014 on Hotels.com
Only 1 night but what a hotel, amazing location literally being on the broadwalk! The hotel was cute and the loveliest owners! The room was so sweet and cosy and very clean! Really recommend this place even though they had builders in fixing the roof I still couldn't fault it I loved it!

Good location, poor neighborhood.

Posted 16-Dec-2014 on Hotels.com
Just wanted to a good location, which was the case, but the neighborhood and the hotel condition were very rough.

I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed by your experience visiting Venice Beach. I wonder what it was that you were expecting... Nonetheless, just remember that a little research goes a long way when you're traveling to an unfamiliar destination.
