Top location, historic hotel

Posted 25-May-2015
Pros: location, kitchen, wardrobe size
Cons: bathroom
Location: Set aside time to walk through more than just Venice beach - check out the Canal Walks, Abbott Kinney Blvd and the Main Street nearer Santa Monica
Upgrade works during the visit so not exactly pristine condition (but not a pain either). Really good point for us was the kitchenette - very useful. Really big wardrobe! - very rare and helpful. Tiny bathroom, small shower cubicle - a downside (this could be fixed by merging with kitchen but then you'd loose the kitchen).

great staff but lacks on comfort

Posted 1-May-2015
Location is fantastic. Staff was very good but rooms are dated and comfort was not very good.

Great location!

Posted 1-Apr-2015
Great location, but room was definitely not worth $220/night.

Sorry that you felt the value wasn't there, our prices do bump a bit on weekends, especially during spring break and summer holidays.

Great place to stay on the beach

Posted 29-Mar-2015
Perfect little place to stay on the beach. You walk right out of the hotel to the boardwalk and beach. The elevator is old school, It has such a rustic, beach vibe. Great staff! Great place to stay!

Fully under construction

Posted 21-Feb-2015 on Hotels.com
It would have been nice to know that this hotel is under construction.

We're sorry if your stay was impacted by our exterior renovation project, which has been ongoing since last August and is in its finishing stages; we've had hundreds of happy guests stay during that time, who are looking forward to coming back to witness the improvements first hand!

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

Posted 19-Feb-2015
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!

Mittelmässiges Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

Posted 12-Feb-2015 on Hotels.com
Neue Bettüberwürfe und neue Tischlampen würden dem Zimmer gar nicht Schaden. Da die Fassade gerade Sarniert wurde war halt Staub und Lärm nicht ganz unmöglich. Die Umgebung ist Abends nicht sehr geheuer. Preis Leistung stimmt hier für mich nicht. In einem Motel bekomme ich für weniger fast das Selbe über(Unterschied: im Motel hatte es keine Kochplatte). WiFi sehr stabil und völlig ausreichend für Ferien. ;) Wenn der Preis besser würde, würde ich vermutlich wieder einmal vorbei gehen. Personal sehr hilfsbereit.

Amazing experience

Posted 9-Feb-2015 on Hotels.com
I would go back again and again if I could! If anything, it was because of the incredible service. The staff is unbelievably kind and personable! I've already told all my friends about it.
