Great for beach and airport stopover

Posted 3-Feb-2017
Good hotel with good amenities. Older hotel with small bathroom and inconvenient unload and parking, but has large oceanfront room for a reasonable price. Great rooftop deck. You have to be OK with Venice Beach, which has an eclectic mix of folk, but if you are, then this place works very well. We're staying there again, on another airport stopover. Very happy to do that.

This is really good feedback and paints an accurate portrait of what staying here is like. Great points about the different types of people in our neighborhood and our proximity to LAX.

Lots of character. Clean and comfortable.

Great property! Loved the service at check-in. The hotel has so much character, including Betsy, the 104 year old elevator! Room was comfortable and clean. Shower was fantastic. Neighborhood wasn't as lively as we had hoped, and shut down fairly early. Great access to beach. Will definitely stay again!

Amazing location, the facility is old but good.

Posted 12-Nov-2016
The location cannot be any better - it's right on the beach an in the center of Venice highlights! The hotel itself is quite old, and could use a fresh coat of paint (in particular, for the bathroom), but it is well maintained, so no problems here. I wish the place had its own parking, but there is a public parking in a close proximity, and it's fairly inexpensive.

What a nice staff! Beautiful renovated room!

Posted 12-Oct-2016
Pros: Location, view, staff
Cons: The complimentary bottle of water could be given for every night booked there, not only the first day.
I was very happy staying here. The management is super flexible, and if the room is not booked for the next day, they will give you a late check-out with no extra charge. They helped us with everything we asked for. They have all the stuff you need to go to the beach (chairs, umbrellas, balls, toys), so, don't worry. The room is beautiful and comfortable, although the restroom is a little bit small.

好立地で高いコスパ

Posted 28-Sep-2016 on Hotels
目の前がベニスビーチという好立地にも関わらず、コストパフォーマンスがよく大変よかったです!フロントオフィスのスタッフの方も皆さんとても親切で、困ったこと、質問にも丁寧に調べて教えてくれました。ビーチが目の前にある為、無料貸出のタオルやビーチチェアがあったのはとても有難かったです。共用コインランドリーもあり、洗濯もできたことはポイント高いです。ルーフトップもあり、美しい夜景も素敵でした。手動エレベーターは初体験しましたが、レトロで中々経験できないので楽しかったです。有名なベニスサインへも徒歩5分ほど、アボットキニーへも徒歩15分ほどで行けます。

På stranden och väldigt trevlig personal.

Venice beach är ett lite bohemiskt område men låt dig inte avskräckas! Ca 30 minuter bort till fots ligger Santa Monica med riktigt bra shopping på 3rd Street.

Great Location & Great Staff but be thin

Posted 14-Sep-2016 on Wotif
Pros: Location & staff.
Cons: Old hotel. Not much that can be done. Nice to get the door lock fixed to make it easier to open the door.
Location: Venice Beach is great for walking up / down & observing the activities going on. Short walk to Santa Monica (20 minutes) which is good place to shop.
Couldn't get a better location ; right on Venice Beach (little bit expensive as a result). Staff were very helpful ; we arrived at the hotel at 08:00 after a long flight & although check in was not until 15:00, they went out of their way to have a room ready by 12:00. Rooms were a bit small including bathroom & opening the room door with the key was always a bit challenging. Rooftop view was tremendous especially at sunset.
