Funky Hotel on the Boardwalk

Posted 4-Dec-2015
Great location with a cool vibe and great staff! The roof top lounge is a must hangout. The 103 year elevator even has a name and she works! Love the history and the area.

Venice Beach "All In"

Posted 7-Nov-2015 on Hotels
I love Venice and this wonderful hotel gives you the opportunity to go all in! Fantastic staff, Close to the beach, skate park and I have to mention the Food Court next door - best food of the front walk!

No parking hotel

Posted 4-Nov-2015 on Hotels
I GOT THIS HOTEL FOR MY PARENTS 50TH ANNIVERSARY. CHECK-IN IS REALLY AT 3 PM. NO EARLIER NO EXCEPTIONS. There is no parking at this hotel!! You are on your own and the overnight parking is worthless around the area. After a nice day my parents came to find their cars back window and whole back end of car crashed in!!!!!

I was very sorry to see what happened to your parents' car. I advised them to go along with what the local police suggested, which was to contact their auto insurance company and have them pursue the parking lot and review the security camera footage of that evening. I hope they have done so and that this has been resolved.

Amazing Hotel

Posted 1-Nov-2015
The view from the Hotel was awesome. The staff made us feel right at home and helped us find our way around the city, so that we could enjoy our trip that much more.

Location is everything!

Posted 29-Oct-2015
The good: location right on the beachbeach, beautiful shared balconies on the third and fourth floors, great rooftop deck, friendly staff, historic building with original elevator (103 years old!) and claw foot tubs The bad: Rooms are quite cramped, bathrooms even more so, hotel staff is nice but doesn't always provide the most reliable info or prompt maintenance. We asked for a lamp on the first day (of a two night stay) because our ceiling light was broken. They told us repeatedly that they would deliver one to our room and never followed through.

Thank you for sharing your experience, Robert. I humbly apologize for not following through on delivering the lamp for your room. It completely slipped by mind until first thing in the morning the day of your departure. I am sorry.

Un studio sur la plage de Venice

Posted 29-Oct-2015 on Hotels
Hotel vieux mais rénové, face à la mer dans un environnement touristique le jour, plus discutable la nuit mais sans rèelle crainte. Personnel absolument charmant et à l'écoute des clients

Fun and different

Posted 24-Oct-2015 on Hotels
A different and delightful type of hotel. The creeky old elevator was my favorite. Windows to leave open all night so one can hear the surf and enjoy a sea breeze. Perhaps not for everyone but we are in our 70s and loved it! Friendly and helpful staff.

Venice Beach!

Posted 14-Oct-2015
Hotek is centrally located on Venice Beach! No air conditioning made it very uncomfortable especially in this California heat. No daily cleaning of room which kinda was upsetting cause it's nice to come back to a freshly made bed when you are out all day doing the tourist thing! Venice Beach was very run down, not recommended for family vacation way too many transients and drugs. No police presence felt very unsafe.

I wish your visit could've been better! The CA heat you experienced was unusual; a heat wave related to a tropical storm. We rarely break into the 80's and thus, don't typically need A/C. As for your room cleaning, we should have explained our process to you at check-in. If we didn't, I apologize.
