Thank you Ethan for all your help. It was a trip we cant stop talking about. We read all the reviews before we booked which helped a lot. We brought ear plugs but didn't need them. The rooms are nice and the bed was so comfy.

Fun adventure staying on the boardwalk in Venice. Lots of interesting things to see within walking distance. Beautiful ocean view and lovely ocean breeze. Two fans were perfect Parking an unpleasant distance from hotel. Fold out bed very uncomfortable. Wooden slats under master futon not properly spaced so my husband slept in a sinkhole for two nights and ended up with the worst back pain he's had in a long time. Not used to no coffee or tea in room. Odd to have see through glass doors on bedroom and bathroom so privacy limited. Also, odd that kids had to walk through master to use restroom.

Overall, you couldn't ask for a better location. Steps away from the beach, restaurants, shopping and a few blocks away from Main Street. The property was clean and rooms were a good size. The only downside, which might be enough for me to think twice before staying here again, was the street noise that you could hear at all hours of the night. Our room faced a back ally and each of the four nights that we were there we were woken up by yelling, crying, dumpsters opening and closing etc. The rooms did not have air conditioning so we would have liked to leave the windows open but that was not an option unless we wanted to get woken up several times throughout the night.

Room Tip: If possible, choose a room that does not face the back alley!

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Venice Suites. Our objective is to provide accommodations that make the guest feel at home on the beach. The Venice Boardwalk is a major Los Angeles attraction that is very busy during the summer with hundreds of thousands of visitors on the boardwalk everyday. Some may find it to be to overwhelming and load. However, that is what most tourists come to the Venice Boardwalk to see. In our amenities section it is listed that we don’t have air conditioning. Our hotel is a historic building and it is cost prohibitive to retrofit the building for central air especially when we are a beachfront property that only experiences a hot day a couple times during the entire summer.

If you want to be on the beach, at the ocean....this is the place. It is on the Venice Boardwalk, amidst several nice restaurants and shops. The hotel is clean and the rooms are spacious. It is not handicapped accessible and does not have a business center. But, for restful vacations, that's not that big a deal. The available parking is a short walk away. There is a Whole Foods and other supermakrets nearby to purchase groceries so you can eat some meals in the room, and there is a nice kitchenette to prepare meals, along with pots, pans and plates and utensils.

It's a genuinely nice place to stay, and the sound of the ocean surf at night makes for very restful sleep.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have better views and are quieter.

We are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us in beautiful Venice Beach. We are currently working on making our sister property Venice Breeze Suites handicap accessible. We hope to begin work on making our property handicap accessible in December pending construction permit approvals. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future.

The Venice Suites was a great delight for us. The rooms are large, the bed is comfortable, the kitchen is great and fully stocked with pots and pans--and equally important since this place is within a block of Venice Beach, it is very quiet. We had a great stay in fantastic location. The rooms are more like condos and are very pleasant. You have to get your room key through a lock box, which is a bit hard to open, but the instructions they send are very clear.

If you are traveling to Venice, Marina Del Rey or Santa Monica, this is a fantastic option. Staff was super friendly over the phone…parking was about two blocks from our building, but very convenient.

Room Tip: Take your instructions with you and be patient in opening lock box.

Venice is just the right place to hang out in LA, the apartment is beautiful and well situated, a short walk to Main street restaurants, an even shorter walk to the beach. Self catered makes a longer than one night stay seem so much more comfortable, with all your home conveniences.

Room Tip: I liked the Venice Suits on Paloma, no ocean view, but incredibly quiet and comfy while being close...

I was looking for a place on the beach in California to spend a month. For some reason I was drawn to Venice and , via research , I followed my instincts and went with Venice Suites , securing a beach view apartment. One of the best decisions I have made in a long time.

Firstly , the location : absolutely perfectly placed right on the Santa Monica and Venice borders. You step out onto the boardwalk and turn right to the sophistication and classiness of SM. Or you turn left and enter the edgy, yet endearing world of Venice, with its array of eclectic weird sights. Either way, the location of Venice suites is perfect as you get options. And Main Street is nearby with its many bars and restaurants.

Then, the apartments: they are ideal. All mod cons inside. Even the tv has full cable and I could get live English premiership football, Champions League and World Cup qualifiers. No detail was left unattended. I had two friends come stay for a few nights and the staff gave me extra pullout beds and a car park space and so on and so forth. I had all I needed. As I say , I stayed a month and I was never wanting for any home gadgets or appliances.

There is also a magnificent roof terrace with superb views across the whole area and excellent for capturing the beautiful West Coast sunset or lazing in the sun away from the crowds.

Then the staff. I dealt mainly with Robert. He is a class act. Helpful to the maximum and is very attentive to whatever is needed to make sure everything goes smoothly. He also has a very dry sense of humour and is a great font of knowledge on everything that goes on in the area. A top man, who runs a top place.

I cannot recommend this place enough. It served all my purposes and exceeded all my expectations. If I return , I will head straight there again. YRD (UK visitor)

(As an aside, one big warning: if you are staying a while , brace yourself for the chap who sings the exact same 90 minute set of songs repeatedly everyday from 9 am on the boardwalk....psychologically damaging!!!)

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. We are so happy that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay here at the Venice Suites! We work very hard to ensure that our guests are well taken care of and feel that they are at their "home away from home". I'm glad that you were able to experience all that the area has to offer between the grit and weirdness of Venice to the classy lifestyle in Santa Monica!

Also, thank you very much for the compliment to the management...it certainly does not fall on deaf ears!

Thank you again for staying with us, and I will sincerely look forward to your next month in Venice!

Thank You,

Robert
General Manager

P.S. The guy who plays the guitar every morning outside the cafe next door has decided to start vending things on the boardwalk during the weekend...so we only get him during the week! No more "Sunny Side of the Street" (his first song everyday) to wake you up on the weekends!

Cheers!
