I have to admit, when we drove up to the Inn At Venice Beach, I wasn't sure what to expect. The blue and yellow stucco exterior didn't really give any clues. But, as they say, appearances can be deceiving.
The lobby was just a sample of things to come. It was modern and sleek, white and wood. A painting hung that said "It's not polite to stare" which I found amusing. Alfonso, the desk clerk, was extremely friendly and helpful. He helped us book a tour with Amazing LA Tours (see my review elsewhere) and suggested restaurants to eat at and things to do. I really enjoyed chatting with him. He mentioned that the hotel owner liked to renovate every 4-5 years and there were indeed some renovations and repainting going on, but this did not detract from our pleasant stay there.
There is a computer in the lobby for guests to use and free wi-fi. I found the wi-fi to be a little spotty and weak on our first floor room, but otherwise it was OK.
Our room was just the right size and featured a large flat screen TV, a cute little sitting area with two orange chairs, local photography for decor and a nice firm bed. The hotel was very quiet.
The Inn serves a continental breakfast with coffee, tea, cereal, pastries, toast, bagels, hard boiled eggs and yogurt in a pleasant breakfast room. There is also an inner courtyard with tables and chairs and a water fountain.
While not quite on the beach, it's just a two block walk from the beach. A surf shop, several restaurants, a Starbucks and a Coldstone Creamery are all within walking distance as well.
