“Great location and great decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

A great place to stay, close to all the action in Venice beach and a short bike ride or drive to Santa Monica. Great decor and beautiful rooms and courtyards. The breakfast was also great.

Don't recommend this place if you don't have a car, but then again I don't recommend anywhere in Los Angeles if you don't have a car.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

I stayed here with my husband and in-laws for 2 nights (Mon-Wed) and it was a decent place to stay. The rooms were clean and remodeled and breakfast was included (buffet style). It's walking distance to the canals, the marina and Venice beach and the neighborhood was decent, I felt comfortable walking to bars and restaurants in the evenings.
The one thing I will complain about is the car service the hotel offered, I asked multiple times if the car would cost more than a regular taxi and was assured that it wouldn't, the taxi back was over $20 cheaper so I would probably recommend just getting a taxi instead.

An interesting mix at this hotel. Good: clean rooms, recently renovated, complimentary Wi-Fi, proximity to Venice Beach, proximity to good, reasonably-priced eateries. Very good: courtesy and helpfulness of the staff (That includes all the staff: Manager, front desk, maintenance guy, cleaners, breakfast room servers.), the continental breakfast, the plushness of the towels, and the quality of the bathroom soaps and shampoos. Not-so-good: the size of the bathrooms and the water pressure of the showers. If you want to ride the Venice Beach bike path, there's a bicycle rental place next door for which the front desk will give you a discount coupon. All up, if you want a hotel within walking distance of the beach, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: You have a choice of a quiet room or one with a view (sort of). Ask at the front desk when you check...

This is a great little place to stay. The decor is super hip '60's right out of Mad Men. Our room was large, very clean, and had fun photographs on the walls. Breakfast was included and was perfect. The staff is very helpful. Location cannot be beat as it is a very short walk to the beach and you are surrounded by some very good restaurants. There is a bicycle rental shop in the ground level which is the best way to see the area. There is a great bike path on the beach and you can easily ride to the Santa Monica pier which makes for a fun, interesting and unique experience.

I stayed at the Inn at Venice Beach in September 2013. I found the room spacious and the décor was great. It was very close walk to the pier and restaurants. Although I didn't have any problems I found the staff very helpful and welcoming. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted a clean and centrally located place to stay.

The one-night stay was pleasant. Alfonso was a great host and he make sure that we were comfortable. He checked is in a little early since we were tired from our flight. He also took the initiative to book us a LA tour for the next morning.

If you get an inside room in the courtyard beware. It's worse than being in a jail. Imagine your terrace looks out to nothing but doors of other rooms. No light like a dead alley. The reception area desk is dirty. You can tell this is not run like a normal hotel. Its like a MOM and POP operation. Its actually not exactly Venice Beach since it is the last block of the so called border.The room decor is cheap..the place is clean..it can get noisy since you hear all the other guests going in and out of the other rooms all day and night.
You can do better in price and in comfort by searching the web. I cannot ope my curtain since anyone can look into the room. For $200 a night its not worth $50.00 to me. The other rooms face the noisy street below.

Room Tip: I dont think they have any good rooms.

Dear Valued Guest,

I’m so sorry to hear that we fell short of meeting your expectations. I am a bit surprised to know that you disliked our inner courtyard rooms. If you notice our guest feedback, these are the most requested rooms because they are the quietest and have a nice view into our cobblestone courtyard. I do appreciate you noting that our rooms are clean and thank you for taking the time to comment.

Sincerely,

Maggie Oliva
