“Nice room scary neighborhood at night”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

I was going for a yoga training for a week and couldn't get a room at Venice Admiral Suites which is just one block from Exhale Spa where I was going...so, I called Venice Breeze and they told me I was just 10 minutes walk away and right by the beach. True. But they should have mentionned about the neighborhood... Rooms are much nicer than the Admiral BUT for a young woman, walking along either the beach or on the street to get to my appartment after 6:30 pm was scary. One day at around 5:30pm, two blocks from the Breeze, walking to get to my appartment, a car slowed down and a man asked me if I wanted to ''get a ride''... then it was very loud on the Friday night, all night, couldn't sleep... Saturday night, thank god, police stayed beside the building all night and it felt safer; getting up early walking by the beach to see homeless people sleeping beside the building and along the beach was quite an experience! Location is great during the day as it is right on the beach.
I am going back in March and too bad I will not book at the Breeze because the rooms are truly much nicer than at the Admiral...

Thank you for staying with us and we understand Venice is not for everyone. We have passed a new law the prohibits camping on the boardwalk and beach and we along with other local businesses will keep working with our local police and politicians to make Venice a safer and more enjoyable place to visit.

it's a fun place to stay. Oddly, for LA, you really can do most things without a car and you can rent bikes. Easy commute from LAX with taxi or even bus. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance, including good breakfast places.

Luckily, there is a new ordinance as of January 2012 where the boardwalk is closed down from midnight - 5 am so it is definitely more quiet now. We have single women stay here often and have never had any problems. It can seem to be scary but the police patrol the boardwalk and we have their cameras on our building for a more secure environment for our guest. We hope you will come back to see the improvement on the Venice Boardwalk.

We loved, loved, LOVED staying here! The views were amazing, and the special added touches like fresh fruit was pleasant. Michael (Mike) was awesome! I hurt myself cooking and he rushed (even though the front desk was closed) to make sure I had all first aid I needed. The roof top is amazing! Great views and a beautiful dining and grilling area. Everything in the room was new and contemporary. I would definitely come again.

Room Tip: Room 202 was right next the the fire escape, in which you can see the entire boardwalk

We had a great one month stay in Venice Breeze Suites. The location is perfect, just on the beach and the boardwalk. The studio apartment was small but nice and the interior was modern and functional. The staff was friendly and helpful. Once a week the sheets and towels were changed and the room was cleaned. Downstairs there's washing machines and tumble driers, which made everything very pleasant - didn't have to go outside to get the laundry done. Wifi worked all right. The kitchenette's a bit small to make proper meals, but for breakfast it was perfect, and nearby there're so many good take-out places and nearby on Abbot Kinney Blvd excellent restaurants.
During the day time Venice Beach is full of action and people, including kush doctors and homeless, but at night it was very quiet and peaceful. At least there was no noise to the 4th floor, slept well every night.

Room Tip: Ocean view if possible! Partly ocean view doesn't really mean that...

Hello Shoptravelfood,

Thank you for the great review and we are glad you liked our suites and Venice Beach. Hopefully you took advantage of the roof top deck and BBQ, it helps with those bigger meals. So you were the ones making the hallways smell like bacon! Yummmmm! Hope to see you again soon.

Warmest Wishes over this Holiday Season,

Michael & Cindy

It's in a really good place, with good view of the ocean and of the walk. not too expensive, rooms are clean and spacious. staff is polite and helpful. the only fault is that the place is not so quite, expecially in the night, anyway it's not a fault of the hotel but of the entire Venice! Definally i suggest this place. Andrea from Italy

We weren't overly excited to see Los Angeles which is why we chose to base ourselves near the beaches. So glad we did! Didn't like LA but loved Venice Beach and Santa Monica. Venice Beach is not for everyone - it has alot of characters!! And can seem a little unsafe ar night when it becomes hundreds of homeless peoples home.

But these apartments are perfect! Right on the main strip, you can't get anycloser to the beach. It has beautiful views and the rooms are modern, very clean and just what you need. The hotel has a gorgeous rooftop terrace that is the perfect spot after a long day of sightseeing. You can sit back and watch the craziness unfold below.

Walking distance to plenty of great restaurants and beautiful Santa Monics too.

In July my family and I enjoyed a weeklong stay at Venice Breeze Suites. Our Suite was very accomodating from the flat screen televisions to the fully functional kitchen and dinning area. I was very satisfied with cleanliness and spaciousness of our suite. If your looking for a breathtaking view their roof top terrace was amazing for watching the sun go down. What really made our retreat so fantastic was the helpfullness of the staff. The manager Terry went above and beyond to make sure my family 's experience was one we would remember. You don't often meet people in this industry that care so much about the customer. I can not say enough about Terry's hospitality and making my family feel that Venice Breeze Suites is our home away from home. Its customer service like this that makes you come back again and again!!! My family has already been asking when we can go back. Cant wait to go back

Hello George,
Thank you for writing such a great review and we are very pleased you enjoyed our property and staff. July is a busy time here on the beach in Southern California and I hope you and your family took some great memories back home. We strive to make the Breeze unique and homey and not your typical hotel so it's great to hear you choose us as your second home!

Hope you have a great holiday season and we look forward to your return,
