First of all: In my opinion Venice Beach is one of the safest places in Los Angeles. We stayed five weeks and we never had any problems being outside when it was dark. The Venice Boardwalk has many streetlamps and so its nit a problem to walk around in the darkness.
We spent our holidays in July at the Venice Breeze Suites after reading all these good ratings here. And they were all right.
Mike and Cindy, the two managers of the Apartments, were such great people. If you had any kind of problem, they helped you out, no matter what time of the day it was. One night we forgot our keycards inside the room, we called their number and just a second later they opened the door for us. Five days before we left, our safe did not work anymore and it was not possible to open it. So Mike called the mechanic and he opened the safe for us with an angle grinder. So thanks for all kinds of these things.
Coming to the Suites: The rooms are pretty nice. The shower is – as mentioned – very big and really good. The size of the suites is for two people enough, but if you want to hang out with some friends, the rooms are way to small. But then you can go up to the roof or just anywhere on the boardwalk. The beds were really comfortable and all in all the rooms were very clean. We kind of missed a real cupboard to store our clothes, so we had to live out of our suitcases, but for five weeks it was ok. The windows were very thin, so if somebody is talking very loud outside the street, you can hear it. But although it was summer, that didnt happen a lot.
Only one thing was really bad. At first we had a studio apartment on the first floor. It was right next to the backdoor, so it was very loud when somebody got in. But the really annoying point was that the big ash barrel of the breeze suites was below the windows of the apartment so the whole room had these stinky smell of trash. That was disgusting, but unfortunally it was no problem for Mike and Cindy to change us to a One-Bedroom-Apartment in the second floor.
In the end i have to say that the roof-terrace was pretty much the best thing of the whole suites. It was possible to hang out every day up there and it was so beautiful. We had like one or two bbqs every week, because it was that nice. On the 4th of July Mike and Cindy had a bbq and fireworks with their friends and invited us to celebrate with them. Once again: Thanks for all.
We didnt use the car garage so i cant say anything about that. But the next Bus Station is just two streets away from the Suites and so your pretty fast in Santa Monica or anywhere else in LA. Five weeks without a car in Los Angeles worked this way pretty good.
So all in all i can recommend this accommodation, you will love your stay right in the sands of the Venice Beach.
