We stayed here for 3 night in February and had the best time! We had been to VB before so we were well prepared for the homeless, interesting characters you will find there. We had spent a few more dollars for a higher floor but not for the "ocean view" in the front. Our room was 408, in the back of the building and we still had an amazing ocean view. The room looks exactly like the pictures- sort of an Ikea showroom. There was plenty of room when our friends came by for a drink and enough wine glasses for the 6 of us. Of course we took our drinks up to the rooftop terrace to really enjoy the craziness from a lovely distance. The rooftop is not as it looks in the pictures. It is much smaller than I envisioned and now there are plexiglass panels all around the patio so you have to kneel or stand on the benches to have that true unobstructed view. Still wonderful but a little deceptive.
We found a great place called Candle Café up the boardwalk north a few blocks. They have 3 breakfast specials for $5.00 before 9:00. We had the huge breakfast burritos every day and the coffee was to die for! It was a great incentive to make it down there around 8. It was a great place to watch the "residents" start their day, setting up their stands or packing up their bags for the day. Pretty fascinating.
We also found a Groupon for bike rentals and rode all day. To Santa Monica and back and then to Marina del Rey for lunch.
After reading the reviews I had a very good idea what to expect and it all worked exactly as expected. Check in is weird but works fine. The parking garage is great, kind of tight so I would suggest a smaller car.
I will definitely go back!! ASAP.
