“Lovely stay, right on the beach!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights during our holiday to LA.
Really cannot fault the location, right on Venice Beach, across the sea...great views.
The apartment itself was very cosy, and immaculately clean. There is also free parking a couple of blocks away, which in this area, is a real bonus.
The apartment manager is on site, and really helpful.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

My daughter and I stayed here for a night after being in Orange County for four days. Our taxi driver said as he dropped us off, be careful! Any place in the world I believe you need to be careful perhaps some more than others. However Venice Beach is an experience that is well worth it. Turn right out of the hotel and you walk to Santa Monica along the board walk, turn left out of the hotel and you end up at the Venice Canals, great food shops and houses to look at. Two blocks behind Venice beach is gorgeous shopping very arty and urban with great food places, clothing etc..I loved it. Venice is full of life, different people, arts, skateboarders, runners, surfers. Its a real mixture of life. Matt and his staff were more than helpful, the rooms although old are very clean. But remember this is a 100 year old building. Venice Beach is cheaper than Santa Monica but only a 5 min taxi ride away, so you can enjoy the best of both. I would definitely come back here for a week next time and really soak up the environment. Thanks Matt!

And thank you, my dear! I say to folks on the phone that Santa Monica is the prep-school student and Venice is the art-school drop-out; both share the same beach but they are distinctly different in flavor. I'm glad you stayed with us and yet sampled both!

My boyfriend and I loved this hotel! As soon as we walked into our room we were like "can we just live here?" If you want to really experience Venice Beach this is the hotel for you! The room was cozy, clean and perfect for the two of us. Arriving at this hotel we regretted staying the first night of our trip in LA as this hotel was so much better. I can't wait for the day we get to go back to Venice and stay in this great charm of a building.

Room Tip: Ocean view would be the best room! However we were on the top floor in the far left corner. We could...

We stayed 5 nights here and loved it!
The location is fantastic, literally right on Venice Beach, close to everything.
It was good value compared to a lot of other hotels in the area and had a small kitchenette which meant that would could go to the local farmers markets and self cater, this allowed us to kept costs to a minimum and meant we could sample the local produce.
Only negatives were that one night we ran out of hot water and courtesy of the local "doctors" selling medicinal marijuana sometimes the entire area had the distinctive scent - but hey it's part of the local atmosphere, if you are after a posh boutique feel then Venice probably isn't for you, stay in Santa Monica instead.
The staff were really friendly and very helpful, if we were to go back we would definitely stay there again.

Well said, friend from New Zealand! Thanks for staying with us!

And I particular appreciate your mention of our en-suite mini-kitchens and plethora of local farmer's markets; a great way to save $ while you're on holiday AND sample the wonderful produce grown throughout our Golden State!

Cheers!

I have to admit I was in two minds about this place before we arrived. My husband wanted to stay somewhere on Venice beach but I was a bit unsure - how wrong was I!!!!!
Firstly the staff just great, Matt (manager) was so helpful right from helping us get our bags out of the car to where to go, what to see.Thanks Matt we really enjoyed talking to you.
Secondly the room was fab, great size, everything there you need to be self sufficient and spotlessly clean.
Thirdly the view, we had a large window which looked straight out onto the beach. It was just brilliant looking out and watching life go on out there.
And finally location, what can I say, it was all happening literally on your doorstep.
Some very good eating places, all sorts of shops, people selling all sorts of things on the prom,music left, right and centre and some very odd behaviour at times (not threatening).
Depends what you're after I suppose, yes there are quite a lot of homeless people sleeping on the beach at night but that's just the way it is and if you don't bother them they don't bother you.

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the romm.

A review like this is one of (the many) reasons why I love my job!

Managing a hotel in Venice Beach can be tricky... this neighborhood is not for the faint of heart and some visitors are skeptical. However, our staff takes great pride in helping guests - many from international destinations like my dear Olive from Gloucester - acclimate to and hopefully grow to appreciate our little slice of where the city meets the sea.

I very much enjoyed talking with you, too!

My best friend and I take random trips just to get away from the crazy jobs that we both have. We do not need 4 stars to makes us happy this little gem was great! Right on the boardwalk close to tons of great restauraunts (if you wanted the REALLY good ones you just walked a little further) there was tons of people watching. The rooms were clean not to mention the view of the ocean we had!! We just loved it here. Oh and the staff forget about it they were super duper nice. I will for sure go back and stay here again!!!

Room Tip: ask for ocean view, or partial view you will LOBE the breeze that the California air always gives yo...

I'm glad this boutique hotel could be a part of your much-needed vacation break, Ihanet! We strive to provide a two-star lodging experience - offering a clean & comfortable place to shower & sleep - from which you can sally forth and explore this piece of urban beach-frontage.

Hope to see you again!
