“Great staff, great location”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

When I entered my room I became worried about two things; no air condition, and noise from the street. The breeze from the sea mitigated the heat (third floor side of building), and the street performers and crowds weren’t very noisy, and stoppd fairly early in the evening. There were however a lot of helicopters around. Don’t know why. I really liked the wooden floors and the decent sized fridge. There are some pots and pans and cutlery, but no knives, ladels or other stuff to prepare food with. In the side stret there’s a decent coffee shop for breakfast, and several hole-in-the-wall kitchens for lunch and dinner takeaway if needed. I found the Indian food excellent.
Staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. If I ever go back to Venice Beach, I’d definetly book this place again.

Room Tip: Third floor had good views and seabreeze

I'm so glad you stayed with us and took the time to make these excellent points about the feel of our rooms and the vibe of Venice.

As for the helicopters that fly over the beach and Boardwalk (which is common question from guests)... the LAPD has an Air Support Division that helps in keeping the residents of and the visitors to Los Angeles safe!

This is an awesome spot right on the Venice Boardwalk! You will get a great feel of Venice and get a true experience of the area. The rooms are great and my girlfriend and I enjoyed them much better than a standard hotel room as they have a great little home-y feel to them. The place itself has its own great personality and is definitely worth experiencing. Matt at the front desk was extremely nice and helpful (always asking whats up for the day and offering some local insight) and the staff makes you feel welcome. Do yourself a favor and grab and open date as we can't wait to return!

There's nothing more satisfying for me as a transplant to SoCal than welcoming fellow Pennsylvanians to this hotel and sharing in their experiences. Venice Beach has a way of calling people to come to see what this place is all about; via movies, TV, the web or good old fashioned word-of-mouth. For me, it was the music of Jane's Addiction and the Red Hot Chili Peppers that made me leave the woods behind for the California coast almost 15 years ago now. For you, I can only hope that once you do heed the call, you make the leap and stay with us and then do like Nick will do and plan a trip back as a repeat guest! (And get your 10% repeat guest discount!)

Very happy with this sweet little hotel on the beach. If you're staying in Venice would definitely recommend this place. Building is quite old obviously but the room had been recently renovated and was very nice. Pretty spacious with everything you need right on the beach. Service was 10/10, a great little welcome to the states

We're happy to welcome so many Australians to our historic hotel as they either start or end their extended vacation of the U.S. And being so close to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), getting here (YAY!) or going home (BOO!) couldn't be easier!

Stayed here a few times in 2006 and 2007, loved it then, loved it now. Matt and company make everything as chilled out and relaxed as possible. When arriving pull up in back, they help you with your luggage and direct you where to park on the local streets - all good. The available beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach accessories in the main office were also a big help.

The funkiness and vibe of life at your doorstep is wonderful. Had my wife, baby, and mom for this trip and we couldn't have been happier day or night. Walk, bike or run up to Santa Monica, enjoy the awesome beach right outside, people watch etc. Just enjoy the parade.

If you can swing an oceanfront view room or side view room it's def worth it. Also, like them on Facebook as Matt posts cool pics all the time.

When i first got to Venice i thought this was not the part of town for me, or to bring my family on vacation. We'd heard that Venice was good for "people watching" so we tried Venice Beach Suites & Hotel. The parking was tight, but close and nearby. It's a busy part of LA with a lot of local vendors minstrels, skaters etc.

But the hotel is a wonderful piece of 20's/30's architecture. We had a beachfront room - it was our last night in California and it gave us a great slice of Venice right from room 202. It's a good walk (2.5 miles) to Santa Monica pier from the hotel.

Great service when arriving long past midnight due to delayed flight from Europe. Room was great without any view but hotel is close to Venice Beach that you´re on the walk as soon as you leave Venice Beach Hotel.

This is an incredibly important review, detailing our office hours and late arrival procedure...

While we have a live-in night clerk who is available to assist with planned after-hours check-ins, we highly advise guests to arrive during our daily office hours of 9am to 9pm so we can greet you warmly and in person, giving you the proper welcome to Venice Beach that you deserve.

We had a great time. Awesome location, nice staff and cozy nice rooms. It was great being right on the beach. Easy and enjoyable walk to Santa Monica pier or bike along the beach. Close to everything and good options for food and drink. I would recommend this spot!
