Check in very smooth and the staff member was expecting us which was great. Free upgrade to a side ocean view room which was a nice surprise. The staff were very helpful and spent a lot of time personally looking into Bus times to Hollywood for us, printing the results and advising us how to find the correct stop.
The hotel is in a prime location at the centre of Venice beach area. I was worried it would be noisy but it was fine. The area has a distinct feel and seams to be the focus for a lot of off the wall characters and a haven for visitors. It is calm in the morning but can get very busy in the day and at weekends. Its very vibrant and busy but could be a bit hectic if your looking for more of a relaxing location. Good news it is only a 10 minuit walk each directions to the calmer areas of Santa Monica and towards the Marina. It’s a great place to hire a bike or surfboard and explore. Its is worth noting that the area by the hotel has a slightly edgy atmosphere after dark which may not be to everyone’s taste.
Room was good and clean if quite compact but had a lot of local character. It did perhaps miss some the comforts and space one would get from a motel/hotel room but it would be short sighted to judge it on these aspects given it prime location and its totally individual and local experience.
