We had just 3 nights here recently, The location is superb, and the hotel could not have been better. The staff all appear genuinely happy and keen to help, they all say hello and really seems to come from their hearts. I would name them, but it would seem unfair to pick anyone out, as I didn't always see their name badges. One who perhaps was particularly outstanding was Robbie who helped us with breakfast, making it one of the best breakfasts I have ever had in a hotel. Can't wait to go back!

I never got the idea of a "staycation" but last week, found myself exploring it more in depth. Married recently, my wife and I were recipients of a gift card at this hotel. It was about to expire, so we managed to book the LMU rate (Go Lions!) and find ourselves with a beautiful room, lofted ceilings, looking out on the water.

The hotel was beautiful. Peaceful. And yet active enough if we wanted it. We were walking distance to a few places to grab a bite to eat, and also enjoyed happy hour in the bar of the hotel as well as breakfast the next morning.

All in all, a great place to stay in the Marina!

Really fantastic hotel - especially if travelling with kids. We stayed for four days/three nights with our two small children and it was fab.

Location is brilliant in that it is close to LAX (so no wasting time travelling and good for junior plane spotting), but you can't hear the planes. It is right on a small, child friendly beach (not called Mother's Beach for nothing!), Venice Beach is an easy walk away and Santa Monica is an easy cycle away. We didn't venture far, but the freeway is close by too if we had.

Service is fantastic. All the staff we came across were super friendly and bent over backwards to help. The reception team give a fabulous welcome.

We opted for a one bedroom suite as we wanted a room option that would let us separate the (jet lagged) kids if we needed to so we could all get some sleep. It was a superb option. Lots of room even with a cot and the sofa bed out, massive master bathroom, comfortable bed, nicely appointed, quiet and balcony looking out over the boats and beach. The separate rooms had really been thought about - a really robust door in between the two rooms, that was largely sound proof. And black out curtains that actually fitted the windows! The position of the suites means the rooms are a little on the dark side, but this suited us given we were changing time zones and sleeping at odd times. (Sleep only got 4 rating below because the springs in the sofa bed were past their best by date - rather uncomfortable and squeaky).

We found the restaurant to be good as well, with lots of locals using it as well as guests. Lots of other eating options near by too - either walking or a short cab ride away. We found the list of recommended restaurants in the room folder was reliable (would especially rec the California Pizza Kitchen, the steak at the Cheesecake Factory and breakfast at Mercedes Cuban Grill).

In terms of being there with kids, the pool is heated and whilst not a kiddy pool it has big enough stairs for non-swimmers to play on, the beach is literally right in front of the hotel and is super kid friendly (possibly the shallowest beach in the world - with the most underworked life guard in the state! - with lovely sand), the restaurant has a kids menu which they try and get out quickly, and the hotel has a stash of cots, roll away beds and high chairs. While ticking the boxes on the family front, It is also a really nice place. It took us back to pre-kid days of staying in boutique hotels!

There is also an awesome play ground at the other end of the beach, and the big beaches are not far away. Perry's bike hire have options for cycling with kids (caboose and kids seats) - although in limited numbers. The paddleboard hire place on the beach front also has kayaks and kid-sized life jackets (the kids loved going out exploring the boats in the marina with their dad). There are markets near by and laundry services too.

Is definitely now our LA hotel of choice and we will be back.

One note of warning about getting there - watch cabs from LAX. They obviously don't like the short job a trip to JBI is. Our first cab refused to take us (saying they didn't have enough room for all our luggage when they probably did) and the one that did take us, took us a very long way around hence pushing up our fare. We only figured this out on the way back when the trip was half the time and cost. Specify they take Lincoln Boulevard,

Room Tip: One bedroom suites are great for kids - especially long-haul as you can split them up if required (and get some sleep yourself!). Always, always go for a marina view room - not sure how city view gets their name - it's really carpark or busy road view!

Very impressed with the Jamaica Bay Inn, very comfortable, free wifi, good gym, great value and beautiful views! I travel to LA quite bit for business and the location which is close to LAX and not far from Santa Monica is very convenient. Check their website for special discounts, I was able to take advantage of 20% discount for staying 3 nights which was not available on other booking sites. This is my new fave LA hotel.

Room Tip: Marina View Rooms are the best.
