Ranked #3 of 11 Hotels in Marina del Rey

Reviewed 11 October 2013

I travel a lot for work and play. The best way I can describe this Inn is the following:

Better than a Holiday Inn Express and just under a Westin (For the rooms, no joke, suite style, two TV's robe, nice bathrooms with 4 star shower head + free breakfast!) but at a HI Express Price. They have parking, a hottub and fitness center. Okay, so now the dose of reality. Pool is small and fitness center has bare basics but are you there to swim laps or do squats? A 7 minute walk gets you to the marina.
Staff was very friendly and professional. So for $119, if you thik you can do better, sorry, you would be wrong!

Room Tip: they advise all suites so I am presuming 302 is just as nice as the rest.

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting LA. Hotel is close to the airport and close to Venice Beach, Santa Monica pier etc. We paid about $125 per night and this was much less than other nearby places. Great free breakfast and parking as well. Highly recommended.

Lovely big rooms, recently refurbished. Parking under hotel, small breakfast room (included in price) get down early as it fills up at busy times. Great place to eat nearly opposite 'The Sunny spot' with a courtyard,(south american/Caribean food). Nearby MUST to visit- Abbott Kinney Boulevard, cool place to shop and browse.

The rooms are very large and have been recently refurbished, so everything is in great condition. The hotel manager and all of the staff are very gracious and welcoming. They have free indoor parking and also have a self serve laundry which was useful in our case because we had just stepped off a cruise ship They also have a small pool in the courtyard which is very nice.
All in all great value and enjoyed our stay.

Visited in June 2013. Had a lovely, relaxing stay in this hotel. Great setting, within easy reach of transport, restaurants and beach. Rooms were lovely, clean, modern. Cleaners scrubbed the rooms everyday! Breakfast was very plentiful and tasty , with great choice to suit all tastes. Cheap and easy to use laundry. Lovely outdoor balcony breakout areas again very modern and arty. Glorious hot tub, with sun loungers and clean towels provided throughout day.
Staff really are amazing, helpful, polite and friendly. They really go the xtra mile to ensure you are looked after, with nothing being too much trouble. Really would recommend to any traveller,and certainly does feel like your on vacation. Thanks to all staff.......we were very sad to leave!!!!!

The staff are 5 Star, friendly and helpful. Clean rooms, tidy and excellent value. Close to Santa Monica, V Beach and the freeway.

We (my wife;) left a Coach messenger bag and some designer clothes etc in the room, the Hotel had them in safe keeping the next day when she discovered they were missing.
