“Nice, clean, affordable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012

Needed a room Saturday night of Labor Day weekend and didn't have a reservation. This place is well maintained and apparently under new management. The staff without exception was very friendly and accommodating, particularly Caroline, who got me the last room available!

Everything worked, good hot water, plenty of towels, hair dryer, excellent TV. The A/C was relatively loud and constant, but not overly. The room was on the top floor facing the street, which was occasionally noisy with Saturday night traffic.

There is a bar down stairs with locals coming outside to smoke next to the elevator. Wasn't a problem, but others might be sensitive to the smoke and chatter, particularly on the floor directly above.

There is a Subway co-located and there is a coupon for breakfast at the Subway. Kids eat free. Fast food restaurants adjacent and across the street and a nearby Denny's.

Recommend getting a room on the backside, away from the street.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms directly above bar on the second floor. Rooms on the backside, away from the road will...

We stayed at the Venice Palm Inn for the weekend of August 11th. One last relaxing trip before the kids headed back to school and nephew was turning 21 on Sunday so he wanted to go to Venice Beach.
I will say - I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is still being renovated, so the only rooms available where away from the pool, no big deal - I am not afraid to walk! The breakfast was downstairs from Subway - perfect and quick. We love going to Venice for quick getaway weekends. We love the beach, which is but a 5 minute drive away from the hotel, and we love to hunt for sharks teeth. If you are expecting the Ritz, then go stay there! This is a great place to get a good nights sleep (beds were actually comfortable) and head out to the beach. All
employees were more than nice, there for anything we needed!
Living in Florida, gives us the oppurtunity travel often for short weekend get aways and we can not always stay at expensive hotels so this is now our go to when going to Venice

The room was clean and rates are reasonable, but we did not feel welcome, the WIFi was not good. For some reason everyone was being placed farthest away form the office and pool. The b-fast at Subway is weak,,(that means not good).I would in no terms call this a 4 circle Hotel,, it is old and needs updating badly,, If I was in town on business it is ok by myself but not a place I would come again with my wife to explore Venice. Simply a value hotel / motel that is getting age on it..

Room Tip: get a room closer to the office for WIFI,, dont eat at Subway,, Dunkin Donuts is down the road about...

After reading past negative reviews, I would have to disagree with them. Visited Venice Palm Inn and received extraordinary customer service the entire weekend. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were average but clean. Location was close to beaches, restaurants and the bike trails. The free breakfast at the adjacent Subway was an added bonus. Just recently missed 2nd eversave promotion. Hope its offered again. Would surely return. Thanks again to the staff for an enjoyable stay.

My wife and I just cellibrated our 20th aniversary with our new family at the Venice Palm Inn. We are very picky and like very good service at a good price. We had many special requests that were handeled wonderfully, without question or delay. We were treated like family,(in a great way) and above and beyond the call of duty with very professional and friendly service and perfect results. We plan on being back many more times if the same personal are there. I have owned my company for 28 years in customer service so I know how to tear apart any one, but also like to say Thank You for great work. From General Manager to Cleaners, all were grade A #1. We never had to say one thing more than once or waite for any request. Thanks again Crew, we will see you soon... Danny&Edie

Room Tip: We stayed in the back for quiet

The room was ok you get what you paid for. the pool was too hot and dogs was running around.
In the morning, the breakfast at the subway location was awfull.Never again, prefer to get some in an other place.

Room Tip: room at the back of the building on the parking nothing special to say.

you get what you pay for. We spent two nights. Our room was on the second floor in the front of the building just outside the elevator and over the bar. It was very noisy and we kept waking up through out the night. The hotel is older, although the room seemed clean, the tub enclosure and sink were made of some kind of cheap pvc. The tub looked like it hadn't been scrubbed in some time. The fixtures were surrounded with rust. The toilet seat was old and didn't look clean. You'd think they would have at least replaced it. I really didn't want to step into that shower. The first day there was no toilet paper in the bathroom but we found one on the closet shelf. The coffee pot hadn't been cleaned out. I will not stay again.
