Perfect spot on Mother Beach

Posted Jun 24, 2014
We stayed here for four nights. When we arrived we received a very warm welcome, the lady at reception orientated us to the hotel and room facilities. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Our patio was huge with plenty of furniture, overlooking the stunning beach and Marina. We could not have hoped for a better view! Perfect! The hotel was perfectly positioned to enable easy access to all the treasures Marina Del Rey has to offer, made even easier by the water bus offering tickets anywhere in the Marina for $1 each way. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would look to return in the future.

Great alternative to expensive "luxury" hotels.

Posted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: The view and the location. Continental breakfast was free. Very convenient.
Cons: Needs some updating. The AC could use a replacement.
Location: Close to everything. Use the buses to get anywhere.
As the title says, set your expectations a notch lower and save a lot. The hotel was surrounded by name brand hotels costing twice as much. The location was unbeatable! Walk out the back to the surprisingly nice beach. An easy ten minute walk to Venice Beach, tour bus stops leading to all the beaches and LA attractions, and tons of food choices makes this a great place to stay. A bit rough around the edges, but the hotel is clean, safe, and a great value.

good location

Posted Jun 4, 2014
having researched hotels in L.A they are particularly expensive compared to say L.Vegas.....where as the room was by no means glamorous it was clean and the view over the Marina was lovely and the staff very helpful indeed. I would recommend this hotel to friends.

Great location! Lot's of amenities!

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: The location right on the beach was wonderful!
Location: Within walking distance of Venice beach.
I went to Marina Del Rey for a sports event and the staff was so accomodating. They made sure there was coffee brewed at 5 am for the people that needed to be at the event by 6 am.

Good hotel next to Marina Del Ray beach

Posted Jun 1, 2014
Pros: Clean and tidy hotel in a good location. Tea or coffee provided in the lobby togeather with books and dvd,s
Cons: In room safes would be beneficial
Location: In a quiet location within walking distance to Venice Beach. Santa Monica can be reached either by the path along the beach or by bus
Hotel is just a 10/15 minute walk to Venice Beach pier. We had a upper bayside room which gave great views of the beach and harbour. The room came with the added advantage of a $50 dollar dinner voucher that could be used at the Cheesecake Factory next door. Excellent staff and a good breakfast was provided in the morning

Air conditioning antiquated and inadequate.

Air conditioning should be updated, especially fir hot summer months. Breakfast not up to par considering the nightly rate. Location beautiful.

Awesome little hotel!

Posted May 8, 2014
This place is great! It's in a great location to Venice and the staff are awesome - as we checked in quite late. The room was really clean and tidy and the bed was very comfortable. It's also very close to the airport. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Not for business travel

Posted May 7, 2014
Pros: Good location
Cons: Renovate the entire hotel.
The hotel is rundown with primitive facilities. There is a in window air conditioner that makes lots of noise. The bed is like sleeping on a marshmallow. This is definitely for staying on a budget. The free breakfast is mostly cornflakes with milk. There is a beach outside the hotel for swimming that is at the end of the bay behind hundreds of boats moored in the marina.As a boat owner, I know there is much oil, fuel and human waste that comes out of boats. I would not recommend swimming.
