Perfect place to stay in Venice

Posted Apr 20, 2017
I lived in Southern California before and was returning for a work trip. That being said, I do not like staying at the tourist-y, overcrowded places. I just want a place to stay that's nice, but feels like when I used to live in SoCal. This Inn is the perfect place to stay when visiting Venice. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The location is great- close to some fun food spots, close enough for a run on the beach, and not near the overcrowded boardwalk area of Venice beach. It's central to a lot of my favourite places in the LA area as well- you can head up north to Malibu or Santa Monica, spend some time on the Venice boardwalk or visit muscle beach, you can easily head down to Manhattan and hermosa beach, or hop on the highway and go to Disneyland or Crystal Cove. The hotel is cute and quaint. The breakfast isn't mind blowing, but there's enough variety to fill you up. The rooms are adorable.

Close to Venice Beach Pier

Posted Apr 17, 2017
Pros: The hotel theme and artwork really give you that local Venice Beach vibe.
Location: The location is the best part. You're a block away from the pier and boardwalk. Plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance.
The hotel staff was friendly and our check-in was quick. The room was small but met our needs comfortably. The continental breakfast was enjoyable and an added value.

Very close to the beach, restaurants

Pros: Great location, friendly staff, nice rooms.
Location: Venice beach is right there, walk thru the Canals, Abbot Kinney is right up the street as well for great shopping/restaurants.
Great location right in Marina Del Rey, about a block from the beach. Great restaurants all around, the boardwalk is right there as well to walk to. Super friendly staff and good size rooms as well as very clean.

Decent hotel near the ocean

Posted Feb 21, 2017
The hotel is decent and has lots of parking which is good. the room is decent size but I didn't stay in it much. Bathroom was very small. Whole room smelled of mildew, probably because it was close to the ocean. Have to be a bit careful in the area. Lots of homeless hanging out and the police do nothing about them. Don't carry a lot of valuables. Also, empty everything out of your car or it will get smash and grab. The included breakfast was terrible. Overall it is a decent hotel but the price is relatively high for the amenities. All the hotels in Venice beach charge way more than they are worth. Nearby Marina del Rey hotels charged even more.
