Average hotel.

Posted Feb 25, 2017
Hotel is ok. Housekeeping not only knocked on the door at 8 am even though we had a do not disturb sign up but they open the door and tried to come in the room. When we told the front desk they said housekeeping said it was kids??? I guess they give kids a key to our room?

Boutique hotel in Abbot Kinney area

Posted Feb 13, 2017
Pros: Staff was very helpful, nice, and efficient. There's plenty of street parking right outside and they recommended it.
Cons: Better lighting. Rooms stay dark even with all lights on.
Location: Fun and hip part of West LA / Venice Beach, plenty of food and drinks options. FREE shuttle to the beach and back, free bikes.
We only stayed one night, and due to the (rare!) rainy conditions, could not use any of the nice outdoor perks of the hotel or walk much around. The Kinney provided a good and safe shelter, and our room was a nice suite with plenty of space and charm. They have a small pool and hot tub, and a cute outdoor bar and lounge area where you can bring your own drinks. Also, ping pong tables -- too bad we could not use them in the rain. Nice touches in the remodel of the place, from the rebuilt rotary phones to the pop-art bedside tables. That said, this is not a new building, but a former motel or apartment building that has been refurbished and remodeled. It doesn't feel fresh and new, and it's not cheap, but neither are nearby options for a comparable hotel class. Kudos for the effort, the personality, and for the excellent personnel that runs the hotel.

Good Value Hotel

Posted Feb 8, 2017
Pros: Helpful staff, modern decor, clean, safe and great breakfast
Cons: Parking somewhat expensive, street noise can disturb and bathroom could benefit from expel air to avoid steaming up after shower
Location: Location handy if you have a car, go to Venice beach for curiosity but Manhatten beach and Santa Monica are terrific
Good hotel, excellent value, great breakfast, helpful staff, clean, safe and great breakfast. Could improve experience with free parking, street noise reduction measures and expel air in bathroom.

Fantastic location and great value in Venice. Walk to Abbott Kinney, Canals and more. Rooms are cute. Location is easy and fast from LAX. Hotel staff helpful when we arrived early and with holding bags at departure. Recommend!

Our room was spacious and modern. Very quiet at night. Very good free breakfast in the morning with fantastic coffee. A short drive to the freeway as well was nice.

Very nice hotel and convenient location

Posted Jan 17, 2017
Pros: Not just a run of the mill place but rather something out of the ordinary.
Location: Easy walking to Venice beach and Santa Monica.
The room was immaculate and was decorated in a fun modern style. The staff was very friendly and helpful. While we were there a mural was revealed on the side of the building. There was a band and all was quite festive.
