Great Stay

Posted May 31, 2017
My stay was short and very nice. The hotel is located close enough to the beach, but not close enough to be mired in traffic. There staff is their greatest asset, everyone was wonderful. I totally enjoyed my stay.

I hated to leave

Posted May 30, 2017
Pros: Its location, the pleasant staff, my room
Cons: Maid service could be slow (this is not unique to this place).
Location: Fisherman's Village is a nice walk nearby; there is a free shuttle around the area. This is near Culver City, so tour of Sony Studios! Swimming, boats
I chose to stay here after a whirlwind stay in Hollywood, and was I smart to do this. I had a balcony room overlooking vibrant colored flowers and the marina just beyond. The room was much larger than I expected, and everything was clean and/or worked! The restaurant was being renovated (the inside), so guests had to eat outside. My first night, it was quite cold, but gas heaters provided warmth and conversation starters between tables. Although the staff apologized for the inconvenience, other than that one colder night, dining outside was pleasant. This was a wonderful place to view the sky - extremely beautiful. This was a most relaxing place, and I intend to return. I'm going to add a "what could be improved" as so few characters are allowed for that - It's true that in most hotels nowadays, rooms aren't made up until the late afternoon - making "turn down service" kind of a silly offer. When I come back to the room in mid-afternoon, I expect my room to be made up. It wasn't. I needed to ask for it to be done (but then, I have to leave!). It affects planning for the day, you know. I know most hotels have this issue - it is usually due to short staffing. Anyway, as soon as I called the desk, this was quickly taken care of.

Not on beach but in a marina. Mile and a half to Venice beach and you have to walk in streets. No beach connection

Nice hotel for its small size.

Posted May 23, 2017
Pros: Comfortable room, nice staff good location, lots of restaurants nearby. Free shuttle available for Marina Del Ray area.
Cons: Eliminate daily self parking fee or include in the room rate.
Location: Venice beach within walking distance, Santa Monica beach nearby, lots of restaurants nearby great access to the marina and activities.
This is a nice quaint hotel. The rooms are very large and spacious and are equipped with all of the necessities. The location is ideal for visiting the beaches and access the highways. The airport is only 10 minutes away as well.

Hotel is in a great area!

Posted May 3, 2017
Location: Hot Shrimp is a fun and casual restaurant. Good place for shrimp.
Overall it was a pleasant experience, after I got over how rude the front desk attendant was while checking into the hotel. The Inn itself is in a great area and has it's own beach. The gardens and landscaping is beautiful and well maintained. The restaurant staff very welcoming and pleasant.

Very comfortable hotel

Posted Apr 20, 2017
Pros: Very comfortable rooms.
Cons: Bathroom lighting could use improvement. Lighting is not the best for putting on makeup unless you use the makeup mirror, which is in an awkward area
Location: Nice location, walkable to restaurants and the beach.
We chose Jamaica Bay Inn because its close to the beach and walking distance to bars and restaurants near the beach.
