Had a room on the street side. Quite noisy!

Posted Nov 16, 2017
You can hear the sound of the street. It feels like the window is open! But I checked several times and it is closed! Just avoid the street side if you can!

Fantastic Hotel!

Posted Nov 13, 2017
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.
My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this hotel! The staff was fantastic, the place was fun and decorated artsy and interesting. The room was spacious and comfortable, literally everything was great. Ping pong tables, fire pit and hot tub were all awesome add-ons as well, I would pick this hotel over and over again. By far one of my favorite hotels I have stayed in.

Funky place. Really nice.

Posted Nov 6, 2017
Pros: King bed was lovely.
Cons: Pool size not good for serious swimmers, but then the sea isn't far away.
Location: Short walk to the beach, tour bus around LA, and Harley Davidson shop!
Pool on the small side but everything else spot on. Breakfast was nice but limited options, while Buna cafe a short walk up the road had more on offer and was reasonable.

Nice room, excellent stay

Posted Sep 6, 2017
Pros: Room
Cons: I did not like the fact for paying for park the car but I guess this is common in Venice and other areas.
Location: Venice Beach, bike ride to Santa Monica Pier
Nice hotel, room was spacious, located near beach, rental bikes services, decoration.

Hotel more fun for the kids!

Posted Aug 21, 2017
Pros: Fun ambience, great for the kids. Good location, and most of the staff are really nice/polite.
Cons: Amenities, small service glitches, noise (old windows), and refresh towel supply more often!
Location: Good location.
My overall experience was enjoyable, the rooms where clean/with a playful ambience, and comfy beds. Most of the staff were a nice/friendly, as one should expect. The first day (on. Monday) we were exhausted due to travel. I asked the the girl at reception if she could advise of a pizza place we could order food. She seemed irritated by my question, and I was told no deliveries allowed (even if I waited in the lobby?)-we're unfamiliar with the area, and hotels are supposed to be accommodating. I felt dismissed, and brushed off. My other complaints- Noisy due to traffic (old windows). This hotel is more for the kids-many children running around screaming (not the hotels fault) but relaxing by the small pool, or in the lounge area, is not doable during the day. No room service (we knew this) so, expect to go out often just to eat or pick up food. Overall, I might come back for a shorter stay then go elsewhere. It's an interesting area! Easy to get to LA-Downtown or head down Hwy 1- to beautiful Huntington beach etc. Santa Monica (Pier) is close- which is a fun place at night too!. For the $$, and lack of amenities... it's not worth it for a full stay.
