Hotel is right on the boardwalk with very nice restaurant (voucher for 1/2 price breakfast0 on 1st floor for people watching and of course the beach and ocean. We were upgraded to an ocean view room (no. 12) which was very nice with small living room, kitchenette, and wonderful queen bed. Parking was only about 150 feet to south (overnight $25). Kyle (manager) and Jose (who checked us in) were gracious and made sure we had what we needed. We even got a temporary parking by hotel after we checked out. Rented bicycles only 3 doors away; basically well situated to beach activities, dining, and not too far from Santa Monica pier. We liked everything, but would caution that there is no elevator. While there is a halfway house across the alley, we had no issues nor did we see anything untoward. The real spectacle is on boardwalk.
the view the restaurant was bad . poor service, hostess is so lazy
They had a brand new pc to connect to internet. yes, I was robbed in my room by clean service!
The breakfast was very good, there was a free computer with the internet, and the room was very beautiful. No.
Location, Price Not enough parking. Had to park on street. Staff very abrupt at times
nice perks like free wifi; great location - close to beach and other spots in Venice; nothing fancy but very comfortable The front desk staff was rather abrupt - spoke so quickly I could hardly understand what he said; I noticed that my card was debited for an extra charge that I now need to follow-up on.
Equipment of their rooms is very good and for money you pay, you get really good room. They have plazma TV, fridge, ok bathroom, iron/board, and a lot of other things to make your stay very comfortable. Even beds are pretty good and comfortable. I didn't have too much contact with staff, but I noticed that they're happy if you don't ask them too much... Of course, everything I asked for was handled in maneer, but still... :) cleanless of the rooms is something they should take care of... bathroom seems little bit old and not so clean. Rest of the room is pretty good cleaned except carpet, that obviously needs vacuming and deep cleaning :)
