It took an hour to battle through 30 miles of traffic to get to our hotel here. But it was worth it. We are right on the beach, and in a very nice room. It's the last night of our trip.

This morning we went back to beloved Lori's diner for breakfast and were sorry for ever straying! Straight after breakfast we needed to get the Bart train back to the airport and catch our flight back to LAX, our last connecting flight of the journey. Check in etc was smooth but on the runway there was a 30 minute delay- I didn't mind as I was …
Am Morgen waren wir einkaufen gegangen, damit wir für das BBQ am Nachmittag gerüstet waren. Zeljko hatte sich auf 14.00h angekündigt. Mit geringer Verspätung traf Zeljko dann bei uns ein und einem gemütlichen Grill-Nachmittag stand nichts mehr im Wege. Ausgerüstet mit 'New York Strip Steaks' und 'Fillet Steaks' sowie einigen Sierra Nevada …

We loved the Venice suite
We stayed at the Venice Beach Suites for our honeymoon for two days last June, 2005. The staff were very friendly and helpful, Mrs. Tina has been very kind with us and gived us a lot of info on Los Angeles thinks to do! The location on the boardwalk is great (except for the litter, the forlorn homeless, and the lack of street parking).
No complains! we really loved it!
A HUGE disappointment
Before I booked my two-night stay at this dump, I read all of the wonderful reviews and saw the pretty pictures. But when I got there, everything was exactly the opposite. Even though I was "upgraded" to a suite with a partial beach view, it was still terribly disappointing. Here is a summary of the problems:
-no maid service
-loud music from a room down the hall
-construction/renovation noise and dust
-hair in the shower and kitchen
-dirty blinds, floors, closets, etc.
-an extremely small, old elevator (circa 1900)
-an unpleasant neighborhood
I listed my compliants on the customer survey form, but received no apology from the management. This hotel is definitely NOT worth the $100+ price tag.
We stayed at the Venice Suites, 417 Ocean Front Walk, (not to be confused with the Venice Beach Suites at 1305 Ocean Front Walk) from April 28 - May 2, 2005, and we loved it. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer.
Get your tetnus shot first
Old, outdated, and overpriced. Never again.
This is a find.
Spur of the moment trip with no reservations to stay any where brought us from Disney to Venice for a couple of days. We stumbled on this place and the owner/ manager had a great beach view room he rented us. I dont think I would want one of the inside rooms as a view of the beach is what we were looking for. GREAT location, fun, you have to want to be in Venice in the first place and youll understand the sceen. Check out our photos youll see. Next to a great park, bike rental place and good food and deals on things on the street. Great for a quick trip to weirdsville.
We stayed at the Venice Beach Suites for a week in the Spring of 2005. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location on the boardwalk is great (except for the litter, the forlorn homeless, and the lack of street parking), but be very careful which room you are booked into. We were placed in one of the worst hotel rooms I have stayed in in North America and certainly the worst one ever in the $100-125 range. (I often stay in a Motel 6 sort of place and think a Holiday Inn is pretty nice) This was a $40 dollar room, not a $125 room. We are kicking ourselves for not marching down to the office the next morning and insisting on something better.
In the middle of things
A great location with fun days and quiet evenings and awesome view.
Super great and helpful owners and staff
We had a great experience even though it is a budget rather than a posh Hotel. Our room was less expensive than the "family rooms" at the local hostels, with better amenities as it has a private kitchen and en-suite batroom with shower and bathtub. We stayed for 16 days and were given a great long stay rate.
Fantastic location directly on the beach front, vibrant and entertaining during the day, quiet at night. Despite the building having stood for some 100 years it is well maintained and has clearly gone through well planned renovation at some point.
Safe, quaint and right on the beach
I stayed three nights here with my teenage son and loved it! The rooms are newly renovated and very clean. Ther is a small kitchenette, cozy bathroom and hardwood floors. The front door is right on the boardwalk.
This is the place to stay for the complete Venice beach experience.
