Well 1 destination down, 6 more left! I've just left after spending 3 days with the beautiful citzens of L.A. I had a fun fulled time, cramming as much as I could in. I did the tourist stuff like Universal Studios and the Walk of Fame in Hollywood. The real highlight of the stay was going to see the Jay Leno show live. Front row seats enabled us to …

... before the long trip home. Rodd and I had some of our 6 packs left so we had a couple drinks each and were all feeling quite good by the time we got to the airport. Thank goodness we did this cos after a big day out we really needed this down time to regroup!

We had a quick and easy check in and trip through security... alas no fast pass for me here!! Next stop was the foodhall for dinner... took me ages to decide what to have but eventually ...

... in winter you could still swim if you wanted. It's a tad cold, but be brave, go on! We, and by we I mean everyone but me because I can't skate if my life depended on it, rented roller blades. Got me a bike I did. Yep! Clever, huh?! The weather was once again amazing, and we spent the whole day riding (and skating) along the beach paths, checking out the sites, the great food at another restaurant, and observing the LA people doing their thing. Ahhh, lazy winter days where the sun ...

... Getty Centre, which is an amazing art gallery and exhibition space high on the hills overlooking LA. The view from the outside was incredible as the sun went down. The main exhibition at the moment is illuminated manuscripts from Canterbury Cathedral. It is amazing to see the intricate work in the manuscripts made 800 years ago. We spent a few hours wandering through the exhibitions, and enjoyed the view of LA at night - a twinkling carpet spread below ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Venice On The Beach Hotel Los Angeles

    New Management - Great Experience!!

    from

    What a find! I was skeptical about staying at this property after reading the reviews, especially considering the previous manager. I can gladly tell all who read that the manager was removed during our visit. The property ownership has installed a new management team, a couple who look to make every customer's experience more than satisfactory.

    The location of the property speaks for itself, with easy access to restaurants, shops, and entertainment, as well as having the pacific ocean as your front yard. Guests share the open and immaculate ocean front patio and often can be seen in informal gatherings where a good time is to be had by all.

    I have already booked my next stay for November.

    Great Experience!!!

    from

    I found this place through a company called westsiderentals and it was awesome. The location is to die for and the staff was super nice. The whole place had a great beach vibe and we extended our vacation one more week because we enjoyed it so much. The price was very reasonable and the ocean breezes were great to wake up to every morning. [-] I know this hotel has received some bad write ups on this site but believe me, the place rocks and is very clean and quiet, except for the waves!!!!

    The manager from hell

    from

    "Even in the deepest valleys, there are pits".. this could be the perfect analogy for this nightmare.

    Hotel and Manager from Hell.

    from

    This stay was the worst experience imaginable, an enquiry has been made through the local Councilman's Office for Venice Beach and the Housing Enforcement Office for the City of Los Angeles. As the complaint progresses hopefully the owner will realize what is happening there and make the appropriate changes.

    Nice location, but Atrocious otherwise

    from

    Cannot begin to say how bad of an experience this is. Dodgy clientele coming and going at all hours, unconcerned staff, and constant construction at any hour of the morning or night. This is rather more of a halfway-house than a "hotel".

    Other reviews that found it cheap & dirty are correct --- though for some reason that doesn't seem to translate to inexpensive, by any means.

    Please note that One Bubble Highlighted in the Traveller Rating equals --- "terrible".

    A nightmare for couples or families.

    Never Again Will We Stay In This Dump !!

    from

    This is NOT a hotel, morel like a Hostel and a very cheap and dirty one at that. The rooms look much larger on the website, the place is dusty and dirty. Try and call the managers phone when you arrive-NO ONE ANSWERS.

    Take a drive a few blocks down the road and get a room at the Jolly Roger. Now they know how to run a hotel and it is alot cheaper than this dump.

    We were treated like family

    from

    The location of this hotel is unbelievable we never knew that a precious peral could just wash up on the the beach but we know it's possible and it goes by the name of Venice On The Beach Hotel.sitting on the patio overlooking the ocean is a dream that has to be experienced to be fully grasped.and the proximity to all the cool shops and restaurants is spectacular.The only thing that eclipses the location is the wonderful staff.And at the helm is their amazing manager janie.From the moment we set foot in our vaction haven we were treated to an unbelievable level of service.Janie has a way of treating people that is so special it radiates ,because of her the whole atmosphere is just fun and upbeat.

    we cant wait to return to the pink pearl

    Great Stay!

    from

    OK - This hotel is not a 5 star hotel and parking can be an issue but it is one of the VERY few hotels that is steps to the sand on Venice Beach. Venice is a very eclectic place and perhaps it takes a certain frame of mind to enjoy, but my stay at this hotel was very pleasant. The Manager Janie is very accomodating and goes out of her way to help you with ANYTHING you might need. I would recommend this hotel to anyone with an open mind who enjoys the fast activity and fun of Venice Beach. You could be in much worse places (like a Travelodge on Pico!)

    Never Again

    from

    It only received one bubble because I was unable to give it a zero!!! This hotel was completely run down on the inside. Upon arriving, there is no parking provided as it claims there is. Also, once you pay to park on the beach a few blocks away (where you can't park between 1-6am) since there is no street parking within about 8 blocks (hello, I'm carrying luggage!!!). Then you get into the hallway, which is missing ceiling tile and a wall panel (so there is a hose sticking out and you see baseboards). Then you pick up a phone, which the manager/owner tells us to go up to room 9 (after only taking my name to make sure I had a reservation), and says that when I get there to press 9999 to enter. Hello, how original???? and this is what keeps the room locked with all my stuff in it??? How many people who've stayed here before would know this? Then when we walk into the room, there is 2 holes in the ceiling with toilet paper stuffed in it to "conceal" one of them. Also, the place was extremely dusty on the desk, and nightstand. The ocean view I paid $200 for one night was a 2' wide by 4' tall window that was hard to open. Oh yea, and I walked into the bathroom where the shower was leaking and there was a red "party cup" that had a open bar of soap in it. Did someone use it already? Did they even clean the shower? Then I had to think, are the sheets under there even clean? Basically, I called up hotels where I booked, and left that place within an hour of arriving. Stayed at a very nice Travelodge on Pico & 32 or 33 for less than $130. I should have listened to the only other review on this site that said to stay somewhere else, and by the way, the pictures on the site (hotels) ARE NOT REPRESENTATIVE, stay somewhere else, yuck!

    Fugetabout this place...

    from

    Got a reservation for this place on Travelocity... no address given, no directions, phone number doesn't work, after over an hour of driving around in a cab working with several of Travelocity's folks, finally found the place courtesy of another web site where someone complained about how freakin' difficult this place is to find.

    Also, it's a fair dump, no parking to speak of, no hours posted, no sign stating that it is actually "Venice on the Beach" hotel, nothing.

    Do yourself a favor: Don't Stay Here Under Any Circumstances!! You can do much better for about the same money.
