Room and location as advertised. Unfortunately we had yelling homeless people outside our windows from 8:00pm to 3:30am. The manager said the police could do nothing. Hard moving luggage through stairs in the rear. Parking is several blocks away and was given the wrong password. Baby pack and play was stained and came unsetup with no sheets. The loudest doors slams in the hallway I've ever experienced. Wouldn't recommend for parents with strollers. Ok if you go to bed drunk or are deaf.
This place is exactly my style. Not only is the location perfect, but the room itself is so quaint. It has so much more than a typical hotel has, including a small kitchen and appliances, a couch and table, and its right on the beach!
Stayed here in early April. Incredible location, VERY polite staff. We didn't arrive until 4am due to a flight delay and even then they were very accommodating. The nightlife in Venice is very active and fun! I 100% recommend this hotel to anyone searching for a unique place to stay on the beach! Side Note: Don't buy the $5 sunglasses at all of the vendors no matter how tempting it is =D
You get a lot for what you pay here, as long as you don't expect 5 star luxury. Yes, the rooms are a little dated but a sparkling new room with all todays gadgets would probably more than double the price. The area can be somewhat uncomfortable for those not accustomed to the kind of people hanging around, but hey, guess what, it is not suburbia.... But, right at the boardwalk, close enough to public transport if you need it and a lot to see and do on foot. We had a perfect couple relaxing days at the end of our RV trip through (Mid)Western USA.
LOVED the location! Staff was so friendly and accommodating (Jasper is awesome!)! SO awesome that the hotel lends you beach accessories for free: boogie boards, sand toys, camping chairs! Can't wait to come back!
