In the heart of the Venice Beach boardwalk this spot is a little too close to where the magic mushrooms happen for my taste. It’s not what I recommend for a family to stay, but for more bohemian folks it is perfect, and central to the Venice excitement. The front entrance gets lost amongst the sunglasses and jewelry that line the surrounding shops. Just steps from the door are street vendors, tarot readers, boisterous locals, and bums. Towards the beach is the famous skateboard park, where tourists stop to watch the kids do professional-quality stunts. The hotel’s building has been around since 1908, with a storied past. The hallways are narrow, and the elevator is such an antique I wasn’t sure I wanted to ride in it. But we arrived safely to the upper floors to find small but charming rooms with exposed brick walls and many with views of the water. In the lobby, beach equipment is available to borrow free of charge.

Venice Beach has been called a “human carnival” and a “freak show,” and this hotel embodies that spirit. It’s a great spot for backpackers, Bohemians and international visitors who really want up-close-and-personal interactions with the wildness. Literally, you walk out the front door into the thick of it. Except for very liberal families, I’d advise against it for kids. But it is a whole lot of fun, especially if it’s your first time in Venice.
The rooms are small but nice, many with hardwood floors and exposed bricks. WiFi is free, and beach equipment can be borrowed from the lobby. There are heaters in the room, but no A/C (only ceiling fans and windows that do open), though you rarely need one here. Parking is not available directly through the hotel, but nearby lots can accommodate guests. Plan to book one month in advance for summer.

This place is a great find. It's located right on the boardwalk in Venice Beach. So you walk out of the front door onto the sand and all the street vendors. The rooms are huge and are apartment like. Small kitchen and all the needs for you to stay there for a night or a week. All the rooms are modernized with cool furniture and art, and this is juxtaposed to being in an old classic building that's been in Venice forever. If you don't mind being in the heart of Venice and not being at a 5 star resort, then this is a great find.
