Nestled on the beach, this Venice apartment building is within 1 mi (2 km) of Muscle Beach Venice and Venice Beach. Santa Monica Pier and Santa Monica College are also within 3 mi (5 km).
Pros: 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.Cons: 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.
Pros: the viewCons: the restaurant was bad . poor service, hostess is so lazy
