Location was excellent - fronts on Venice Beach and bike path. New renovation and design was excellent. Bathroom design is spacious, functional and attractive. We liked the secure storage for our touring bicycles. Restaurants and cafes nearby. No air conditioning. This wasn't a problem but it could be when it is hot .
Staff really helpful and friendly. Hotel and room spotlessly clean and comfortable. Generally good room facilities. Good cafe and restaurant opposite hotel. Santa Monica 5 minutes walk away. Beach 2 minutes away. Regular public transport into Santa Monica Centre - can walk along coast to SM - about 20-30 mins. Not really. Just found it odd that the hotel had all other facilities in the room except tea/coffee making. After a 20 hour journey from UK this could have been a disaster, but I did check with hotel before leaving and bought a kettle at Heathrow! Management have said they hope to have this put right in the near future - I shall be checking!!! The only other thing was that late at night the hotel frontage was so dimly lit and no street lights - not very inviting - that I wondered if I was in the right place - but the staff inside made up for that and despite this I would certainly stay here again.
Only that it was on the beach......................... No parking onsite, no air conditioner, rooms were not as clean as should be ( m&m's under the bed), no screens on the windows,..................................
I got a view of the beach from my room which was amazing! needs more toiletries and small things like a notepad and pen and info about what there is to do in Venice and santa monica in the hotel rooms. More pillows.
people were extremely professional and friendly. place excellent. good for vacation.room essential.
Great hotel. We turned up at 11am and got checked into our room straight away. The room was clean and had comfortable beds (a luxury after 2 weeks staying in hostels). Hotel staff were helpful and polite.
Small hotel but great area 47 rooms 18 parking spaces
My friends and I liked the location of the Cadillac Hotel. Right on the beach, and a 20min walk to the Santa Monica Pier. I don't think the price is worth it. I would only base the price on the location. I found that the staff were not knowledgable on the nightlife in L.a (especially). Considering there are younger adults that would like to go out and party a few nights. I feel that the staff should warn their guests about the area in the evenings. It isn't very safe, esp if you are alone. There isn't enough parking to accommadate all their guests. I found it a bit of an inconvience to have the sink and the toilet in separate rooms.
The location is absolutely perfect, if you're after Venice Beach. Venice is certainly not for everyone and is a little edgy, but I loved it. I stayed in two different rooms during my stay and saw another one and it is true what the owners say - they have completely renovated every room. The rooms were very comfortable and the views are amazing. There is a little outside noise, but nothing that kept me awake at night. All in all I give it a 10 out of 10. Slight outdoor noise, but really nothing too bad.
Brayant was extremely helpful and friendly
very helpful staff, they know the area and places to see
Right on the beach, great staff, restaurants and bars within walking distance. The downside of being ON Venice Beach is the screaming homeless outside your Windows at all hours. Also, the hotel walls are THIN. Not the place to stay for a good night's sleep
the view the restaurant was bad . poor service, hostess is so lazy
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. 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.
It was close and convenient to my son who lives in Venice. Stayed there in Dec. in the newer rooms on the top floor which was much nicer than the room I had this time. Also, I think the 6th. floor room was about the same price as the room where I was this time.(5th floor) Yes, I opened the sliding door during the night for some fresh air. It was difficult to sleep because of the noise(homeless sleeping in the alley) that my room overlooked.
Hotel Erwin is perfectly located on Venice beach, the staff is excellent, restaurant serves excellent breakfasts, nothing to complain about.
Miguel was fabulous and helped us in many ways, he went above and beyond. The entire staff was friendly and helpful The music on the roof did keep us up, and the ear plugs cost money
Was given great upgrade; rooftop is fantastic Absolutely everything was great!
The hotel is realy gret. Great staff, wonderful instalations..... So I really could live there. The price and the cost to park, once the garage is inside the building of the hotel.
Great location, very new, and very nice staff! Perfect place in Venice.
We loved the new and greatly designed rooms, as well as the young atmosphere of the hotel. The rooftop bar will take off - it is a great place. We will be back! The staff needs some more time together to make everything run smoothly. But they were always very nice and friendly - thanks for a great time with you!
Closeness to the beach and beach walk.We were near the action and still felt safe. I really liked the windows and airiness, the chairs at the end of the hall looking out over the beach. Not really a complaint, the parking was a little difficult but that was to be location-location. Good restaurants.
I did not see any live bugs; only dead ones. Room looked nothing like the pictures. Level of maintenance was abysmal. Linens were not commensurate with price of hotel.
location and friendliness of the staff. Lack of secure parking
I liked how it was perfect for a couples getaway, especially with the room we purchased. Hard unloading our things since the lot next to it was full.
Perfect in every way. Room was fantastic, the rooftop was dreamy, location is exactly what we wanted. Parking is a hassle, but that is absolutely to be expected in this area...and it is free.
Venice Suites offers a genuinely helpful staff, modern and super-clean rooms, fantastic roof deck and an unparalleled location right on the beach/boardwalk. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. :)
We absolutely LOVED this place. I would give it a 4 or 5 star status. The parking was not close, but we would stay here again. Probably our favorite Hotel we have stayed in. Ever.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Staff was great, clean room, white sheets, plenty of sunlight in our room....A+ A+ A+ Parking could be closer, nonetheless it works!
We didn't like it, we LOVED this hotel!!! The view, the roof, the elevator, the beach is right outside the door, everything was Amazing! We will definitely stay here again and again :)
The location was awesome! Beach front, you can't beat that!
First floor mini apartment right on the beach. Loved the decor and how we were amongst it all. Having said that, quiet at night & very safe area. No... Booked at short notice and exceeded our expectations.
Location, manager is helpful Some homeless and weird people around the hotel.
Windows did not lock, no one in the office most of the time, crazy tennants
Location can't be beat, directly on the beach. Room was very clean and pleasant, parking was a few blocks but walkable. Rooftop terrace had a great view and nice seating. The neighborhood is noisy, especially at night. This didn't bother us but those who want quiet might want a more remote location.
Ir was ok for a budget place didnt feel too safe in the hotel surroundings in the night...
The people at the lodge were really amazing. They were friendly and could answer a lot of questions. Dom is the events coordinator there at the hostel and he used to take everyone out for nightly events which allowed poeple to interact with each other. There were people from many different countries and it was interesting to share their perspective on things. The beachside views was fantastic. The music around reminds you of san Francisco in the 60's. They also have free breakfast in the morning, a separate room if you want to store huge luggage and a common room where people from different rooms can talk to each other during the day. At $35 per night, i think that its a good deal compared to the expensive hotels in LA The spring beds were really not that comfortable. I didn't get much sleep. Also there is just 1 shared bathroom for 8 rooms which could get cramped up somtimes. Add to that, those bathrooms get clogged often. I also had to struggle in getting the door open as the key would not fit in completely. The vending machine is out of order.
