Perched on the doorstep of the Pacific Ocean, the two-story Venice on the Beach Hotel looks out over famous Venice Beach, second only to Disneyland on Southern California's list of top tourist destinations. Here you will find wide strips of sand, a Boardwalk filled with street performers, artists and vendors, trails for roller skating, walking and jogging, and the outdoor gym area for iron pumpers known as Muscle Beach. The hotel is also just a Frisbee throw from all of the intriguing shops, restaurants, and entertainment spots that make this area such a prized attraction day and night.
The Venice on the Beach Hotel has eighteen guestrooms in three configurations: Deluxe Standard, Deluxe Ocean View, and Executive Suite. All rooms come with queen-size beds or California kings, plus cable/satellite television with premium channels as well as complimentary wireless Internet access. There are refrigerators and microwaves in each room, windows that open from inside, and bathrooms with showers only. Services include housekeeping daily, free local phone calls, rollaway beds on request, extra towels and bedding, hairdryers, and use of an iron and ironing board. Daily and weekly rates are highly affordable.
A number of on-site amenities are also provided for guest use, such as barbecue grills, a picnic area, a large beachfront patio with lounge chairs, and self-service laundry facilities. There is a fitness center nearby, too, which guests may use without charge, while the public volleyball courts are just in front of the hotel. And the coastal views and sunsets are nothing short of spectacular from the newly opened Upper Level 3rd Floor Deck.
Other activities in close proximity are provided by the area's street vendors and recreational facilities. Just outside the hotel you can have your caricature drawn, get a tattoo, play paddle tennis, have your fortune told, shoot some hoops, maneuver giant chess pieces, fish off Venice Pier, take a boat ride in Marina Del Rey, visit the Santa Monica Pier aquariums, get a lemonade and a hot dog on a stick, enjoy the rides at Pacific Park, or simply enjoy basking in the warm California sun.
Nearby Washington Boulevard is perfect for a stroll past locally owned cafys, specialty stores and gift shops while the sun is out, or for all the action of music, dancing and dining after dark. A number of fine restaurants are within easy walking distance, including Baja Cantina, Figtree's Cafy, The Terrace Cafy, Galy's Mediterranean, Cow's End, and more.
The Venice on the Beach Hotel has a "quiet hours'' policy between 11pm and 8am. Televisions and radios should not disturb neighboring rooms, and visiting friends are not allowed in the guestrooms during those hours. The entire hotel is smoke free. Pets are not permitted on the premises.
