We stayed for a week during the summer, after saving up our bucks. Randy, the manager, was outstanding. He was friendly and so helpful in answering questions and seeing to it that our stay was comfortable. We always dreamed of staying right on the Venice Boardwalk and it was our dream come true!
This was our first trip to Venice (from N.Y. City) and without the colorful boardwalk, it wouldn't have been the same! The restaurants & cafes, vendors, street performers, artists, musicians and even the mélange of crazy people made it worthwhile. At night we noticed so many homeless folks camping near the boardwalk. Although we heard some loud expletives now and then, it was simply part of the reality of Venice. It was to be expected, considering these bad economic times. I met one homeless man who was a Vietnam vet. In spite of his condition, he seemed very kind. So if one's not open to the boardwalk realities, then maybe you should find a place that's quiet.
I would advise anyone to stay at the Venice Suites for a comfy stay and a memorable vacation. We're saving up for summer of 2012 to definitely return!
