“Great value hotel in a very good location”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

We only stayed here for one night at the tail end of a 4 week trip through the US, but the time we did spend here was fantastic. We chose this hotel for proximity to Venice Beach (as we had the idea that actually staying on Venice Beach might be a bit too much), plus it was right near where we wanted to drop the rental car off after driving up from San Diego (the Hertz is in the Marriott just over the road).
It was a very pleasant surprise that the Inn itself was great - we were received in a friendly and efficient manner during checkin, and allowed to checkin early. The rooms themselves were large and clean. Beds were comfortable as well.
Lovely view of the water out the back of the hotel from the eating/bar area.
As I recall the Inn also had free Wifi as well, which is always welcome when on tour.
The main selling point for us was the location - this was a good jump off point to meet up with friends who live in LA, plus to get to the airport. It was also an easy walk down to Venice Beach and then to Santa Monica.
Nothing to complain about at all - I would happily stay here again on my next visit to LA.

I'm ashamed to say it's taken me almost 6 months to get around to writing this review. We stayed at Jamaica Bay Inn in Feb and have nothing but good words. We loved the location - easy to get to LA but far enough out to feel like a haven.

The staff are all super friendly and helpful and breakfast at the Beachside was perfect, overlooking neat gardens and the water edge. Some morning's we watched local school children taking part in canoeing and water sports, which was great fun.

The rooms are comfortable, modern and clean with very nice bedding.

The Cheesecake Factory is a short walk away, for meals out, as are plenty of other choices. We caught the bus to Santa Monica and then walked back from Venice Beach. Took us hours but it was a beautiful beach walk, followed by an amble through some pretty local architecture. There are some stunning houses in the area! When we told the locals where we'd walked from they thought we were nutters but if you have the stamina it's a great way to see the area.

I thoroughly recommend this hotel for its comforts, relaxation and wonderful staff. Sorry it's taken me so long to get around to writing this! :)

Room Tip: Most rooms have a balcony but it's worth saying you want a waterfront view, as we really enjoyed...

My wife and I visited Jamaca Bay in August, for our 29th Anniversary trip. I like to peope watch and just enjoy the time away from hard work, the stress and rat race of a full day, "every day" and all week long. My wife likes to shop and see the sites and do just about everything within reason that can be crammed into the time we have. In the to pay her back for all the support in such a fast paced work likfe we try to make it something memorable when we can. But in these economic times we tried to keep this year reasonable and only a few days...yet an adventure for us both. And I have to say that Jamaca Bay gave us everything we were looking for. Oh, everyone can find a few little nit-picky things to say about any place they stay...but I am going to go in a different direction here. You should really consider making this a possible site for a wonderful trip - when you get to Del Rey or want to come to the coast for a vacation, anniversary, birthday trip or any other reason!

Hotel folks are kind, courteousm helpful and friendly. If an error is made a reasonable discussion with a manager will get it settled and corrected within reason no matter wha the issue. View is great, the location allows you to drive, walk, ride bicycles, jog, take the water taxi ($1) which is caught right next to the hotel bay, to just about anywhere in the local vicinity you want to go within reason. The park for concerts, fishermans village for tours, dinner cruises, shops, site seeing, boating of all sorts for renting and paddling or driving and all pretty cheap. There are resturants withing walking and driving distance with a varity of themes and evening walks are relaxing, safe and mentally, emotionally and physically rewarding. You are also a short drive or by other means to the beach where you can rent cycles and tour or visit the shops and street vendors on Venice Beach etc. ($8 per hour)

Of course you can get into "Mothers Bay" by the hotel or the Ocean when you go over and swim but the Juccuzi and pool after dark are right outside your rooms or very close and it is heavenly and relaxing to swim a few laps, jump in the bubbling water then go show and spend some time in your room before sleeping like a baby.

I have to say with all the available stuff to do, if you look around and plan (something my wife loves to do) you can have a tremendously enjoyable two or three day trip for reasonalbe expense and reenvigorate yourselves and create fond memories of it all.

Just something to think about.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in July. We arrived late, and were given a room at the end of the hall with a view of the bay. We stayed in the newer section. The room was nicely decorated and modern, and the room was very clean. We also were given chocolate chip cookies on arrival - a nice touch after traveling for quite a long time. We had no complaints about this hotel - good central location and within easy walking distance of Venice Beach and a several restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

This is the first hotel we stayed at during our cross-California vacation and we were not disapointed.

From the get go, we found plenty of parking and we were welcome at the front desk. The room was very spacious, very comfortable and provided a lovely view of the Marina. The room is also well appointed with coffee maker, toaster, etc. The hotel pool is in perfect condition and it might have been because it was not the high season but poolside lounge chairs were readily available.

The location of the hotel is nice as you can get to Venice beach boardwalk or Santa Monica beach in a matter of minutes.

We got a very good price on this hotel considering the location.

We recommend it.

Room Tip: We did not try the bar nor restaurant.
