Reviewed 2 July 2015 via mobile

This hotel is well located with respect to LAX and one mile from a nice beach.

Garage has good capacity even if at times double row parking is needed.
Some short term parkings on the road very handy x short stops and load/ unloading.

Rooms spacious and a/c working ok.

Unfortunately had a street room (avoid that) and noise from street was rather loud due to old windows. According to hotel personnel that problem will be soon resolved via already planned renovation.

Breakfast room indeed the weak spot of this hotel, too small and making the food selection and breakfast consumption a bit uncomfortable if crowded.

Also the pool rather compact, but such a nice beach did not really make it too needed.

Safe boxes at main desk only.

For the rest, personnel friendly and service oriented.

Overall a good base for vacations in Marina del Rey / Venice beach area in terms of $ to value.

Stayed: July 2015, travelled with family

Stayed here as a party of 7 (across 4 rooms).

Room was basic but very large, somewhat noisy as the front door overlooked the pool area (very small but people seemed to be enjoying it). We slept well, though, and the place was clean with good wifi throughout.

Breakfast was fab and all staff were helpful. Location about 20 min walk from Venice Beach- fine for one night but wouldn't stay much longer.

Excellent customer service at the front desk by Ivan. Very accommodating for my business travel. Included breakfast was good. Great restaurant recommendations. Quick walk to the beach with shopping along the way.

I had a wonderful stay at the Inn at Marina del Rey. The location is great you can walk to Venice beach and unique shopping on Abbott Kinney blvd. There is a Thai and Italian restaurant a block away along with a popular weekend brunch spot . Enterprise car rental is 2 blocks away(I walked in 9 min)The room was spacious and clean and the bed was so comfortable. The staff were super friendly and not in a way that was phony like they were being made to say hello. Ivan at the front desk gave me some great recommendations for dinner and night life. This is my new favorite hotel for travel to Venice beach . Thanks every one for making me feel so welcome.

The hotel is fine. It's clean and the staff were friendly. In my opinion it could do with a style update. I think we demand more from hotels in cities like LA, these days. I want to feel inspired or, at least, pleasantly surprised, when I travel.
