Motel 6 Venice
Ranked #12 of 13 Hotels in Venice
Reviewed 1 March 2010

Stayed here for a week after checking out of a beachfront area motel that was a total dump (that cost $150 per night!). The desk staff is very friendly and helpful--offered to call when our room was ready when we checked in a bit early. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable--the motel seemed to be fairly recently updated. Everything worked well--hot water, drains, 19 inch TV, internet, etc. The beds were comfortable. This motel has nice landscaping (palm trees, flowering shrubs, etc.) and the court yard pool area is nicely landscaped as well with palms, flowering shrubs, etc . The pool is heated. About 40 rooms face the pool on the courtyard; the other rooms face the parking lots (which have landscaping). No problems with noise from the road or the pool area in the courtyard room. The hotel is in a good location, only about a half mile from downtown Venice, and you can walk or ride your bike from the hotel over the drawbridge to downtown--the beach is another half mile down Venice Ave. from the downtown. Many restaurants are within a couple of miles--can choose from any type of fast food or gourmet restaurant. Most of the guests seemed to be retired people staying longer than one night, so this was not a high energy, partying crowd. If you've stayed in a Motel Six, you know that you won't get a clock, luxurious towels, or any other frills. Stay for a week or longer and the rate is $45 per night. Some rooms have a fridge and microwave. The motel has wi-fi, but the cost is $3 per day (many area restaurants have free wi-fi). There is also a coin laundry for guests. This property offers the budget traveler a nice room, good location, and quality that is better than most other motels in the area. I would stay here again.

Okay for a short stay at cheap price. Many other places to stay but twice the price. No alarm clocks. Very rough bath towels. Mattresses not very thick. Rooms smelled musty. 19" TV. I only stayed one night. Very close to shopping. 10 minutes from beach. Pleasant staff.

After reading some of the reviews, I was worried about booking this motel, but thankfully as we pulled into the parking lot, there was a big sign reading “Totally Remodeled”, and as far as we could tell it was. Our room had new bedding, new furniture, new rug and a clean, new bathroom. We liked this motel for the location to the beaches and the price. The pool was nice, the A/C worked and the staff was friendly, albeit slow to check us in. There are also restaurants, grocery and department stores close by. My only complaint was how loud the noise from the highway was in our room, so I recommend asking for a room in the back, by the pool. Nevertheless, we would stay here again, if we come back to Venice.

We came into Venice super late one night so had to settle for this Motel 6. It looked OK when we first got there but when we pulled back the covers we discovered there was mold on our pillows and pillow cases. Thank goodness we brought our own pillows. There were also two baby spiders in my bed and I found one in my kids bed. When we took off our shoes we discovered that the carpet was wet. There was also mold growing on the chair at the desk. They certainly have a humidity issue there.

OH MY GOD!!!! STAY away! This is the worst hotel i have ever seen. We had to stay there while our home was being worked on, and the staff is very rude and acted as if we were bothering them when we had a question. Every night there were room partys that were so loud that we could not sleep. The room above us keep jumpin off the beds onto the floor and causing dust to fall on our bed, when we told ths staff they just said they would see if they could hear them. lol what does that mean exactly? they never did anything about it. The AC would only work for 15 min then freeze up for hours. The phone would dial random numbers and we never got that fixed either. The room had the worst smell that would gag anyone, also smelled like smoke "non smoking room" that we could not mask over. The carpet hadn't been vacumed in years. The sheets smelled foul! and the shower was a joke. no water pressure, it basically dripped out. The bathroom smelled of urine. There were people making noise in the pool all hours of the night and day. You can also hear every little noise outside of your room. We would never stay here again in our whole life regardless of the reason.
