comfortable bed, friendly staff bed had a "white stain" and was very musty. woken up at 2am to someone getting assaulted next-door. you can literally hear your neighborhoors cough or sneeze.
store/fwy acess No drinks in vending machine
Excellent Not a off parking
-Very good value for an LA motel -Staff very responsive and kind -Gated + security cameras on-site -facilities (bed, fridge, shower, drawers) adequate -Room was way too hot, poor ventilation. -Loud noises during the night, including 1 night of a couple arguing + 1 night of loud gunshot noises -Local area very poor, many shops are protected by metal bars; hotel booth protected by bullet-proof glass
Price was decent and secure parking. Had direct TV and internet, good for a short stay. AC and heating works great. You get a frig, microwave and a box tv. Bedding had an off scent and felt a little cough after the night. The walls arn't well insulated so you can hear your neighbor watch TV. Mine neighbor went to bed at a good time so I was able to get sleep.
Staff was great and very helpful with getting me into my room. You have all the essentials in your room. The area is a very sketchy part of Los Angeles area. I wish I would have done more research in where I was staying
The room seemed clean (I'm also a germ-o-phobe so I clean everything anyway, 5 start hotel or not) & spacious for someone who just wanted somewhere to stay - without interest in amenities. I drove so proximity amenities or food within walking distance wasn't important. I had a room on the ground floor with no other rooms above. As for it being a bad neighborhood, it's no West Hollywood, but for someone who left early and was in before dark, I didn't hear or see anything bad. The parking lot was really small and took some maneuvering in to spaces but that being said, I didn't have a problem finding a spot close to my room. The walls are paper thin, I could hear the phone vibrating for the person in the next room & when they talked on the phone. Obviously this is a design flaw that can't be changed but if you're a light sleeper you might have a problem, I had none.
Great location, very new, and very nice staff! Perfect place in Venice.
It was close and convenient to my son who lives in Venice. Stayed there in Dec. in the newer rooms on the top floor which was much nicer than the room I had this time. Also, I think the 6th. floor room was about the same price as the room where I was this time.(5th floor) Yes, I opened the sliding door during the night for some fresh air. It was difficult to sleep because of the noise(homeless sleeping in the alley) that my room overlooked.
We stayed here with a couple friends for a birthday weekend celebration. Jesenia was really nice and calles us when we were able to check in early. The rooms were great. My cousin checked in early but didn't get the king bed she booked. So later she called Jeff and was able to get a better room. A suite! The rooftop lounge during the day was great. The bartenders was nice. At nighttime, the waitress we had was btichy. The lounge areas were nice but even for hotel fuests we had to reserve on opentable.com. the problem was we had a big group. They provide blankets so thats a plus but we didn't stay up there long. Lastly, Valet/parking was $32!
The hotel is realy gret. Great staff, wonderful instalations..... So I really could live there. The price and the cost to park, once the garage is inside the building of the hotel.
Was given great upgrade; rooftop is fantastic Absolutely everything was great!
The tiny sign on the door entrance in the corner.. Stating that there were chemicals in the building from which you could get cancer from.. Was not clear when I book the hotel that the building is a health risk.
Hotel Erwin is perfectly located on Venice beach, the staff is excellent, restaurant serves excellent breakfasts, nothing to complain about.
the suite was awesome! The rooftop bar was great. Blankets were clutch. Friendly staff!
We were planning to have our short, informal ceremony on the beach and then enjoy the rooftop; but, our view was so amazing, we had our ceremony right on our patio deck! Also, when I mentioned to Billy that we were getting married that day, he sent a bottle of champagne to our room! Unbelievable guest service! We will recommend the Erwin to friends & family.
The closeness to the beach and water and how close we were to Venice beach all the interesting people and places we saw was just amazing can't wait to come again The only thing I didn't really like was the view from our room
Miguel was fabulous and helped us in many ways, he went above and beyond. The entire staff was friendly and helpful The music on the roof did keep us up, and the ear plugs cost money
We loved the new and greatly designed rooms, as well as the young atmosphere of the hotel. The rooftop bar will take off - it is a great place. We will be back! The staff needs some more time together to make everything run smoothly. But they were always very nice and friendly - thanks for a great time with you!
Vibrant lounge with a nice view of the marina. $30 valet only parking option!! Weird odor in the room
The remodel is first class. The front desk service was fine. The dining was terrible. Slow inattentive service, overdone steak, raw salmon, overpriced.
Ambiance was great from the beachy/sea vibe in the lobby with the "flying" seagull sculptures hanging from the ceiling a wonderful scent machine in the lobby that makes you feel like you are at the beach. Very romantic setting at the outside bar complete with couches and fire pits. Beds were super comfortable. $30/day for valet parking is a bit steep when there is plenty of parking around the hotel. Give an option for people to park their own cars, even if you have to charge a fee.
We loved the view, facilities, great beds and location of the hotel. No complaints.
My husband and I had a fabulous stay at the Marina del Rey Hotel. Our room had a amazing view of the marina, was very well appointed and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to that part of LA.
Hotel staff was outstanding; from valet, front desk & concierge all the way through to pool attendants, room service and bell desk.
Marina Totality , needs upgraded , bathrooms , amenities , need more restaurants .
I can't begin to find words to express how much we enjoyed our stay at the Marina del Rey Ritz Carlton! We arrived on a Wednesday morning with a sick child. The staff immediately took charge helping to get us situated with a room and going so far above and beyond ensuring that our stay was enjoyable. From the person who greeted us to take our luggage, to the valet, to the front desk staff to the wait staff in the restaurant and the gift shop (which opened up for us to get us meds in the middle of the night) to the manager who followed up even after we had left their hotel, every layer was kind, attentive and fantastic! They honestly made us feel like we were at home with family who was concerned about us. What a fantastic experience! T
the location room service food. the french soup was disgusting. There was also no glasses in the room. time it took to get the food valet parking took 15 mins to get our car
I like the avalibiliy of the staff For a younger crowd in there 25-30 age it's not an appeasing hotel it's more for older crowd like 50-60 so for me being a pro Olympic athlete and being 23 yrs old I didn't enjoy it that much
I liked that the hotel was near the water, close to a concert I was attending. I booked this hotel because they had balconies and it was near the water. The balcony was closed due to renovations. The bath tub was small , hotel was a little outdated. Not as special as a experience as I was hoping for
Staff is great, and generally a very nice hotel. Doesn't live up to our expectations based on previous experiences at other Ritz hotels. It feels tired, not as luxurious as others, and is starting to show some age without upkeep. A simple example would be the pool has cracked tiles and feels rundown.
Nice place, but not worth the Ritz premium. I would stay at the JW Marriott in Santa Monica next time I'm in the area.
The service and staff were great - hotel is very nice!
Service Rooms not ready for check in
The lobby, close location to Venice beach and the bar were quite nice. Staff is accommodating and nice. Rooms and interiors of the halls were old, carpet is definitely old, and the lounge for elite members is tiny (cramped seating). Really small outdoor pool.
Room was nice and clean Parking for $37, valet only was a rip-off!
Parking fee not included in stay
Vi var godt tilfreds med hotellet, kun ca 10 km fra LAX, men beliggende lige ud til stranden, helt roligt. Vaerelset var rent, lidt primitivt og morgenmaden var ikke noget at raabe hurra for, men alt i alt kommer vi gerne tilbage til den pris. Efter en lang flyvetur, var det herligt med en spadseretur paa stranden og sove i rolige omgivelser.
it was kind of cozy. The bed was comfy and it had more then two pillows. There were plenty of towels... The place had a very bad odor to it when I went in. The floor by the bathroom was soaking wet.
price was good although they charge another $2 to use a credit or debit card. Bath towels were old and dingy, of the four available power outlets only one worked and I had 3 things to plug in, check-in office is poorly marked and difficult to find, decor is tacky and atrocious
Close to los angeles Light lol
Nothing Non smoking room smells cigarette. Dirty, dirty, dirty!!!
I've stayed here before for a few days - great location and generally a very good place to stay. However the room was a bit musty when I entered - not enough for me to want a new oom but noticeable. Facilities are OK - bathroom very cosy though. Would definetly stay again.
Location was interesting; good restaurants nearby; kinda edgy. Weirdly, my hair loved whatever shampoo & conditioner they used (could also be the quality of the water itself?). I never had such silky smooth hair! The facilities reminded me of a motel in the 70's. They tried to be trendy and hip, but it just didn't cut it. The room didn't feel private. The balcony overlooked the courtyard one floor below and there was a really bright light at night, so I didn't feel comfortable opening the curtains to let any light in. The bathtub had a no-slip matt inside, so it felt like a retirement home. Although relatively clean, the smell of the cleaning products was really old-school. Only thing missing was the coin-operated vibrating bed. No restaurant or room service, and breakfast in the morning was very basic.
My daughter and l had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Our room was very clean and beds where comfortable. The location is a short walk to the beach. The staff was friendly, professional and attentive! We were so happy with our accommodations that we extended our stay by two days. Highly recommend !
Charming, great location, interesting architecture, right amount of funk, very helpful staff, good breakfast. door knobs were a problem, but it is a real problem for an old house where you are trying to keep it authentic. Half the rooms have a shared bath—not a problem, but good to know about.
Comfortable and homey!
Clean room and convenient location. Nice common areas. Mostly friendly and helpful staff. The best price for the overpriced area. This location has under gone a half hearted renovation. The price doesn't match the quality. The layout of the property is odd and there are no rooms with good views. Some of the furniture is banged up. The water temperature is difficult to control in the sinks. Sewer gas smells would come from the bathroom drains at night. Lower levels can hear movement from upper levels.
Good location and staff was very accommodating.
Beautiful room, great location, friendly staff. Would definitely recommend. Parking was inconvenient.
Venice is what it is too many bums but venice breeze suites are very clean and nice and rooftop is great
Kitchen Too loud. Young people manage the place and don't care. Elevators broken!!! Can't go outside the hotel, too many homeless people around the outside of hotel.Never again!
If you're looking for Venice Beach, the location is perfect. Unfortunately, the place as a whole is a little worse for wear, especially at $220/night. Reception feels more like a $40/night hostel than a hotel, bedding and couch both looked not entirely clean and there was mold and mildew all over the bathroom floor and walls.
