Had a great stay in Venice Beach at the Kinney. Juliana Ruiz definitely made our stay so great due to her genuine and caring attitude and extra service she provided to us during our honeymoon and family trip for the holidays. Thank you for the kindness, Julian and Happy Holidays - we will be back just because of YOU but we also enjoyed the accommodations, comfy beds, feel of property, cleanliness and security of the inn too. Jim and Euridice.

I can't say I loved this hotel. The pictures are definitely more beautiful than the reality. I would say the room was very large, but it was a lot of empty space and not well lit at all. The wallpaper was peeling in the room. They put in some very trendy furniture, but it was obviously a very old building with a face-lift. The location was not fantastic for my purposes. The hotel had some really nice common spaces, though, and I guess I booked it because it was relatively inexpensive, so it might be good if you are traveling with a group in multiple rooms. It was also pretty accessible to the airport, which is another reason we picked it. I probably wouldn't stay again and would spring for a place closer to the beach, or just stay in an actual airport hotel instead of trying to compromise. Oh, staff was also very friendly and despite being somewhat shabby, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable.
