Seems that this review is more directed to Venice rather than Samesun Venice. Glad to hear that you had a pleasant interaction with our staff, albeit brief. Venice Beach is a unique community that embraces arts, culture and is quite eclectic. Like most metropolitan cities...More

craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

Yes, both a mini fridge & TV. If you book a private room with a shared bathroom they still have the fridge & TV along with a personal sink & mirror in the room.
