I felt the price was too high, but it seemed to be the going rate. Transient crowd outside might spook some people, and being close to Venice Beach, I'm sure there's been bad scenes with rowdy guests. We saw a lot of young folks traveling...More

We stopped in at the motel on a weekday evening and were not only bluntly lied to by the attendant about the rate of the hotel but he also pocketed about 15$.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local 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
happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
