"Solid Spot In Venice"
Solid in great location. Try not to get a room on a lower floor though and park the car yourself. The third floor is actually closer to being a second floor level - and there are some interesting characters strolling by the alleys in Venice. So, higher the floor the better. Great helpful staff - good breakfast at on-site restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"VERY EXPENSIVE MINI BAR,VERY NOISYover parking"
my balcony and upgraded vie was over 3 parking lots,very noisy at night,didnt sleep last night there at all,staff didnt care when advised. parking is 30.00 per night here! i wouldnt stay here again unless it was 1/2 price...oh and almonds or a cany bar in your mini bar, 6.00!! each!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the money, its a poor deal. Nothing comes with this hotel..no gym..no pool.. The room service menu is very limited, super expensive and food arrived cold, yet burnt. Downstairs diner was the worst service I have ever received at a hotel. Rooftop dining was open to the public, and was standing room only...lots of drinking and partying...not a family […] friendly hotel. The only area of this hotel that excelled was the valet department, those guys rule. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great rooftop bar!"
Clean nice place and a great location to get the most of your stay at Venice beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall, the hotel was very nice. However, our room was supposed to be a King size bed in our suite. It was a Queen. Also, no free internet is a downside.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Amazing rooftop barGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Venice Location; Modestly Refurbed Hotel"
A GFI in our first hotel room started clicking. Loudly. Intermittently. In the middle of the night. My husband called the front desk to ask for suggestions to resolve the issue; they promptly sent up a bellman to move us to another room. It was significantly smaller than the one we'd booked and pre-paid, so they moved us again to a room comparable to […] our first one without argument. We were pretty pleased with that and the rest of our stay was quite pleasant. The roof top bar is a nice asset in nice weather! While decent, I'd say this hotel shares a lot in common with the Doug Fir in Portland or a couple of places in Palm Springs, where the proprietors bought an older building and refurbed quite a few things, but not all of them. It's not my favorite kind of hotel reno, but we certainly couldn't argue with the location, close to Abbott-Kinney, some awesome Venice haunts, the ocean, lots of craft beer bars and Santa Monica.

"Fun, upscale hipster hotel"
Fantastic hotel right at the beach and in the middle of everything in Venice. Like Venice, it is unusual (grafitti art outside, rock star photos in the hallways, minibar filled with half bottles of call alcohol, a stand of sunglasses that you can buy (borrow?) in your room. Get a room with an ocean view on the 6th floor (all rooms on that floor have […] balconies - worth it). The front dest people were very friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar is exceptional (food, drinks, music and a view in all directrions). Reserve a table (like VIP seating but no charge and you get priority if you stay in the hotel) in advance for the roftop bar as it gets crowded. If it is cold at night, they give out blankets for the seated guests and have heat lamps. We will stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Expecting something nicer."
The room is small and the view was to an alley full of trash. The room smelled like something had died in it. It looked like the room was worth 50 dollars a night. One slow elevator. Over night parking was 30 dollars. Not worth the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quick Biz trip"
Solid hotel, great restaurant, and beautiful views from the roof.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to friends and family and must-see sights"
We enjoyed it immensely. The location was perfect for us and the rooftop lounge was wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Funky Hotel with great staff"
This is a funky hotel on the beach in Venice. The hotel staff was absolutely excellent. The rooftop lounge is an incredible place to watch a sunset. For the uninitiated, Venice is a little seedy and carnivalesque. The partial ocean owe rooms require you to step out onto the balcony. The beds were comfortable and very clean. The funkiness of the rooms […] derives from the 70's era decor. Overall great value, clean, comfortable, convenient with awesome staff. I would stay here again.

A funky little place right on the beach. Not too quiet, but a good spirit and a great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Venice Beach Hotel"
I wanted to stay in Venice to be within walking distance to a family member. I think this is my best choice, but it takes a little time to get used to the surrounding neighborhood which looks a little seedy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"mother/daughter relaxation trip very fulfilling"
Great staff, food and comfortable room. Loved the proximity to the beach, great board walk and activities along the board walk, great restaurants and shopping. Will definitely recommend the hotel and plan to return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My only complaint is that I thought their parking charges ($33/day) were exorbitant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Power Outage but Who Cares"
So the best part was that at first appearance this place looked amazing, and this is usually where you hear the reviewer start complaining, but I have nothing bad to say about this place.... The Staff was friendly as soon as we pulled up and checked in. The room was modern, clean and comfortable. The room was very big for a hotel room and defiantly […] felt new. The only thing was that our window faced the wall of the next building, but when in Venice you aren't in your room much anyway.... The hotels location is perfect. A block off of the Pacific Ocean and right off the board walk with so many things to do and see.... Our last night there the power went out so we had to pack in the dark, but at that point we had such a good time in Venice and the stay was amazing we didn't really care at all. The next morning when we went to check out the staff informed us that we got free parking to make up for the power going out the night before..... I would defiantly recommend this so any of my friends and family as one of my family member recommended it to me! ENJOY THE STAY!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ask first or pay later!"
My Family really enjoyed the Venice Beach area of LA. The Erwin Hotel was conveniently located for our stay. We booked our entire seven days at the Erwin Hotel. When we arrived the film crew for 'Cougartown" had booked the majority of the rooms and had sole use of the High Lounge on the rooftop as well as the downstairs Barlo restaurant,so we were shut […] out from the two locations that had appealed to me in the first place,just for one night however. Our king sized bed as I described to the manager the next morning was the equivalent of two rather large pot holes with a speed bump between. I think the staff flipped the mattress.Needless to say the comfort level at night never improved.The Suite was very much to our liking otherwise. The hotel parking was a very pricey $30 per nite.We found on street parking without too much trouble after the first nights stay.Internet access is a whopping $10 per device. If you have $ to burn and don't mind a lumpy nite stay go for it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Top 4 star hotel"
Excellent experience, considering the price on Expedia and the location of the hotel. The decor is pleasing, the valet service was easy and prompt, there is food and room service available, you're steps away from the boardwalk, and the rooms have a mini bar and other little touches. There were little things that kept me from making this a 5 star. The […] coffee and coffeemaker in the room did not provide cream, sweetener or sugar. You cannot order room service coffee or breakfast before you go to sleep. The hotel is definitely understaffed (often times the valet was busy and did not pick up the phone). Also, the rooms are showing tiny signs of needing some TLC. However, the rooms are clean and lovely, the staff is friendly, and for the Expedia price, it is definitely worth it. I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Just ok, nothing special. The room had a slight smell. Decor was trendy, beds and bedding were comfortable. Parking was $33.00, a little overpriced. As I said just ok, nothing special. But if you want to see Venice beach probably your best choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a very nice room with an ocean view---not a great view but okay. The room was light and airy and relaxing. I want to go back! The on-site restaurant, Barlo, was fantastic!! The staff was awesome. The only bad part was the parking -- low low scores for parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
annoying problems with wifi. Everything else is perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Awesome Hotel, Loved the room and glass balcony!"
The stay here was awesome. The staff was extremely friendly and the hotel was very modern, up to date and classy. I would definitely stay there again next time i am in the VEnice Beach Area!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ONLY OPTION IN VENICE BEACH"
Its a small boutique hotel but its the best and I think only option with a decent price. There is not much to do in the area besides walking on the beachwalk and people watch. If you have a choice, stay in Santa Monica Beach or Hollywood BeachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location right by the boardwalk"
Great deal! The room was big, and the balcony was great. Love the boutique style and renovation, can't believe this use to be a best western! The people were nice and accommodating. The best part is the downstairs restaurant, Barlo best restaurant in all of venice. The potato Benedict and the bacon caramel popcorn is a must if you stay at the hotel […] .

This is a totally standard Joie De Vivre property. Comfortable room, beautiful view of the Pacific. Quiet property.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exceeded my expectations"
I booked a partial ocean view room and was surprised by how quiet a room on the top floor of the hotel could be. The rooftop bar was closed because of rain. Room service was great both food-wise and service-wise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable bed, great sheets and towels, clean room. Only drawback is rooms on the north side overlook an alley... Well located and great staffGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay and enjoy, but with caution."
Think the capital investment in the rooms was a little on the cheap and will tell in the long run . Barlow food is great as is service staff. Depending on your neighbors you could be in for a long night. Don't plan on exercising ....... You'd feel like your being punished.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun and cool beachfront hotel"
Great and fun boutique hotel with a very cool rooftop bar on the 6th floor with great drinks and outstanding views of the Pacific and the entire City of Fallen Angel(e)s. Great beds as well.Genuine Expedia guest review

As a family we really appreciated the spacious suite and that Venice offers so much within walking distance. The service was great and all employees super friendly. This was one of our best hotel experiences we ever had.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location near the beach"
Big rooms. Fun decor although a bit tired and gloomy. Feels a bit like a communist era building with bright plastics attempting to cheer things up. Noisy neighbourhood so didn't sleep well. Trash collections at dawn as well as nearby bars cleaning up. Fun looking rooftop bar which we didn't use. Brilliant wacky location but take good earplugs. Lovely […] staff.

"Awesome hotel to stay at!!!:)"
The whole experience with this hotel was amazing. Aaron was the best concierge I have ever met. We were able to check in early and had a room upgrade in our convenience thanks to him. He was able to give some direction in where we should visit including maps as well. The hotel was awesome too. It was real nice and was kept up to date. The room was really […] cool too. Everything in the room was clean. The bed was super comfortable I wanted to stay in bed but kept reminding myself I was on vacation. The valet was $30/ day but we chose to park across the street for $20/day and we kept our keys. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend this hotel to all my family and friends. Please promote Aaron to management! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great boutique hotel with a great location!!"
Everyone and everything was fantastic!! From the front desk, to valet, to the managers at Barlow and of course the Rooftop Lounge. The spiked cocoa was amazing as well. It is a perfect location and everything is in walking distance as far as dining and shopping. We stayed in an Ocean View King room and the view was amazing. I highly recommend this hotel […] for a weekend getaway!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Amazing as always"

"What I loved most, was close to beach."
Everything was great! The staff were all very professional and polite. Lizette was extremely helpful booking me an extra night.

I loved the fact that the hotel was just steps away from the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great place to stay"
My sister and I stayed at Hotel Erwin in Venice Beach recently while attending a wedding. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were comfortable. The food was amazing. We had room service several times, and we were impressed. Our room had a balcony. Although it was small, it had a great view of the ocean. The staff was friendly. They also have a great […] roof top bar which was a lot of fun. I would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for friends and couples"
I stayed one night by myself after traveling to both Getty museums after a work conference on the previous days. I felt a little old (I'm 32, married, and kids), it's definitely a young hipster type place, but nice. Good design and clean. Great location to Venice Beach, I arrived just in time to explore the beach and it's people at sunset, back at the […] hotel by dusk. It would be great for a friends or couples trip. The valet parking was nice and they locked my rental car up so it was safe, BUT it was an additional $30. I felt the hotel was kind of expensive, but clean, and I'll pay for that! The roof top "High" bar is really amazing, especially at dusk. A fun, hip place and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay 10 blocks north in Santa Monica."
Venice Beach is not the place to be. Squalor, filth, homeless, foul language dominate the place. A short distance to the north in SM Beach things are much more pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
