"Great beachfront hotel & staff"
6th fl ocean view room. Great way to wake up, start the day & have coffee on balcony. Staff couldn't be any friendlier & helpful (Sarah, Eugene & Joe). Can't wait to come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendliest staff ever, great upgrades, location!"
got in late first night, hotel was booked, got a free upgrade to a suite. when I had to change rooms for the next night ( which made sense to me as I booked the lowest room/rate) I still got an upgrade for the standard room so I will not feel too bad. this was all great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, good hotel"
Chose Hotel Erwin for its location and that did not disappoint. It's right on Venice Beach and in the "eclectic" area that's great for walking around and people-watching. Good for surfer watching, too, and right by Muscle Beach. Tons of people out and about. It's a really fun area. The hotel is nice but nothing out of the ordinary. I didn't like the […] glass (frosted) sliding bathroom door. Not as much privacy as I would have liked. Also, kind of loud with music at nearby bars but it stopped at 11pm before bed (for me). Great, great rooftop bar/lounge area. They serve good food up there, too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have been coming to the Venice Beach area for more than 10 years now for weekend getaways. This is the first time I have stayed at the Erwin, however, I have stayed here when it was the Best Western. The Erwin has transformed this property into a pretty high end hotel. All the rooms have been remodeled (or in the process of). I like what they have […] done with the 6th floor balconies (the lower floors have a balcony but they are very very narrow. I also liked the Roof Top Bar area. The only thing I found a litle odd is that they have a skylight structure running down the center of it that makes it hard to move around and takes away a lot of good space. It is not that attractive either. Overall a good place to stay...has easy access to the Venice boardwalk area and is very centrally located. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved it! Location is perfect....close to the action. Staff was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Roof Top Bar AMAZING"
We picked this place because it was close to the beach and appeared to be a little funky. We picked the right place. The staff was friendly, the room clean, and the bar on the roof had a great view. We will stay there again if we go to Venice Beach!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The place is a dive. Bad HOOD."
The hotel charges for parking your car $35.00 per day. Not disclosed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very hip hotel"
Friend and I stayed for two nights. Perfect time. Great rooftop bar. Great location!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Near the beach"
I enjoyed it, but the room was a little roughGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very centrally located if you are looking to be in the heart of Venice. The rooftop bar is amazing, the sunsets are beautiful, and if a bit chilly blankets and heating are provided.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent access to Venice Beach"
We found the Hotel Erwin to be in an excellent location for what we wanted. A personal friend lives in the area so we were able to spend time with them, grab dinner in a nice sushi joint (walking distance from the hotel), and enjoy drinks on the roof top following dinner. The staff was extremely friendly and even allowed us to leave our car for a few […] hours after checkout to explore the boardwalk. One downside for me was that we were with the family and the bathroom was not very private. Additionally, the beds were not the most comfortable (6 of 10). I would definitely stay here again due to the friendly staff and great location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great weekend getaway!!"
We had a wonderful time! This hotel is close to everything and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will be back for sure!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bait & Switch, NOT handicapped friendly"
Will charge you double if you're not paying attention. Massive construction project underway on south side of hotel - obstruction of partial ocean view rooms and noisy throughout day. Greeted by a horribly rude member of the staff who charged us double because he insisted our pre-paid Expedia booking didn't include the hotel. We paid extra to book a […] room with a full ocean view because I am physically disabled and wasn't sure if I'd feel up to walking to the beach. He downgraded our room to a partial ocean view, and said "That's all the ocean view you're going to get. Maybe next time". This hotel may be handicapped accessible, but they most definitely NOT "handicapped friendly". He implied that the Expedia rate was so unspeakably low he couldn't say it out loud, and we didn't deserve anything better than what he was generously giving us. When we complained to Expedia, the hotel booking manager was forced to refund the second booking charge (not yet refunded 3 days later). She apologize repeatedly and comped our valet fees of $32. They promise free internet service, but it's a 2x2 free that freezes up immediately and doesn't work at all. They take every opportunity to bait and switch guests to charge for basic hotel services. The room was clean, but nothing extraordinary. The maid staff walked into the room two hours before check-out time to start cleaning. The only pleasant thing about this hotel was the valet staff, and the time we spent away from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
If I want to see the best sunset in la , u need to be on the rooftop bar!!!! It is beautiful, staff is great, and it is in the hub of Venice beach!!! Going back as soon as I can!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hope I can return one day"
I booked this for a friends birthday and loved the location if being right on the beach. The staff was more than accommodating and very pleasant even after we checked out. I used another car service until I was informed of the hotel car service a flat rate not based on traffic, they were amazing and very prompt! This is a place I could see myself coming […] back to Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Probably the nicest hotel on the beach."
Staff was accommodating. Hotel didn't provide an available directory of services or orientation guide.location. There were two of us yet we were only provided one wash cloth, one deck chair and a little more than a half roll of toilet tissue. At $250 a night a quest should not have to ask for these items. They need to pay attention to detail.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was "ocean view" our original room overlooked a parking lot more than the ocean. We were moved to a location closer to the ocean offering a much better view. Rooftop lounge was very nice! Valet parking was convenient but $$$$.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel, but avoid rooms by the bar stairwell"
I had a nice room, and the customer service was great. Unfortunately I had a room that was really close to the stairwell for the rooftop bar so I heard people going up and down the stairs until midnight. If you are up that late then you won't have any issues at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The food was amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
After searching for the best value of local getaways near the beach, I found Hotel Erwin and was blown away by every facet of their operation. I live in L.A. and was seeking a romantic getaway so I could propose to my girlfriend. The day before check in, I called Hotel Erwin and they offered to send up champagne at no charge and to allow anyone else […] entry into the room to do it up nicely. I was pleasantly surprised to see they had upgraded my room just because they are amazing. Inside, the rooms are huge for Venice and creatively designed and decorated. The bed is very comfortable and the shower/bathroom is creatively arranged to fit a lot into a tight space without feeling cramped. The rooftop bar is amazing and offers wonderful views of the beach/Venice at night and, if it doesn't suit your fancy, you can wonder to any one of the dozen restaurant/bars in walking distance. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"New ownership means less perks and rude staff"
I stayed here because it was a joie de vie hotel. But it changed hands this year. From rude staff at the check-in to no hot water for my shower 2 days in a row, it was the worst hotel stay of the year. The manager gave me a night off my bill and apologized profusely when I checked out, but it was too late. This hotel is off my stay list.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very clean. Great locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
$35 a day to park is a joke. I spent over $300 a night park my carGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"C- at best!"
Eeh, location is nice but accommodations are lacking. We were put in a subterranean dwelling that was a ADA room . Our patio lacking any type of furnishings was actually below grade, and a view of a chain link fence. Arrg!, really? Supposed to have a king suite, which i guess it was. "A King in a cage":):) Staff has a arrogance of course, but your in […] LA what do you want? Pool has nice view, area surrounding is great, easy access to everything Hollywood.

"Nice get a way."
Stayed here just one night while in the area. Was upgraded to a suite which was large. Was surprised to find it so quiet being next to the beach and all the night life. The bed was very comfortable. Ate at the hotel restaurant and had the best steak I have ever had anywhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Service was spectacular!"
Leah from the front desk was incredibly helpful! I will be coming back in the very near future! Overall a great experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not worth the sunset"
I reserved the room a week in advance and made rooftop reservations. When I arrived we were not able to check in until an hour after check in. No soap or towels in the room. Rooftop reservations? Not on file. The hostess was kind of rude about the matter and didn't try to accommodate anything. on top of that the standing rooftop is free and she gave […] all my friends a hard time asking for Id even though it was already shown to security. Not to mention the one elevator available is a 10-minute wait minimum. They totally ruined my birthday party. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Erwin is great--friendly staff, great location near the beach, and beautiful rooms. I was upgraded for free to a top-floor room with a balcony and view of the ocean. The downstairs restaurant, Barlo, is truly exceptional--not just for a hotel restaurant, but for any restaurant. Loved the food and the overall relaxed vibe of the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel and Venice beach location!"
I love this hotel and their staff! Everyone is so helpful and hotel is fantastic. There is an amazing roof top patio that is a great spot to watch the sunset. This is also a cool/ hip locals hang out..... great see and scene place. Most rooms have amazing ocean views. Also, the restaurant serves great food and has a great wine and beer list.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great beach spot"
Great location right on Venice Beach, which is beautiful, and an easy walk to Abbot Kinney where all of the cute/hip restaurants and shops are. Our room was bright and pretty clean, and the beds were comfortable. Front desk staff was very friendly and eager to be helpful / make recommendations, and the valet guys were quick in getting our car each time. […] We grabbed dinner outside at Barlo (the restaurant in the hotel) one night and the food was really good. There were two computers and a printer on the ground floor which was convenient, although there is a fee to print. Only downsides: Overnight parking is stiff at ~ $35/night (with taxes); the boardwalk and surrounding streets get a bit sketchy at night; there was an unpleasant smell coming from our toilet tank (if only our room smelled like the lobby, which smells wonderful!); rooms with a partial ocean view that face Windward Ct (on the north side) immediately overlook a less-than-scenic sidestreet, although we could look left and see the beach. If I had a do-over, I'd request an oceanview room or a south-facing room over 17th St. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed here with our 2 year old son and had a blast. The vicinity to the beach and skate park is a definite plus. The lack of hotel pool was a con. The hotel and the venice beach area have a definite vibe that was way more out style than say 3 miles north. I'm so happy with the choice to stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Location on Venice Beach"
This was a great place to stay if you like to spend your time at the beach or at any of the near-by bars and restaurants in Venice. It's even just a short walk over to Santa Monica. We had a few issues with the first room we were put in, but they were quickly and satisfactorily addressed. Actually, they even put us in a slightly nicer (upgraded) room […] so they could take care of the problems with our first room. We enjoyed our entire stay and much of the thanks for that goes to the FANTASTIC service that the employees of this hotel provide. GOOD JOB GUYS! And thanks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"NO MORE SPACE"
1. I HATE IT THE PARKING , WE HAD TO WAIT A LONG WHILE FOR SOMEONE TO PARK OUR CAR WAS REALLY ANNOYING. 2. WE ALSO WERE WAITING FOR THE ELAVATOR TO COME DOWN WAS A PAIN IN THE BUTT IT TOOK FOREVER TO TAKE THE ELEVATOR. BUT OTHER THAN THE IT WAS OKGenuine Expedia guest review
Great Hotel - Put a couch or comfortable chairs in, instead of the desk. Could use a little more privacy with regard to the bathroom doors too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Art of Erwinning!"
My GF and I did a romantic getaway at Hotel Erwin over Labor Day weekend. The staff provided excellent low-friction service. The hotel is hip and well done for a remodeled Best Western. I''m learning the word "boutique" means .. previously run down hotel that has been remodeled to cater to be "cool." At this ... Erwin excels. The roof top lounge is […] a major highlight. PS: you get preference in seating if you are a hotel guest. The hostess staff there gave us the best service of the entire trip (give the girl with the short bleach blond hair a raise! She rocks at customer service!). The only neg is that it's a little over-priced for what you get (and our shower had serious drain issues). But compared to the other options in the area ... it's a win. Comfortable beds. Quiet room. Great staff. Excellent location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
""The only place to rest your feet""
An absolutely great place to stay in Venice beach with all the trappings are around the Hotel!!! .Has a great roof top bar to catch the sunset or watch the planes bank up in the air before landing at LAX. Not forgetting an amassing place for people watching down below etcGenuine Expedia guest review
I needed to get out of the valley for a weekend and this was the perfect solution! I felt like a princess for a day in your beautiful and comfortable surroundings. I will definitely be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"One of the nice hotel on Venice Beach."
The room with Ocean view is the one you need to choose if you are going to stay there for nicer experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tallest Hotel in Venice Beach Area"
Wish the balcony was bigger. Could still see the ocean. It is the tallest building in the area of Venice beach. Has a nice lounge on the open roof in the evening time. Is a great place to have a wonderful view to take pictures. Literally 2 mins from beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved it - front desk and door staff were terrific and very helpful. Great location for walks on beach and boardwalk. Eclectic guests made people watching marvelous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel's great, parking's expensive"
It's not addressed on Expedia but to park at the hotel you have to use their valet parking service which is $35/day. You can try your luck with a nearby street that was full every time I looked or consider the lots surrounding the hotel and beach ($10-$20), but I don't know if they let you park overnight. Other than that the hotel was fantastic and […] the bar/lounge on top has a great view of the area, and it's right next to 3 other bars. I would definitely recommend staying here - just let us park in the garage, Erwin! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We enjoyed our stay"
This is the first time we've been to Venice and the hotel location, staff and rooftop lounge were just a few of the things we enjoyed about our stay. Its a great value and we'd definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
