"Fun and interesting weekend"
Loved the hotel and it's staff. The neighborhood is not, in my opinion, family friendly. But good and interesting experience overall. Fun fact, the hotel offers free passes to the Gold Gym in Venice (the mecca of bodybuilding), so we went to check it out Sunday morning. Who do we run into? a bunch of familiar faces (as in that actor that you have seen somewhere but can't really place him) and yes, the one and only, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Just there, working out like everybody else. Nicest guy. The beach is beautiful and local restaurants seem fine, but there are too many homeless people (minding their own business, I must say) in the area.

"It was a nice hotel and we enjoyed the stay."
We really didn't get a chance to enjoy it much as we didn't arrive to our room until 11:30pm and pretty much went straight to bed. It's an old building that's been renovated. It was clean and pleasant for the one night we stayed there. I thought it was a bit overpriced though. No complaints.

"Nice Hotel"
The room was fine, the $32 for parking per day was a bit high. I like the front desk staff a lot and the rooftop bar was nice. However the menu only offered appetizers which would have been fine but it took forever to get them as the staff kept taking the food to the wrong tables??? And the quality was only fair.I would go back to the bar but would only order drinks.

"So hip it hurts, but that's just the price. Hipify"
Cronuts, bacon caramel, pork belly, fried rabbit and designer cocktails in BarLo. $48 plastic sunglasses in the countertop gotcha-minibar. Hipness with assorted international accents dripping all over your unhipness at the rooftop HIGH bar. This place is so cool that you are not. Great friendly staff, beautiful decorated rooms, great 80s/90s mix tape music playing everywhere. Pay for your privilege and join the young and beautiful Venice Beach crowd. Look hard to the right or left from your room's hip steel and glass balcony and you can see the hip view of the ocean (we were very lucky to be on the sixth floor). Elevator broke while we were there, and groups of twenty somethings singing drunken songs as they went up and down the stairwell prevailed throughout the hip early hours of the morning. Lots of money for a smallish hip room, but it's hip! Amazing view from the rooftop bar which disappointingly is not open for breakfast - would have been the perfect place for a Doughssant with Bacon Caramel covered with whipped hip cream and drizzled with hip chocolate. R U young, hip and ready to play?

"Totally hip hotel"
Definitely not for the old folks, although I'm 52 and loved the place... We checked in about 7pm on a Saturday and the line was out the door for the Rooftop Bar. What an amazing place to hang out! Of course the view was spectacular, but to see that the tables and bar areas were kept very clean and the style was trendy made it a perfect place to hang out for a while. High energy, younger crowd and dress code was typical evening-out-to-party-but-I-still-want-to-be-comfy style. Didn't really see anybody dressed like slobs which was what I kind of expected at a beach hotel bar. The rooms were retro 60's/70's style and everything was in great condition and very clean. The beds were so comfortable - the comforters were NOT those old fashioned polyester quilt like bedspreads you see in most hotels. They had the softest white cotton comforters I've ever felt. Reminded me of the St. Regis in Dana Point. And you get two pillows each - one firm and the other soft; nice to have a choice. And finally a hotel bathroom that has a working fan with vent! The only downside, and not really that big of a deal, was that the bathroom door was a sliding door and there was a gap about an inch wide away from the wall so if you walked past the closed door you could see the person inside through the crack - but only if you intentionally looked. The staff was so positive and helpful! The older gentleman that worked the front desk answered every question we had and gave us plenty of tips regarding the bar, restaurant reservations, etc. Parking was confusing at first so hope this tip helps: use the hotel parking! You have to valet, it's $35 but so worth knowing your car is safe. Plus, we had to check out at noon but they let us keep the car there while we walked around Venice Beach and ate lunch. They even put our bags in the car for us! Street parking is not really an option if you're there for a weekend stay - none to be found anywhere close by. And do NOT opt for the public parking lot that's

"Located in the Heart of Venice Beach"
Hotel Erwin is located very near the beach in Venice Beach. Venice Beach is a little sketchy and I prefer the Santa Monica area over this area, but the hotel was in walking distance of where I needed to be. The rooftop bar has an amazing view and you must have at least one sunset drink there. The pancakes for breakfast are amazing!!

This place is top notch and honestly the best place I've stayed. They do things that just go the extra mile: complementary happy hour drinks between 4pm and 6pm. They personally welcome you and help you with your luggage. The rooms are clean, immaculate. The service is above and beyond. The location can't be beat. You can hear the waves at the beach at night.

"Nice hotel by the beach and Venice Beach Boardwalk"
The staff was excellent and gave preferential treatment to the hotel guests. A "happy hour" cart came around daily with free drinks! Although the hotel is located to the busy boardwalk, the sliding glass doors to the balcony that "partially" overlooked the beach (and boardwalk) were soundproof. The a/c was not a box by the window. Even on the top floor (6th) no noise was heard from the Rooftop Lounge. The valet staff were courteous and helpful. But there is only one elevator (show your room key and the staff will let you on it before those going to the Rooftop Lounge. The lighting on the roof was not optimal (check the online menu before going up). And the biggest disappointment was no swimming pool. Otherwise, everything was primo! Thanks to the staff...we will return.

"Not the best, not the worst"
Hotel is old and it looks like they have done some recent renovations. The renovations make it a little nicer but still the overall feel of the hotel is old. The air conditioner didn't work when we got there and it took the maintenance guy forever to get there. The room seemed to be missing outlets to plug in a phone charger too. Why didn't they add these next to the bedside when the did the renovations?? Shower was okay- pretty tiny. The bedding was very nice. The restaurant downstairs was terrible for dinner. Poor service.

"The best hotel on Venice beach."
My husband, 2 kids and me stayed in Ervin in July 2014. In my opinion it is the best hotel on the Venice beach - small boutique, very clean, friendly staff, very close to the beach (1-2 minutes walking). We stayed on the 5th floor in 505 - this room does not have a balcony like others which was a little upsetting (you want to throw your swimming suits outside to dry up). Our room wasn't getting cleaned up soon enough so we just asked for clean towels and trash to be removed but it really didn't spoil our experience. Nice stay overall.

This quiet hotel is very well located near the board walk and skate board park for the teenager. Do not rely on outside appearance of the building that seems to be neglected since the interior is new and clean with good services. You do not need your car to walk on the beach or board walk as the hotel is located one block from the beach.   There has numerous souvenir shops and chip stand. You can also rent bikes and other equipment to have fun on the beach.

"Hotel steps from Venice Beach"
This hotel is probably the best for the area it's located in. It's literally just a few steps from the Venice Beach boardwalk. BUT this hotel does NOT have queen beds like it states at their own website. We booked a 2 queen room but when we checked it, they stated the hotel on has double beds. Doubles would not do and had I known that would not have stayed here. The staff was very accommodating to the situation and upgraded us to a two room king suite with a pull-out. The room was very clean/comfortable.

"Beach Scene"
We stayed one night at the Erwin Hotel. It is located a short walk to the beach. Overall the hotel is very nice and clean. I upgraded to a room with an ocean view but it is located just under the pounding beat of the DJ on the roof which stops at 10PM. Parking was not free. For one night it was $35. The roof is a great place to watch the sunset, have a few drinks and mingle. A bit pricey but for a special occasion I would highly recommend Hotel Erwin.

We recently stayed for our one year anniversary. I booked a king size bed room and when we checked in clerk said she would b upgrading us ... TO OUR SURPRISE we got downgraded :( to a queen on the 6th floor right next to elevator. So our room was so noisy. I'm sure her intentions were good. The location was great. Easy access to the beach and many other places. We had dinne at baby blues BBQ on Lincoln about 1 mile away. The best BBQ we've had so far. PS. The hotel did cover our valet few due to the inconvienace for our room.
