"On the Boardwalk"
Located on the boardwalk in Venice Beach I was pleased with the cleanliness of the hotel as well as the location. Although the room was on the small side, it was nicely decorated and relaxing and even though we were on the boardwalk, there was no issue with noise. I'd happily stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms too small. No a/c , homeless everywhere, no ice or vending. Tv sucked. Would not stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Tried hard to get out of resvertation but couldn't. Room was hot, no air, no parking, was send down to public parking. $40. A night. Lamp was bend, no refrigerator in room, carpet dirty. We checked out next day and found another hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
The only nice staff person was Jared ( Jaren). Mo is terrible - bad customer service and very rude. The cleaning staff is very nice and very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Still the Cadillac"
The Cadillac is located on a great corner Venice with a terrific view of the beach. The constant parade of humanity going by the hotel makes for great people watching, but it seems that over the years the crowd has gotten a bit too crazy for comfort. The hotel has been remodeled since we last stayed there, but already the carpet was terribly worn, and […] the beds not particularly comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful, and we generally had a pleasant stay. If you want to stay on the beach in LA, your options are somewhat limited, especially on a holiday weekend, so the Cadillac is still a decent option for those who aren't willing to spend $500 a night.

Staff was okay but overall experience was bad. No AC so you have to open the window and hear all the noise from the outside so u can't really sleep, no parking so you have to park far away and wake up early to move your car so it won't get towed away and the hotel itself is messy. I won't recommend this place to anyone stay awayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not that clean"
Rust marks on sheets Stains allllllll over carpets all over hotel. In the room worst but stains all over hallway and stairs. Bathroom fine Mattresses very slippery on their platform. Front desk completely unhelpful. We were not warned against leaving our window open and pigeons came in and pooped all over everything. Will not returnGenuine Expedia guest review
"I guess you pay for location"
because everything else was horrible. for $250 a night you think they could at least have a clean hotel....Genuine Expedia guest review
Homeless people outside the hotel, yelling in the middle of the night. Terrible carpet. hard beds...rock beds. if you get a parking in thier only 20 limit parking, then your lucky. Overall, it was really bad. Only good thing is that the beach is right in front of the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location but wafer thin walls"
This hotel is a bit expensive for what you get. Our room had really creepy old carpet, no air con and the walls are paper thin. I could everything that was going on down the hallway and in the next rooms. If you want a good nights sleep don't stay here. On a positive the staff are friendly and really helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aweful! Save your $ and stay anywhere else! So Bad"
The staff is very unacommidating. They have you park your car arround the back just so you can be sardined with other guests and deffinatly have you car dinged.. Then the allow a vendor to set up his crapolla in the parking lot and he spray paints his peices in the parking lot! So the over spray gets carried on to the "guests" cars.. On top of the fact […] that he leaned his frame against my car and was very unappologetic, the staff reacted in just the same way. They make you pay an additional $20.00 to park there even though your staying with them. I had to fight and call the L.A P.D out to settle the matter just to I could park my car 4 blocks down and have the fee removed. I definatly would not refer this place to anyone! One staff member was very freindly and even he had mentioned in conversation, "Why in the World would you want to stay here?" Well after the experiance that we had... Now I know what he ment by that comment. Instead on a cadillac you should picture a pinto that has trouble starting up and back fires constantly! Definatly do not bring your family/ little ones here.

"Right on the beach"
The best feature of the hotel is the location. Amazing, right on Venice Beach. Otherwise just fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Prime Location = Money Saver"
Cadillac Hotel was perfect. The location in if of itself makes the rate worth it! You'll save so much money being right on the Venice Boardwalk. A friend and I stayed 2 1/2 days in Venice and we packed a weeks worth of adventure into our short stay due to being so close to everything - The shops, the sea, the people.. The rooms are simple, but have […] everything you need! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"wanna git RIPPED??? stay here!!!"
Wi-fi is not surcharge...you WILL get charged! There is no assigned parking for this place. Another CHARGE!!! The delapidated condition reminds me of a 1960's dorm and the size as well. The sink is in the room and not the bathroom. The beds are hard as rocks. Burn holes in the bed covers. Our window had a view of the birds nest that was the roof next […] door. Droppings EVERYWHERE! Wish I could post pics! The ONLY good thing about this place was the proximity to the beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Very cool rooftop view. But no refrigerator in our room, no air conditioning and limited parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Service was superb. Hotel employees helpful and courteous . Great location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best place to stay in Venice"
The hotel is right on the beach, can't get any closer. The room we had was much larger than expected, with a nearly full kitchen, it was just like having a one bedroom apartment. We got to stay in one of the rooms facing the beach, no extra charge. It was a wonderful stay, will stay again and again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what it appears to be"
I was excited to stay here as we had one night in LA before a camping trip. It was horrible, the outside of the hotel was awful, the lobby and elevator smelled horrible, the carpets in the halls and room were absolutely disgusting and filled with stains and unpleasant odors. The neighborhood felt unsafe... I was very disappointed because the hotel was […] absolutely not was it appeared to be. At least be honest in your marketing materials so people know what they are getting into. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"DO NOT STAY HERE"
The carpet throughout the hotel was stained, mismatched and worn. The halls were lined with lines that hadn't been washed all day and night, the wall are paper thin, the rooms look like a bad dream. It could be an amazing hotel but the management doesn't care.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice ocean view"
I was once a resident of Los Angeles and this was always my favorite place to stay. There are a lot of bums but in Los Angeles there is just normally a lot of bums . They will leave you be the art and the scenery alone is what makes Venice beach awesome. This is one of the must see places in Los Angeles ! The carpets need to be redone and there is a […] light odor in the stair well. I enjoyed my stay over all it was nice ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed before, but this time no ice and no frig bothered me. When it's hot there is no air conditioning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
Very friendly staff, Hotel is just a few steps from the Beach, room was ok and if they renew the carpet then it would be perfect ;-)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Okey for one night"
Very small parkingspace and expensive, $20 per night. Wifi awailable but cost $5 per day. The carpets on the floor were filled with dirty spotts and diden't feel fresch. The service was ok but not very good. Overall dissapointed because of the high price of booking and the experience of the stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Getaway spot"
I felt like a baller, rooftop hangout was amazing. top notch price for a top notch hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, Location, Location"
The best thing this hotel has going for it is its location. Step out the front door, and you're right there at the beach. Very nice for a short stay. However, amenities were lacking. The rooms had no air conditioning. This may not be an issue for a majority of the year, however, when I was there, the temperature got into the mid to high 80's, and the […] room was uncomfortably warm. There was no refrigerator (though we were able to get one our second day there), no microwave, no coffee maker, not even a CHAIR in the room. There was a TV, but it was bolted to the wall, with its input ports inaccessible, so I was unable to connect to the HDMI port to stream video from my computer or tablet. There was only a single very small waste basket, in the bathroom. Not large enough to hold take-out containers from a single meal. The parking lot was essentially an alley behind the hotel, for which you had to pay if you wished to park there. Parking spaces were very small, and in some cases you risked getting blocked by other cars (patrons in those cases were supposed to leave their car keys with the front desk, so cars could be shuffled as needed). I would stay there again, but not for more than a few days. On the plus side, there's a wonderful little restaurant, with great food and very reasonable prices, right across the dead-end street from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I had my doubts about this place with other peoples reviews but decided to go with my gut. This place is really great! It's not the ritz.. There's no AC (windows do the trick just fine) people that work there are great. Awesome location. I would definitely stay here again!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very helpful staff and a great location. Carpets in the hallways could do with renewing but that's really my only complaint.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Terrible!!! Don't stay there!"
That place is terrible, very dirty and not like in photos. I ll never recommend this place.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Has potential but needs lots of work."
If you don't care about comfort or luxury and are a 20-something European, it is a very cool location right on Venice Beach. It was not a good choice for a business trip. No hotel parking was available when I arrived.Had to park in lot down the street $20 CASH only. Had to pay to park in hotel lot which was so crammed with cars I had to have a guy from […] reception help me to back out of the lot. Room had the strong smell of bleach when I arrived. Rooms look to be freshly painted and new tile in bathrooms but carpeting throughout the hotel is really old and dirty. Pillows were cheap- fiberfill pillows. I liked the fan in the room and the windows that open but being on the 2nd floor in a dicey neighborhood with a window that doesn't lock was disconcerting. Shower head was broken and water kinda dripped out of it. Wifi was $5 per day. Coffee is available in the lobby for free from a pretty broken down coffee dispensing machine.

I chose the hotel for the great location and the modern feel of it. The staff was very friendly and the room was very comfortable. On the other hand, the carpets off all the hotel were disgusting, and the elevator is very creepy.Genuine Expedia guest review
No A/C, poor cleanliness, etc.... The only thing good is the location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location is the best part of this hotel!"
One of the worst hotel experiences yet. Started with check in. I had already been charged for my entire stay and at check in they told me they didn't have a room for me and they would book a room for me elsewhere. (How nice of them) The hotel that was booked was no where next to the beach. Room was clean and bed was comfty. Shower space sucked. We had […] to pay $20 dollars a day for parking and we always had to fight for parking and when there was no space I was told that they would wave the fee and I could also go park somewhere else. Overall the best part of this hotel was when they didn't have a room for us and we stayed at the Jolly Roger. I recommend this hotel the parking by the beach is $10 a day and Cadillac charges $20 a day. One last thing there is no air condition it's cool enough at night for me but if you need it there isn't a choice for it here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were very disappointed by this hotel. What they didn't tell you in the description is that parking is $20/night and you must exit by 11AM. There is no AC in the room, if you leave your window open, there is no window screen and the carpet is really dirty. It is on a loud alley so again, keeping the window open is not a great option. The beds are […] very thin, firm mattresses, but at least the bedding and towels were nice and clean. A lot of transients are laying out in the grassy area and walking around on the beach front of the hotel... I wish there was a shelter to provide a better option for them. All in all this Venice Beach area didn't feel nearly as safe as 1 mile down the road near Santa Monica pier. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great location, but not the nicest facility"
I was looking for safe, on the beach, and parking. Cadillac has all that! PRking is $20 there or at a public lot1 building away. Staff is friendly and helpful. Cheap but good cafe next door. I'm used to hostels so was ok with this place having stained carpets and paper thin walls, but others may not like that. I could see the boardwalk and ocean from […] my room, and you can hang out on the roof for great views of all of Venice. In all, it was worth the stay if only for the parking. Places with thicker walls will be at least $100 more per night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was right on the beach! For the price and location I loved it. The bathroom and bed were clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not a place to stay with your children"
The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating however the hotel itself needs a major overhaul. The carpet throughout the hotel needs to be replaced. Although we had no problem with the fact that their was no AC, it would greatly improve the sleeping conditions as all night there is someone outside your open window having a party. Lobby coffee […] maker out of order, ice machine out of order. Great spot if all you want to do is go to the beach but nothing to do at night. No place for a family vacation.

"Perfect Perfect Location"
The Cadillac hotel is in a perfect Location in the middle of everything, I had an ocean view and I could even see the Santa Monica Pier from my window, The hotel it self is old they've done some remodeling but the carpet was really dirty, all over the hotel. The furniture is old, There was no fridge in our room and no ice in the hotel -_- The parking […] was really small and not enough spaces. But the hotel staff were very nice and helpful.

We checked in, went to the room, ran to the beach and made arrangements w/ family to get out. It was creepy, dirty & the front desk staff person was very rude. The carpet felt wet. The room was hot and stuffy. The whole hotel had a really weird and creepy vibe. Overall we didn't feel safe let alone comfortable. Wouldn't put an enemy here. Save your […] money & don't stay at Venice Beach. The only exception would be if you're 21 and only there to party. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Filthy room with a great view"
Hotel was dirty, carpet filthy, shoe print on the comfortoer and stains on the towels. Room had no tables/chairs or places to put things. Had to pay extra $5 for WiFi that we didn't use. Also had to pay $20/night for parking even though the parking lot was already full and we were unable to park there. The view and location were the only positive things […] about this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very comfortable hotel. The guy that was working was extremely helpful as I made a mistake during booking online. The only bad part was the old windows wouldn't close and it was so windy the shade over the window was blowing cold air into the room. Great time with the kids overall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for"
We just wanted to stay on the beach for the night before we went up to the hills to stay with friends. The location is phenomenal. It is right on the beach at the end of venice beach, so you're right at the action and are also a short walk up to the pier at santa monica. The cafe's nearbye are all great as well. The hotel was not very clean to say the […] least but you get what you pay for. The rooms were standard and a descent size. The staff was really cool and helpful. But the dirtiness may be a deal breaker for you. Also it's venice beach so dont let all the bums at night shock you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do not book!!"
It was a great view and fun on Venice beach.. but comfort for you and your pet awful..didn't sleep for two days and finally I cancelled my trip. Needs RENOVATIONS!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Inexpensive Venice Beach Stay"
The Cadillac Hotel is right on a busy portion of Venice beach, a very colorful "alternative" beach full of art venders and shops. It's about 1.5 mile walk to Santa Monica Pier. If you have kids, the area is full of marijuana shops, paraphernalia, and ads The hotel is a bit older, burn marks were on the carpet of our room, but it's not bad, and was fairly […] clean. I don't know if our room had air conditioning, maybe just an old radiator and a ceiling fan. We didn't need it but we like air conditioners for background sound (would have drowned out the garbage trucks early in morning.) Overall, it's a fun place to stay. Not too fancy, but for the price, it was great, and would definitely go back. Parking in their side lot is an extra twenty dollars/day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We needed a hotel that accepted pets & found this hotel right in the middle of the boardwalk. Rooms were small, no mini fridge & TV reception horrible, but we were only in our room to sleep. Hotel clean but needs an update for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is on the beach and they think that's all that matters. Cramped room, stained carpets, heavy cigarette smoke in the halls. It may be filled with tourists, but it feels like there are crackheads behind every door. This place does a lot of business and it's usually full, they should put some of the profit back into the building.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect location on Venice Beach....cool place but very dirty. Carpet in our room and staircase was filthy...stains on our comforters..so if you can overlook a little dirt it was ok - for the price plus paying for parking and WIFI, it should be cleaner. Would probably stay again - staff very nice and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We ended up staying elsewhere because of the deplorable conditions of this hotel. The pictures online are extremely deceiving. So disappointed!!!!! Go to Hotel Erwin instead.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a 2 1/2 star hotel. For that group, it is GREAT! The location couldn't be better, right at the heart of the Venice Beach Boardwalk. Rooms and bathrooms are minimalist and streamlined but clean. Parking and WiFi are extra but that is very normal for this area. The best part of the whole place is the rooftop. Grab a bottle of wine or a couple […] of beers, and watch the sunset over the Pacific. I will try to add a picture but it was really amazing. Whole experience was better than I hoped for in a 2 1/2 star non-chain hotel. I will stay here again when we come back to Venice Beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
