This was my third visit to The Kinney, and it will always be my first choice of hotels in this area. It has a quirky, whimsical vibe with freshly decorated mid-century modern furnishings. There is a fun outdoor" recreation area" on the second floor with a small pool, lounge chairs, ping pong tables and a fantastic fire pit. Every staff...

A good hotel with large rooms and bathroom, in excellent position to visit Venice Beach and Santa Monica. We got a special booking with free parking and free breakfast. There is also a small pool. What else?

I chose this hotel after much research and also from a recommendation of a friend. It didn't disappoint! The hotel is located on a busy street - but parking is easy (valet) and I didn't hear noise from our courtyard room. The hotel is definitely HIP and would appeal to a younger crowd as well as families. Colors are bright...

I really liked The Kinney! First of all, ALL of the front desk staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The 'vibe' in this hotel was really cool and fits well with the Marina del Rey / Venus Beach ambience. The room size was spacious and very comfortable and had good coffee in the room. Breakfast was included and it was...

Loved the decor. This place is a great find. Free breakfast includes hot food. Entire staff is friendly, from the valet to the front desk to the housekeepers and maintenance crew encountered in the hallways. Pool and hot tub are small but enjoyable. Location good for walking to Marina restaurants and around Venice and getting to LAX quickly. Valet pricing...

Stayed here with some girlfriends. Great, cute remodeled hotel. The front desk and valet staff were cheery and helpful. Rooms were clean and spacious. We were near the courtyard area in a suite, but never had trouble with noise. Only about a 20 min walk down Washington to the beach and several restaurants. Definitely would stay here again.

The Kinney looks like a renovated motel. It is clean and modern. No large lobby. Just the front desk and a few sofas. There is a parking garage with valet parking ($25 a night). Room was nicely furnished with colorful paint and wall paper, nice and modern. Bathroom was new and modern too. Room entrances are outdoors, like a motel....

We loved staying at the Kinney. We spent several fun hours playing pingpong and hanging out in the pool and hottub in the fantastic courtyard. The decor is hip and fun (in a good way). The staff were friendly and breakfast was good. My son enjoyed the make-your-own-waffle machine. We stayed at the hotel pre-refurb and it was a dump....

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice
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.
