From arriving at the Kinney on Saturday 1st October, our stay was fantastic. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble, they rang cabs for us at least 10 nights with no complaints. The suite we had on the 3rd floor was massive, more than enough room for 4 of us. The only thing was we...

We stayed at the Kinney for four nights last August, it was newly renovated and our room was perfect. It was a large room with a queen bed and a sofa bed. Potentially you can close doors and turn it into a double room. Everything immaculate and perfect. There is a small pool, a mini heated jacuzzi and a sunbathing...

I travel frequently for work, and when in Santa Monica, always stay at the Kinney, formerly the Inn at Marina del Ray. Always clean, staff pleasant, rooms great, and several good restaurants are walking distance away. I'm usually here around 2 weeks at a time, and it is a relaxing place to come "home" to. One small (but important) thing...

Great place to stay. The work on the newly renovated hotel has been done with a lot of thought and a lot of pizzazz. The studio room we stayed in was a perfect size for the 2 of us and the colourful comic hipster theme was really something quote outstanding. The vibrant colours of the room invited you in warmly...

We stayed at the Kinney on our way back to Australia. The room and room service were excellent, and the bed and pillows were particularly comfortable. The Kinney's decor is modern and chic, giving the whole hotel a distinct boutique feel. The rooftop lap pool and spa pool offered welcome relief after our all-day walk to Santa Monica and back....

We booked two nights in this place months before we arrived and in the meantime it had gone through a refurbishment and changed its name. It also raised it prices by about $100 a night which we didn't have to pay as our rate was fixed when we booked. So I am giving it four stars based on our cost...

This hotel is probably my new favorite in the LA area. Super comfy beds, great breakfast, and everyone on staff was incredibly pleasant, helpful, and accommodating. The room was larger than I expected and the high end toiletries were a great bonus. I loved the pop art decor in the room and second floor pool and courtyard were nice surprises!...
