There are other reviews that complained about the cleanliness of the rooms, and the mattresses. There is no fitted sheet on the mattress, it is just a single sheet laid on top of the mattress, so the mattress pad can be seen, and we did have some questionable stains that we could see once the sheet was removed, but we just pulled the sheet down further and made sure that we weren't touching those places. Despite that, we will stay here again when we go back to Los Angeles and Venice Beach!
The outside of this motel definitely needs some updating, but please just book the room and enjoy your stay in the updated rooms! This was by far the best hotel that we stayed at all week! The room was spacious, the bed was huge, the bathroom was large and clean and the staff was friendly! This hotel is about a 25 minute walk from the beach (too far with beach bags), or a 10 minute and $5 charge using Uber.
