      Facilities are a bit dated”
      The street noise kept us awake every night as the windows were faulty and could not be fully closed and any room which is on the road side will get excessive noise as there is no double/triple glazing. The fridge was old and dated and ran most of the night as the thermostat was inoperative. All defect reported to reception.

      Clean, FULL kitchen, rustic.”
      My room had a FULL kitchen with everything except food. There were two queen beds. One had to be pulled out from the wall. Everything was very clean. There was a strong WIFI signal. Breakfast was included and there were a variety of foods. The building is very rustic with attractive old red bricks and most other parts had a lot of paint. The toilet has a wall in front of it so close that an adult must sit sideways to use it. There were no easily accessible electrical receptacles. During my second night, at 2:06 am I was charged an additional $150 for an unknown reason. After discovering the charge 20 hours later, I called and they said that they would remove it.

      NOT WORTH MONEY”
      The only good thing is that the room is spacious. However, it looks 50 years older than what in the photos looks like. Almost everything is dirty (floor, bathroom, kitchen). The floor is dusty and the bathroom’s hardwares are rusty. We stayed here in the winter and the heater did not work well. It was so noisy that waking us up in the middle of the night so we had to turn it off and sleep in cold. Although the location is near the beach, there is no parking for those who have cars. We had to park at a garage 10 mins walking distance away and pay extra $20. I don’t feel safe staying here.

      Excellent staff and super location. Parking is a pain however it's no different in that area with any other hotel. Staff helped us to find a overnight parking space however it was a bit far with kids. Suggest to tie up with nearby valet parking/parking location . We were a bit scared to walk far off parking space in night with kids.

      There's no parking at this hotel. Front desk recommends $25day lots. Free parking was on street 6 blks away. Clerk warned me NEVER to say the room combo out loud. OK. Entered the room where two floor fans are on high. strong odor of coverup hotel cleaning solution. I complained and was told the room did not smell. The 'extra' bed actually pulls out from under the bathroom. the bathroom is located on top the bed when it is in storage. The toilet does not fit in the room and you have to sit sideways. Toilets and #2 don't work well sideways. There are three steep stairs you negotiate to return to the living qtrs from bath. Dangerous if you stumble. Light switches and outlets are a challenge to locate. The hotel is billed as 'historic Venice'....which means very old with lots of coats of paint. The photos presented do not match the reviews. Bed was clean tho. If you want to cancel, you'll still be charged. Best of luck to the owners.

      Shocking Customer Service”
      Didn’t have a room for me despite me having an email from them with a reservation number. Was treated really badly, no apology from any of the staff. Was put in a room after about 45 minutes, then made to change rooms the next day. Very grubby and in need of a refurb. On leaving two indifferent staff members couldn’t even be bothered to look up and say goodbye, one of them was the manager. A lot of other people seemed to be having a hard time checking in. Avoid at all costs. Plenty of other nicer places to stay.

      We paid for an ocean view. Managers and staff confirmed that multiple times. They promised to make it up to us. Promised to refund a large portion of our bill. And then? NOTHING. Understand, this is deceptive business practices. This is theft. If you plan an oceanview vacation and want what you paid for, you might be better someplace else. And trust, we really wanted to give this place a good/great review. But shady is shady. Renter beware.
