Cadillac Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Overpriced ($550 for 2 nights ) hole in the wall motel - filthy carpet - the whole suite was a joke - rude staff - homeless people camping all day around the hotel ! Stay away from this hotel !

no complaints pleasent stay loved the ciew and staff and hotel

The hotel staff was very nice and courteous. However, the room had no AC and in Southern California, I am not sure how that is even legal. The room only had the basics: bed, night table, small eating table, one chair, fan, closet, small window, shower, toilet, small sink, and a TV. There was no mini fridge, no security box, no bath tub. Even worse, the floors in the room were carpeted and the carpet was severely stained, to a point where the carpet should have been completely removed from the room and trashed, it would have been impossible to clean all the stains.

There is no air conditioning in this hotel and while the breeze cools the hallway well it does not reach the room even with windows open. There is a large homeless population right outside this hotel that was noisy and unruly. Police were literally on scene to try and help several times that night for one mentally disturbed man in particular. This is not a good beach for families with children and it does not feel very safe. The restaurant next door is wonderful but they are noisy at night as they take down their chairs and tables. We were awake all night from either heat, yelling homeless people or noise from the restaurant. We give this place 2.5 stars for effort as you can tell they are trying to revitalize it but there is too much downside going on for us to recommend it or stay again.

The only upside is the fact that it's close to the beach. The carpet was filthy. The room smelled terrible and was unbelievably hot. We've stayed on Venice beach in the Venice breeze suites for the past 6 years but it was all booked so hose Cadillac and it was disappointing. The rooms definitely need wood floors to get rid of the musky smells.

Driving into town at night to check in, the area felt unsafe and run down and made me very leary about wanting to even stay here. Once inside the lobby, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The bedding and bathroom were clean and updated but the carpet in my room was filthy and had an odor.

Friendly staff, very helpful. The building is being remodel at this time. Not a luxury hotel, but it is a nice decent, down to earth hotel, You will definitely get the California experience. I love the fact that the hotel is so close to the beach. Every morning my daughter and I were able to just walk to the beach. If you just want to go visit the beach or be near the beach, this is a great little hotel to go to. There is a nice restaurant right across from the hotel, excellent food. Overall, great experience.

This hotel has an AWESOME location and appeared to be a great price, but there was no air conditioning. Thankfully that night the temperature got down into the 60's, so the no air conditioning was not a problem. Other than that this hotel was good. You cannot beat it's location for the price. I would stay here again (but will have to remember to check the weather forecast.)

Clean good place on the boardwalk. Great roof deck viewa

Can't beat the location and the price. Great staff, very nice place.

The hotel was not as expected. You can hear the rooms next to you. Also, they do not offer parking they will ask you to park it next door where they gonna charge you 20 away and 30 over night. Room smells nasty. i will not stay there again for the price

It is very well located, cleaness coul be a lot better, overall is ok a little expensive for waht it is

The hotel is great if you are looking for location and being so close to the beach was also our aim. If you are looking for luxury you are not going to get it with this hotel as it is basic. The room we had was small and did not have much of a view although I had requested this when booking my trip. It is within walking distance of the famous Pier and the outdoor bars and many bands playing made this an ideal spot. Very busy location with lots to see and the street vendors were everywhere. If you rent a car from the airport like I did you will find it difficult to park as there is limited parking available.

short stay. rooms were fine very basic. hotel was right on the water with a beautiful view. parking lot was tight and difficult with SUV.

A dirty, terribile elevator, the room was covered of smoke of tabacco, the charge 20 usd for parking trat you can found outsider for 9, the place is a homeless parking. Too much for 145 usd

Clean, friendly staff, great rate for LA and for the location. Overall a great choice.

We have stayed at 3 other hotels/condos on Venice. This was by far the best deal. The view from our room was great and we could hear the ocean waves all night. We've payed $250 a night for a little condo, it was nice and bigger, but this was a better price. We were able to stay 3 nights. It was a clean, small room, but it was trendy and just the right size. It's also across the street from some of our favorite bars. The bar directly across the street had $8 PBR pitchers all day, every day, so that was another great way to save money.

Hotel was situated on the beach - lots of local vibe and spirit. Room was cosey but good hard bed and close to many things.

Although the eclectic crowd of Venice Beach can be overwhelming for some, it should detour you from the great location, boutique ameneties, and general style of the Cadillac Hotel. Ameneties are few and streets are small, its an overall great deal if you don't plan on staying in you hotel the whole time.

I went to Venice alone to simply get away from it all. This hotel was perfect because all I was looking for was a bed to sleep in and a shower to wash up. Served its purpose wonderfully.
