The Kinney - Venice Beach

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My wife and I recently stayed at the Kinney when we were in the Venice Beach area for a friends wedding. We absolutely loved our stay, our room was great, very comfortable and trendy. We could tell that the hotel recently had a renovation and everything looked very nice. We really enjoyed the amenities (outdoor bar, hot tubs and hammocks). To top everything off, the staff was super friendly and were always offering to assist in any way they could. When we are back in the area, we will most certainly book a room at the Kinney again!

Located in the very nice area with real LA vibe, this hotel is close to so many attractions, great food options and shopping. It’s design is very different, stuff is very friendly and helpful. The only con I can mention, there’s not enough storage in the room. The closest is very small. The dresser has only two small drawers and absolutely useless glass shelves. Same goes for nightstand, no drawers. Very unfortunate choice of furniture for the hotel. Otherwise enjoyed my stay.

We stayed here as a stop over on the way to Asia. Rubi was a gracious front desk clerk that answered any question that I had. Very safe area for walking around after dark as I did not feel scared in any way at all.

Great service and rooms. Affordable with tasty breakfast options. Stayed here with family of four, location is about a mile from beach but shuttle service. Hotel is well equipped with pool fitness and brink your own drinks bar. Valet service available.

This is an excellent option for those who are interested in exploring the shopping and dining scene on nearby Abbot Kinney. It's a thoroughly remodeled motel with good-sized rooms and a nice wading pool on the second floor.

This hotel is amazing, it’s close to the beach, the food here is great, especially breakfast. The workers here are so nice and helpful. 10/10 would come here again. They also have a small gym. Ping pong table and a pool.

This hotel is very welcoming and has great customer service. The art in the hotel was gorgeous and perfect for pictures. The patio area had ping pong tables which are available for everyone. The breakfast served was delicious. Amazing stay for the weekend. Very close to the beach and great location. Recommended!

Most places in Venice are dumpy and this one is an exception. Clean, big rooms with friendly staff as well.. There is a bit of noise at night because people are hanging out in the common areas but I thought it wasn't bothersome at all. It's Venice Beach, people are having fun.

Very unique retro 70's themed hotel. The pictures don't do it justice! It was immaculate, not just the rooms ...the entire grounds were spotless. The rooms are a bit small but they are the best I have ever stayed in and we travel frequently. The beds are not on a traditional box springs, they are on a wooden futon type frame but we slept GREAT....soft and yet supportive at the same time. Great water pressure in shower and AMAZINGLY Quiet. Our view was of Washington St. but we never heard any noise. It was a nice walk ( a little longer than expected) to Venice Beach but Venice Beach has a free Mini Bus service that arrived to bring us back within 10 min of our call. It is within walking distance of a Walgreens, donut shop, IHOP, Chick Filet etc. The "vibe" is hard to describe...we all LOVED it. Including the 2 person Hammocks and Ping Pong tables in the courtyard. The staff is SUPER NICE, could not have been friendlier or more helpful. We will stay at The Kinney everytime we go to L.A.!!!!!!

The location is good; walking distance to lots of different restaurant/bar/shopping pockets in the neighborhood. The décor and ambiance of this hotel is amazing! Very much fits with the vibes of Venice. The staff was also so helpful and friendly. The AGM Carlos went above and beyond to make sure our stay was everything we wanted. Even the valet, Juan, made sure to go out of his way for anything we needed. Would definitely recommend!
