The Kinney - Venice Beach

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This property has been recently renovated with a fun decor. Our room/suite had a sofa bed in the living area and the queen size bed was very comfortable. The breakfast is very good and the breakfast room is bright and modern. All of the staff are very pleasant and go out of their way to be helpful. With the permission of the manager, we used the courtyard area for a private gathering and everyone on staff worked with us to make it success.

We had an amazing spaciois room with a view to the back street. Highly recommend that side as very quiet back road with very scarce traffic. There are rooms leading to the courtyard pool area, can get a bit noisy, one night some people were playing loud music there, and you will be awaken by people using the pool in the morning if you want to sleep till late. Location is great, less than 10min walk to the beach, its a quiet ish area, no hustle and bustle of the beach area, and definitely no junkies out and about as you will find all along the beach. Room deco quite trendy and quirky. Room very spacious, with a separate living room area. Tv in the bedroom and in the living room. Great! We were allowed a late check out 1300/1330, that was really helpful.

Took my girlfriend here for two nights for her birthday and we both absolutely loved it! Great location too! Cool color scheme, & feels modern. We will definitely be going back and recommending it to people wanting to stay in this area

This hotel is understaffed with unprofessional and slow-moving service. It took more than 30 minutes to check-in, there is no rooms service, and I didn't receive toiletries after my first room cleaning. When I called down to ask for toiletries (so I could take a shower), it took 25 minutes to receive soap. I have not enjoyed my experience here and I am a person who stays in hotels at least once per month. Unacceptable.

This is my new favorite hotel in California, in fact, anywhere. My trip started with a terrible Air B&B experience so at 11:30pm as a single female traveler I called up The Kinney. They got me a room right away and wow, a world of difference! Everything is SO tastefully decorated and retro cool. My room had a comfy king bed with a touch light on the headboard, cool comic designed nightstands, an awesome Elvis Presley print, 2 tvs, the world's best shower, I could go on! The outside pool area and courtyard is the realest and your friends will in fact be jealous of your IG and snap stories. With late checkout on my last day and an amazing acai Bowl for breakfast, I already can't wait to come back with friends. *The staff truly made the experience welcoming and comfortable. Jose at the front desk and Antonio by the pool felt like instant friends and accommodate your every need. I felt like a star staying here and I highly recommend you book with The Kinney for a fabulous So Cal experience. You won't regret it.

This is the second time we've stayed here. Last year was in mid reno so good to stay again when all finished. Best thing about this place is the location, close enough to walk to the madness of Venice or quick uber to Santa Monica and the airport. We requested a very early checkin due to early flight and that was organised which was awesome. We also asked for a room away from the road as it was very noisy last year and that was accommodated which was great and well worth requesting. Room was very nice and comfy. Pillows are feather which we got changed over . Staff here are really friendly and helpful and give the hotel a laid back, almost family feel. Moans? Only a couple. Housekeeping was inconsistent with somethings not replaced some days and they removed the non-slip mat from the shower for some reason. A do think there is a tonne of waste at the hotel. I'm no tree hugger but it was awful seeing the amount of waste from the breakfast which is all served on disposables crockery and cutlery. I know they are saving on washing up etc but there has to be a better way. All in all, a great place to stay and probably the best value for money in the area.

The service was excellent. The staff is super friendly I a great experience . I will come back the pool is nice . Rooms are excellent. Valley is very convenient,Close to everything i give it a 5+, rooms are excellent clean and super not cr

From check-in to checkout, the staff was attentive, courteous and caring, and the hotel itself has a fun, playful attitude that my friends & I agree evokes the best of what LA attitude should be-- laid-back, friendly, unpretentious. Is it fancy? Nope. But it doesn't try to be. At the same time, anything you need is at your fingertips, and the location is great. The courtyard is a huge plus, and made for a wonderful evening making new friends. We all agreed that we would enthusiastically stay here again!

Loved the decor and the vibe. Definitely a cool spot! The beds were super comfortable and the room was spacious. The pool and courtyard area were very nice as well. Loved all the unique dining options that are within walking distance.

This is a great new spot in Marina del Rey. You are a stones throw from just about everything. You can walk to Abbot Kinney, close to Venice Beach and centrally located. The room was huge! Small fridge came in handy! Good sized bathroom and all very clean. Will stay here again when visiting Venice!
