The Kinney - Venice Beach

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I chose this hotel after much research and also from a recommendation of a friend. It didn't disappoint! The hotel is located on a busy street - but parking is easy (valet) and I didn't hear noise from our courtyard room. The hotel is definitely HIP and would appeal to a younger crowd as well as families. Colors are bright and trendy and the amenities beckon people to be social with others. Lots of places to hang out. From the location near Abbott Kinney - we were able to walk to the trendy shops and restaurants on the main drag. Butchers Daughter was a winner! We rented bikes for a reasonable price (5 bucks an hour) and cruised down to the beach and along the path to Santa Monica. Definitely recommend! We then went to the canals and strolled our bikes through to look at the houses that line the canal. Definitely a picturesque attraction. We didn't use pool or hot tub however they looked welcoming although located behind a wall on the busy street. In the main courtyard there is a firepit, ping pong tables and what appeared to be a bar. I can see many parties happening there during busy nights. It wasn't so busy while we were there and I don't think I saw anyone in the courtyard. Breakfast in the morn was a bonus! Bagels, various pastries, fruit, yogurt. I recommend this hotel for an affordable option near all the main attractions.

I really liked The Kinney! First of all, ALL of the front desk staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The 'vibe' in this hotel was really cool and fits well with the Marina del Rey / Venus Beach ambience. The room size was spacious and very comfortable and had good coffee in the room. Breakfast was included and it was totally fine with a good assortment. I would most definitely stay at The Kinney again.

This hotel is very nicely decorated modern chic. The outside patio with fire place is a very nice touch for relaxing in the evening with a good drink or a cup of coffe. They have a pool and a Jacuzzi great for kids but if you want to do laps is not going to work out . They do have a gym and breakfast. Antonio and alex are very service oriented individuals who will treat you like royalty. It seems to me that management must be doing something right all the staff is great, the room was nice, clean and spacious. The bed was awesome . I wish i could have taken a pic before the kiddos got in bed but take my word for it is a great place.

We came to L.A. for the first time and it was incredible. We were upgraded in a suite and the style was totally mine. We enjoyed the time in the hotel,the breakfast was good and the people nice. The pool area was also nice.

Loved the decor. This place is a great find. Free breakfast includes hot food. Entire staff is friendly, from the valet to the front desk to the housekeepers and maintenance crew encountered in the hallways. Pool and hot tub are small but enjoyable. Location good for walking to Marina restaurants and around Venice and getting to LAX quickly. Valet pricing is very reasonable. Only negative is WiFi is for 24 hours at a time.

Stayed here with some girlfriends. Great, cute remodeled hotel. The front desk and valet staff were cheery and helpful. Rooms were clean and spacious. We were near the courtyard area in a suite, but never had trouble with noise. Only about a 20 min walk down Washington to the beach and several restaurants. Definitely would stay here again.

The Kinney looks like a renovated motel. It is clean and modern. No large lobby. Just the front desk and a few sofas. There is a parking garage with valet parking ($25 a night). Room was nicely furnished with colorful paint and wall paper, nice and modern. Bathroom was new and modern too. Room entrances are outdoors, like a motel. We were disappointed with the breakfast, although complimentary, it was very basic. Feel like I shouldn't really complain as it was free. What we did enjoy was the friendly and helpful front desk staff. That always makes a hotel stay better.

We loved staying at the Kinney. We spent several fun hours playing pingpong and hanging out in the pool and hottub in the fantastic courtyard. The decor is hip and fun (in a good way). The staff were friendly and breakfast was good. My son enjoyed the make-your-own-waffle machine. We stayed at the hotel pre-refurb and it was a dump. The renovation is amazing!

Good place nice and clean, breakfast was included make you can make your own waffles , pool area was clean, fire pit also a nice touch, Venice beach near by about 20 mins walk ideal place I would stay again there on a main road so lots of restaurants further up the street, staff friendly

This hotel is excellent. The staff were very helpful, the room comfortable, beautifully decorated, clean and modern. Really couldn't fault it. The pool is small, but clean, and the jacuzzi is like a very hot tub. The outdoor lounging area is fun, do play table tennis. There are some local shops nearby and the beach is about a 15 minute walk. Don't miss the killer Shrimp Cafe, or the Venice Whaler for a bite.
