With our playful style and central location, live like a local at The Kinney hotel in Venice Beach. Grab your entourage and truly experience So Cal - from courtyard loungin' to beach cruisin' - our house is your house. Keep the Snaps going with complimentary Wi-Fi, cool off in our dipping pool, and when you're ready to call it a night, refresh in brand-new beds. Now is the time to truly experience Venice (and give your friends a little FOMO).

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.

Close to some great neighborhoods including the beach, cute hotel with a great community outdoor area to lounge and relax in. The small hot tub was great for the cool December LA nights, and the staff was amazing and eager to please.

Great place to stay near Abbot Kinney and Venice beach. Rooms are funky and very clean. Staff is very helpful and friendly. There’s a fitness centre, hammocks and very nice pool area. Good vibes. Will definitely visit again.

It really doesn’t make any sense to pay double price for this motel - even if it’s clearly well managed, even if the rooms are nicely decorated, with comfy bed. With the same price you can stay at the nearby Marriott, and probably DO NOT have to pay for the valet parking

We stayed at this property two years ago and felt like we'd gotten a good deal. They had a solid breakfast similar to a Holiday Inn Express with waffles and eggs, etc... When I went online, I was surprised that their promotion rate for January 2019 was considerably more than we

Both my wife and I love this place! The rooms and common areas are fresh and welcoming with a friendly atmosphere throughout the building thanks to the excellent staff. We have stayed here on two different occasions and would happily return for a third time.

Hi Sandra E, Marina del Rey Quality Cleaners is directly across from The Kinney, located at 720 Washington Blvd. The closest coin laundry is about a mile away. Check with reception when you check in, they would be happy to arrange valet laundry service for you during your stay. We look forward to seeing you soon!

The hotel is easy walking distance to the shopping area on Abbot Kinney. There is a byob bar in the patio area that is cool and unique with chaises and a fire pit.

Do they have safety deposit boxes in their rooms?
Yes, and if I remember correctly they are the type where you set your own PIN. We managed to fit a MacBook, iPad and a netbook in it.

"We booked a Boardwalk Suite, which was very quiet. I think the suites facing the Quad would also be quiet most hours."
"Ask for a room away from the highway - it is loud!"
"Rooms adjacent to the pool and patio area are likely to be more noisy."
"King suites are fantastic, totally worth the extra."
"I like the TOP Floor you see all the center ambiance and decor walking through the hallways from above :)"
