Location is the only benefit
Oarking fee and valet is outrageously priced the hotel tried to charge me for it though I never had a vehicle there. Both bars are terrible dont waste your money. Location is really all they have. Not a three let alone 4-star hotel

Stay somewhere w less attitude
Rudest parking staff and door staff. Beautiful hotel but very rude people working in some areas. NO ONE should be disappointed about staying at a hotel and every guest was complaining about the staff I spoke with in the halls and elevators. Very rude

Check in with Brandon was excellent. Check out with Miguel was a pain. Got coffee at the small coffee shop downstairs. Their credit card machine was SO slow. they need to upgrade their wifi. The rooftop bar was awesome as usual. The weather was actually really cold for July. Had to buy a tourist hoodie because it got so cold. Eggslut for breakfast was awesome. Stayed here many times. Always fun to be in Venice Beach. Have fun, but keep your eyes open.

Nice boutique hotel with beach access and views!
We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Erwin. Staff was really helpful and remember all of the guests. Very cozy lobby adds to the personal touch. Views of the ocean and beach were really nice to have. Plenty of towels for showers. Beach amenities were really convenient—cooler, chairs, towels and an umbrella!

Bliss on the beach
This hotel is incredible!!!! It’s right on the beach, walking distance to everywhere! The service was outstanding from check in to check out. The facilities were awesome, the room was great and clean! We could see the beach from our room, we walked down and spent some time there, walked to the Venice canals and ate breakfast at the restaurant across the street. We didn’t want to leave and would definitely go back again!
