Weekend visit

Great value and convenient location to Venice. The hotel is more of being trendy vs family atmosphere. The rooms are somewhat smaller with a platform bed and small bathroom. This is more for those under age of 25.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

1) Next to Ralph's grocery store. You can buy bottle water/snacks at normal prices. 2) If you're willing to walk 2 blocks, you can park on side street without paying $20 for valet. Be sure you read the parking signs because some streets have no overnight parking from 10pm-2am.

Adequate

Stayed here many times over the last few years. Good beds. Usually clean. I use this hotel as a serviceable back up to other LAX hotels when rates are up. No problem staying here and I'm particular when it comes to hotels. Doesn't hurt to have wifi included.

The Custom

Girls weekend. We wanted to be closer to the beach towns. Turns out a cab was only $15 to Abbot Kinney in Venice beach so that was good. Nice clean modern and for $85 a night you can't beat it. Nice colored neon lights that change are awesome but the rest of the lighting was terrible...too dark! Otherwise nice decor and clean. We wished there was a hot tub but didn't make it over to the pool.

Great location

Really enjoyed the Custom Hotel - nice rooms and great location. It's very close to LAX and all around are stores, restaurants, gas stations, residences in a great neighborhood - and, all is not claustrophobic, like much of LA and those hotels right next to LAX. However, note that much at Custom Hotel is "extra," like parking ($20) and breakfast ($11.95). Staff is friendly & helpful.

Great quick stop!!!!!

Part of my road trip from Vegas to sf, need a place to crash for a few nights and do a little shopping, it's convenient located next to the air port and in and out burgers! Rooms are clean but you can tell it was an dorm with a great renovation. And you can't beat the price

good value

This is not a luxury hotel but it was great for the cost. The paint was peeling on the doors and the tiles in the bathroom were a little worse for wear but the room was clean, the bed was comfy, the staff was super nice, and the restaurant food was delish.
