I read the reviews and had mixed feelings but decided to take a gamble and was certainly glad that I did. I wanted to stay in a place where I could walk to Whiskey a Go Go and Rainbow Grill as that was where I was meeting friends. I had an easy check in and parking for my car. My room was huge with living room and bedroom. It was clean and very comfortable. The pool was really nice. The atmosphere was nice. The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. I was unsure about it being an optional clothing Inn but there was nothing out of the ordinary. Even though I am straight I was not uncomfortable with any of my surroundings - that honestly wouldn't bother me anyways. I didn't see any 'sketchy' people around at all. It was a gem in the heart of West Hollywood. I love the style of the bungalows - makes your room seem very private and separate.
I would certainly stay at San Vicente Inn again. I felt I got a really good value for my money. Surrounding hotels would have cost twice as much and San Vicente Inn gave me that relaxed beachy kind of feeling. I love the staff as they were so pleasant to talk to. I needed an extra hour upon checking out and they told me no problem. I definitely will be returning and next time for a longer period :)
Tweakers Paradise – Me and my boys stayed here and the staff was real cool. The staff even smoked some stuff with us and we talked about old times and just hung around the resort. We couldn't really leave since one of us had a warrant but it was all good.
none of us got laid though but we JO and had a nice release.
Pitiful – One word that will sum up my stay at “The San Vicente Inn” in West Hollywood is pitiful. I had some personal property stolen out of my room (an iphone, a Blackberry Storm, debit card and school ID.) Through extortion from an employee, yes that’s right, an employee, and almost a brawl between his friends and mine, I was able to recover my Blackberry and school ID. My iphone and debit card is still at large! The night reminded me of a scene from a bad horror film. After recovering the phone and dealing with the police, I went back to my room to collect what was left of my property. I talked to a manager and asked for a refund, at which he declined. He was very unprofessional in handling the situation, didn’t take any ownership over the claims, and rejected my request. I was asked to call back the next day so that he had time to speak with the owner. I never got a response from them or the other manager, Eric, who screened my calls the next three days. Nonetheless, on my 26th birthday, I have a police report filed, a $90 claim with my bank, a complaint to the Better Business Bureau, and a ridiculous memory that will follow me for many years! AVOID THIS BUSINESS!! The rooms are filthy, carpets need cleaning, bathrooms are small, and security is questionable. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY RUN!! THERE’S A REASON WHY THE ROOMS ARE SO CHEAP, THE QUALITY JUST ISN’T THERE!!!!!
lovely spot – a lovely small resort located in WeHo... heplful friendly staff always ready to fulfill our (decent) request.
since it was our first stay there, they kindly upgraded us to a very nicely located pooldeck room.
One night, we found some ants running on the night table (did we leave some "ant food" there ? possible), when i reported it to the reception guy, he looked sorry and spontaneously proposed us to sleep in an other room
Since our plane was much later than check out time, the (friendly) manager offered us to stay as long as we wanted.
Reviews on this resort are very contrasted... for our own, we have been very kindly treated, room was clean, amenities were ok. of course it is not a 5 * hotels but it has a real charm, beautiful trees and plants, squirrels running on the terrace in the morning, colibri birds sucking banana tree nectar...these little things are priceless but are a real + in the so active L.A.
when in the place, there is a feeling of relative disorder, more or less like in a family cottage, for us it was an added enjoyment.
clients are what they are as i am what i am.... so i will not give any opinion related to other residents or visitors as i read sometimes...
our experience there was very positive and i will recommend this resort to our (gay) friends
Great Location, great staff – My friend and I stayed here in July; we are from the UK and spent 2 lovely days at the Inn. From outside, it doesn't look much, but inside the rooms huddled round the lovely courtyard and heated pool create a lovely atmosphere. Staff very friendly, helped with all irequests, printed out directions to get to Universal Studios, etc. Manager very efficient and doing a great job to tidy up the past reputation that this place may have had. True, place is still being refurbishd, our room, the bungalow, still needed some plastering and had a noisy air conditioner, but these are little things. The manager assured me that the place will be perfect by September. Will definitely stay again. Thanks all at the Inn.
very classy a home away from home – I stayed here for 10 days for a mini getaway, Over all despite the negative reviews this hotel is very nice and clean. The front desk is very helpful, and will try to help you in every they can. THANK YOU CHRIS, RON, JEREMY, MICHAEL AND BUCK. The rooms are very clean, and if you need anything from housekeeping they are there to help you. thanks to LESTER, JUAN, DANIEL, AND JACINTO I recommend the N'S room and H, If you want privacy these are the rooms to book.
Great Memories, Heated pool parties at night, Beatiful grounds. – I have stayed at the Inn many times. I have read many of the other reviews and i felt i should leave one as well. I enjoy the Inn every time i stay there. It can be expensive, however for what you get and where it is located it is a good deal. The staff is very helpfull and courteous. The location is GREAT, close to many of west hollywood's hotspots. Every time I have been there I feel i have have had my needs met more than adequetly. The place is absolutely charming and I would stay there anytime. The place is always booked with travelers so call in advance and confirm your reservation. The only thing i wish i had more of when i was there was more time by the pool, which is heated now and kept at an appropriate temperature. I think the place is kept up very well and is clean. I never had any problem any of the times i was there and would suggest anyone looking for a great stay in west hollywood to check it out.
Not As Bad As Reported – I was there in July 2008. I was nervous going there because I had read alot of negative reviews, but, the location is what took me there.
I believe they must have cleaned it up ALOT! It was nott as bad as I had expected. You have to keep in mind that this is Hollywood CA, not your own home. It is several houses turned into a guesthouse hotel. It's NOT the Hilton but doesn't claim t be either.
The staff was curtious and fun to talk to. The location is GREAT. I stayed in the "cottage" adn it is an older structure, but clean and comfortable.
Again, remember, it's not a 5-star hotel. It is older. But I had alot of fun there and met some nice people that I will stay in contact with from now on.
I will go back again.
Are you kidding? – The only thing nice about this place is the location. Otherwise, watch out! They'll charge your visa in advance, but luckily they refunded it (after multiple phone calls and an e-mail). Research it first!!
I love the The San Vicente INN RESORT! Lovely place to stay, there used to be many tweekers before . They cleaned up the place and the rooms are rinovated and much nicer now!
I had a great time there . I `ll definitely go back there another time in the future!
