Stayed here for one night for a quick weekend trip to the Venice beaches (it is only a five minute drive to the beach from here). The room was very nice and clean for such a great price. The owners were accommodating and kind. There is a heated pool with a grill. It's located right off a main road in...

Room was clean and the pool is nice staff provides place to grill out and charcoal as well. Property was surprisingly quiet even though it was on a busy road. There is a nice fence around the whole property so it feels like you are a little bit secluded. We were able to fit our four-year-old on the foldout couch...

We stayed here because of location, price, and reviews and we weren't disappointed. I do like motels over hotels but it's hard to find one in good shape. Well i can tell you this was in great shape!

We stayed here after reading good reviews online, as we like to stay at local businesses. The owners were so nice, the rooms VERY clean (seriously the cleanest room I've ever stayed in), and it was a delight to have a kettle, fridge, microwave, and coffee maker in the room. Just a few minutes from the beaches. Will stay here...

The young couple that run this Motel are a breath of fresh air in customer service and sincerity. In a business world where everyone has become just another number that is not true at this place and you will feel it. We stayed here because of the reviews and I'm glad we did.

We wanted to check out a different beach and decided on Venice. Found the Sunshine Motel via TripAdvisor and read reviews. We made our decision because of the good reviews and wanted to pay it forward. Excellent, very clean and you can tell the owners take pride in their motel. It wasn't on the beach, but was very close.

The price of the room was a great value. It's an older motel that has been overhauled and is meticulously maintained. The room was clean as a whistle and you can tell the owners take pride in the grounds of the property, too. Owners were very welcoming and offered that we should let them know if we needed anything. We...
