Quiet place with very friendly staff

Lovely place to stay. My husband and I began our CA vacation at the inn and it was a wonderful experience, overall. The welcome flowers and cookies were a nice touch. The staff were friendly and the food was plentiful. The room layout was a bit awkward, with the four poster bed posts obstructing the television view (the only "comfortable" place to view the news was from the bed). Of course, I would ditch the television all together, but my husband HAS to watch the bad news, as I call it.

Wish I could've stayed longer!

This was our first time staying at a B&B and it will not be the last. The staff were delightful and the ambiance was warm and inviting. The only downfall was that we checked in late and had to catch an early flight so we didn't have the opportunity to experience the deliciousness we smelled baking the night before. We really enjoyed the freshly brewed coffe and baked goodies that we were able to take to the airport. We look forward to our next B&B treat!

increíble, perfecto, maravilloso

Superó mis expectativas con creces, y eso que eran muy altas, pero el lugar es encantador, todos los detalles perfectamente cuidados, el trato exquisito, un 10 sin dudas.

New Year's at the Inn

We had a lovely 3 night stay at the Inn at Playa Del Rey. It was charming, comfortable, luxurious, inviting, and friendly. The staff is so helpful. This is a gem in a rare natural area just minutes from LAX. This was a wonderful place to stay and relax.

We'll be back!

We chose a room that overlooked the Ballona Wetlands. For us this was the perfect way to have a beautiful view and a peaceful environment while being close to the ocean (a short walk or bike ride; bikes provided by the Inn). Overall, this is a well-run inn that is elegant and informal at the same time. All spaces, public and private, are comfortable and inviting. We agree with a reviewer who described the Inn as having the feeling of "a home away from home". Breakfast had a good variety of hot and cold choices, and all of their food is nicely presented to include homemade baked goods. The text and photos at the website for the Inn at Playa del Rey provide an honest and accurate description of its amenities and services. We loved it and would not hesitate to choose the Inn at Playa del Rey for future visits to Los Angeles. Evanston, IL / January 2014

Wonderful location and friendly service

Very much a seaside decorating theme, this is appropriate because it is adjacent to the Bellona wetlands nature preserve. There is a spotting scope and binoculars provided in the living room, as well as bird books. The food is very good, especially the baked goods, which are available around the clock. The staff willingly arranged for a taxi for my early morning flight. I would certainly stay there again!

Close and quiet

Close to the airport and very easy to get to, and yet absolutely no airport noise. Easy to get into town from there. The beach is a short walk away and not crowded at all. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good and plentifull.

Amazing place! Such a retreat in a the middle of LA. GREAT food! And homemade chocolate chip cookies on check-in. Staff are amazing.

Lovely place, few minutes from the beach

This was our 3rd trip to LA and we felt like trying something different than the usual conventional, impersonal hotels. We picked up this bed & breakfast after a long and tedious search on the web. First thing that caught our mind as we got in was the delicious smell of the cookies baking in the oven! There's always something being prepared in the open kitchen just behind the front desk and it always smells great! The staff is very welcoming and helpful, breakfast is delicious and the whole place is furnished with taste! The living areas are beautiful, warm and cozy and each room has its own personal decoration that is different from the others (we had the chance to take a look at several rooms during our 5 days-stay). The interior designer did a great job! In addition to all this, you have a free, private parking and you can borrow bikes to ride on the beach which is 5 minutes away. This inn has it all, great location, perfect amenities, pleasant staff.
