      Not what you think (or want)
      Great, friendly and knowledgeable staff, however, this place needs a major update. This web-site says Men Only, this isn't true. Women were there. At first I was bummed that it was not clothing optional but once I got there, I was okay with that. San V, has great potential, but a long ways to go to get there. Thanks to some of the staff, that helped us get through our stay.

      Totally Gay
      Always a good time had by all @ San Vicente Inn. Parking can be a problem since it's In the heart of West Hollywood. Only a short walk to Santa Monica Blvd. :)

      amazing location
      I Booked it for a party week end in Weho. I booked the cheap basic room with shared bathroom. it did the job perfectly. Shared bathroom between 4 bedrooms, it was a nice way to meet the neighbours! The pool is heated and also opened at night : back from the club, a naked swimm was a blast! You cant get a better location than that. The night receptionnist was really helpfull for my friend and his car. I will definitely go back!

      Great place to lay out by the sun.
      Nice renovated rooms. Heated pool 24hours a day, great for my night swims.

      See women & children here now, and sad how they have let it run down
      This place used to be so great. Was a true gay men's resort. Clothing optional pool. Cruisey atmosphere. Really cute courtyard. Great location. This place has consistently gone downhill. The house across the street once had leather rooms. I think that whole building is now apartments. Some parts of the actual hotel are closed off now, probably rentals. There are constantly women going here now. There goes the nude swimming and jacuzzis! It was for sale a few years ago, and they said they were renovating. Apparently they have fallen on hard times financially. It's sad because this place could be so cute and be like a Palm Springs or Ft Lauderdale gay resort. Anyone want to give me a loan to buy it and make it good again?!

      This place has holes in the walls. The staff is rude. It is dirty and unsafe.

      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.

      A total mess.
      This place only has one thing going for it and that "location". It is just 1/2 block from Santa Monica Blvd. and you can walk to all the bars. The place is a total mess, dirty, not safe to stay there. Staff doesn't have a clue what is going on. Pool area, rooms, public areas are all a total mess. Goodwill wouldn't even take their furniture. This place is BAD. Just read the other reviews and take heed.

      Not worth trying
      I have stayed in this resort for about 5-6 times in the past 2 years. Each time when I return there, I would hope the never ending renovation would end. Instead of lifting the place, the renovation tears the place apart. There is no phone in the rooms any more, furniture is getting less & basic, yet they charge you top $. It is supposed to be a gay clothing optional resort, but women can be seen everywhere, leaving no privacy for the tenants. More than once, the place was rented out to shoot pornos, with actor & actresses "acting" in public, how intrusive! This place is so run down that I have decided not to return there any more. Save your $ & spend it on the Ramada Weho.

      One last chance for survival
      Like the Coral Sands, the San Vicente Inn have been a great place for wicked and enjoyable few days - in days past. I've stayed here about eight times over the last decade, but noticed a steady decline over the last three or four years. Apparently a new owner took over in late 2008. UNBELIEVABLY he has closed off the rear HALF of the property. The clothing optional pool, spa and steam room remain, as does the free continental breakfast. However on this 3-day LA stay I moved to the Coral Sands after the first night here - Why?... The tiny room's TV worked for about three channels only - and no porn. The shutters on the windows were falling out. The cheapest room was $100 night inc tax. The spa area had been ripped apart with all of the old decorations and nice lighting gone, water luke warm. Female cleaners are OK at cleaning but the cute all-guy cleaners in the old days kept the vibe alive! On the brighter side, the staff I encountered were pleasant and seemed eager to please - even though they could find a remote that worked for my TV - By the way, finding remotes to work for the umpteen different makes of TVs in the place is a memory I have going back many years! It seems incredible that such a magnificent block of land in such a great position and with such a great legacy has been let slide to such a degree - and so far the new owner seems to be making things worse. I really hope I'm wrong because this used to be my favorite place to stay in LA for many years! It gets one more try on my next visit.

      What a dissapointment
      I have stayed at this place a number of times over the years, however my last visit was the worst. They cancelled my booking (saying that I had cancelled it - neglecting to refund me my deposit). After finally getting a room (check your bookings a week before you arrive guys!!) The staff there couldn't care less and the place is just becoming run-down. Years ago, staff would sweep and hose all areas, plant new trees and plants and just generally keep the place in good repair. I even asked to speak to the owner (was there for a week, but never got a phone call). I'll give it one more go, maybe November of 2008.. and make my final decision.

    • Had lots of fun!
      I just recently stayed there for an eight day trip and what a time! There were hot men. The only down side to the facility is the parking and the room. I had a room which was huge, but had a tv w/ two channels and the room was just really outdated. Even with all that it was a great experience and I plan on returning again next year.

      Great gayborhood location
      We have been to this place twice. Not because it is beautiful or has great service, but because of its location. It is the only resort in the West Hollywood area and a couple of blocks from the gay district on Santa Monica Boulevard. The nicest words to describe accommodations are that they are “pretty clean” and sparse. It has a clothing optional pool, hot tub and steam sauna. Would we go again? Maybe. But it is definitely a walk on the more seedy and divey side of resorts.

      Expensive & Dirty
      Having stayed here for an enjoyable few days 6 years ago , I was extremely dissapointed with the standard of cleanliness recently. It was filthy and unwelcoming and expensive. Never again!!
