I booked a room for my brother an his two children and myself. Very disappointing! The window that opened in the front room had no screen. Kids could fall out very easily, the bedroom was back towards the alley and was loud all night long. The carpet was really dirty and the comforters were really dirty as well. The ceiling... More

I last stayed here fifteen years ago and back then the Sea Sprite was over due for upgrades and maintenance. However the room was clean and comfortable and on the beach. Fast forward to September 2014....I cannot beleive L.A. County and the City of Hermosa Beach allow this hotel to remain in business. The place is unsanitary, and an eye... More

Hotel is located right on the Strand and about 20 feet from the beach. It is in need of some updating and maintenance but prices of other nicer beach hotels are in the $300-400/night range vs $150-$200 for the Sea Sprite.

Worked for a family looking for a hotel on the beach. The pool was too cold for the little ones, and some smokers made walking the halls annoying, but the people were nice and the room was more than adequate.

This motel is not the fanciest place around, but it certainly offers the lowest rates of any comparable places on the strand. I've stayed in most of them down there on business trips, and have come to rely on the Seasprite routinely. They seem to have a good number of types of rooms to choose from, some with very impressive... More

This is an older facility that is maintained well. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice family run place. Book early in the summer. The rooms go fast. Great location for the Fiesta Arts fair for Memorial and Labor day weekend.

My wife, 2 year old daughter and had an enforced stop over in Los Angeles & found the Sea Sprite motel after some last minute shopping around. The location, about 30 seconds from the beach, cannot be faulted, and it was an easy stroll to shops or along the beach up to Manhattan Pier. Unfortunately, the motel itself was a... More

What a lovely spot. The Sea Sprite was like a home away from home but with a fabulous beach front thrown in. It must be one of the best places to stay in in L.A. being right on the beach ,with LAX just down the road, and all the best bars and restaurants next door.We were lucky enough to have... More

If you're looking for 1,000 thread count sheets and 4-star room service, head to Santa Monica. If you want a clean, comfortable place right on the beach close to the bars and restaurants of Pier Avenue, the Sea Sprite is your place. You can stay in a teeny-tiny room in the annex that's all bed, a standard 60's-era room in... More
