Great wee hotel.Good sized rooms, although a little shabby,but that was acceptable considering how cheap the rooms were. Location was excellent, five minutes from the airport, staff are very friendly and helpful. Free parking available. All in all a good, basic, no frills hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed on September 2013. The staff was super nice and friendly, the room was big and comfortable. not the cleanest i've ever been to but was not dirty either. Great location if you have a car (2 minutes driving from LAX)

We booked this hotel after ready reviews on Trip Advisor (for a budget) and we thought it was great! Reading some other reviews people have commented on it being a bit 'shady' & I won't disagree.. But you certainly don't feel unsafe there! The staff were extremely friendly & helpful, we had a swim in the pool which was really... More

Could not wait to get out of this hotel! Staff are friendly, that's the only good thing I can say about this hotel. Felt very vulnerable and afraid during our stay, it seems not only are there hotel guests staying here, but some very dodgy residents! Not the cleanest hotel I've ever been to,quite grubby. There were a few restaurants... More

Need a rental car as it is about 20 minuets from Venice Beach, area is a bit rough but the hotel/motel is surrouned by a wall, small pool but it is a pool. Worth paying for the upgrade, I had a very large room, King bed and it was old but very clean. Friendly staff, parking included.

We stayed at the Sea Rock Inn for one night during a long trip in the US. We basically found what we expected, a decent place to spend one night. Beds were clean and comfortable, the bathroom needed a good makeup (the bathtub was obviously quite old) and the room's light system needed stronger bulbs. The price was adequate to... More

The rooms were actually pretty nice and I have no complaints with the beds. The only thing that needed work was the bathroom. It needed a good cleaning and even after running the shower for 20 minutes no hot water ever came. This rating is based on the price. For the price it is a decent option.

After a panic attack of almost having to sleep on the streets for the night with my two other friends, we finally made it to the Sea Rock Inn. We booked it last minute for Anime Expo 2013, and it was all of ours first AX, and relatively first time in LA (or more so, outside of LA) We were... More
