…so I had to consider other options* – like the Wave Hotel, just south of LAX off Manhattan Beach, and which for the price was the absolute best value going. After a couple of hours’ research on the web, I found this via TripAdvisor and got a price from Bookit dot com which was well under a hundred a night... More

We were quite satisfied with the room at the rear of the hotel. Location was great for access to the beach and the other tourist attractions were about 1/2 hour away. Room was clean but the carpet needed cleaning or replacement. Large room . The basic bagels, cereal , coffee, juice for breakfast. But that went with the price which... More

If you are looking for luxury this is not the place. This is the perfect hotel if you want to be close to the beaches while being close to LAX and also have great access to all areas of West LA without having to hit the freeways.Rooms are just your basic rooms clean with only your needed supplies.Free ample parking...

Good price - good parking. It's clean and a few blocks to the beach. Within walking for some (our group) maybe not for others. Either way - who cares - you are in Manhattan Beach. The staff is friendly enough, and the breakfast is standard cheap fare. Again - if you are looking for a good rate at a clean... More

Decent priced hotel for the location. No extra frills but clean and decent free continential breakfast. Parking is free and convenient as well. Staff was friendly and free wi fi. Located not far from LAX or many other tourist attractions. Would stay here again at a decent rate.

Friendly staff who were helpful on every request. Large, comfortable room, and quiet after 10pm when the pool, and spa closed. Breakfast was good. There are reasonable places to eat close by, but definitely better places to eat on Manhattan beach proper (which is a nice 20 minute walk away). A good tour desk at this hotel, I was able... More

A very dated hotel near LAX. However the staff was friendly, rooms clean, parking free and the price most affordable. A simple continental breakfast was included. Manhattan Beach was about a mile away that included many favorable restaurants. The 25 mile Strand beach walk is a must do.

My husband and I have been using this hotel every year since 2007. We stayed again for 1 night October 16, 2013. We've noticed standards have been gradually dropping, but this year was the worst. Very disappointing. Duty Manager rude on arrival. Gave us a downstairs room (104) which was very damp and very smelly. Dirty room. Pubic hair on... More

If you're looking for somewhere to stay one or two nights that's close to the airport then this place isn't too bad. It has a free shuttle to the airport which is handy (otherwise you're looking at a $20-30 cab ride one way). In terms of the hotel, you get what you pay for, right? The room was pretty large... More

We had the king suite. All it needed was a fridge and microwave to make it perfect. The breakfast was lacking. Overall nice place. The hot tub was under construction and the pool looked a little green.
