The worst hotel we have ever stayed in! We stayed here whilst on a fly drive, it was getting late and so we just called in when passing and they had one room left. When we opened the door to the room the first thing to hit us was the stench of smoke. It was disgusting and you couldn't breath.... More

One star for excellent location and free parking. Those are the only good things about this place. Our family of five arrived at 4:00pm. Check-in is at 3:00pm, but we were told our room was not ready, but that it would be ready in 30 min. The woman working the front desk said she would give us a discount for... More

I chose to stay here on a one night transit from NZ to the UK. Location was great and airport transfers worked well (make sure you have credit on your mobile to all from the airport for pick up) Rooms are a bit dates but clean, large and fine. Wifi didn't stretch to my room but was available in the... More

I knew going in, this was not a 5 star hotel. We needed a hotel in Manhattan Beach that had airport shuttle and I booked this one. Check in was easy. Our room was right outside the pool and I did notice noise in the morning, but had no issues at night. There is FREE Wi-Fi. Like others have stated,... More

Worst experience I have ever had at a hotel. Do not stay here especially when you could stay at the Marriott for a comparable price. The carpet is bubbling and dirty and so old. Nothing has been updated and is so disgusting they I didn't even want my daughter touching anything. I bought Lysol and sprayed the entire room down... More

Room Clean, but everything in the room was old (TV etc.). Carpet stained. Light over the hand/ wash basin not working. Aircon had visible dust in it, so we did not switch in on. Breakfast was very basic. Front dest was very helpful. Room was quiet. I thin the ads over sell the place. Unfortunately we did not know about... More

Let me start by saying that my boyfriend and I knew well before arriving at the Wave Hotel, that we were not staying at some 5-star hotel. With that being said, I think a number of reviews on here are a bit harsh and I do believe the staff at this hotel deserve better. Check in was painless. We purchased... More

Spent one night here last week on a 24 hour stopover at LAX and chose it because of the free airport shuttle service and its proximity to downtown Manhattan Beach and the Village Mall, both of which are an easy 15 minute walk away. It's a perfectly adequate for a short stay. When I rang from the baggage hall to... More

This is an older property located on a busy street. They have put some money into rehabbing the property, but it still feels a bit tired. Rooms are very clean. Road noise can be heard inside the hotel.
