Just an average hotel, room was clean, spacious, well presented. Breakfast is your basic cereal, toast and fruit, nothing special almost too much sugar for me. The hotel provided a free airport shuttle which was great only about 30mins from airport. If your nice to the driver he doesn't mind dropping you off somewhere as he makes his way to... More

This hotel is not the best, and not the worst. We spent 4 nights here. No complaints from us. Even though we were never here only to shower and sleep. Its a 15 min walk to the beach. The only thing walking back to the hotel is all up hill. We also went in the heated pool and the hot... More

Last minute unexpected trip to Los Angeles came up at end of month and we needed somewhere to stay that was inexpensive and we were leaving the next morning. I should have taken more time to read reviews first believe me. This hotel is basically falling apart. Nightstands and chairs were so wobbly we were afraid to sit anything on... More

If your plan is to visit California and see the attractions you won't be spending a whole bunch of time in your hotel, which in this case is a good thing. The websites photos of this hotel are very misleading. It is basically a motel 8 with some minor upgrades. The staff were really nice with the exception of one... More

This was our 4th stay at this small hotel. Great location with free underground parking. It's very basic, but nice enough. The continental breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly. The downside is that some of the public areas need TLC, such as sweeping the elevator floor. Our room carpet was in good condition, but stained, and the... More

First room had mold on tile and in the carpet. It reeked of disinfectants. About 2AM the toilet flushed and a glow appeared. When we tried to leave the carpet bunched so the door wouldn't open. Had to get help to get out. The second room had a hot tub that wasn't working. About 2AM the mini fridge opened and... More

The night clerk is @$$! He was so rude and got all upset and loud because I couldn't understand his thick Indian accent! The rest of the staff was friendly. The room keys needed to be re-coded because it stopped working after a day. The room, itself was okay. It was large, pretty clean, but old. The included breakfast was... More

We've used The Wave a few times over the years, mainly as a place to stay after arriving in LA from overseas, before we head off somewhere else. The location is very handy, 15 minutes from the airport, and about a 15 minute walk to the beach where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. There's also a Target next... More

This isn't a five stare resort hotel. It's a simple motel, with basic rooms. It is however inexpensive, located very close to downtown Manhattan Beach and right on Sepulveda. It's convenient to much of the rest of LA without being right downtown. It's the basics - clean rooms, TV, comfortable beds. The staff is polite and helpful. The pool and... More
