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

I want to be fair, and write a truly accurate review. First, I found the staff to be great, front desk and breakfast staff were great. The hotel is located in a somewhat good location. I thought it was closer to the Manhattan beach, but not so. I did jog to it the two nights I stayed, but it is... More

I stayed in the Wave Hotel for one night on Oct 5. When I departed the hotel in the morning on Oct 6th, I noticed the pipes that were fixed to the ceiling of the hotel parking were leaking. At first I thought this was water and I had a docters appointment so I had to go. After I returned... More

Chris, Milton and Eddie run the front desk and were all very pleasant and helpful during my 2 day stay.Yes, I found some mold around the entry door but I told them and a maintenance guy immediately followed me to the room to see where and he wiped the areas clean with chlorox. The Wave is so perfectly located .6... More

Nice hotel, big rooms and great service, just what I was looking for. Employees helped me out with everything I wanted, the pool and Jacuzzi are great spots to hang with out and breakfast was good too.

My wife and I needed a place to sleep for a night after a trip from the East Coast. We weren't looking for frills and wanted something close to Torrance, where we had to pick up our car in the morning. The Wave fit the bill perfectly. It was reasonably priced (I booked it as part of an air/hotel package... More
