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

If you are looking to visit a city that requires you to sleep for a few hours to recharge for the next day, then this is one place you can stay at. free wifi. Its relatively close to the airport, about 17 minutes drive, there are a few restaurants around this place with only el pollo loco open late. The... More

This place looks nice from the 1st impression until you walk in and get settled,it is disgusting! Mold in the bathroom, my husband had to wipe it down with bleach they provided but did not offer to clean for us, the whole room needed to be cleaned. They were not concerned about the mold. The office did not have info... More

Pro: staff friendly, pool good/clean, close to a beach, walk to target, free parking, free Wfii, free breakfast and convent to everything. Cons: Once we got into the room, the door was broke, the carpet smells and it was no iron board in the room and light bulb was out. Call the front desk and they did fix the door,... More

We are a couple and have been to this place in march. This place needs an upgrading for sure. The light switches are funny, dark smelly rooms, snails crawling beside the pool, towards the rooms, old dusty furniture and starchy breakfast. The only plus points are,near to the beach and airport, many restaurants and retail stores nearby. Regarding the price,... More

I've stayed at this hotel before it was called The Wave. Advertisements make it appear trendy but it's a bit run down, especially for the price. The staff is friendly and they have a decent pool and hot tub (never been in either) and the two stories of rooms surround it. The lower level rooms always feel 'wet' or damp... More

Made last minute reservation through booking.com app on my phone to stay at this hotel in the South Bay. The front desk person wouldn't let me check in early so i had to come back later. I was impressed with the cozy design of the rooms around the pool court yard and landscaping. The room was alright but nothing impressive.... More

We had a spacious room with 2 king beds for our family of 4. Very clean and good for the price with free parking and breakfast was included. There was a decent swimming pool for the kids. Location was near all you need and would recommend it. Quick 5 minute drive to the beach. Though walkable, it's about 20 minutes.

This is your typical beach town hotel. Old rooms and old decor. The room was spacious and had a small fridge. The bed linens were clean and I have definitely seen worse carpet. The check-in staff was friendly enough. As long as you keep in mind, that you get what you pay for, you will be fine.

I don't need to repeat my girlfriends comments from our horrible stay but want people to think twice before you book here!..I think Holiday Inn and Suites should make sure they are not affiliated with the Wave Hotel, as the old phone and garbage can still have the Holiday Inn and Suites name on them. Do not stay here unless... More
