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.

Made this hotel out to be something it is not!! The website is nothing like the REAL THING.... Quality of breakfast is bad, pool and "SPA" is nasty, rooms are very out dated and crappy. only some working lights in the room, broken door handles, mold, the most uncomfortable beds, and the floors felt like it was Seeping water. Never... More

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
