Would not stay at hotel again. The hotel and rooms are old looking and in disrepair. They appear to think carpet and paint is all there is to a nice room. Not much storage space in the room. One small closet. The frig is full of stuff they want you to buy so it is unusable. There is a used... More

We stayed two nights in this hotel in connection with a family wedding in nearby Palos Verdes. The hotel was situated right on the harbor. Our room faced the marina, and not the ocean. We asked for a 3rd floor room which had a nice view of the boats in the marina. The deluxe room was large with a sitting... More

Don't miss this fabulous experience--a balcony on the ocean, great service, and a beautiful, comfortable room. From the balcony, we saw hummingbirds, dolphins and California Sea Lions, who sang to us all night. We rode bikes to Hermosa Beach and the pier and had a wonderful meal in the restaurant. I can't wait to go back.

The staff is excellent. The lobby and lobby bar are beautifully decorated and a great place to hang out with others, or to have a relaxing drink in the evening. The toiletries provided in the bathroom are delightful!

I am so pleased that our staff was “excellent.” We are honored you choose our Lobby Living Room as your choice location for a cocktail, and to relax for the evening. Great tip! Oceanside accommodations are usually the favorites of our guests. Warmest wishes, Nathan N. More

I am so pleased to see that your enjoyed our “fabo” lobby. There is nothing I like reading more however than a review about friendly service.

Jerome was the best part of my stay. He had some great recommendations for nearby places to check out and was super friendly even though I asked TONS of questions. The room was nice and comfortable and I enjoyed the bar at your restaurant.

This hotel is conveniently located close to the ocean. The rooms are clean and quite nice if a little on the small side. There are bicycles available to the guests for use on convenient bike paths along the beach. It was very relaxing and we found the staff to be very helpful in answering our questions.

We only stayed 1 night, first thing you notice is the location which is nice specially if you want to go to the beach like we did. The room was okay, the customer service and staff was not good, I'd rate them as poor. Also didn't like paying $26 for night of parking which wasn't mentioned by the staff until... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with my family on Aug 10-13. Although the location was great, the room was small, not super-clean (dust on lamps, dirty spots on walls-especially near fixtures, and sheer curtains were filthy) and the air conditioning worked only some of the time. Additionally this hotel charges for WiFi (this was quite a surprise -... More

Cycling the beach path to a luxury beach hotel. A peaceful waterfront hotel away from the bustle of the boardwalk. Totally worth the extra money to have the ocean view with yachts and seals cruising past your room. The sunset was glorious and the views of Paolos Verdes a treat. With our upgraded suite we felt like royalty. A blissful... More
