Honestly, rolling up to this motel I was a little sketched out. Hermosa Beach is a lovely area, but a cheap motel on the beach I was thinking that it was going to be icky inside (we needed a place to crash after a long day and our other plans for the night fell thru). The rate was good, the check in was fast and efficient. The front door of the room is a sliding glass door, like something that would be on a patio. It was a little hard to get the door locked on the inside, but finally I did. The room was VERY clean.. there's a small refrigerator, microwave and tv in the room. This is definitely not for people looking to lounge comfortabley inside all day but the beach is literally right out the front door. Awesome! The room got really hot, instead of putting the a/c on we cracked the "front" sliding door. The curtain over the door didn't cover completely, so people walking by could definitely look in and see us in bed... eww. We were on the 2nd floor, so that was good, but walking to and from our room we could see into other peoples rooms too (and people laying in bed). There were plenty of towels and the bedding was nice. This is definitely a good place to crash. Oh! and we had two cars .... 1 free spot comes with the room and the front desk allowed us to rent an additional spot.
