“Good hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The hotel provides parking and was more reasonably priced than others in the area. It has a spacious lobby and the check-in was very easy, with our room ready well before the usual check-in time. The rooms are modern and spacious and our room facing the car park at the back was very quiet. The complimentary breakfast was great. The hotel is just a gentle 10 minute walk downhill to the waterfront, and then another 5 minutes along the waterfront to the bars and restaurants. Hermose Beach is a great place, we stayed for 2 nights and could have stayed longer. We walked along to Redondo Beach which is about a 20-25 minute walk in the opposite direction and weren't impressed. I would definitely return to Hermosa Beach and would stay at this hotel again.

check in was good. good quiet room. Breakfast was not to bad. Bed was good, pillows a little small. No problems. The beach is within walking distance. There is good parking at the beach but hard to find a spot if it is a busy weekend. Lots of food around. They do not have any shuttle service anywhere. The service desk was helpful with suggestions. Would stay at this place again. It was a little pricey.

This Holiday Inn Express is blocks from the beach and close to solid eating. Bonus too if you're a Anytime Fitness member (there's a really nice one blocks away). It's not the cleanest hotel I've stayed in and the service wasn't that great. We frequently were given only three towels despite having four in our room (and asking daily for that extra towel). We also requested room service to be complete before 2pm because we had to get ready for a wedding rehearsal dinner starting at 2:30. Hard to believe, but they couldn't deliver and we were stuck getting ready while they cleaned up. The breakfast's were routinely poor, as is the case with all Holiday Inn Expresses. Would it be asking too much for a little shredded cheese to fancy up the watery eggs? And don't get me started on the women running the breakfast buffet, I think she needed some more coffee. Anyway, you could do much worse but the reality is that this is just an average place. You're paying for location.

We stayed one night at the hotel, From the easy parking to the quietness of the large and confortable bedroom, everything was great value for the money.

We want to extend a very special THANK to Raven, who went out of his way, to help us recover a sweater that we had forgotten in the breakfast lounge. We called the hotel three days after departure, when we found out our loss. Raven kept on searching until he was successful, then he took the trouble to ship the sweater back to us. This is a really nice cardigan, we greatly appreciate the staff honesty, nowadays it feels really wonderful to find such a dedication and good service.

We thank the entire staff of the Hollyday Inn in Hermosa Beach ! We will be back.

I have stayed in this hotel over the past 14 years including a long term stay of over six months. The staff are always top notch and the property has been recently upgraded. The owner is a hands on manager and supervisor and all staff are well trained. Excellent breakfast and limited covered parking. Excellent access to beach and concrete pathway for walking, cycling or jogging.
This hotel is my preference when in Southern California for business or pleasure. Pool and spa are well maintained, with a limited fitness area and business computer access.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean are very quiet.

Clean hotel, friendly and helpful front desk, free parking, and 4 blocks to the beach. Room was spacious; ours had a balcony with table and 2 chairs. A little peek of ocean from balcony. Walk in 10 min to Hermosa Beach, and 5 min more to restaurants, ice cream, shops. Good value for location near beach. Free breakfast with many choices, and very good coffee.

I found the whole experience at this hotel to be very good. Just 20-30 min drive south of LAX, this hotel is not in the hubbub of downtown LA but just a few blocks from the beaches at Hermosa and Redondo. Check in was swift and efficient although I would request a room that's not on the side of the road as, although the road noise was not excessive, the sea facing rooms would have to be even quieter. Parking is free, one car per room which, in the States, is a real bonus. Complimentary breakfast is offered in a lovely buffet style dining area which offered pancakes, cereal, pastries, coffee, juice, etc... all very acceptable.
The standard of the room was excellent, well maintained, clean and serviced every morning by housekeeping. Nice widescreen tv with plenty of channels, iron, comfortable beds with choice of pillows, desk and a pleasantly large room. Oddly, no safe.
I have to say that despite the branding of an Express style hotel, this meets the standards and expectations of some rather more highbrow and expensive hotels I have stayed in.
Well done.

Room Tip: Ask for room not on the road side
