“Great weekend stay with family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Had a nice weekend stay here over President's weekend. Although hotel is not on the beach it had everything we were looking for. I did alot of research beforehand and also talked to friends who live in area. There were other hotels closer but lacked some things we specifically wanted. The hotel is close to beach (1/2 mile walk down Gould street or 1 mile walk via Pier Ave.) We stayed in room 318 which had a King bed loft with sleeper sofa in living room. It had 2 (albeit very small) balconies overlooking the courtyard with awesome views of the ocean. The room had a mini fridge and micro, 2tvs (one in living room) and one upstairs in loft area. The hotel had free parking (plus), free wi-fi, and free breakfast. A very good value considering the other hotels I looked at in area. The hotel also has a pool/hot tub (one of our requirements)! Pool was freezing (kids couldn't even get in it) but it IS February! The hot tub worked out great!

Pros:
Close proximity to beach, grocery stores, restaurants, etc.
All the free amenities plus mini-fridge and micro
Views of ocean
Front desk offered the use of beach chairs, towels and boogie boards ( or whatever those are called)!

Cons:
Very thin walls! Heard the guy next to us snoring and we did have some partiers on the other side and could hear their conversation all night long!
Sofa bed not the most comfortable. Our kids are 8/11 and very small so it worked for them but no adult would find it comfortable.
There is no bathroom upstairs in loft area (not a problem for us but just an FYI)

Bottom line: even with cons we would stay again.

Room Tip: If you get a Loft Room, request the courtyard view. Pool view puts you on the street side.

This was an excellent hotel for our stay in Hermosa Beach Ca. We have been there numerous times in the past five years and have passed the hotel thinking it would be so convenient if a hotel in that area was ever needed. Our son lives one block from the hotel and his wife's family was in from Sweden when we decided to join them. My husband and I stayed at the hotel over a long weekend and were thrilled with the services the hotel provided. Actually run into another couple that was visiting their son that weekend and decided to stay there also. Met them in the breakfast room one am and they too were impressed with the hotel and easy accessibility to everything in that area. The staff was very friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fine for our needs. The bus runs by the hotel and very convenient for going to LAX or Santa Monica and probably anywhere else in the area.

They overcharged my credit card by a few hundred dollars and it took weeks, a call to my bank and a report to the BBB to get it resolved. The GM NEVER called me back and the person who answered the phones (all dozen or more times I called) was not only useless in getting a resolution but completely lacking any custimer service skills whatsoever. The hotel is cheap and this is certainly a case of you get what you pay for....dated, musty rooms and TERRIBLE service.

Stayed one night at Hotel Hermosa on my way to Mexico after a long haul flight from Oz. Was the ideal place to rest and reset my 'clock'. Soaked up some California sunshine from the balcony in the afternoon and at night drifted off looking out over the Pacific while the distant planes arced off to their destinations. Had a wonderful night sleep in the bed from heaven - sooo comfy! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Candy was particularly generous giving me a beautiful bottle of wine to enjoy with sunset - much appreciated! Hotel is only a very short walk from the shops, cafes and beach and only a 15 minute taxi ride to the airport. All in all Hotel Hermosa is a terrific hassle-free place to stay in LA. Certainly it will be my regular stay for all LAX stopovers!

Room Tip: Recommend a loft room - fab views!

I've driven by this hotel hundreds of times and always wondered what it was like to stay there. It's on kind of a busy corner at the top of a hill overlooking the ocean with a view from Catalina to Malibu. This month I had the opportunity to experience it because my house was being worked on and my family needed to move out for a couple of days. My wife researched all the local hotels and determined this was the right one and we were not disappointed. Our rooms faced the ocean and had a nice balcony. I was able to work during the day, it was totally quiet, the beds are comfortable and the free WiFi is decently fast. In addition to the in-room coffee maker, breakfast was included, and for you waffle fans the self-serve professional waffle maker makes killer, giant Belgium-style waffles. Candy, the person who checked us in, was very nice and made sure our rooms were next to each other. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean

This hotel is modestly priced but the staff bends over backwards to give you a quality experience. The rooms are upscale, with top quality linens and furnishings. It is probably the cleanest hotel I have ever been in, with staff constantly cleaning everything in sight! The complimentary breakfast is generous. The location is lovely with a nice deck with a view of the ocean. The staff is extremely helpful and will do anything to make your stay pleasant.

Room Tip: The courtyard rooms are a lot quieter than the rooms facing the traffic, although there is good soun...
