“Excellent value for a beach city hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I have stayed here several times, most recently this weekend. Each time I got great service at the front desk (thank you Sarah), a very nice, clean room with the usual amenities and a very reasonable price, even at the last minute.

The location is just OK. It is quite a long walk to the beach (but doable for adults and older kids). Other then that it is a great location, I suppose.

The breakfast is pretty basic and I'd only use it to grab some fresh fruit or toast. There are just too many good places down near the beach or over in Manhattan Beach a couple of miles away to even think about starting your day this way.

Nice coffee in the room, good beds and nice quality towels. And wifi. Slow but workable.

And one more thing. I sort of have a fetish for good shower heads :) and this one was great.

Thanks to management for a nice stay. I'll be back.

My husband and I have stayed at the Hotel Hermosa twice now and both times have been very pleasant. This past Sunday absolutely exceeded our expectations. One of the reasons that we came back was because of their awesome Jacuzzi that had superb jets that help those of us with aches and pains. This day it was not working and the water was cold. We informed Jonathan at the front desk and he immediately took action. He found us a suite that had it's own private Jacuzzi in it and it also had an ocean view. Needless to say my husband and I enjoyed the rest of our stay at the Hotel Hermosa! Thank you Jonathan and to the staff of Hotel Hermosa for taking care of us and for allowing us to feel like we were on a second honeymoon!

The only thing Hotel Hermosa has going for it is its proximity to the beach/pier (7 blocks) and free parking. The hotel has not been updated in the slightest since the late '80s. There are much newer/nicer places in Hermosa for the same price that are just as close to the beach.

Dear Carolf4tv

Thank you for staying at the Hotel Hermosa, we agree that our location is ideal and we look forward to enhancing the property in the coming months! The hotel was recently purchased by Pacifica Hotel Company and our design team cannot wait to bring Hotel Hermosa in line with all the other properties that Pacifica owns. We are a great value for the area and the courtyard has some beautiful views that can be seen from many of the rooms. We look forward to welcoming you back!
