We spent a week at the Beach House Hotel at Christmas. Our daughter lives in Manhattan Beach. The room was wonderful. It was more like a suite with a living area with couch, chair, fireplace and TV. There was a private balcony with a view of the beach. The staff were friendly. The hotel was clean and nicely decorated for Christmas. There were Christmas cookies and hot cider available all day. The location is great, on the beach but within walking distance of the town with shops and restaurants. The continental breakfast was the only thing that was lacking. There was cereals, bagels and toast. There only fruit was apples and (not ripe) bananas. There was nothing with protein such as yogurt or peanut butter. The breakfast was just OK. The Beach House Hotel was a great place to spend the holiday. We will stay here on future visits to my daughter.
