“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

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.

The Beach House at Hermosa Beach came highly recommended by a couple of colleagues who had stayed there in the last couple of years. So, when the time came for a getaway to Southern California, there was no question where we should stay!

After a quick and painless check-in, we went up to our room which was in the east building part of the Beach House complex. While it's not something I'd usually mention in a review, the halls of the Beach House smell great - a bright, sea breeze scent sets the mood for just what type of place this is!

If we had it to do all over again, we would have splurged for the oceanside view as our Expedia special got us a courtyard view of the balcony across from us. Even so, the balcony felt private and quiet.

The room is way more than just a room -- it is a well appointed suite with a very comfortable bed, a nice living room (with a push-button-start fireplace!), two large televisions, and a phenomenal bathroom with separate bathtub-and-shower. We felt comfortable and relaxed during our entire stay.

The neighbourhood around the Beach House is great. Across the lane is "Good Stuff," a must-do breakfast spot with an oceanfront view. It's a good place to people watch and get fed. As well, Hermosa Beach Pier is a block away with lots of great food and drink options. Finally, Hermosa Cyclery makes renting a bike to cruise The Strand effortless (and Beach House guests get a discount!)

Hermosa Beach is a fantastic community, and the Beach House is an excellent base to enjoy it from.

Room Tip: Splurge for oceanside views!

Best accommodations on the beach. Great view with ocean front room. Extremely clean and top rate staff. If you're going to stay here well worth money for beach front room. Love the place. Restraints very close by within easy walking distance.

Selected this hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. From the very first time we walked into the warm and welcoming lobby we have enjoyed every minute of our stay. Our Ocean view room was lovely, absolutely spotless with luxury furnishings, the most comfortable bed ever and those extra little touches that just make you feel like you are somewhere special. The breakfast was great with a good choice of cereals, breads, cakes etc where you help yourself - all very relaxed which suited us down to the ground. There is a fantastic selection of shops, bars and resaurants within a few minutes walk as well as a cycle hire shop, easy access to the beach and the pier. A really good base for visiting the surrounding area with helpful staff and lots of extras - wouldn't hesitate in recoomending.

My husband and I stayed here the first part of November. The hotel location was great. We were right on the beach. The strand was right outside the Hotel. Beautiful for a walk or run. Rooms were very nice, comfortable bed, walking distance to shops and restaurants. The staff was very professional, accomodating, and friendly. Will definitely stay here again!

We recently stayed here for a trip for the Oregon/USC football game. This is our new "go to" place to stay. Located right on the Strand, on the beach. Near the Pier, restaurants and excellent access to walking beach. The staff was outstanding front desk and the valet team. They are customer first oriented. They also have beach chairs that you can take to the beach and chill. Rooms are great size, continental breakfast is good with nice, simple patio seating. We had 4 couples stay here and everyone left happy and impressed. Slam dunk place to stay

Room Tip: We went to a partial ocean view room which worked out fine. If you want a complete ocean view then...

My wife and I stayed here in October for a little weekend getaway.

I seriously debated the 4 rating, because the shower had a bit of mold growing in it. However, the rest of the room, the view, the Aveda soap products, the fireplace, the stereo and overall atmosphere were very conducive to a relaxing stay.

We walked everywhere in Hermosa for dinner and to shop as the hotel is conveniently close to restaurants and stores at the pier. We even walked along the beach path down to Redondo for lunch.

Room Tip: If you want a full ocean view, be sure to ask for it when booking. This hotel has two buildings, an...
