Right on the beautiful Hermosa Beach. Steps from the strand. Walking distance to tons of shops, restaurants, and bars. Perfect white studio rooms. Amazing tub and shower. Couldn't go wrong with this place if you have the money to spend.

The Beach House is where you want to stay if you are traveling and seeking a sun drenched ocean front room. Our room was very clean, up to date, and filled with numerous amenities, including a refrigerator, silverware, small stop stop, two flat panel televisions, gas fireplace, and more. With one day left we are sad to go. The hotel was very accommodating and providing a free of charge Pack and Pay for our four month old.

The continental breakfast is a little on the light side, but there are other local options. And, while you may be concerned about noise from The Strand - the beach boardwalk - we did not find it to be too loud during our April stay. I mention April because there may be a far busier season where guests could be more significantly bothered. We felt it added a bit of California life to the stay with the skateboarders, rollerbladers, cyclists, etc.

The staff were entirely helpful offering suggestions for restaurants and even making reservations for us in one case. When you come and go they offered a "have a good day" and a "welcome back" each time. We didn't use the spa services or other amenities in the hotel, so we can't comment on those.

The area and beach were very clean. I enjoyed walking on the boardwalk and smelling the ocean air. There are lots of places to eat and drink. A good location for the hotel.

The employees were friendly, but general manager was disappointing and unprofessional!

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side just have a little view of ocean. Very confusing, ocean view room to ocean...

Wonderful hotel and can't beat the location. The room easily accomodated our family of 4 (2 being teenagers). I had been concerned about the comfort of the sofa bed, but the kids said it was quite comfortable to sleep on.
We also had an oceanfront view and enjoyed watching various volleyball games from our balcony.
Microwave and refridgerator were nice to have, as well as dishes/glasses and silverware.
Hotel is around the corner from Pier Ave where lots of restaurants and shops are located. We typically ate lunch there, then drove the 5-10 minutes to Redondo Beach for excellent seafood.
Continental breakfast included cereal, fruit, coffee, bagels/crm cheese and various pastries. I liked that breakfast was available until 11am since we like to sleep in while on vacation.
Would definitely stay here again, just wish the weather would have cooperated more :(

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor oceanfront. Sun hit the balcony about noontime, perfect for sunset cockt...

What a surprise in my own Southern California backyard! Ocean front room added to the feel of actually being right on the beach. Loved using the fireplace as one day it was cloudy and very windy. Room had what we needed, clean, staff friendly and helpful, beach chairs provided, walking distance to restaurants, and continental breakfast had all you needed to start the day. Yes, there were dings here and there but it didn't detract from the view and location!

Room Tip: Third floor ocean front great! If you will be on the beach all day, any room would do!

Beach house is a perfect location. You are on the beach or the strand in 30 seconds. The room was clean and well appointed. The staff (front desk, valet and housekeeping) were all friendly and helpful and it was nice to have beach chairs, beach towels, volleyballs and even sand buckets and shovels available for use at no charge if we wanted them. The only negative thing I can say is that I thought the breakfast was lacking--it would have been nice if they had yogurt or hard boiled eggs--lots of carbs, but not much protein. But that is really a very small negative to an extremely positive experience. I will for sure come back to the Beach House and stay again and I will recommend it to anyone I know traveling to the Hermosa Beach Area.

Hermosa Beach is a fantastic place. The hotel is good, very well located. A little bit worn out. It would be good if they could refresh rooms and bathrooms, it's clean though.
We had a total ocean front in the first building on a high floor, and I think it was worth it. It was amazing!
All in all I would come back because of the location, but would prefer if they could refresh the hotel before. It really needs some updating!
Staff was ok but it seemed that they were quite bored working there. Difficult to see a smile. Breakfast is a joke, really. Tiny room with very few options. Good thing was that the best breakfast restaurant were just in front: "Good Stuff" You can eat healthy there, and it is delicious!
