“a little cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We took a 4 day three night break at the beach house. We had a great time. We reserved a Beach view room and were given a Beach Front room on the ground floor. I was a little concerned but am very very glad we took it. The only problem was that there is a walk way that lots of people walk, run, bike on in front of your room. At first it was wierd but after an hour it was kind of neat seeing a very diverse group.
The hotel is old but well maintained. The continental breakfast was average with the exception that you get to eat it looking directrly at the beach.

Volleyball is played between the hotel and the ocean. It was kind of relaxing to sit on the deck and watch people play and practice. There were many Pro level players practicing and they worked a lot harder than you might expect.

We walked the walkway (I think they call it the strand) a few miles one day and rented bikes the next day. We took the STAND all the way to Santa Monica pier the next. This proved to be a lot longer than it looked on the map. The ride was enjoyable except for a few miles that went thru traffic.

The biggest negative was the temperature. Since we usually go to the beach in Florida we were not expecting the temp to be as cool as it was. We needed jackets every evening. Oh yea, they have gas fire places in the room, and we used it every night.

Overall we had a good time staying at the Beach House. My individual ratings are not as high as I would normally give to a hotel because of the price. The Beach House cost for a night is higher than most I have stayed at so I think that there are things that they could do to get a hight rating.
With that said, I would still stay there again.

Room Tip: I would choose a beach front room on the second floor.

Beach House Hotel @ Hermosa Beach provided just the right blend of peace and tranquility while still being accessible and fun. I had the pleasure of staying here on the tail end of a business trip as a "treat" to myself and it was wonderful. The in room fireplace was so nice, as was the separate shower and bath. It was so clean and comfortable not to mention the great location. The Beach house is within walking distance of some great bars and restaurants. My only regret was not staying longer but I will makeup for that on my next visit. I can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: As a note, the ocean view and partial were all sold out so my room faced the back of someone else...

Perfect location and great rooms... we didn't get the oceanfront as they were sold out but the ocean views (room 319 or 317) are nice too because you can enjoy the people watching. The beach is just steps away and they had a nice complimentary continental breakfast. Definitely will come back.

Given the amazing vacation we had when staying at their sister facility at Half Moon Bay (HMB), we booked a week at this location in Hermosa Beach. I could easily summarize the experience as BLISSFUL.
Located right on the beach and the amazing 26 mile beach trail, this hotel brings you the consummate and almost opulent SoCal beach experience. We encountered no trouble finding the Beach House and check in was seamless--forget about early check in since few check out early here. You can take your chances on street parking but valet parking is secure, close and dependable and frankly, just one of those things you suck up. Clearly, the Ocean FRONT rooms are the most expensive. Ocean VIEW sometimes requires some neck work but honestly, the price is not that much more. And, yes, it is expensive here but I defy you to find a better property for this price or less in this area. The rooms are carbon copies of those at the HMB property, right down to the fireplace. A spartan little kitchenette (2 burner stove, frig, sink, glassware, silverware, microwave), comprehensive in-room stereo, great WiFi, and two TVs. The sleeping section is slightly elevated above the living section and was incredibly comfortable and adjacent to the well lit bathroom. We opted for the Ocean FRONT room (with its accompanying patio!) and were not disappointed—a stunning view awaited us at every moment. To their credit, beach noise was barely discernible when the patio door was closed. Breakfast was on the first floor and seating is inside or outside, adjacent to the beach trail. This offering is virtually identical to that at HMB—a carb-laden spread. If that’s not your thing, forage for staples at the nearby Safway—you have plenty of storage in your room. While the BH does not offer bikes, the cycle shop next door couldn't be more accommodating—be sure to tell them you’re staying at the BH for a 10% discount. We rented for the week, since we used the trail every day. The parking garage has a separate, locked area for your bike storage. There is a comprehensive fitness room and a hot tub. There are plenty of eateries and markets within walking distance.
This facility doesn't try to be anything other than luxurious, quintessential beach living.
Idyllic in every way! We would absolutely return here.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a pigeon ledge just under the patio--hard to describe but it served as a nesting are...

Spent the weekend at the Beach House and overall the experience was good. Room was spacious and clean, view was excellent, we ended up in a handicap room but didn't ask for that. Only one thing that made our experience not 100% great was the valet. We knew going in that the public parking garage behind the hotel was $32 for overnight and we didn't want to worry about metered parking. Hotel valet was $24/night. So picking the less expensive and more convenient option, we went with the valet. Our room was not ready to check-in when we first arrived so we kept our luggage in our car and went bike riding until our room was ready. When we got back around 3:00 to check-in, my husband asked the valet for our car key so we could get our luggage out of the car. My husband and I are the type of travelers that don't require a lot of attention. Our luggage is on wheels and we prefer to take our luggage to our rooms ourselves. But the valet would not give my husband our keys and said it was the "hotel policy" for them to go and get our car out of the garage (which was 50 ft away), drive it back up to the valet stand - all so we could get our luggage out and they could drive the car back to the garage. Ridiculous policy!! I was waiting by our car when the valet came to unlock the car and told the valet in no uncertain terms that he was not driving our car out of the garage! All we wanted was our luggage and I personally hauled both suitcases back to the valet stand where my husband was waiting because they wouldn't give him the car keys. We were wondering later if I had needed to get some sunscreen or jackets out of our car, would the valet again require us to have them drive our car to the valet stand, get the items out, and then drive the car back again??? Management needs to re-visit this policy!!

I've read the reviews, and everything people say about the location and beauty of this hotel is true. In addition, the service was absolutely extraordinary. Jasmine at the front desk was delightful and charming, and made sure that our every need was met. She manages a staff of friendly, professional people; Don engaged my four year old granddaughter every time she came through the lobby, and Alina offered excellent suggestions to make our stay even better. What a wonderful experience, I can't wait to return. S.Press

This hotel right on The Strand was fabulous! The rooms were super nice with great views of the beach. There are several shops and restaurants only steps away. The beach area was very clean and not too crowded. Bike rentals are available from several places right across the street, along with beach chairs, umbrellas, balls, etc. The staff was courteous and very friendly. Traffic was not bad on the weekends and you're not too far from anywhere. I'll definitely be back!
