“Near the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

This place was located in a great area. Next door was a combo El Polo Loco Chick/Foster Freeze Ice Cream place and across the street was a Jack in the Box. Down the street was a Target and Ralphs Grocery. Torrance Memorial Hos Urgent was conveniently nearby and only an hour visit, 20 min across and down the street was Manhattan Bch of which I walked almost all 13 days. Variety of restaurants within 5 to 10 mins. The bkst would have been better w/waffles or even wheat toast for their selections. The covered FREE parking, microwave and refrig was a big plus. The desk people were very kind and helpful for most part. My 2 teenagers were bummed cuz the 1st couple of days the jacuzzi was broken. The sauna was never fixed during our stay even though the desk said it would be only a couple of days. We were placed in very nice quiet corner room. The room was a bit outdated, especially the carpet but for most part we were very comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room as we had a good experience and placement

Location was great. Rooms were a nice size for our family of 5 - loved having the adjoining rooms with two bathrooms, however, the carpet was FILTHY, noisy corridor (could hear every door opening and closing), the spa didn't work the entire 8 days we were there and there was no way you could sit around the pool. The staff was excellent, helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very average, would have liked it to have some healthier options and maybe waffles for the kids.

Room Tip: Rooms on the backside are away from street noise and corner family suite is very nice with a large f...

Large rooms, but need new carpeting. The staff was so great...friendly and helpful, but the hotel is dumpy. Large bathroom, but the wallpaper was coming off, needed repair. Sauna and spa were NOT working and the sister hotel next to it (The Wave) had no working sauna either. The continental breakfast was fine and the staff kept it well stocked and clean. This is an affordable hotel for the area with free covered parking and seemed to be in a fairly safe neighborhood. They offer some wonderful hotel amenities...soap, toothpaste, iron/ironing board in bathroom, safe, microwave, refrig and coffeemaker, but the rooms need to be updated. But then...the prices will go up!

Room Tip: Ask for a room off Sepvuleda Blvd as it is a very busy street in the a.m. Rooms in the back are pre...

We stayed here 5 nights over the Memorial Day weekend and found it to be a fairly safe place with no low life types in surrounding area. The rooms were spacious enough and clean. Free covered parking and elevator. The continental breakfast was enough and the room had a nice view of the main street. Water didn't smell of heavy chlorine like the other LA places we've stayed. No pets. I would highly recommend this hotel. We had a king bed and I didn't feel any movements. Slept really good. Nice pool and jacuzzi. Not a whole lot of traffic when getting out from the hotel. We had a small refridge and micro wave that I didn't see listed on the hotel's website amenities. Front desk staff was very helpful.

Aloha!

Room Tip: Most rooms are going to be the same. I would take a 2nd floor rm. People slam their doors, you going...

For a few days layover in LA enroute to Hawaii this was the perfect hotel. Great price for the area, good beds, clean, good towels and linens. Our room was away from the main road - facing the pool area - the result was an extremely quiet room. The rate includes a continental breakfast. The staff are most helpful. The parking garage below the hotel is most convenient.

About 1 mile to the beach. Limited breakfast. Older but clean. Staff was nice enough. Pillows were awful.. Free airport shuttle was convenient. Pool was ok. For the price it was good but call hotel direct cost may be cheaper.
