Not a beach location but it takes a 7 minute drive to get to it. This hotel has an airport hotel feel ( my eyes hurt when I saw a whole bunch of that bright KLM blue crew waiting for their transport ).
The lobby is like a cavernous mausoleum, totally unwelcoming. When I checked in I asked the receptionist to have the LA Times delivered every morning but she said they do not do that although they deliver USA Today every day to all the rooms. It seemed like a limited service Marriott to me ( they also exist apparently ).
Room 648 had a view to the golf course but only later when I went to bed I heard the constant din of the lift engine room. A bit odd really as I was not on the top floor ( hotel has 7 floors ). happily I always sleep in all conditions but still I suspect it is not a good idea to have a room near the 648 number.
Breakfast service was somewhat disorganised. I also suspected the egg cook rather wanted to be somewhere else. Why they laid out huge ( well I know everything is big in the US ) white bread slices but provided an European ( small ) size toaster meant that a big part of the bread was sticking out. When I asked if some one in the kitchen could toast it for me this was done grudgingly.
Rooms are ok but need to be updated ( a typical Marriott problem ), beds are comfy as they have the newish Revive beds.
Parking is currently $ 15 a day excluding 8.25 % tax. No possibility to park on nearby street as not allowed between 2 am and 4 am.
Location worked for me as MB is a nice community with some nice bars and restaurants and near 405 freeway.
Another so so LA hotel in the price class I can afford but I will not give up my search.
