“Affordable place in a nice neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

The room was clean and smelled good. The microwave and refrigerator in the room helped us to save some bucks on dinners. The staff is friendly and helpful. Nice sourroundings, close to the pier and the beach. We liked Redondo beach!

My room is freshly painted, new carpet and immaculate. The folks at the front desk (relatives of the owner) are taking fantastic care of me! This is an old hotel, but you could not beat it for the price and, as I said, my room is in literally perfect condtion.

Room Tip: You can hear the traffic as this is an old hotel right on PCH - but it was more like "white noi...

We found this inn after trying a couple of others in the area with no luck with vacancies. We stayed here for 3 nights in the end as it was in a reasonable location and provided most things that we needed. It wasn't the ritz but the people were very nice and helpful and gave us a good price on the room for the area. It has obviously been recently redecorated so they would benefit from updating their photos to show this. TV and fridge in the room and hair dryer when asked for. We turned the fridge off overnight as it was quite noisy. Lovely powerful shower, although the bathroom did have a bit of a funny smell! We didn't have any problems with parking - there was always a space outside. We were at the back and didn't have any problems with noise. It's a very short drive to Rodondo beach and there is a few shops within walking distance.

Be prepared for a stay here- no shampoo, no hair dryer, and no coffee. What you do get is a small clean room, TV attached to the wall, small bathroom with a nice shower, small refrigerator, and a below the window air-conditioner. Try to stay in the back to avoid the noise on PCH. I was asked if I wanted clean towels, said "no" and I guess that meant that we didn't get the bed made or the trash taken. The rate was low and you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Try to stay in the back to avoid the street noise

Small clean room with a firm mattress! Four easy blocks from the beautiful Pacific! One mile to the south a small shopping village or a mile to the north the famous pier! We enjoyed our four nights here!

Small but nice. 25mins driving from LAX airport. Perfect if you have the flight early in the morning. Rooms are not so big but comfortable. You have TV and private bathroom. No minibar and safety box. The thing we didn't like was the fact it has few parking lots and if you return late you are forced to park outside. The staff was nice and helpful but they didn't change towels the two nights we spent there

ok, i'll start off by saying i never actually stayed here. that's the point of this whole review. after searching all over the net for a cheap place to stay in this area- this seemed to be the only hotel within the price range i was looking for and the location as well. i compared some travel sites for rates with booking.com saying "$70/night" and another site stating "$85"...i've never used booking so i wasn't comfortable reserving the room off of it. i went to pacific coasts website to try and reserve but the link was broken. sigh. not a surprise...
which brings me to the phone call....a very uninterested man with a heavy accent answered and i asked about rates- he stated "$95 a night".....i let him know i could get it online cheaper and he came back with "yeah..i guess...but we're very busy, booking fast" i asked if a deposit was taken for the room and he let me know that the WHOLE total would be billed to my card right away and NO CANCELLATIONS.....once again, i let him know that all over the net it didn't mention that the whole amount would be billed right away and there was several mentions of cancellations allowed up until 24 hrs before the reservation date. he replied with "oh we're very busy, no cancellations in july or august"......this phone call was turning into a mess. this guy was rude. bad first impression. i let him know we would not be bothering with this place and the conversation was ended. horrible customer service right off the bat. reserve at your own risk! better get major details from them before booking ANYTHING.
