“Great in all regards...except for the internet connection!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I enjoyed my stay at the Sunrise: the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, and the location is excellent; and the price is quite good. The bad news? the worst internet connectivity I've ever had at a hotel. Since I was trying to do work while on road, having good access for email and web is important to me, and I was very frustrated at how poorly the so-called high-speed connection worked. To the Sunrise's credit, however, they instantly gave me a discount on my final bill when I told them about the issue.

Surprisingly nice Hotel. Desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and appointed well for a Best Western. We were in town for our son's wedding. Hotel was locared just inside Redondo Beach City limits. Rode our bikes on the Strand in Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach, which was a very short bike ride from the hotel.
Desk suggested we keep our bikes in the room overnight, which I felt was very gracious as some hotels frown on bikes in the rooms ( which I really dont't mind. We usually cable our bikes to the car rack ).

Breakfast was your typical Best Western waffles, sausage patties, scrambled eggs and carbo bombs. Coffee was surprisingly good. Afternoon cookies at the coffee station by the front desk was a special welcome treat. Warm cookies and hot coffee on a cold day....Yummy.

We did not use the spa.

If you are contemplatihg a trip to Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, or Redondo Beach and don't want to spend a truck load of cash on fufu hotels, drop by this place. It is short on glitter, long on hospitality.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a "Marina View" on 3rd floor. Sunsest are wow...

Year after year my family and I return to this spot only to be reminded of the fabulous location, service and cozy rooms. It's minutes from fun restaurants, The Redondo Beach Pier and The Strand that hugs the sandy beaches of Southern California for a couple of miles. The Strand is a runners delight winding along the beaches of Redondo, Hermosa, Manhattan and El Segundo.

The Sunrise has never disappointed in terms of our expectations of a Best Western, a modest hotel with a bit of beachy charm. The rooms are decently appointed (plenty of thick bath towels and good toiletries), there's FREE parking (unlike the Crown Plaza across the street) along with a continental breakfast (included with very fare rates). We can usually find apples, cookies, coffee and tea in the afternoon for a quick snack which is a hit with my boys.

They even located a couple of beach toys for us to borrow for an afternoon. The beach cruisers are a nice surprise and reasonably priced albeit a bit rusty, but that just adds to the charm. The staff always smiling and quick to provide help reminds us why we keep returning.

I would definitely recommend The Sunrise in Redondo.

Hotel was well located across from the beach. We walked along Redondo Beach then later up the beach sidewalk to Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. We arrived at 9am off a cruise ship and staff at the hotel were very accomodating by providing us with an early check-in. Rooms and hotel are a bit dated but very clean and very quiet and comfortable. Lots of restaurants within walking distance - go to the Chart House just up the street for a great Happy Hour and to watch the sunset. Conveniently located near LAX but far enough away so aircraft arrivals and departures are not an issue.
