Let me preface this review by saying I am not by all means an elitist or a snob - the type of person who posts reviews on this site criticizing three-star hotels for not having five-star service. I've stayed in lots of Days Inns and Motel 6s. But Extended Stay America at Harbor Gateway in Torrance is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in.
For starters, bring shampoo - the rooms don't have any.
Secondly, the rooms are only cleaned and made-up twice a week. This is the only hotel in the world where I had to make my own bed. Motel 6 makes my bed and gives me fresh towels.
The beds were hard. The recliner was very uncomfortable. The room smelled funny, although I think it was the cleaning products and the smell dissipated after the first day here. The TV, at 13 inches, is small, but then so is the room. Some of this could be forgiven if the rooms were super-cheap. But they weren't.
The only positive about this hotel was that it was close to the family we were visiting. Since that's irrelevant to anyone not related to me, I say avoid this place like the plague.
