I have lived in the Southbay (S. Redondo Beach) but never stayed at the Ramada Inn, Torrance. Having come back to the area while apt hunting, I needed a comfortable & clean hotel to call 'base camp'. In this property I found it and while the overall hotel needs renovating, the rooms are large, it clean and problems get solved instead of overlooked. The property is in process of being renovated as this is being typed and believe it will be a higher rated hotel once it is complete. Kudos to Ben, Sandy and their staff; Marlene, Paloma, Nia, Rudy, Marciano and the housekeeping dept with only Maria the one I know, all are great. If a problem does arise they do their very best to parlay a positive solution as soon as possible & and fast as they can. Some things to pass along....1) larger fridge & add microwaves to rooms, 2) fans in the bathroom instead of the opening there now, 3) painting which is being done, 4) 86 wallpaper in rooms and paint instead and 5) redo carpeting or add pergo.
I would also amp up the breakfast, maybe waffles, eggs, bacon/sausage, fruit/yogurt....healthy:-).
Thanks very much for the 'home away from home'........
