We stayed just one night at the Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach but will definitely be back. Great location, just a short walk down to the beach, the boardwalk, and the Strand. Our room had a giant bathtub/jacuzzi, the bed was super comfortable, and the room was absolutely quiet and pitch-black at night. Our room wasn't too far from the groovy bar area, and we were worried that the noise might drift up and disturb us but no, super quiet and incredibly peaceful. Can't wait to go back.

Hotel experience was nice, great location, attentive staff, fine amenities. However, when I returned home from my stay I checked my credit card statement to find I had been charged several times from the hotel in an amount that totaled more than twice the amount from my initial reservation statement. I did not partake in any extra services during my stay. I am in process of resolving the matter, but the fact that I have to spend any time at all doing this is quite disappointing. If you have extra time to spend checking and resolving billing statements go ahead and book at Shade. If not, you might want to consider staying somewhere else.

This was a return visit to our favorite hotel in Manhattan Beach and once again, it did not disappoint. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Rooms are impeccable and location is perfect - close to restaurants and beach but also quiet at night. Food is delicious and great happy hour as well!

Amazing hotel, amazing location. Short walk to beach, nice balcony, great hot tub on roof (its a hot tub, not a pool, but it is not very "hot" which is a good thing). The restaurant in the hotel is fantastic and there are a dozen places to eat within walking distance (all great). The pier is 6-7 blocks away which is no problem. and the service here is amazing. Chelsea and the valet team were very friendly & accomodating the entire trip! The bikes are in decent working condition and definitely usable for the strand + going down to hermosa beach (a must). Overall fantastic stay. Hotels in california are 90% terrible. typically they are lacking in amenities, uncomfortable beds, in very touristy areas, they smell like mold, highly overpriced etc. I found all this out the hard way the past 2 trips visiting cali. but shade is a diamond in the rough at a fair price. Stay away from venice and santa monica and just stay here in the south bay
