Our very first stay at this nice little hotel. Ample free parking, some of which is covered and the remainder not so. The staff at the check-in desk were absolutely the best. Friendly and not afraid to laugh. Yes laugh (a old tradition) Found the room to be clean as a whistle. I am doing the bathroom a injustice, very... More

Advertised as a 3.5 star hotel this place is a complete let down and disappointment. There are no Amenities the rooms are lacking (except the smell) bathrooms are tiny, they should have cut the hallways down by 8/10th and made the rooms bigger. Its not modern styling its just cheap, a square headboard over an awful bed is not modern.... More

My stay was very unique. The hotel is targeting and customized for JAPANESE business travelers. There's some staff speak Japanese. The complimentary breakfast was include a boxed bento with rice balls. They have a TV channel with Japanese language. I'm not surprised this due to located in Torrance, CA and close to Japanese market. The facility was under renovation and... More

I was living in Torrance at the time of my stay and checked in for an evening to finish an important project for work. The staff here is Japanese- and they cater mostly to asian businessmen- but spoke excellent English. There were some renovations going on at that time and I was warned there might be noise since my room... More

This is a quite unique hotel.....it serves to a certain group of Asians.. .Japanese.... Majority of the front desk staff that are Asian are 99.9% Japanese....they speak fluent Japanese...they thought I was one and greeted me in Japanese....it was kinda cool. The interior is quite decent - pretty clean and simple; rooms are clean, bathroom is a bit small but... More

Recently spent time in Torrance area for business. I was a bit skeptical of the property upon arrival because of the obvious age of the hotel. After checking in I found myself pleasantly surprised by the very clean and nicely updated rooms. The hotel obviously caters toward the Asian market, but that should not deter anyone from considering the hotel.... More

We were there for an event at a local venue in Carson, CA. Although nobody in our group had stayed here before, the hotel was only a few miles away from where we needed to be and was decently priced. The staff was very friendly and the property itself was quiet and clean. The property looked to be an older... More

This property was one style I had heard about in my learning about how hotels cater to certain groups. The Redac IMO caters to the Oriental market but opened their arms to all. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean but could have added a chair to relax in. The property is undergoing a remodel on the 2nd... More
