TRAVELLERS BEWARE!!! A $250 charge on our cc after our stay. We were accused of smoking in our room and covering the smoke detector with a plastic bag. My wife and I have NEVER SMOKED, nor did we cover the smoke detector. Hotel said they have pictures...we asked for them to email photos to us four days ago...still no email. A few other reviewers on Yelp have listed similar phantom charges to their credit cards. Spoke with mgr Judith, who was very polite and promised a return phone call/email I later than noon today, after she spoke with general mgr. Four hours after her promised deadline, absolutely no communication from Redac. We were planning to day once/month repeat stays at the Redac until the pandemic eases, to visit the granddaughters in Torrance. For a bogus 250.00 charge to our credit card, The Redac lost a minimum of 10-14 nights of lodging from us, and now I hope others who read this post. On the positive side, the room was clean and comfortable. If admit their mistake and refund our money, I will gladly edit/rescind this post.

After weeks of trying to resolve an overcharge on their part, even when Hotwire confirmed the over charge they refused to reimburse the money owed. They used my credit card without consent. I had a nice stay but it is not worth being ripped off.

I could have given this hotel a decent rating, but they charged me for the breakfast buffet for 9 days, even though I didn't request it and didn't eat it. Then they promised to take the charge off the bill but never did. Very dishonest. What hotel wants to force you to pay for services not received? And then refuse to give you a credit? Another problem is that the floor is too thin. The upstairs guest kept waking me up at night when they walked around. The carpet is ugly, too. It makes the hotel look dingy.

We booked this hotel because of the reasonable price (we needed a room for 6 nights), the fact it had a fitness center, and the pictures looked like a cute boutique hotel. This place is NOTHING like the pictures. I cannot understand how this hotel has such high ratings. Everything is old and outdated. The nightstand in our room was worn and chipped. The whole hotel is in serious need of some fresh paint. It felt very dirty. We decided to just suck it up and on the first night, we couldn’t watch a specific Christmas movie on tv because there were parental controls and no one knew the code. After asking twice, the front desk finally sent someone but all he did was unplug the tv and turn it back on. It didn’t solve the problem. We went to bed frustrated and annoyed. We also didn’t sleep because the hotel is SO NOISY. We were on the second floor and the people above us were up and walking around all hours of the night. We also could hear our neighbors. In the morning we headed down to the fitness center only to discover than neither treadmill worked, which was extremely disappointing. The second night we returned to our hotel after a lovely day with family on Christmas and our room smelled HORRIBLE. The window was even wide open but it wasn’t coming from outside. The fan/air conditioner didn’t work either. Once again we didn’t sleep due to the noise upstairs and around us. We cancelled the rest of our stay and went elsewhere. This hotel is one of the top 5 worst hotels we’ve ever stayed in.

Location: hotel is right off the Western Ave road so it can get a bit hard to go in and out during commute time. There are plenty or parking around hotel ground so I never had any issues. Restaurants, markets are near by but I don't recommend walking there. There are residential houses across the street so if you get the street facing rooms then it can be loud. Hotel: lobby was very nice. Service was very good. I got the second floor room, however the room on top of me was loud and walked around. Not hotel's fault but absolute distracted my sleep. The room was spacious and decent in size. A fridge was included. There was a bidet toilet! Loved it. Overall, I would stay again for the cleanliness and the cost. Hotel:
