I stayed at Grandview Inn while attending a weekend class. I needed a quiet place to review my material and prep for the next day of class. Grandview was the perfect spot to not only unplug but get the space and amenities I needed to totally focus on my class. I loved the little kitchenette, table and chairs - spacious bathroom, room, and balcony. I was on the 2nd floor (room 249) and had a beautiful ocean view. Also, although Grandview is close to the strip, it is just far enough away to offer peace and quiet.
I enjoyed a morning walk on the beach while my coffee was brewing in my room.
Wonder staff too!
*Although I've only been to Grandview once, I would recommend a 2nd floor ocean view room for the full beach experience. I am not sure if the 1st floor offers a view.
Thanks Grandview! I'll be back!

Room Tip: 2nd floor - room 249 was great!

Everything that is good about this hotel has been written here before. I recommend the location. You can not beat it. The renovation is great with one glaring exception.
The new ceiling lights are harsh and uninviting. In aiming for a more modern appearance management forgot that incandesent lights give off a warm glow and are easy on the eyes. I awoke in the middle of the night and turned on the lights. WOW! My eyes could not adjust to the harsh glare. I could not wait until I could turn then off again.
The old hotel had lamps either side of the bed that gave a warm inviting glow. The Beach House Hotel across the street is modern but retains the traditional yellow incandesent bulbs for a cozy appearance.
I recommend the management change the ceiling bulbs and add a couple of lamps that would make one look forward to coming "home" at night to an otherwise comfortable room. The cost would be minimal and worth it. Also a chaise lounge on the balcony with a foam cushion would be great. Overall the renovation was worth it.

Room Tip: I recommend the top floor ocean front. Great view and quite Well worth the extra cost.

We stayed for 5 nights in late January and early February. The hotel looks like it has been recently renovated with modern decor. The rooms are very spacious and include a microwave, bar fridge and coffee making facilities (not helpful for those of us who drink tea not coffee - an electric kettle would be useful!) The bathroom is small but this was never an issue - it is fresh and clean with a complimentary supply of toiletries, towels and a hairdryer.

The facilities are very clean and serviced daily. There is a small sunny balcony that faces the ocean although as we were on the first floor our view was of a rooftop...the ocean views must only be from the higher levels.

The reception for this hotel is on the first floor, not at ground level. There is an elevator as well as a luggage trolley for guest use.

If you have your own car during your stay please be aware that parking is limited in the undercover carpark and street parking is also limited. We came back late-ish (after 9pm) each night and there were no car spaces left in the hotel car park. On our last two mornings we got parking tickets for parking incorrectly on the street.

The hotel is in a good location - easy walk to the restaurants and shops in Hermosa Beach or to take a stroll (or run) along the beachfront.

We stayed for 9 nights from Christmas and over New Year.
Rooms are quite large with a large fridge, microwave & coffee machine, fresh coffee sachets every day.
Bath room is not heated but in a modern design as is the rest of the room.
Heating in winter is only by A/C inverter and quite noisy.
No breakfast in the hotel is not a problem as there are many cafe's within a couple of minutes walk that serve breakfast.
The position on a side street to the beach is good as is the off street parking. One evening I got a USD 55 fine fo stopping too long when the parking lot was full!!
Having only 17 rooms there is not much of a reception but who needs it.

Can't say enough about what a perfect location this is. Ask for a room with the ocean view! You have a perfect view with none of the noise. Rooms are newly remodeled and very clean - although not a lot of seating available. The beds are very comfortable and the management is very nice!
