Reviewed September 6, 2010

It is a very nice hotel for the price in a great location. It's a fairly easy and pleasant walk down to Redondo Beach and the many restaurants and activities along the ocean. The nearly complete renovations are quite well done. I've seen many older hotels that have had poor renovations (like plastic/fiberglass bathtub and shower inserts) but not here. Parking was great. No complaints about the breakfast either, there was something for everyone's tastes. My only complaint is that the pool is described as "indoor" and it is only partially indoor. One entire side wall of the pool area is made of open screen cement block (like they used to have all over the front of Caesar's Palace) . The problem was that chilly ocean wind was whipping into the room when we visited making it quite cold and unpleasant there even though the pool temperature was itself fairly warm. Basically, when that wind is blowing, you freeze when you get out. Inasmuch as the indoor pool was my primary criterion for selecting this hotel, I felt a bit deceived when I arrived, but since everything else about the hotel and its location was so much better than expected, it did not bother me too much and I did not register any complaints. I just wished I had known beforehand, as I would have reserved elsewhere. But if the indoor pool is not an important issue for you, you can't go wrong staying here. It's a great value. As a side note, having a CVS on the next block was really convenient and dinner at the nearby and very popular Cheesecake Factory down by the beach was surprisingly very enjoyable.

This hotel was a great choice for us. It is good value, clean and new looking and in a good location. The staff were very polite and helpful, the rooms are spacious with micro and fridge and parking is free (unlike some places round here that I've seen reviewed). They also provide a free, hot buffet breakfast.

It is only about 7 miles from LAX (about $30 by taxi). Hermosa Beach is gorgeous and you can walk to it in about 10 mins but it's all uphill coming back which may be a problem for some. Car hire is pretty reasonable though and well worth it to see more of the area.

I can't say anything bad about this hotel and I'd be happy to stay there again.

We have stayed at the HIX HB before, and it never disappoints. The hotel is undergoing some renovation, but we barely noticed the construction. The new breakfast area is roomy and comfortable with a huge TV. The HIX breakfast is hearty, and the area is kept clean and neat. Rooms are large, clean, and nicely decorated. We have always stayed on the wing that is not right next to the PCH, overlooking either the parking lot or the Redondo Beach sign. These rooms are quiet and peaceful. It's about a 10-minute walk downhill to the beach through a pleasant, safe neighborhood. Many great restaurants are within walking distance. Hotel staff is courteous and competent. We really enjoy staying at the HIX HB.

Holiday Inn is usually pretty consistent in their hotels, and this one is no exception. The hotel is currently being remodeled, but we didn't notice any noise. The rooms are fine, clean with just the usual wear in spots. Breakfast was convenient and it was easy to jump onto the Pacific Coast Highway and head to wherever we wanted to spend that day. Parking was free and there is a CVS right next door just in case you, ehem, forgot to bring beach towels. The management was friendly and let us stay a little longer in the pool area after hours.

They are technically within walking distance of the beach, but it's mostly the harbor. You'll have to go a bit north to get to the point where you'd want to swim, but you can walk around the pier area (we had great churros at this tiny stand at the Redondo Beach pier).

The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the beach. The rooms are average but they are clean.
The bathroom had plenty of towels and shampoo in the room. The staff was helpful and the parking is free. I didn't care for the eggs but the rolls and the coffee was good.

I was going to give this hotel a great review until the final night - so much noise. You can hear everything in the hallway. And even though we had a room not facing the road, the noise was just awful the last night. It must have been because it was a Friday night. Prior to that night, the hotel was great - very clean, huge rooms, good breakfast, nice staff.

My family and I would highly recommend this hotel because it was conveniently located. A Longs CVS was just across the street if we needed anything in a hurry and a post office was close by also.

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. One thing we liked the most about this hotel is that it has a room on the 2nd flr. to do our laundry. Talk about convenience! Also, the breakfasts every morning was excellent. Enough food to keep you going for the rest of the day.

We did some sightseeing but mostly to see our relatives living in nearby Gardena and Redondo Beach area. At the same time we paid a visit to Redondo Beach to get back some nostalgia for my husband and I. Our daughter was only about 3 or 4 when we first took her there. Now, she's going to be 20 in Sept. The place has improved quiet a bit from the last time we were there.
