“Nice property, good location, excellent value”
Reviewed August 19, 2007

We stayed at the Hermosa Beach Holiday Inn Express for one night, August 11th to be closer to LAX following a long weekend in Huntington Beach. We were coming from the HB Hyatt Regency so this would be a step down in hotel class. Since the purpose of the trip was my wife’s b-day and our belated honeymoon, the hotel upgraded us to an executive suite which was nice. It was not on the PCH side, which was my major concern. The room was clean, and everything was in order. The fridge and microwave was a nice to have feature.
Check in was smooth, the hotel staff friendly. We took advantage of the safe deposit box to leave our valuables in while we went to Manhattan Beach to check out the AVP tour and hang at the beach for a couple of hours. They even let us take some of their pool towels to the beach since we did not have any beach towels (we brought them back and returned them to the pool area). The pool itself is a small indoor pool. We did not partake.
Getting our belongings out of the safe deposit box was the only hiccup at this hotel; the desk clerk clearly had not been trained on how to use the keys.

As others have mentioned, the location is right next to the Redondo Beach Pier area, even though it is a Hermosa Beach address. Walking distance easily.

All in all it was a very good value and we were only 20 minutes from LAX (at 4:30 am) which made it worth it moving hotels. I would stay here again.

We stayed at this place for one night to be near LAX on the last night of a vacation.

We wanted to stay at the Hampton Inn, but it was fully booked.

When checking in, I asked for a room away from the busy highway, and we were given a large room facing west. From our window, we could see the ocean in the distance.

The motel is located in a not-very-appealing stretch of PHC with no useful businesses nearby except a large drug store (which sells, among much else, frozen food that could be heated in the microwave).

Our room was large with two beds, two club chairs, a desk with two chairs, a refrigerator, a microwave, and a coffee maker. The furnishings were fresh and the beds were comfortable enough, though firmer than we prefer.

A light breakfast is served, and the property has a pool.

The beach is a little over a half mile away and it can be accessed by walking down a pleasant residential street. (The Hampton Inn is located much farther from the beach.)

We had a pleasant meal on the water at Bluewater Grill--a short drive away--a pleasant way to end our trip.

Stayed April 2007

We chose to stay here on arrival at LAX from the Uk - about 20 minutes from the Car Rental area at LAX. Very welcoming and helpful reception staff, happy to put 2 rollaways into our huge room, with massive jacuzzi bath AND shower. Staff know all about local facilities, shops etc. So much more peaceful than hotels at LAX or Venice Beach - also FREE car parking! Great place to unwind for 2 nights to get over jet lag. Room was massive and clean. Breakfast straightforward continental "help yourself" style. Swimming pool adequate. 3 minutes to Hermosa beach and pier. 20 minutes to Long Beach. 15 minutes to LAX. Good place - recommended! Grocery store and fast food minute away. Felt safe and happy!

  • Liked — Short drive from LAX, no car parking fees, large room, relaxed atmosphere
  • Disliked — No views. outdoor pool was indoors!

A nice, clean, safe, elegant place to stay. We loved the new bedding system that replaces those suspicious bedspreads with a duvet enclosed in freshly laundered sheets. The bedding was comfortable and very clean. Pillows came in soft and firm, and were so labeled with embroidered pillow cases. Rooms are huge and include a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker.

Breakfast is substantial and good. Hurray for eggs! And hot, yummy cinnamon rolls.

We were told the pool/hot tub were indoors, which was 3/4 true. The area is enclosed on three sides, and is roofed, but has one side open to the air. That made it a bit chilly, but not one bit humid.

The only negative was that it is a very long walk to the beach and to the area with beach shops and restaurants. We ended up taking the car and parking at meters, which were plentiful, but inconvenient. Hermosa Beach is lovely and we were lucky enough to see grey whales near the shore on March 29, right before reluctantly heading back to Wisconsin. What a great California send off.

I stayed here for three nights at the end of February. Everything was fine...clean, new, fast internet, coffee in the AM, and friendly staff. Very good price performer for the area. Will definitely stay here on my next trip in a few weeks. Parking was more than adequate.

Stayed there during first weekend of March 2007. Found the place to be a really nice place. Honestly I can't find anything to complain about. We had no issues with parking but noticed when we were checking out that there was some kind of meeting going on and the parking was actually full. We stayed in the suite with the jacuzzi. Very nice and clean. Yes on a busy street but really not an issue. And if you are a visitor like us there is no better place to see the area than on Pacific Coast Highway!

A good walk to the beach, quicker to drive for us! Staff was super nice. Breakfast was the usual hotel style, fruits and grains and drinks all nice and all neat and clean.

Nice hot tub and pool. Pool was a tad cool but heck it's March! Hot tub took care of that!

It's in a generally very nice area, right on the line of Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach towns. Don't forget to check out the Pier St. beach area and shops, very nearby a most nice area and visit Hermosa General Store a great shop in that area and good places to eat at that area. Great trip starter area!

Last of all a CVS right next door to the motel, handy for us traverlers!

Will for sure return.

Good location. Nice rooms, very large and clean. The main problem was the bed. It was horrible - the hardest I have ever slept on. The parking can also be difficult when the hotel is full. Very nice staff. You can walk to the beach.
