4 stars for the room, view, location, valet service, maid service. 3 stars for strange, incompetent front desk staff. 1 star for the pathetic continental breakfast.
This place is not cheap but you can't beat its location on one of the hottest beaches in So Cal. If you want an authentically southern california beach experience (volleyball, good looking tanned bodies all over the place, warmish water, soft sand, party atmosphere) this is the place to stay. Oceanfront room is worth the price except for the one big downside -- it is very noisy if you like your window open. The strand runs right along the hotel and you will hear all sorts of noise day and night, as well as late night revelers of the frat boy and sorority girl type. On the plus side the balcony is great for people watching and volleyball tourneys.
The strand is lots of fun for late night running and for peeking into the homes that sit right next to it. It's a real party atmosphere on the strand at night, especially on the weekend.
For its oceanfront location the hotel is surprisingly fancy and well-maintained. The rooms are lovely. The bed is wonderful and the pull out sofa isn't too uncomfortable. Lobby is small but pretty. They offer use of a computer to do internet searches in the lobby and they give you two free bottled waters every day.
The breakfast is absolutely pathetic for such a nice place though. It would be so much better if they offered some protein such as eggs or even some cut up fruit. Instead it's cereal, milk, juice, coffee, bread, and these gross sticky pastries that you would find at a Best Western. Too bad because the bfast room and outdoor patio are right next to the beach and very pleasant for sitting.
We would definitely come back here again. Love Hermosa Beach and how sleepy it still feels. It's kind of surf grungy whereas Santa Monica is slick and Euro.
