“Like being in a Coen Brothers film”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

This was our last night in LA and it was marathon day so we didn't want to get stuck in the bad traffic and risk missing the flight. So this place is perfect for the airport. And perfect too as a base for exploring south LA beaches and towns. We drove down to Redondo, Hermosa and the exclusive estates of Palos Verdes. This is an amazing part of LA, so different to the main bits. The motel is an archetypal US motel, straight from a low budget movie, or Coen Brothers. Sadly the pool was closed due to a change in state laws that says every pool now needs to have two pumps. Clearly this pool had one pump. And remained shut. At 69 dollars a night I can't imagine they'll be excavating the pool foundations to put another pump in for some time. In the car park is a Mexican cafe that opens for breakfast. It was great. Across the road was a Mongolian eat as much as you like restaurant. That wasn't too great. But it was popular with the locals. The Seahorse Motel had good sized rooms, good bathroom, and did the job perfectly.

Room Tip: Rooms facing south will get the morning sun. My room facing north was very cool in the morning. Whic...

First to set the record straight...I have not stayed at this Motel for over 5 years....however I was arranging a recent LA trip and went through online listings finding that Sehorse still does not have its own website...it is however reviewed on other review sites...
What I found in reading current reviews is that it is still giving great service at budget prices in a great location...so I wanted to add my experience and possibly get Trip Advisor to list it...
Sea Horse is run by a family and has a Mexican restaurant, that also sells American breakfast, right in the parking lot..
Its a few minutes south of LAX with a straight shot on Sepulvada to the Airport and all the rental car companies....
Manhattan Beach with its great restaurants, the whole Volleyball lifestyle of the beach etc is minutes away.
I can highly recommend this Motel as your base of operations in LA...
