About 1 mile to the beach. Limited breakfast. Older but clean. Staff was nice enough. Pillows were awful.. Free airport shuttle was convenient. Pool was ok. For the price it was good but call hotel direct cost may be cheaper.

We were looking for a decent hotel near Manhattan Beach and found the Crimson Hotel.

The hotel is about a mile off the beach, but an easy bike ride. The beds are comfortable, the rooms clean and quiet. It's location on Sepulveda can be a blessing or a curse. The curse is the traffic noise at the front of the hotel (but we didn't hear a thing from our room midway back into the outlay of the hotel).

The pool and hot tub are nice, but inside the walls of the surrounding rooms.
The breakfast is very forgetable. Cereal, a few muffins, some juice and coffee are basically it.
I also got an accidental wake up call at 4:30am that I DID NOT request.

But for the cleanliness, price and location, it's a decent deal.
It's certainly not one you would want to book for a honeymoon, because there's little charm. But we extended our stay because of the value.

Room Tip: Rooms mid to back are quieter, but the road facing rooms also face the ocean. Not sure if they'r...

This hotel was a last minute choice since we were visiting redondo beach (about 10m away) and didn't plan on staying there. Nonetheless, this hotel turned out to be a decent choice and good value. For about $140 we got a two-bedroom suite with 3 queen beds. It is fair to say that they gave us a free upgraded since there were five of us and they didn't have a roll away bed available.
Anyhow, the bedding was comfortable and the room spacious. Staff was also helpful, especially when our toilet begun to overflow. They were very quick to change the room for us. We understand that "accidents" happen and they were quick to fix it for us so that made easier to give a good review.

Would I recommend? Yes, just don't expect the free upgrade. If possible get the suite. I know that made a difference in enjoying my stay here.

On a side note; if ordering in. Get pizza from Amici pizzeria (I think that's what is called) .

I only picked this hotel because i had to stay in Manhattan Beach. but i still thought that this hotel wasn't value for Money. The room was clean and as mention b4 is closed to beach. the toilet was noisy and light wasn't working. the place needs renovation and the breakfast don't even bother thinking about it, it is hobible

I liked this hotel it was clean and our room had a jacuzzi tub ! Which I didn't expect. The breakfast was good had all the basics. It was in the center of everything and I would stay there again. The staff was very friendly and helpful I really liked this place and it was only 12 minutes from LAX

Yes, this place was relatively inexpensive. But with old, tired rooms, scary carpets, the smell of other guests smoking pot and yet others talking loudly into the night, this is not the place for me. Was supposed to stay here for two nights, but had to check out at 7a the first morning. There are other options nearby that are not too much more expensive but dramatically better in quality.

Along the Pacific Coast Highway lies this former Comfort Inn. The location is good for people, who want to stay near the ocean without paying a million bucks for it. The hotel itself is nothing special. It's a run down, old motel with heavy carpeting and outdated bathrooms. The central courtyard has a small, but nice pool area. We stayed in a lower level room behind the pool and it was very dark no matter what time of the day.
The hotel was selected due to its location near the beach. It served that purpose well – Manhattan Beach is not nearly as noisy as its southern neighbor, Hermosa Beach.
The continental breakfast served is basically useless. It might be continental – but there should at least be more than cereal and a dry donut.

Bonus info: This hotel is close to filming locations for Beverly Hills 90210
