“Good location, old dumpy hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

The rooms with the spa tubs are big. It appears clean but the room smelled like mold. The rooms are dark & dingy. I went out to the pool, super cold, ok no biggey they dont heat it but I got in the spa & it was freezing! I turner on the suana it didnt work either.

We stayed here 5 nights over the Memorial Day weekend and found it to be a fairly safe place with no low life types in surrounding area. The rooms were spacious enough and clean. Free covered parking and elevator. The continental breakfast was enough and the room had a nice view of the main street. Water didn't smell of heavy chlorine like the other LA places we've stayed. No pets. I would highly recommend this hotel. We had a king bed and I didn't feel any movements. Slept really good. Nice pool and jacuzzi. Not a whole lot of traffic when getting out from the hotel. We had a small refridge and micro wave that I didn't see listed on the hotel's website amenities. Front desk staff was very helpful.

Aloha!

Room Tip: Most rooms are going to be the same. I would take a 2nd floor rm. People slam their doors, you going...

For a few days layover in LA enroute to Hawaii this was the perfect hotel. Great price for the area, good beds, clean, good towels and linens. Our room was away from the main road - facing the pool area - the result was an extremely quiet room. The rate includes a continental breakfast. The staff are most helpful. The parking garage below the hotel is most convenient.

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
