“Great staff, friendly people”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Many of the previous views are correct in saying that this hotel could use some updating in a lot of areas. Overall everything is in order and the hotel is clean. However, if you're used to staying at a lot of the other upper level Marriott properties, this one may be a step down.
But, I think the price is also a little lower than those hotels so you make a few tradeoffs.

The cab ride from LAX is less than 10 minutes so it's very convenient to stay here before heading out on a trip.

The most desirable rooms are those that face the golf course. With the large balcony, it's a great place to relax at the end of the day.

I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Due to being here for a conference I was able to be in many of the conference areas and they were all updated and comfortable.

Although there are certainly much nicer properties in the area, if I were in Los Angeles I would stay here again.

First of all, my thank you to the staff at the Manhattan Beach Marriott. They were quite accomodating and pleasant. The excellent staff boosted my 1 star rating to a 2 star.

Beyond that...the hotel needs an uipdate. Bad spells around the property. Popcorn ceilings. Smaller rooms.

I'd stay somehwere else next visit, unless an update to the building occurrred.

I stayed here with my family over the Labor Day weekend. Everyone we dealt with at the valet, to check in and the restaurant were very polite and helpful. We arrived quite early and they were able to give us a room. I strongly suggest however that you request a room facing the gulf course. Our room was overlooking an upper level parking lot, but because we got an early check in we didn't try to switch.

The lobby is very open with a nice and bright atmosphere. Scattered on tables are games of tic tac toe and dominos, which were fun for my kids. The pool area could use a facelift. I suggest filling in the cracks in the cement and adding umbrellas to the chair area opposite the cabanas. Also, the mural by the jacuzzi is beautiful but several large pieces were missing and should be fixed. There was waiter service at the pool. You can use the phone so you don't have to walk all the way into the restaurant. Water temperature was perfect for us--warm enough to swim in for a long time, but still on the refreshing side. The pool area is open until 11 pm which is nice because we like to use the spa in the evening.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. If you need a refrigerator you have to call and ask for one. Our room had a shower but no bath. The beds and pillows were comfortable.

All in all a very pleasant stay and would not hesitate to visit again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the golf course. Also ask for a refrigerator if you need one.

Stayed on 7th floor golf side, this visit, before a flight to Rome. Room was spotlessly clean and breakfast was delicious. Best part is the hotel staff, always professional and friendly. We live 2 hours from LAX, fly alot aand spend night before as a rule. This hotel is quiet and is a short drive to the airport. If you're expecting a JW Marriott or a big city feel, this won't do for you. It's a casual, beach feel hotel.

This Marriott was a disappointing. It does not hold up to other full-service Marriotts. The entire hotel needs a face lift. As one reviewer mentioned, it's the little things at this hotel. Our bathroom door handle was broken and there wasn't any soap. The air conditioner is loud. The fire department was called because one of the elevators stopped working. Please note: the location is not near the beach.

Great room over looking the golf course, love having the sliding glass door, it's nice to have fresh air in a hotel room. Shower could be cleaner, but over all clean and nice. They could use new towels, but I feel that way about most hotels. Staff is wonderful! Walking distance to restaurants and shopping.

This past weekend marked the last week before my kids went back to school. We live about an hour away from the beach so it gets hot in the Valley areas and Manhattan Beach beckoned. This weekend also happened to be my daughter's birthday. The staff upgraded my family and I to an executive suite and they had a piece of chocolate cake and milk waiting for my daughter. If you can believe, there was an envelope with my daughters name that had a wonderful birthday card signed by several staff members! This small gesture made my little girl smile and it reaffirmed why I will continue to frequent Marriott establishments. The hotel itself is nothing to write home about but it is comfortable and has a beautiful golf course view should you be so lucky to get this view. A special thank you goes out to Griselda who was at the front desk and was so accommodating. I sincerely appreciate her and the rest of the staff. This Marriott hotel knows how to hire people with EXCELLENT customer service skills. I will definitely be back, what a great family hotel and atmosphere to match. Thanks again!
