My aunt actually recommended this hotel after she stopped by the location to check it out. I thought the location was great, just a few miles from Redondo Beach, and many dining options within a few minutes' drive, not to mention the Del Amo mall just across the street. The area can get very busy at peak times so be prepared to deal with traffic.
The wifi had its issues at times in which we could not connect at all. The elevator was very slow and it closed much faster than it opened, even if something some was in the doorway. This could be a safety hazard.
On the second floor was a small balcony area with some seating and we were there for about five minutes before some very rude foreign guests decided to start smoking next to us. While there is no signage about smoking or not in this area, there is a posted sign for Designated Smoking on the ground level. It was pointless to try and explain this so we had to leave earlier than planned. Signage for smoking and non-smoking at this hotel would be a great improvement.
Front desk staff at check-in and check-out was great. It looked like the computer and printer in the lobby were free to use as I did not see any pricing posted and only saw a sign that asked you to limit your time to 15 minutes.
Overall, I would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: I suggest parking in the uncovered spots up front versus in the back underneath the hotel itself. Ju...

Room was kind of small for a "suite", did not have a bathroom vanity. Door to bathroom only locked from outside! Very low water pressure .On the plus side room was very quiet, did not hear any outside noise.
