The Wave - Manhatten Beach

Our room had thousands of ants - had to have them spray and some remained. The ceiling had spiders. I had to remove them myself. They didn't get around to making up the rooms until after 5 p.m. so 2 out of the 5 nights we stays the room never got made up. So, no towels. I had to beg for towels every day. The ones they supplied were so small and thin they were almost like a old hand towel. The desk help was not polite and appeared to know nothing and could do nothing. Also they only had Comcast and channels 500 through 512 for movies. They were poor selections and there was no way to pay for a current movie. Very disappointing. The plus is the room was cheap, good location to the beach, free parking in a nice garage, free internet and the elevator and ice machine worked. They said I deserved a refund or some kind of discount but because I had purchase through the internet, they could do nothing.

Not quite the 'nightmare before Christmas'

Waited in the empty lobby for quite some time wondering where the employees were to check us in. Finally a very 'indifferent' fellow came out from another room and simply looked at us. When told we had a reservation, he still didn't address us, but took my printout and proceeded to check us in. We went to our room, found it unclean and a broken lavoratoy lock. Travelled back to the main desk and waited again. I don't think he believed our room wasn't prepared, but gave me another room anyway. Really very blase attitude! If it hadn't been Xmas, I might have tried something else in the area.

Great Location for a quiet getaway

I stayed for a week at this small but cozy hotel. It had a nice size outdoor heated pool and jaccuzzi, and later found out there was a sauna as well. The room was clean and comfortable although there was no refrigerator or microwave. I was pleasantly surprised to find On demand channels when i turned on the tv. (Probably the most updated thing in the room) Location was perfect! About a 10 minute walk to the local beach and a short drive to all restaurants and stores. Staff was helpful. Would definitely come back!

Chili's has an amazing deal. For $35 for 2 people, you can get 2 regular sized Margaritas, an appetizer, 2 full size entrees and a yummy dessert! Staff was so amazingly friendly as well!

Good location for LA

Good location close to the beach areas (Venice, Manhattan beach etc. Clean rooms with even small fridge. Not all staff is as friendly and helpful but that is more people related.

Practical Choice

A reasonable choice if you're mostly planning to do things other than stay at the hotel. It was clean, comfortable, the breakfast was average (cereal, bagels, instant oatmeal, coffee and juice, some fruit) and the location was convenient - only took us 15 minutes door-to-door to return our rental car at LAX. It's quiet inside even though it's a busy area. Not really a comfortable walk to the beach, but there's parking near the pier. If you need a reasonable place to sleep - this is it. If you want a beach hotel, this is not it.

If you go to universal studios, the front of the line pass is worth it.
