The hotel is located within walking distance of Manhattan beach. It has a really nice looking pool and hot tub area. The only drawback was that one of the lights in our room wasn't working but that's a minor consideration.
Our stay was comfortable and convenient. The amenities were exciting, especially the continental breakfast. The room was very humid though. It felt as if the carpets were freshly shampooed every time we left the room, but we knew that wasn't the
case. There was evidence of moisture in the room b/c our papers, clothing, and even the wallpaper felt wet. I would definitely go back, but not w/o a dehumidifier.
GOOD POINTS: This hotel was literally wonderful. It was not so expensive like Big name hotels (Marriott, etc..) We loved the intimate setting; it was not so small that it didn't have a pool yet it was not so big that you felt like a number. The
staff was so nice and thorough with cleaning. And finally the location was great;the beach is only 5mins away and there are restaurants and attractions everywhere. We would def. stay again!!
BAD POINTS: They were always short on towels. At one point they had no hand towels for us to bath with.

Ample Parking options.. Everything in the Hotel Looks and Feels a little old.. An 'OK' breakfast option.. Coffee at all times a huge positive thing.. Online booking for this hotel is a little too pricey for the stay..
