Decent for the price

This was a decent, clean hotel for the price, on a major strip near the airport with plenty of amenities nearby including a Target just down the street. It is perfectly suitable if you plan to do a majority of activities away from the hotel and just go back to sleep. No views of anything- just interior courtyard with pool. Continental breakfast was sparse and boring, but adequate. (BTW 2013, not 2012).

Wonderful Place to Stay 2013

We did a family trip jan 2013. It was wonderful! The location was excelent to everywhere we wanted to go. The beach in walking distance was Amazing with great shops and food to go along with it! I definetly would stay there again. The gentleman working the front desk Fri was fantastic. The lady who checked us in could use some improvements. but don't let that distract you it was way better than a 3 *

Short drive to the ocean

The staff was willing to help relocate me when my iPad would not pick up their wireless. The hotel is average, but it is fairly clean and inexpensive. It is also a short drive to the ocean, which is probably the biggest plus (along with free parking). The earliest that breakfast is served during the week is 06:30 and 07:00 on the weekends, which makes it difficult to have breakfast if you need to be someplace. If you are on vacation, then such a thing isn't a big deal.

Like i put in my review "NEEDS THAT SPECIAL SOMETHING"

My over all experience was OK. The room was very dated I felt they could have cleaned the room better then it was. The pillows had no covers on them and they were really warn out there was stains on the sofa seat and on the ironing board, and wort of all i had a Jacuzzi tube room but it didn't work and i did what the instructions said but nothing. The room its self better then the previous room i originally booked. Overall it was comfortable and only 15 min. walk to Manhattan beach. But next time I will stay at a better hotel and closer to the beach.

Just okay.

First room assignment was a room someone had smoked in, some lights didn't work and bathroom door was broken. Check in staff person had no customer training and was sullen. Complimentary breakfast was very limited. Good enough to sleep in only as our family was nearby to spend the days with and it was Christmas. My worst nightmare was that there was mold in the shower tiles!

Good location...

If you want to go to Manhattan Beach, this is a good option. It would be better if it had fridges in the rooms.

Nice hotel with clean, spacious rooms and a good value

The hotel is well-located, has some great restaurants just next door/across the street: one Cuban, the other Japanese. Because the rooms face an inner courtyard with pool and hot tub, the rooms are quiet. Parking at slightly below ground level beneath the hotel is great! I would stay here again, especially for the cost. Good breakfast and very friendly staff!
