Good for those who wants to be close to the beach

Would recommend Thu, Oct 16, 2014
So, good option for those who wants to be close to the beach and don't pay crazy money. The hotel is 25 minutes of walk from Manhattan beach. But if you plan to drive around LA, it's not the best location. The traffic in LA is pretty bad and it took us from about 40 minutes to 1 hour to get to downtown. Didn't like that the front desk staff wasn't there when we arrived around 11 PM and had to wait for somebody to check in for 20ish minutes. Also, the pool was closed although the weather was really hot. Breakfast is just okey. Nothing special, cereals, apples, donuts, oatmeal. But I didn't expect a lot to be honest. But in general, good value for this price. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet.

Incredible Staff

Would recommend Wed, Oct 15, 2014
Hotel was ok but the staff was amazing. Mona at the front desk was so friendly and helpful. The gentleman who worked the morning shift was also very friendly and helpful. I didn't get his name.

LA trip

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 14, 2014
Cheap room. Tile was coming apart in the bathroom, wallpaper was peeling, somewhat dilapidated. The sign in the front of the hotel on the outside is faded so badly I couldn't even see it the first time. I had to drive back in order to see it the 2nd time. Nice pool and hot tub though.

The Wave is the Way!

I loved the location...3 minutes from the beach and 30 minutes to downtown L.A. The staff was very helpful with directions and with access to their computer/printer.

Had to leave the hotel the next day

Would not recommend Fri, Oct 10, 2014
The hotel is in a great location in Manhattan Beach but the quality is very poor... I even changed room... the smell was bad lots of mildew and visible moisture in the walls and ceiling. Had to leave the next night and find other commendations. Would not recommend at all!!

This hotel needs a huge face lift especially because of its location.

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 7, 2014
At first, I assumed the hotel was going to be an up scale hotel from the 3 star ratings I've seen but the place is honestly a dump. I arrived an hour before check in time assuming I'll be able to do an warbling check in but The room was not ready. As I was waiting in the lobby, I decided to read over the reviews on this place and it was a disgrace. Finally, when I entered the room? I did not want to walk all the way inside, just by glancing at it, the linen and the furniture is outdated. I have a one month old & two other sons under the age of 7 yrs old and I was just disappointed that the pool looked like a infested swamp. I am overly frustrated that I was unable to get a refund since I booked a vacation package. This hotel was definitely inconvenient for me and my children.

A little rundown...

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 6, 2014
This hotel was pretty well-priced considering the prime location. However, the hotel itself is very clearly rundown, sadly. Some of the lights did not work in the room, and the furniture was very worn.

Wave Hotel

Would not recommend Wed, Sep 24, 2014
Room was outdated, carpet badly worn and stained. The room had a musty odor to it that persisted the entire time we were there. Towels were threadbare. Molding around door jamb in bathrrom was warped and peeling paint. TV remote didn't work. Breakfast was mediocre quality and selection. Overripe banannas, no hot food for breakfast. Pool was dirty and chairs around pool were worn out and some were broken. A cheap hotel that has seen better days.

Dining

C & O Trattoria at Venice Beach. Excellent Italian restaurant. They have free Killer Garlic Bread Bites that are awesome. Food was delicious and reasonably priced.
