In desperate need of an update

Furniture and fixings were old and damaged. No fridge. Limescale was all over whirlpool bath and there were cigarette burns on actual bath. Pool looked quite dirty and so we didn't use it. Earwigs in room. Ice machine didn't work. Staff on reception seemed bored and were unhelpful. Internet in rooms was really slow. I'd like to say though that the cleaners were lovely and great at what must be a difficult job. The location was pretty good but you had to cross a massive road which took about 5 minutes waiting at the lights before you could even get going. It's in quite an industrial area but has lots of chain restaurants around it. We ended up finding somewhere else to stay. If you have a bit more budget then spend it somewhere else!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Manhattan beach is nice and quiet and not too far to walk. Probably one of the best beaches in the area. Lots of nice shops and restaurants in that area too.

Decent, you get what you pay for

Room was a good size and the bed was a good size. Has shampoo and soap but no conditioner. Mini fridge included, which was nice. Great location - very close to the beach and all the shops and restaurants. Hot tub and pool were okay....could have been a bit cleaner but I wasn't complaining. Quiet....which was nice.

Needs entire new maid staff

We checked in at The Wave and upon entering our room we immediately noticed a heavy mildew smell in the air and you could only open the window about 3 inches, making it impossible to air out. The carpet was thick and lumpy. Half of the lights did not work. The first room had dirt all along the floor boards, built up, especially in the bathroom. Parts of the ceilings are warped and bubbled from water leaks unattended to. The floor was so dirty we found a prescription pill just sitting on the bathroom floor! If we moved a chair there was dirt under it. The second room was almost as dirty but at that point it was late and it was obvious that this establishmemt just doesn't cater to clientele who appreciate cleanliness. Free breakfast is dry cereal and dry pastries. And it is certainly not within walking distance to the beach as stated, hopedully they will remove that bit of false information. This little hotel has a lot of potential but no one to care. If they fired all the maids and hired new ones that had pride in their work, this place would be much more pleasant...and of cou rse bring in a waffle maker!

Not good.

I should have known better than to book a hotel that uses a night time picture as their profile. That said, the staff are at best unprofessional and at worst incompetent. The room was filthy and still had an empty shampoo bottle lying in the shower from the previous guest. It was still there when we left as the housekeeper never noticed. The wallpaper was falling off the wall. The bathroom door had a hole kicked in it. The ironing board was ripped and warped. The hair dryer didn't work. The bed had the comfort of a medieval torture rack and the pillows were designed by the Marquee de Sade. The door to get in the unit needed a good shoulder to open it and it had a 2 inch gap on the bottom, so you could see people walking by. The towels in the bathroom were tiny and had the comfort of Grade 80 sandpaper. They ran out of towels one day, stating that they were very busy. They gave us pool towels to use in the meantime which didn't possess the "quality" of the bath towels. Maybe Grade 60? The pool hadn't been cleaned in quite awhile given the debris content and several tiles around the pool had buckled up and were just waiting to devour a child's foot. There's more, but I wouldn't want to knit pick.

Eh take it or leave it

It's older and more run down. The rooms are nice sized, but very humid and damp. There was mold in the bathroom. All the lights are motion activated so if you are just sitting watching TV or playing your computer you have to continually get up to keep the lights on.
