Not Good

Hotel desk made one excuse after the other when trying to check in, NO bath towels in room and when my husband called, they said they couldn't bring any because they were cleaning another part of the hotel, he dryed off with a hand towel, unbelieveable!!! Room was filthy, blood or something on the wall in the bathroom, walls very dirty near the bed, and the bed was hard as a rock!!!! Not a hotel/motel I would ever stay in again, so glad it was only one night!!! Not pleased at all, dirty, dirty, dirty!!!!!!!!

Needs updating

This is a very old motel. Furnishings were worn. The refrigerator was so noisy we had to unplug it. The staff was very friendly and responsive.

Meh, Not Great, not awful

This is a motel, not a hotel as I expected. But it did the trick. The bed was comfy and the kids enjoyed the pool. It was relatively inexpensive.

Work In Progress

First and foremost I booked this hotel after reading the reviews here and I was very hesitant about coming here since I feared for the worst but expected mediocrity. Due to these expectations, this hotel has exceeded my expectations upon arrival late in the evening check in was quick it was a motel style hotel which wasn't so great to walk around when it was chilly at night 60s. The lobby is small and has a meager selection of things you may have forgotten like advil, bandages, toothpaste etc for purchase. But walking past the pool and seeing the jacuzzi bubbling I was excited for daybreak to jump in. The room was thoroughly cleaned prior to arrival due to the smell of a pine-sol like product and a industrial fan running full blast since earlier in the day to dry the floor. At first I thought that was suppose to be my AC but upon further investigation the AC/Heater did work. They do have a nice view during the day from the hotel on the side with the Porsche dealership, my room view was someones backyard that need maintenance. There is a Chinese food place on the compound in front but I never ventured there. Bed was plush and I did do a hair check on the bed and stain check and didn't see anything. Upon laying on my bed I did see ONE insect run across the floor but I jumped up and killed his butt. It wasn't a roach it seemed to be a creature you'd find in your basement due to his beige color. After that I was on high alert but didn't see anything else that was wrong. So I didn't complain to front desk because as said before management wasn't there and its not the receptionist fault... maybe housekeeping lol. Cons There were a few bugs floating in the pool, but they had the net for you to take them out. The shower curtain wasn't long enough to properly stop water from spilling on the floor, plus it was ripped on the top, so I had to use a towel on the floor as my mop. The AC/Heat unit was a bit slow to change the temperature in the room it took about 45 to 60 mins to cool down or heat up the suite. Housekeeping doesn't like when I walked up to them and tell them I took a shower and water is on the floor despite me asking politely for her to mop it up. Housekeeping is not 24 hours, so request the extra towels as soon as you get to your room and realize you need any. Needed more hangers, never got them. Pros Im use to their breakfast style and I love bagels and english muffins so Im always excited to save money/get free meal. (They replenish the food out, but I didn't feel like going out to ask for more bagels. So I opened the cupboard and found the bag and took some for myself out and put it back, of course another couple saw me do it and copied me but the staff saw them said they need to ask them to get it for me. Sanitary reasons I'm sure. ) Free wifi Fridge No Carpet That Jacuzzi!!!! Very Spacious room(1 King Bed non-smoking)

Cash Grabs Everywhere

Their website and sign claim they are pet friendly, but there is a $30 PER NIGHT pet fee. Also, when I made the mistake of trying to wipe spilled water off the disgusting fake wood floor in my room with washcloths and they turned black, I got slapped with a $10 fee for each "damaged" washcloth. Free "continental breakfast" was a joke, housekeeping never made it to my room before 5:30pm and the window of my room faced a brick wall where they were dumping bags of old bed sheets. No thank you, will not be staying here again.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If you stay in Torrance with a dog and you want to go to the beach, go to Huntington instead of Long Beach's dog beach. Cleaner, more scenic, fewer aggressive dogs.

Really homey

I planned this trip for my best friend and I. I based the hotel just off the pictures with no real knowledge of the location or hotel before. When we walked in, we were extremely surprised how nice our room was. We were kind of far from everything, but the area was nice and the room fit our needs perfectly.

Nice room, nice staff, will stay here again.

I was traveling for business, and needed a room close to where I was working. The front desk staff were helpful, the room was nice and clean. The room was also much larger than I expected, with plenty of room to move around. I really appreciated that there was a closet to hang my clothes, and also an ironing board with iron, so I didn't have to request one. There was a fridge in the room, and a nice desk space for working. Free internet worked fine. There is a good Chinese restaurant bordering the property within walking distance. Other restaurants and markets are nearby. The only 'downside' to the room would have been that there was no microwave. Certainly not a deal breaker, but it would have been very nice to heat up stuff kept in the fridge.
