Recent guest reviews

This hotel was the cheapest in the area and closest to the venue I needed to be by in Redondo Beach. I expected a crummy hotel since it was so much cheaper than others, but it was very clean, comfortable, the staff was great, and there was even breakfast :)

Was there for 10 days, one night my door lock didn't work (dead for lock battery), one night I came back to find no towels in the room. Hotel staff did their best to fix both problems asap. Beds were nicely made each day. Breakfast was a bonus (weekend staff does a much better job of stocking the bar btw). Decent place to stay the night. Might spend a little more money next time to get more amenities.

For price and location this was a great nights sleep. Close to the beach, grocers and gas. Definitely not a 5 star resort, but rooms were large and clean. Friendly, helpful staff plus free continental breakfast every morning! Would stay here again!

The continental breakfast was very nice. More than we expected. The manager was very friendly and helpful.

Safe area clean grounds clean rooms close to all shopping stores

Old Place. Small room. Staff is friendly. Room is not really soundproof.

Third time staying here in as many years and same as always, fine place for resting after a long day of sightseeing in the area.

Very helpful staff was willing to help locate places for us

I had to check out early and get a better place to stay

Everything was fine only complaint was the wifi kept going out and was very slow.

This was a nice place to stay, plus reasonable. Convenient location while we were visiting area.

Front desk staff was very professional, helpful and friendly. I was able to check in early. It was just so easy getting in and out. The only complaint I have is that the room definitely could use more lighting.

my day started very early and arrive very late my room was cleaned with fresh towels I never seen the employers or needed to call for any c/o

Easy to get to from the airport, as well as many shopping possibilities in and around the South Bay area. Very helpful and friendly staff. The only thing which could be improved on is the variety and quality of teh breakfast.

I t was very good. Only breakfast items such as fruit were not always available around 8;30. We didn't receive towels and cups a couple of nights. Otherwise, it was very clean, I thought and timely.

First room key didn't work, second room key also didn't work. I was assigned a new room which I was able to get in to but had ants coming out of the shower head when I turned it on. Walls are really thin, I could clearly hear the people upstairs and next door. I was very happy the weather was nice because the walkways in front of the rooms are not covered and seem to suffer from water damage. The elevator is also not anywhere close to the check in counter and I was not confident about the security. Otherwise it was your average hotel.

THIS WAS A GOOD LOCATION FOR OUR NEEDS. ROOM WAS VERY CLEAN AND THE STAFF VERY FRIENDLY.

GREAT LOCATION FOR WHAT MY WIFE AND MYSELF WANTED. ROOM WAS VERY CLEAN AND THE STAFF FRIENDLY.

This hotel was excellent. A great location, and I couldn't ask for anything more. The room keys kept getting deactivated, but luckily, the staff was available 24/7. The rooms were very clean, but I have to say that we could hear people walking up and down the outside walkway, and the people above us were heavy footed and could hear them very well. All total, I'd give this place an B+/A- for everything total.

I travel for business and the Internet is a requirement. I stayed here for two nights during which the motel internet was down the entire time. The front desk clerk kindly offered to let me use the wired pc in the lobby; however, it did not have Office loaded on it so Word documents could not be viewed. I was told that they hoped guests would be patient as they were working on the Wi-Fi wiring. Unfortunately, if you need it for work, you need it then. Upon checkout, the front desk clerk said I was "rude" when I cited the inconvenience of no Wi-Fi, the general manager did offer a free night's stay within the next month but stated it was doubtful the Wi-Fi would be working during that time. No refund was possible as I booked through travel website. Room was clean. Convenient location
