Probably the worse experience we had with customer service in this town The front desk was very rude and made a horrible first impression to us and our family friend’s on day 1 It was very clear that management was horrible and the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in the hotel industry

Some positive things?The location is good Adjacent to some great restaurants and it’s on a quieter side of the area which was niceThe pool gets full sun which is nice and never gets talked about It’s nice if you want to get away from the hectic beach and sandGood value for the facility/rooms and cleanliness Parking is easy and it’s a quiet areaThe facility would be great if the front desk and management wasn’t horrible This is why they deserved 1 star Paying several hundreds a day to be talked to like you’re about to be evicted for not paying your rent is not cool

James Kolb

The hotel is at a great location, but FAR from being considered a true Hilton property The hotel and bar offer absolutely nothing complimentary (Coffee, tea or even water), breakfast items are a menu choice and are very healthy, but a little pricey The rooms are very comfortable and spacious

The staff was accommodating and friendlyThe pool and hot tub are clean and comforting, however the entire pool area had ONE functioning umbrella for a dozen plus chaise lounges When asked maintenance if they had more umbrellas, he stated parts are on order! Overall…very satisfied

Brian Martino

This is the perfect place for quiet, fun, rest, and relaxation The rooms are perfectly appointed Beautiful oceanfront view from my suite

My meal from foodservice was delivered quickly and friendly and was set up unobtrusively The steak was cooked perfectly! Which is saying something since its difficult to find a rare steak in SCalifornia! The check-in process was seamless and was made to feel valued The staff is just incredible, everyone! Thank you for a beautiful stay!

My family staying here after an accident at my parents home Staff helped us get adjoining rooms on 1 hour notice Then helped us move parents to the closest handicapped-accessible toom within a week

Breakfasts are wholesome and variety is good Cleaning staff is accommodating Rooms are generally quiet Gated parking is a plusThe only thing is that carpet and hard floors are so old and dirty they are sticky and socks turn black in a day Would love it if floors were steam cleaned periodically

Ricky Beck

I’m 62 old wife 64 We requested room on first floor We reserved 2 or 3 weeks in advance

When we got there, my requested meant nothing It was 2nd floor onlyIt’s been a month and my back is still sore I had to make 8 trips up and down cause I’m not strong enough to carry my suitcase , laptop EtcI also presented my state ID and received zero discountThe lady Asija had a very bad attitude and zero empathy for old folkHope she remembers this when she reaches age in her 60,sSorry, I will never stay there againI did stay there in 2016, same problem but our Son was with us


Nice spot for family vacation The rooms are good size Includes small kitchen, full fridge, 2 burner stove, dishwasher, stocked cabinets with utensils, dishes and cookware

Plenty of closet storage, hangers, iron board w/ ironer Prefer the central air cool and heat blows from top of ceiling so cools whole room evenly We got double bed with sofa sleeperBreakfast buffet M-F is 6-9am Food is mediorcetypical fake eggs, country taters with sausage, flap jacks, oatmeal, cereal, muffins, yogurt, rainforest coffee, juice machineAll in all, breakfastsad Best thing was the fruits The only other problem was a stinky gas leak smell in our front door Lasted for a few hours Made our room smell like fartBest part about this hotel is location Close to all local amenties, Del Amo Mallhuge nice mall you can spend whole day shopping, lots of different restaurants to choose from, 5 min away from Redondo Beach, 8 min from Hermosa Beach

Me and my friend stayed here for 3 nights The room was clean and spacious I did not really talk to the staff much because I did contactless check-in and check-out

The only staff member I really spoke to was housekeeping because we needed fresh towels and rags She did not seem too friendly with helping me out with that as she kind of had an attitude about it but I don’t like reusing my used towels and rags This hotel was the closest place to LAX where we could have free parking (10 miles from the airport) which was not too bad at all I would recommend staying here Even though we did not get to go they did have dining there as well as a swimming pool Beautiful hotel

Tiffany Vinson-Warford

This place is kept up for what it is however I wouldn’t suggest spending more than $100 a night There was no pen and paper, no microwave, no furniture on the balcony that are attached to the room, pillows are rather small, and my bathroom smelled like a sewer The location was great, a lot of things in walking distance

Would I stay here again? Yesas long as I’m paying 3 star prices

Jean Pierre

Location is OK and staff is nice and professional which is why I give a 2 star rating to this hotelI checked in late and did not check the room location: I was on 2nd floorWhen I woke up in the middle of the night with a really loud noise, I discovered room was in front of the huge AC unit of the building

I could not sleep again as it was so awfully noisy See photo to see my “view” from the roomI can understand that there is this type of issues, but room like this should be heavily discountedBe warry of this if you decide to book there

We found this gem of a place because our flight got cancelled at LAX at 11 pm and Bluestem was the only hotel that had open spots that night We were lucky enough to snatch their last room Upon arrival the check in was super fast and easy and we were offered complementary snacks and drinks to help cheer us up!The place is lovely, very artistic ambiance and atmosphere

There is a terrace that is accessible to guests 24/7 which is warmed up by fire and cooled down by a beautiful water fountain during the dayThe rooms were clean and very cozy They have everything you need The only thing that could use a little improvement is the wifi speed The rooms have coffee/tea and you have access to a microwave in the lobbyLast but not the least, the staff were wonderful Can’t say enough about how kind and accommodating they were I highly recommend this place to everyone

Mikayla Cooley

Great hotel for the price Customer service was amazing Parking was a bit hard on weekends but we always figured it out

The stalls are just super tiny The rooms were very clean My socks and feet did get dirty walking around the room so I recommend them mopping daily or for the hotel to leave swifter sweepers in the rooms for guests Definitely recommend it for anyone wanting to stay somewhere clean and safe and not pay a fortune

Heather Benedict

A boutique hotel with exceptional service, comfortable and clean rooms, free parking, free coffee, and exceptionally cordial and accommodating staff Comfortable, professional, 5 stars! This review comes from a former Four Seasons Hotel front desk agent, would say you get a good bang for your buck here, 5 star service for a fraction of the price!

The Jewel Riders Archive

There’s many different aspects to this review And I think that the over arching four stars is for the general experience Some of the service was amazing, some of the service was a little lackluster

The resort as a whole was a little underwhelming The activities offered hotel gas such as horseback riding or kayaking could have been more adventurous; and an actual beach access would’ve been nice The rooms were beautiful The food was decent A little over priced… But I would say if you enjoy sitting in your room and eating at restaurants and listening to live music this is the place to go But if you’re looking for an all inclusive type of a resort this is probably not the place to go

Erin Preul

Terranea has been on my list of places I wanted to stay for a long time I can’t say I was totally disappointed, but I was also not blown away For the price, I was pretty shocked at the poor level of service

When we arrived, our room wasn’t ready – at 5:15PM! We had been told we could check in at 4 at the latest, so we were very frustrated to wait with our bags in the lobby after a long day of travel Not to mention, at the hourly cost of this hotel for an ocean view room, that was almost $100 of time we shouldn’t have had to pay forLuckily, the location was spectacular and the ocean view made up for a lot But we were also surprised that after a day by the pool, our room had not been cleaned We didn’t expect a full service even, just simply new towels and a made-up bed This kind of service is what we expect these days from a lower level hotel, but the price they ask you to pay makes the small details matter much moreI would recommend saving your money and booking a vacation where you will get great service I can only hope Terranea goes back to the quality I heard so much about before COVID – as it stands, I would not return

bernard modugu

I didn’t stay at the hotel here, but I and my date spent some time at the lobby bar and the garden The lobby bar is a beautiful place, amazing vibe, with live music on the day we were there (a Sunday evening) It really was nice

We almost didn’t want to leave 😀 The food was good (we had the calamari something) and it was a lot I was surprised at the amount of food The drinks were pretty good tooParking was also not bad Just $12 for valet parkingThat was for the lobby bar The garden walk was amazing So so beautiful and the area that overlooks the ocean is breathtaking I highly recommend this place 💯Next goal is to stay for a day or two in the beautiful hotel, and try the other restaurants at the location

Edward Chaney

Had a big family reunion at the hotel! They were very accommodating with the family, with all of the check ins and the use of the Catalina room for games and activitiesOur specific room had a lovely view of the ocean The sliding glass door to our room had great noise canceling as well

We were able to hear live music from a local car show with it open and then close it to take a nap Great room, clean and functional, no issues!


Checking in for our reservation was fast and the hotel is walking distance to the pier The hotel is decorated nicely There is a bar in the middle of the lobby as well as a gift shop

My room had a decent view of the ocean and was a nice size The bed soft and comfy For one night the room was about $250, parking $32 and deposit $100

Sea & Bill Peterson

This Sonesta is outstanding The staff were wonderful, especially Angel Luis, the manager, was amazing

The only downside is the parking situation The fees are high and the automated system was not functioning People playing their personal music by the pool was irritating; especially the young kids and their heavy metal sounds We had to close our doors and go inside, despite having notified the front desk It would have been handy to have a restaurant on site

We booked this hotel last minute when we extended our stay in the LA area I was able to get a discount code directly on their site and the cost was very reasonable for the location and facilities We didn’t get to check out all the amenities but those we saw/experienced were great

We had come from a nearby 5 star resort and to be honest, our room and in room amenities were nicer at Shade Though we didn’t use it, we appreciated the availability of the stocked mini bar Lighting in the room was fun, the bathroom was clean and modern, and the bath was fantastic On top of the usual bathroom stuff (shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc) they had a toorhbrush/paste kit and fantastic smelling bath salts They also greeted us with cookies, can’t go wrong with that, ha ha! We were also able to check in quite early which was great since we had to check out of our other hotel at 11 The *only* not ideal part was the walk to the beach but we knew about that when booking so I definitely don’t hold that against them It wasn’t super far but would be a bit of work if you were wanting to take enough stuff for a day out on the beachWe didn’t get the chance to check out the rooftop pool We noticed at both hotels we visited they closed the pools at sunset which was new to us and inconvenient during early sundown months but wouldn’t deter me from staying again Just a head’s up for future visitors

Raquel Nieves

I am in love with the Shade Hotel!! We had such a fantastic 2 night stay as well as our wedding at the hotel and it was all a dream Every room is superbly comfortable, location is great, staff is amazing and whole overall vibe is wonderful! I can’t say enough wonderful things about Shade Hotel Redondo and thank the hotel for an amazing stay


Wow! The suites in this hotel impressed me! What a bathtub is on the balcony overlooking the marina!!!!I liked everything! The neighborhood is great, safe and clean! So many seafood dining options around!I will come back!!!! It’s gorgeous!Would also be perfect not to have neighbors with a barking dog 24/7 I don’t know why such a nice places allow loud animals to the hotel… this part is disappointing

Amazing service!!!Definitely recommend for clean rooms and tons of space for hosting eventsWe just hosted our wedding at this location and were AMAZED at how great the service wasThis particular Marriott’s Senior Event Manager, Elissa, truly went above-and-beyond in ensuring we received all the help we needed, fulfilled every request, and was very proactive from day 1

Our guests who stayed at this hotel also told us about how much they enjoyed their stay, as this is a place that has pretty much everything on site (restaurant, coffee place, room service, etc) It was close enough to the freeways to allow for an easy drive in and was right across the street from a major shopping center, so it was in a pretty nice and lively areaThe hotel staff were also very accommodating with all of our guests who checked in, as I remember we had a few folks who needed XYZ support and it seemed like they definitely got it when they arrivedI also found this hotel to be very military friendly, as we had a small military service held here and they seemed more than okay with us doing our thingAlthough it is a bit pricey, I think it is well worth it because it seems like the staff and management really go all out to support the guests and ensure they have what they needI would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to host a major event (they have HUGE ballrooms that take up 3 floors of space!) and I’d also recommend it to anyone looking for a nice room to stay in with easy access to local food and drink, as they have both on siteIf you do plan to host an event here (like a wedding or a work meeting or whatever), I would highly recommend Elissa as she was really great to us and gave us a ton of supportThank you, Elissa!

Rooms are nice Looks like it was recently renovated Hotel is very busy; hard to get any upgrades

Very convenient to the mall next doorStaff very friendly and professional While they weren’t able to check me in when I arrived, they did their best to get me a decent room as soon as possible

Iwanda Williams

The hotel itself is beautiful But when I made my reservations and paid for this room, I was not informed that it was a hold of $100 per night until I arrived at the hotel The manager did reduce the hold but I ask for the corporate office number

Everything I call the number it’s a fast busy signal I will not stay at this overrated hotel again

Us girls had our annual girls trip here this year, almost 2 weeks ago Yes during the pandemic but everyone at the hotel was very safe, wore masks etc We were required to wear them too walking anywhere (when you were coming into contact w/ppl) or walking into or out of restaurants

The little shops & coffee shop/bakery had the line at 6ft apart & limited amount of ppl in the little shop The 1 lady working in the shop was a bit rude but anyways, I cam here to review our room, pool & the property We had the larger room,w/a kitchen & a connecting normal room The balcony on the larger room was BEAUTIFUL! It had 2 lounge couches, a round glass table w/an umbrella & a fire place! The property is absolutely beautiful & relaxing We had a cabana at the adult pool for 2 days,which was great The pool never got packed & it over looked the oceanside can’t say enough good things about this place besides that you should go! I can’t wait to go back here w/just my hubby & another trip w/hubby & our daughter!! There’s also alot of amenities like a golf course, spa, excursions, kayaking & guided hiking but most were closed or very limited due to damn Covid lol Oh well, next time!

james Pe

This place is amazing Very spacious, has its own washer and dryer, full refrigerator, Microwave, two-burner stove, auto-light fireplace with timer, two toilets (one with its own sink), full bath, full shower, Krupps coffee maker, dish washer, the list goes on This bottom floor unit has an outside porch fire pit

The sofa is a king (I think) hideaway bed There are two large wide screen TVs I wish there was a DVD player, but hey, they have almost everything else The housekeeping is doing a great job with cleaning and restocking everything Room service has been great, and doesn’t take longer than quotedHighly recommend staying in a bungalow if you can spend the $$

Tanya Kulaga

We had a nice stay at this hotel and it was a positive experience overall We arrived a little bit early, around 1:30pm and we pre-checked in so that once our room was ready we could head up We were excited to try the restaurant but it closes and every customer must be out by 2pm

Seems a strange time to close down when you’re most likely to have guests waiting around for their rooms, interested in having drinks and food while they wait This was very inconvenient and one reason for a loss of a star The room was clean and pleasant with a lovely balcony Large shower with a tub inside, great bathroom with bidet and heated toilet seat Room was tidy, although desk chair was worn, with parts of the fabric missing It was fine I also took off a star for the exercise room They have one treadmill, one elliptical, one bicycle, and a couple of weight machines No free weights at all, not a single one There is one single mat to be used and that’s it I guess the guests here don’t tend to exercise much This was a disappointment for me, as I counted on at least a couple of free weights Parking was easy and overall we did enjoy our stay They only clean every other day, so if you’re staying for two nights like we did, you will not have your room cleaned during your stay


I’m very impressed by the tidiness of the facility and the hospitality of the staff here The room was sparkling clean and made me feel extremely COVID-safe I really loved the oversized shower tube and the super comfy bed

In addition, the restaurant affiliated with the hotel has very high quality food I loved the unagi don I ordered Make sure you order ahead of time because they can be busy during dinner rush hours!

Andrew “Andy” Davis

This is a gem of a hotel located near Torrance with its own parking lot and extended lot for events The entrance is quite striking with blossom trees and very well kept entrance in keeping with the Japanese style The lobby sports a simple entrance with hotel lobby and check-in on the right and the Japanese restaurant directly opposite the entrance

There is a stunning fire built into the wall between the lobby and the bar in the restaurant also Rooms are a good sized and very well equipped King size bed is very comfortable and the room has a good tv with many channels to keep everyone happy Each room has a balcony with full height windows that can slide open to allow fresh air to enter There is a safe and a jewelry store and the room also comes equipped with tea and coffee and a coffee machine along with an iHome music player A working table with plugs for notebook and computer connectivity adjoins the window area making for a relaxing place to work The bathroom is well equipped with a toilet and bidet and a deep Japanese style bath for relaxing and a wet room shower AVeda shampoo and conditioners and bath salts are provided and available on request The hotel prides itself on its covid policy with each room being cleaned to a very high standard which gives confidence to guests Staying here is nice, it’s quiet so easy to work or relax There are antibacterial dispensers located in the elevators and a snack bar downstairs along with an ATM I highly recommend this hotel Great service, wonderful staff, super clean and totally in keeping with Japanese style with an awesome on-site Japanese restaurant on the ground floor

For some unknown reason this courtyard hotel will not allow food and beverage credits to be applied towards alcohol/drinksUsed suite night awards to upgrade to a one bedroom suite The hotel overall is okay and the staff is helpful

I will probably be back again unless I can find a courtyard in the area that allows more thorough usage of the food and beverage credits


First at all I want to say thank you to the manager of front desk and one of the front desk ladies who, unfortunately, I don’t know the name of They were incredibly professional and friendly

I had a problem with my reservation and couldn’t arrive because one of my family members got COVID, and they were able to help me In the future, I hope that I’m able to actually stay in this hotel I really appreciate all their help because I had a similar situation with another Marriott hotel and they were rude and incomprehensible

Anthony at the desk was very helpful and made our stay enjoyable Actually all the staff were friendly and helpful Requested an ocean view roomdid not disappoint! Very clean and comfortable Next time we come out there definitely will be staying at the Hampton

Michael DeGroot

Decent enough hotel Located in a great spot to walk for food or the beachBreakfast was fine just not a lot of selection compared to some others I’ve had

Our room had a balcony area, but was in a tight spot between buildings so no real view there We did get early check-in

Daniel Torres

Location is within walking distance of beach, but hotel is really not up to Hampton Inn standards Building is old, parking lot is small, and rooms are “spartan” in furnishings and decor No carpet in room and everything is dated in appearance

Towels were damp which may be result of housekeeping staff overloading dryers so that nothing tumbles and dries as it should Rooms could be cleaner too Staff is friendly, however

Great place to stay, we stayed 4 days here with family, the breakfast is included and is very descent, is not like a grab and go it actually includes eggs waffles, fresh fruit and stuff The service was great I cannot complain about this place at all, everything was clean, staff was nice and they have a coffee machine in the lobby with real Starbucks coffee beans, that was probably the best part for me


I had stayed over a month, staffs were kind and amazing Me and my boys were very happy The location is very convenient such as malls and grocery stores even good restaurants are 5 min

drive away They have free parking lot You have to check out Palos Verdes area and it’s 15 min away I enjoyed staying in Best Western Plus Avita Suite and love Torrance I will definitely come back later


Whatever problems there might be don’t matter as long as they keep doing that breakfast I’m not a morning person at all, but I’m willing to keep getting up before 9am just to get that amazing amount of free food (the only complaint I can think of is how blah the turkey links are, but they got plenty of condiments you can throw on top if you like that sort of thing)Grace (who worked the 5/4 breakfast) got my tip, but it’d be nice if management gave her a bigger one *hint hint*

I’ll update if there are other amazing breakfast staff that work the rest of the week Front desk service on 5/3 was super nice and personableThe rooms (or at least ours) was significantly smaller than expected; even our queen-sized bed barely fit two people I also don’t know if this is every room, but our bathroom was just a shower rather than a shower-bathtubThe main reason we booked this rather than the Extended Stay was because the reviews for the other hotel said that there were “crackheads” that wandered around the parking lot and into the lobby Well BW’s parking lot and their’s is only separated by a short wall We haven’t seen any shady characters wandering around though, so make of that what you will

I wanted to love it because we stayed at another Pacifica property before, and it was a great experience all around, but I was left unimpressed by this property A few great things were location, the beds, the staff, but a few bad things were the noise from the traffic and not so charming view of the busy intersection, the extra charge for parking when they have a huge garage, the pool and spa location in the property, the snack bar was closed, no room service during the 3 night stay because of COVID? Not that I necessarily wanted it, but I’ve stayed at several other properties in the last 2 years, and I do not remember them canceling the room cleaning offering That said, the housekeeper was in the hallway all through the day, making plenty of noise and leaving her cart by our door a few times

Oh yeah, overnight and early morning, the traffic noise is less, but I could hear footsteps from the room above at those times to make up for itIt’s very likely that in a room in a higher level with courtyard view (they may even be able to see the ocean in the higher level) would be a much better experience but unlike many other properties where the difference in view is slight and worth a price premium, here the difference is so radical, I think it may be like staying at a different property (view and noise difference)Bottom line, I doubt I will ever stay in this property again with a room facing the street if I had known, I would have paid extra here it is worth Also 4 months ago we stayed at a property one mile north in the same street and the experience was far superior Great breakfast included The rate difference was minimal but we figured we’d try this one next time we’re going back to the other one

First and foremost Diamond & Benedict we’re excellent on every aspect regarding customer service Friendly, welcoming and attentive to their guests needs The rooms are clean

Location is great The only thing that could use some TLC is the hallway carpet, they were a little dingy and could use a good cleaningOther than that the place and staff were excellent!Thank you!

I’ll keep it short I think this hotel has a lot of potential and I would love to come back but there are a few things that they would need to change before I would consider another stayI’ll start with the pros- great views of the ocean from the balcony, short walk to the beach, across the street from a grocery store, friendly staff, nice patio with furniture and games

The cons- cockroach in our room, the most uncomfortable couch I’ve ever sat on, poor lighting in the room, and generally a dated feel to the room and building (minus the lounge area and patio, they were quite nice) I’ll also mention that many modern hotels have a desk and chair for business travelers Unfortunately, we did not have a desk or a chair in our room My wife was working remotely for a portion of our stay and it was not a comfortable space for workIt seems as if they started renovating an older hotel but for whatever reason stopped half way through If they fully updated it and improved on the things mentioned above, it would a really nice place that I would love to return to

Been here a few times now so safe to say I can write a reviewNever had a single issue with the rooms here or the staffThe only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars ill get into

The pool area always has a sewage smell It’s really unsettlingAnd that’s the reason for only 4 star But is the pool and jacuzzi clean? yesParking is not an issue Plenty of it Oddly this hotel is EXTREMELY QUIETYou’ll be able to sleep in without any boat noise or dock noise at all It’s actually quite awesomeThe food in the hotel isn’t to bad either I’ve had quite a few things at this hotel and never had an issueBut let me go on about how the staff has really made my stays greatThey always let me park my car in front of the door and leave it there overnight ( if I bring an exotic car ) they’ve always been very professional and helpful with baggage as well they go out of their way to make sure your stay is a good one And to me, that will bring me backSo would I recommend this hotel? Most definitelyIt’s right on the water in the harbor/docks It’s SUPER quiet and the staff will go out of their way to make sure your stay is goodBe sure to checkout the happy hour of course!

I am only giving this place a 3 star because of the location and their gym amenities The area is cool and has a nice walkway around the port and is also a good running path Their gym has good basic amenities that will get the job done

Other than that, their rooms was basic and old It definitely needs renovation including their hallways We ate one night for dinner at the restaurant in the hotel and we waited for some time for our food to arrive Our waiter was slow, not that attentive, and not that nice And every time we pass by the kitchen area it had a weird and bad odor coming out from the area This hotel needs to upgrade their rooms, hallways, and their restaurant including their menu

Kelsey Navarro

EDIT: management did call and seemed sincerely apologetic We will give the hotel another stay and update the reviewThe hotel is in an awesome location

The staff was friendly upon arrival and the process was quick We booked a marina facing room ( rm 239) My review is for the room itself We paid around 300~ ( including 15$ for one night of self parking) The head boards on both beds were stained a weird yellow color on multiple spots The walls had stains/ splatter marks everywhere The TV was not working consistently The bathroom had dead bugs splattered on the roof and the carpet was stained brown in the high traffic areas This room did not meet our expectations, but they were booked and we couldn’t “switch”The restaurant was good, but a bit pricey We did not visit the pool, since we were only there one nightI think we would stay one more time to see if we had the unlucky room (haha), but I don’t think the room was worth how much we paid

We arrived a little late to check in and only needed to stay one night for a work training and the staff was super attentive and friendlyCommunication was amazing about parking and I really loved that the gates are closed, with keys to get in and out as we needThe room was spotless and cute

Everything is clean, friendly staff Coffee in the morning and overall a wonderful stay!I will be recommending this location and we will be sure to reserve rooms here, next time we are in the area It’s a short distance to Long Beach and even walking distance there are a few restaurants and convenience stores


My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel and absolutely loved it It felt like our lil apartment The owners opened the gate for us for the parking when we got in at 3am, which we were so grateful for

John was also amazing and provided excellent customer service by shipping my boyfriend’s phone charger we left behind to Vegas He went out of his way to text me the confirmation # We will definitely stay here at this beautiful hotel again Great customer service experience and clean room I would definitely reccomend this place to everyone I also loved the different color doors Thank you so much!

Martin Mendoza

Very good inn for the price The rooms are small but are kept really clean They close the parking gate at 10PM so you can’t park inside if you come after that, there’s plenty of parking out on the street

The location is really good as well, you’re about a 10 minute drive from downtown Long Beach and about a 15 minute drive to Ports O’ Call

The beds are the absolute worse! The bed is extremely hard, you can feel every spring digging into your back, makes the loudest noise with every move! It was hard to stay asleep when you u consciously shift in your sleep If you have back problems this will definitely make you sufferI advised the staff serval times and even 1 week ahead of time

I would require a 1st floor room with immediate access to outside since I have trouble with stairs due to an injury When it was time to check in they said I had to go a second floor room, that had no immediate access to outside for fresh air When I went to complain because it’s difficult and painful to go up and down stairs, they brushed me off with the absolute worst customer service No sorrys just shrugs and oh wells Even got some attitude when I complain that I kept checking in to make sure they know I needed an outside room being on the first floor, can you believe that?!They have a tiny little trash can for their kitchen which is ridiculous since you can fit anything in it especially when you have an entire kitchen The cooking ware looks very run downAlso I find it very awkward and weird how the vents are so conveniently facing the bed, which I advised y’all checking before doing anythingAlso the room we were in had this huge window that faces the living room and part of the bedroom And the ONLY curtain u can close was a SHEER SEE THRU curtain!!!!!! Talk about not being able to walk comfortably thru the room without the possibility of someone looking inside! It was beyond stupid and lack of privacy!I found it very inconvenient and weird how the card you use to open your room can be deactivated if accidentally brushed against your phoneI’m also shocked there was no jacuzzi, very disappointedAlso found yellow stains on our white bed It looked fresh and it made me feel disgustedTheir breakfast was not appetizing, if you take the risk of staying here , you will see what I mean when you go down to breakfastOverall I don’t recommend coming here Sticking with the resident inn by Marriott As someone who is well traveled, this is not the place
