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

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

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

We arrived very early, extremely tired after a night flight The staff was wonderful and told us to get some breakfast at their place and took care off all of our luggage After that we went to the beach with beach chair and bath towels from the hotel

They gave us an early access to the room and the luggage was already taken care ofThe room was a little bit smaller than it looks like on the pictures but the view was fantastic Big bathroom The bed was amazing but the sofa bed was terrible to sleep on for our teenagers The madras was thin and there was always some noise when mowing around during the nightAs this was pretty expensive nights compared to other hotel this period, we was surprised that they didn’t make the sofa bed before night time We took some pillows from our bed to the sofa bedThe most sad part is that the bathroom was not clean when we checked in On the floor under the sink there was a lot of red something and was easy to spotI told the reception and they said they would take care of it Later that evening they gave us extra new towels, but the floor was still the same… I told they about this the next morning and had the same answer as they day before The day went by and no one had cleaned the bathroom The next day I had to go look for the cleaner’s my self All the staff on the hotel was super nice and friendly A big plus

Our stay has been wonderful for the past few yearsThe hotel is in a great location and the staff has always been wonderfulMy family has been to this location for at least 3 years now

Every year, as we leave the premises we have scheduled our vacation for the next year It’s always the same time to celebrate a birthday This year we even spent 2 more days than our usual To my dismay, tonight’s evening manager tells me to my face that there is really nothing special about my family coming every year It is “supply and demand” and we are not any different from any other customer!! Really???I was trying to buy book our next year’s celebration as she was telling me thisI told her that I was extremely appalled!Is this what her company really expects of her??If that is the case, there shouldn’t be any customer loyalty to the very people that we believed had our interests always in their priority? My family is extremely disappointed 🙁

Jose Alonso

My Family and I (party of 9) booked 2 adjacent rooms together for the 4th of July weekend and we had an amazing experience! The staff was wonderful, great to talk to, easy to request items, and the hotel and rooms were clean The room was larger than standard, with a king bed and a foldout couch plus a kitchenette with a cooktop and refrigerator and microwave Plenty of space for storing all the luggage plus beach items

The Hotel provided beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, and kids sand toys, all complimentary! This is our new home away from home, definitely recommended to all!

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

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

Amber Tilley

We stayed in the private room and had very mixed feelings about the placeLocation: we loved the location during the day It was super convenient, and we loved walking all around OB

Unfortunately at night it was so loud it was impossible to sleep There is no A/C, so you have to leave the windows open The entire room was shaking from the noise until at least 2amCleanliness: the sheets seemed to be freshly laundered but as we were leaving, we found trash from a previous visitor under the bed The bathroom was decently clean but definitely not the most clean hostel I’ve ever stayed atComfort: this is where we had the biggest problem The bed was rock hard I’m not sure if they had other rooms available because they charge $20 to change rooms after check inJust another thing to be aware of They have a policy where you can’t have anything but water in your room Not a huge deal, but we do enjoy takeout occasionally after a long day of traveling, so it was a bit annoyingOverall we wouldn’t stay there again, but you won’t find anything as cheap in the area

Anthony Tilley

First, Fantastic location! If you’re going to be up partying all night then this is the place for you The downside is that the hostel is literally over a live music bar that plays all night so if you are more of an early riser then maybe look elsewhere The bed and walls vibrated with music, ear plugs are not enough

Also the private room wasn’t as clean as I would have hoped but not terrible compared to other hostels

John Ryan Barnhart

Surf City Hostel features two separate lounge areas, a communal bathroom + showers, plus one and a half that are private if that’s more your preference (body wash + shampoo are included free of charge) I felt super safe and secure in the hostel as the front/back entrance are closed in the evening and reception is open until 2:00am There is a locked luggage storage room and lockers located inside each room

The whole hostel is cleaned daily The wifi was fast enough to work remotely and complete my schoolwork There are bars, restaurants, and cafes all centrally-located right below the hostelAngelica was inviting and welcoming, she knew every answer to any question about activities & happenings in the area Audrey is an absolute customer service master – she always has fun stories and informational tidbits to make the most out of your stay All of the volunteers were an absolute pleasure in every way and meeting them offered a chance to learn about different cultures and languages (I learned a bit of French during my stay, and was able to practice my Spanish) 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy their stay away from home Thanks Surf City Hostel, maybe next time I will actually go surfing 😉

The location was great and the room was very clean Had one very odd experience, though, we left the room and had the maid service hanger on the door We came back to find all our towels were gone but nothing had been cleaned, bed still unmade, etc

We had to go down to the front desk to ask for towels The view of the beach/ocean was pretty good – if you don’t mind looking beyond the exhaust and a/c vents on the restaurant nearby Free onsite parking is always a plus Good ammenities — microwave, coffee maker, mini fridge, nice toiletries


Horrible experience ! One star is even too much ! Very noisy and disrespectful manager If you ask for an extra bed (extra cost of 30$!) you will get a very old removable bed from the 70’s with a mattress of 5 cm and a metallic bed structure It was so uncomfortable my son had to sleep on the floor despite the fact the carpet was full of dust mites

Good location but THE WORST EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD …after 60 countries visited ! I can’t unfortunately share here the pictures and the voice recordings I’ve taken to proof my words !

Michelle Cole

The location is amazing! BUT I wanted a peaceful staycation to clear my mind and got everything but My “city view” room was actually a view of the neighbors backyard Basically no privacy so no point in even going on the balcony

Then to make matters worse, the neighbors had a large loud party and with the paper thin walls the noise was unbearable Was told I couldn’t change rooms and no refund becuase the noise wasn’t coming from their property So pretty much, my problem, not theirs I took the loss, cut my trip short and went home

My wife and I were traveling recently and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights The hotel was clean, the front desk personnel were friendly and helpful The interior courtyard had a pool and fire pit which was a nice peaceful area with mature palms and nice landscaping

We used the laundry facilities, everything worked great Overall, a great experience and we would recommend this hotel to all travelers BTW, this is a pet friendly hotel,

Dan Welte

I had a great 1 night stay here last week Outstanding staff, highlighted by Lawrence and Rafael who were both very accommodating of me and some special needs I had while my dog battles down the street for her health Sonesta Select in Torrance is a warm, thoughtfully appointed environment in which to stay and work

They have a nice private courtyard with a pool and many outside tables They have a coffee bar, and the best feature of all is their massive lobby filled with tons of tables, chairs, TV’s and private booths This is a great place to take a meeting or get work done The beds and pillows are comfortable and most rooms have a narrow balcony if you need to burn one (which I don’t) The rooms are really clean Welcome to the West Coast, Sonesta I’m impressed


We enjoyed our stay The lobby is clean and staff is very helpful They have a coffee station in the lobby

Computers with a printer Parking is free, plenty of it The room was good Had big windows, I was able to keep a good eye on my car 🙂 They offer a pool with sitting areas Gas fire pit was cool Only reason I did not give 5 stars, there was leftover garbage in hall from the previous people that used the room We were not able to make coffee in the room, it was not stocked up with creamer/sugar But we will stay again if we are in the area

Sophy Evans

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

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

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

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

Just okay!! $50000 plus a night felt like $5000 a night

A/c stopped working last night of a three day stay Couldn’t open sliding door due to smoke from another balcony Got locked out of my room 3rd day Bathroom is lacking in lighting The shower curtain was useless water all over floor Towels are limited They call that a rain shower head? SeriouslyMake sure you have door dash Toast at breakfast service nearly broke our teeth (room service)The pluses are: The beautiful view from ocean side is awesome Sea lions awesome Valet were nice maids were nice


THIS IS A REVIEW ONLY ABOUT THEIR WEDDING EVENT OFFERINGSMy fiancee reached out to the hotel regarding having our wedding ceremony and reception there We met with what I presume is their Event Planner person Some of our family came along, so we could get their opinion as well

The Planner seemed to initially mislead us on the pricing, because all of us recalled her saying the per person price accounted for everything No mention of separate ceremony and reception room fees (which makes sense to us now) So, when we received a price estimate for a wedding package, it was much higher than the approximate calculations we previously did during our visit We brushed it off as a misunderstanding on our partA few weeks later we met with the Planner again, to try to bring the price down She mentioned the possibility of doing a day time wedding, which would be about $3000 cheaper We liked the idea, and provided updated information to the Planner She calculated an approximate total cost and we liked what we saw She said she would send us an official updated estimate in email My fiancee said the Planner said she would send it over the weekend, but she never did Finally, the following weekend my fiancee emailed the Planner asking for an update, to which the Planner replied that she was going to call my fiancee but realized she didn’t have her number She then asked for my fiancee to email her number to her We called BS on this, because the Planner had a whole week to do as she said she would, and never emailed my fiancee asking for any additional contact information until she was contacted by my fiancee My fiancee nevertheless gave her phone number, and the Planner didn’t call her that dayA week or so later, the Planner gets back to my fiancee, informing her that the Director said they won’t allow us to do a day time wedding on the day we want (a weekday), because they have businesses at the hotel during the week days This was not listed on the pamphlet for the wedding package offerings, and the Planner didn’t mention such a restriction eitherNeedless to say, we decided to not have our wedding at the Portofino Hotel Their customer service was horrible and they were unprofessional in their lack of effective and timely communication Such behavior is extremely disappointing, especially since it has to do with such a very important and special day, the planning of which is already stressful enough Get your act together Portofino People, because you look ridiculous

Markelle Reilly

Do not recommend This hotel was NOT worth the money Literally the only good thing was the view

$32 for parking is absolutely ridiculous being that we paid $400 per night for a small room that had no microwave We ordered room service for breakfast and got the notification saying it would be up to our room in about 30 minutes Hour and a half later it never showed up We couldn’t get ahold of the hotel or the restaurant to find out what was going on We finally got fed up with waiting and checked out My husband got this hotel as a surprise for our anniversary and we’ve honestly had a better stay at a Best Western that was way cheaper! I wouldn’t pay more that $200 for this hotel They’re basically robbing everyone

This hotel was AMAZING!!! The views of the ocean, the patio, the room decor, the cleanliness, the staff were so kind and accommodating and the location is my personal favorite so location deserves 100 starsReasons I gave it a 4 The biggest being that my neighbors made nonstop noise from about 9p to 4a that sounded like someone dropping a bowling ball every few minutes

In between the horrendous thunderous noise was chalkboard screeching noise I lost sleep completely Also the parking is terribly tiny, the room is a bit small and there was construction right at the propertyThat said, I’ll be booking my return to this location soon This is still my favorite because the vibe was so free and bright Hopefully neighbors and construction won’t be an issue I’ll be happy to park in the tiny spaces and will deal with a smaller than expected room size because everything else about it was above my expectations I’ll see you all soon!!!!

I really hate to give this review as I’m not a complainer at all but the staff give me no alternative Communication with the hotel was awful I asked before arrival via email what the hotel could offer outside of the standard packages for my wife’s birthday after chasing on numerous occasions with no reply I finally got a standard response of the packages offered on the website to which I declined (they weren’t to her liking) upon arrival I was told there were items in the room to celebrate (these weren’t agreed) when advised I hadn’t agreed to anything they said leave them to one side and we will refund you

We did this and I have since requested the refund 3 times via email (I can’t call as we are in the UK) and have received no response Service and communication is poor which is unfortunate for such a beautiful hotel Management clearly do not care about their standard of service!

Last week was my 2nd stay at the Sea Sprite & it was amazing!! A young guy with glasses brought our luggage all the way to the 3rd floor when he didn’t have to, I didn’t get his name but he was really great Anne checked us in again & was so pleasant My plans in LA are all over & can be far from the hotel but I don’t mind it because of the view & the amazing service they provide

I plan on staying here for all future trips to LA Thank you to all of the staff & the little guy with glasses!

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

A nice hotel with soaking tub and heated bathroom I stay there weekly on business Nothing fancy in the rooms but excellent price for the area

Air conditioning is a wall unit and these are a bit dated, so can be very loud However if you like white noise with sleeping, no big dealVery nice and professional staff

Daniel Zhang

I stayed here for a few nights when I visited LA over July 4th weekend in 2019 The hotel is in a convenient location right off a major road Both the day and night staff were very professional and courteous

The rooms were basic, but perfectly functional and decently quiet I appreciated the mini fridge and microwave There was also a large desk and chair where I could work on my laptop The toilet in the bathroom had a Japanese bidet with a heated seat and all kinds of settings, which was a first for me (this hotel seems to get a lot of Japanese business travelers) There was a restaurant and cafe in the lobby, but they never seemed to be openThe only major issue I experienced was that the parking lot was completely filled to capacity on multiple occasions when I came back late at night I mean not even a single parking space available When this happened, I had to parallel park overnight on an adjacent side street that was not very well-lit and littered with garbage

David Call

Only giving 2 stars because the staff is nice The hotel lacks every amenity that they showcase on their website No bar

No restaurant No coffee in lobby Cleaning service is not available unless by special request or else your room will only be serviced once a week The entire hotel outside of the lobby is dated and you feel like you are in a Best Western Tape on furniture Stains and dirty finishes Visible mold and grime I will definitely not come back here in the future and hope they can do better for the posterity of their hotel

This was an upscale hotel which seemed to be nicer than the area it was in The staff was attentive and very friendly The facility was young and in top condition

The beds were full size – queens would be much betterThey had clear security measures in place everywhere While I appreciate them keeping me safe, it made me think that the measures might be necessary and therefore I wasn’t as relaxed as I wanted to beWe stayed here for proximity to LAX for a morning flight and we would be happy to do so again

Robin Horton

The rely is not true I did not receive 20% off for my inconvenience My card was charged $454

00 for 2 nights I will post receipts if you post another misleading rely Upon my 2 day visit to the holiday Inn I was put in a room with a toilet that went out I was informed the hotel was sold out I had to remain in the room (GROSS) I did remain because checkout was at 11 am I ask for a credit for my inconvenience I was told a manager would have to contact me While checking out, I asked again and the staff spoke loudly you want a discount I found that rather ignorant and felt uncomfortable I was told I would get 20% off and it never happened Bottomline, I never received a credit and my $5000 hold was never removed from my credit card The staff act like they don’t understand English I don’t recommend this location

Sergio dC

Hotel is kind like not close to anything walkable and the restaurant has limited hours Just a “bulk hotel” with lots and lots of people but, the rooms are quiet Beds were comfy, great size pool and jacuzzi

Breakfast: you’ll probably end up paying for it so I’ll recommend to go somewhere else for that 4 stars based on the restaurant hours and that they’ve wanted to charge me for breakfast (you have to order whst you want so you better have an extra 20 minutes under your belt)

Hameed Holt

Stayed a week on Family vacationIn a pretty good location, fairly close to several attractions/entertainment options Beautiful beach within 8min of hotel; Manhattan Beach/Pier (Less busy than Santa Monica)Good staff service, with good breakfast, and reception food n beverage options

The Hotel does a decent job keeping the facility and rooms clean Just needs to be cleaned more frequently, if possible, and a little more thoroughlyOverall, a pretty satisfactory stay for the week!!!

Hai Parnes

The hotel located on the 405 But you don’t hear nothing They’re very kind clean, and just did remodel

Very good service! very recommend!! we had a lot of fun and a answer of all our requestLess good: If the Check is in 15:00 the room will not be ready before! also we were there 14 nights and the GYM where close because of broken mirror that didn’t fixed!but still we are recommended for this place the feeling it’s good you will love it


Overall the staff in the kitchen area really made our stay pleasant The Mexican and Filipino lady always greeted us with a smile each morning and offered to make waffles prior to it being busy, the free dinner offered from Mon-Thurs was an extra added bonus too, free wine selections and beer craft on tap The ladies offered to take our plates it was next level service

The cleanliness of the hotel was amazing only down fall was the fact that house keeping is only offered on certain days unless you request it with 24hours notice No daily house keeping Parking was $18 per day Another issue I had was they only had one set of elevators so if your room is on the other side of the building it was a far walk to the elevators There was stairs but it could be an issue if you have to carry things up etc overall nice hotel
