Absolutely forgettable place, where you might land if wanting to be close to LAX. Expenseive for what you get. Poor, unhelpful service, depressing rooms. We had a reservation problem, which they didn't help us solve. We won't go back.

I booked a last minute reservation with the Wave Hotel based on great reviews and of course great last minute rate only to find the agents very unprofessional. I was driving in from Vegas and just calling to let them know that my mother, daughter and I would be in late only to be told "well I'm not sure how...

This was by far the filthiest hotel I have stayed in, and i have been in quite a few. Mold, mold, mold in the bathroom everywhere. Hair folded in my bath towel most likely from the housekeeper. Broken, outdated appliances and furnishings. The leaking pipes in the underground parking left water stains on my car. Housekeeping didn't show and when...

I booked this hotel through Expedia for a stay on 6/25/16. The cost of the hotel was $163.90. I was unable to stay at the hotel and gave the room to my brother-in-law who happened to be in town. I checked in and was assigned room 217, got two keys and gave them to my brother-in-law along with the wifi...

Pros - Friendly staff - Comfortable clean bed - Continental breakfast Cons - Dated and broken TV in room - Peeling wallpaper - Bathroom in need of paint/maintenance - Noisy A/C unit Bottom line. Inexpensive place to stay. Not even close to a "nice" place.

Close to the beach without a car then this is not for you. The walk is about 1 1/2 miles to the pier and it's up hill and down dale.. If in a car then you have the worry of the traffic warden who is very active. The hotel is fine. There are many domestic repairs which need attention but...

I recently stated here with my two children for a baseball tournament in redondo, I was on a budget and this hotel went above and beyond my expectations, yes it is older and there are no frills, but my kids LOVED the pool, and it was located very close to both games I was to attend, the staff was Very...

My experience with trip advisor was very poor. I wanted to cancel my second night and Trip advisor put the cancel date as 6/13 however it was 12:01AM on the 13th. Very deceptive and sneaky. I would have called on the 12th if that was the deal. I would never book with Trip advisor again.

It has a bed, a TV and it's not far from the airport. That's the end of the good stuff. The pool had rubbish in it, I had to get them in at 9pm to unclog the sink, we didn't have a remote, the elevator hasn't been serviced since 2013 and they couldn't check us in until 6pm which was...

Look, this is an older place, and the prices reflect this. If you need brand new, look for a Holiday Inn express. The location is excellent, and this is why you stay in this part of town. Good, secure parking. It was a quiet, inexpensive place to stay and I would stay here again.
