Issues: 1) Vanity light out, did not fix when asked 2) Sink pools up water, pipes need snaking 3) Wall light switches not tied to lamps 4) WIFI weak, unreliable 5) Tube TV - cable signal poor (32" TV are cheap enough) 6) Old carpets, smell 7) Bathroom wall, trim rotting Positives (why such a shame for above shortcomings): 1)...

Location is not too bad, drive 3-4 blocks park up and walk another few blocks to the beach. On arrival the clerk at the front desk hardly said hello and showed no interest in us at all. Our room was not ready so we were moved into the one next door. It smelled of very very cheap air freshner/cigarette smoke,...

Nice location, free parking and a decent layout but pretty rough around the edges... ironing board is broken, big time... unusable. No bath towels the first day, light in the sink area where you brush teeth/ comb hair broken, stand up lamp in corner broken, just leaning against the wall. Some serious housekeeping failures here

O.K., it does get a bit moist on the floors around the outside front of the rooms.. but this is caused by the guests running the air conditioners all day and not drying themselves after swimming and then returning to their rooms. it's biggest fault is that it is very busy and in demand right through the summer; and the...

Moldy bathroom, food still in the refrigerator from the last guests, the carpets were soggy wet, stinky throughout. We had to turn around and leave. When we got back to the front desk, two other families were there with the same issues. Hotels.com actually refunded our non-refundable payment. Went to the Mariott, more money but oh so clean! Worth it!

Wanted $25 extra to book in at midday, even though room was ready. Sheets were crinkled, yellowing, thin and had to be inspected if they were used before and still not sure! Fitted sheet and underblanket had no elastic left in them so when you turned over at night they both moved with you, exposing the mattress after turning a...

We use to love coming here. Cheap decent rooms, heat pool and Spa and a so-so, but free breakfast. Close enough to Manhattan Beach. Our last visit was bad. The pool was cold, the spa was luke warm, the breakfast, some how, was worse. My wife got sick from the room from the spa or room. Not a pleasant stay...

Stayed here for the night before flying out of LAX the following day and enjoyed the stay. The hotel is in a nice location and seemed perfectly safe for walking around day or night. It's about 15mins walk to the promenade at Manhatten Beach and once there, we found a few nice bars/restaurants. There's also a shopping mall with a...

Location was good, one mile walk to the beach. Busy street but hotel walls kept out most of the noise. Rooms were very basic, tv and Internet worked intermittently. Had to go to lobby to get Internet to write this review. Possibly it is difficult to buy California king sheet sets as the sheets were old and stained. This is...
