Stayed 3 nights in Jan 2013. Door key card system did not work and staff just lied about it.....very aggravating. Washer and dryer did not work. Toaster in breakfast room has not worked for over a year. The mgmt is too bloody cheap to make this place work and is just letting it run into the ground. Can only get...

We stayed here for one night only and it was reasonable but nothing special. The reception staff were friendly and helpful but the rooms were a bit tired and needed an up date. The rooms were were in (we booked 3) were all quite dark and outdated. We drove to the beach as we weren't there long but it would...

The price was pretty good, and the room was nice. The beds were ok, not super soft, but it was clean and comfortable for the most part. The one thing that annoyed me was the fact that there are no blinds on the windows, and my room was near some stairs. We ended up putting one of my long scarves...

We had first to figure out where it is. you couldnt expect a 5 stars hotel at that price. Lady at the reception look like she had enough of her job! it's a bit noisy and if you can figure out how the darn lights switches are working at the first try, i'll send you 2$ :) Ok to sleep...

Terrible hotel!! Leaking ceilings, damp rooms, mouldy, closed pool and jacuzzi due to government health and safety regulations and dirty rooms! Unsafe to stay at this place due to wet ceilings and chance that the roof will cave in!!

This "Hotel" is not great, it is what it is and if all you are looking for is a Room to sleep the night as you pass through then this place is fine for that. They do stink like smoke, but after a 15 hour flight we did not care, we just wanted to sleep before moving on to the...

Air cond is loud Squeaky plumbing going on throughout the night Wifi weak...

Throughout our three days at Wave Hotel, we were thinking what an ideal hotel to stay in LA when you don't want to be too far from LAX and be in walking distance of a beach. So, great location and the convenience of an LAX shuttle service. But our good opinions all came unravelled on the day of check-out. That...

Our room smelled of cigarette smoke--we couldn't get a non-smoking room. The only room we could get was a handicapped room. The rate was good, but we would have liked a different room. We stayed 2 nights and they said they were completely booked and we couldn't move to another room. We loved the pool area though. It was very...

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)...
