“Lovely hotel, great beach location, helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Grandview Inn for 3 nights. The room was a good size and it was equipped with everything we needed including ironing equipment, microwave, fridge, hair dryer and lots of toiletries including a razor, make up wipes and nasal strips. The room also looks exactly like it does on the website which is always a bonus- it was modern and clean. Not a great view from the balcony but that didn't matter to us as we just wanted to be out at the beach anyway.

The hotel is situated one street along from the main street in Hermosa and probably a 30 second walk to a gorgeous sandy beach with volleyball nets. There is a reasonably priced hire shop 2 doors from the hotel where you can rent bikes, roller skates, surf boards etc for either a few hours or a whole day. There is a paved pedestrian street which allows you to walk as far as Venice Beach (I think) it took us 30 minutes to walk to Manhattan Beach which was a must- gorgeous houses to look at on the way and lots of surfing to watch when you get there. The main street in Hermosa had a good selection of restaurants and bars (our favourite was Watermans). However it isn't crazy, busy or loud, if you want mad nightlife Hermosa is not for you but if you want a beach and a few drinks at night, this place is ideal.

The reception staff were very helpful with booking taxis for us. It took around 15 minutes to get to the airport and 45 minutes to get to Santa Monica (where we did a Day in LA tour- highly recommended). Please allow extra time for travelling around by car though as the traffic in LA is very busy!

To sum up- Grandview Hotel is a lovely hotel if you want a beach holiday with dinner and drinks at night, whilst also having the option of a day trip to LA/ Hollywood :)

I have stayed at the Grandview Inn on several occasions, I started staying there while in Hermosa Beach in 1986. The staff and location are just wonderful. I just stayed there for three nights, and all was great. I would like to than Manny the owners nephew for being so helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Hermosa. The Mexican restraunt just out the door, La Playita is very good, and right next door, is a place to rent surfboards, and all other beach sporting equipment. Jeffers Beach rental is the name, and he was really easy to work with. Thanks for the great time to all of them.

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms are worth the upgrade.

This is a family run Nice hotel, good location but you need a top floor room overlooking the beach to make it extra special. The rooms are a good size and the beds comfortable. There is a decent bathroom with good shower. However why 4 out of 5 is the hot water tap (faucet) is soooooo slow to give hot water in the morning and evening. The rooms have good if a little loud air con. And they have a safe! The location is good with everything close. For breakfast we used Starbucks about 2 minutes away.

Room Tip: Get a top floor room

The location is awesome. Steps from the beach and there is a place next door that serves great breakfasts.
but the harsh lights in the rooms are enough to ruin your stay. They should replace them with some modern lamps that give a warm glow. Seriously don't turn them on in the middle of the night or you won't get back to sleep.

Price was right, The rooms were nicely appointed and the staff were very helpful! After long flight from Australia we were pleasantly surprised when the staff bent over backwards to get our room ready early. The rooms are spacious and have some modern touches. Top floor has sea views but the first floor at the end has a lovely balcony that can see the ocean as well.

Room Tip: End room on first floor has sea views from balcony.

This is the third time I have stayed here. The first two times were for business but this time I wanted to take my wife. We were lucky enough to get one of the rooms on the 2nd floor with an ocean view. The rooms are always clean and fresh and even though not the fanciest place I have stayed. The rooms are quite functional and spacious. The staff has always been helpful and courteous when I have stayed there. Best thing is the location at Hermosa Beach being on The Strand and about one block from Pier Ave. where there are numerous restaurants and shopping. Cant wait to go back !!

Room Tip: Second floor with ocean view. There really are only three that have a great view.

Superb Location - literally about 100 yards from beach!

Hermosa is a great place with 1 strip full of shops/bars/restaurants/clubs etc. Much preferred this place rather than going into central LA

Hotel looks brand new - very minimalist and modern

Spacious Rooms, nice ocean view. Free Wi-Fi and parking if you have a car. Not the cheapest place but would definitely recommend
