“Couldn't ask for a better way to experience Hermosa Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

I loved my stay at the Grandview Inn. It was my first time visiting Hermosa Beach, and the location of the Grandview Inn couldn't have been more perfect. It is located on a quiet block, right by the beach, and just a block away from great restaurants, bars and shops. A terrific bike shop, Hermosa Cyclery, is also just over a block away, and seeing the area by bike is definitely the way to go. The person at the front desk was helpful, calling me a cab when needed and recommending a good breakfast spot (Good Stuff on the Strand has excellent breakfast options!).

The room was very clean, spacious, comfortable and modern. Loved the shower! It's also nice supporting a family-owned business.

We had a 24 hour stopover in LA. This hotel was about 20 mins from the airport, just off a great beach with loads of cafes, restaurants and bars nearby. It is just rooms with a concierge but we sat outside a cafe off the beach for breakfast and watched the joggers and beach volleyball games. The service was very good, the room large, modern and clean with a big bed, lots of complentaty toiletries etc for a comfortable night. We should have stayed longer.

Lovely location near enough on beach. Right next door to Jeffers - great to rent bikes/boards/ body boards. We gad room above 'parking lot' wouldn't have noticed if not for negative TripAdvisor reviews. Who wants to stay in your room when you're right on the beautiful beach! Loads of pro-volleyball on the beach and you can easily walk to manhattan beach or rendondo. Manhattan is closer & less 'working class'. South Bay galleria not too far for a rainy day! Get booking before someone else does!

3 of my girlfriends and I stayed here early Seprember for a girls wkd away!!! The location was fantastic and the rooms were plenty large enough for all the shoes, clothes, and girls stuff. We stayed on the top floor and had beautiful CA sunset views of the ocean. The service was great. We felt safe and there were great restaurants and bars in walking distance. A quick cab ride to manhattan beach for a night out is a must!! What a fun weekend. This is by no means a mega resort or the Ritz, but it is perfect for a California Beach town!!! Can't wait to go back!!!

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
