My family and I love this hotel! Perfect location by the beach, spacious clean rooms, and the hotel staff are all so helpful and very nice! Especially Caesar, he is a big reason why we choose this hotel every time we come to the area, he's awesome! We will continue to stay there whenever we visit the beach

I'm not sure why this hotel is so pricey, as it's just your basic Holiday Inn Express--in fact, a bit lower-end.

Check-in was very slow. I don't understand the point of reserving online and entering your card details online when the staff has to then re-enter everything again on arrival. Other hotels have a much more together check-in.

The room was clean and large, with a mini-refrigerator and a microwave. Our room overlooked PCH, so it was very noisy. Thank goodness for earplugs and white noise apps.

The room was dimly lit, and smelled moldy. The bed was comfortable enough, and had all non-feather pillows--nice for allergy sufferers. The nightstands on each side of the bed had a power outlet--great for charging your phone while sleeping. Every hotel should have these.

The bathroom was well-lit. The shower/tub combo was clean. The shower tile grout was scrubbed clean with barely a trace of mold. The shower water pressure was decent, and hot water stayed hot. The toilet paper was rough; hotels should not cheap out on toilet paper!

The free WiFi was strong. The hotel has a free parking garage and a small open-air parking area.

We might stay here again if in the area but might first look elsewhere.

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay here. The staff were very friendly, offered us a room upgrade. Free parking, WiFi, and breakfast make this very affordable. Close to the beach and some cool shops.
There's a small gym and pool,nothing special but clean and functional. The breakfast buffet was basic but plentiful, great if you have kids.
Over all we saved money staying here, and would have stayed an extra two days had it not been booked solid.

Chose this property because of the proximity to the beach, price, and free breakfast. But it was much much more. We were delighted by the clean, newly updated room, ocean view from our balcony and above all the friendliness and genuine sincerity of the staff. Cesar was particularly helpful, checking us in with a smile a couple of hours before check in time. He gave us directions to everywhere we wanted to go. The housekeeping staff was very friendly as well. I found the breakfast room very appealing with plenty of seating. Although there were many choices, eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, breads, yogurt, etc, not too many healthy options. However, the manager advised that soon they will be updating their menu to include more fruits and a yogut bar. They do offer yogurt as well in several flavors. The breakfast room is well stocked and kept very clean. Even the hallways and stairwells smell fresh. They have some computers for those who don't have laptops and smart phones. It's very convenient to the beach and the airport. I would recommend you ask for a room that faces the parking lot, because if you face the front or side it may be a little noisy as Pacific Coast Highway is a busy thorofare. Also, our room 335 had an ocean view over an adjacent apartment building but I think most would probably be obstructed by the apartment building. Either way the balcony is nice. For the staff, and room comfort and cleanlienss I would not hesitate to recommend this property. We look forward to coming back soon!

Room Tip: Ask for one that faces the back parking lot, as facing the front or side street may be noisy if you...

We were in town for a wedding and had our 13month old with us. The staff were amazingly helpful, polite, and courteous. The only downside, which isn't a downside to me, is their parking lot. It is small and the spaces are tight but it is 4 blocks from the beach and very clean!

Thank you for your kind review about your stay at our Hotel. It motivates us to do even better whenever we receive wonderful reviews from our guests. We hope you had a fantastic time at the wedding, and your 13 month old was able to get a good night's sleep while staying here. Unfortunately due to our high density location, we are somewhat limited in space, but we are able to accommodate every guest room with sufficient parking spaces, and our rooms are more spacious than the average Holiday Inn Express hotel. We are happy to hear that you also got to enjoy the beach during your stay. Thank you for the positive words about our staff. We hope to see you again during your next visit.

Since this hotel was literally 4 blocks from our son's apt. it was a perfect choice for our stay. The other reviews were pretty consistent- it looked like a great, reasonably-priced hotel- so we booked it.

We didn't rent a car, as our son was able to pick us up from airport., and everything else was walking distance. Our only goal was to visit with him and get some R & R, and SUN! (when you're from IL, getting a tan in March is a BIG deal- especially for a teenage girls when it's a month before Prom!)

The hotel is very clean, comfortable beds/pillows, good breakfast, USA Today at your door every morning...the only disappointment was that we were not able to sunbathe at the pool. (it's basically an indoor pool with one side open to the street.)

The decor is fresh and updated. Loved the way the breakfast room was laid-out.
There's even a TV in the breakfast room, so one day I stayed down there and watched my fav. HGTV show (while my daughter was still sleeping upstairs). They don't have HGTV in the rooms, though, which I found odd.

One day we rented bikes from a shop on the beach (10 min. walk from the hotel) to ride down to Redondo Beach.
Our flight home was later in the afternoon, so we'd ask, and were granted, a 2pm check-out. This was great because we were able to enjoy the beach in the morning, and get back to the hotel to shower before leaving for the airport.
I thought that was a very nice gesture on the side of management- it made a HUGE positive impression on us.

Cab/limo ride back to the airport- only cost $35.
Overall- a very pleasant and economical vacation.

Thank you for your thorough review of your stay at our Hotel. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the breakfast room and you were able to watch HGTV there. We apologize that you were unable to watch that channel in your room. The weather is very nice during this time of the year and we are glad you were able to take advantage of that to ride a bike to the beach. We try our best to accommodate all our guests, and we were able to grant you the late check out on your day of departure. Thank you for taking the time to write your review and thank you for choosing to stay with us for your very pleasant and economical vacation. We hope to have you stay with us again during your next visit.
