“Clean, comfortable, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Manhatten Beach has lots of great restaurants and the beach is very nice. This hotel is in a great location, although we didn't walk to the beach. It was nice to have a little more than just a bed, we liked the addition of the kitchenette and couch, everything was clean and comfortable. We were there on a Monday and enjoyed the managers BBQ with lots of burgers, salads, wine and beer a VERY nice added touch. I would stay here again if I'm in the area.

Room Tip: we were at the back and it was quiet, I could see some near the front a being a bit louder

We stayed 6 nights in total here on a fly drive vacation. First 3 nights and last 3 nights. Overall recommend this hotel location is good close to airport and beach. Local super market is 5 mins away.

Stayed in the 2 bed pent house which is quite spacious.

Pros
Good location 5 mins to the beach, 25mins to universal, 5mins to Ralph's
Free breakfast
Full kitchen facility
Helpful/friendly staff
Free Parking
Local tours pickup from hotel
Penthouse rooms spacious

Cons
Nothing really - the outside of the property looks like it could do with updating

Room Tip: Penthouse are loft style rooms go for these if you need 2 rooms

I stayed at the Residence Inn for a two week business trip and found that the accommodations were good. They offered a good breakfast and a few days a week had an event in their tent pavilion.

The rooms were clean and had all I needed to do my work and relax during the down time. My only complaint was the parking. There was next to inadequate parking and more than twice I had to park quite a few buildings away to get a parking place.

The relatively short distance too many restaurants and being only a few miles from many beaches it was an ideal location. Each night within a 15-20 minute drive I was able to see the sites of the area and enjoy the local foods. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

After being in two hotels of this chain in our trip to Los Angeles, I can say with certainty that this is my first choice from now on. If you are traveling with family, the suits of the Residence inn by Marriott are a perfect place to sleep. The kitchen, the breakfast, the nice rooms and welcoming staff are all making these hotels a perfect home away from home. This hotel in particular was renovated lately
and it all looks beautiful.

Room Tip: All the rooms look like little apartments

Our family has stayed at this residence inn several times for summer beach trips. An extensive remodel has happened since our previous stay. The lobby, pool area, dining area, really all the public areas are beautiful. The new fire pit is a great addition at the pool.

We will definitely return!

At the time of this review the hotel had just completed its renovation. The updated roods are nice but the rates have gone up considerably.

Nice flat screen TV's in the rooms. To bad the selection of stations and the speed of the channel changer both stink.

Light switches. The rooms have new style motion sensing switches. In order to turn the switches on you need to press a button located under the sensor. Three of my rooms switches had crushed in sensors from people struggling to turn them on. They need to flip the switch install or get better quality switches.

The best part of the hotel is the staff. Everyone I met is very friendly and helpful. It starts at the top with the hotel manager who I met at his Monday night August guest BBQ.

Those of you who travel know the Residence Inn. The typical issues exist in all of them.

If you are on the first floor and you get someone who walks on their heels staying above you, it can be like living in a drum. Even the steps of a light footed person are easily heard. They could have taken care of this during construction by spending a few thousand dollars for floors in their entire complex. At his point, I can't understand why Marriot doesn't foam insulate the space between the floors.

Getting food at the morning "free buffet" is taxing. When you stay at a MGS hotel that is used by families it can be annoying to say the least. The people act as if they're "Preppers" gathering food. I constantly saw people taking more food than a family could possibly eat, sandwiched between two plates headed to their rooms. The food is wiped out the second it is replaced and you need to wait quite a while for the food to be replaced if it is at all.

There is not enough parking. Every night people ended up parking in the fire lanes.

Getting out of the hotel on Sepulveda can be difficult in morning traffic.

I don't know of a solution for this is.

I'd still stay there again, as it is the best option of its type around.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are loud because of upstairs walking noise.
