We needed a place within short distance of LAX for a flight out the next morning. We wanted a place on the beach so this seemed to fit the bill.
Check in was easy; we were in room 106 which was on the top floor of the main building (two floors up) and had a nice view of the ocean. No elevator though, so be aware if you have a hard time lugging stuff up the stairs you will want to ask for a different location. The room was newly renovated so came with some of the stuffiness of new carpet smells. It was also quite hot in the room because the a/c was off (understandable) and the room faces west so had all the afternoon sun. We opened the balcony door and it cooled off okay. The room had a cool glass enclosed shower that shows into the room--we were a couple staying there but if it were just friends it might get a little weird! 8-)
This location was great. It is several blocks up from the beach and a pretty strenuous hike back up if you are not athletically minded. We enjoyed the walk to and from the beach, were able to get a towel from the front desk. We walked back up and enjoyed some food at OB's down the street. I also grabbed some breakfast at Yolk next door before we left for the airport. So it is quite convenient. I only wish we had more time to explore MB, maybe next time!
All in all, we enjoyed the hotel and the location and would definitely consider staying there again.
