“This is not a seaside Motel!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

The hotel met our expectations in all but one way; it is not located close to the seaside at all. I should have used a map search on the computer to find out sooner, but I didn't.
It takes close to 10 minutes driving or over 30 minutes walking to reach the beach.
The owner and his staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms were OK and clean. The Motel is located on Artesia Blvd which is busy and noisy 24/7. A good night's rest was hard to come by. In addition there are several "long term" tenants who give the motel a very depressed atmosphere.
Can't recommend it and will not stay there again, despite the good intentions of the owners.

Room Tip: There are no quiet rooms here. It's all right next to a major road.

Hello, thank you for your feedback. We try to make it clear on all advertising / marketing we are located approximately 2 miles from the ocean. We apologize we did not meet your expectations in terms of location and proximity to ocean. In terms of the rooms, we try and continue to update the rooms for a more pleasant guest experience, and will continue to do so. Again, we truly do apologize for not living up to your expectations, but we will continue to try and improve our guest experiences as best we can. Thank you.

Nice clean hotel, about a 30 minute uphill walk to the beach, but worth the journey! The only thing that made me mad was he charged us $20 extra for 4 people in the room, even though I had a room with 2 queens. That unnecessary and just a way to make extra cash on their part.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs so you don't hear thumping.

Hello,
Thank you for your feedback. It appears from your feedback you had a good experience with your stay, other than the additional charge for the additional 2 people in the room. We try to keep our room rates as competitive as possible, and therefore only charge additional regardless of room type after the first 2 people in the room. Again, we apologize you felt it was not necessary, and we will take this into consideration in the future. We appreciate the feedback, and hope to see you again in the future. Thank you for staying with us at the Seaside Motel.

I normally stay in nicer hotels and after trying several here, this is it. Great rates, clean, convenient, extremely thoughtful and gracious staff. I am extremely surprised and gratified.

It's not a 5 star hotel but this is better than many 3 or 4 star hotels I have stayed in around venice.

Most the time My husband and myself don't even consider a 1 star motel, but after looking on line at all the great reviews I would have been crazy to stay anywhere. We got there about 11:00am and the Manager Kay was kind enough to let us park our car in the small lot before check-in time and we were also able to check it to the room. He apologized for having to put us into a small room because that was all he had left. Not knowing what the room would look like we were a little scared. Once we got to the room it was just right. The room had a microwave and refrigerator . The bigger rooms are the same price and have kitchenettes. We came up to Redondo to bike ride and only planned on staying the hotel to sleep. However, we did have a big screen tv with cable and free internet. The motel is right off Artesia Blvd and surprisingly was quiet. Room was clean and bathroom was clean. This motel is only 1.5 miles away from the beach and 24 hour sport is around the corner on PCH along with Albertson Grocery Store just down the street.. We will definitely come back here.

Room Tip: I would call and make reservation and talk to The Manager Kay and ask for a kitchenette. Great Pric...

My family and I came in from New Mexico for a funeral, staff couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming. The rooms were very clean, parking lot and surrounding area were very well kept. The price was very reasonable, considering all the other places we looked at were well over $100 a night. I will absolutely stay there again on our next visit.

I had a one day business trip to South Bay and decided to try out a small motel that I had driven by numerous times when I lived in the area. The property is well maintained and has a great location, about one mile back from Pacific Coast Highway. My room itself was small, but featured a comfortable queen size bed, flat screen, free internet, refrigerator and microwave. Bath was very clean and had marble counters. While the rooms surround the courtyard parking area, it was also very quiet and sound proof. If you want to spend under $100 in the Hermosa-Redondo area instead of $200, it's a good bet. I would stay again

Room Tip: I stayed on the first floor, but heard no overhead noise

We booked this room for a 4 night stay and felt right at home. The room was very clean as was the bathroom. The beds were very comfortable which gave a great sleep. The room had a flat screen TV, fridge and a microwave which made it easy for eating in the room. The room also had a table and 2 chairs. 23 min on the number 8 bus from LAX bus stops minutes from the motel. Grocery store within 5 min walk and the 130 bus takes you to the beach in 10 min. Great location.
