“Won't be back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We have stayed at multiple Staybridge Suites locations...this was the worst.

The exterior of the property is in need of repairs and cleaning. Loose doorknobs, the smell of trash lingering on the back side of the property, overgrown landscaping.

Our suite had a musty smell and another in our building had the door open with fans exhausting the unit by maintenance.

I am giving the location 3 stars only because renovations underway. However, they were working on areas that didn't appear to need any renovations.

This wasn't our first choice but we needed two bedrooms...we won't be back

Stayed here for 2 nights on a road trip. Lovely accommodation with nice extra touches like popcorn pack for microwave etc. The free happy hour which happens every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 5.30 and 7.30 is great. I have stayed at other staybridge suites and got free wine, beer and soft drinks plus hit snacks at this time but here we got a full Indian meal. Really welcome after a long flight from the UK and taking 2 hours to get through passport control at LAX. Only slight hiccup. Was getting overcharged a night on my credit card but hopefully that will be sorted very quickly

Room Tip: There are no lifts so if you want a low floor leg them know in advance.

This was my first Staybridge Suites, but not my last. It is located out of town and that is reflected in the cost compared to what you would pay downtown. I was greeted by friendly staff who recognised me as a PCR member and upgraded me to a two bedroom, two bathroom suite, which was magnificent, and as I was collecting my daughter from the Airport on her arrival for a two week holiday with me and it was perfect for us. The rooms are large and 3 TV's in total. The breakfast was one of the best complimentary breakfasts I have ever had with a great selection on well cooked hot food and plenty of cold options. there is an excellent fitness room and also nice pool and hot tub outside, with a nice barbecue area to relax in also. I only stayed one night as we had already booked the Crowne Plaza down by the Marina for our next two nights, but next time will definitely come back for at least four or five days.

I flew into la and my Dad had booked the Staybridge Suites Torrance/Redondo Beach just for a nights rest. Well,as soon as I stepped in our magnificent two bedroomed suite I could have moved in! There are two fantastic bedrooms,both with huge beds and flat screen TV's. They are both en suite! One with a massive two person power shower and the other with bathtub with shower. They both also have toilets and vanity areas. The bedrooms have doors which shut off to keep them separate from the lovely lounge,again another flat screen large tv. Then to finalise there is a kitchen equipped with all facilities you may possibly need. I didn't get up for the complimentary breakfast but my Dad did and said it was nice with omelettes,waffle and pancake makers,fresh fruit etc. I had a quick look at the pool before leaving and was a lovely area with what look liked nice comfortable sun ends,a hot tub area and BBQ area. The lady at check out was ever so friendly and generally interested to hear about our travels. All in all I would most definitely stay here again and I am very fussy! I would recommend car hire as a couple of miles from the beach.

We stayed her the last week of June and were very happy with this hotel. The rooms are slightly smaller than at other Staybridge suites we have stayed at but it was very comfortable for the three of us, a good sized queen bed in the bedroom and a queen sized sofa bed in the lounge which was actually comfortable. The kitchen is very useful and there is a dishwasher, hob and microwave. The bathroom was large with a good shower.

The only negative was the free breakfast on weekends, which doesn't start until 7.30 and was very crowded, difficult to find a seat and long queues at the breakfast bar area. However on weekdays it started at 6.30 and we had no problems finding a seat, the breakfast is good everyone can find something to eat, and it is FREE.

During three week nights they had a Manager's party with free food, beer and wine, I thought this was a very nice touch. The pool area was good, at the beginning there were only 6 sun loungers but after the weekend they put more out and this was much better. The staff were very helpful, especially on check-in.

The area around is full of offices and factories but this was a very safe area and quiet.

There are lots of restaurants nearby, an In and Out burger place just round the corner, and two shopping malls within easy reach. South Bay Galleria was very good and had an outside part that had Nordstrom Rack and Ulta beauty and several other stores.

All in all I would highly recommend this place to stay whilst in LA, safe, clean and reasonably priced and convenient for getting around. It only took 20 minutes from the airport car hire to the hotel.

Family came out to the LA area and was looking for a place
that had easy access, separate bedroom and free breakfast at
a reasonable price.
Well, we found it and more.
Stayed here for 3 nights.
Perect location for our time in the LA area.
Our room was nice and comfortable, and was near the pool which was convenient.
Breakfast was nice as was the evening managers social.
Overall a pleasant experience and would definitely
stay there again.
Special recognition to Larry at the front desk and
Daniel in the breakfast room. Both guys were a pleasure
to deal with and a plus for the Staybridge brand.

Room Tip: If you don't mind some noise during the afternoon/evening from the pool area, request a room wit...
