Pros: The hole vibe of the place.
Cons: Little dated. Carpet in restaurant really nice to be replaced.
Location: Near best beaches, fin.e dining and best beaches. And yes I repeated myself
This hotel has been around for years. Never stayed there so decided to give it try. Mid-modern look was classy. Kept waiting for Sinatra to show up.

Lovely hotel!

Posted Apr 25, 2017
A lovely hotel! Hotel staff all very friendly! Rooms very nice! Beds so comfortable! Swimming pool and patio all wonderfully relaxing areas! Restaurant in the hotel serves wonderful food with excellent service! Situated a leisurely 20-30 minute walk from the beach! I would definitely stay there again and refer all friends and family!

Good location , friendly staff

Posted Apr 17, 2017
Pros: Location to Manhattan Beach, Friendly Staff
Cons: More choice at Breakfast, Fresh room decor
Location: Beach, Restaurants. Bars, Running/biking on beach promenade
I have been staying at this hotel for business and please with the family over the last 6 years. It has an excellent location close (short Uber or walk/run) from the beach and restaurants. Although i really like the place and the staff are always friendly and helpfull i have noticed that the place is begining to look like it needs a freshen up. There is a new owner/Management company and have noticed cost cutting in little things like the breakfast . Still a good hotel and would recommend a stay here

OK Hotel.

Posted Mar 24, 2017
Pros: The rooms.
Cons: The gym
Location: Good.
I honestly have nothing great to say. The hotel itself was very nice. The room was very pleasant. The valet drivers are kind. The staff? Not too impressed. They really do not go out of their way. You ask them a question and the average answer is, "I wouldn't know that". The gym, is not a gym. It is a hotel room with broken equipment. My friend and I couldn't spend our time together because at least 3 of the machines were down the entire stay there.

Very pretty hotel close to the beach and nice room

Posted Mar 3, 2017
Pros: It's quiet and has a lovely outdoor courtyard.
This is a great small hotel located only 20 minutes from the beach. I was there for a workshop so its close proximity to amenities was very convenient. I ordered room service 3 times and the food was delicious and the staff courteous (and quick!). The only 'event' was that the toilet, whose handle had required jiggling to stop it from running, overflowed on my 3rd day. I was in the shower so didn't realize it was happening. Eek. When I phoned the front desk they were very apologetic and kind and quickly moved me to another room and took care of the situation quickly.
